“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

I didn't know anything about Fairhope or Point Clear other than what I saw on Sweet Home Alabama, CMT's version of The Bachelorette. Watching this show made me want to see more. I found this place site unseen and took a chance. Well, I was pleasantly surprised when we pulled in. Even at night it's a beautiful place. The cottages were booked so we stayed in the master bedroom of the home; therefore, we got to spend time with Mr. Berglin. He's a very hospitable and kind man. Runs a first class B&B, clean and comfortable. Ms JoAnn cooks up a wonderful breakfast. I hope to stay in one of the cottages next time.

A gentle breeze floats off Mobile Bay and we are on the pier at Point Clear Cottages swaying in our hammocks on this glorious April afternoon. Superlatives just don't quite express the generosity of this lovely place or it's thoughtful host. The waterfront setting, the immaculate grounds and our beautifully appointed cottage are all exceptional. This is the perfect compliment to the town of Fairhope - both are truly gracious and refined.

I took my wife for our wedding anniversary as a surprise.
"It was by far our most comforting, romantic, restful, peaceful and still thrilling week-end ever spent in a B&B or Hotel on the Bay....I would chose this over any hotel for service, cleanliness and beauty....
"Don't miss out on this well kept secret get away" "Personal yet professional service"
Food was unsurpassed by any place to eat in the area for breakfast....crab omelets, fruit, homemade southern bisquits" No grits, unless you ask, of course"
Mr. Berglin and staff surprises you with lots of unexpected snacks and drinks for any time of the day or night....packed frig, coffee, tea and snacks in room...even ice cream and warm cookies....at night.
Watch the sunset from the hot tub or pier....and enjoy his art and professional decor throughout.
We signed up a year in advance...for next year, too.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in the Bayshore Cottage. The cottage is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It offers amenities like HDTV and Wi-fi, a kitchen with a refrigerator and microwave, a very comfortable bed, quality linens and plush towels and bathrobes. The refrigerator was stocked with waters, sodas, juices and yogurts. The bay view from the cottage is perfection. My husband and I enjoyed watching the sun set over the bay in such a tranquil setting. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, there is a hot tub right by the bay, and even hammocks in the boat house overlooking the water. I have never had a more relaxing experience! Mr. Berglin is a gracious host, and his hospitality exceeded expectations. From the crab omelets to the warm cookies delivered to our door, we felt totally pampered.

The town of Fairhope is absolutely charming. Beautiful flowers, interesting shops, and excellent restaurants are abundant. I would highly recommend a trip to Fairhope and a stay at Point Clear Cottages!

My husband and I were looking for a romantic escape on Mobile Bay and we certainly found it at Point Clear Cottages. The little bungalow was a welcome retreat from the kids and the demands of city life. Mr. Berglin and his team truly deliver the highest quality hospitality and facility. We enjoyed sunrise breakfasts on the wharf, long bike rides along the coast, lazy afternoons reading in the hammocks, bbq dinners and sunset on the wharf and plenty of stargazing. The property is just a stone's throw from the Grand Hotel and other Point Clear amenities. It is very private but also very convenient to things. The bungalow itself, as well as the main house, are gorgeous -- well-appointed, tasteful, and appropriate to the area. No detail is overlooked. There were comfy spa robes in the bathroom, the Wi-Fi was ultrafast throughout the property, and the sheets and towels were all of the highest quality. It was exactly the right mix of rustic, luxurious and convenient. The kitchenette was even stocked with all our favorites when we arrived: fresh local fruits and bread, chocolates. When Mr. Berglin heard we liked to squeeze our own orange juice, he even made a point to make fresh orange juice for us every morning. He and his team are terrific and we will definitely be staying at the cottage on our next visit to Fairhope.

I just spent 3 nights with 2 girl friends here and we got real Southern Hospitality from Mr. Berglin and his staff. JoAnn cooks up a delish breakfast each morning and the accomodations are beautiful and so comfortable. Fairhope is a beautiful town of shops, cafes, restaurants and scenery. We enjoyed our little visit. Most of all I enjoyed relaxing at the house and visiting with Mr. Berglin a very pleasant and accomodating host.
