We are so thrilled to have a vacation home in Ft. Morgan since Miriam grew up in Mississippi and spent many summers on the Gulf Coast as a child. While we were stationed at Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi and England Air Force Base in Louisiana,we vacationed on the Gulf Coast many times and experienced a number of other areas. We believe Ft. Morgan is especially inviting with its laid back, family friendly feel and charm.

Miriam/Owner purchased this house in 2009

While visiting family in Fort Morgan,we fell in love with the area. Ft. Morgan is truly a unique beach destination with its colorful palette of eclectic beach homes positioned near the water. Some have described it as the 'last beach frontier' with its lack of commercialism, yet close proximity to shops, golf courses and restaurants. Its relaxed ambiance, lazy streets, and family friendly environment are reminiscent of simpler times. It is not unusual to see locals as well as visitors enjoying leisurely bike rides while watching wildlife or beach activities. Ft. Morgan is a charming,friendly community with a small town feel.

Our home provides a comfortable setting for family gatherings with its large rooms, ample storage and close proximity to the beach. Its fully equipped kitchen will meet your needs to prepare sumptuous meals using local fresh seafood found at nearby markets. But if you'd prefer to dine out, there are many excellent restaurants that you can experience listed for your convenience in our welcome book along with activities of interest and attractions in the area. This is our family's vacation home so we make every effort to maintain it in the best way possible to ensure it will be comfortable for us as well as our guests. We enjoy sharing it with others and doing what we can to help our guests have the best experience possible!

Absolutely loved Mim's Whim!!! The house was spotless and comfortable. Everything you could possible need for a great get away was available at the house including beach toys, umbrella, and chairs. The view from the front porch each morning was fantastic. We can't wait to come back and stay again! If you are looking for a great place to stay this is it!

We spent Jan & Feb at Mim's Whim and found it to be exactly as described. The house was comfortably furnished and the kitchen well stocked. The beach was not crowded and just a short walk across the street. The owners were great to deal with when problems arose. Would definately recommend this property.

Perfect vacation at Mim's Whim. The porch is ideal...esp. if you have children. Good view of the beach and to listen to the waves. Beds are super comfortable! Recommend shopping at Wal-Mart and Publix and cooking in. Kitchen is stocked with pots, pans and dishes. Highly recommend!

My family had a wonderful time staying at Mim's Whim. The owners are awesome and very attentive to our needs. The home is beautiful and had everything you could possible need for the week except for food. Probably the nicest home in the area. Hopefully we will return next year.
