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

My family and I had a wonderful time. It was our first vacation and we couldn't have had a better place to spend it. It was very clean and nice. It had everything we needed. Thank you very much.

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.

We loved our stay here! This was my 3rd time at the Rookery, but my first at this property. I LOVED it! Leah was great to work with. We had absolutely no problems at all. Lots of extras in the kitchen - we wanted for nothing. Can't wait to come back and visit!
