This bed and breakfast is a gem! Wendy was warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived and gave us great recommendations on where to eat that nice. Port and snacks were offered upon our arrival. Our room was absolutely beautiful and the fabulous breakfast was made even better by the lovely conversation with Wendy and the other guest in... More

From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Wendy and Beaux (the chow) we knew we were in a special place. The Victorian house is magnificent and our bedroom (Mobile Bay) on the ground floor (First floor in the US) was stunning and comfortable. Guests are free to use all of the downstairs facilities including partaking of the free... More

Wendy is over the top as a warm and welcoming host. Her breakfasts are to die for and her history lessons about the house and Mobile are treasures. The rooms are large and comfortable.; great beds. Every piece of furniture and accessory takes you back to a wonderfully romantic time. A glass of sherry and hone made brownie are perfect... More

My husband and I only only stayed for one night, but we could not have picked a better B&B. The house is absolutely lovely, as are the hosts. The breakfast of praline pecan french toast, eggs, sausage, and fruit was delicious. There is free parking, Wifi, and it is close to the downtown area approximately 2 miles away. The owner's...

We have been B&B enthusiasts for 30+ years and The Kate Shepard House has surpassed all we have ever visited! Wendy is a fabulous Innkeeper and also a very accomplished chef. Breakfast each morning was a culinary masterpiece! The atmosphere throughout the home is warm, inviting and immaculately clean. We stayed for three nights (originally had planned on only two)...

I had the opportunity to stay 2 nights (one in each direction) and found Wendy, Bill and Bo to be gracious and welcoming. The B&B is very comfortable and the breakfasts were truly delicious. Please try this delightful place

Very beautiful old home with loving restoration in an interesting neighborhood not far from downtown. The onsite owner is gracious and helpful. The private in-room bath was spacious and the lighting was good. Our room was beside a surprisingly busy street but the noise did not bother us. There was a white noise machine in the room if you need... More

What a gorgeous, well-maintained B&B in an historic part of town. The owner, Wendy James, is charming and really made us feel at home, even coming out to the car to greet us upon our arrival. Our room was beautiful, filled with antiques, and you can just tell that she really loves what she does because it was a wonderful... More
