Very nice!

My husband and I stayed at Volunteer Landing with our 3 small dogs for 7 days/ nights. It was very comfortable and clean. Quiet area. About 7 houses from the beach, it was a very easy walk. The owner had all kinds of beach toys, chairs etc available for use. The house is fully furnished and the kitchen stocked. She's thought of everything! Definitely would vacation here again. Just wish there was a better view of the ocean and bay from the house!

Beach get-away

My husband and I just got back from a short get away and it was great. Doris was great to work with and got back to me really fast. Thank you Doris for sharing your home with us. It was so nice to be able to bring our dogs with us. And the beach was close. The beds where very nice. We like the area. Thanks so much

Nice area

Great area, walking distance to beach. It was very clean. Phone and internet did not work but didn't really need. Small shower with a few ants but beach houses always seem to have them. Overall great stay!

Loved Being by the Beach

Loved being so close to the beach and it was so quiet! House was small but very clean and all that we needed since there were just 3 of us. Beds were VERY comfortable! Also was a plus that it was pet friendly. Owner was easy to communicate with. Hope to be back again!

Great Stay at Volunteer Landing

We stayed at this home over the Thanksgiving weekend and the weather was almost perfect (rain came in the last day). The home has everything you need. It is just a short, nice walk to the beach. We enjoyed the quietness of the area where it is located in Ft. Morgan beach which is pet friendly. It's also just a short drive to Bon Secour National Wildlife refuge. We took the ferry at the end of the peninsula over to Dauphin Island. We really felt like we were getting away on this trip. Doris was very responsive to our emails and arranged everything nicely for us.

Fabulous!

Our family had the most wonderful vacation...due in large part to our neighbors, Les and Doris. They were wonderful! We ate fresh crabs after our Crabbing 101 lesson :). The house is very cozy. We especially loved the view. We even saw dolphins from the deck, beautiful! The beach was so quiet and close. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the area. The family pictures were perfect in the marvelous scenery. My husband and I especially loved the long walks down the beach and watching our family play in the ocean. It is a definite that we would rent this cottage again when we revisit Fort Morgan, Alabama. Thank you for the fabulous experience! The Delcour family from Missouri!

What a great time! My family of 3 stayed at the Landing last August and thoroughly enjoyed the entire week. The accomodations were great; clean, neat and everything you could ask for in a vacation retreat. The white-sand beach is only a 3-4 minute walk away. All the beach gear you need are there waiting on you. You don't need to pack anything but the lotion. It was like having the beach to yourself. No crowd at any time during the week. The location of the house is within a very short reach of everything you want to do while in that area and then you get to go back to the house away from the crowd. The fort itself and the ferry to Dauphin Island are only minutes away. You can drive over to Pensacola and Destin and still have time to get back to sit out at the beach. This was our first time to go to Ft. Morgan and we will definitely return and stay at Volunteer Landing. You just can't beat a more relaxing vacation and the great accomodations. We're so thankful we found this gem. Try it, you will be in for a treat.

Our first trip to the Beach

This was my families first trip to the beach, we had so much fun. The house was very nice and had so much to offer. We loved having all the beach toys and beach chairs already there, we had so much fun walking on the beach collecting shells and catching crabs. My oldest son caught a really big crab. My baby boy loved the baby pool he had so much fun in the pool, he didn't like the beach much but we hope he will like it better next year, he will be 2 then. We can't wait to go back next year!

A wonderful retreat!

My husband and I stayed at Volunteer Landing in May 2008 and feel in love with it immediately! The house is everything you can imagine a beach house should be. The beach is a very easy walk and the view from the deck is wonderful. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed (including beach chairs!) Plus, it was great to be able to bring our dog. It was our first time to stay in Fort Morgan and I know we will be coming back many, many more times! The owners were wonderful to work with and even allowed us to extend our stay! I highly recommend it!
