Birthday trip of a lifetime with my 80 year old mother.

5 sur septembre 25, 2016

I cannot say enough about how kind and gracious Sheila Chaffin was to accommodate my sweet Southern Belle of a mother! The Hassinger-Daniels mansion is a beautiful work of art in whose rooms I could just spend hours soaking up all of the history and beauty. It is in a place like this that one feels all of the nostalgia of memories made, and makes ones own memories as well. Each room is wonderful; not sure I could pick a favorite! The cool use of space in this jewel of an estate is very creative! I took Mother to the recommended Highland Grill right behind the mansion for the start of our trip. Noted chef Frank Stitts created a wonderful expletive for us from soup to dessert. We were going to Destin, Florida and didn't have reservations for our return trip as i thought would be doing a straight 8 hour drive. But my mother was so enchanted by this place that she asked to leave Florida one day early just to stay here. Luckily Sheila was able to accommodate our last minute decision and we ate at Frank Stitts sister restaurant right next to Highland Grill called Chex Fonfon. More casual, but great servers and best burger I think I've ever had. But I must give kudos to the best breakfast! Sheila and her staff create an ornate and delicious dining table experience that makes one want to stay and converse with the other guests! My mother was in Heaven getting to talk with people from other states and countries. She can hold court with delightful and interesting conversation, and this is the neat kind of entertainment and hospitality you can count on her at Sheila's divine bed and breakfast! Thank you Sheila, for making your home so welcome to my sweet Mother, and God bless you for allowing all of us to experience a place like this!

Very nice BnB. Great value, Sheila and her assistant were great. Food was even better. Only complaint was a shelf in the shower was cracked and had sharp edges and should be repaired. Very close to downtown area.

impressive antiques!!

5 sur septembre 21, 2016

We ended up being upgraded to Hassinger Daniels Mansion! We arrived after dark -- the house was all lit up and looked like an enchanted castle from the outside. It is beautifully restored and filled with antiques, fresh flowers, and various mementos of old times. It exudes a blend of opulence and cuteness -- true to the Victorian spirit. My son especially loved the antique toys -- a collection of carousels, rocking horse, dollhouse. We stayed in "Enchanted Turret" -- two comfortable beds, satin sheets, lovely leather furniture, amazing crystal chandelier, stucco decorations on the ceiling, a meticulously clean bathroom. Windows did not have curtains though and the door to the hallway had a window pane at the very top letting light in -- so this room might not be for you if you like sleeping in a dark room.

Réponse du propriétaire
HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB. ENCHANTING TURRET "Honeymoon Suite". This was a professional woman guest with her young son. We loved the descriptive comments and that the Mansion looked "like an enchanted castle from the outside". All praise is appreciated, we'll tell our housekeeping staff. One note--there are pull down shades on the window, perhaps we didn't explain that to the guests. There are clerestory windows at top of hall doors but we turn off the crystal chandelier near this door each night and keep our lights on the stairwells up for safety reasons. We hope they'll come again. THANK YOU for taking the time to write a review! Sheila

Girls' Weekend

5 sur septembre 21, 2016

Great get-away with friends. We stayed at Hassinger-Daniels Mansion and really enjoyed it. Convenient to many restaurants, great front porch for just 'sitting and visiting", exceptionally clean and Shelia was a great hostess.

Réponse du propriétaire
HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB. This group of traveling friends for a Reunion were a delight. They went on outtings and explored the region, sampled the many tastes and beverages in our surrounding historic district's 41 restaurants, and sat out on the wrap-around Victorian porch catching the evening breeze. We're so glad we met you. Please come again! Sheila

Nice b & b

3,6 sur septembre 11, 2016

I was given an upgrade to the H-D mansion so this review is about that property. The service was great. Breakfast was just okay, and some of the angels-and-unicorns decor was a little creepy. Don't stay here unless you really like pink.

