The floors in all bedrooms and living areas are Brazilian cherry. Each bedroom features its own bath. The master bath has a double whirlpool tub, multiple shower heads 2+person shower, and marble floors.2000 square feet of decks overlooking the bay with stainless gas grill and outdoor dining table and chairs. This home has over 4200 square feet.
The location of this home is at the point end of County Rd. 1. We are on Mobile Bay with views of Weeks Bay and Bon Secour Bay. The State Boat launch is near the property. We have a 350ft private covered pier with boat/swim platform and a fish/crab cleaning sink. The pier deck at the end is large enough to have a large party and safe enough for the kids with benches and railings. We also have a nice private sandy beach,and a double hammock on the deck overlooking the bays. This property will accommodate family reunions and has a RV Hookup.

We are 10 minutes away from the world famous Grand Hotel and 15min..from downtown Fairhope. The Tanger Outlet Mall is 20 minutes away and Gulf Shores is 35 minutes away. Some of the best seafood and shopping is so close,but Shangri-Log is so quiet and peaceful. Walking/running/bike riding for those who enjoy a little exercise. Our roadway is used for several races throughout the year so it is perfect for these activities. Our front porch has rocking chairs to watch the sunrise. We have a kids swings under the house.We enjoy sitting on the beach porch and watching all the birds(blue heron,brown pelican,owls,sea gulls,osprey,etc.)Great fishing and crabbing or bring your small boat or jet skis and dock at the end of the pier. Have you ever been floundering, our water and bay is perfect. A little tidbit: We have Jubilee's in Fairhope/Point Clear, the only other place for this phenomenon is in Japan! The artwork in Shangri-Log is from Dawn Manning Jardet (owner)a locally acclaimed artist.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS SUNSET!!!!!!!!!
We have the most fabulous sunset and sunrise views.

                        TEN OF US VISITED SHANGRI LOG IN THE DEAD OF WINTER AND MUCH APPRECIATED THE FIREPLACE AND WINE FRIDGE, BUT MORESO THE OWNER. HE WAS VERY SENSITIVE TO THE NEEDS OF 70+ YEAR OLD WOMEN, ANSWERED EMAILS PROMPLY AND MADE SURE OUR STAY WAS BOTH COMFORTABLE AND DELIGHTFUL. BE EVEN BETTER IN THE SUMMER!

                        loved everything about our stay at Shangri' Log! it definitely helped that we had incredible weather, but the house had everything we needed to cook, relax, and just enjoy our weekend. the house is very secluded at the point end, but that was perfect for us. thanks so much!

                        What an amazing location! It was perfect for our family retreat of individuals from 2-60+. Some of our favorite things included: the dock, dolphins swimming by almost every morning, beautiful scenery inside and outside the house, quietness, well stocked kitchen, catching crabs, beach perfect for kids, and ample indoor and outdoor seating arrangements. The owners were easy to communicate with and were able to help fix the internet when the modem was destroyed by lightning. Everyone thought that I had booked a the perfect spot and had a great time!

                        We had people at every stage of life and all had a wonderful time. My daughter raved over the kitchen and all ladies would visit while making meals and we had so much room! We had pool games going all the time, and my techo son-in-law found the sound system worked wonderfully. All the family enjoyed the wii and hours were spent comfortable watching the grandchildren swim. Our first two days were rain, but noone felt clostrophobic. My grandson that loves the outdoors spent those days under the house in the sandbox and on the swings. We usually come to the area to visit relatives, but outgrew their homes. They came for dinner and loved the location, the house and facilities. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

                        Beautiful home in a great location. Great kitchen for entertaining. Great pier, we caught a lot of tasty blue crab off the pier. Easy access to Kayak in Weeks Bay and the Magnolia River.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Dawn and I always dreamed of having a place on the bay. We bought this place and thought, what can we name it. Shangri-La(Shangri-Log) is a mystical place that words can't describe. The views of 3 different bays and breezes from the bay and gulf are unbelievable. Our white sandy beach and location at the point of the bays make this place special. The location is so close to quaint downtown Fairhope with shops and restaurants and Gulf Shores with all the tourist things to do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Fairhope:
                      This location is at the point of 3 bays. Our home is the last home and we can watch the boats coming in and out of Big Mouth. Big Mouth is the name locals call the location where 2 of the bays meet.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      When you walk into Shangri-Log you will notice all the quality workmanship of this beautiful log home(cabinet maker built this home). The chefs kitchen with GE Monogram appliance, gorgeous Brazilian cherry,travertine and Italian marble floors,the latest TV surround sound system. The Master suite and bath has a double whirlpool tub and 2+ person shower with multiple shower heads. We have a 9' regulation pool table.
