Sheldon Castle is a registered Baldwin County Historic home. It is a unique, artistic structure right in Fairhope but secluded on a side street. The Eastern Shore Art Center is down the drive and across the street. From there you are in wonderful downtown Fairhope. The studio suite is a completely private part of Sheldon Castle with the Sheldon descendants in the rest of the home. Mosher Castle with a moat and dragon is next door. Our guests are invited to walk the grounds of both castles. We have a UV air purifier, follow enhanced cleaning guidelines. The suite is a separate part of the castle and easily accessed with just one short step up. The vaulted ceiling with 3 beautiful exposed beams gives the room a spacious and interesting feel. The handsome & comfortable King size sleigh bed is a gift from a dear family friend. A twin bed can be brought in if a 3rd guest will be staying. Children are allowed. Toddlers are allowed after some concerns are discussed. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, double sink & microwave. There is no oven or stove top but a grill is available outside. Coffee & tea is always available. Delicious breakfast muffins are placed in the fridge upon request. The big bay window lets in the sun & view of the grounds but the blackout drapes are there for privacy when needed. We have self check in but we are near by or just a phone call or text away. Four comfortable patio chairs are ready for guest to use when they want to sit in the side yard or out front. Carport has motion light for night time entry and safety and turns off so not to interfere with sleep. Dean works in his art studio & Pagan in her office in Mosher Castle most days. Which means we can meet your needs fairly promptly. Fairhope is a small town so if we do go out it doesn't take long for us to get back to you. It is only 4 blocks to the center of town. Many restaurants, the Eastern Shore Art Center, unique stores, the Civic Center, Fairhope Public Library and the Fairhope Museum of History are all within that walk. Head 4 blocks west and your are in one of Fairhope's lovely bluff parks that overlooks Mobile Bay. Go down the bluff stairs and you can walk along the public beach to the City Rose Garden and public pier. The 24 mile long Eastern Shore Bike Trail is just a block away. For the many people everything is so close they leave their car in the carport during their stay and walk. The city offers a free golf cart shuttle 10am to 2pm in the downtown area. Fairhope has on street parking and several large parking lots. One lot is in the middle of downtown and almost always has spaces. Lots of citizens walk. "Fairhope is a walking town". With parks and a fun downtown so close by it is always delightful. A percentage of our guests payments go to charities that help families who have been displaced by natural disasters. There are two cats on the grounds. Kyra is a beautiful tuxedo cat who enjoys people. She belongs to Lady Paris who lives in the Gate House. Who Mi is solid black and belongs to the Rudolfs who live in the other part of Sheldon Castle. Occasionally neighborhood cats visit as well. We ask that you not allow any of them into the suite. The castle is nestled against protected park land which has a variety birds including number of often active owls. Dean Mosher is an internationally known historical artists. He has paintings in multiple National Parks, major Universities and the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum on the Mall in DC. His sculpture: Nature's Playground in Gautier, MS. is the largest sculpture on the Gulf Coast. Information about walking the Castle grounds which include Mosher, Sheldon and Boom Castles, ponds, bridges and other unique structures along with info on Fairhope will be sent to guests before they arrive.
