Robert was a wonderful host. We stayed in the master bedroom and also saw the pelican room which I would highly recommend. Beautiful dock with hammock and hot tub on the bay. The weather was not very cooperative. He recommended a great restaurant, the Blue Marlin.

We have just returned from another stay at Point Clear Cottages in Fairhope Alabama. This time we were fortunate enough to stay six days and it was fabulous. There is no way to explain how much we love going to this very special place. As you enter the property the beauty of the many plants and outside premises will quickly tell you this is a very unique place. Once we got to our room we were so impressed with how clean and spotless it was. The tempature had been set to a comfortable setting and the aroma scent they use makes you immediately say " Whow, I am going ot like this place". Once we open the refrigerator to store a few items the innkeeper, Mr Robert Berglin, had stocked it with ice cream, orange juice, tomato juice, mike, grapefruit juice and other specialities. Also, we had a large display of cereal and freshly ground coffee. 250 channels for our viewing pleasure and high speed internet. Did we have it made. That night I took a some time to enjoy the hot tub and a walk on the pier under a beautiful clear evening. The next morning we were treated to an amazing breakfast on fine china and Joanie and Tabitha, made sure we enjoyed it. Fresh fruit dishes, eggs however you like, bacon, blueberry pancakes, grits and some of the best bisquits you have every had. They asked you each day what you would like for the next morning's breakfast and it's ready. I cannot imagine anyone giving this special place a poor review. I know what "southern hospitality" is and I can assure you this goes far beyond any that we've ever seen. Mr. Berglin and his team have a "Commitment To Excellence" that very few in the service industray have today. I highly recommend this B & B to anyone who desires a little "Taste of Paradise

One of the great things about this business is all of the new friends that I meet.

My husband and I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast, we will be back! The grounds were beautiful and Mr.Belinger was the PERFECT host! Joni and Tabatha were very hospitable,also! Every need is pampered too...from breakfast to having robes provided for the hottub.Enjoyed our evenings on the pier overlooking Mobile Bay. It was the perfect escape for our 21st anniversary! I would definitely recommend Point Clear Cottages to anyone looking for a restful getaway!

4 night stay in the Cottage couldn't have been any more PERFECT. We came from Texas to join friends from Seattle at their recommendation. From early morning coffee on the cottage porch or pier, Joni's fabulous and beautifully presented Southern breakfasts in the main house, the immaculately kept cottage ( Thanks, Tabatha!) to our evening gatherings on the pier for some light suppers, sunsets, and star gazing with local friends, our every need was anticipated. Thanks Mr. Robert for your Southern Hospitality. We will be back.

Mr. B. has two new people working for him, and even though we love Mr. B. and his cottage, we love Joni and Tabatha even more! The cottage is still beautiful and perfect, the sunsets are still gorgeous and daily, the landscaping is still immaculate and well-groomed, and Mr. B. is still friendly and concerned for our happiness; but Joni and Tabatha are the BEST!

When we arrived, there was a beutiful arrangement of fresh fruit, wine and candy with a sweet little note wishing us a happy anniversary. The next morning’s shrimp quiche was to die for, and the coffee was perfect. Our second morning there we got to pick the breakfast menu; and as we were (sadly) preparing to leave, Joni and Tabatha made us a “to-go” basket of our favorites. With hugs and a few tears, and promises to see us next year when we return, we said good bye to Joni and Tabatha as if they were family.

Mr. B. says he only wants the very best for his guests, and when he found these two, he really hit a home run! We already made our reservations for next year, and Joni is already planning the menu for next year’s anniversary dinner! (for my opinion of the rest of the resort, please see my previous 5 star review)

Room Tip: The Bay Cottage is the best by far. I've never stayed in the Pelican's Nest, but the sunset...

In deciding where to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, we (Penny and Ed Mullins of Tuscaloosa, Alabama) had to decide between our two favorite vacation destinations, New Orleans and Fairhope. Over the 30+ years we have lived in Alabama, we have gone to one or the other once or twice a year.

Pretty much as a coin toss, we decided on Fairhope, and as departure got closser, we kept second-guessing our choice. Now back home, we agree we could not have made a better choice than the Cottages at Point Clear.

Everything from the attractive table settings in the big house to the welcome champagne in the Bayshore Cottage, where we spent four nights, was first class. The breakfasts, prepared and served graciously and attentively by Joannie and Tabatha, were first class. The surrounding gardens, carefully maintained by Crickett the gardener, were first class, like a scene out of Southern Living, as were the pier and spa.


But none of this outdid our innkeeper. One cannot imagine a more genuinely helpful and enjoyable innkeeper (a noble profession in our judgment) than Mr. Robert Berglin. He is ubiquitous but not a busybody. Look up when you need him and there he is. When you don't, he vanishes. Penny misplaced her wedding band, but thinking she would find it, told no one. Shortly after we arrived home, Mr. Robert called to say that it had been found in the cottage and was on his way to the post office to mail it to her. At breakfast, Ed said he was having trouble with one of the spa jets. Mr. Robert immediately heads out the door to fix it.

Will we book Point Clear Cottages again? Are Mobile Bay sunsets a thing of beauty?

Ed and Penny

Room Tip: Bayshore Cottage provides privacy and quick access to the gardens, dock and Spa.
