THe best date night ever. We loved the house and walked through to explore. Shelia is the best hostess. She is so knowledgeable about the house and the area and shared some great stories with us. Is was so convenient to go to Botega up the road and The Alabama Theater for a concert. The breakfast was outstanding and interesting to share with the other guests. We can't wait to come back and enjoy a different room. Thank you so much for making a great memory for us.

Owner and staff were very accommodating to our needs and made us feel right at home. We will be staying with them again as soon as possible. Thanks for making our time in Birmingham so enjoyable.

My wife and I enjoyed a one night getaway at the beautiful Cobb Lane Bed and Breakfast. Sheila was more than happy to take care of questions I had before making reservations, which was easy to do on their online reservation system. Most rooms have descriptions and images on their website, and Sheila sent me additional information for rooms that did not. Parking was provided, which was nice since it is within walking distance of 5-points. Upon arrival, a quick phone call to Sheila, and I was directed to keys, given a quick tour of the first floor, guided to my room, and was told I could come and go as I pleased. I stayed in the Bird of Paradise room. The professional photos on the website were very accurate. The room was very comfortably furnished with antiques, and had a clean modern bathroom. The bed was warm and pretty comfortable. The next morning, Sunday, breakfast was served at 9:00 sharp. Ira had prepared a delicious meal of sausage, scrambled eggs, gourmet blueberry bread, fresh fruit, OJ, and coffee. We enjoyed our breakfast with a pleasant conversation with Ira and another couple that had stayed the night. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

This was our first experience at a B&B and Sheila and staff made sure we would never forget it. Sheila went above and beyond our expectatitons to make sure our arrangements were in order and that we had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed pleasant conversations with Sheila and other guests. Sheila made an effort to get to know everyone, and has a great memory! We stayed in Hera's Loft. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean, and had a great view to "people watch" from a private balcony. We will definitely be back.

The mansion is absolutely beautiful. Sheila and Ira were very gracious hosts. The bathrooms need to be updated with modern facilities. I found the shower to be very uncomfortable and very disappointing.

We really enjoyed our stay. The B&B was great. Great job restoring the house. Furniture and decor outstanding. Rooms did not have individual air conditioning so we had to open window to help regulate temperature but were able to keep temperature comfortable. Little noisy with restaurants, clubs, etc nearby but was not a problem Parking lot a little small.

This was our first visit to a true B&B and to Birmingham. A family member was getting married so many of us opted to stay at the B&B versus a chain hotel. We ALL loved the experience. We were actually upgraded to the mansion that is also owned by Sheila. The rooms were gorgeous, comfortable, and SO very clean. Sheila is extremely friendly, hospitable, and professional. We look forward to another Birmingham trip to stay either at the Cobb Lane or Hassinger Mansion B&B!
