Looking for a place to feel as though you are truly away from it all?  Want to be minutes to restaurants, shopping etc?  Look no further than "The Original Retreat."  
Located off of Canal Road in Orange Beach, take a gravel road from the main intersection, with trees on either side of the road, to what can only feel as an escape from reality!  At the end of the road, there is a circular driveway with the house and smokehouse that sits on 7 acres.  Feel free to use the smokehouse to try your best smoked recipes!
The house is the original house completely redone.  Feel like you are at an old beach house and then go inside and enjoy modern amenities!  The floor plan is very open.  Walk-in and the kitchen is to the right.  The kitchen has pots, pans, utensils, etc so you may cook or bake during your vacation!  You drop down a step to a living area which is the length of the house!  There is a flat-screen television and plenty of places to sit!  The entire living area has large windows to enjoy the amazing view!
Two bedrooms are to the left as you walk-in.  One bedroom has two bunk beds with twin-size beds on top and bottom.  The second bedroom has a queen-size bed.  Both bedrooms have televisions!  There is also a full-size bathroom in the hall with a tub/shower combination.
The master bedroom suite is on the left-side of the house.  There is a king-size bed and walk-in shower in the bathroom.  The half bathroom is located in the hall off the master bedroom side of the house.  There is a laundry room on that side as well with a washer and dryer.
Look outside from any where in the kitchen or living area and see what appears to be your own paradise!  Your side views are wooded and there is a path down to the pier.  At the pier, there is a place you may fish off of, store your boat in the slip, drop a crab trap, or simply jump in the water for a swim!   There is 300 feet of shoreline to sit or play at the water's edge! Enjoy memorable sunrise and sunsets from the pier!  If you bring a boat, you are minutes from local restaurants and bars who welcome boat traffic!  There are bicycles onsite that you may borrow and enjoy during your stay!
Come and escape to paradise as The Original Retreat!
NOTE:  there is a boat slip but NOT a boat lift

Beautiful property, well appointed . We didn't want to leave!

Such a cute little cottage, tucked into the woods, overlooking the water. It had everything we needed and more. The dock was a lovely place to watch the sunset and have a drink. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!

What an amazing house!!

This house is amazing. It is nice an secluded from the main street which gives you the privacy that you want on vacation. The house is very big on the inside and very open. With air mattresses you could easily fit 15 people in this house. The living room is lined with windows facing the bay which gives you a beautiful view while enjoying breakfast. The pier is well maintained and ready to be fished from. If this house were for sale, I'd be a buyer for sure!

Absolutely georgious

Really hate to tell you about this wonderful piece of property because my family plans to return. I was no able to go but they said the house had been updated and property was outstanding. We originally planned to bring a boat and use the dock but because of an afternoon wedding there was no time. The family said that didn't deter them for having a great time at this house. 
Haven't had a chance to talk to the family as I have been out of town but husband said he wants to rent it for 10 days next year; that alone tells the story. Laura's Vacation Rentals was very easy and pleasant to deal with.

Everything was amazing!

We could not have asked for a better stay! The location, the house, the dock were great. Our two families had a wonderful time and will be back soon. Thank you!
