The house and property are gorgeous, and the owners/innkeepers are lovely. Everything was top notch. The only downside was that it is very hard to find. The directions on the website are not very clear and the sign at the street is very small and easily missed. The sign is a bit misleading too, it just says Fauhope House and then has “private” written under it. Makes it sound like there is another “public” entrance somewhere else. But no this long narrow and bumpy driveway is the way in, and takes you to a beautiful hideaway.
