The Rookery cottage description

Welcome to our cozy Coastal Cottage. Step back in time to a place where you can relax on the screened porch, swim in the fabulous pool, hop across the street to the most beautiful white sandy beaches on the Gulf Coast and the fishing is incredible.

The outdoor jacuzzi, Tiki hut and bar-b-que area offer you a place to enjoy the outdoors. This is a haven for the lovers of nature since you would be located next to The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and down the road from Historic Fort Morgan and The Ferry to Dauphin Island and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

Enter through the screened in porch to a large living, dining and kitchen area with room for everyone. There are three nice size bedrooms with a queen, double, sleeper sofa and two sets of bunk beds. There are 2 full baths with a full size washer and dryer.

The perfect place to enjoy all the wonders of the Gulf and the surrounding areas.

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About: Our family of four resides in Helena, AL

                  Why The Rookery:
                  The Alabama Coast has a special place in my heart. I'm very blessed to share a part of my childhood with my husband & children. The Rookery gives us a place to visit that is away from the high rise condos; away from the crowds. A place where we can get back in touch with nature and step back into time. Our porch is a great place for family dinners, relaxation, playing board games & enjoying each other's company.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We love The Rookery because it's close enough to shopping, dining & entertainment, but far enough away from crowded beaches. We love the proximity to Mobile Bay, which is ideal for watching the sun set & fishing. Walking nature trails, riding bikes, swimming and special family time will offer you a vacation to remember.
