About the property

2 BR with loft, 1 bath Beach Front Cottage, sleeps 9 and is pet friendly

Fine Fish House - this BEACH FRONT cottage is located about 12 miles from Gulf Shores and next door to the Bon Secour National Wildlife refuge. One of the most private homes you can find in this area. The cottage has a master bedroom with a Queen size bed and a second bedroom with two full size beds. There is also a loft that has one twin bed and a fold-out sofa sleeper that sleeps two people.

Close to historic Fort Morgan so you can take the ferry to Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines; great fishing in the Gulf of Mexico with a full service marina just a few miles away.

Amenities: Welcome - just bring your bathing suit and toothbrush! All sheets, towels, pillows are provided and the kitchen is ready for cooking. There is a full sized washer and dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave and electric stove. The large deck on the front of the cottage is perfect for enjoying the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets! We also have a wireless internet, cable television with approximately 45 channels (and growing) and a stereo with cassette and CD capabilities. Close to the Tanger Centre (outlet shopping), numerous approved golf courses, and transportation to the casinos of Mississippi and Louisiana.

Just past Mile Marker 10, Fort Morgan Road (U.S. Highway 180 West), (Gulf Shores), Alabama, approximately twelve miles outside of Gulf Shores, Alabama.

We are strategically located along the flight path for practice runs made by the Blue Angels of the Pensacola Naval Air Station and other aircraft. Historic Fort Morgan is only ten miles due west along the scenic peninsula highway. The trip to Fort Morgan is a must to be able to walk its haunting corridors, walls, and perimeter where Admiral Farragut proclaimed: 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.' The museum and its artifacts are a chilling reminder of our heritage and history along the Gulf Coast.

Gulf Shores is located approximately twelve miles due east on a scenic ride through the miles long brackish water lagoon behind the Gulf Coast as it becomes the 'Diamond Coast,' including the beaches of Gulf Shores, Romar, Orange Beach, Ono Island and on into the Panhandle of Florida.

You can enjoy the unparalleled serenity of being on the beach and yet be within minutes of the substantial amenities that have come to pass in the Gulf Shores and the Panhandle. Golf courses abound, water sports thrive, fishing is world class (with charter boats readily available from local captains), and amusement and theme parks of a substantial nature are all available.

2 BR/1 bath, pets friendly.

This cottage is located on a private road with a wide expanse of beach. No overcrowded beaches. This year there were over 90 sea turtle nests along the Fort Morgan beaches. Some nests hatched during the day which was a wonderful surprise for our guests.

Good location 1/2 way between Gulf Shores and Ft. Morgan

  • 5 of 5

Good beach house located 1/2 way between Gulf Shores and Ft. Morgan. Quiet beach with wide sand beach but close to food and activities. Great for a couple or a family wanting to get away. Comfortably furnished and well equipped for our stay. Would recommend for visiting the area and getting some peace and quiet.
