Cottages are available all year round. The following are some
excerpts from our guest books:

Great Escape!!!This was our first trip to this area from Chicago. So
quiet and beautiful it enchanted us. The locals and other visitors
were warm and welcoming. Lots of dogs frolicing at the beach. The
sunset was breathtaking. The Cotswold is perfect-Shawn has really
thought of everything.

I can't imagine a better place to have spent my birthday with all of
my friends and family surrounding me here at the cottage that is so
close to home, but once you're here it's a thousand miles away.
Thanks so much for the perfect getaway.

Our family of five, plus puppy, had a great week; Berry picking,
Timbertown playground and coffee at the Whistle Stop. What a
relaxing vacation.

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary for a week. The food was
superb-from the Blue Plate (banana French toast & watermelon
lemonade)to Miller's, (everything's great there). The antique
stores, golfing and winery tours kept us busy. The little blue
cottage was always welcoming us back each evening after returning
from our day's adventures.

Absolutely wonderful little getaway! Winter at the beach was
breathtaking. My husband and I will be back for a romantic weekend.

Thank you again for a wonderful week. We will be back soon.

traveler reviews for this lakeside cottage rental

Great Memorial Day weekend

Review submitted: May 27, 2014   Date of arrival: May 23, 2014

Rented both cottages for a party of five adults and a young child. Really lovely, just as described. Bathrooms could use a little updating but otherwise quite nice, and a very quick walk to the private beach. Also easy walk to Blue Plate Cafe for breakfast or lunch, and short drive to wineries, parks, antiques and more. Highly recommend. NOTE: if you are only renting one cottage try for the blue one. There was a boisterous large family next to the yellow cottage, where the pool and deck are VERY close to the cottage. A little noisy at times.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly

Couldn't wipe the smile off my face!

Review submitted: November 30, 2012   Date of arrival: November 16, 2012

I literally could not stop smiling from the moment we walked into the cottage. I felt so peaceful and so at home. This was a girls' weekend and we had so much fun I didn't even wait; While I was still there, I booked a week long getaway next Summer for my husband and our dog! The beach was just across the lane, and you could walk there in 2 minutes tops. The beach was pristine. I've never seen a cleaner beach. If you're looking for happiness, book the Cottage Provencal (blue cottage). There was a Swiss Bakery close by full of too many pastries, bread and goodies to list. They were delicious! We visited Sawyer Garden Center, which was stocked full of unique gifts and all the fresh, Christmas greenery you could ever want. A well~stocked grocery was also very close. It is not the small convenient store one would expect in a small communtiy, but had a very nice variety and many specialty items if you wanted to prepare a fine meal during your visit. The cottage has a full kitchen and an outdoor grill, so casual or not, you're set there, too. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linens were top notch. Another review mentioned the DVD and book collections. There was a great variety of both and I was told by the owner that they rotate their selection. I did not connect to the internet, but it was available. My friend used her laptop and had no problem. You could really tell that every detail was taken into consideration for your stay. I wanted for nothing. I can hardly wait for next Summer, so I can share the joy with my family. The Cottage (yellow one) next door is a mirror image to the Cottage Provencal (blue one), so if you want to bring a larger group, I suggest booking both. I'm already planning on a bigger family vacation instead of the Gulf Shores. Absolutely loved this place!
