Investigating Area

  • 5 of 5

I found the property nicely furnished and very clean. Bedding was of a good quality and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped for any type of cooking desired. While the neighbor properties were close you would never know it by the way the property is situated on the lot. Several rainy days but lots to see and do the historical Fort Morgan close by as well as access to Mobile via the car ferry at end of the peninsula. I highly recommend this property and this area for a great vacation getaway.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the reservations to checkout everything was perfect! The cottage was exactly what we wanted and definitely exceeded our expectations. (The only thing we would suggest is to provide more bath towels, as our crew of 5 did not have enough, and we had to wash them daily).

Other than that, the cottage was in wonderful shape, away from the busy city and access to the beach was sufficient. The pools on site were clean and well maintained, which was a plus. Could not locate the hot tub/jacuzzi that was listed under amenities, but it wasn't missed as we stayed busy with all the local attractions and activities.

We will definitely make plans to visit again and wished our stay could have been longer!

See you again next vacation!

Peaceful retreat near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Ft. Morgan, and we loved our time at The Rookery! The cottage was just as described and pictured, and impeccably clean. The kitchen had all the utensils that we needed to cook most of our meals. The living room and bedrooms were spacious. The beds were comfy. The laundry facilities were a nice bonus, especially for a longer stay. The community pool was clean, and we were the only ones there every time we went to the pool. This cottage is not directly on the beach; however, we learned that in Ft. Morgan, there is public beach access at the end of the streets. So, there is access about 0.5 a mile away at the end of Cortez St. The public beach area isn't large, as there are private homes nearby; however, the beach was not crowded at all, and this was never an issue. There is also beach access in Bon Secour Wildlife refuge, but we had so much fun where we were that we never tried that one out. We came prepared with the paper products and most of the groceries we'd need for the week, as we didn't want to make frequent trips to Gulf Shores. Sassy Bass is a mile down the road, and has some of the essentials; although, there is an added cost for the convenience. We did go to Gulf Shores once for groceries, and it was really hectic! We were so glad that we were staying in peaceful Ft. Morgan. So, if you want a quiet getaway in a family friendly area in a lovely cottage with a pool and the beach nearby, this is the place for you.

Lovely Interior

  • 5 of 5

This 'Coastal Living' interior was lovely! It was the reason we selected this beach house and it did not disappoint. It was perfect for our stay and served our needs well and we looked forward to returning to spend the evenings and nights in it. The only disappointing part of the Rookery III stay was that the pool was not clean and that we had to drive so far to a public beach.

The Rookery III Fort Morgan Alabama

  • 5 of 5

The cottage we stayed in was beautiful and just as advertized. We are planning to return again next year. The management firm was wonderful to work with. We had a small problem when lightning hit the cottage during a severe storm. Our TV and WiFi were knocked out . I called the office and they sent a man out to repair everything right away. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. We meet some great people from the Rookery who recommended places to go and see and great places to eat. The locals were all very nice and we enjoyed the whole experience. The cottage was comfortable and cozy and decorated beautifully . We were sad to leave after our months reservation was up.
