Surprise Landing Cottage is in the quiet, secluded area south of Fairhope known as Battles Wharf.
We are located 1 mile north of Marriott's Grand Hotel and Lakewood's Robert Trent Jones Golf Course on Mobile Bay. Several other golf courses are nearby. We are a short drive to historic Mobile, the Battleship Alabama and the white sandy beaches of the Alabama Gulf coast.
The cottage is fully furnished and you would have use of our private pier on beautiful Mobile Bay. Come and enjoy our spectacular sunsets.
There is a walking/biking trail practically at the back door and Fairhope's charming little shops are a short drive or bike away. The area is known for its many seafood restaurants on the Causeway and other local favorites nearby. Tanger's Outlet Center in Foley is a short 30 minute drive for great bargains and The Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort offers a huge variety of shopping and dining. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail shopping are a ten minute drive.
Fairhope's Arts and Crafts Festival takes place every spring and there are always local artists working in Fairhope. Mobile's Mardi Gras and Fairhope's own Mardi Gras celebrations attract many visitors who like our low-keyed style of celebrating. Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is a unique opportunity to learn about Coastal Alabama.
Whether you are looking for golfing, art, walking, biking, tennis, boating, fishing, crabbing, shopping, discovering coastal South Alabama or just plain relaxing, all are available for you to enjoy year round at Surprise Landing Cottage.
My husband and I had a fantastic, relaxing stay with the Moores! The cottage is wonderfully comfortable. Our hosts did everything the could to make our stay enjoyable, starting with the homemade cheese straws and the welcoming bottle of wine on the night of our arrival. Their private pier is a beautiful place to sit and watch the sun set. We had planned to try to do a little fishing, but the time got away from us! We would highly recommend choosing Surprise Landing for your getaway in Mobile Bay. Can't wait to find a way to get back for another visit soon!
This is our second stay with Frank and Deborah. Surprise Landing is absolutely fantastic!!! My grand daughter calls it "fairyland" because of all the trees and ferns. From the moment you arrive till the moment you leave, you feel the quiet and beauty. The cottage has everything that you need to cook, have friends over or just sit and relax. Close to all of Fairhope - good restaurants and shops. 30 minutes max from Gulf. Excellently maintained.....can't wait to go back!!! Deborah and Frank are marvelous hosts beginning with a bottle of wine waiting for you on arrival! Does it get any better?!
What a wonderful relaxing time my husband and I enjoyed at your cottage! It was perfect for relaxing and exploring the area! I already fell in love with Fairhope area but wanted him to and he asked me to please book it again! It was extremely clean with very comfortable bed and I loved the decorating and relaxing atomosphere. Not to mention it was stocked with everything you could possibly need. The fresh cheese sticks and wine were so thoughtful of you and really enjoyed our stay and meeting Frank. I hope to meet Deborah when we return as I LOVE jewelry and would love to meet her- sorry I didn't get to this trip but good excuse to return! Would highly recommend this lovely place with wonderful people to visit. Thank you for sharing your home! Kathi and John Shawhan
We could not have enjoyed our stay more at Surprise Landing. We always use reviews when booking online. This sweet, charming cottage lives up to all the praise! We planned a last-minute get away and were so lucky to have run across Frank and Deborah's lovely property. We have rented many properties through the years. NO WHERE has been better planned, supplied or stocked to make your visit like a "home away from home"! They literally thought of everything! Thank You
We Loved our time at Surprise Landing Cottage and did not want to leave to go home! The scenery was gorgeous and location was convenient to downtown. The cottage and pier were well stocked with anything you could possibly need and Frank and Deborah made us feel so welcome and at home. Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your cottage and we really enjoyed the cheese sticks. Thank you for the hospitality and leaving the lights on for us when we came in late. We wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the pier. The cottage is in beautiful shape and a short drive to downtown Fairhope. When we are in Fairhope again we will definitely look to stay at your cottage again.
