Surprise Landing Cottage Beautiful Area Near Fairhope, Alabama & Marriott's Grand Hotel
950 Sqft Cottage hosted by Frank
4 Guests . 1 Bedroom . 1 Bathroom


Surprise Landing Cottage is in the quiet, secluded area known as Battles Wharf. Our fully equipped and furnished Cottage is located on the Mobile Bay side of the scenic coastal highway, and is just minutes south of Fairhope and the Fairhope Municipal Pier and one mile north of Marriott's Grand Hotel.

No direct water view from the Cottage, but guests are welcome to walk out front to access and use our private pier for water-related activities like fishing, swimming, sunsets, pick nicks, hammock naps, and the like. The pier has a covered pavalion, a galley with water and electricity, and a lower level deck for ease of water access. We keep light tackle and frozen bait on the wharf for guests’ use.

There is a walking, biking trail that parallells the coastal highway. So Fairhope's charming shops are a quick drive or bike-ride away

Our area is known for its many seafood restaurants. Tanger's Outlet Center in Foley is a short 30 minute drive for great bargains and The Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort offers a great variety of shopping and dining opportunities.

We are a short drive to historic Mobile, the Battleship Alabama and the beaches of the Alabama Gulf coast.

Grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail necessity shopping are a ten minute drive.

The area is a bit of a golfing Meca with the Robert Trent Jones Lakewood Club and several other courses nearby. Our weather makes makes golf pretty much a yearround activity.

Fairhope's Arts and Crafts Festival takes place every spring and there are always local artists working in Fairhope. Mobile's Mardi Gras and Fairhope's own Mardi Gras celebrations attract many visitors who like our low-keyed style of celebrating. Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is a unique opportunity to learn about Coastal Alabama.

Whether you are looking for golfing, art, walking, biking, tennis, boating, fishing, crabbing, shopping, discovering coastal South Alabama or just plain relaxing, all are available for you to enjoy year round at Surprise Landing Cottage.
