Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay at Fish River Cottage. John is really lovely and very friendly.

He was a great host and gave some great local tips about places to eat, things to do in the area etc. It was our honeymoon and he was very sweet about it!

The cottage is amazing - very clean, quiet and surrounded by nature. Fairhope is such a pretty town and has great places to eat. Shopping outlets and the beach are within a 35 minute drive.

We really enjoyed our stay in Fairhope and would stay here again!

It was a great little cottage to stay in.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was nice & felt somewhat secluded. It was nicely kept & comfortable. The owner John was very kind, fruendly & helpful. It was clean, however we recommend dusting of the furniture etc. Our family has allergies & although clean, there was dust on some things.
