The house was perfect for us and our 2 little girls. It was fully stocked from the kitchen, a grill, extra blankets, movies , to a tent and plenty of sand toys for the kids. Very close walk to the beach with kids, the beach was never busy and it was all we had imagined for our first family vacation. The house was comfortable and made you feel very at home. you are a little drive from Gulf Shores but its completely worth being in the peaceful beach environment vs the busy tourist beaches. we were there for the 4th of July and there's plenty close by you don't even need to go into gulf shores and can enjoy fireworks everywhere around you from the house or beach We definitely hope to make it back to Volunteer Landing someday. Thanks for a great place to vacation!

We had a wonderful visit to "Volunteer Landing"! The rental process was smooth and great communication with the owners. The cute house had everything we needed and super quick access to the beach! Very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and great laundry machines! We enjoyed two very close restaurants that were literally down the road. Had a great time at Fort Morgan and just enjoyed slowing down a bit for a much needed vacation. Loved being able to bring our dog with us and we even visited the dog friendly beach area 5 minutes from the house!

Let me say first....the Stiers family that owns the Volunteer Landing Beach cottage were so wonderful, gracious and very easy to work with. The Volunteer Landing was just perfect for both me & my wife. The location is perfect....whether you walk 100 yds to get to the beach or you drive down a ways to see family who is staying close by as well. The Volunteer Landing Beach home is also very dog friendly and the beach cottage is very comfortable, as well as pet friendly. We will most definitely return in the future! We have found our Home Away from Home!

You sit on the deck and look at the Gulf of Mexico to your left and Mobile Bay to your right, you are OUT there on a tiny spit of land, having the time of your life! I love Fort Morgan, and Volunteer Landing. Just like MacArthur, I shall return! More than enough room for myself, my wife, and our dog. Fort Morgan is so pet friendly, it blows my mind. How GREAT if is to walk with your dog on the beach! Gulf Shores would fine you $500.00 dollars for that. Nice King size bed, fully outfitted kitchen, comfy living room, tidy bathroom, great A/C. Bring your food, save your dollars, or dine at Tacky Jack's a quarter mile down the road. I wish we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I really enjoyed the stay this year as we both needed much rest after a very busy beginning of the year. The place was perfect for anyone to enjoy and relax. Quiet and peaceful even thought you were near everything you wanted to do during the trip. Plan on making the same time next year get location and excellent place to stay..

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!
