Overview

Fort Morgan House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Beach access

Beach house on a quiet, secluded beach in fort Morgan area of gulf shores. No busy commercial congestion or large condominium complexes. Relax on the covered deck with excellent views of the gulf of Mexico and mobile bay . Spend the day just steps away on the uncrowded white, sandy beach. Find shells, watch for porpoises and swim in the clear blue waters of the gulf. It's a short drive to several great golf courses, or shopping in gulf shores and the foley (tanger) outlet centers. Dine at local favorites 'lulu's' owned by jimmy buffett's sister, tachy jacks less than a mile from the house, papa rocko's for pizza and many more. Close to the house is historic fort morgan, or take an easy hike in bon secour national wildlife refuge.

A bargain hunting trip to tanger is a wonderful family activity. Tanger outlet centers have something for everyone. After a day of outlet shopping, everyone will have fun comparing all of the great deals they found

At the west end of the pleasure island peninsula are the remains of fort Morgan. One of the two forts that protected mobile during the battle of mobile bay, the fort dates from 1812. After touring the fort, there are opportunities to stroll the white beaches, swim, fish or crab, shell hunt, and sunbathe. This spot is a favorite with birdwatchers, who have been known to make rare sightings of migratory birds. A marina, golf course, and extra lodging are all nearby.

Recreate among endangered species and migratory birds. Over 4,000 acres of beach dunes, scrub dunes, fresh water marsh, salt water marsh, and maritime forest make up the bon secour national wildlife refuge just west of gulf shores. This coastal refuge is part of the central gulf ecosystem unit part of the migration route of the monarch butterfly, the refuge is also known for its more than 120 species of birds - making it a paradise for bird watchers. Along with birding, the refuge offers opportunities for hiking, swimming, photography, collecting sea shells, and boating. Fishermen enjoy both fresh and saltwater fishing.

Ride the auto ferry to dauphin island for a tour of the sea lab and historic fort gaines.Birdwatching and sunbathing are two of the favorite activities on this island paradise. A campground and hiking trail are part of the sanctuary, giving visitors opportunities to spend time observing the neotropical migrant birds and native wildflowers.. In the spring, the park is visited by bird lovers anxious to view the annual bird migration.

So much to do!

Only 20 minutes from gulf shores, al

Snow birds Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our overall month stay was very nice. Lots of room in the house, internet connection & best of all, pet friendly. Our cat Snickers loved relaxing on the deck! A few steps & you were at the beach! Met some very nice, friendly neighbors there also. Loved The Sassy Bass(right up the road). Great weekend breakfast buffet. Great resturants in Gulf Shores area, too many to mention! Cheryle was great & very helpful with questions we had. Going forward, I would suggest some suggestions for us Snow Birds. I actually talked to Cheryle's husb and about one. Maybe a lift up the stairs, this idea came to me because one of the rentals across the street had one. Maybe, even something as simple as the higher, handicapped toilets. This is a great area for Sowbirds & think would really help with the renting in winter months!

Beautiful home and location close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Property was well kept, clean and well stocked with everything you would need for your vacation. Owner was prompt with responses to questions. I would not hesitate to book a vacation with this owner/home again! The home and area was pet friendly which was important to us. And we had a nice ocean view from the front porch at a reasonable price. Thanks Cheryle!

Great location and nice house

  • 5 of 5

Owner is very attentive and great communication about stay, before, during and after. We loved the layout of the house and very close to the beach. We enjoyed Behind the Pines restaurant, Oyster House and shopping at the outlet mall. Fort Morgan is very quiet and peaceful. Great place to relax and spend time with family. We have stayed at several different condos in the Fort Morgan/Gulf Shores area and this house rates at the top of the best bang for your buck!
