|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Forget the high rises with elevators and extended hallways. Enhance your vacation and capture the perfect blend of nature and relaxation at the Rookery -- a small community of single/duplex cottages nestled in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge – 15 miles west of Gulf Shores at the 6 mile marker on Fort Morgan Road.
Park right by your cottage for easy, convenient access to your front door. Enjoy the on-site amenities: two saltwater pools ( the large pool has a zero entry for the little ones); a hot tub for the adults; a tennis court and a family grilling area. Or head to the white, sandy beach (0.4 miles) across the street and watch the dolphins swim. You can then relax and enjoy the sounds of nature on your screened-in front porch. If you're a web surfer the cottage has broadband internet access for your convenience.

Our family absolutely loved our stay in #1502! We had to make a last minute switch in vacation plans due to Hurricane Matthew, and we are so thankful that the switch led us here! It was our first trip to the Gulf Shores area and we have loved every minute! The Rookery is a special find - plenty of room for our family, great pool, & great beaches. We are already talking about our next visit! Thank you for giving us a wonderful week of memories!
We really enjoyed everything about this place. The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed/wanted. It was about a 1/4 mile from the public beach and had a nice swimming pool for the kids. It also came stocked with beach toys for the kids to use. I would highly recommend staying here. It is about 15 miles away from all of the action, but we enjoyed the more laid back area. It doesn't take that long to get to any activity that you're looking for.
The cottage was in a great location, quiet and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the pool and the overall experience. Public beach was just down the road. Thanks for a great family vacation!
Loved the property! Like the location! Pool was great, property was great over all enjoyed our time there. Only suggestions are the beds need to be replaced not comfortable and master bedroom only room without a tv. Would go back again.
This was so much fun. Everything was provided in the house. It was just the right size for our group of 7. The grandkids loved the beach, the pool and the roominess of the house. We even saw the alligator which lives in the preserve. We would highly recommend this house.
Everything about our stay at the Rookery was perfect! The pool, the cottage, the proximity to the beach. The cottage was very clean and well kept and had everything we needed. It was great to have a pool that was very kid friendly with the zero entry area. We highly recommend this place to any family wanting a relaxing family getaway!
Staying in the Rookery was the best part of our vacation. The cottage met all of our needs and was in the perfect location. Being across from the pool and a few minutes drive to the beach gave us plenty of options for fun in the sun. Our family took hikes in the wildlife refuge down the street and we even spent an afternoon at Fort Morgan.
The cottage itself was clean, quiet and spacious. The screened in porch was pleasant with ceiling fans and a view of the pond. Although everything we needed (including a full size washer & dryer) was in the cottage, we knew Ernie was close by if necessary.
We loved this place so much that my husband and I are considering purchasing a similar place in the next few years.
