About Glenn & Rene

We fell in love with the Fort Morgan area during a visit many years ago. We've celebrated family time in the area every year since. We love visiting in the peak of summer, during the fall season, as a family for Thanksgiving or Christmas and during the fresh days of spring. In 2010, we took the plunge and bought Recovery Room West. Then in 2016, Recovery Room East. We hope you enjoy our little piece of beach paradise as much as we do!

Glenn & Rene purchased this house in 2010

Why Glenn & Rene chose Fort Morgan

Fort Morgan is a wonderful family beach area. Our home has been decorated with love and with families in mind.

What makes this house unique

Directly on the beach - what more need I say?

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Everything was as described and we felt totally at home in this beautiful home. This property was very clean, beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for 10 of us. In fact, there was adequate room for at least 4 more. It was peaceful and serene without the hubbub and noise of Gulf Shores. We enjoyed leisurely walks on the quiet beach from early morning until late at night. Larry, the manager, was ever so gracious and Johnny-On-the-spot when we needed anything. He was a true gentleman and genuinely wanted to ensure that we had everything we needed. Anytime we needed him, he would head our direction and asked if we needed him to pick up anything for us on the way. He was always a phone call or text away. While we loved this property and will definitely be staying here again, we would also stay here just to see Larry again! Thank you for a lovely time, a beautIful home, and true hospitality.

Great place for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, attractive, and spacious. Beds were very comfortable and there was little noise from one bedroom to the others. Kitchen was well equipped, but amenities such as salt and pepper would have been nice. Toilet paper supply was inadequate for the 13 people who stayed in the house for 4 nights. The beach and pool were wonderful, although very cold weather prevented us from taking full advantage of them. Property manager responded quickly to a small repair that needed to be made. We all enjoyed the property very much.

Nice, quiet, well-stocked beach house right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had the misfortune of beginning our vacation in conjunction with Hurricane Nate (Cat 1), which arrived near Ft. Morgan on Saturday, Oct 7, 2017 and left Sunday morning. For our safety, we remained inland (in Clanton, AL) on Saturday night. We began driving toward Ft. Morgan on Sunday am, and booked a hotel in Gulf Shores for Sunday night. Larry (property manager) had been in close contact with us during the whole situation, and keeping us well informed. We decided to drive to the vacation house at Ft. Morgan on Sunday afternoon, and much to our surprise, it was ready for us to safely enter, with A/C, wifi, and toilets all working. There was some debris (crabs, sand, dirt) in the pool, and some boards on the boardwalk were missing. We were able to cancel our hotel reservation, and check in to the house. We had two sets of grandparents (us, and our daughter-in-law's parents), our son and his wife and two children (ages 15 and 11), our daughter and her son (age 4), with a total of 10 people. The house had plenty of room for us all. The kitchen was well stocked with accessories. Larry was there on Sunday, and a few other days. The pool man came on Monday and got the pool in swimming order by Monday afternoon. The beach had quite a bit of debris (understandable for a hurricane) and waves were big (and dangerous) on Sunday, but calmed down fairly quickly and by Tuesday was nice. There were other people around, so you don't feel isolated, but there are no big crowds like you get at condos on the beach. It is very family oriented, and quiet, and peaceful. There are a couple of restaurants close by (Tacky Jacks, west of the house about 3 miles) and Sassy Bass (east of the house about 3 miles).....and another one about 5-6 miles east. However, we mostly shopped at Rouse's (local market, VERY nice) in Gulf Shores (about 15-20 minutes drive) or Publix (about 20-25 minute drive) and cooked. (Our folks like to remain on the beach as long as possible, so it is like herding cats to get folks cleaned up to make a drive into town to eat at a restaurant.) So, some meal planning is a good idea. We did not make it to tour Ft. Morgan (veterans get in free; seniors are discounted; young children are free, I think), but would have liked to see it close up. Bellingrath Gardens is nearby (Ferry ride to Mobile)....and would be nice to see. While furnishing could use a little update, all in all, we were very pleased with this house....Larry gets A+!

Struck Visit to Gulf Shores Fort Morgan - 3178 Ponce de Leon

  • 5 of 5

Overall we felt our expectations were realized. House in good shape overall.

We had many questions in beginning before travel to destination and Larry Gordon

was exceptional to work with and always responded to our inquiries VERY QUICKLY

and always helped answer our questions and possible concerns. The Home was perfect for our needs. The Pool and the great weather (lucky after Harvey) were the highlights for us. Also timing was lucky in that not that many people on beach this time of year. Larry was evan willing and able to meet us a couple of months prior to stay and let us take a peek at the home and surroundings, very much appreciated.

Great beachfront property for a big group!

  • 5 of 5


- lots of space to spreadout for 14+ people in beds and additional on sleeper couches

- very responsive owners and property manager

- location, location, location: quiet and beautiful neighborhood and beach

- onsite pool shared only with next door duplex neighbor

- flexibility of layout for adults, children and large groups


- Hard to find any significant flaws that would be a barrier, we would definitely book again.

- Some minor recommendations: Some more regular maintenance like painting, deck repair, and clean out of stuff people "leave behind" would help this place really "shine". Have rented many times in Vrbo and this place is definitely above average so this is just a minor suggestion to make it 5+ stars

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate your comments and compliments. We try extremely hard to provide a place that people enjoy and want to visit again. We will be addressing those "minor" issues you mentioned during the office season. Thanks again for vacationing with us and looking forward to have you stay with us again. Glenn and Rene
