Point Clear Cottages was the perfect place to stay for our first trip to the Mobile Bay area. The Bay Shore Cottage was outstanding: clean and comfortable with parking only a few feet away. The facilities included a long wharf out into the bay with a covered deck at the end and plenty of chairs to view the pelicans diving...

We stayed in the sumptuously appointed apartment cottage filled with luxury design details. Joanie, Robert and Shoobie treated us like (favorite) family! We savored a fine breakfast overlooking Mobile Bay, while enjoying the company of a guest who was a veteran of WWII, and was about to drive his wife home to Illinois! We can't wait to return 'home'.

My daughter and I spent two wonderful days at the Point Clear Cottage. Our stay could not have been nicer. It is a beautiful location with everything you might want or need at your fingertips. Mr. Robert is the best ever Innkeeper and Joanie is a fantastic chef. Kudos to Point Clear Cottages.

Whenever I see a Mother and Daughter traveling together, it reminds me of Me and my Mother (who is no longer with me). So, Daughter, cherish those Mother and Daughter get aways. And with that being said, I was delighted to learn that Point Clear Cottages played a role in making it a memorable one. Thank you for choosing Point...

My husband had a job about an hour outside of Fairhope, so we decided to turn his trip into a mini getaway. We were very lucky to stumble upon an opening at the Bayshore Cottage. The pictures on the website are very spot on. The bed was a king size and it was so soft and comfy. The windows had...

Beautiful setting on Mobile Bay. We stayed just one night but wished we could have stayed two or three. Robert the owner was so accommodating and Joanie and staff fixed the best breakfasts. Very relaxing and peaceful. Would definitely return.

It doesn't get better! Our stay at Point Clear Cottages never disappoints. Robert and Joannie roll out the southern hospitality with style and grace. Our accommodations in the Bayshore Cottage were 5-star with the pier within a few steps of the front door all surrounded by perfectly landscaped and manicured grounds.
