This quaint cottage is a vestige of a bygone era when life along the Gulf coast was serene and off the beaten track. It is tucked in a wildlife and bird sanctuary half way between the modern conveniences and resort beaches of Gulf Shores and Historic Fort Morgan set well back from a meandering two lane road. The large screened in back porch overlooks an open grove of ante-bellum oak trees, beyond which is a wetland area and the water of Bon Secour Bay. The only distractions from tranquility are the breezes in the trees, the chorus of songbirds, and occasional brief visit by curious neighboring resident dogs. The furnishings, appliances, and fixtures are more than adequate for a comfortable, enjoyable peaceful stay. There is good cell connection although the DSL connection does bog down at times. The owner was very appreciative of any efforts to help her improve our experience and both she and her husband visited during our two-week stay to deliver some minor maintenance items for the house. Fresh seafood and groceries are readily available for home cooking or there are plenty of good restaurants in both directions from the house.
