Winston Place Bed & Breakfast

353 Railroad Avenue , Valley Head, AL 35989 USA (Show map)


Step back in time to one of Alabama's most beautiful historical mansions, featuring large verandas and elegant inn lodging accommodations. Now you can rent the whole house for your family or group vacation. Situated at the base of Lookout Mountain and only two miles from downtown Mentone, Winston Place is centrally located between Chattanooga, Birmingham, and Atlanta. On the National Register of Historic Places, this inn's impressive lavishness of the veranda porches, is undoubtedly one of the state's finest examples of how the master builders planned for open air living made possible in ante-bellum days.

The house and grounds are beautiful and so full of history. Mr. Bunch was a great host and made us feel so welcome. Breakfast was incredible. Just what we were looking for...a beautiful and relaxing mother daughter retreat! We would love to visit Winston Place again!

So Glad We Stayed Here

Winston Place had been recommended to me as the nicest place to stay in the area. I'm thrilled that we listened. I will stay here next year on my return to Valley Head. Jim couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. He clearly is proud to be the proprietor of Winston Place. The place is old (That's not a bad thing, it was built a long time ago.) and not modern. The floors creak and slant in places. It is, however, very nice and the bed was very comfortable. There are tvs in the rooms as well as wifi. Jim's breakfasts were outstanding. Again, I'm glad I stayed here.

southern hospitality

An antique, kinda quirky, but cool place in northeast Alabama. A shrine to an all-American Crimson Tide football player, as well. But the best part, the southern hospitality of Faye, our hostess. She is everything you would want in a hostess.
