Bedrooms 2
Space 800 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage

CBTB is situated just 50’ from the waters of Mobile Bay. The house is perfect for small families, a group of friends, a couple, or just someone looking to get away from it all. Boater? Boat launch is 2 minute drive. Can’t get enough of white sandy beaches? The Gulf of Mexico is .75 miles away. Foodie? Walk across the street to The Beach Club, take a short drive to Sassy Bass or drive to Gulf Shores for an amazing range of places. License to chill? Stay at the cottage and enjoy incredible sunsets from the large deck that overlooks Mobile Bay, grill some dinner or enjoy your time on your own private sandy beach.

CBTB has recently been renovated. It is comfortable and updated, but still retains the old charm that only comes from a place that has been around for over five decades. The kitchen is open to the living room. The living room includes a large TV, a bed nook perfect for reading or naps, and full wall windows/patio doors to keep the view always close.

CBTB offers a chance to escape the daily grind. We spent almost a year living in the house, and we believe you will love it just as much as we have. Chuck & Julie

A beautiful and peaceful spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay. It was just the perfect size and the location is awesome. I saw one of the most beautiful sunsets that I have ever saw. I would highly recommend this place. The owners were very nice and welcoming. I can’t wait to make my way back there soon 😊?

We had a great week. The weather was nice. Saw lots of different birds and dolphin everyday but one. Was nice having our own little beach area.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at CBTB! It was adorable inside and out. Beds were comfy, kitchen was equipped with all that we needed, we loved the adorable reading nook, and we used the grill and hot tub on multiple occasions.

Although the weather was too windy to have a fire, it was nice knowing it was there if weather permitted. Julie was quick to respond to any questions I had, prior to and during our stay.

Thank you for allowing us to borrow your beautiful cottage for the week!

Fabulous place for our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2+ weeks at this bayside cottage near Fort Morgan. The views were wonderful & we thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, Julie & her adorable bull dog, Lily were the perfect hostesses! Fell in love with the area & bought a house so y'all can enjoy the bayside cottage.

Great location to unwind from the hustle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

Pictures on web site very accurate. Away from all the stress, traffic and cahos. Only thing you need to bring is sunscreen, they pretty much have everything else. Looking forward to going back.

Comfortable and Super-Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent only three nights at CBTB but the cottage is such a relaxing environment that it had seemed like we got away for twice as long. The beds are very comfortable, ensuring you get quality sleep. The hot tub below the deck is a perfect recharging station in the daytime and the evenings. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The wireless internet is plenty fast, and there's a large gas grill which we used to cookout one evening. We give it 5 stars because it's a great place that's clean, comfortable, quiet, and just a really good value for the price. We would love to come back some day.
