Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6, Pool Access, Near Gulf, Gulf Shores

Welcome to our charming coastal cottage "Rookery Cottage". This charming beach cottage is offered at at great price for families.

Sit on your screen porch at the back of the cottage and watch the kids enjoy the pool! It's like having a pool in your backyard. We are the closest cottage to the Zero-Entry Pool! Little ones and their parents love the zero-entry pool. Plus, there's a 2nd pool near the entrance to Rookery III, you can walk to that pool as well.

We invite you to experience the quieter side of Gulf Shores, Alabama. As you drive along Ft Morgan Rd, feel your cares slip away. You'll love the beaches which are less crowded. Our guests love the individual cottages with convenient parking for 2 cars just outside the cottage front door.

Rookery Cottage features 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and living area which includes kitchen, dining area and living room which are open to each other.

The cottage is located in the tranquil coastal cottage community called Rookery III. Rookery is part of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge in historic Fort Morgan, Alabama.

The soft white sugar sand beaches and gorgeous water of the Gulf of Mexico are just 7/10ths of a mile from the cottage. Our guests can either walk or drive to the beach, whichever they decide.

While Ft Morgan is near the activities and action of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Al, Fort Morgan is "the road less travelled" - quieter, more private, with sugar sand beaches that are less crowded than the other beach communities in lower Alabama.

Rookery Cottage is an ideal vacation home for those who are ready to unplug from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Immerse yourself in life's simple pleasures again. Enjoy a hike on a wildlife trail, or go bird watching, there's also a morning run, walk and/or shelling on the beach, a swim in the revitalizing waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a paddleboard excursion, kayaking, bike riding, swimming laps in the adult pool, watch the kids enjoy the Zero-entry pool just behind the cottage, grill on the back deck, make popcorn and enjoy movie or game night at the cottage. There's no shortage of things to do. Watersports rentals, bike rentals and such are available along Ft Morgan Rd, or please feel free to bring your own.
