First Time B&B Vacation

4.0 on September 01, 2014

My husband and I were given the gift of a weekend getaway/honeymoon by his parents. They booked us two nights at the Berney Fly Bed and Breakfast. We were both a bit apprehensive about staying in someone's home with other guests in such close quarters, but we were pleasantly surprised! The innkeeper, Stephen, was very pleasant and knowledgeable about Mobile. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast. My favorite was the oatmeal banana pancakes! We really enjoyed the home like feel of the house. The pool, jacuzzi, and backyard are beautiful! The locale is great... There are many restaurants and shops close by. We highly recommend trying this cozy bed and breakfast if you are in the Mobile area!

This was the first time my wife and I stayed at a bed and breakfast. the experience we had while staying here, will definitely make us not only choose Berney/Fly when we visit Mobile or near it. But it will make us now always consider staying at a B&B. Stephen was an outstanding host, he was always willing to accommodate and almost dared you to ask a question that he could not solve. Overall and because of our stay at Berney/Fly it truly made our 22nd wedding anniversary memorable.

A wonderful visit ....Like staying with an old friend!

I found my recent stay at the Berney Fly Bed and Breakfast most pleasurable. The antique furnishing of the house were complemented with an eclectic twist.Steven was hospitable while also giving ample privacy. I found myself right at home when he joined us (my wife & I ) for breakfast.Steven is most knowledgeable about Mobile and made a wonderful restaurant suggestion.I look forward to my next visit to Mobile and a stay at the Berney Fly Bed and Breakfast.

A Pleasant Surprise!

The Berney/Fly B&B was in walking distance of the downtown district of Mobile. The home is welcoming and comfortable with historical atmosphere. Thank you Steven.

Wonderful Trip

We recently stayed at Berney/Fly and were very pleased with the accommodations. Everything is very convenient. You can take walks through beautiful neighborhoods. The rooms are lovely, and the back yard pool area is very nice. Breakfasts were delicious. The innkeepers were very friendly. I would definitely recommend the Berney/Fly to anyone staying in the Mobile area.

Spring Break Getaway to Mobile

5 on March 28, 2013

My wife and I spent three nights on our Spring Break Getaway to Mobile. The whole vacation exceeded my expectations. The great sandy beaches of Gulf Shores, the Bellingrath Gardens, the Festival of Flowers and the Battleship Park were worth the trip, but our stay at Berney/Fly was the highlight. Stephen went above and beyond any host we have ever had at a bed & breakfast. Twice he cooked breakfast early to accommodate our schedule. Each morning he cooked something different and everything was delicious. For the first time in my life I finished all the grits on my plate and even had seconds. We walked the neighborhood and admired the huge oaks and houses. Unfortunately, we stayed in March and couldn't take advantage of the vast, nicely landscaped pool area. We did eat leftover ribs out by the pool, which Stephen was kind enough to reheat for us. I can't imagine any better lodging alternative in Mobile for the price. What a value.

Tennis Sectionals 2013 (3) night stay.

5 on March 03, 2013

I stayed (3) nights in the poolside bungalow during the Southern-Combo Sectionals (Tennis). I slept very well and was delighted with the accommodations and breakfast. The Owner/host was very accommodating and always went the extra mile to ensure that my stay was successful. I highly recommend the Berney/Fly. Also, It is an especially excellent alternative to a traditional hotel for the business traveler.

This was our second stay at Berney Fly and it was everything that we remembered it to be. The room was comfortable and clean, the breakfasts were imaginative and delicious. Steven was creative in accommodating our dietary restrictions, very friendly & helpful. The location is perfect for walking downtown. We will certainly stay here again on our next visit to Mobile.
