This home is perfect for Snow Birds or couple reunions,we even have small weddings on our beach. Each bedroom has its own private bath.

The kitchen is equipped with GE Monogram stainless appliances. It is a cooks' delight with gas cooktop/griddle/grill,wine/beverage cooler, separate ice maker ,double refrigerator.Granite counter tops and travertine floors. 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. Owners are Licensed Real Estate Agents in the State of Alabama.

About Owner/Manager

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.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner/Manager chose Magnolia Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes sorry for the stairs, but when you're on the bay the houses have to be up in the air.(hurricanes you know) Maybe one day we can put an elevator in.Thanks for letting me know about the leaky plumbing issue,plumber is there today..Please come again and enjoy our Shangri-Log

Big Bang for the Buck!

  • 5 of 5
My family walked in, and said OMG!! :) It's a very spacious and impressive log home indeed, with great water views and a massive deck. Family members of all ages loved the private boat dock, pier, and beach. We also liked the country feel with very low traffic, yet the home is less than 15 minutes from all major grocery stores, restaurants, etc. in the lovely town of Fairhope--which is also worth a visit. We didn't have to spend any of our vacation time fighting traffic, lines, or crowds, which we consider a WINNER! Inside the home, we loved the expansive great room, pool table, well-equipped kitchen, and the privacy of the bedrooms. We highly recommend this property, and plan to return ourselves.

We really enjoyed our stay at this site. It offered spacious areas to relax and enjoy. This house was provided many things that we didn't expect, especially in the kitchen area. The only down side to me was the 9 am check out time. I think that is very unrealistic, especially when you are traveling with a group of 8-10.
