About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
As you head back to check out the cottage, you note the secluded outside shower. When you walk in the front door upstairs, the light, spacious interior takes you aback. This is no cookie-cutter rental: With walls the blue-green of the Gulf and crisp white trim, the peace of the cottage engulfs you. Windows that flood the room with light offer breathtaking views.
You move into the kitchen, where a bottle of wine welcomes you. As you pop some potatoes in the convection oven, the gleaming granite countertops and wonderful equipment inspire you to do some awesome meals while you’re here.
The kids have already checked out the bedrooms and bathrooms, which offer the same beautiful décor. With original art throughout, the cottage already feels like home. The owners have thought of everything—a wire crate for the dog, puzzles and games for the kids, even a sippy cup and some cereal bowls, just in case you forgot something. With a washer and dryer and a generous supply of linens, the beautifully appointed bedrooms and baths promise exceptional comfort and ease.
After dinner, you watch a breathtaking sunset from the gazebo swing. Then you head back to the beach for a walk--how great to be just steps away! The wide, sandy beach is spectacular and on-leash dogs are welcome; you can’t wait to explore more tomorrow. And the neighborhood is amazing--no generic concrete structures, no crowds, no parking lots, no bright lights, no traffic, no noise. The stars are so clear you think you could touch them.
As you're lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf, you wonder why you only booked only ONE week. You decide to book for next year now, because this is definitely YOUR Fort Morgan house.

Ft. Morgan represents a rare gem--a quiet, uncrowded, unspoiled beach. Area residents are enormously friendly. Although our piece of paradise is away from the Gulf Shores crowds, we still lie within easy access of the outlet mall, restaurants, water park, and Gulf Shores attractions, giving us the best of both worlds.
On Ft. Morgan itself, we have a marina, restaurants, convenience and liquor stores as well as a variety store (Dollar General), golf courses, numerous churches, a wildlife refuge, a bird sanctuary, a state park at the fort, bike lanes, access to deep sea fishing, and kayak rentals (Russ will deliver your kayak right to our house and pick it up at the end of your stay!).
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Jack and Jeanne are retired Louisiana State University professors; Jack is truly retired and Jeanne now works as a survey, data, and predictive analytics consultant. We have a 15-year-old daughter, a corgi, and a rescue chihuahua--which is why our house is both kid- and pet-friendly. We've tried to make our house the kind of place we love to rent, with more the feel of a 'B&B' than a stock-issue condo.
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We bought The Lighthouse because Ft. Morgan represents a true treasure--one of the last 'beach frontiers.' The lack of development means that wildlife and birds remain, people are friendly, and when you walk on to the porch at night, it truly feels as if you could reach out and touch the stars.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have tried hard to provide everything a family needs. We've provided a flat screen, HD TV with satellite, DVD players, an iPod dock, a gourmet kitchen, a Weber grill, teak table and chairs on the deck, and a wonderful swing (that swing was where our love affair with The Lighthouse began). We want our guests to feel at home. The fact that we're 25 steps from the beach means that you can feel connected to the beach and ocean and often watch pods of dolphins from the house. Beautiful sunsets and the peace and tranquility of Ft. Morgan await you here.