Réponse du propriétaire
HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB. Probably SERAFIM ROOM. We don't have unicorns but there are some carved Serafims (angels in literature) in the Serafim Room and it has a pink décor. There are other rooms with differing colors, decors and features. All rooms sleep 2 guests, some sleep 3 guests (Vulcan Vista, Blue Serenity) and some sleep 4 guests (Southern Belle and Enchanting Turret. Breakfast is hot full breakfast served in the beautiful dining room under a crystal chandelier on fine china with crystal goblets. Guests often comment this is their favorite part of the stay compared to other hotels. Thank you for being our guest.

Cute.... maybe a bit too cute... Is that possible?

It's certainly an extraordinary house. Learning the history of the house was very cool. But if you're expecting to stay in a turn of the century house with turn of the century furnishings and decoration, you might be disappointed. There are certainly historic elements that have been preserved (you can see the original wallpaper and lighting switches in some rooms) but the decor is a little over the top, and certainly not "period." But it's fun. The owners certainly did a masterful job restoring, and it appears they had a lot of fun in decorating. I'd have liked breakfast better if it had been a buffet but... it was fine. Many thanks to Miss Sheila for her wonderful service, though--you will not find a more delightful host!

We appreciate your praise that "it's certainly an extraordinary house" and a "masterful job in restoring". The Alabama Historic Commission had it on their "most in peril" list in danger of destruction as we bought it and started the 4 year restoration project that followed. Historians and local families are helping us to describe the history of the place and its significance. It was built by the President of the Iron Company at the time when those owning and operating iron, steel, coal, lumber and rail road were the business leaders of the SE. Some guest rooms are period décor (Victorian Chamber, Garden View, Southern Belle, Vulcan Vista), some are fantasy themes (Camelot, Serafim, Peacock), some are unique themes (Enchanting Turret, Blue Serenity) and one is very modern (Hera's Loft). Something for every kind of taste! Please come again. THANK YOU for being our guest.

Home away from home

I come to Birmingham on a regular basis for work. Finding Sheila and Ira's Bed and Breakfast has made the stay so much easier and relaxing. I have stayed at Cobb Lane but have stayed most recently at their other location: Hassinger Daniels.

Réponse du propriétaire
COBB LANE BB + HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB. We loved this review by a returning guests who stays at both of our Inns. This means they like their surroundings, it is convenient for their business in the City, and they feel at home. Exactly what our management goal is. Thank you for writing the review and for being our guest.

Lovely and eccentric

4,2 sur août 23, 2016

Sheila and Ira have turned a decaying mansion into a showplace--six extraordinarily restored rooms and baths, lovely common areas and comfortable beds. Nice modern bathroom included in my room--and best of all close to a lot of interesting sites in Birmingham. Certainly a one-of-a-kind experience!

Réponse du propriétaire
COBB LANE BB. There are 7 guest bedrooms rather than 6. Close enough. We're glad you liked the location and accommodations. This 1898 Victorian Mansion was build in 1898 by the Tax Collector, then purchased and enlarged in 1908 by a Dentist turned Inventory who invented steel pipe. We invite you to come and enjoy it. Thank you for writing your review.

Cobb Lane Stay

3,6 sur août 01, 2016

We got in pretty late and left right after breakfast so we didn't have a lot of time to really enjoy the place. Cobb Lane definitely met my expectations, but I didn't really give the place a chance to exceed my expectations because of the short stay.

Réponse du propriétaire
While your stay was short, as you mentioned, we do appreciate you coming and writing your impressions. Please come again, perhaps try another room to see the place more. Often our return guests stay in all rooms over time to find their favorite. Then they sometimes try our 2nd Inn, 2 blocks away, Hassinger Daniels Mansion BB. THANK YOU!

Fantastic room

4,8 sur juillet 25, 2016

Decorated in fabulous details and enjoyed it so much. Have not got chance to try the breakfast but should also be great. But the towels need replacement.

Réponse du propriétaire
We're so pleased that you liked the details and decorations of the Victorian Mansion. After reading your comment about the towels, we checked at that time, you were right that the wrong set had accidentally been put out during one shift. It was corrected. Thank you for coming.
