Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage

CBTB is situated just 50’ from the waters of Mobile Bay. The house is perfect for small families, a group of friends, a couple, or just someone looking to get away from it all. Boater? Boat launch is 2 minute drive. Can’t get enough of white sandy beaches? The Gulf of Mexico is .75 miles away. Foodie? Walk across the street to The Beach Club, take a short drive to Sassy Bass or drive to Gulf Shores for an amazing range of places. License to chill? Stay at the cottage and enjoy incredible sunsets from the large deck that overlooks Mobile Bay, grill some dinner or enjoy your time on your own private sandy beach.

CBTB has recently been renovated. It is comfortable and updated, but still retains the old charm that only comes from a place that has been around for over five decades. The kitchen is open to the living room. The living room includes a large TV, a bed nook perfect for reading or naps, and full wall windows/patio doors to keep the view always close.

CBTB offers a chance to escape the daily grind. We spent almost a year living in the house, and we believe you will love it just as much as we have. Chuck & Julie

Comfortable and Super-Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent only three nights at CBTB but the cottage is such a relaxing environment that it had seemed like we got away for twice as long. The beds are very comfortable, ensuring you get quality sleep. The hot tub below the deck is a perfect recharging station in the daytime and the evenings. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The wireless internet is plenty fast, and there's a large gas grill which we used to cookout one evening. We give it 5 stars because it's a great place that's clean, comfortable, quiet, and just a really good value for the price. We would love to come back some day.

Very cute, very quaint, very clean. Loved that the kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes, etc.

  • 5 of 5

The view was very pretty. It was peaceful. Bars and restaurants were a few miles away, but we were ok with that. We were there for relaxation. Only real downfall was having to drive to the beach, but even that was only just down the road and not a problem for us. Loved the deck and pier. Had dolphins swim by a few different days and some different birds hanging around. Really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect home for a peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at CBTB!! The house had everything we needed...comfortable beds, great kitchen, laundry, etc. Everything was clean and welcoming. The reading nook was a favorite spot! We couldn't get enough of the sunset views over the bay. We enjoyed the fire pit and seeing dolphins!! Our kids had fun playing in the sand by the dock. Everything was beautiful and peaceful and relaxing...away from the crowds. If you are considering staying here, DO IT! You won't regret it :-) We would love to come back!

Breathtaking views, peaceful, absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a relaxing vacation this is the place to stay! Our family of 5, with kids, 14,12 and 9, had the most fantastic time! Swimming at the public beach down the road, relaxing in the hot tub, or just sitting on the pier watching the spectacular dolphin show everyday. We enjoyed every second. Even on a rainy day, the cottage is so comfortable we enjoyed our time indoors too. Of course having a visit from the owners sweet pup from time to time was an added bonus!

Very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a vacation with an awesome view of the bay! The only downside was knowing we had to leave so soon. My wife and I will definitely go back when we have the chance.
