There isn't a more perfect spot to stay while exploring this beautiful bay town of Fairhope Alabama, This b&b has been totally rebuilt with every detail in mind, and it has been family owned and operated for generations. The people could not have been more friendly and helpful and the house overlooks the bay. With an upstairs wrap-around porch....just steps... More

My husband and I were in need of some get away time to our selves. We only live a couple of hours away from Fairhope and decided this was our destination. From the call ahead to Emma's the welcome greeting and the lovely stay we were relaxed and off to a good start for our summer. The lovely ladies who... More

My wife and I cannot say enough about our stay!! From the view of the bay to the convenience/access to town and food as well as the hospitality of the ladies at Emma's...... We cannot wait to return for another stay as the price was well worth it and the comfort of the rooms made us not want to leave.

We had a wonderful 5-day visit at Emma's. The house is beautiful. Our comfortable and well-appointed room had a gorgeous bay view and the spacious balcony was right outside our door. Our hosts Betty, Michelle and Cindy couldn't have been more welcoming. Breakfast was delicious. The charming city of Fairhope is only 6 blocks away and the municipal pier is... More

We needed a weekend away. Our home is only an hour away, but, Fairhope is such an amazing, unique place, it's the perfect weekend jaunt. This B&B is beautiful. The large building is really updated. The room we had was large and very well decorated. Loved the 10 inch baseboards, multiple crown molding and the bed and linens were amazing.... More

Our room is so comfortable, our view is beautiful, the ladies who run the inn are charming, breakfast was decadent. It is adjacent to a lovely bay front park with plenty of trail room for exercise. Fairhope must be one of the most charming small cities in the world, with flowers everywhere and lots of quaint shops. We'll definitely return.

My wife and I visited Fairhope for the first time during a driving trip to Florida, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Emma's. Emma's is located right along the bay, near the long, public pier, and has a spectacular view of the water. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. We stayed... More

We would HIGHLY recommend Emma's Bayhouse! Location, accommodations, breakfast, personal service, atmosphere----it was delightful. Fairhope is a charming destination and this inn will make your stay memorable. Located on the Bay and next to the long, beautiful park and pier---Emma's was the perfect setting for the delightful 4th of July concert and fireworks celebration!! Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

Emma's Bay House sits on the edge of Mobile Bay and has spectacular views of the waterfront and Fairhope pier. It is an idyllic position in a quaint little town and for that alone it is worth visiting. Top that all off with stunning rooms, scrummy breakfasts (especially Betty's scrambled eggs which my husband particularly loved) and delightful hosts and... More
