There is definitely a reason Robert's wonderful bed and breakfast is rated #2 in the country. My wife, Kathy, and I have stayed at b and b's all over the country and this one is hands down the best. Robert and Joannie were the consummate hosts. The accommodations in the Bayshore Cottage were excellent and the breakfasts were to die...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend while I was in the area on business. It was such a relaxing getaway after a week of working. We stayed in the master bedroom in the house and Mr. B gave us the run of the house and our own key. He and his staff were amazing! Such great...

My husband and I spent five nights in the Bayshore Cottage, a small romantic cottage by the bay, and we loved the setting and the privacy. The cottage is darling and we really enjoyed it. We had breakfast (I should call it a feast!) each morning in the main house and Joannie surprised us each morning with a fabulous breakfast....

Our family recently spent three delightful nights in Pelican's Rest. Mr. B. was very easy to work with and accommodating, as was everyone. Joanie is just precious and a fabulous cook and hostess! We also enjoyed talking to Tabitha and Bernard - they were so friendly and made us feel right at home. Our first morning, we saw Bernard soon...

Planned a girlfriend get together in Fairhope but the weather didn't cooperate. Luckily we were in the Pelican's Rest and couldn't have been cozier. It may have been nasty outside but we still had a comfortable place to visit and catch up with each other. The bed was comfortable and the small kitchen was perfect for making snacks and cups...

Thank you for choosing Point Clear Cottages and the wonderful review. For Fairhope to be such a small town it has a lot to offer, I refer to it as a "little slice of haven".

Everything was absolutely perfect during our weekend getaway at Point Clear Cottages. We stayed in the Pelican's Rest and were superbly impressed with the room, continental breakfast set-up (only for Sunday mornings), and the personal touches (we stayed on Valentine's Day and found a box of chocolates on the pillow).
