We visited there in April of 2015 overnight on our way to New Orleans. What a great place! Wendy is fabulous with a lot of knowledge about the area and things around them. She recommended several places to eat when we got there and could even give us price ranges and hours. I'll be honest, we picked this place because... More

What an amazing house and amazing hosts! My wife and I are in our early thirties and came into town for a concert in Mobile. We had such a great time at this bed and breakfast! The house is very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nice and quiet. Breakfast was more than enough and delicious! If we go... More

I don't think I have ever reviewed a property that had a perfect 5-star rating from every guest. Let me add another one! The Kate Shepard House is a beautiful Victorian and so full of history. It is incredibly well maintained. It sits on a beautiful street in a charming neighborhood with a wealth of southern vegetation. Wendy and Bill... More

The owner operator , Wendy, is a delight to visit with during breakfast , and she makes the most amazing breakfast you will ever have anywhere in the world I... More

My wife and I first visited here in the summer of 2008. We've been coming back at least once a year ever since, and it is one of our favorite retreats. It's always peaceful and clean, and the breakfast is outstanding! And it's in a great part of Mobile, conveniently close to downtown and lots of neat restaurants, yet quietly... More

I have never had the pleasure of staying in a B&B and now I feel ruined in a great way. Wendy and Bill have fulfilled the dream of being able to get away for some true rest and relaxation in an atmosphere that has the comforts of the best home away from home. I normally would miss my dogs but... More

We picked The Kate Shepard House based on information we found on the internet. That was a lucky find!! We spent three nights there, starting March 10. Without doubt, we can say that the house was perfect, the breakfasts better than perfect and the innkeeper extraordinary. We have stayed at many B and Bs over the years, and this is... More

Loved staying here and talking with Wendy and the other guests. Best Bed and Breakfast we've ever experienced. Loved the history of the house also. Mobile has some interesting places to visit and Wendy can steer you in the right direction.

My wife and I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before coming to the Kate Shepard house. I do not have other experiences to compare this to, however, I can say that this was among the most pleasant traveling experiences of my life, if not the very best. Bill, Wendy, and Beaux (their fun Chow) are the greatest... More

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Kate Shephard House. The house itself is fascinating, with gorgeous woodwork and stained glass windows and decorated with period pieces to match the Victorian era. Our room, the Barber room on the second floor, was light and airy, with a comfortable bed and a huge slipper tub in the... More
