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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are originally from this general area and live in nearby Daphne, Alabama with our two school age girls, and a menagerie of animals.

Why the Owner Chose Magnolia Springs, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage feel to this house, with heart pine floors and walls, combined with the close proximity to the river, was really what drew us to this house. Additionally, we love the beauty and charm of the historic town and the majestic live oaks.
