Amazing, cozy, hospitable!

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage is fantastic! Every detail has been handled incredibly well. Gina's communication prior and during our visit was clear and quick. She went the extra mile by stocking the kitchen with supplies I needed to cook for my child's food allergy. The environment is cozy and inviting. The setting is quiet and calm but a great location to our family and local amenities. A quick drive to the grocery and coffee! The only reason I chose 4 stars instead of 5 was the bed in the master bedroom. It was not "fluffy" and comfortable. The mattress is a bit stiff. The Cottage was a great place to stay for our trip. We will most likely return to stay when we visit our family in Enterprise.

What an awesome cottage. It had everything you would want or need for a week away from home.It was beautiful from the minute we walked in to the minute we walked out.It was immaculate.There was plenty of kitchen items bathroom items bedroom items , along with things like a record player , books and board games. I could go on and on. Our hosts , Darrin and Gina were wonderful.They came over to make sure all was well and dropped off some canoli's for us to enjoy. Thank You both for such a lovely visit.We will be back again.

Great house near Fort Rucker

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice while my son was at Fort Rucker. This cottage is a nice 3BR house with a fenced-in yard and everything you'll need while you visit. Costs the same as the local hotels but you get so much more. It is a really great place. Would absolutely stay here again if we ever need to be in Enterprise, AL. Thanks

Counldn't be better!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cottage at Fort Rucker last year and left a suggestion for improvement. We got there this year and found that they had not just taken our suggestion and put it to use...but those of everyone else who made little minor personal taste suggestions. The Cottage at Fort Rucker is just as comfortable as home, just as accommodating as having your own private concierge, cheerful, clean and perfect for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Having a repeat Guest is a unique opportunity to show how much we sincerely appreciate all of our guests as we truly do try to incorporate all suggestions! If we can make a trip away from home a little more comfortable, it's as good as done! We hope to see you next year!

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Should you choose to disregard property rules, such as no smoking, etc.; expect to be asked to vacate the property with no refund issued. Please know that disregard of any house rule noted after stay will also result in permanent ban from future stays.

If you have already been a guest at the cottage in the past, the security deposit may be waived if no issues were noted. Unfortunately, due to undesireable guests causing damage to the property and the fact the VRBO does not provide a rating of guests by owners to assist in weeding out problem guests, we now must require a security deposit.
