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

Beautiful, Peaceful, Relaxing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and 4 children did a little short 3 day vacation to this property. I must say it was one of the most enjoyable getaways that our family has done. The house is clean, comfortable, cozy and has amazing views, especially sunrise and sunsets! At the house you will find everything thing you need for just hanging out and cooking or trips to the beach, which is definitely a plus. The owner is very nice, friendly and helpful. My wife and children loved her friendly bulldog Lily Rose, who really adds to the home like feel of the property! If you are looking for a perfect little getaway paradise, this is it. We will definitely be returning!

Spectacularly Incredible View

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has everything you need- except food. There are a few shops close by- liquor, gas, small grocery store, and family dollar. If you need anything else- drive to Walmart or Rouses. It's rather private and quiet- which was exactly what we wanted. Driving to the beach was not an issue as there are several private (but public) beach areas on Fort Morgan Road. Honestly, the view, made leaving the house an absolute chore. We didn't want to leave the cottage. We saw dolphins, pelicans, heron, seagulls, and fish jumping almost daily. The sunsets here- are absolutely gorgeous. A picture cannot capture the beauty seen with your eyes. It's stunning. The cottage was big enough for my family of 3 and my small dog. The hot tub is extravagant and the view from it- is too. The outside shower was amazing. We really enjoyed this place. We only had one "complaint". The flies/gnats/pests that are in the area are rather annoying. But that's not the owner's fault. It's nature. The cottage is close to the ferry- and the drive to it is absolutely peaceful. We had a wonderful time. If you don't stay here- youre missing out.

We had such a nice stay. It was just the perfect size and the location is awesome. I saw one of the most beautiful sunsets that I have ever saw. I would highly recommend this place. The owners were very nice and welcoming. I can’t wait to make my way back there soon 😊?

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at CBTB! It was adorable inside and out. Beds were comfy, kitchen was equipped with all that we needed, we loved the adorable reading nook, and we used the grill and hot tub on multiple occasions.

Although the weather was too windy to have a fire, it was nice knowing it was there if weather permitted. Julie was quick to respond to any questions I had, prior to and during our stay.

Thank you for allowing us to borrow your beautiful cottage for the week!

Fabulous place for our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2+ weeks at this bayside cottage near Fort Morgan. The views were wonderful & we thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, Julie & her adorable bull dog, Lily were the perfect hostesses! Fell in love with the area & bought a house so y'all can enjoy the bayside cottage.
