Thank you Deborah and Frank for offering this quiet and quite beautiful cottage! From our initial email communication to our arrival and departure, you were gracious. We attended a wedding in Fairhope at Saint Francis at the Point Church with a reception at the Marina and could not have been situated any better.........in the middle of the two venues.

The cottage was comfortable and clean and we truly hated to leave.

Frank recalled a conversation where we let him know I was from Missouri and attended Mizzou. After we returned home, Frank mailed to us a kind letter and inside was a Mizzou football momento he had come across from 1942!!! What a kind gesture and a souvenir I was so happy to add to my collection!

Thank you again Deborah and Frank and we so look forward to a return stay at Surprise Landing!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are lucky to be so conveniently located for folks needing to get around in our area. And we are blessed to have visitors who we can make feel welcome. I am delighted you liked the rather historic Mizzou pin; we kind of thought you would.

The perfect Surprise Landing!

  • 5 of 5
Frank and Deborah certainly know how to keep their guests coming back. I love clean and cozy, and my husband loves to fish. We were both very happy to find this little piece of heaven in Fairhope. The cottage has everything you could ever need for a comfortable stay. I packed coffee filters, laundry detergent, and Kleenex boxes, just in case, but everything was already there. There was even yummy cheese sticks and a bottle of wine on the table to welcome us. My husband caught a 23" Speckled Trout off the wharf, after a very heavy rain (didn't have anything to weigh the fish with), and that made the trip! Frank was elated. There is not a better place to stay in Fairhope. The owners are the nicest and most impressive couple. I only wish we could have had more time to get to know them better. We hope they have us again, the next time we visit Fairhope. Tim and Anna

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. You hit on two of our main themes. First, we are almost fanatic about presenting our guests with a, "white glove" clean property. Second, we both do have as good a time as they do, when our guests have an opportunity to really enjoy the water. On that note, I can tell you that your skill in landing those fine Speckled Trout you caught right off the pier has put a bunch of our local fisher folk (including me) to shame.

The cottage is well equipped, well maintained and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the privilege of using the pier. Watching the birds and sunsets across the bay was a treat!
This is our fourth stay here and each time is as enjoyable as the last. Thanks Deborah and Frank.

Owner's Response: Thank you Connie and Charlie. It was good to have you back and fun to catch up on each other's news. We keep hoping you will find that perfect, irresistible spot down our way and become neighbors. Just keep thinking "Fairhope" when you have to get out the snow shovels.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Surprise Landing cottage and the property that it is on are truly beautiful! The owners, Deborah and Frank, have supplied everything you need to have a restful, peaceful holiday. The cottage itself is outfitted in the most attractive way, and the high ceilings and tall French doors give it an added feeling of spaciousness, opening to the scenic outdoors. Their private pier was available for our use, and we were allowed to have family that we were visiting to spend time with us there. We will be very disappointed if we couldn't stay at this great place during our next visit to the lovely Fairhope area! Thank you, again, Deborah and Frank, for all that you do to make your guests feel so comfortable! Surprise Landing is really a very special treasure!

A Surprise Indeed

What a great find this was! The grounds on this property are beautiful with wonderful huge trees. You'll know you made the right choice when you start down the driveway. The cottage is small but extremely well done. We caught cold, rainy weather during our short winter stay but didn't mind because the cottage was so comfortable. Access to their nice pier is also a plus.

Cozy Cottage

Our week long stay at Surprise Landing was delightful. Days were busy visiting family and friends and it was wonderful to come back to the relaxing environment of the cottage. Walks along the bay were enjoyable. The cottage is well equipped, well maintained and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the privilege of using the pier. Watching the birds and sunsets across the bay was a treat! Frank and Deborah are gracious hosts.
