About Jennifer & Justin Watson

I'm a Retired Army Aviator and my wife and I settled down in Enterprise, AL. We spent many years as the extended guests of hotels during our military lives and enjoy now being hosts for others on their travels.

Why Jennifer & Justin Watson chose Enterprise

Private, close to Fort Rucker and all Enterprise amenities. No stairs to traverse, private backyard.

What makes this house unique

Just outside the Fort Rucker/ Enterprise gate. Great for those coming for military related events, quick access to Fort Rucker, short drive into Enterprise, Daleville. Just 20 minutes from Dothan and about an hour and a half from the Florida Emerald Coast.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect setting for our needs. We had family members arriving and leaving at different times which was easy to accommodate with the different sleeping arrangements. The beautifully decorated cottage was well equipped from the kitchen to the laundry to the fire pit - we throughly enjoyed our home away from home. Other nice touches included the music playing when we arrived and the snacks for us and the dog 😋 With our son graduating and moving to Ft. Bliss, TX, it was a blessing to have stayed at the cottage where we could be a family rather than being stuffed in a hotel... Thank you

Very cozy and comfortable! I would highly recommend staying at the cottage!! We will definitely be back again when we are visiting FT Rucker! It is just outside the Enterprise Gate. A perfect place to stay for WOC graduation!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We came for my husband’s flight school graduation at Ft. Rucker and wish we had known about this place for his first graduation. We had 4 adults, 2 kids, and a baby and it was perfect for us. Not too crowded and there are baby amenities (pack n play, high chair)! Owners have thought of everything as far as I can tell. Check in and out was super simple. Loved it! So much better than a hotel with the kids because they could go outside and play. Would 100% recommend!

Perfect setup for our 4 night stay

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our son's graduation from pilot training, so wanted something with more room than a hotel. The Cottage was fantastic! The property was in great shape, well designed and decorated, with lots of nice amenities. Location was perfect.

Six adults could sleep comfortably (we had four), with a pullout sofa for eight if you felt like being that cozy. Master bed was comfortable, there were plenty of linens, and a nice selection of toiletries. The snacks and water were a nice surprise after the 3 hour drive south from the Atlanta airport.

If we ever find ourselves back in the Ft Rucker area, this property will be on the top of the list of places to stay. Thanks for the excellent hospitality.
