About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
You will be renting directly from the owners - no large property management firm with hidden fees! We built the house and maintain the house ourselves - truly a 'vacation rental by owner' experience! We have been renting our houses to others for over 10 years, and we have many repeat guests. Join us!! We know you will love this house and area as much as we do!

Just off the large living room is what we call the Media Room - couch, floor pillows, and large TV will make it a gathering spot for those watching their favorite movie...close the doors and the rest of your party can visit in the living room with 2 new couches. The Cook's Kitchen is complete with table & chairs, all appliances, and is fully equipped to make meal preparation breeze -just bring your food! The Laundry room and 1/2 bath are adjacent to the living room for easy use. Enjoy views of the Gulf or Mobile Bay from every window in the house.

Ft. Morgan sits a spit of land at the mouth of Mobile Bay. From our house you have great views of both the Gulf of Mexico to the south and Mobile Bay to the north. You can also view the Mobile shipping channel - interesting to those of us who enjoy something unique. There is lots of history available if you visit the two Civil War-era forts that guard the mouth of the Bay. A trip across the Bay to Dauphin Island to visit Fort Gaines as well as the SeaLab is a fun trip - take the Mobile Bay Ferry, with or without your car.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We both grew up near the beach and always dreamed of owning a house at the beach. We found Fort Morgan, only 2 hours away from our home (at the time), and fell in love with the area immediately! We built 'On Dune Pond' just for us, and now we are happy to share it with you & your family. Our daughter was nine years old when we started coming over for quiet weekends, and she loved her time on the sand, in the sea, and learning about the constellations. Now she shares this place with everyone through her photos. We know you will enjoy your vacation here! Chris & Sue Willoughby
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
Fort Morgan is the perfect place for a vacation! It is close to several large cities, but feels so far off the beaten path. We love our neighborhood of 'single-family only houses' - no busy commercial developments or condos for us! We didn't need or want elevators, pools or heavy, self-closing doors...open decks, large windows, comfy beds, big kitchen and a short stroll to the beach. That's what we wanted, and that's what we love about our place. You will too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This area is rich in history, nature, and man-made interests. Fort Morgan was made famous in the Civil War battle for control of Mobile Bay. Union Admiral Farragut brought his fleet past the fort, wandered into a torpedo field, and famously cried 'damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead', ultimately winning the three week battle against Confederate Admiral Buchanan for control of the fort. We are surrounded by the Gulf Islands National Seashore, and we regularly enjoy the many trails and protected beaches in the area. Don't miss an easy hike on Pine Beach Trail, ending at what we call 'Shell Beach' - the name says it all! Fishing in Mobile Bay or out in the gulf is easy, and there are lots of charter boats just minutes away at the Fort Morgan marina. So much to do...or so little - you decide!
