It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just a 10 minute drive away. Want more?

The cottage is cute. and we had cool weather under the live oaks trees. resturants in the area are great, and at good prices.A nice place to relax or there is plenty to explore. Bike paths are across the street, and you can rent them if you don't have one.I t is always a breeze there.
I would move in if I could It's everything you want on a vacation. Morning coffee on the patio. Great sunrises and sunsets. Dog friendly. It was a little hard to find the driveway so I would suggest a better marker since it sets off the road. But then it's nice to be nesseled among the trees and private beach and dock. Can't say enough good things about this property will definitely be back
We absolutely loved the cottage. Great location. Secluded yet close to town. It's a great place to relax. We enjoyed watching the boats in the bay and trying to guess what they were catching!!! We will be back . Everything you need to stay is there a quick grocery store trip and you can cook just like at home. Thanks so much
Very nice, clean and well maintained cottage on the water, larger than it appears in the picture. The best part about this vacation rental was the outdoor space with lots of seating and tables. AND Relaxing and beautiful view. ALSO, great location! Resources (notebook) very helpful with ideas of restaurants, etc. We had four adults and a baby and 5 year old. Just right for us. Only drawback was that there was not enough space for "our stuff." When you have kids and pet, you must bring "stuff" so giving 4 stars instead of 5. Every space was taken up by an abundance of decor/accessories. All in all, a very good experience. I liked using paypal for payment. Quick deposit refund. We even visited the little zoo in town which was impressive for its size...don't miss the zoo. Many thanks for a great stay.
Wonderful pet friendly beach cottage with great views. Martha went out of her way to provide great customer service. Loved that you could walk out the door with pets, no steps. Clean and easy. Thanks, Terri
Just spent a great two weeks at Shady Acres. Perfect location, very relaxing. The cottage had everything you could ask for and more. Love the walking trail across the road, golf courses too. Hope to return. The fenced in area was great for our dog Hank!
Ft Morgan Road's unique character brings back memories of earlier days. Picturesque cottages from the 40's and 50's dot the north side of pristine Little Lagoon as they did when the area was a small fishing village. Close to town yet away from it all, you can enjoy the privacy of your own beach in this waterfront neighborhood as do some of its permenent residents.
