Current owners of this award winning bed and breakfast, Wendy and Bill, have received rave reviews for over 16 years. This 1897 architectural icon located in a beautiful historic district has a More fascinating history. Hear about the rare documents found in the attic over a full, gourmet breakfast. Close to shopping, dining, downtown activities, USS Alabama, Bellingrath Gardens and beautiful gulf coast beaches are only 1 hour away. Free parking, free WiFi and a full southern breakfast each morning. Experience Pecan Praline French Toast, voted by the State of Alabama to be one of "100 dishes you must eat before you die"! Beaux Bear, the friendly resident Chow Chow, welcomes guests and their pets in this pet friendly bed and breakfast. Less
