We are on a tour of the south and at this point decided that we'd like to see Mobile. Wendy and Bill had one room left with our notice of 2 days. We are so blessed to have found their lovely home and the town. Best night of sleep on our entire trip of 3 weeks. Now on our way... More

I made my way to Mobile for an industry conference, and due to the timing of the event (Right on the heels of Mardi Gras) and my tardiness in booking a room, my options were few and far between. When I finally stumbled on Wendy and the Kate Shepard House B&B, I was equal parts relieved and enthusiastic: She had... More

The house is a southern gem...Wendy welcomed us graciously even though we arrived a few hours before scheduled check-in. The neighborhood is beautiful. It is close to downtown and great restaurants. Wendy provided restaurant recommendations and helped us with places to see. The breakfasts were delicious...especially the Pecan Praline French Toast.

This is a wonderful historic, intimate and friendly B&B, with great access to downtown Mobile. The B&B, which is located on a beautiful side street near downtown, has only three rooms- so book early. Wendy, the innkeeper, couldn't be more welcoming or friendly. Available the moment we arrived, she provided excellent recommendations to local Mobile restaurants, places to see, a... More

"Elegant, historically authentic setting", "exquisitely crafted, gourmet breakfasts", and "genuine warmth in the friendly hospitality" are a small sampling of our thoughts as we left Mobile. We actually stayed an extra night just to luxuriate in the comfort and nurturing environment created by owners, Wendy and Bill. This stately, old home stands alone in her loving and professional restoration; much... More

All reviews on this B&B have been dead on; Mrs. Wendy and the Kate Shepard House are true Southern Gems. I cannot speak more highly of this B&B and its owner.  It was an all around 5 STAR Stay!  The house was a phenomenal piece of work, the rooms large and welcoming! The beds were extremely comfortable, the claw foot... More

Terrific hostess with warm welcome and great attention to every detail. Wendy told of the priceless collection of letters and documents found in the attic which span over 100 years of history in the South. Food was wonderful. I cannot say enough nice things about our stay except this will be our home of choice when in Mobile.

After talking to Wendy, clear instructions were left of how to gain access. Our room was the Barber Suite which was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. The house itself is beautiful historic mansion with lots of character and period features. We were able to wonder round the house before breakfast and discover its history. Wendy the owner is as charming... More

My wife and I spent one night at this B&B and had a wonderful experience. The home is beautiful and has much history. I have not been to many B&B's but couldn't have been more comfortable than if I would have been at my own home. Wendy the owner/operator was unbelievably accommodating and really made us feel welcomed and at... More
