Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Quaint Czech farmhouse with 2 bedrooms

Grandma's House is a quaint farmhouse that my Czech grandmother lived in when they came to Alabama in the 1930's to farm. It has a country feel with a big front porch and lots of comfortable living. This unique farmhouse is a throw-back to an earlier time. The house has recently undergone an extensive renovation. New drywall, updated cabinets, new windows and doors and so much more. Your personal home including a living room, huge open eat-in country kitchen, 2 bedrooms with queen beds, large bathroom, laundry and enclosed back porch. The front porch is spacious and perfect for relaxing. A rural experience minutes away from downtown Fairhope. Groceries, gasoline, pharmacies, hospitals are even closer.

About Barbara Sharp

We are an active retired couple with 4 children and 9 grandchildren that keep us busy! Grandma's (Babicka's) House is an authentic farmhouse.

Barbara Sharp purchased this house in 1930

Why Barbara Sharp chose Silverhill

Nice country atmosphere but close to groceries, shopping, medical, etc.

What makes this house unique

Staying in your own single family dwelling while vacationing is so much nicer than staying in a hotel;) Come check-out our southern hospitality!

Perfect family holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked Grandma's House for our annual Christmas visit to Fairhope. We couldn't have had a better experience. Barbara's hospitality is such a gift, and the home itself was absolutely perfect for our stay. Having laundry accessibility is an added bonus. We will be staying here again and again for future visits to Fairhope.

Perfect Place and the Best People

  • 5 of 5

First thing, Barbara and Patty could not have been more accommodating and nicer. From the minute I book they went out of their way to ensure I had a perfect stay. Grandma‘s house was perfect. Comfortable and quiet with great beds. Far enough away from the busy places in a quiet area but conveniently located where nothing is too far away. I would love to stay here each time I come back to town.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very charming home. Mrs. Sharp was in contact with us immediately insuring we knew how to get there and once we did we were amazed! Very well kept home in the country and very private. We arrived to complimentary coffee with all the trimmings, chocolate and wine. The home was warm and cozy and we had everything we needed as well as our furry kids. Very close to downtown and the grocery store. We grew up in Fairhope and this was one of the best places we have stayed. Just excellent! We will be back to stay again, and thank you Mr. and Mrs. Sharp for all your hospitality!

Quanit, adorable, and cozy country farmhouse meets all your needs very comfortably.

  • 5 of 5

We loved "Grandma's House". The Sharp's were super sweet and everything was as represented. The house was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities needed for our stay. The area was quite and a few minutes from town and conveniences but that was wonderful for us.
