We like to say: RETIRED POSTAL GONE COASTAL
We purchased the cottage new and lived in it from 2005 until 2008 when we moved to another cottage within walking distance. This is our only rental property and we take care of it ourselves, no management company. We also do the cleanings unless we are back in Southern Indiana visiting the grand kids.
The Rookery community is quiet and family oriented. No high rises here. Parking is right in front of the cottage. The view from the porch is the Bon Secour Wildlife Preserve. There is no place like it for a quiet get away or family vacation.
