This wonderfully restored historic home features exquisite detail in the traditional period architecture. A Steinway from the late 1800's graces the parlor. The guest rooms are very nicely done and the bedding is comfortable! Wendy is a perfect hostess and shares the rich history of the home and the historical family ties of the original owner over a fabulous breakfast.... More

Our stay was very enjoyable. Wendy was a very gracious inn keeper. She was very welcoming and made you feel right at home! Her recommendation for dinner venue was exactly what we were looking for. Breakfast was wonderful, the praline pecan french toast was unforgettable. The history of the house told by Wendy was fascinating. Highly recommend staying here if... More

I stayed at the Kate Shepard House Bed and Breakfast from January 2nd to January 5th of 2015, and all I can say is that this place is simply amazing. I will never stay at a hotel when my travels take me to Mobile because staying at the Kate Shepard was comparable to staying at a good friend's house. Wendy... More

My husband and I have been doing a road trip through the south of the US and we stayed at the Kate Shepard House Bed and Breakfast for one night when we were in Mobile. On our arrival we were greeted by Wendy, the owner and our host for the evening. I can't say enough nice things about Wendy. We'd... More

A delightful stop over enroute to New Orleans. Beautiful home on the historic register beautifully furnished and super comfortable. Wendy is a gracious host who has thought of everything including sherry or port in the sitting room before going out to dinner. We wish we had more days here to enjoy this home as well as Mobile AL that has... More

I decided to stay at a B&B on this trip to Mobile as my last stay at one of the hotels off Airport Blvd was not the greatest. I am SO HAPPY I chose The Kate Shepard House! Wendy is the most gracious hostess! First, she meets me at the car to help with the luggage. I then meet the... More

This B&B is a jewel! Warm, cozy and very clean rooms made for a comfortable stay. Fresh delicious cookies were available in late afternoon as we arrived. Breakfast was ready just minutes after we descended to the dining room. Our gracious hostess gave us a history of the house while enjoying a delightful breakfast soufflé complete with audio and visual... More

Having stayed in several bed and breakfasts over the years I feel that I have a good basis for comparison and this bed and breakfast is lovely. All of the rooms are clean and as you stop and look around each room you are surrounded with beautiful furniture and appointments that take you back to a very different day and... More

We grew up 3 doors down from this historic memory in the 70's. Wendy and Bill have done a great job in restoring the old gal. Wendy is quite the Innkeeper. She even invited the neighbor who has lived in our old house for 2 decades over the visit- so nice. The breakfast was as good as any Brennan option... More

My wife and I were travelling through Mobile as part of our Gulf Coast trip from Florida to Texas in September 2009 (sorry for the late review) and didn't really know where to stay (being from London and clueless). We found Kate Shepherd House recommended on another website and decided to email them to find out if they had availability... More
