Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The river cottage was just as beautiful as the pictures! Very peaceful location with no tourists to deal with! Neighbors who own a Seafood business are amazing with amazing fresh shrimp/crab! The house was an amazing vacation for our family (10 & 8 year old boys & aging Mother in Law). I don't know who enjoyed it the most! The dock is perfect to fish or just enjoy the scenery. The porch was awesome to relax on or to have a nice dinner outside, away from the bugs! The boys also loved playing ping pong beneath the house. Dauphin Island is about 10 minutes away if you want to go to the beach! The owners are amazing & so helpful! Will definitely visit the River Cottage again!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tiffany for your stay and kind review! I'm glad you mentioned our wonderful neighbors! You can't stay many places where delicious fresh seafood is so close (yet not toooo close!) . We love dinner on the porch, too. We look forward to having you back! Julie and Steve

The house is amazing! Amazing fishing, make sure you bring your fishing pole. Even though there was no WIFI my teenagers had a blast.

Wonderful: beauty quiet comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Such a special property. At the end of dead end lane. Quiet so you can listen to birds and enjoy the peace. Pretty with trees, water, dock. Just the right space for 3 couples (1 double bed was fine) with 3 bathrooms.

The cottage was comfortable and exceeded our expectations. Everything was provided as advertised. We enjoyed the quiet location, the pier, porches, space, and amenities provided with the cottage. Great experience!

The home was beautiful, quiet surroundings and the ping pong table was a great treat for the teens!

If you don't like the normal beach seen and want to try something a bit different, this is it! Sitting on the screened in porch, relaxing as boats, jet skis, kayaks travel up and down the Fowl River was awesome! Loved the proximity to Dauphin Island and Mobile. If you want to get away, this is your vacation home.

Sweet Serenity

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I ventured to the Mobile area for a conference. Instead of staying at the traditional convention hotel, we opted to rent this wonderfully comfortable home 25 minutes from the conference site. What a great decision! Mon Louis River Cottage is a peaceful oasis; yet close to interesting things to do if one is so inclined. Dauphin Island is beautiful...spend some time there. Julie has a comprehensive list of "Kenney Favorites" which is quite helpful. Peace and quite is what you get here. We hope to return when we can spend a week and further explore this beautiful area. Thanks, Julie!

Located about 15 minutes from the beautiful white sandy beaches of Dauphin Island, this hideaway is on West Fowl River. Located just downriver from beautiful Bellingrath Gardens, it's a nature lover's paradise! Jump in a kayak and explore the river, or just cast a line from the dock. Located along the Alabama Coastal Birding trail, this cottage is a great spot to view all types of birds.

You're 30 minutes from Mobile and all the attractions there, and a short drive to Dauphin Island where you can visit historic Fort Gaines, the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, the Estuarium (sea lab and aquarium), and of course the beautiful white sandy beaches.

Other Activities: Birding, Kayaking, Relaxing!
