About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-15)

Colorful Bedrooms, multi-floor Dens, and uninterrupted Gulf View welcome families and friends to beautiful Fort Morgan ...peacefully apart from, but easily accessible to, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

Beach Front, direct Beach access, Balconies on two levels – the resonating view of the Gulf of Mexico gets no better than this! Six Bedrooms and five Baths comfortably sleep 15. On the main floor, you'll enjoy the open-design Den/Kitchen/Dining Room which accommodates everything from quiet, formal dining to large family gatherings. As a bonus, there's an Upstairs Den providing a getaway area for children (or adults!), and includes a TV with DVD Player and a Game/Puzzle Table! Relax with a cup of coffee under the Covered Balconies stretching along the back of the house on both levels and enjoy the beauty of the pelicans skimming over the water. Be on the lookout for pods of dolphins as they swim by. Sometimes, it seems as if they stop to put on a show just for us!
All Bedrooms are carpeted. The Downstairs Den and Bathrooms have ceramic tile flooring. Seven TVs with satellite service, Wi-Fi Internet, icemaker and beautiful decorating make 'Papa Doc's' a Morgantown highlight.

The downstairs area includes the Master Bedroom (King) with a beautiful Gulf View and a Jacuzzi, a Bunkroom with 2 sets of Bunk Beds, and a Queen-Bed Bedroom, all with their own Private Baths, along with the roomy Den, Kitchen and Dining Area with seating for 12. Stools along the Kitchen Island provide additional Dining/Seating area, as does a Game Table in the Den. The upstairs area includes a Master Bedroom with a Queen Bed and private Bath, and 2 more Queen-Bed Bedrooms with a shared full Bathroom, the second Den, and washer/dryer facilities. All bedrooms upstairs enjoy that beautiful Gulf View too, along with balcony access!

Located 14 miles west of Gulf Shores in Morgantown on Fort Morgan Parkway, 'Papa Doc's' provides a calming vacation experience, uncrowded beaches, and gorgeous sunsets. Just a short walk from the house are 2 tennis courts and 2 swimming pools that you have access to. The Morgantown community is a great place for walking, jogging and biking too. For you Golf enthusiasts, 'Papa Doc's' is located near several of the area’s finest golf courses, including Kiva Dunes and The Peninsula! If you like trail-hiking or bird-watching, we are only a few miles from the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. There's something for the History buffs too! Located at the end of the Ft. Morgan peninsula is the Civil War Fort and Museum. You can also catch the Ferry to Dauphin Island and visit the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, Alabama’s marine science education and research laboratory.

We think the picturesque beauty and the peacefulness of Morgantown will bring you back to Papa Doc's time and again!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My husband and I spent a week or two every summer with our four children on the Gulf of Mexico beaches. After years of visiting the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach/Dauphin Island areas, when we found the charming neighborhood of Morgantown in Ft. Morgan we were hooked. In 1998 we decided it was time to build our own beach home. Now the children and grandchildren are grown, and 'Papa Doc's' has been a wonderful gathering place for our growing family. We would love to share our home with you and your family! We know your family and friends will find it as relaxing and special as we do. We hope you'll want to come back again and again!

Why the Owner Chose Morgantown (Fort Morgan, AL, USA):
We chose Ft. Morgan for its peacefulness, yet closeness to the Gulf Shores area. Then we chose the charming Morgantown community for its neighborhood association and access to the pools and tennis courts. Morgantown is a beautiful community that offers amenities you don't get with most beach houses. It's a wonderful area for walking, jogging & biking.
