We spent our honeymoon in the Pelican's Rest apartment at the Point Clear Cottages. Mr. Berglin and his wonderful staff (Joe, Sharon, Tabitha, and company) made sure that we had an absolutely delightful and relaxing trip to Fairhope. From fresh flowers and a bottle of wine in our room to the delicious breakfasts each morning (the shrimp and grits are so good!!), we received the royal treatment throughout the entirety of our stay. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the rocking chairs and hammock on the pier and watching the beautiful sunsets over the bay. This is truly a beautiful location and a very special place to vacation! We can't wait to come back soon!

Michael & Katherine, Thank you for the great review. I enjoyed meeting you both and having you stay here. I have asked Katherine's mother for your e-mail as I want to write you about having worked with Katherine's grandmother at the bank in Fairhope. Thanks again and I wish you much happiness.

Although this establishment is billed as a bed and breakfast it is in actuality a bay front estate with two private and separate unattached apartments.
The host has thought of everything. I have never stayed in better equipped resort lodging. Not only is coffee and cereal furnished in each apartment. The fridge was stocked with fresh milk, juice, water and three assorted flavors of ice cream. All of this is provided in addition to a full hot breakfast varied each day to include pan cakes, waffles, omelets and shrimp and grits just in case one forgets they are on the coast.
Breakfast is served in the main house on a glassed in porch overlooking the gardens and bay. The main house is luxurious and inviting.
Our apartment was beautifully appointed and immaculately clean. Super comfortable bedding.
There is a private fully equipped dock for fishing and for viewing sunsets over Mobile Bay. We took wine out to the dock and sat in provided rockers watching the sun fall into the bay.

Not a single detail overlooked in easily one of the, if not THE, most casually and comfortably upscale treasures ,overlooking Mobile Bay. It is like staying at your own mini Grand Hotel at Point Clear, only better.

Mr. Robert Berglin and his dedicated staff maintain a property that is packed with the best this elegant Eastern Shore destination has to offer. We love Fairhope with its understated class and beauty and have always adored our stays at The Grand Hotel. Now we have found a little "personal Grand Hotel" at Point Clear Cottages.

As beautiful as the web shots are, we walked in and just felt like "wow" this is even better than we expected from the description. We want others who appreciate the best and respject the efforts of Mr. Berglin and his staff to enjoy a place that can compete and in our view win the Five Star competition hands down.

Room Tip: We stayed in Pelican's Rest, but were given a tour of Bayside. Both are beautiful just as depic...

My husband and I recently had a wonderful stay at Point Clear Cottages....exceeded all our expectations...beautiful property, gracious host and staff, lovely service. We reserved a cottage for the Spring season before leaving. Fairhope and Point Clear are ever more upscale. The property has a wonderful pier for relaxing on Mobile Bay. Robert is not only an attentive host but is as welcoming as a special, personal friend. Trip Advisor hits the mark perfectly with reviews of Point Clear Cottages. The Burts from Dallas area

I was looking for a serene getaway on the coast and found so much more than I was expecting. Bayshore Cottage truly has the atmosphere that you remember from visiting a much-loved relative's home. So welcoming and comfortable, with every amenity. Everything is the best it can be, from Blue Bell ice cream in your freezer to Twining's tea by the bed. The cottage is only steps from the water, and there is no human or vehicle traffic to disturb your peace. Breakfast--which is delicious--is served on Mr. Berglin's beautiful glassed-in porch overlooking the bay. Mr. Berglin will treat you like part of his family. I love decorating magazines, so I was given a stack to enjoy out on the pier. This is a lovely and perfectly safe place for any solo traveler, and it is located near the shops of Fairhope, countless outstanding restaurants, and upscale outlet stores. I look forward to returning. Judy

Room Tip: Bayshore Cottage is like a dollhouse for grownups.

Judy, Thank you so much for the nice review on Tripadvisor.com. I appreciate you staying in the Bayshore Cottage and look forward to seeing you and your daughter next year. The fall is the nicest time on the bay. If you can come back in October or November in weather is perfect. Fairhope will be decorated for Christmas after Thanksgiving and it is a spectacular sight.
