An incredible home located on 65 acres adjacent to the Fowl River. Year round beauty


From Mobile the road winds through the bayous to Bellingrath Gardens and Home. Located on the Fowl River this 65 acre estate was placed in trust for generations to enjoy. The Bellingraths enjoyed the Azalea's that bloom here and created a color known for the gardens.

The tour of the home is rich with the history of this lovely couple. Never having had any children they wanted everyone to come and enjoy this peace garden.

Not far from the garden we will travel to Dauphin Island. A late lunch will finish off our time about. If you have a specific itinerary in mind send me a message and I'll customize the tour for you.

Itinerary

Mobile to Bayou la batre takes us though farm land to this tiny fishing village. Home of Bubba Blue and Forrest Gump.

At Bellingrath Gardens and Home we will enjoy the season of the garden. Spring has the most flowers, Azaleas are the stars, fall the birds are migrating and leaves are changing, winter is a holiday from November to March, with Christmas folding into Mardi Gras.

We will finish up with a driving tour of Dauphin Island and late lunch.
