Had a great experience here, and would highly recommend. We stayed in the Hera's Loft Room, which is in the Hassinger Daniels Mansion. The room and mansion were well maintained and cared for, and the room had all the basic hotel amenities that would be expected. Sheila met us at the mansion to accommodate our 11 am arrival, allowing us to check in to our room well ahead of the 3 pm check-in time. Breakfast was delicious, and the location couldn't be better. The mansion is directly behind the Highlands restaurant, allowing us a leisurely stroll to dinner and back.
Decided to stay at a b&b just for fun and found this charming place right in the middle of everything. The host is a very sweet lady who makes sure you are attended to. The home itself is a sight in itself and fun to look at all the changes and history that this place has been through. Stay at this place if you are in Birmingham and you will not be disappointed.
We stayed in Hera's Loft at the Hassinger Daniels mansion. We had an opportunity to see the empty rooms. Each room is very unique. Breakfast was amazing! We do recommend bringing your own bedroom pillows. Although our room was filled with decorative pillows, the actual sleeping pillows were flat.
Sheila was such a gracious host, and the house is beautiful. It looks like it's out of a museum. Only small complaint was that the room was too hot, but Sheila came in and brought fans and made sure the vents were circulating properly, and the room did cool down. Would recommend staying here if you are visiting Birmingham!
My oldest daughter and I stayed at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion in the Elegant Turret room with my granddaughter and boy did she feel like a true princess! All she could talk about was the castle! It was a truly memorable moment for her and I am so thankful for that. Breakfast was wonderful and an enjoyable dining experience for a nearly theee year old little girl. She thought she was Belle! He following week my younger daughter stayed in the Zevra room and had just as pleasant an experience. This room is located at the Cobb Lane location. The staff and owner treated like family which made me feel so much better being so far from home. We will definitely stay here from now on every visit to Birmingham.
This magnificent Southside mansion was thankfully saved from the wrecking ball and is now a beautifully restored bed and breakfast, with a little "extra:" the basement is home to the owner's carousel animal carving school! Owners and staff are friendly and helpful. I love the Southside location. The renowned restaurant Highlands Bar and Grill is located right across a parking lot. The breakfasts are mediocre, but who cares when you're staying in "The Peacock Room," so called because there is an enormous taxidermists peacock standing over your bed with tail unfurled!
My sweetheart and I had a lovely stay at Cobb Lane Bed and Breakfast. Our room was charming and clean as could be. Our hostess was very welcoming, and the breakfast was huge and delicious. I highly recommend it!
We enjoyed the accommodations, food, and breakfast conversation with our fellow B&B folk. The area is quite accessible on foot and has great dining options within a short walk. I'd definitely consider staying at Cobb Lane B&B again.
We enjoyed staying at this quaint B & B. The decor was nostalgic and very well done. The only thing I would caution about is a weekend stay, when the nearby bar (with a band) stays open until 2 am playing music.
My husband treated me with an overnight stay at Hassinger Daniels Bed & Breakfast. What a GORGEOUS home! We stayed in Hera's Loft on the top floor. Our room was beautiful, romantic, and cozy. The next morning we ate a delicious breakfast off of Wedgewood China. I would highly recommend this exquisite and charming home!!!
We received an upgrade to a larger room with no extra charge due to a cancellation. Unfortunately the air conditioner was not working on the new room, which we didn't realize until late at night. The owner was very helpful in getting us new rooms which were delightful and well cooled. First thing the next morning, she had air conditioning repair men on site. Would definitely stay here again! Delicious breakfast!
The Hassinger-Daniels Mansion is the sister B&B to the Cobb Lane. My mother (83), sister and I stayed two nights in early June to attend the National Senior Games. We highly recommend this B&B. Our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The initial communication was excellent. Sheila was present to greet us upon our arrival. She is very personable and took the time to orient us not only to the B&B, but also the local area. Her and her husband's passion for architectural restoration blended with fine hospitality shines throughout every aspect of this B&B. We stayed in the Blue Serenity Room. This room was plenty comfortable for the three of us. It is on the third floor, however the stairs were no problem for any of us...limit your luggage! Our breakfast was freshly prepared and served promptly at the designated time each morning. The breakfast table was exquisitely set. The history of this home and the Chaffin's 2012 restoration is beautifully documented through a series of artifacts and pictorial albums. The Five-Points historic district in which this B&B is located is walkable with a wide variety of restaurant choices. We'll certainly look forward to our return to the Hassinger-Daniels B&B.
My husband and I spent our wedding night here in the Zebra room. The room was beautiful and just right for a honeymoon. Sheila was the perfect hostess! We were late to breakfast so it may be that our food had been kept warm. I highly recommend Cobb Lane B&B. You won't be disappointed. It was a lovely stay!
This is second summer staying at Hassinger Daniels Mansion (same owners as Cobb). Fantastic. Beautiful restoration. Great location at Five Points. Great hostess -- Sheila has wonderful stories and makes sure all details are seen to during your stay. Breakfast guests were intriguing and fun. Hats off the chef...breakfast was delicious! You can hear other guests at times through the doors, but nothing to ruin your stay. Would definitely return.
Lot of obvious nice items, and subtlest items like shower curtains with impressions Lots of China and it is used, cookies, drinks, ice at no extra charge 10 restaurants within wAlking distance Nicer area in town. The Vulcan is close by. Other attractions close by
We spent two nights at the Harriso--Daniels B&B, owned by the same people that own Cobb Lane, and right around the corner. It's a beautifully restored 1898 Queen Anne Victorian mansion. Make sure to ask Sheila, the Inn Keeper, to tell you the fascinating of how they saved this beautiful and historic home from destruction.
I loved the old architecture at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion! I stayed there one night while I was in town for a concert and I stayed in Hera's Loft. It was easy to contact the host and check in and out of the bed and breakfast. It was also central to everything I wanted to do in Birmingham! I recommend staying at Hassinger Daniels Mansion especially over a generic hotel!
My wife and I really enjoyed our brief stay, only one night. The house is amazing and Shiela is a fantastic host and very friendly. It's a great value too considering the price of a boring hotel with lousy breakfast. I'm sure we will be back we need to try her other property next... Mark & Sharon
