TIRED OF THE SNOW, THE BEACH AWAITS YOU! SPRING DATES AVAILABLE!

Fort Morgan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our cozy Coastal Cottage. Step back in time to a place where you can relax on the screened porch, swim in the fabulous pool, hop across the street to the most beautiful white sandy beaches on the Gulf Coast and the fishing is incredible.

The outdoor jacuzzi, Tiki hut and bar-b-que area offer you a place to enjoy the outdoors. This is a haven for the lovers of nature since you would be located next to The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and down the road from Historic Fort Morgan and The Ferry to Dauphin Island and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

Enter through the screened in porch to a large living, dining and kitchen area with room for everyone. There are three nice size bedrooms with a queen, double, sleeper sofa and two sets of bunk beds. There are 2 full baths with a full size washer and dryer.

The perfect place to enjoy all the wonders of the Gulf and the surrounding areas.

Keywords: Unique Cottage, with screened in porch, large open space, endless pool, national wildlife refuge

Our family of four resides in Helena, AL

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

The Alabama Coast has a special place in my heart. I'm very blessed to share a part of my childhood with my husband & children. The Rookery gives us a place to visit that is away from the high rise condos; away from the crowds. A place where we can get back in touch with nature and step back into time. Our porch is a great place for family dinners, relaxation, playing board games & enjoying each other's company.

We love The Rookery because it's close enough to shopping, dining & entertainment, but far enough away from crowded beaches. We love the proximity to Mobile Bay, which is ideal for watching the sun set & fishing. Walking nature trails, riding bikes, swimming and special family time will offer you a vacation to remember.

We had a great time. House was beautiful, beds were comfortable and pool was fabulous. Would reccomend this place. My kids loved the pool which was right cross the street. Getting to the beach was easy, not a lot of hassel. Kay was wonderful to work with. We hope to go back sometime soon.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

Great place to stay! Loved being away from the traffic and busy strip! Place was very nice! We recommend staying here. Close enough to the beach and very nice pool right behind this unit. Right down the road is a small grocery store and Sassy Bass restaurant. Sassy Bass was really good. We also recommend the Compleat Angler at The Wharf (owned by Bob Baumhower).

Very Nice and Clean

First of all, Kay was wonderful to work with. I communicated with her a couple of times before coming to Alabama because it was our families first time coming here and she was very helpful. We arrived after dark, and had no trouble finding the house or getting into it. I really liked that you did not have to drive to a management office to get the keys and then go find the house like many rental places. After traveling for 13 plus hours, we just want to get into the house and you can with this home. They have a code to open a box to get your key.

The house was just like the pictures show and we found it very clean upon arriving which is really important to me. Our family really enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores. We were able to relax at the pool while our kids swam because it was not crowded and we could see them at all times. We spent much of our time across the road at the beach. Same thing at the beach, it was not crowded so we could pick our spot and not worry about the kids. We could see them and they had room to run and play without getting in other peoples way. You can walk to the beach, but when we were going for the day we loaded the vehicle with all our things and drove. It was such a nice relaxing week.

The nice thing about this location is that it is easy to travel into Gulf Shores to the restaurants and attractions yet you are away from it all if you want to be. It took approximately 15 minutes driving on one road to get into the main area of Gulf Shores. There are also some restaurants closer to the Rookery if you would rather stay close. We ate many of our meals at the house due to the fact they provide a grill. We did eat out 3 evenings. The two we enjoyed most were Docs Seafood and Lulu's. Lulu's had live music playing, kids could play in the sand and water spout/bucket area, parents could get a drink all while waiting to get your table.

We felt very safe. I (woman) ran 2 days by myself and wasn't worried to do so. Every morning, we saw many runners and bikers. If you enjoy the outdoors, you are really close to walking trails that are just beautiful and part of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. We hiked with our 3 children two mornings while we were there.

We really enjoyed our stay and plan to come back! Thank you for letting us use your home and for all the extras like the beach chairs that you provide:)

The house lived up to our expectations. We loved it there. The house was more like a hotel, they even left you little shampoo bottles and soap. Very professional, very warm and inviting. We don't want to leave so we will be coming back soon. Thank you so much for letting us stay.
