Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

'Morgans Escape' is a comfortable beach house located 200 yards from the beautiful private beach of Morgantown. You can sit on the swing or an adirondack chair on the front porch (38 feet long) and listen to the ocean waves while enjoying fantastic Gulf views - or watch the children swim in the pool located right next to the house - or ride your bicycle along Fort Morgan Road, play tennis or just walk along the beach and collect shells. You can do as much or as little as you want in Fort Morgan.

Fort Morgan is a 20 mile peninsula bordered to the north by Mobile Bay and to the South by the Gulf of Mexico and Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. There are several world class golf courses located within a few miles of the house (Kiva, Peninsula and Plantation). The NEW Gulf Shores Marina & Tacky Jacks restaurant are just down the road where you can launch your boat or book a fishing charter. You can also take a ferry to Dauphin Island for a day trip (visit the estuarium or just ride bikes). Other area activities include shopping at Tanger Outlet Mall, visiting the waterpark in Gulf Shores, going on a Dolphin cruise, or playing miniature golf.

There are many excellent restaurants in the Fort Morgan/Gulf Shores area and a wide selection of Arts & Antiques stores in the city of Fairhope - about 45 minutes away.

'Morgans Escape' has a large kitchen and living area with plenty of room for the family to visit and have fun. Two bedrooms open to a back deck with ocean views. There is a large dining table and a card table for games. There is a swing, picnic table and hammock under the carport. Dogs and children are welcome. These are pictures I've taken over the years.

About Cindy Gordon

Cindy and Charles Gordon

Cindy Gordon purchased this house in 2002

Why Cindy Gordon chose Fort Morgan

The Ft. Morgan area is a great, peaceful retreat from the hectic pace of life and work.

What makes this house unique

The single most enjoyable thing we love about our beach house is the front porch. Family and friends gather there and visit for hours. Things we do not take time to do at home. We seldom watch TV at the beach but we do enjoy music.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite beach trips yet....even with Tropical Storm Cindy! We loved the house and felt totally at home. The house was well stocked with pots/pans/etc. Furniture and beds were very comfy and clean. Loved the bedroom with 2 sets of bunks! Great for kids. Perfect setup with the outdoor shower and water hose for cleaning up after the beach. It was very convenient to the beach and right next door to the pool. We are a family of runners and this was the perfect neighborhood for morning runs. Our kids also brought bikes and enjoyed riding. Loved the small amount of traffic and how slow cars drove. Just GREAT! Thanks again for such an enjoyable vacation!

Property was clean and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

The open living area was perfect for our large family. The front porch and concrete pad under the house was a wonderful place for all to hang out to talk or play games. We ranged in ages from 2 to 60 and everyone had a great time. The pool is right next door and the walk to the beach was very manageable even for the 2year old. I would highly recommend this house and hope to visit again soon.

Best 4th of July ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time staying at Morgan's Escape. The house is so bright and comfortable. We love being right next to one of the community pools and just a short walk to the beach. The neighborhood is a great area for kids and adults. Lots to do and see. Its nice having the two convenience stores within one mile of the house. Sassy Bass is a nice restaurant and has a variety of items on the menu. Thanks to Jody, it was a great week. Hope to be back next year!

First time at the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be perfect for our family. It was roomy and comfortable. The house was clean and bright. Loved the decor! The house is a short walk to the beach and right next to one of the pools. We sat on the porch one afternoon when kids were at the pool but we didn't find it noisy. Small convenience stores within one mile of the house. Jody was terrific to deal with! We hope to be back again next year!!
