The Rookery cottage description
The winding road to the “Lantern Light” takes you between the Gulf of Mexico and the Mobile Bay in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, among scattered beach home communities. It invites you to discover the white sandy beaches, watch the dolphins as they playfully swim and jump through the waves, or watch the sunset as it disappears beyond the horizon. The views are exquisite without being blocked by high rise buildings.
The “Lantern Light” is a wonderfully decorated cottage that is spacious with an open room concept with extra seating. The dining set has a counter height table with chairs so the people at the table can still see the 46" HD TV, watch movies, play games and still be interactive with others.
The "Lantern Light" has two bedrooms with Queen beds, one with two Twin beds. There is also a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room. There are 2 full bathrooms.
The “Lantern Light” is uniquely versatile in size and location. It provides a cozy cottage for 2 with plenty of space for 8!
This is great for those who are desiring a quiet and peaceful vacation or a “do as much as you can in a week” style vacation. Visit the beautiful beaches, lounge by the pool or go para sailing! The choices of activities are seemingly endless!
Come visit the beautiful Gulf Coast. Relax. Play. Enjoy.

Home was very nice and well equipped. Easily can accommodate 6 adults and 2 children. Living, dining, kitchen area are exactly as shown in the pictures. The pool was amazing. Large, clean and well-maintained. Easily accessible from our cottage. My husband only wished that the beach was more accessible. There is NO boardwalk from the parking lot to the beach! Must have washed away! You really couldn't walk to the beach from this cottage, but we had so much stuff to carry, we probably would have driven any way.

We had a great time. The property was better than expected. More room than the pictures show. Loved having the pool. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and everything you need to prepare a meal. Nice quite area. Only thing that I was a little disappointed in was the short walk to the beach. It is a little more than a short walk. Especially if you have small children, However it is a very short drive to the beach. So not a big deal. I would rent the unit again.

This was better than we expected . Lantern Light was more spacious than we expected. The pictures did not do it justice. The zero entry pool was great. Our little ones loved it and our older ones enjoyed it also. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun and family friendly place to stay.
