There's really no other option in the Fairhope area when compared to Point Clear Cottages. The grounds are beautiful - luscious green grass, palm trees, ponds, magnolia trees, a pier stretching out into Mobile Bay, well groomed gardens....you're getting the idea. It's the ideal respite you're always daydreaming about.
Could this place get any better? The answer is an unequivocal YES! Mr. Robert Berglin is what sells this place. His meticulous attention to every detail make Point Clear Cottages the epitome of Southern Hospitality. He caters to your every need. He asked us the evening of our stay what kind of ice cream we liked...."We like Strawberry pretty good...." "Well, how about i get you Strawberry, some chocolate and vanilla. How's that sound?" He goes above and beyond to ensure you have the perfect stay.
When we arrived, we got to sit out on the pier in the rocking chairs with Mr. Robert and discuss the plans for our stay. We went over all the amenities of his property as well as the breakfast menu. He's a really interesting guy and doesn't mind just sitting and chatting with you.
A nap in the hammock is a must, so make sure you get that in.
For dinner, we didn't really want to leave the cottage for too long, so we ordered carry out from the Wash House and brought it back. The Bayshore Cottage has a small table inside which was perfect for my wife and I. I would definitely recommend the Wash House. Go with the Shrimp Stack with Fried Green Tomatoes as well as the Spring Rolls.
Breakfast the next morning was amazing as others have said on here as well. We met Mr. Robert's housekeepers and they were delightful as well. They're very personable and you could tell they really enjoyed working for "Mr. B", as they called him. We asked "Mr. Robert" to sit down and have breakfast with us and I would recommend that as well.
It's really not that hard to write a review about this place. The only hard part is that I know it's going to be tougher to get a reservation next time we come since so many people are discovering this Little Slice of Heaven.
