|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Getaway to the river in this beautiful home! Furnished for relaxation, come for a true getaway and enjoy listening to the birds, watching the boats go by, kayaking on the river, fishing on the dock, or just sitting on the screened porch with a good book. Cook delicious dinners in the gourmet kitchen, or purchase prepared and fresh seafood from our neighbors, Zirlott's Seafood.
Relax under the house in the 800 sf screened room with its picnic tables, ping pong table, and outside shower.
Mon Louis Landing: .
My husband and I ventured to the Mobile area for a conference. Instead of staying at the traditional convention hotel, we opted to rent this wonderfully comfortable home 25 minutes from the conference site. What a great decision! Mon Louis River Cottage is a peaceful oasis; yet close to interesting things to do if one is so inclined. Dauphin Island is beautiful...spend some time there. Julie has a comprehensive list of "Kenney Favorites" which is quite helpful. Peace and quite is what you get here. We hope to return when we can spend a week and further explore this beautiful area. Thanks, Julie!

Our family of 5 had a great time at the River Cottage. The house was very nice, private, and spacious with plenty to do. The sunsets were amazing on the back screen porch and the dock. The ping pong table was a huge hit with the kids (and dad). Everyone loved fishing off the dock. We caught croakers, red fish, trout, and my 8 year old daughter caught a large crab. I would highly recommend the River Cottage to anyone!
The house and property are beautiful. Secluded but also close to the beach and to Mobile. The screened porch overlooking the river is a great place to relax with a cup of coffee. A very short drive to the beach for sailing or fishing. The beds are comfortable and kitchen is outfitted with everything you would need.
Highly recommend Julie's house. House was nice quality and perfectly spotless with all the needed dishes, towels, blankets, etc. Screen porches are amazing! We've rented lots of houses through VRBO and Julie's definitely ranks with the nicest and with a great price. Close enough to Mobile and the beaches yet not right in the middle of all the hubbub. Super convenient to have Zirlott's yummy food right next door and a grocery store and several restaurants close by (Beaudeans was our favorite). Fun antique stores in Mobile. Booked a day of fishing with FinAtics who picked my husband up right at the dock at the house - can't get better than that. Great fishing right off the dock, too - caught 7 different species of fish. Thanks so much, Julie!
We had a great time at the River Cottage. The cottage is very well constructed and we love the modern decor. It's definitely very spacious and having a long dining table with additional bar stools was very thoughtful. It's a great spot for the entire family to dine together, socialize and just having fun playing board games when it's too dark to go outside. The kids and adults also play a lot of ping pong and yes it can be competitive at times. Fishing off the pier was also a big hit for the adults and kids. We caught red fish, trouts and croakers. We also went to Dauphin Island beach. It's a perfect spot for the kids to stretch and run around to release their energy. They had a great time playing in the sand while my wife and I pepper the volleyball.
There was enough homemade Thanksgiving food so we did not visit any nearby restaurants. Maybe next time. We did visit Chevron at Dauphin Island to pick up pizzas on two occasions though.
It was very professionally working with Julie. She was easy to get in touch with and always there to answer any questions. The River Cottage is truly a hidden gem in the Dauphin Island area. We plan to come back again next year.
My family of 5 had a great time here! This property looks just like the pictures listed. It had plenty of room for my kids to play and have their own space. My husband and kids loved fishing off the dock. My youngest son loved the ping pong table and board games. We grilled most nights instead of eating out, but there are plenty of places to go. This location is out away from the noise of others but close enough to get out and do planned activities, which we loved! The beach was just a short drive. Nice and clean...very impressed! We will be back!!

Located about 15 minutes from the beautiful white sandy beaches of Dauphin Island, this hideaway is on West Fowl River. Located just downriver from beautiful Bellingrath Gardens, it's a nature lover's paradise! Jump in a kayak and explore the river, or just cast a line from the dock. Located along the Alabama Coastal Birding trail, this cottage is a great spot to view all types of birds.
You're 30 minutes from Mobile and all the attractions there, and a short drive to Dauphin Island where you can visit historic Fort Gaines, the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, the Estuarium (sea lab and aquarium), and of course the beautiful white sandy beaches.
