Boarding the Fort Morgan National Wildlife Preserve, the Little House by the Bay is a perfect place to go and write a book, or just get away and let the world go by. Located on 2 acres, with 150 feet of water front on beautiful and historic Mobile Bay, this is a great place to watch the boats go by on the intercoastal, fish, crab or enjoy the nearby white sandy beaches. The location is secluded and very private, although high levels of activities are just a few minutes away.
A short drive just across highway 180 and you are on the beautiful white sandy public beaches adjacent to the National Wildlife Preserve. Enjoy the blue water and surf during the day and in just a few minutes, you are back at the Little House by the Bay.
The property includes a 130 foot pier to fish, crab and sunbath from. If you are a boater, you can moor your boat 150' off shore at mooring posts and wade in waste deep. By boat, you are justa 20 minute boat ride from Lulu Buffet's Bar and Grill and all the sites of Gulf Shores. Futher to the East on the intercoastal, and you are at Orange Beach and Perdido Pass.
A 16 mile boat ride to the West will put you at Fort Morgan and the Mouth of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A bit further West and you are at Dauphin Island. Some of the best in-shore and off-shore fishing and crabbing are right at your finger tips.

The North Shore of the Fort Morgan Penisula has breath taking views of Bon Secour and Mobile Bays with beautiful sunsets and wildlife. The historic area is secluded, private and peaceful. The large 2 acre lot borders the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and is just 10 minutes from Gulf Shores.
The screened in porch, large patio and fishing pier feature spectacular views. The 150 shoreline offers great fishing and crabbing opportunities for the sportsman.
We enjoyed our time at the little house on the bay. Ospreys in the trees every day, quite, relaxing - everything you want was there. Very close to white sandy beaches.
We rented this house and had a very small wedding for my daughter in the yard by the water. It was so beautiful! I absolutely loved being on the water. The house is so pretty and charming. I loved all the windows. You can't go wrong if you rent this!
We enjoyed the location of Little House on the Bay. It's very private and tucked away from the main road with a lovely view of the bay. Loved hearing the church bells ringing the hours and watching the pelicans and herons, and Lola our Jack Russell Terrier thoroughly enjoyed the large property. The house itself is charming with a nice open concept floor plan and great views of the water. And the bed was so comfortable! Thank you for a wonderful stay in Fort Morgan.
An absolutely awesome stay at Little House in our first “snowbird” trip away from NE Ohio! We stayed most of January 2015 with our dogs, who would certainly award 5 Stars for yard, walking, and generally playing (frisbee, chasing balls, etc.). We don’t fish, but sure enjoyed seeing tons of pelicans and herons on the dock and occasionally in the yard! The house, amenities, and its location were great, and we enjoyed exploring the area. We sure hope we will be fortunate enough to return at some point… Thanks for making such a great place available!
My wife and I and our chocolate lab Molly had a great time at Little House on the Bay. It was the perfect site for a very quiet get away. The inside of the house has been remodeled and was beautiful. There was plenty of outdoor space for Molly to run and have fun. Everything we needed was right there. The re-built pier and dock was perfect for fishing, boating or swimming. The house is small but perfect for small families or couples looking for a quiet time away together.
The house was exactly like it shows, private pier, bay side, not too much sand to track in the house, gulf side beach was beautiful and less crowded than at gulf shores. Weather was perfect, food was great, lots of places to choose from. We would love to come back again.
Adjacent to Bon Secour National Wildlife Reserve, just a few minutes or short bike ride to Gulf Beaches!
