We have looked for the perfect beach house for many years! We finally found it in the summer of 2014. This cottage sits on a secluded 4 acre lot surrounded by live oaks and huge pines! You can enjoy the sunrise and sunsets overlooking Mobile Bay while sitting on your screen porch or out on your private dock. Bringing along a canoe or small boat, you have your own small boat launch from the yard.
Our property is a Birder's Heaven. Not only can you sit on the screen porch and watch Great Blue Herons, Osprey and Pelicans fly by and fish for a meal around the dock, but the neotropical migrants are amazing. We enjoy the hummingbirds also!
This cottage is one of a kind! The interior is a classic with heart pine floors, walls and ceilings. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, with the master suite having its own bath. The other two bedrooms share a lovely bath. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer. The kitchen includes a full stove and oven, dishwasher, and all the necessary cooking supplies to make it possible to prepare your own meals. Or you may drive just a few miles to enjoy fine cuisine at a number of restaurants at the Beach Club or in Gulf Shores.
Mobile Bay is a fisherman's paradise! You can fish off your private dock, catch live crab with one of the traps on site, or put your boat in and enjoy the bay. Mark catches redfish, flounder and specks.
If you enjoy the beach side of Ft Morgan, the Mobile St public beach is a short drive (or bicycle) away. I love to walk or run the Pine Beach Trail across highway 180 through Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. See photos to see the beauty! If you like to ride bicycles, there is a nice bike trail just down the road that goes all the way into Gulf Shores. The cottage is only about 8 miles from Gulf Shores, close enough to run to town for groceries!
