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.

The space
We follow the CDC/AirBnB's enhanced cleaning guideline and more like blocking out dates between guests to insure the cleanest environment possible (see handbook).
The suite is a separate part of the castle andeasily 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 just not toddlers. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, double sink & microwave. There is no oven or stove top but a grill is available out side. Coffee & tea is always available with a breakfast option 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.

While growing up in Sheldon Castle I learned early on that the home was wonderfully close to all of downtown Fairhope and the bay. Yet, it is nestled in the woods on the edge of a gully so it feels secluded. I am a retired professional ballet dancer who until recently owned a dance studio downtown. My husband Dean is a world renown historical artists with paintings in National Parks, major universities and the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum on the Mall in D.C.. Dean is also a master craftsman. We live in Mosher Castle which he built. It is right next door to Sheldon Castle and the Air BnB Suite. My sister and her husband live in the main part of Sheldon Castle which is the castle where the Airbnb suite is located. I love living surrounded by art, gardening and meeting people from all over the country and the world.

During your stay

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.
