We are originally from this general area and live in nearby Daphne, Alabama with our two school age girls, and a menagerie of animals.
Leah purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Leah chose Magnolia Springs
We have been playing on the Magnolia river for years- boating, swimming and canoeing. It was our dream to have a home there. We fell in love with this house many years before we were able to purchase it.
What makes this Cottage unique
This inviting cottage in the historic village of Magnolia Springs is mere steps from the beautiful river. Walks and bike rides under the majestic live oaks are a must, as well as lunch or dinner at Jesse's. Our favorite activities are kayaking, fishing and birdwatching.

Graduation weekend in Fairhope.
Great relaxing weekend - loved the birds, especially the owl that came back every morning.
This was our second visit to this adorable cottage. Such a peaceful place to be. Out of the way but so close to all beaches, quaint towns for shopping, amazing restaurant Jessie's just a few blocks away. We spent every evening standing on the dock watching the sunset. Leah and Jimmy have done such a great job making sure you have what you need. From a well stocked kitchen to kayaks to enjoy the beautiful river on.
Well maintained home in picturesque setting. Close to River for fishing and canoeing. Lots of dining and shopping choices nearby.
LOVED this Cottage and our Stay!
So happy to have discovered this quaint cottage! If you're looking to trade a few days from the hustle and bustle of life for peace and tranquility among a picturesque setting, this is the perfect spot! The home has everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay, including a fantastic, screened porch. Both the cottage and the town are conducive to relaxing and recharging...maybe even reminiscing about simpler times. Our girls had a blast swinging on the rope hanging in a tree and playing at the river's edge less than 50 yards away. The owner was very communicative and accommodating. We'll definitely return.
Very warm and cozy
Awesome place. Nice nights by fire pit.
So relaxing, everything we needed. I felt like I was back at my grandparents. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Our cottage is located in the heart of historic Magnolia Springs, AL. The community's name comes from the ever-flowing springs and the abundance of aged magnolia trees that grace nearly every residential garden. A majestic canopy of giant oak trees lines Oak Street, just one block away. During your stay, you can view waterbirds, go fishing or swimming from the neighborhood pier, just a few steps away. While you are enjoying the pier, you can see the the only remaining river route US mailman in the continental United States (see pic). For lunch or dinner, Jesse’s Award Winning Restaurant is a short 10 minute walk down Oak Street. The beautiful town and river are perfect for travelers who enjoy walking, running, biking and water sports as well as sightseers and birdwatchers. The location is a very convenient drive to shopping, in Foley or Fairhope, to Gulf beaches, and to many restaurants and spas.
