Relaxing away from the beach

Review submitted: August 22, 2013   Date of arrival: August 9, 2013

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners 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

Review submitted: August 9, 2013   Date of arrival: July 7, 2013

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. :)

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

Owners 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

Review submitted: July 30, 2012   Date of arrival: July 14, 2012

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.
