The Rookery 1101--Sweet Retreat
Relax on beautiful Fort Morgan Peninsula in Gulf Shores. The cottage is located in the Rookery Community, 15 miles west of Gulf Shores just past the 6 mile marker. Park right in front of the cottage and no elevators to carry your things up and no long hallways. Just like being at home.
The Rookery offers two saltwater pools (the large pool has a zero entry for the little ones), a hot tub for the adults, a tennis court and a family grilling area. The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge borders the cottages, a real bird watcher's paradise. Easy access to the white, sandy beach is across the street (0.4 miles), no crowds, no high rises, watch for dolphins on their daily swim. Take the ferry over to Dauphin Island and visit Fort Gaines & the Sea Lab Estuary. Explore any of the three marked Bon Secour trails, all within a ten minute drive. Three championship golf courses are located on the Fort Morgan peninsula (Kiva Dunes – 2 miles, Peninsula – 10 miles and Gulf Shores Golf Club – 14 miles). Historic Fort Morgan is less than six miles away. Gulf Coast Migration Route Bird Banding – Spring April 5-13, Fall October 4-12. Relax on the screened in porch and listen to nature at its finest.
