Absolutely Amazing 😊😊😊😊

  • 5 of 5

I want to first say this is the cleanest and best well kept place I have ever seen.... I was so taken back by how peaceful and comfortable we felt! Mrs. Mary Jane had made sure to have everything you could possibly need taking a trip out of town from snacks to drinks if needed... ALL the necessities of home even the sweetest fresh cut flowers on the kitchen table with a pretty Happy Mothers Day balloon in them! Above and beyond can't even cover it.... We felt special and cared for as if we were family! Thank you Thank you Thank you..... Staying in Papas Country Cotage for our daughters wedding made our weekend there even more special.... We will definitely be back .... I wouldn't ever stay anywhere else!!!!

Very comfortable. Great place to write my book.

  • 5 of 5

Mary Jean and George are wonderful. The cottage is well appointed and quite comfortable. I was writing a book and it was quiet for working. I enjoyed a good two-mile walk every day and the weather was beautiful. It was an early spring. Flowers bloomed everywhere. We enjoyed driving to the bluff every evening to watch the sunset. Can't wait to go back!

I just want to say, leaving our new Alabama "family" after 5 weeks is difficult. Mary Jean and George are quite simply the most wonderful couple we have met in a long time. They went above and beyond what was expected. We even helped celebrate George's birthday by going to dinner with them and the rest of their family. Papa's Cottage has everything that one can imagine when staying in a rental property in the Fairhope/Gulf Shores area. Nestled in the tress on a peaceful country road, it is centrally located to everything. After traveling for 2 days, the last thing we wanted to do was go grocery shopping. Not to worry. Mary Jean had muffins and rolls, coffee and juice waiting for us for breakfast. We had our grandsons with us and she had even bought soda and special snacks for them. We have already booked Papa's Cottage for 2018. Mary Jean and George, thank you both for everything! And Scooter says thank you too! Give Maddie a kiss for us. Love, Len and Becky

Nice quiet quant property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The home was decorated for the Christmas holiday which made it seem even more like our home for the holidays. Even gifts for us! Everything was neat, clean, tidy. I just can't say enough good about it. The property owners are so kind. Quiet atmosphere away from hustle of the city. You can see the stars at night. The kids loved playing outside gathering pine cones and just being kids. We most definitely would stay here again.

Quiet, peaceful, comfortable,pet friendly and clean. Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four came to spend Thanksgiving with my parents that live about 6 miles away. Papa's Cottage was perfect for our stay. Mary Jean welcomed us with big hugs. She had everything we needed for breakfast so we didn't have venture back out for breakfast supplies that night. Kitchen was well stocked for making our dishes to take for thanksgiving meal. House was clean. Beds were good. Even the rollaway was very comfy and fits in room with twin bed.

Wifi/internet was slow, but worked just fine.

Will be staying at Papa's Cottage whenever we come visit family in Fairhope if available.

Mary Jean is a true southern lady.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the hospitality and the many lovely details our hosts provided. There were special touches of Fall decor, blueberry muffins, etc for breakfast, and even toys for my toddler grandson! The house is spotlessly clean and comfortable and in a beautiful setting. Thank you for everything Mary Jean!
