Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Come enjoy the fabulous sunsets and relaxing atmosphere in this spacious a-frame on the bay! The house is just minutes from the great shopping and dining of the city of Fairhope, but just off the beaten path enough to feel private and secluded! Located on the eastern shore of Mobile bay, the house faces almost due south, meaning refreshing breezes in the summer, but protection from the wind in the winter, making the outdoor weather fabulous year-round!

This house would be perfect for two vacationing families. The downstairs bedrooms both have King sized beds, while the bunks upstairs will sleep lots of kids!The sandy beach is perfect for small kids. A snowbird couple would also love this house, as the upstairs need not even be used! The view from the kitchen as you cook is just breathtaking.

There is a public boat ramp just one mile away, so bring your boat for skiing, tubing and fishing on the bay, or for a beautiful ride up the nearby magnolia river to swim in the cold spring waters.

Don't forget to pack your appetite for seafood. When baited, the three crab traps provided catch as many as a dozen crabs a day!

Why Trin Ollinger chose Fairhope

It is a great place to vacation. We love to sail, ski, tube, fish and swim. It is only 20 minutes from our primary home, so it was convenient.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to be on the water as much as possible, and the breezes and weather here cannot be beat!

Quaint location

  • 4 of 5

Pros: the kids spent most of the time here fishing off the dock, which they enjoyed and the home is cozy and has a lot of space if you have a large crew. Pretty decently stocked with kitchen items.

Cons: the single bed mattresses upstairs were hard hard hard. Caution for anyone with very sensitive motion sickness: this house IS on stilts so sometimes there is swaying you can feel inside the house. Also as others had mentioned, there was construction on houses of both sides of this vacation home so it was pretty noisy at times.

Overall, nice for a few days stay but could definitely use some renovations/upgrades.

Everything You Need, Beautiful View, Low Price

  • 4 of 5

Nothing is fancy or modern. But it is very relaxing, the water is a stone's throw away and there is plenty of room.

Beautiful views morning and evening!

  • 4 of 5

Had a good visit for the month. Only 11 miles from our son's family, it was very convenient for everyone. I enjoyed fishing from a kayak after dark under nearby dock lights. We had a very comfortable stay.

Great, quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Location right on the water, great view. Kids enjoyed catching a crab in the trap.

House had all the basics needed for the stay.

Was about a 20 minute drive to stores and the yacht club.

Had a group of 8 stay fairly comfortable. Could not beat the price given the location.
