              Ft. Morgan is truly a unique beach destination with its eclectic colorful palette of beach homes positioned near the Gulf. Some have described it as the last 'beach frontier' with its lack of commercialism, yet close proximity to shops, golf courses, and restaurants. Its relaxed ambiance, lazy streets, and family friendly environment are reminiscent of simpler times. It is not unusual to see locals and tourists alike bicycling down neighborhood streets enjoying watching wildlife as well as other people participating various activities on Ft. Morgan's beautiful beaches.

              Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, wildlife viewing, spa, mini golf, golf, water slide

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We are so thrilled to have a vacation home in Ft. Morgan since Miriam grew up in Mississippi and spent many summers on the Gulf Coast as a child. While we were stationed at Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi and England Air Force Base in Louisiana,we vacationed on the Gulf Coast many times and experienced a number of other areas. We believe Ft. Morgan is especially inviting with its laid back, family friendly feel and charm.

              Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
              While visiting family in Fort Morgan,we fell in love with the area. Ft. Morgan is truly a unique beach destination with its colorful palette of eclectic beach homes positioned near the water. Some have described it as the 'last beach frontier' with its lack of commercialism, yet close proximity to shops, golf courses and restaurants. Its relaxed ambiance, lazy streets, and family friendly environment are reminiscent of simpler times. It is not unusual to see locals as well as visitors enjoying leisurely bike rides while watching wildlife or beach activities. Ft. Morgan is a charming,friendly community with a small town feel.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our beach view home provides a comfortable setting for family gatherings with its great floor plan, large rooms, ample storage Its close proximity (only 50 yds to sand, 100 yds to Gulf) to an uncrowded beach makes it especially convenient. Its fully equipped kitchen will meet your needs to prepare sumptuous meals using local fresh seafood found at nearby markets. But if you'd prefer to dine out, there are many excellent restaurants that you can experience listed for your convenience in our welcome book along with activities of interest and attractions in the area. This is our family's vacation home so we make every effort to maintain it in the best way possible to ensure it will be comfortable for us as well as our guests. We enjoy sharing it with others and doing what we can to help our guests have the best experience possible!
