I'll keep this short because I agree with every single one of the excellent reviews already posted. There is a reason this B&B is currently rated the 2nd best in the U.S. according to TripAdvisor. Actually there are many reasons: it is an immaculate, beautifully decorated establishment with lovely views, a warm and gracious host and wonderful, wonderful breakfasts. We... More

I am not sure we can express our experience properly in words. We wanted a relaxing get-away. My wife had heard about Gulf Shores, but hard to find a room and was very expensive. So we worked up the bay on the internet and found Point Clear Cottages. After reviewing website and ratings, I called Robert to see how he... More

Beautiful stay at Point Clear Cottages. We stayed in the Pelican room. Very clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The views of the sunset from the dock was breathtaking. The owner, Robert, was very accommodating and Joanie made a delicious breakfast! We will definitely return.

Excellent stay in the master bedroom suite, we had a beautiful room with a very comfortable bed. Mr. Berglin was a very pleasant and accommodating host; the property was very well kept and beautiful, and the hot tub by the pier was great. We would definitely book accommodations again.

We just returned from celebrating our anniversary at this amazing property. The hospitality was so kind, warn and inviting. The Bayside Cottage is simply pristine with a gorgeous view of the bay and every detail taken care of. Roger is such a gracious host and Ms. Joanie serves the most delicious breakfast every morning. The gardens with 3000 caladiums planted... More

Thank you for choosing Point Clear Cottages to celebrate your Anniversary and for your review. I wish the weather could have been a little cooler, however, the breeze from Mobile Bay did come in handy. We hope that you will consider us when visiting the Baldwin County area.

My husband and I travel between Australia and Tuscaloosa, Alabama twice a year and try always to include a few 'local' adventures. Discovering, Fairhope and Point Clear Cottages was like a dream come true as we love to surround ourselves in the best of that famous 'Southern Hospitality'. Firstly, we arrived into town early and swung by the cottages way... More

Felt like you had it all to yourself. Refrigerator was stocked well with water/juices even ice cream. The owner told us, it was stocked for us... More

Robert Berglin has established a B&B that rivals any Bed and Breakfast that my wife and I have stayed at in Europe or the US. It deserves the high ranking it has earned with Tripadvisor. We stayed in the Bay Cottage and also in the house and both exceeded our highest expectations. Watching the sunset from the pier with a... More

I hated to see you all leave, I can't tell you what a joy it was having your around and letting someone take of the two of you for a change.

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
