Enjoy Point Clear's finest sunsets, Write on the Bay!

This beautiful and quaint waterfront cottage is wonderfully situated for a peaceful retreat on the Mobile Bay. With picture perfect views from the screened porch or boat house, guests can enjoy their morning coffee or evening cocktail right on the water while watching the pelicans and herons hunt, dolphins splash and seagulls soar. There's even nearby beach entry for kayaks and paddle boards and a boathouse for stargazing or fishing off the dock. 

The setback of the home is only 10 feet providing incredible opportunities to enjoy the beauties of the bay from anywhere in the home. It's simply magical!

  • WiFi and streaming televisions for guests who want to live and work remotely,
  • Bunk room and board games for families with kids


Listed by Southern Living as one of The South’s Best Small Towns, Fairhope is filled with a rich history and undeniable charm. This recently renovated Bayfront cottage is conveniently located to all the area has to offer:

Why the name "Write on the Bay"

Aside from the obvious fact that the home is right on the bay and fabulously close to the water, the name "Write on the Bay" is inspired by the fact that Fairhope is home to more published authors per capita than any place else in the country. At one point not many years back, three local writers were on the New York Times bestsellers’ list at the same time: WEB Griffin, Winston Groom, and Jimmy Buffett. We hope our guests find inspiration to write during their stay and join the ranks of authors like Winston Groom, WEB Griffin, Sonny Brewer, Upton Sinclair, Fannie Flagg and Jimmy Buffet. 

If writing isn't your thing, Fairhope is a perfect spot for art lovers, most notably during the Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival in March. In addition, visitors can stroll through downtown Fairhope visiting art galleries and listening to music for Fairhope's First Friday Art Walks hosted by Eastern Shore Art Center.
