Beautiful & Relaxing - Waterfront Cottage 6 Mi. from Gulf Shores - Fort Morgan

**The house's pier was damaged during Hurricane Sally, but should be fixed by March 2021.**

Bordering the Fort Morgan National Wildlife Preserve, the Little House by the Bay is a perfect place to relax, get away, and just let the world go by. Located on 2 acres, with 150 feet of waterfront on beautiful and historic Mobile Bay. This is a great place to fish, crab, or enjoy the nearby white sandy beaches. The location is secluded and very private, although high levels of activities are just a few minutes away.

A short drive across highway 180 and you are on the beautiful white sandy public beaches adjacent to the National Wildlife Preserve. Enjoy the blue water and surf during the day, and in just a few minutes, you are back at the Little House by the Bay.

The property includes a 130-foot pier to fish, crab and sunbathe. If you are a boater, you can moor your boat 150' offshore at mooring posts and wade in waist-deep. By boat, you are just a 20-minute boat ride from Lulu Buffet's Bar and Grill and all the sites of Gulf Shores. Further to the East on the intercoastal, and you are at Orange Beach and Perdido Pass.

A 16-mile boat ride to the West will put you at Fort Morgan and the Mouth of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A bit further West and you are at Dauphin Island. Some of the best in-shore and off-shore fishing and crabbing are right at your fingertips.

The Little House by the Bay is a 1,000 square foot cottage with a large great room (den kitchen) and a very large bedroom with a king-size bed, a twin bed, and a bunk bed. The couch is also comfortable and blow up mattresses can be put in the den. There is bed sleeping for 5, and room a for a few others. The house has been recently refurbished inside and out and is nicely appointed, with fine furnishings and all the modern amenities.

Leave your stress behind and immerse yourself in unparalleled relaxation at the Little House by the Bay!

Amazing Little Fishing Cottage    Oct 21, 2018

review star

My husband and I, along with our two small dogs, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The little house, is a very comfortable and inviting home. It has lots of character and charm! The fishing was truly amazing! We caught lots of trout and even an occasional sting ray. It was very private and peaceful. It was just a short drive into Gulf Shores for dining and shopping. The owners were very accommodating! It was nice dealing directly with the owners, as opposed to some large rental agency. We would highly recommend this little vacation spot and look forward to returning again for another stay!

Great home stocked with all the conveniences of home! We enjoyed fishing from the private dock and watching beautiful sunsets over the bay!! So close to the beach and ocean. Loads of privacy! Great seafood nearby. We plan to return! Cute cabin!!

First Family vacation with our little one.    Sep 19, 2018

Our stay was absolutely amazing! We had a tropical storm come through during our stay and Don and Kay made us feel very safe through their emails and phone call. I couldn't thank them enough for communicating with us. Every morning we went out on the dock and fished/watched for dolphins. The views were beautiful. The seclusion from town/traffic of downtown was perfect. Our little guy loved playing in the yard. The house was well maintained and made our stay perfect. We plan to come back many times in the future!

It's a hidden gem. We loved everything about it, the live oak trees at the beginning of driveway, the cozy little house, the water and dock. It's secluded but close to everything. We are planning another trip already.
