Wonderful: beauty quiet comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Such a special property. At the end of dead end lane. Quiet so you can listen to birds and enjoy the peace. Pretty with trees, water, dock. Just the right space for 3 couples (1 double bed was fine) with 3 bathrooms.

Excellent

The cottage was comfortable and exceeded our expectations. Everything was provided as advertised. We enjoyed the quiet location, the pier, porches, space, and amenities provided with the cottage. Great experience!

The home was beautiful, quiet surroundings and the ping pong table was a great treat for the teens!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't like the normal beach seen and want to try something a bit different, this is it! Sitting on the screened in porch, relaxing as boats, jet skis, kayaks travel up and down the Fowl River was awesome! Loved the proximity to Dauphin Island and Mobile. If you want to get away, this is your vacation home.

Sweet Serenity

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Thanksgiving Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Place to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

Other Activities: Birding, Kayaking, Relaxing!
