About Leah

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 Alabama

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

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.

Enjoy the sound of silence.

  • 5 of 5

Had an enjoyable visit to the lovely small town of Magnolia Springs. We felt at home in this quaint cottage. There were kayaks, bicycles, and river floats available. We enjoyed walking the scenic quiet streets. We visited town of Foley as it was only 20 minutes away. Ate at Jesse's just down the street. Best steak we ever had but was a little on the "pricey" side BUT definitely worth it. Service was exceptional.

If your looking for a beautiful place away from all the hustle of the Gulf Shores this place is it!

My Family enjoyed our stay in this charming little house. The drive to the beach was perfect down some beautiful roads! If we ever make it back to The Gulf Shores we will definitely re book this place!

Nice little cottage. Everything needed was there.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lot of fun at OWA and the beach. The fishing was slow, but the lake was not far from the cottage. Thank you for letting us stay in your nice little cottage.

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.
