“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

My wife and I recently stayed here for her birthday and we could not have found a better place! It was so relaxing to stay here and get away from everything! The entire staff were VERY friendly and accomedating. The breakfast every morning was nothing short of immaculate and the innkeeper, Robert, even offered suggestions on where to eat every night for dinner. The cottage we stayed in was very clean and spotless. The grounds were some of the most beautiful we've seen at any bed and breakfast we have been to. They definitely know what they are doing! We highly recommend going here and we plan to return several times in the future.

This is a great Bed & Breakfast. The Bayshore Cottage and scenery is beautiful. The service and food was excellent. There are a lot of shops close by. Located on the Mobile Bay, and it has a private pier for your enjoyment. We highly recommend as a quiet getaway.

Sandi and Eddie, Thank you for the nice review on Tripadvisor.co.
Please come again in the future. The fall is the best time of year on the bay.
I appreciate you staying with me.

My wife and I truly enjoyed staying here. The Pelican's rest was clean and well stocked unlike any B & B we've ever stayed at. Mr. Berglin was a wonderful host who's goal was to "make everything perfect". The breakfasts were always different and always delicious thanks to Ms. Sharon. The grounds and landscaping were immaculate and we spent a lot of time on the scenic pier. Very convenient to the charming city of Fairhope, where we found that Mr. Berglin and his staff were well known and respected. We feel like not only did we find a great place to stay, but also made some new friends. We will be back.

This is an outstanding place! Great view, great breakfast, incredible service. The innkeeper was amazing! He was so personable, he wanted everything to be perfect for us. He offered to do so much for us, even cook dinner for us if we went to the grocery, when he didn't technically have to. We didn't take him up on it though, because he does so much already. I was pleasantly surprised when there was a bottle of wine in our fridge and juices, milk, and water bottles all for no extra charge. So much better than a hotel! Even the toiletries were incredible! I hate how hotel water makes your skin feel weird, but here this was amazing :). I can't wait to come back. We met some amazing people staying in the Pelican's Rest (we were in the Bayshore Cottage), and made friends with them over breakfast. Even swapped info to keep in touch! The employees were all really nice too, just like a family :). Please go enjoy the hot tub and the beautiful sunsets!

Who could ask for more...college friends in a setting that was perfect for "catching up" while enjoying the beautiful bayside accommodations with a top notch host...an unforgettable visit from the moment we arrived. Can't wait to return!

It was our first trip to Alabama and we couldn't have found better accomodations than Point Clear Cottages. Exceptionally clean, gracious host, beautiful pier, delicious breakfasts... all in a quaint little town! You will not be disappointed.

I think my title says it all. Point Clear Cottages exceeded our expectations . All of the reviews on Trip Advisor are spot on . My husband and I are have just returned home from a 3 night stay in Pelican's Roost . One of the cleanest , friendliest homes we have ever stayed in . The grounds are gorgeous, all of the staff are gracious and friendly . Mr. Robert , the owner is a superb host . Breakfast each morning during week is to die for .. shrimp and grits, crab omelets , bread pudding , fresh fruit, coffee , juice . If you have a certain dietary need, they will try to accommodate . Fridge in Pelican's Roost filled with cokes, juices , and milk. Fully stocked kitchen with dishes , utensils etc . Lots of beach towels at our disposal , and tons of towels in bathroom . Even with all that , Ms. Sharon still picked up each day and brought fresh towels and made bed. We have already booked a second trip in October , and I am rounding up the girlfriends for a long girl's weekend.

The town of Fairhope is beautiful. Gorgeous old houses and trees. The shopping is incredible . No chains here , tons of boutiques , book , jewelry , and antique stores. Several galleries too. The Garage being our favorite , which is not in the center of town, but only a short drive down front the cottages .

Looking forward to our return in October .
