Fairhope cottage description

Recently renovated by a local green architect, this historic cottage is clean, bright and comfortable.

Enjoy the convenience of being in the “center of the action” for Arts and Crafts Festivals, Coastal BirdFest, Mardis Gras, or First Friday Art Walks and the serenity afforded by being one block removed from downtown on a quiet street with no through traffic.

A porch swing under a large live oak, screened porch, and grilling area welcome visitors to enjoy outdoor living in the mild coastal climate.

                    We had a great stay in our Fairhope Cottage. The cottage was quiet, clean, well equipped, and very close to town. The bikes provided made it fun and convenient to ride through the neighborhoods around town and down to the pier. Fairhope's location made it easy to drive up to Mobile or down to Gulf Shores in about 40 minutes. If you go through Foley, don't miss going to Lambret for lunch or dinner. All I'll say is that it's an experience with huge quantities of good Southern food. Other places we enjoyed eating at were Felix's fish camp on the causeway (great view) toward Mobile and Big Daddy's on the Fish River in Fairhope. Make sure you spend time strolling the streets of Fairhope with all the interesting shops and beautiful flowers in bloom everywhere.

                    Obviously you love Fairhope because you are looking here. Now you have found the perfect cottage for you and your special person to stay in. Small cottage that " lives large" - open living -dining room with kitchen right where you want it. Cool bath with stone floor shower and great mattress to sleep on. About 5 minutes from town so you can walk everywhere. Restaurants everywhere to walk to. Quiet - yes at the "almost" end of the dead end. Grab it now but forget Feb, March and part of April 2014 - you bet we're coming back from Michigan.

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, tourists without a car, people with disabilities, adventure seekers, girls getaway.
