SURPRISE LANDING GUEST COTTAGE - BATTLES WHARF- BEAUTIFUL AREA

Fairhope Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Surprise Landing Cottage is in the quiet, secluded area south of Fairhope known as Battles Wharf.

We are located 1 mile north of Marriott's Grand Hotel and Lakewood's Robert Trent Jones Golf Course on Mobile Bay. Several other golf courses are nearby. We are a short drive to historic Mobile, the Battleship Alabama and the white sandy beaches of the Alabama Gulf coast.

The cottage is fully furnished and you would have use of our pier on beautiful Mobile Bay. Come and enjoy our spectacular sunsets.

There is a walking/biking trail practically at the back door and Fairhope's charming little shops are a short drive or bike away. The area is known for its many seafood restaurants on the Causeway and other local favorites nearby. Tanger's Outlet Center in Foley is a short 30 minute drive for great bargains and The Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort offers a huge variety of shopping and dining. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail shopping are a ten minute drive.

Fairhope's Arts and Crafts Festival takes place every spring and there are always local artists working in Fairhope. Mobile's Mardi Gras and Fairhope's own Mardi Gras celebrations attract many visitors who like our low-keyed style of celebrating. Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is a unique opportunity to learn about Coastal Alabama.

Whether you are looking for golfing, art, walking, biking, tennis, boating, fishing, crabbing, shopping, discovering coastal South Alabama or just plain relaxing, all are available for you to enjoy year round at Surprise Landing Cottage.

WONDERFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Surprise Landing cottage and the property that it is on are truly beautiful! The owners, Deborah and Frank, have supplied everything you need to have a restful, peaceful holiday. The cottage itself is outfitted in the most attractive way, and the high ceilings and tall French doors give it an added feeling of spaciousness, opening to the scenic outdoors. Their private pier was available for our use, and we were allowed to have family that we were visiting to spend time with us there. We will be very disappointed if we couldn't stay at this great place during our next visit to the lovely Fairhope area! Thank you, again, Deborah and Frank, for all that you do to make your guests feel so comfortable! Surprise Landing is really a very special treasure!

A SURPRISE INDEED

  • 5 of 5
What a great find this was! The grounds on this property are beautiful with wonderful huge trees. You'll know you made the right choice when you start down the driveway. The cottage is small but extremely well done. We caught cold, rainy weather during our short winter stay but didn't mind because the cottage was so comfortable. Access to their nice pier is also a plus.

COZY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Our week long stay at Surprise Landing was delightful. Days were busy visiting family and friends and it was wonderful to come back to the relaxing environment of the cottage. Walks along the bay were enjoyable. The cottage is well equipped, well maintained and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the privilege of using the pier. Watching the birds and sunsets across the bay was a treat! Frank and Deborah are gracious hosts.

PERFECT FOR A RELAXING LONG WEEKEND !!

  • 5 of 5
The Surprise Landing Guest Cottage is a perfect jewel, and the local owners were outstanding hosts. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone enjoying golf, biking, jogging, kayaking, or a lazy day at the beach. Just enjoying sunsets on the wharf while watching the dophins play is worth the trip!!
