Fairhope cottage description

Start the day perched from a vantage that can yield a
spectacular sunrise. If you are lucky, a school of bottle-nose porpoises will pass just off the end of the pier. A place where brown pelicans and seagulls dive for fish and wild ducks glide just out of reach into perfect landings in the small canal that runs alongside the house. Equip yourself with a rod and enjoy some of the best fishing around, or head out with your favorite book as the tide gently laps at the foot of the pilings of the pier. Weeks bay is a treasure of undiscovered natural beauty. The cozy little cabin comes equipped with three bedrooms, two baths and all the amenities needed for good living, including a washer, and dryer. The cabin sleeps up to ten with couches and bunks for the little fishermen. Strategically located, headquarters is just 15 minutes from downtown Fairhope where you can enjoy shopping the quaint little boutiques; or drive forty minutes south to sun on the beautiful white sands of Gulf Shores. Between excursions on the rivers that feed the small bay, you can tie the boat at the end of the pier; or dock alongside the house in the small channel depending on the tides. For dinner, you can cook fresh seafood ( caught or bought) in the full kitchen, or try one of the many restaurants in whatever direction you happen to drive. Then get up the next day and start all over again.

                        My family and I had such a WONDERFUL experience staying at the Sunrise Cottage! Spending every morning watching the sunrise and dolphins swimming by was purely tranquil. The owner's were so easy to deal with and the cottage was exactly as advertised!! Such a GREAT place for children and an AWESOME location!! Just minutes away from Orange beach, and let's not forget the outlet malls!!! We will definitely want to stay there again!!!

                        My family of 10 people stayed comfortably. We were visiting Fairhope to attend our son's college graduation at The University of Mobile. The home was located in a perfect location to visit Mobile or Gulf Shores. The enchanting town of Fairhope is within 15 minutes of this home. My son and nephews fished off the pier and my son caught a sting ray along with several fish. Our family made memories we will never forget.

                        We have stayed at this property several times. It is extremely comfortable and child- friendly. My kids had a blast on the dock and rope swing. The kitchen is well-equipped and the decor is nice and cozy. It is out of the way on Weeks Bay, not Mobile Bay where the houses tend to be on top of each other. Here, you can't even see your neighbors. Most of all, the owners are easy to work with and helped me in an emergency situation when I needed to stay there while my father was very ill. Highly recommended.

                        Rustic, removed and comfortable. Really a perfect place to unwind. Great dock to sit out and have quiet time. Fantastic biking from right out of the drive way. Easy to put in for canoeing around Weeks Bay. Gorgeous Bay and not overdeveloped. Reasonably priced. We will definitely go back!

                        We visited Sunrise Cottage this week. Having lived in the area, and back to visit friends and family, we knew what we were looking for in a cottage. We found this cottage to be a very nice, renovated old bay house. It is exactly what we were looking for. Great location! Convenient to Fairhope. Great fishing and pier to sun on. Beds were comfy. Very quaint and cozy. Take water shoes w you for getting in the bay. If you are interested in a quiet, laid back vacation this is the place for it. Our Boxer loved it too! We will be back!
