THE place to stay on Alabama's coastline.

5 on February 17, 2015

We couldn't be happier with our stay at Point Clear Cottages. We stayed in the Pelican's Rest and we're delighted the second we walked in and found an immaculately decorated room warm with personal touches. The stay kept getting better, as we met the innkeeper, walked around the picturesque premises, watched the sunset on the private pier, and then enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Highly recommend!

A Charming Piece of Paradise

4.0 on February 16, 2015

This review page would not allow me to rate this wonderful B & B as "outstanding," but it truly was--in every way! Point Clear Cottages was a romantic getaway for my husband and me this month. We stayed in Bayshore Cottage, a charming, beautifully-furnished private cottage on the shore of Mobile Bay! The entire experience was so memorable from the views of the bay to the ice cream in the freezer to the coziness of our cottage to the incredible breakfast we were served in the morning. Mr. Berglin, Joannie, and Tabatha made us feel more like family than guests, and Joannie prepared and served us delicious food, prepared with such care and a respect for details! We would highly recommend Point Clear Cottages to anyone who enjoys making happy memories!

Our Christmas Review

5 on December 23, 2014

Fairhope & Point Clear Cottages!! Pelican's Rest! "We're home"!! --- at least to our wonderful "home away from home"--- and what a welcome we receive from the gracious and most efficient staff---warm hugs, big smiles and special season's greetings. As always, our accommodations are super deluxe! It's Christmas, and this time our very own Christmas tree is up and ready for us, spreading its warm glow over all our surroundings. Soft strains of music fill the air and every light has been turned on to welcome us back again. Fresh flowers have even been arranged in the dining room and bathroom, and refreshments fill the refrigerator!! Any wonder that this is our 12th time to return as guests to this lovely southern living atmosphere?!! Fairhope itself is a fairy tale village and right now it is all decked out in its Christmas finery. The tree-lined streets twinkle out the Christmas message with myriads of little white lights on all the trees---It's MAGICAL. Robert Berglin has pulled this magic right on to his property and home by his lavish decorating skills. This has been another of those special times we term "Just Perfect." Thanks, Robert Berglin and staff for being our "extended family." Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all---and special thanks to our daughter who has put this gift in our Christmas stockings making much of this possible. We heartily recommend this special place now and at any time of the year!!

A wonderful Bed and Breakfast!

It is very nice and really clean. We loved the decorating though out the home and guest cottages. The view of the bay is lovely. Watching the sunset from the pier was very enjoyable. I could sit on the pier and just watch everything. Enjoyed the cute town of Fairhope nearby. There is so much to do there and so nice to come back to the house and sit by the fire. We are returning next year, and I can't wait. Breakfasts are great. Home cooked by Joinie.

Wonderful Stay!

We have stayed at Point Clear Cottages before and we will stay again. No detail has been overlooked in making this B&B the perfect place to stay on Mobile Bay. Robert, Joanie and the rest of the staff are wonderful. Sunsets are amazing! We are already looking forward to next year!!

Our 46th Stay with Point Clear Cottages

5 on November 22, 2014

My husband and I recently stayed at Point Clear Cottages; this is our fourth stay - We absolutely love staying in the cottage on Mobile Bay! Mr. B. has a first class B & B; the staff is wonderful - we always enjoy being with Joannie and Tabatha! Joannie prepares the most delicious breakfast which we always enjoy eating in the beautifully decorated sunroom! From the sunroom, we enjoy seeing the beautifully landscaped grounds and also the view of Mobile Bay! The motto of Mr. Berglin, along with Joannie and Tabatha is that we want your visit to be a memorable one, and whatever, we can do to make that happen, we are going to do just that! We plan to visit again in the Spring! The visit to Point Clear Cottages is always a wonderful, outstanding, and relaxing experience! We look forward to our next visit!

Old world southern charm

If you are looking for a long forgotten tradition of southern hospitality and charm, this is the place. The innkeeper, Robert, is a wonderful host, providing a long forgotten tradition of what a southern gentleman is. His staff is the absolute best, providing clean, comfortable and elegant accommodation's, not to mention the beautiful breakfast table and scrumptious food. We were provided with in room wine, fresh flowers and card for our anniversary, not to mention the ice cream, fruit and muffins for sunday morning. The grounds and dock area are just beautiful and so very peaceful. Robert opens his home and surroundings to his guest. Along with his staff he makes you feel as though you are right at home and we are all old friends. Could not ask for a better B & B. Will definitely visit again.

An excellent experience.

I am so pleased with Point Clear Cottages that I made my reservation for 2015 while I was there this year. This was my 8th year there. Robert is a very accommodating host. Breakfast on the pier was wonderful. Joannie's cooking was superb. The grounds are beautiful and immaculate; thank Bernard. Joannie and Tabatha do an excellent job of servicing the rooms.. The Blue Marlin a very good restaurant.

Incredible! Dont miss this one!
