New Cabins Come to Historical Blakeley Park


BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — In just a few short weeks, you could spend the night right in the heart of nature at a popular local state park.

Located in a secluded part of the Historic Blakeley State Park, the “Peters” and “Sibley” cabins were unveiled to the public on Monday.

They will be available for nightly rentals starting December 29th.

The park’s director, Mike Bunn, says they started working on these cabins in the beginning of the year.

He says they’re equipped with two bedrooms, are fully furnished, have a bathroom, kitchen and a deck.

Most of the money for the structures came from capital improvement funds from the Baldwin County Commission.

Bunn hopes these traditional cabins will bring even more people out to see what the park has to offer.

“Right now if people want to stay overnight with us, they could stay at our RV park, they could tent camp with camping shelters but we didn’t have a fully equip modern cabin. So this is the first time we’ve been able to do that and we think it’s something our visitors have wanted or asked for. We think it will help us a lot,” said Bunn.

The cabins will be 99-dollars a night Monday through Thursday, then 109-dollars a night Friday through Sunday. There’s also a ten-dollar cleaning fee.

Bunn tells News 5 the park plans to build more cabins in the future but was unable to provide a timeline.
