The whole bed and breakfast is so perfectly themed it's like stepping back in time! Beds are comfy and we might even be back in 1 day it was so fantastic. True southern hospitality at its finest - although it was weird we turned up at 8 with no host to be seen. Makes you feel safe having keys stuck... More

My wife and I arrived at the Cobb Lane Bed and Breakfast, contacted the innkeeper by phone, and were informed that she "had things to do" and so could not possibly personally check us in. After some confusion, we found the keys where she had hidden them and proceeded to a basement room, even though I had asked for street... More

We went here a few years ago while going to the Classic Alabama St. vs Alabama A&M. The service was great we all ate at the big table and share where we were from and learned some history about the place and Birmingham.

Cobb Lane is a beautiful, historic home well situated in the Five Points South area of Birmingham (near UAB). My husband and I spent a night in the Periwinkle Room, which features a nifty wedding dress and a light atmosphere (white wicker and painted metal and wood, white ceramics, etc.). It was a very comfortable place to stay for the... More

My partner and I had a great experience at Cobb Lane. Specifically, we stayed in the Camelot and then the Enchanting Turret rooms in the Daniel Hassinger home. Sheila is a rockstar that manages both properties and truly turns it into an excellent experience. Visit this place if you can, it's a hidden gem. The horses and room themes were... More

We appreciate the praise of these guests. Bed and Breakfasts are different from chain hotels and frequently offer a different travel experience for guests. I'm an architect and city planner, my husband is a professional artist sculptor. That means we enjoy renovating and restoring historic sites then establishing viable community businesses. We offer lodging, weddings and receptions, and sculpture lessons... More

Great place to stay if you have always wanted to sleep in a museum. At every turn, there are interesting photos and artifacts, beautiful old furniture, very colourful rooms and interesting art. The home is an easy walk to the UAB campus, some interesting old residential areas and the restaurants and bars of the Five Points Area. The breakfast was... More

My husband and I came for a short get-a-way and had been interested in going to a bed and breakfast because we've never been before. When we arrived, the door was locked. A guest greeted us, but told us she couldn’t let us in and that we would have to call the owner for a key. We did as instructed... More

My husband & I stayed in the Zebra Room which had a separate entrance at the back of the house. We met Ira on arrival and he explained that the AC in that room couldn't be altered and it did tend to run a little cold, however a space heater was provided which we did make use of. The room... More

We appreciate all of our guests coming which produces income from which mortgages and utilities can be paid after restoring a property back into a tax paying beneficial service.
