Overview

Fort Morgan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Beach house on a quiet, secluded Beach in Fort Morgan area of Gulf Shores. No busy commercial congestion or large condominium complexes. Relax on the covered deck with excellent views of the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay or enjoy the swing and picnic table located under the unit. Spend the day just steps away on the uncrowded white, Sandy Beach. Find shells, watch for porpoises and swim in the clear blue waters of the Gulf. It's a short drive to several great Golf courses, or Shopping in Gulf Shores and the Foley (Tanger) Outlet centers. Dine at local favorites 'Lulu's' owned by Jimmy Buffett's sister Tachy Jacks less than a mile from the house, Papa Rocko's for pizza and many more. Close to the house is historic Fort Morgan, or take an easy hike in Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge.

A bargain hunting trip to Tanger is a wonderful family activity. Tanger Outlet Centers have something for everyone. Your family will discover everything from the latest brand name fashions and accessories to home décor, books, music CDs, toys, outdoor gear, and much, much more. After a day of outlet shopping, everyone will have fun comparing all of the great deals they found

At the west end of the Pleasure Island peninsula are the remains of Fort Morgan. One of the two forts that protected Mobile during the Battle of Mobile Bay, the Fort dates from 1812. A museum offers displays of Civil War artifacts, and tours reveal the history of the fort from the War of 1812 until its final closure by the Army in 1946. On the beach, visitors will find cannons gazing out to sea. After touring the fort, there are opportunities to stroll the white beaches, swim, fish or crab, shell hunt, and sunbathe. This spot is a favorite with birdwatchers, who have been known to make rare sightings of migratory birds. A marina, golf course, and lodging are all nearby. The first week in August the fort hosts its major annual event, the Civil War Living History Encampment.

Recreate among endangered species and migratory birds. Over 4,000 acres of beach dunes, scrub dunes, fresh water marsh, salt water marsh, and Maritime forest make up the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge just west of Gulf Shores. This coastal Refuge is part of the Central Gulf Ecosystem Unit and provides refuge for the endangered loggerhead sea turtle, the endangered American alligator, and the rare gopher tortoise. Part of the migration route of the monarch butterfly, the Refuge is also known for its more than 120 species of birds - making it a paradise for bird watchers. Along with birding, the refuge offers opportunities for hiking, swimming, photography, collecting sea shells, and boating. Fishermen enjoy both fresh and saltwater fishing.

Ride the auto ferry to Dauphin Island for a tour of the SeaLab and historic Fort Gaines.Birdwatching and sunbathing are two of the favorite activities on this island paradise. The Audubon Bird Sanctuary, at the east end of the island, extends over 164-acres of maritime forest, marshes, and dunes. A campground and hiking trail are part of the Sanctuary, giving visitors opportunities to spend time observing the neotropical migrant birds and native wildflowers.. In the spring, the park is visited by bird lovers anxious to view the annual bird migration.

So much to do!

Love the Beach

  • 5 of 5
It's my third summer coming to this home away from home. It has been the perfect getaway for me and my dog. Just a peaceful setting for anyone who needs to get away from the craziness. All you need is your swimsuit,clothes,toiletries and food and everything else is provided. The owners are always a phone call away if you ever need anything. They are wonderful people. Can't wait for my stay next year.

Great place for a great price!

I was so please with the accommodations at Maw-Maw's place. For the price, it was clean, cozy, and you can't beat how close to the beach it is! The location is great (restaurants close by but somewhat secluded so you have your privacy) and everything we needed was right there within reach. We used the blender to make frozen drinks, used the boogie board and sand toys... there was even a pack-n-play for my 2 year old to take naps! Great place and very friendly owners, I would highly recommend it for a getaway!!

Our vacation was wonderful. The owner was very accommodating when we had a couple of issues. Problems were fixed immediately. The house was a little farther from the beach than it looked from the picture, but that was no problem. The house was well-stocked with little necessities that one normally forgets to pack, which made living there much easier. Tacky Jack's restaurant was close by. I didn't care for their food, but the karaoke and beers were great. The best part of all was the dog friendly beach. My golden retriever had a super time.

We had a wonderful time while in Fort Morgan at our vrbo rental. It was so peacful. Although, we didn't get to enjoy the hangout but one evening this year due to the area being prepared for the big "concert" bash that was upcoming we still had a wonderful time that night. For a peacful relaxing time I recommend the Gulf Shores area and Fort Morgan all the way.

Ft Morgan Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
We go to Ft. Morgan just about every year and this was the first time that we rented from Cheryle. The house was cozy, nice and fully stocked. The first time EVER we've rented a house/condo that has everything you need. The best part to us was that they are pet friendly. We have two dogs and our lab absolutely loves the water. Being so close to the ocean, we were able to take her everyday and that was sooooooo nice. Much better than boarding them. Also, we had family decide to join us at the last minute which turned out to be wonderful!
