Shoot the Moon at the Rookery

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful! The location was close to the beach and we had two golf carts available for our use. This is a family friendly property with a clean, well maintained pool and hot tub, both very close to our cottage. The property was quiet and very safe. There are beach umbrellas and chairs for use and a charcoal grill which we used. There is internet access and television. Board games were available for use, however pieces are missing so we would recommend bringing your own. Fort Morgan and the ferry are less than five miles down the road. Safe to walk/jog around the area. The property manager was helpful and readily available. We had a wonderful time and hope to return to this property!

Very relaxing vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome cottage!!!!

House was very clean and had everything we needed for stay. Loved the two golf carts, fire pit and BBQ grill. Just steps away from pool and the beach was not too crowded and easy access with golf carts. Most relaxing trip I have had to beach in a long time😃

One note: If you plan to hang out around pool or fire pit at night wear bugspray. The mosquitoes will carry you off!!!!!

Also nearest store that doesn't cost and arm and a leg is 14 miles away(Dollar General). Sassy Bass market is .5 mile away but their prices are sky high!!!!!!

Really hope we can stay here again next summer🌴😎😎🌴

It had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This was a stand alone house and it was clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need. All the towels and linens were there as promised. Two full bathrooms, so the kids shared one and we had our own off the master bedroom. We had two golf carts to use for going to the beach, which was not far at all. The pool was a salt water pool, not chlorine. There was a hot tub. The house had a grill, which the grates were a little rusty, we laid down foil. It was great to grill seafood when we wanted to. The Sassy Bass was a convenient grocery store just a half mile down the road. It took about 30 minutes on average to get to Gulf Shores...but I liked the relative seclusion. We used the washer/dryer a few times, so we were not packing clothes for the whole week.

We got hit with tropical storm Cindy while we were there, so we only swam in the Gulf once but it didn't really matter with a pool at our disposal.

It was in the 80-90's most days with 80% humidity and the house A/C held up great.

Fort Morgan and Bon Secour Park were within easy driving distance and I enjoyed both. We saw dolphins off the beach by Fort Morgan and watched a fisherman reel in a shark.

There were tv's and cable but we did not really watch too much. The kids played the xbox. There was a selection of board games as well.

Way better than a hotel and I would stay again.

Theresa gave me all the info I needed to find and get in the house.

Relaxing stay at beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Rookery in Fort Morgan. We traveled with my parents and 4 children ranging in ages from 3-12.

The house was clean and very well appointed. We cooked most of our meals at home and the owner had everything we needed. They provided a nice selection of games and movies for rainy days.

The pool was only steps away and has a graduated beach entrance which is great for small children. They had it heated which made it possible for us to swim (even when the night temps dropped).

Two golf carts were provided for beach transport which was so helpful. We could have walked, but it was much easier to take the carts with the kids and older parents.

We enjoyed seeing the fort at Fort Morgan and also hiked in the nearby nature refuge. The outlet stores and restraunts of Orange Beach were about a 25 minute drive.

The only downside to the area is the bugs which were bothersome a few mornings and evenings on our trip. We brought bug spray (and the owner had also set some out) which helped.

My youngest's favorite part of the trip was playing in the front yard which is all sand (like a giant sandbox) under the palm trees. We would definitely return to this rental.

Relaxed and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in very nice condition. It was nice to be away from the busy downtown yet close enough to drive in anytime. The golf cart was great to get to the ocean. We will come back again for sure!
