My husband and I visited June 24 - July 1, 2015, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The beautifully manicured property and wonderful accommodations were absolutely breathtaking. We stayed in the Pelican's Rest - it was beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable. Mr. Berglin is quite the gracious southern host. Both he and Joannie could not do enough to ensure... More

My husband and I needed a break from working and caring for my elderly mother. We only had a short time and didn't want to travel a long distance. I don't remember how I stumbled upon Point Clear Cottages but am so proud that I found them. We stayed in the cottage which exceeded my expectations many times over. Not... More

What a fantastic venue and the owner of the property could not be any more accommodating!!! Excellent. If you want to have dinner on the water...done. If you want an outstanding restaurant recommendation...He's got several! We recently celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary in Bayshore Cottage and could not have been more pleased. Breakfast was out of this world and prepared... More

What a wonderful place to visit. Every member of the staff made you feel like family. Rooms are excellent, quiet and private. Breakfast was outstanding both mornings. The dock area, on Mobile Bay, was relaxing and made for a place to read, watch the abundant bird life or take a nap.

Fairhope has always been one of our favorite places to stop and visit on our way home from visiting relatives over in Niceville, Florida. When we were planning our short vacation this year, I went to bedandbreakfast.com to see what was what. Up popped POINT CLEAR COTTAGES. Looked like the type of quiet place we were looking for, so I... More

Wow! What a great getaway location ~ the perfect place to feel pampered! Mr. B, the host, gave us excellent suggestions for dining while we were there. Joannie's breakfasts, served on the sunporch of the main house with its beautiful view of Mobile Bay, were outstanding each morning! One evening we were invited to enjoy hamburgers on the pier with... More

We were very delighted to learn that you enjoyed your stay here at Point Clear Cottages and thank you for choosing us. I agree with you about the Pier, if I lived here, I'd never get anything done; I would spend countless hours rocking away. I regret that I was not able to stay and watch the sun set after... More

My husband & I had the good fortune to pick Point Clear Cottages. The owner, Robert, and his staff, Joannie & Connie, were so gracious and warm. Joannie prepares a scrumptious breakfast served in a room overlooking the Bay. She even provided a beautiful gardenia at our bedside. The grounds are breathtaking and so restful. The pier is a perfect... More

Thank you for your review, I like to refer to this as a "Little Slice of Heaven"; also I agree with you that the Pier is a place where you could just slip away for hours on end. Not to mention the sunsets. I am glad that you enjoyed the Gardenia, I only wish that they would last longer because... More

We were driving from Louisiana to central Florida and had heard of Point Clear Cottages in Fairhope, AL, along the coast of Mobile Bay. We called, got a room in the main house, and what a surprise. Our host, Mr. B, was a charming gentleman, and our delicious breakfast was served on lovely china. We have every intention of staying... More

I almost do not want to let you know about this gem. Robert and his staff have thought of everything! Need half and half in your morning coffee? It is waiting for you in your own fridge.
