Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

The house is said to be the first in Robertsdale with indoor plumbing and said to be built by a Chicago news reporter in 1902. Two Czechoslovakian families shared the home in 20th century. The families were bee keepers and sausage makers of Robertsdale.

There are stairs at the front of the home that must be used to access the private room. visible in picture. A Walmart is located a half a mile from the house and a laundry mat and grocery store are at the corner of 104 and 59, approximately a mile from the home.

This 115 year old home is situated 24.0 miles from Gulf Shores Alabama just off of Hwy 59 or Gulf Beach Hwy. The home has been completely renovated since 1998. There is still some work to be done to the home.

There are two private entrances to the home. The larger part of the house is not included in this listing. The private room listed here has its own private entrance. It is clean and comfortable. The antique bath tub needs to be professionally refinished. The tub surround is new tile and the water is endlessly heated by a tankless gas hot water heater. There is a coffee maker and well water but no kitchen sink in the room (only bathroom).

This is a new vacation rental so I don't have all of the chairs I want to have set up on the front porch or a microwave and other amenities I plan for the future. It is a work in progress. It is however a very comfortable place to sleep for a few days with a large yard. Quiet and secure. It is convenient if you have business in Fairhope or Mobile, AL and want to get to the beach while in the area.

The yard is one acre. NO SMOKING INSIDE AND PLEASE DISPOSE OF ANY CIGARETTE ENDS.

The location is convenient to the beach and many local attractions. Lamberts' Cafe "Home of the Throwed Rolls" is 12.2 miles away.

13.1 Miles from Fairhope Municipal Pier, and 28.2 miles from downtown Mobile Alabama.

The Original Oyster House in Spanish Fort 23.1 miles, Historic Blakely State Park 25.3 miles.

This area is also popular for canoe camping trips. Trail maps can be found at alabamaforeverwild Mobile-Tensaw Delta

I love the birds that show up in screen. The mulberry tree in the front of the home creates an incredible amount of bird activity. I"ve made videos of their antics!
