Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved it. We are hoping to stay with you again next year. My boys loved the kid's room. We were at the baseball fields for a good portion of the time-- it was disappointing not to be able to spend more time at the beach, cottage and pool! The decor of the cottage was so cute! I loved it!



Thank you!!

Lovely home! Very spacious. My children are 5 and 3 and they loved it. The pool is fantastic....really FANTASTIC!! While the beach is within walking distance....so is Chicago...LOL....If you're in great shape and wanting a work out!!!!! However, I suggest driving. It's a tiny drive. Literally one minute. We had a wonderful time and will be back for sure!!

Peggy was awesome to work with! This beach cottage was perfect for us. Loved the pool and not too far from beach. The wagon was a great help in loading things up for beach. Lots of little extras such as toys, Playstation, movies etc. We definitely will be booking again hopefully to make this or tradition :)

Home Away From Home

This has been a great trip for myself and my other family members. The cottage was everything it said it was! Everything was nice and clean and very home like. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and having the beach just a little drive across the street was awesome too! Definitely a place we all would like to visit again.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is better than the listing describes. Peggy has done an outstanding job! The location is quiet and secluded but only a few minutes from the Gulf Shores strip. There is a beach within walking distance or you can drive a few short miles in any direction to many more beaches. Ft. Morgan is a beautiful place to visit and this cottage is the best place to stay while visiting. We have seven children ages 1 to 16 and everyone of them loved the house and the area. From the gator to the dolphins, the beaches and the restaurants, Ft. Morgan and the Naval Air Museum, and best of all the great weather, we had a wonderful time. This rates as our best vacation yet!
Thanks Peggy!

This is everything you'd imagine for a quaint beach cottage. An end unit next to the Bon Secour preserve with nice screened in porch for sitting at night, listening to the sounds of owls and frogs in the wetlands. Although there are signs prohibiting access to the wetlands from the property, it's still a peaceful surrounding to relax in. The exterior photo doesn't do justice to the look of the cottage. The bedrooms are a good size with amenities perfect for young children. The kids room has a bunk bed, playstation, games, and a small air hockey table. There are two rocking chairs inside the cottage for moms with smaller babies, with plenty of room in the second bedroom if you need to set up a playpen. The third bedroom has nice comfy king bed with good size private bathroom. I loved the decor - very creative & comfy. Not too "beachy" but not stuffy either. The area seems like a retirement community, which is nice if you're looking for a quiet well-kept place to stay without all the hustle and bustle, and everyone (even the teenagers) enjoyed the pool. You don't have a view of the beach, however it is a quick 2 minute drive to access. I loved the seeing the green baby tree frogs every night! Peggy, the owner, was extremely accomodating and an absolute pleasure to deal with - so sweet you will want to make a friend with her! I would refer this as a place for relaxing and enjoying family & friends without the cost and noise of staying closer to town. Teens may want to drive to town for excitement, but other than that, this place has everything a family could want in a get-away. Thanks again to Peggy and her husband for allowing us to stay in their Beach Cottage, we will definitely return again!

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND RENT THIS COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage as a last minute summer family vacation. We paid a very small price for a WONDERFUL experience. The layout of the cottage is IDEAL, with 3 generous sized bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There is a dining table in the common area that is just perfectly sized for families. We have two children (ages 7 & 13) who were able to each bring a friend this year. Everyone had a blast. We grilled out using the community grill (although the owner has one available at the cottage,) swam in the pool, took the kids down the road to see the actual fort, went to town to eat and for fun at The Track, and of course went to the beach. Because of the beach being across the street we decided to rent a golf cart from a local company. It isn't necessary, you could walk or drive the short distance.
The owners could not have been more accommodating! They were easy to work with, responded quickly to any question I had in preparation for our trip and were genuinely interested in our stay.
