Nice area

Location was great. House was very comfortable and clean. The pool was awesome!

We loved it.

We had a great time. Very cute place to stay. Little bit of a drive to everything but that was fine. The queen bed was very uncomfortable. But besides that I would stay here again.

Perfect spot from which to explore Fort Morgan

This is the second time we've stayed at this location. We love its proximity to the beach, to the Fort, and to Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. The kids love the community pool. The cottage is well appointed, with enough space to spread out (important to my kids now that they're in the teen and pre-teen ages). The owner is very accommodating - I called with a question and he was able to answer my call right away. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking to enjoy the area without the chaos of staying in Gulf Shores proper.

Lovely cottage

Tucked away in a quiet, peaceful Fort Morgan community, this cottage at The Rookery is a gem. Beautifully appointed, fully stocked kitchen, a wonderful screened-in porch adjacent to a wildlife refuge. The most relaxing stay at the beach my family has ever experienced.
