About the area

Visit my listing on Vacation Rentals By Owner #(607703) for more pictures & detailed rates. Fort Morgan is located at the tip of Mobile Point. It and Dauphin Island, on which Fort Gaines is situated, enclose Mobile Bay. The history of the fort dates back to the War of 1812 and continues to be very intriguing today. Tours of the fort & museum are offered daily. Our home is only 2 miles from the fort! Children & adults alike enjoy riding across Mobile Bay to Ft. Gaines on the Ferry. Once arriving at Dauphin Island, along with touring Ft. Gaines, a visit to the Sea Lab is a must!!! Fishing options are unlimited. From the shore banks, to private/public piers, and in the waters of the bay/ Gulf of Mexico there's no telling what you could reel in. Speckled Trout, Redfish, White Trout, & Mullet are some of the inshore favorites. While Off-Shore you may be lucky enough to pull in Red Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, and/or Amberjack. There is a huge public pier at the fort that is open 24 hrs a day. Both Inshore & deep sea fishing trips are available through the Gulf Shores Marina's Charter Fleet (less than a mile from the house). While Ft. Morgan is a secluded piece of paradise there are several restaurant options available within minutes of the house. (Tacky Jacks 2, Sassy Bass, The Beach Club). Since Gulf Shores is known for yummy seafood I thought I would list a few of our favorites. All the ones listed below are in the Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach area (about 25 min away from the house) -Lu Lu's Homeport (has an outdoor activity area for the kids to play) -Papa Rocco's Pizza -The Hangout (has an outdoor activity area for the kids to play) -Cosmos -Brick & Spoon -Cobalt -Lambert's (Foley) Additional Activities close by: -Waterville USA - Put-Put Golf - The Track (Go- Carts, mini-golf, arcade) -Tanger shopping outlets (Foley) -The Warf (free weekend summer entertainment)

“Family memories were made.”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2015

Three generations of family spent a memorable week in this wonderfully located house. Big enough for everyone to have there own space but also close enough to enjoy family time. Very serene location. A small pod of dolphins swam by everyday about mid afternoon. A little far from town but if you want to relax and enjoy your vacation, send an email to Tanya. She was very nice and helpful with any questions we had.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much! My family & I love getting to know our guests & strive to make sure their experiences at HomePlace are awesome! Hope to hear from yall again very soon!
