WOnderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cottage so that we could attend our son's flight school graduation in mid-September. Having stayed on the base in the cabins several times, we were disappointed to find there was no availability during the week we were to be there, but now I'm glad we weren't able to book a cabin.

The Cottage was lovely, so clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. If we ever need to visit the area again, there's no doubt we will be booking the Cottage at Fort Rucker.

Nice Secluded Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our son's graduation from Air Force helicopter pilot training. It is conveniently located to Fort Rucker and a very short drive to the stores and restaurants in Enterprise. It is nicely furnished. It is very secluded so you can have friends and family visit and not have to worry about your privacy. Nice screened in back porch and back yard complete with fire ring and gas grill. Just remember you are located adjacent to the largest military helicopter training base in the country so expect to hear lots of helicopters warming up and flying overhead. If we ever have a need to come back to the area, we would not hesitate in staying here again.

Adorable cottage as close to Ft. Rucker as you can get!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is nestled just a stone's throw from Fort Rucker. It is quaint & adorably furnished with just about anything you could want or need. They didn't leave out one little detail. It is perfect for couples or families, as it has 3 bedrooms. If you're planning a trip to Fort Rucker, AL, I would strongly suggest that you stay at The Cottage At Fort Rucker. You'll feel at home and will leave wanting to come back!

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Should you choose to disregard property rules, such as no smoking, etc.; expect to be asked to vacate the property with no refund issued. Please know that disregard of any house rule noted after stay will also result in permanent ban from future stays.

If you have already been a guest at the cottage in the past, the security deposit may be waived if no issues were noted. Unfortunately, due to undesireable guests causing damage to the property and the fact the VRBO does not provide a rating of guests by owners to assist in weeding out problem guests, we now must require a security deposit.
