Driving west from Gulf Shores along Fort Morgan Road brings you by scenic Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, a haven for nature lovers.

Wonderful Stay at the Rookery!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful time at the cottage. We had plenty of room. It's a large cottage,

very comfortable and the beds were so comfortable too. Everything you need! However we did not use the front porch because of the bugs. Bring bug spray! We spent most of our time at the beach. It was a short drive. We walked once but decided to drive the next time. Several families were using golf carts to drive to the beach. You can rent one over by Sassy Bass but they are pricey to rent. Overall we had a wonderful time. We all hated to leave! Thank you Jenny for great communication!

Best place for a family to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very very clean and quiet! Close to pool but feels secluded and private. Our sons loved the room with pull out and tv they had their own little area! Kitchen had every tool, pan, pot, utensil etc to cook all your meals. Spoke with other families there and must say Jenny the owner really took visiting families into consideration. From the clothes line on the porch to the pool toys in box outside everything you need is there. She has a book with beach directions, local places to see, and good to know information. My older parents stayed with us and it was perfect for them also. Only suggestion would be more seating on porch. We loved sitting out there!

Wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Oh how we enjoyed our stay at this condo! Not only was every exchange and encounter easy, but this condo has everything one would need. We ate out very few times, due to being able to utilize all of the amenities in the kitchen. Our group was able to enjoy several sunrises on the beach VERY nearby. As a larger group, we certainly enjoyed our stay and would return to this area and this condo. We made full use of the washer/dryer, wifi, and all kitchen accessories. Might I also add that the décor was beautiful. Lots of fun photos and paintings!!!

A wonderful, quiet, clean place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage! We stayed 7/6/14-7/13/14. The owner was so easy to deal with from the booking thru check out. It was such a nice, very clean, secluded place. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need. The internet was alittle slow but, really, WHO CARES!!!! :) We most definitely will stay in this cottage again when we get back to Gulf Shores!

Peaceful- Great Customer Service- Clean

  • 5 of 5

My family has vacationed at this cottage quite a few times. Before, during, and after our stays, we have always had excellent customer service and communication with the owner! Southern hospitality! The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and the area is family friendly. Amongst all that we love about our stays here, something else that is special to us-- the genuine friendliness of the people in the area! Looking forward to our next stay!

Loved The Cottage!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked this cottage in hopes of a wonderful, relaxing vacation - and we were right!!! The owner has the kitchen full of everything you need to prepare & cook meals. We loved the outdoor shower, where we and the kids could rinse the sand off; loved the zero-entry pool for the baby; comfortable mattresses; and lots of space! We will definitely be back and would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to vacation in Gulf Shores! And, thank you Jenny for making the process so easy!

Notes:
The Rookery was designed to be a natural quiet resort and is located adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. There are several golf courses near by and this unit is only 15 miles from Gulf Shores Parkway, without any of the traffic and crowds. A marina, boat dock and restaurants are nearby. Alabama's Gulf Coast offers a wonderful variety of inshore and offshore saltwater fishing. Driving west from Gulf Shores along Fort Morgan Road brings you to the end of the peninsula, where Fort Morgan stands guard to the mouth of Mobile Bay along with its sister, Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island, a ferry-ride away. You can also visit the Estuary located on Dauphin Island, or the Gulf Coast Zoo in Gulf Shores. Waterville is a water park in Gulf Shores, while The Track offers amusement park rides & an arcade. At the Rookery you will also find nature trails, tennis courts, a barbecue area, as well as a bike path. A short drive to Foley offers the Tanger Outlet, a large outlet mall.
