From the time my family closed the door to travel back home I was thinking about writing this. This was the remedy that I needed the cottage was beautiful felt like home and thats how we treated it. Took my kids crabbing for the first time and we caught 4 and they loved it. Had a seafood boil thanks to the Good people at Aquila Seafood. Was still in close distance to every beach and outlet . I over slept every day which was great:). My family is already asking me to reserve the cottage for next year World Series and i agree .... This was a very very Great week for my family and I . Thanks again Mrs. Lynn :) Bon Secour will see us every year.....

Owner's Response: I'm so happy when guests have a memorable and fun vacation at my cottage. I like to think back on vacations spent with my parents and family when I was young and times spent with my children on vacation when they were young. Nothing or no one can take away those memories! I'm very happy that my cottage and pier can be part of a great memory for this family. I do hope they are able to return. Many guests who come to visit come back again. I guess that says a lot about their satisfaction.

The Perfect Vacation Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week in this lovely cottage and it could not have been a better week. The little cottage is plenty roomy, very comfy, has absolutely everything you need. The pier is a short walk from the cottage and is shared with the other cottages in the little neighborhood but absolutely no one seems to use it. It felt like it was our private pier! We fished off the pier, caught crabs in the trap off the pier, and sat on the swing and enjoyed watching the shrimp boats leave each morning and return each evening. There is nothing that could be done to improve this already perfect vacation spot! The little neighborhood of cottages is extremely quiet and everyone is very friendly. (Also one of my favorite things we did in the area was a tour of the Swift/Coles historical home in Bon Secour. Be sure to add that to your list of things to see and do.)

Relaxing away from the beach

  • 5 of 5
Pictures don't do this place justice for sure. It's a lot larger than than the pictures make it seem. Very clean and quite. Bon secour is the perfect place to get away from it all. The cottage is well stocked with everything you need. We bought some fresh fish from the open air fish market at the end of the road and we had everything we needed to prepare a great meal. It's obvious all linens are cleaned everytime. My wife and I enjoyed running cycling and coffee on the pier. We spent two solid days on the beach which is less than 10 minutes away. I highly recommend this cottage.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to share my piece of paradise with others. It's my favorite place to be! I'm not able to use my cottage as much as I'd like to, so I'm glad visitors can enjoy it. Everyone who visits falls in love with Bon Secour and my cottage. This makes me happy!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
This was a epic vacation not only was this place 5 star but also like home with everything you need in the kitchen to fresh clean towels in the bathroom. Lynn has a little piece of heaven here made me home sick for the place as soonm as I left. Right ascross the street is a dock you can crab fish and fish off the locals are friendly and always willing to chat. Yet the main thing I loved was being so close to Gulf shores Beach OMG I was in love with thier beach clean white sand and clear water perfect for snorkling. The kids enjoyed Boogie Borading on the waves as well. We were able to get a whole box of sea shells for those of you like me that love to hunt for the perfect sea shell. Got to see some cool fish while we were thereas well. If you want to relax and live the lazy life this is the place everything is on its own time and all i can say is Im coming back and this will be the only place i can think of staying. :)

Owner's Response: I agree that Gulf Shores beaches are some of the prettiest on the Gulf of Mexico! My cottage in nearby Bon Secour is a great getaway after a busy day at the beach. The quiet area, the chance to relax or fish on the pier, viewing water foul and dolphins on and in the river, and watching the shrimp boats come and go from local fisheries adds charm to a south Alabama vacation. It's the best of both worlds!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
Let me tell you if you are looking for a great place to relax and have quite time this is the place. This was an excellent spot for my Family and I to stay for a week. It is in a great location you are really ten minutes away from everything that you would need. The house is great and is very open and alot of space. I recommend this place to anyone.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay! There were 6 of us in our group, and there was plenty of room. The beds are all very comfortable. We cooked breakfast & supper each day at the house, it is fully equipped with everything you will need. Has wi-fi, Satellite TV, washer/dryer, iron & ironing board. Even a cake mixer and blender. We enjoyed our morning visits to the swing on the pier across the street. Great place to enjoy morning coffee. Only minutes away from the beach & hustle & bustle of Gulf Shores. We would definitely recommend this cottage, and hope we can return in the future!

Owner's Response: A "Quiet Getaway" is the perfect description! It's just right for those wanting the convenience of driving to the nearby Gulf beach, yet enjoy the peace and quiet of the river.

Location

Activity and Interests

This is located about 10 miles north of Gulf Shores and about 10 minutes south of Tanger Outlet Mall. You can enjoy the surrounding areas which offer watersports, deep sea fishing, golfing, fine dining, and the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores. Or, just "stay at home" on the quiet Bon Secour River, go fishing, go boating, and enjoy a beautiful sunset from the pier swing.

If you visit in the fall, plan on attending the Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival or one of the many other nearby festivals. Celebrate Christmas by attending a Gulf Shores Christmas parade. You can also attend Mardi Gras parades if you decide to visit then.
