Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 24, 2014
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Boarding the Fort Morgan National Wildlife Preserve, the Little House by the Bay is a perfect place to go and write a book, or just get away and let the world go by. Located on 2 acres, with 150 feet of water front on beautiful and historic Mobile Bay, this is a great place to watch the boats go by on the intercoastal, fish, crab or enjoy the nearby white sandy beaches. The location is secluded and very private, although high levels of activities are just a few minutes away.

A short drive just across highway 180 and you are on the beautiful white sandy public beaches adjacent to the National Wildlife Preserve. Enjoy the blue water and surf during the day and in just a few minutes, you are back at the Little House by the Bay.

The property includes a 130 foot pier to fish, crab and sunbath from. If you are a boater, you can moor your boat 150' off shore at mooring posts and wade in waste deep. By boat, you are justa 20 minute boat ride from Lulu Buffet's Bar and Grill and all the sites of Gulf Shores. Futher to the East on the intercoastal, and you are at Orange Beach and Perdido Pass.

A 16 mile boat ride to the West will put you at Fort Morgan and the Mouth of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A bit further West and you are at Dauphin Island. Some of the best in-shore and off-shore fishing and crabbing are right at your finger tips.

The Little House by the Bay is a 1,000 square foot cottage with a large great room (den kitchen) and a very large bedroom with a king size bed, and a bunk bed. The couch is also comfortable and blow up mattresses can be put in the den. There is bed sleeping for 4, and room a for a few others. The House has been recently refurbished inside and out and is nicely appointed, with very fine furnishings and all the modern amenities.

The perfect place for our family!

My husband and I have two children and a dog and this place was perfect! Clean, spacious, great yard, and right on the water. The dock is perfect for fishing and watching some beautiful sunsets. Close to activities in Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan.

Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
Great, very clean, little house with everything you need for a great vacation. The bikes were a great addition as the trails are nearby. The bed and furniture were very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. We appreciated being able to bring our dogs and the location is very peaceful.

The Best Vacation in Years

  • 5 of 5
The little house by the bay is all it claims to be and more. Nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. The photos posted dont do it justice. The screened porch is most enjoyable. The owners were extremely courteous and attentive. I would most definitely recommend this property. A little off the beaten path and private.

Truly as stated; a beautiful, relaxing cottage--peaceful and quiet!

  • 4 of 5
Our stay was fantastic...and greatly needed! Plus, our son and his family were in a cottage owned you his brother-in-law less than a mile away. The listing is accurate in all regards. The cottage and grounds are well-maintained and clean. We had the meal of a lifetime at the Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores and plenty of good food at "our place" and with our son & his family. Our only problem was the TV. It is very complex and extremely hard to figure out...in fact grandson Edmund, an "electronics genius" was stumped by it. Otherwise, a virtually perfect stay. We plan on returning SOON!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. I am sorry about the complexity of the TV and Direct TV set-up. It's confusing when you have to use 3 remote controls! We are taking care of that this week and upgrading to a new digital Flat Screen TV that will work with only 1 remote!
