This cozy nautical cottage is located on a large, secluded, wooded lot about halfway down the Ft Morgan peninsula. The shady moss covered oaks in the back yard give way to a lovely view of Mobile Bay . Relax on the large screened porch or take a short walk down to the Bay. In addition, the cottage is located only two miles from the Mobile Street access to the Gulf of Mexico where there is free parking and a boardwalk over the dunes to soft white sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming, fishing, walking or shelling. Neat, clean, attractively decorated, and recently renovated! Fishermen will love having room to park their boat and the short distance to public launching. Charter fishing close by.
Golfer's Paradise: Who could ask for more than a beach house and top of the line golf courses! The Peninsula Golf Club is located just four miles East. It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just an 15 minute drive away. Want more? Play Kiva Dunes or the Golf Club of the Wharf; both are just five miles away.
Fishermen welcome: For avid fishermen who want to bring their boat to the beach but avoid the high cost of properties with piers and docks, this cottage is perfect. The large yard has room for parking a boat and a public launch is just minutes away. The Shell Banks Reef is just out in front of the property for great bay fishing. For those wanting to fish the Gulf of Mexico, a launch a little further down makes getting into the gulf a short and easy trip.
Don't have a boat? Charter fishing services are close by. What could be easier!

A native of Mobile, Alabama I grew up on two shores spending many days as a child on Pleasure Island and then traveling back and forth on summer days and weekends as a teen and young adult to bask in the sun on the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores.
In 1990 I bought my home on Little Lagoon in Gulf Shores where I raised my family while teaching high school in the area.
Now, after retiring from nearly 30 years in education I enjoy inviting others to share the pleasures of the island and the Ft. Morgan peninsula. This house is one of several I rent to guests from around the world. Some I own and some belong to friends and neighbors.
I have made many friends and always enjoy making new ones. It is my pleasure to see others enjoy a relaxing vacation in a home that is just right for them.
