Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 4

Peaceful, river cabin just minutes to the beach. Enjoy the restful ambiance of this well decorated 2 bedroom 1 ½ bath cabin on Bon Secour River, newly on the rental market with new furniture. You can relax while viewing the river on the extended deck. Canoe up the river and return to a simpler life of floating and cruising under the live oaks in the provided canoe. Community pool just steps away and an on premise boat ramp, so bring your boat. You can fish for dinner right from your deck, clean your catch in the outside sink/cleaning station then cook your dinner on the charcoal grill. Just a few minutes to Gulf Shores Parkway with all the activities ( go carts, putt putt, water park and amusement park, etc.) and restaurants. Shopping galore…close to Tanger Outlet and the shops of Pelican place. Orange Beach is tops for deep sea and inshore fishing with para sail and dolphin cruses too. You can leave the crowds behind and return to paradise on the river with turtles, dolphins, cranes, herons, pelicans, seagulls, ducks, and abundant wildlife to view. Enjoy the best of all worlds here on the Alabama Gulf coast. Peaceful quite family atmosphere but, just minutes away are a Water park, putt putt, go carts tracks and an amusement park. The beach is only a few minutes’ drive with the Hang Out available to eat and play. The world famous bar Florabama is just a short drive to get your groove on and party the night away. There are fabulous shopping, restaurants and a movie theater at the Wharf with a huge Farris wheel for amazing views. Check out the concert schedule at the amphitheater for great music events. Festivals abound in this area. It seems there is always a festival going on here or close by i.e. Hangout music fest, Shrimp fest, strawberry festival, sausage festival and the Hot air balloon festival (always on Father’s Day) just to name a few. Marti graus is a month long event here in the Mobile area (only 50 minute drive) with parades almost every day and even here on the river is a boat parade floating right by our complex.

We have a newly build fish and farmers market in Foley on Friday and Saturdays but you can always get great fresh produce at Braxton’s in Robertsdale. We are right in the middle of the harbors for our shrimp boat fleet so very close by your will find the freshest shrimp and seafood right off the boats….visit Aquilla, Bon Secour Fisheries, Billy’s, Joe the shrimp man or Safe Harbor. We have great, close by, grocery stores Publix and Winn Dixie with a brand new Rouse’s in Gulf Shores.

If it should dare rain we have a movie theater close by and a bowling alley in Folly also.

You would be hard pressed to eat at all the restaurants we have in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. We have provided a list of restaurants with websites for more information in the cabin. Close by and not on the beaten path is the Tin Top restaurant with a quaint outside oyster bar and with music seasonally. Also don’t forget to get to Jesse’s in Magnolia Springs – winner of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association Gulf Coast Fiery Four steak contest. King Neptue’s has been featured in Coastal Living as one of our favorite seafood dives.

Schedule your deep sea or inshore fishing trips in Orange Beach or dolphin cruise, parasail trips, zip line and helicopter rides too. The Blue Angels are flying again in Pensacola so you don’t want to miss that.

All that and more are available to you but the best part is you have all the peace and relaxing you can handle here on the river to come back to. Bon Secour river is brackish so perfect for speckled trout and redfish. You can always cast net for mullet if you choose. We have crab, turtles and more varieties of birds than you can count. The boat ramp is just steps from your door or the community pool is only a short stroll in the other direction. So much to do or you can do nothing at all and watch the tide come in and go out while the sun sets on your perfect vacation.

Perfect and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here. Will definitely will come back. Best part was drinking coffee on the porch and watching the turtles. We have found our perfect vacation spot. Especially since we were able to bring our Yorkie with us. He also enjoyed watching the turtles. 😊

Just one little thing was the master bedroom was very hot. We just went buy a fan to use.

The property is wonderful. The surroundings serene & peaceful. Tastefully decorated & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Be sure to read the guest book! Everything about the property was as described but better. The check-in instructions were easy to follow and almost everything we needed was there. The place is comfortable and tastefully decorated. The kitchen has almost everything one needs...WalMart isn't far away for those things still needed. We left the few things we purchased, lg. plastic pitchers, plastic containers, and some staples. We also left other things that the next occupants might be able to use. It's that type of place, it feels like a relative lent it to you for your vacation.

Wonderful, peaceful river retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from a Thursday to a Monday. The property is so nice and peaceful. Close enough to the hustle of the beach but far enough that you can come back to relax from the busy day. The house was well stocked, clean, and cozy. The owners were great to work with and helped with anything we needed. Our favorite moment of the whole vacation was sitting on the back dock at sunset watching the wildlife. We hope to be able to come back sometime. Thank you so much for having us.

Nice property and good working with lance but terrible if you have a boat. You can't get a boat

  • 2 of 5

Very shallow and very far from the bay. Property is nice - just don't plan on using a boat.

Owner's Response: Glad you found the cabin to be nice. We take pride in providing a clean, comfortable place with great river views. As far as your boat: the launch is best suited for small vessels and kayaks. We like the peacefulness of smaller vessels and paddlers. Kayaking up the river is amazing. Should you ever return, I hope you will take time to experience the beauty of the river in a smaller craft!🚣🏾‍♀️🚣🏾‍♀️
