Darling Vacation Cottage on Gulf Shores

Sleeping Accommodations: 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Bedding Information: Sleeps 8

Cottages at the Rookery are located across the street from Gulf Shores beaches. It’s a 0.4 miles walk to the beach. The development has a beautiful large pool and an outdoor Jacuzzi.
The cottage has been decorated with care and love and will be clean and fresh when you arrive. This is a perfect Gulf Shores vacation rental. It is located at mile marker 6, which is 17 miles down Fort Morgan Road from Gulf Shores. Two of the bedrooms feature queen size beds and the third bedroom has twin beds. The living room sofa makes a queen size bed. There is a full kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and ice maker. There is a washer and dryer.
There is cable TV and wireless Internet. The Rookery was designed to be a natural and quiet resort and is located adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. There are several golf courses near by and this unit is 17 miles from all the activities of Gulf Shores, but without any of the traffic, noise and construction after the hurricane. A marina, boat dock and restaurant are located nearby. Alabama’s Gulf Shores Coast offers a wonderful variety of inshore and offshore saltwater fishing. Go after elusive blue marlin, yellow fin tuna, amberjack, cobia, red snapper and more!
Driving west from Gulf Shores along Fort Morgan Road brings you by scenic Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, a haven for nature lovers. You can find a secluded stretch of coast via a long boardwalk for easy wheelchair access. At the end of this peninsula, Fort Morgan stands guard to the mouth of Mobile Bay along with its sister, Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island, a ferry-ride away. Explore both forts and relive the Battle of Mobile Bay, where Confederate and Union forces fought for control of the Port City. While on Dauphin Island, be sure to visit the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

March 27, 2008 Vicki The Rookery - Unit 1202
My family really enjoyed this cottage and out of the fast pace of Gluf Shores but close enough for the enjoyment of restaurants and stores. The pool and jacuzzi is behind the cottage of which is very convenient and everything is clean. Very family oriented. We will stay there again if we go to Ft Morgan or Gulf Shores again.
