Point Clear Cottages
Ranked #1 of 9 Fairhope B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We were meeting some people in Mobile and I was looking for a B&B. I could find nothing that looked interesting so I decided to look outside Mobile. Fairhope is about 1/2 an hour drive and worth the time. Point Clear Cottages were amazing. Right on Lake Mobile. We were traveling with friends so they took the cottage above the garage and we took the one on the other side of the house. Both cottages we beautifully decorated and stocked. There was coffee, tea, ice cream, juice, milk. Robert was very welcoming. We asked where we could find a launder mat and he said we could use his washing machine. So nice. Joannie does the morning cooking and the first morning we had Shrimp Etouffee over grits. I don't really like etouffee or grits but whatever Joannie did to them was great. The next day was a regular breakfast with fruit, eggs, biscuits, pork chops and potatoes. If only I could have eaten half of what was there. The deck sitting over the bay was amazing. Rocking chairs available, lighting .... so relaxing. If we are ever back on the Gulf Coast I will definitely go back

We returned for another 5 day visit this year and couldn't be happier with our choice! The warm welcome from Robert and Joanie and Tabitha and staff is such a great start to a vacation. Breakfast was amazing with fruit,entrees,breads and even the best bread pudding ever! We stayed in the cottage this time and loved the privacy and the view of the bay. Even though we had massive amounts of rain for a bit, nothing ruined the great visit. Lots of fun and interesting things to do all around the area. Robert is a very kind man and makes you feel like family! If you are fortunate enough to be anywhere near the Eastern shore of Mobile Bay, don't miss an opportunity to be spoiled by Point Clear Cottages. They are TOP NOTCH!!!!

We spend two delightful days in the heavenly B & B which is on the shore of Mobile Bay. Robert and his staff exceeded our expectations. The rooms were well appointed, clean and spacious. The breakfasts that were served were just over the top. This is pne of the best B & Bs that i have ever been in. A+ experience!

The owner, Robert, has thought about absolutely everything to make his cottages cozy and beautiful. Our breakfasts were prepared by a wonderful woman, Jonie, and were out of this world delicious! Plus, the presentations were very tasteful. Tabatha, who also works for Robert, made sure our cottage was perfect in every way. The setting for Point Clear Cottages is perfect, the stay was so relaxing and we will return soon!

We have stayed in many B&B's along the east coast and CA. and we now have a new favorite! Point Clear Cottages owner, Mr. Robert Berglin, is a true southern gentleman who makes every effort to ensure his guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. We were in the Bayshore Cottage-your own private retreat with beadboard walls, hardwood floors, beautiful coastal décor including ironed sheets, a fully stocked refrigerator and huge bathroom. We were totally pampered by Joanie and Tabitha with delicious and elegantly served breakfasts. (The pecan waffles and biscuits with fig jam were to die for!) All of this plus a beautiful setting with gardens and a dock with hot tub where you can relax and enjoy the views of Mobile Bay. Mr. Berglin, a lifelong resident of Fairhope was a font of information on the history and places of interest in the area and provided excellent dining suggestions. We fell in love with Fairhope and especially Point Clear Cottages and will definitely be back. Thanks again for a wonderful visit!

Room Tip: The Bayshore Cottage is your private cottage.

On April 7th - 9th, 2014, due to an overflow of guest at Point Clear Cottages, we were invited to stay in the master bedroom in the main house and what a wonderful experience it was! This room was so beautifully decorated, like the rest of the house, it was spacious with a king-size bed and large bathroom.
Our new found friends, Robert, Joannie and Tabatha, made our stay like being with family. So enjoyable we didn't want to leave. Breakfast was delicious! We were cared for in every aspect and highly recommend a visit to (as someone stated) the Berglin Paradise on the Bay.

The Bryan's
