Why Daneen Buck chose Alabama

Passed down through several generations, "The Family Tree" holds many cherished memories - pier parties on the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving dinners outdoors on the screened porch, breakfast on the brick patio under the giant oak tree, Mardi Gras parades, outdoor weddings, Christmas parties, countless hours spent crabbing, floundering and searching for softshell crabs in the shallow waters, bonfires on the beach and cocktails under the stars at the unique little tiki bar at the end of the pier.

Beautiful House & Gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home perfectly situated on Weeks Bay. Idyllic view of water from master bedroom, screened porch, yard & private covered dock. Comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen & beautiful open living room/kitchen. Close enough to Fairhope to enjoy the quaint shops & restaurants, far enough away for quiet & peaceful relaxation.

Coastal Alabama Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a break from the winter weather and the daily work grind. Staying at the Family Tree cottage was just what we needed. It is located in an area that is within 10-15 minutes of downtown Fairhope, a charming town with great restaurants, shopping, antiques and art. The cottage is in a very quiet neighborhood located right on the bay, with great views, and just down the road from a bird estuary. The cottage is very spacious with beautiful art and a very comfortable feel, the listing on VRBO was quite accurate. We would go back again in a heart-beat.

An idyllic week in this lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is filled with art works, many by the owner. These and the antiques in the home add to its ambiance. The kitchen is well equipped. Everything is clean and the beds are comfortable. The adorable garden features add to the charm of the property. We never tired of the view of the bay and the massive live oak on the shore. The property is every bit as wonderful as pictured on the web site. The week went by way too fast despite the fact that Pat encouraged us to arrive early on check in day as there was a Mardi Gras parade scheduled to go by the house and the road would be closed if we arrived later. Being from New England we had never experienced Mardi Gras, so even this small parade was an experience that added to our enjoyment of the week. Fairhope is a beautiful community and should we return, I would hope to stay in this property again.

There is a wonderful breakfast place in downtown Fairhope called Buck's Diner - where the locals eat - and they also serve a meat and three style lunch featuring several meats and fresh local vegetables along with with homemade desserts. Other favorite lunch spots are the Fairhope Grill & Bar, The Bean & Bistro, and Mary Ann's Deli. Favorite dinner places are Gambino's Italian Grill, Panini Pete's Sunset Grille, and The Dragonfly Foodbar. The Wash House is also a favorite - a bit on the pricey side, but the place never disappoints. A mere 12 miles into town, the City of Fairhope is a quaint little community with a big personality. The downtown area is chock full of mom and pop shops that carry a tantalizing array of unique items, such as clothing and accessories, local artwork, pottery, and antiques, for starters, and city has its own website if you would like more up-to-date information about local happenings during the time of your visit. While visiting downtown Fairhope, drive down to the city pier, park your car and take a leisurely stroll along the water to catch one of the magnificent sunsets on the bay.
