“Point Clear Cottages - a GREAT Getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Recently my girlfriend and I stayed at the Point Clear Cottages in Fairhope, AL. We stayed in the "Pelican's Rest" cottage above the garage. This room was beautifully maintained and extremely private.

We were greated upon arrival by a very friendly staff. Two sisters actually. Joanie and Tabitha. (Robert, the owner was called away but we met him when he returned). The staff is there for YOU. When Robert return he came to personally greet us and give us a wonderful bottle of Moscato sparking wine.

They grounds are beautiful with water garden and private pier. They have bicycles, kayaks, grill, hot tub and more for your enjoyment. The sunset over the bay from the pier is gorgeous.

As you would expect with a B&B they serve a group breakfast. They weather was so great they served the guests on the pier, which was great. I also thought it was great that they asked the guests for breakfast requests. Joanie is the cook for breakfast and is wonderful and willing to share her secrets.

Believe me, if you choose to stay at Point Clear Cottages you will have one of the best experiences of any B&B so do yourself and your sweetheart a favor and stay at this hidden gem.

We enjoyed our stay at Point Clear very much. It is a beautiful place and the service and staff could't be better...will definitely go back! The cottage was so clean, bright and quiet and the breakfast on the pier was such a delight.

Point Clear Cottages is such an amazing place. This is the first time we have stayed in Fairhope and it is the only place we will stay going forward. The owner and the staff are so nice and accommodating. The bed in the master bedroom is a tempur-pedic and is amazing. The level of service that the staff and owner provide is unmatched. Jonnie is an amazing cook and provides such a enjoyable atmosphere. She really adds so much to the experience. We had breakfast on the pier every morning and really enjoyed it. I don't what else you could possibly ask for. Thank you for a wonderful experience! We HIGHLY recommend!

Room Tip: The master bedroom is in the main house and is a great place to stay. However, if you are looking f...

Point Clear Cottages is a wonderful secret. The cottage behind the main house is beautiful, welcoming, and has a breathtaking view of the bay. The owner and his staff are the kindest, most accommodating hosts we have ever experienced. Their willingness to go above and beyond to make our stay a special experience was truly remarkable. We love Fairhope and plan to make the cottages our permanent vacation respite. Thanks to Mr. B, Joni, and Tabitha for the wonderful memories. We hope to see you again soon!!!

This was such a wonderful bed & breakfast! We stayed in Pelican's Rest cottage. It was so cute and cozy! The cottage was extremely clean, bright and just amazing. The grounds were immaculate. I couldn't believe the attention to detail. We enjoyed sipping our coffee while sitting among the trees and beautiful flowers. At night, we enjoyed a glass of wine overlooking the bay and watching the stars. The view was breathtaking. So, I'm saving the best for last...the staff at this bed & breakfast has left a lasting impression on me. Mr. Berglin, the owner, made sure at every moment of the day that we were happy. He is a perfectionist when it comes to making sure his guests are completely satisfied. His staff, Joannie, Tabatha and Danny, went out of their way to accommodate us. They worked non-stop, paying attention to detail and serving us. It was the best service I had ever experienced! Joannie's biscuits are a must-try! She is a fantastic cook and gracious host. I just can't say it enough that Mr. Berglin and his staff make it a priority to make sure the guests are completely satisfied. I absolutely have no complaints! I would recommend this destination to anyone that wants to experience the best-of-the-best!

Thank you so very much,
Rachel

The owner/host was perfect, the staff was excellent and the atmospher was amazing. Had a great time. We stayed in the Bayshore cottage which had a wonderful view. The owner was very gracious and helpful. It was quite and the perfect place for my wife and I to get away.

We just returned from our five days in Alabama and we can't say enough complimentary things about Point Clear Cottages. Our quarters were spacious and private and stocked with everything we needed. We stayed in the Pelican's Rest which was larger than the cottage and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the food was so good! Joan and Tabitha were very gracious and the table settings were beautiful. Every morning was another treat! Joan even packed a bag for us with goodies for the trip home!
We enjoyed sitting on the dock relaxing,listening to the water in the bay. The scenery was beautiful and calming.
This has to be an example of a TOP NOTCH B&B! Robert was a very fine host,as well, always ready to help in any way needed!
We have already made reservations for another visit and we will stay longer next time!
Jesse's restaurant in Magnolia Springs is a great place to have lunch or dinner. They have changed owners and the menu,service,atmosphere, and food were all wonderful!
