The Rookery house description

Got your eye on an empty calendar date? Is it, perhaps, tomorrow? Don't be shy to ask about a last minute deal! We wouldn't want our lovely beach home to be lonely!

A stay at the McKobishak will allow you to unwind, renew and relax. Enjoy your days lazily on the beautiful beach, sunbathing by the pool or resting in the shade of the tiki bar. Or try one of the several nature hikes through the neighboring Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. Don't worry if you choose a difficult hike because once you return to your home away from home, you can soothe your aching muscles in the outdoor hot tub. If you love history, a 4 mile drive west leads you to historic Fort Morgan. There you can catch the Mobile Bay Ferry to Dauphin Island where you can visit the Sea Lab and Fort Gaines, or if you're lucky enough to visit in April, you can watch the largest single day sailing regatta which starts at Dauphin Island. Maybe you'll even find yourself part of the sailing crew! Ahoy! From Dauphin Island, you're just a short drive to Mobile with it's historic USS Battleship, Aviation Museum and boundless restaurants and theatres. Heading 14 miles east on quiet Fort Morgan Road is a lovely drive where you're sure to find yourself feeling as if you're in a movie that details the charm of the south. This beautiful road will take you into the heart of Gulf Shores for shopping, amusement parks, movie theatres, nightlife, restaurants, mini golf. Our quiet, single family home is formally 3BR/2BA but we have designed the 3rd bedroom to be a playroom/den with a pull out queen size sleeper sofa, flat screen tv, dvd and Playstation2. Don't forget to bring your rainy day games, just in case! As you can see whatever your life style is, from nature enthusiast to history buff, from shopper to golfer or sailor, you will have endless choices of activities or leisure when you stay at the McKobishak!

              About the owner: We live in Winnipeg, Canada and purchased this property so that we can have a place to defrost. I am originally from Alabama so I am one of the lucky few folks who even know about this lovely area!

              Why the Owner Chose The Rookery:
              The Rookery offers a quiet beach stay. It's a unique opportunity to visit these beautiful, pristine white sand beaches and feel like the ocean is all yours. It's still an undiscovered treasure...SHHH....

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Screened front porch provides a perfect atmosphere to get lost in a good book. This home is nestles right up to the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. From the bedroom windows you can look out into the peaceful wilderness.
