A fun Staycation

4.6 on February 03, 2016

We stayed at the Hassinger Daniels mansion recently with friends for an in town vacation. Tons of fun was had by all. Ira and Sheila were gracious hosts and the food was fantastic. The bed in our room (Victorian) was the only downside. Very 'creaky' and the mattress had a distinct valley in the middle. Good thing we love each other! The lock on our room was also not a true lock as it could be opened with any key ( we found out by accident). The inn was exceptionally clean and we will return again - just maybe try a different room.


Absolutely Lovely!

Stayed there overnight while on a business trip. The owners were friendly and engaging. The home was beautifully decorated, and the room was comfortable, clean, and just lovely. The breakfast was GREAT!!


Greatest Experience

5 on January 26, 2016

My fiance and I started at The Hassinger Mansion on Jan 22 for the first time and it was beautiful. We loved the Camelot theme room and breakfast was amazing the next morning. We enjoyed so much that we are planning to be there for July 4th. I would give 10 stars!


Perfect location!

My husband and I decided to stay in Birmingham for the night and Cobb Lane was the perfect location for us to explore the surrounding areas. Sheila is a great host who knows her history of this charming town. Great service and beautiful accommodations!


Perfect Getaway in Downtown Birmingham

5 on December 24, 2015

I had my nine-year-old daughter with me for a doctor's appointment the next morning. We wanted something easily accessible to downtown, but something different that would lift our spirits. It was a beautiful, magical B&B. The owners were very hospitable and kind. Great for couples or a simple getaway. I highly recommend!


My time at Cobb

a fantasy

5 on December 15, 2015

In Birmingham for the Mutt-cracker performance and decided to treat myself to a fantasy night in an enchanting victorian Manson. It was lovely and lived up to my expectations.


Awesome Bed and Breakfast!!!

Beautiful Victorian mansion with wonderful host and comfortable accommodations!! This is my second time staying there, and I plan on staying there everytime I come to Birmingham!! The breakfast is home cooked and delicious, and she even has wonderful little treats if you get hungry in the night :)


"Cozy bed and breakfast"

5 on December 10, 2015

We wish we could have stayed longer. We loved our large suite on the 3rd floor. It is in the heart of the city which makes it easy to walk to restaurants. The Christmas decorations were beautiful.


Hassinger Daniels House

3.6 on November 29, 2015

Second stay at second house owned by same couple. Good deal with previous stay coupon. House is well-kept, although bed could be more comfortable and breakfast is average. Hosts are pleasant and attentive. Location near bars and restaurants in Highland is good. Seating guests would have encouraged conversations and interaction.
