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

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
