To borrow a song title from the Johnny Mathis concert we were in Birmingham to see...It's Wonderful, wonderful...Shelia and Ira made our stay very special. We will be back!!! Beautiful room and furniture, a visual feast. Ira can whip up a great breakfast in no time and the conversation at the table is easy. The location is perfect, easy to get to and close to downtown B'ham. We stayed at the mansion behind Chik-fil-a on 20th St. Great hosts, Shelia and Ira are the best. Thanks Tom and Kay
We enjoyed this coupled very much who stayed at our newly opened 2nd BB, the HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BED AND BREAKFAST, near the Highland Bar and Grill, Chez Fon Fon, Bottega, Hot N Hot Fish Club, and Ocean's fine dining restaurants in the Five Points Historic District. Their enthusiastic and positive reaction to our difficult 3 year National Historic registered property restoration really made it all worth while. Thank you for your kind words! Please come again soon.

Cobb Lane is a charming B & B with knowledgeable, helpful owners who worked with us to accommodate our rather strict schedule. The location was very expedient to the downtown area and having parking on site was wonderfully convenient! The breakfast was delicious and a nice start to a busy day.
Our mid-day guests are usually going to early business meetings at the University of Alabama Birmingham, the Financial District, or are patients of the nearby hospitals and need slightly different breakfast times and/or menus. We enjoyed meeting these guests very much. Thank you for taking the moment to write.
