Property Description 2 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, handicap, not wheel chair accessible, sleeps 4 max
This little cabin is an original Bay cabin that has been well cared for. It is full of original artwork and photographs, many done by our local Gulf Coast artists. The property is located on Bon Secour Bay which is across the street ( .5 mi) from the beautiful sugar sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico. It is the only dog friendly beach on the Fort Morgan Peninsula. Well behaved, leashed dogs, with responsible owners are welcome! We are 10 miles from downtown Gulf Shores, where you can find a zoo, amusement parks, live music, tons of restaurants, miniature golf, souvenir shops, etc. There is also an outlet center nearby in Foley if you want to shop! A boat ramp is just up the road to put in your small boat or jetski. Or put your kyack in right over the sea wall! There is a kayak rental place down the street which will deliver.
The washer and dryer are located up in the shed with beach chairs and toys. The cottage has a large screened porch with a large picnic table. It is the perfect place to pick some crabs and shell some peas, and watch the kids try to catch fish or crabs on the pier in the shallow waters of the bay. If you are looking for an old fashioned beach vacation, near attractions, but off the beaten, this is the place for you to unwind after a day at the beach. Hang your towels on the clothesline, rinse off under the outdoor shower, then relax under the ceiling fan on the porch which is shaded with trees laden with Spanish moss. The cottage also has a bunk room just off the porch, but it is not heated or air-conditioned. Just a perfect romantic getaway or for an affordable small family vacation.
Family owned property since the 1950's: I purchased this property from my mom in 2004. My stepdad was a professor at University of Alabama built 'the cabin' when he wasn't fishing! In 2005 I put a new roof on it, updated electric, put in a heat pump, and covered it with hardiplank. Although it still retains its charm, it is more energy efficient! Two flat screen tv's. As of January 2019 the cabin has new countertops, new tile floor, and a fresh coat of paint.
