About Leah Cosgrove

The Gulf shores of Alabama hold many dear memories for our entire family.

Leah Cosgrove purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Leah Cosgrove chose Alabama Gulf Coast

The Rookery is a step back in time. It is a place of peace and relaxation; family and fun. Awake to the sounds of birds chirping and fall asleep to the sounds of the Gulf waves. Far enough from the high rise condos and crowded beaches to create your own special moments yet close enough to Gulf Shores to enjoy all of the restaurants, shopping and entertainment of a big city. Step out the front door of this cottage into a sandy paradise surrounded by beaches and the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. The view from every window reminds you that you are somewhere special. Walk the beach or bird-watch along the many nearby nature trails. Play tennis, ride bikes, swim, cook-out and just enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

10 minute leisurely walk to the beachfront, 10 minute drive to the historic Fort Morgan with ferry boat to Dauphin Island. A full-service mini-mart (including pizza, ice cream and a liquor store) located across the main entrance to the Rokery for neccesities or a quick meal; Gulf Shores shopping, restaurants, and endless entertainment opportunities

Great place to stay--Beautiful cottage, very clean and comfortable, very "beachy".

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, off the beaten path, lots of room in the cottage for family. We immediately felt right at home--the furniture was nice and gave a very "beachy" feel to the cottage. Everything very clean, beds exceptionally comfortable. There is a total of 4 twin beds, so would be great for a family with children. Everything we needed for cooking and serving was here. It was nice to be able to do laundry and not drag it all home.

We were able to walk to the beach, but would recommend driving or renting a golf cart if you carry a lot with you. We would suggest adding ESPN and Wifi to this property, and a grill.

I could see myself living here.

Just as Advertised

Everything you needed was there. Clean, comfortable and convenient. The only suggestion I would add is to include internet access. Would return again next year.
