About Betty Heinze

I grew up in this house and went to school in Silverhill. As an adult, I moved to southern California and raised a family before coming back to my roots. I love living in Baldwin County but especially love the small town of Silverhill.

Betty Heinze purchased this farmhouse in 1926

What makes this farmhouse unique

My favorite place to hang out is the sleeping porch. I have fond memories of daydreaming or reading on the porch with the gentle sun streaming in.

Wonderful, quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at the farmhouse. Betty was attentive to make sure we had everything we needed and the house was as it should be, and of course, everything was perfect. The farmhouse has pretty much everything you could possibly want or need for a short- or even long-term stay. We were happy with our getaway here and look forward to next time!

Perfect Alabama Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved my stay here. My girlfriend and I rented this place for Easter weekend to see my family in Gulf Shores and it couldn't have gone any better. 15 minutes from downtown Fairhope and only 30-40 minutes from Gulf Shores. Miss Betty was a great host as well, we had everything we needed and then some. You can't find the charm this place has at an overpriced hotel on the beach. We will be back again.

Very nice!

Clean and rustic. As always, Betty thinks of everything! The property was great for our puppy's first vacation experience. Very homey, and comfortable. Would recommend this property if you want a quiet peaceful environment to relax in.

Comfortable and charming!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay for the Fairhope Arts and Crafts Fair. The home is conveniently located between Fairhope and Robertsdale. The homeowner is very easy to work with and the home is clean, comfortable and so charming. I recommend it for anyone wanting some peace and quiet.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 2, 4-legged children stayed here over a weekend in June. What a charming little jewel of a property this place is. Plenty of space, well stocked, clean and full of Southern charm. The owner had excellent communication throughout the entire process. We will definitely stay here again when traveling to this area and would highly recommend to others. Very close to downtown Fairhope.
