Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6, Pool Access, Near Gulf, Gulf Shores

Welcome to our charming coastal cottage "Rookery Cottage". This charming beach cottage is offered at at great price for families.

Sit on your screen porch at the back of the cottage and watch the kids enjoy the pool! It's like having a pool in your backyard. We are the closest cottage to the Zero-Entry Pool! Little ones and their parents love the zero-entry pool. Plus, there's a 2nd pool near the entrance to Rookery III, you can walk to that pool as well.

We invite you to experience the quieter side of Gulf Shores, Alabama. As you drive along Ft Morgan Rd, feel your cares slip away. You'll love the beaches which are less crowded. Our guests love the individual cottages with convenient parking for 2 cars just outside the cottage front door.

Rookery Cottage features 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and living area which includes kitchen, dining area and living room which are open to each other.

The cottage is located in the tranquil coastal cottage community called Rookery III. Rookery is part of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge in historic Fort Morgan, Alabama.

The soft white sugar sand beaches and gorgeous water of the Gulf of Mexico are just 7/10ths of a mile from the cottage. Our guests can either walk or drive to the beach, whichever they decide.

While Ft Morgan is near the activities and action of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Al, Fort Morgan is "the road less travelled" - quieter, more private, with sugar sand beaches that are less crowded than the other beach communities in lower Alabama.

Rookery Cottage is an ideal vacation home for those who are ready to unplug from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Immerse yourself in life's simple pleasures again. Enjoy a hike on a wildlife trail, or go bird watching, there's also a morning run, walk and/or shelling on the beach, a swim in the revitalizing waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a paddleboard excursion, kayaking, bike riding, swimming laps in the adult pool, watch the kids enjoy the Zero-entry pool just behind the cottage, grill on the back deck, make popcorn and enjoy movie or game night at the cottage. There's no shortage of things to do. Watersports rentals, bike rentals and such are available along Ft Morgan Rd, or please feel free to bring your own.

Why Val and Renee Morel chose Fort Morgan

We love the peaceful surroundings at The Rookery III. It's quiet and peaceful, a real retreat! And, we like that you can drive to Gulf Shores in approx 20 minutes! We also LOVE the zero entry pool that is just outside the cottage! Keep an eye on the kids from the screened back porch. The back porch overlooks the zero-entry pool which is very convenient! The beach is nearby too, just 7/10ths of a mile from the cottage - walk or drive! The beaches are less crowded than Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! But, it's the same soft, white sugar-sand beach!

What makes this Cottage unique

Charming and Spacious, this raised Coastal Cottage has everything you'll need for a beach get-away! Located in heart of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge there are birds, wildlife and interesting foliage all around! The cottage is a short walk, or a shorter drive, to the Gulf of Mexico and soft, white sugar-sand beaches. The complex has 2 terrific pools! The zero-entry pool is within sight of the cottage. Just walk out the cottage's front door and arrive at the pool in a very short walk (2 minutes)! Want more to do? Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are just a short drive! Go to the zoo, see a movie at the cinema, shop at the Foley Outlet mall or the beach T-shirt and souvenier shops! Visit the Hangout or The Wharf! There's so much to do!

Called us personally regarding a tropical storm. The only complaint we have is the beds. It's great to have two rooms with king sized beds, but both were old and uncomfortable.

                                                                  My husband and I took my mother and our grandchildren to the Rookery III for a week. It was perfect for us. The house was just the right size and located close enough to Gulf Shores to be in the action, yet far enough away to not hear it! The pool was located immediately behind our little house and our grandchildren lived in it! I would say the only thing missing from our week was a gate to the pool on our end! Thank you for a fantastic time!

                                                                  Very nice and comfortable!

It is a very short drive to the beach and easy access once you get there. This was our first trip to Fort Morgan area and we enjoyed the fact it is not crowded in that area. The pool at the Rookery III is very nice and right outside our door. We would definitely stay there again and a great price!!!
