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.

great stay

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay here over Memorial Day weekend. We came for a wedding in Fairhope and the drive there was just fine for us. We also drove down to Orange Beach, which was about 45 minutes I think. Betty's house was sort of like staying at grandma's house for us. Nicely furnished and equipped with everything we needed. We cooked lots of meals in the house and everything we wished for was there, and then some! Nice antiques in the home. Just a really great stay. The one item of note to future visitors that wasn't clear to us when booking was that the sleeping porch isn't air conditioned: it has to be cooled by the wall unit in the adjacent dining room. I was worried we would be too hot during our stay but we were perfectly comfortable. Betty also provided fans for us in case we needed them. I stayed with my husband, mother-in-law and daughter in the house and our sons also traveled with us but slept in our RV parked out back. Easy parking for that if you are traveling in one. We loved our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the chance Lori. I am glad it all worked out;) We heard your concern and just recently added central air and heating to the farmhouse, including the porch, so if you are ever in the area again . . .

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.
