Gulf Shores Plantation Resort
If you're looking for a beachside retreat
away from the crowds, Gulf Shores Plantation could be the place
for you. Located on the Fort Morgan Peninsula, this
family-friendly resort is a little off the beaten path, but
Shores restaurants, shopping, and other attractions are only a
few minutes away.
Onsite amenities include one indoor and six
outdoor pools, one unlighted and seven lighted tennis courts,
basketball and shuffleboard courts, volleyball nets, sand
horseshoe pits, a putting green, and a newly renovated exercise
room. Tucked into the well-kept grounds is a barbecue area with
grills and picnic tables – the perfect setting for open-air
family cookouts. The community is gated, with 24-hour security.
Each of the one- to five-bedroom condo units
in the property's four buildings has a fully-equipped kitchen
with dishwasher and microwave, a private balcony or patio with a
view of the Gulf, cable TV and DVD player, and parking spaces
for two cars. Many units have washers and dryers, and there are
coin-operated laundry facilities conveniently located throughout
the property. Free wireless Internet access is available at
Connections, a restaurant and coffee bar that also stocks
beachwear, souvenirs, grocery items, and ice.
With up to five bedrooms and four baths, the
property's 15 Plantation Place Beach Cottages offer roomier
options for bigger groups and extended families. Most have
washers and dryers, and all offer access to the resort's other
Nearby attractions include Forts Morgan and
Gaines, both of which played important roles in the Civil War
Battle of Mobile Bay, and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Estuarium.
Worth a day trip is Bellingrath Gardens, a 65-acre estate with
an English Renaissance-style mansion set in magnificent grounds
where something is always in bloom. Just down the road from the
resort is the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, which
features walking trails, seasonal nature tours, and 7,000 acres
of natural wildlife habitat.
Golfers need only go next door to Kiva Dunes,
an 18-hole course designed by Jerry Pate. Peninsula Golf and
Racquet Club, adjoining Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge,
offers 27 holes of championship golf winding through live oaks,
cypress, and other vegetation natural to the area.
