If you are looking for an old fashioned beach vacation, near attractions, but off the beaten, this is the place for you to unwind after a day at the beach. Hang your towels on the clothesline, rinse off under the outdoor shower, then relax under the ceiling fan on the porch which is shaded with trees laden with Spanish moss. The cottage also has a bunk room just off the porch. Just a perfect romantic getaway or for an affordable small family vacation. Family owned property since the 1950's: I purchased this property from my mom in 2004. My stepdad was a professor at University of Alabama built 'the cabin' when he wasn't fishing! In 2005 I put a new roof on it, updated electric, put in a heat pump, and covered it with hardiplank. Although it still retains its charm, it is more energy efficient! Just added a flat screen tv and new Weber grill! Golf: The Peninsula Golf Club and Kiva Dunes are located just down the road. Other local courses include Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend. Outlet Shopping: Ten miles north of Gulf Shores in Foley, Alabama the Tanger Outlet Center features 120 name brand shopping options for the bargain hunter. Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Osh Kosh, SAS, Gap, Banana Republic, Anne Klein, and more. The City of Gulf Shores has a recreation center with daily, weekly, or monthly rates. It features an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness room, There is also a really nice playground near town, even a doggy park! If you bring your dog, you must have approval before booking. There is a $50 pet fee per approved dog. Dogs must be sweet, flea treated, potty trained, and rules for dogs on the beach must be followed (leashed and picked up after). Please understand, your dog is not everyone's lap dog! More
