My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend while I was in the area on business. It was such a relaxing getaway after a week of working. We stayed in the master bedroom in the house and Mr. B gave us the run of the house and our own key. He and his staff were amazing! Such great... More

My husband and I spent five nights in the Bayshore Cottage, a small romantic cottage by the bay, and we loved the setting and the privacy. The cottage is darling and we really enjoyed it. We had breakfast (I should call it a feast!) each morning in the main house and Joannie surprised us each morning with a fabulous breakfast.... More

First of all, I'm gonna make a copy of your review to pick me up when I'm down or when I need stroking. I know that Rob's place is your residence during your visit to Alabama, however, we'll have to share you all. I felt such a bond with the two of you and look forward to seeing you again... More

Our family recently spent three delightful nights in Pelican's Rest. Mr. B. was very easy to work with and accommodating, as was everyone. Joanie is just precious and a fabulous cook and hostess! We also enjoyed talking to Tabitha and Bernard - they were so friendly and made us feel right at home. Our first morning, we saw Bernard soon... More

My husband and I enjoyed an incredible 4 days at Point Clear Cottages in early March. We stayed in the Pelican's Rest which was simply charming. Beautifully decorated, spacious and with all the comforts of home. Robert went out of his way to make sure our refrigerator was stocked with water, milk, juices and some of the best ice cream...

Planned a girlfriend get together in Fairhope but the weather didn't cooperate. Luckily we were in the Pelican's Rest and couldn't have been cozier. It may have been nasty outside but we still had a comfortable place to visit and catch up with each other. The bed was comfortable and the small kitchen was perfect for making snacks and cups...

Thank you for such an outstanding review on your recent visit to Fairhope, and for choosing Point Clear Cottages. I am sure the baby was happy to be back in your arms again, why before you know it he'll be crawling and getting into things. If you should ever bring him down, I'll be your sitter.

My wife and I stayed at Point Clear Cottages this past weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with our accommodations. Robert, the owner, was very eager to ensure that our stay was comfortable and he was also very informative about some local places to visit and also recommended some really great restaurants for us, which we were very pleased...

Thank you for choosing Point Clear Cottages and the wonderful review. For Fairhope to be such a small town it has a lot to offer, I refer to it as a "little slice of haven". And very soon all of the spring flowers and trees will be in bloom. I look forward to your return and another story or two.... More

Everything was absolutely perfect during our weekend getaway at Point Clear Cottages. We stayed in the Pelican's Rest and were superbly impressed with the room, continental breakfast set-up (only for Sunday mornings), and the personal touches (we stayed on Valentine's Day and found a box of chocolates on the pillow). We watched the sunset over the bay on the private... More

My husband and and I spent a romantic getaway at Point Clear Cottages, staying in Bayshore Cottage. The entire experience was delightful, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! Mr. Berglin, Joannie and Tabatha were so gracious and made us feel like family instead of guests.
