About The Owner
We grew up near the beach and always dreamed of owning a house on the beach. We were thrilled when we found Fort Morgan, only 2 hours away from home (at the time). We purchased three lots and built our beach house 'On Dune Pond' the first year. We built 'Conch'ed Out' next and have been renting it out ever since. We have snowbirds that use it all winter and we enjoy repeat visits from many of our summer guests. Our daughter was nine years old when we first starting coming here, and she has grown to love it and share it with others through her photographs. We know your vacation here will be one you will always cherish! Chris & Sue Willoughby

Why The Owner chose Fort Morgan
Fort Morgan is the ideal vacation spot; close to many major cities but it feels very far away.
The beach is never crowded - we spent our first summer on the sand waiting for the crowds to show up...they never did! Shelling, swimming, walking, reading, napping - it's all right here.
What makes this house unique
Fort Morgan is rich in history, nature and man-made attractions. The fort was made famous during the Civil War battle for Mobile Bay. Union Admiral Farragut sent his ships past the fort and into a torpedo field. His famous cry of 'damn the torpedos, full speed ahead' saved the Union ships and launched an attack on Fort Morgan. Confederate Admiral Buchanan surrendered the fort after a three week battle. We are surrounded by beautiful Gulf Island National Seashore, and one of our favorite hikes is to Shell Beach. It's an easy, flat hike and at the end you are rewarded with a gorgeous stretch of beach covered with shells - don't miss it. The young and young at heart will love a morning trip to the zoo in Gulf Shores, made famous by Animal Planet's show 'The Little Zoo That Could'. It is a short 20 mile drive from our house. Fishing is easy - at the shore or 1/4 mile away to catch a charter boat for a day in the Bay or the gulf.
