2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 4
Peaceful, river cabin just minutes to the beach. Enjoy the restful ambiance of this well decorated 2 bedroom 1 ½ bath cabin on Bon Secour River, newly on the rental market with new furniture. You can relax while viewing the river on the extended deck. Canoe up the river and return to a simpler life of floating and cruising under the live oaks in the provided canoe. Community pool just steps away and an on premise boat ramp, so bring your boat. You can fish for dinner right from your deck, clean your catch in the outside sink/cleaning station then cook your dinner on the charcoal grill. Just a few minutes to Gulf Shores Parkway with all the activities ( go carts, putt putt, water park and amusement park, etc.) and restaurants. Shopping galore…close to Tanger Outlet and the shops of Pelican place. Orange Beach is tops for deep sea and inshore fishing with para sail and dolphin cruses too. You can leave the crowds behind and return to paradise on the river with turtles, dolphins, cranes, herons, pelicans, seagulls, ducks, and abundant wildlife to view. Enjoy the best of all worlds here on the Alabama Gulf coast. Peaceful quite family atmosphere but, just minutes away are a Water park, putt putt, go carts tracks and an amusement park. The beach is only a few minutes’ drive with the Hang Out available to eat and play. The world famous bar Florabama is just a short drive to get your groove on and party the night away. There are fabulous shopping, restaurants and a movie theater at the Wharf with a huge Farris wheel for amazing views. Check out the concert schedule at the amphitheater for great music events. Festivals abound in this area. It seems there is always a festival going on here or close by i.e. Hangout music fest, Shrimp fest, strawberry festival, sausage festival and the Hot air balloon festival (always on Father’s Day) just to name a few. Mardi Gras is a month long event here in the Mobile area (only 50 minute drive) with parades almost every day and even here on the river is a boat parade floating right by our complex.
We have a newly build fish and farmers market in Foley on Friday and Saturdays but you can always get great fresh produce at Braxton’s in Robertsdale. We are right in the middle of the harbors for our shrimp boat fleet so very close by your will find the freshest shrimp and seafood right off the boats….visit Aquilla, Bon Secour Fisheries, Billy’s, Joe the shrimp man or Safe Harbor. We have great, close by, grocery stores Publix and Winn Dixie with a brand new Rouse’s in Gulf Shores.
If it should dare rain we have a movie theater close by and a bowling alley in Foley also.
You would be hard pressed to eat at all the restaurants we have in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. We have provided a list of restaurants with websites for more information in the cabin. Close by and not on the beaten path is the Tin Top restaurant with a quaint outside oyster bar and with music seasonally. Also don’t forget to get to Jesse’s in Magnolia Springs – winner of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association Gulf Coast Fiery Four steak contest. King Neptune’s has been featured in Coastal Living as one of our favorite seafood dives.
Schedule your deep sea or inshore fishing trips in Orange Beach or dolphin cruise, parasail trips, zip line and helicopter rides too. The Blue Angels are flying again in Pensacola so you don’t want to miss that.
All that and more are available to you but the best part is you have all the peace and relaxing you can handle here on the river to come back to. Bon Secour river is brackish so perfect for speckled trout and redfish. You can always cast net for mullet if you choose. We have crab, turtles and more varieties of birds than you can count. The boat ramp is just steps from your door or the community pool is only a short stroll in the other direction. So much to do or you can do nothing at all and watch the tide come in and go out while the sun sets on your perfect vacation.

Six wonderful weeks! So sad it had to end.
We loved our stay at this cabin on the Bon Secour River. We loved the deck where we could sit and watch the pelicans dive into the water, or drink our coffee, or feed the turtles who waited in the morning for a treat. The location was perfect for us. It was close to everything and yet away from noise and distraction. The living space provided all that we needed plus an extra room if a guest visited. The kitchen was well equipped, water pressure amazing and beds very comfortable. Lance responded immediately whenever we had a question or needed something. We were so pleased with our experience, we plan on returning next year!
Better than expected!!!
We were hoping for a nice relaxing getaway after Christmas....our experience exceeded our expectations!!! Only about 2 miles from the main road with all of the best eating and shopping, yet you feel like you’re the only one on the river! The house had a perfect layout for our family of 3. The weather was cooler than we expected so we weren’t able to enjoy the porch and swing as much as we would have liked. We will definitely come again!!
Better than the advertisement!
We loved the cabin, so much wildlife right outside on the river. Minutes from the beaches. Cabin was very cozy & had everything a person could need .
Well equipped condo with lovely deck overlooking the river. We had a peaceful week with our little dog, walking, fishing and just relaxing.
If you're looking for relaxation in a private setting, but still want to be close to restaurants, shopping and the BEACH, this is the perfect getaway. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking. Comfortable beds! Loved that I could bring my pup! Literally a 10 minute drive down Hwy 59 and you're at the beach. Close to the state park as well! Would definitely stay again!
Really nothing negative to say!
Our family of 3 had a wonderful stay at the river cabin! Access to Gulf Shores beaches was quick and easy. The location was perfect and we enjoyed being on the river and having a change of scene from the beach. The cabin was quiet and relaxing! We loved feeding the fish and turtles and exploring some of the river in the canoe. The kitchen was well equipped. We visited in August and the A/C worked great and kept us cool and comfortable. The cabin faces West, so the summer sun was usually too harsh for us to sit on the patio in the evening, but it was great in the mornings or late evening - after the sun went down. We brought all of our own gear, but there were a few fishing poles, some beach and swim toys available at the cabin that were nice to borrow if you didn't bring your own. The water pressure in the shower was fantastic! Communication with the owner was great and I received my security deposit a week following our stay. Would love to stay here again!
