Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom (Sleeps 6)

Location cannot be matched! Located central to all Fairhope attractions yet with the feel of home, this Fairhope cottage begins by allowing guests to enjoy Fairhope from its front steps. Fairhope Avenue has the shops, historic homes, Fairhope pier and parks, guests will find this beautiful cottage is directly in the middle of it all.

This cottage has been identified and badged with a Baldwin County historic marker and the feel of a bygone era is in it air. Guests enjoy sitting and relaxing on the front porch and taking it all in. The cottage is well furnished from the kitchen to the bedrooms and baths. Guests enjoy having a fully equipped kitchen for cooking but many restaurants are within an easy stroll in both directions on Fairhope Avenue.

While we highlight our location, it is ultimately important to us that we offer an extremely clean and well-maintained cottage, and we want to assure anyone looking you will be impressed.

It would by our honor to have you as our next guest and for many years to come.

About Patty Edhegard

We are a local family from right here in Fairhope and have made hospitality our lifelong endeavor. This is the first property of this format we've owned but have 30 years of experience with accommodating vacationers whether on the Bayous of Louisiana, the slopes of Colorado, or the suburban scene.

We do our utmost to support ourselves by making others feel welcome. If there's ever something we can do to make your stay more enjoyable or comfortable we'll happily do so. We look forward to your staying at the property we've poured our souls and tireless efforts into making cozy and clean for you.

Patty Edhegard purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Patty Edhegard chose Alabama Gulf Coast

This property interested us in the Summer of 2012 because we'd recently left the world of small business and had always been curious about the world of vacation rental. Vacation rentals of this nature attract different demographic than we've ever before serviced at the various motels we've run in years past.

Simply, we needed something that's less of a full-time job than we'd had managing multi-unit facilities. It is now a privilege to own a property of which we are so proud because, we believe, it's the best thing available for rent in the whole darn town.

What makes this cottage unique

Location handy to Robert Trent Golf Trail and Beaches! Nestled in the Quaint town of Fairhope in close proximity to walking, biking, sailing, boating, coffee

shops, antique shops, outdoor cafes. Also, within a 30-40 min driving distance is the new OWA Theme Park which boasts 21 exciting rides and musical entertainment venues and within an hour drive to the Biloxi Casinos.

Comfortable cottage in the perfect downtown Fairhope location

  • 5 of 5

Imagine being able to walk to all in town spots, not just "close by" but within a couple of blocks. Location couldn't be any better.

Perfectly prepped house, too. Very clean and comfortable.

The owner was very friendly and helpful. We only wish we could have extended our stay a bit longer than we reserved, but it was already booked, of course!

This will be our first choice next time we come to Fairhope.

Great little cottage on Fairhope Avenue, just a couple blocks from shopping and restaurants or the Pier. My two sisters and I stayed here for our annual sister's trip. Fairhope is a lovely little town & this cottage is a perfect location. We were able to walk into downtown & there is great walking trail minutes away that follows the shoreline of Mobile Bay. The cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and an adequate kitchen. It would work for a family, couples, or girls trip.

The condo was very clean and the place was very peaceful. Patty is an awesome host. She and her husband were so friendly with us. Thanks for your suggestions for places to visit sir :) I would go back to the same condo if I were to travel to beach areas😁

When seeking a destination, one would be extremely hard-pressed to find a town offering a better mix of , rich historical culture, and southern charm and hospitality than what the beautiful city of Fairhope offers. What makes Fairhope so unique is its juxtaposition between the rich culture centers of New Orleans and Mobile, and the sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores and Pensacola. Most would say, however, that it isn't the beach scene that makes Fairhope's attraction so compelling. It stems more from its rich culture that really cannot be found anywhere else. Though many have compared Fairhope to New Orleans, Fairhope, extraordinarily has developed its own very own distinct culture -- an amazing social circumstance from a town that has just in the last two decades reached a population greater than 10,000 permanent residents.

This small cottage is a perfect property to exemplify Fairhope charm.
