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. Mention watching the sunset from the dock and Joannie leaves an appetizer and a bottle of wine. We stayed in the space above... More

This was a awesome getaway for my spouse and I. We stayed in the Pelican Rest which was set up very nice and was fully stocked with all household items. We felt very welcomed by the staff and owner. The view was beautiful and the breakfast was great. It was also nice meeting others. We will definitely be coming back.

The Fairhope / Point Clear area of Alabama is a well kept secret on Mobile Bay if you like to get away from the large and hectic tourist crowds and just relax. There are plenty of excellent restaurants, a golf course, and shopping. My wife and I have stayed everywhere in the area. There are many nice places to stay.... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Point Clear Cottages for 3 nights in April. We were on a road trip from Minnesota and on our way to Alabama's Gulf Shores. Robert and Joannie were the perfect hosts - as Robert said upon our arrival, " Whatever I have is yours during your stay." We grilled steaks... More

Thank you for the lovely review and for choosing Point Clear Cottages during your recent visit to Alabama. I hope that you enjoyed your time in Gulf Shores as much as you did with us. Isn't Alabama a beautiful and friendly State? I was wondering if you noticed how nice the roads were here and no tolls to pay, smile.... More

Fantastic hospitality -great breakfasts and bed! What could be more relaxing than sitting at the end of a private pier , looking out over mobile Bay and watching pelicans swoop down for fish?And then get in the hot tub with a beer ! There are fresh oysters at many local restaurants and Fairhope has beautiful houses and gardens to gaze... More

Thank you for choosing Point Clear Cottages during your recent visit to Alabama and for your review. I agree with everything you said about the Pier and am surprised that you didn't see any dauphins during your stay. Aren't the sun sets incredible.

We stayed at Point Clear Cottages last April in the Bayshore cottage and loved it but this year we were staying longer and chose the Pelican's Rest which is a huge, open studio with a complete kitchen, living, dining and bedroom areas. It was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Joanie and Mr. Berglin took good care of us again with... More

Well, despite the lack of cooperation from mother nature; I was delighted to learn that you all did get to do a couple of things in between rain drops. As I stated during our conversation, October is a beautiful time of year to visit. Tell your husband to keep up the good work, all that hard work is paying off.... More

My wife and I planned a trip to Fairhope Al. because we want a nice coastal town in which to retire. We found Point Clear Cottages on line, read the reviews and booked it. The Bayshore Cottage had us living waterfront on Mobile Bay for a few days and it was heaven. Mr. Robert and his staff treated us like... More

Thank you for trusting "The Reviews" and for choosing Point Clear Cottages during your recent search for a retirement home. I highly recommend the Fairhope area being a native of Fairhope, however, I left for a number of years. I have been back for over fifteen years and wild horses couldn't relocate me again. Best of luck and keep us... More

My husband and I stayed at Point Clear Cottages for 5 nights. Robert and Joan anticipated our every need and treated us like family. Our cottage was perfect and the breakfasts were delicious every morning. They were there to tell us all about the area and to make our stay perfect. We will definitely go back again and again!
