Why The Owner chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Our family has been taking vacations to Fort morgan since 2005. We enjoy visiting the area so much, that we decided to purchase a home.

What makes this cottage unique

Fort Morgan is off the beat in path. It is peaceful and quiet. If you are looking to get away from traffic as well as the hustle and bustle of city life, then Fort morgan is the place for you.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time last week visiting Fort Morgan. The property was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed inside. As many other reviewers have said the pictures do not do it justice. There was plenty of space for my parents, two young children, my husband and me. We will hope to travel back here in the future! Thank you!

House is decorated beautifully and had everything we needed for our stay. Lovely area! You have to drive to beach but found a place to park close to our beach spot.

Lovely vacation home. Beautifully decorated. Super close to sugar-sand beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation get-away! Home is spacious, well laid out and beautifully decorated. Beds are comfortable. Kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, utensils, dishes and all appliances (including toaster, blender and mixer). Having a washer and dryer in the home is an added bonus. Everything is clean and well maintained. Property owner was easy to reach. Upon checkout and inspection, our damage deposit was fully refunded.

Home is close to swimming pool, charcoal grills and tennis court.

Beach is within walking distance- a 10 to 15 minute stroll. If you drive, like we did, it's about a 2 or 3 minute drive. There is plenty of parking available at the beach. Beach is clean with sugar white sand and blue-green water. Beach is in an area of homes and camps- NO high rise condos. It has an awesome vintage-beach vibe!

Home is very close to Fort Morgan. Be sure to check it out. There are a couple of restaurants, delis, convenience stores and a gas station nearby. Area is not overdeveloped with big box stores, chain restaurants and mega-sized service stations.

Home is about a 20 minute drive to Rouses, Wal-Mart and souvenir shops in Gulf Shores. There are plenty of dining, shopping and fuel options on Hwy.59.

In closing, we had a great time. Only wish we could've stayed longer!!!

Beautiful property, well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! We returned for the 2nd year and were not disappointed! Beautiful home that is well taken care of and ideal for a family stay! Amanda was great to work with. We are already looking at next year! Community has a pool and hot tub and within walking distance to the beach. Fort morgan doesnt have all the "touristy" things as gulf shores and is quiet and family orientated. We had a wonderful time!

Thank you!

Very clean and neat and well maintained and had excellent response from the owner

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the Rookery. Met lots of nice people there including Ernie next door who gave us lots of pointers on where to eat (Tacky Jacks and Sassy Bass were really close) and had very good food. The only downside were the no-seem's that came out when it got hot. We didn't realize it until we were bit, then we got spray to protect us. They were not on the beach or open areas, just where there was a lot of brushy areas. Beaches were beautiful, we also went to the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola and several of the Mardi Gras parades which were so much fun. We would recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax! Actually liked it better than Florida.
