Property description

Surprise Landing Cottage is in the quiet, secluded area south of Fairhope known as Battles Wharf.

We are located 1 mile north of Marriott's Grand Hotel and Lakewood's Robert Trent Jones Golf Course on Mobile Bay. Several other golf courses are nearby. We are a short drive to historic Mobile, the Battleship Alabama and the white sandy beaches of the Alabama Gulf coast.

The cottage is fully furnished and you would have use of our private pier on beautiful Mobile Bay. Come and enjoy our spectacular sunsets.

There is a walking/biking trail practically at the back door and Fairhope's charming little shops are a short drive or bike away. The area is known for its many seafood restaurants on the Causeway and other local favorites nearby. Tanger's Outlet Center in Foley is a short 30 minute drive for great bargains and The Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort offers a huge variety of shopping and dining. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail shopping are a ten minute drive.

Fairhope's Arts and Crafts Festival takes place every spring and there are always local artists working in Fairhope. Mobile's Mardi Gras and Fairhope's own Mardi Gras celebrations attract many visitors who like our low-keyed style of celebrating. Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is a unique opportunity to learn about Coastal Alabama.

Whether you are looking for golfing, art, walking, biking, tennis, boating, fishing, crabbing, shopping, discovering coastal South Alabama or just plain relaxing, all are available for you to enjoy year round at Surprise Landing Cottage.

NO WEDDINGS, PARTIES, OR SOCIAL GATHERINGS. Please note that our property is not zoned, equipped, or insured for weddings or events like a reception or after rehearsal party or other gatherings.
