We're excited to tell you about our new beach house at Ft. Morgan, Alabama, about 18 miles west of Gulf Shores. The Fort Morgan community is located along the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay, and consists of mainly single family beach homes. Many of the families are permanent residents, but there are also many vacation homes. Fort Morgan is a quiet, safe, beautiful community that offers a tranquil, relaxing beach attitude away from the crowds and traffic. You are close to everything, but in a quiet relaxing setting.

There are several very good restaurants nearby and many attractions to visit and things to do. Of course our beautiful uncrowded beaches are the main attraction, but nearby are quite a few golf courses, a public fishing pier, a full service marina, a beach bar, several grocery stores and two civil war forts. There is the Bon Secour wildlife Refuge and hiking trail, and the Dauphin Island Ferry that makes you convenient to Bellingrath Gardens and the casinos at Biloxi and Gulfport.

Fort Morgan Marina is a full service well-stocked marina, and is only one half mile away. It has boat launch, gas and diesel fuel, bait and tackle, and is the headquarters of some of the best charter captains on the Gulf coast.

Our beach houses are the perfect get-away places for those who want to enjoy the beaches and nearby attractions while being away from the crowds and traffic and the problems they bring. Our rates are very affordable, without question the very best on the beach. You will not be spending a lot of money for a place to stay, and by keeping our rates low we hope that you will make several visits to stay with us some during all seasons of the year. The beach is fun all year long, not only during the summer. We invite you to enjoy Fort Morgan and our beach houses. You will be glad you did!

DAUPHIN ISLAND FERRY
(334/540-7787) Links the Ft. Morgan peninsula to lower west Alabama and Dauphin Island. Shortest route to Mobile, Biloxi and Bellingrath Gardens. Departs every 90 minutes from ferry landing at Ft. Morgan, but check schedule for up to date times.

THE ESTUARIUM AT THE DAUPHIN ISLAND SEA LAB
Up close live exhibits of the four local marine habitats: the Mobile Delta area, Mobile Bay, the Barrier Islands, and the Gulf of Mexico. View live fish, plants, and animals from the local marine area. Just a five-minute walk from the ferry landing at Dauphin Island. Plan on spending several hours there.

BELLINGRATH HOME AND GARDENS
This world famous 65-acre landscaped property of the Bellingrath family that features tours of the house, tours of the garden, and a river cruise. Located about 20 minutes from the Dauphin Island Ferry dock.

BON SECOUR NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE
About 10 miles back towards Gulf Shores. One of the last natural nearly untouched areas on the Gulf Coast that allows you to see the native wildlife and plants the way they were before development arrived in the area. Has several hiking trails and a fresh water fishing pond.

SHOPPING
Riviera Center in Foley. Shop until you drop at more than 150 major outlet stores of just about all of the major brand name manufacturers. About 23 miles away.

Old Tyme Pottery. Located between Foley and Gulf Shores on highway 59 (Gina's favorite place to shop). You can find all kinds of houseware, decorations, and lots of STUFF at reasonable prices.

RESTAURANTS
(our choices) There are many, many very good restaurants in the area, however these are out favorites of the ones that we've tried.

Sunsets at Ft. Morgan (closed due to management change, will re-open soon)--located 1/2 mile west on 80 at Ft. Morgan Marina. Operated by Captain Jimmy Howse and Mrs. Jimmy Howse, and Captain and Mrs. Jackie Lee. Excellent menu specializing in fresh local seafood, steaks, salads, and delicious sandwiches. Probably the very best hamburger steak in the world.

Roundback Restaurant About 6 miles back towards Gulf Shores. Good varied menu.

Margarets Plaza West Kitchen--- Located about 4 miles back towards Gulf Shores next to one of the Ft. Morgan Volunteer Fire Stations at Plaza West, and has very good pizza

Daves World Famous Hot Dogs and Snow Cones--- about 1/2 mile back towards Gulf Shores on right. Indeed a very good hot dog. Snow cones are also very much appreciated during hot summer. Also has boiled peanuts, tomatoes and watermelons in season.

King Neptunes Seafood Restaurant in Gulf Shores. Turn right on 50 in Gulf Shores and go about 1/2 mile on right (next to Dive Shop) Very good food, and open late.

Gulf Shores Steamer Turn right on 59 in Gulf Shores and go to the entrance of Alvin's Island and turn right. Local streamed seafood. You've GOTTA try their STEAMED ROYAL RED SHRIMP!

Original Oyster House Turn right on 59 in Gulf Shores and go about 1 1/2 mile on right. An excellent restaurant specializing in seafood, but has a very large menu. Open later than most restaurants.

Nearby Activities:

The Fort Morgan Community is unlike any other vacation beach community along the gulf coast. Since nearly all of the homes are single family houses, and with almost no high rise condos, Ft. Morgan sports a laid-back friendly casual atmosphere free of the crowds and bumper-to-bumper traffic of Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Destin, Pensacola, Ft. Walton, or Panama City. This helps make it safer for children.

Even though we're 18 miles from Gulf Shores, because of the absence of traffic you can travel back to Gulf Shores quicker than being tied up in the Gulf Shores traffic.

It's not uncommon to find many shells, driftwood or sand dollars washed up in the mornings on our beautiful wide uncrowned beaches. You'll have plenty of room for your beach activities, volleyball, walking, jogging, walking, swimming, fishing, or stretching out to catch some rays! Some of our guests have told us that it's almost like having their own private beach.

Our house is located on Benard Court, a safe quiet street that ends at the beach. It's extra safe, because your neighbor will be Ron Bankston, a great guy and a good friend who is a detective with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation, a part of the Alabama Department of Public Safety. His son, Jason, also lives near by, and is a deputy sheriff with the Baldwin County Sheriffs Department.

We require a $200 arrival deposit that automatically switches over to damage/cleaning deposit upon arrival. The arrival deposit is fully refundable if you give us 30-day notice that you will be unable to come. We will make every effort to replace your vacancy, and if we do, you will get your arrival deposit refunded. If a tropical storm or hurricane threatens the Ft. Morgan area while you are scheduled to visit, you arrival deposit will be refunded. Believe me, you don't want to be near the coast when one of those is down here! The damage/cleaning deposit will be refunded immediately (within 10 days) of satisfactory damage/cleaning inspection after departure. Full rental check is required 7 days before arrival date. We will not deposit your rent check until your arrival date. If a tropical storm or hurricane threatens the Ft. Morgan area during your stay, we will refund your rent based proportionally to the time you stayed.

Besides staying in a very nice well-furnished beach house, here are a few more reasons to choose us. First, our rental rate includes all taxes. You can (and so far everyone does) clean up yourselves and save the clean up charge. The clean up charge for the 3 bedrooms $65, and 4 bedrooms $80. We furnish all cleaning supplies and instructions. We do not hold your deposit 3 to 6 weeks (longer) as most of the other rental units do. Your deposit is refundable within 10 days of your departure or if I'm there when you leave, I will give it back to you then.
