Start the day perched from a vantage that can yield a spectacular sunrise. If you are lucky, a school of bottle-nose porpoises will pass just off the end of the pier. A place where brown pelicans and seagulls dive for fish and wild ducks glide just out of reach into perfect landings in the small canal that runs alongside the house. Equip yourself with a rod and enjoy some of the best fishing around, or head out with your favorite book as the tide gently laps at the foot of the pilings of the pier. Weeks bay is a treasure of undiscovered natural beauty. The cozy little cabin comes equipped with three bedrooms, two baths and all the amenities needed for good living, including a washer, and dryer. The cabin sleeps up to ten with couches and bunks for the little fishermen. Strategically located, headquarters is just 15 minutes from downtown Fairhope where you can enjoy shopping the quaint little boutiques; or drive forty minutes south to sun on the beautiful white sands of Gulf Shores. Between excursions on the rivers that feed the small bay, you can tie the boat at the end of the pier; or dock alongside the house in the small channel depending on the tides. For dinner, you can cook fresh seafood ( caught or bought) in the full kitchen, or try one of the many restaurants in whatever direction you happen to drive. Then get up the next day and start all over again.
Fish, Swim, Boat from your own pier.

Exactly what we were looking for!
We were so happy to find a place on the water, away from the hustle and bustle to relax. The cottage has everything you need to have a great vacation! We enjoyed fishing on the private pier, and catching blue crab in the crab pots provided! The view from the swinging chairs in the yard is incredible, and just adds to the charm of this place. Anyone that wants family friendly activities nearby will not be disappointed! There is so much to see and do within a short drive, that you won’t have time to do it all!! Local restaurants are very friendly and have some of the best cooking I’ve had on a vacation. There is nothing in the world like relaxing in the yard and watching dolphins swim by!! Being “up north” people , we find that really really awesome! I just left, but I’m looking forward to returning already! Thanks for a vacation to remember!
Glad y’all enjoyed it
Beautiful location, wonderful home!
This was such a quiet beautiful place. There was hardly any boats on the bay, so it was perfect. We saw dolphins and pelicans and were in heaven. We used this as base to go to Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and exploring the area. When we got back to the house after a long day of walking the beaches, it was the perfect place to relax in. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, the beds comfortable, it was very enjoyable - we'll be going back!
Had a relaxing week on the bay - great dock
We enjoyed the fishing and crabbing. We caught about 3 dozen crabs right off the dock and a couple of large red fish. Very nice dick for the family to relax. The dogs had space to run around. The sunrises were beautiful! Thanks so much to the owners for being helpful and accessible.
Glade you had a great time
It gets better every year!
We come down to the house every year to fish for ten days and it is awesome to have the boat tied up at the dock.
Beautiful sunrises in the mornings and a cool breeze in the evening sitting out on the dock.
My favorite vacation spot!
This is my absolute favorite vacation spot!
Love the place but the yellow flies were a nuisance. Would love to there again when the flies are gone.
It is just 15 miles to all the amenities of Fairhope, an artist’s colony with its wide selection of galleries, shops and eateries. Gulf Shores is about 35 minutes to the south.
