“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

My husband and I had the pleasure, for our third time' to stay at Point Clear Cottages. Mr. Robert and his staff, as usual, made us feel at home from the minute we arrived until the time of our departure. This was our second stay in Pelican' Rest and, we had the pleasure of staying in the Cottage on our first visit. Although the view from the Cottage is nice, I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed staying upstairs in the Pelican' Rest. Iit is most spacious and comfortable. Joanie and Tabaitha were such gracious host and tended to all of our needs. As usual, Joanie's cooking was delicious!! I cannot forget to compliment Tabathia and thank her for our wonderful pressed linens on our bed! Of course, Mr .Robert, as usual, made sure that we wanted for nothing. We are so looking forward to our next visit to Point Clear Cottages in June 2014 to celebrate our 43rd Wedding Anniversary. This place is. "The only place" to stay in Fairhope. All I can say, do not think too long and too hard before you contact Mr Robert to make your reservations because you will find yourself staying elsewhere. I promise once you have the pleasure of staying at Point Clear Cortages with Mr. Robert, Joanie, and Tabathia you will never want to stay anywhere else. This is the most relaxing, peaceful place you will find!

Room Tip: It relly does not make any different if you stay in The Cottage or Pelican, a Rest. Both accommoda...

This was the first time we had stayed at B&B. It was truly a great experience for us. We stayed in the Master bedroom. You could not ask for better place. Mr. B and his staff are the best. Joanie is a terrific cook. If you want to pampered and spoiled.....this is "The Place". We plan on returning in the summer.

Once again and after a "Wonderful" stay at Mr. Robert Berglin's Pt. Clear Cottages I must say we will repeat our stay with him often as possible. Clean, pristine, and the best host ever. It has become my husband and my favorite place to vacation/get away to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the Mobile Bay and Mobile across the bay. Easy access to go over to the outlets of Foley and over to Mobile or on down to Gulf Shores. Mr. Berglin makes sure that his guest are taken care of and have anything they need in their cottage. We stayed in Pelican's Roost and were so relaxed and had plenty of room. We have already booked for 2014 for two different stays and so look forward to going again. It's almost difficult to share how stellar this place is because of fear it will stay booked and I won't be able to get a reservation. LOL Thanks Mr. Robert for a wonderful stay once again.

My husband and I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend. It was our second stay at this property. Everything was perfect...Mr. Berglin and his staff know how to make their guests feel at home. The property and the cottages are immaculate. It is as "grand" as the Grand Hotel right down the street. Joanie is a great cook...her breakfasts are yummy and master chef worthy. Always something different and unique. This is not you typical B &B...you are afforded much more privacy here than at a normal B&B. It was a little on the cool side Thursday morning, but we could open the window shutters and see the sun rising over Mobile Bay...simply spectacular. And when the sun is setting, the skies are equally spectacular. We have already made reservations for next year...we can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Thank you for your heart felt review and for your return visit. I am glad that you at least got to enjoy the sunrise and set over Mobile Bay from your room due to the weather. We look forward to your return and hopefully under better weather conditions.

I read the other 5 star reviews for this property and wholly agree. Friendly staff, wonderful food, beautiful decor. We stayed in the Eagles Nest which was a room built over the garage. While it lacked the views of the Bayfront Cottage, it made up for it in roominess. The room was huge and basically covered the bedroom, living room, kitchen and dining area in one huge space. It worked out wonderfully. If you want views and "class" The Bayfront Cottage is the way to go as it is nearly right on the beach; however, you won't go wrong with any of the three room choices.

We loved our stay at Mr B's place. Stayed for 2 nights in the Bayfront cottage, which was a lovely and very clean room with a lot of privacy.

Mr B and his staff did a great effort to make us feel at home. We felt very welcome. Ask Joannie to make pecan pancakes for breakfast! Those are to die for.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but that made the hot tub experience even more memorable.

Our vacation getaway was fabulous in every aspect. When I read in Southern Lady about the town of Fairhope and Point Clear Cottages I thought this makes a perfect road trip and getaway. The master bedroom was perfect for us, the sunset was incredible, the hospitality was 6 Star! Robert, Tabitha, Joanie and Constance were delightful. Joanie's cooking so good we are now a fan of "grits"! We will be back...
