If you want to find out if Southern Hospitality is a reality, then a stay at the Mistletoe Bough will put any doubts to rest. From the movement you arrive you are welcomed and made to feel like family, and quickly get a new sense of appreciation for the kind of hospitality that only exists in the south. The Innkeeper (Jo Ann) literally went way above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had everything we needed and that our stay exceeded expectations.

The Mistletoe Bough B&B is located in historic Alexander City. It’s like a time machine back to simpler days where tranquilly and simplicity provide abundant relaxation. The Inn itself is a piece of art, and a true testament to craftsmanship from a bygone era. The Inn is tastefully decorated in period furniture and carefully restored to its previous splendor. The rooms are spacious, and guests have ample room to for their own enjoyment. Breakfast is served at 9:00am and was a culinary delight. It felt like being at home, but you don’t have to do the dishes.

We were there for the Alexander City Jazz Fest, which was amazing. My wife and I totally enjoyed it. We will be back, and rest assured there is only one place we will be staying.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are unique, so it depends on personal preference, but there is no bad choice.

We agree with previous reviews that it was more like staying with friends than at a regular bed and breakfast. JoAnn was a delightful and interesting hostess. The food was delicious and the room was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the Nanny Room with the private deck. We'll have great memories for many years to come of sharing a bottle of sparkling wine and relaxing on the deck overseeing the gorgeous yard. Highly recommended as a romantic get-a-way for young couples like us. We had a GREAT time! We'll definitely be back.

What a beautiful setting and house in central Alabama...ideal southern hospitality and exquisite decoration in this beautiful old home...breakfast was delicious with fresh herbs, fruits, and a yummy egg omelet and hot biscuits. You'll love just sitting on one of the home's many porches. Also close to the downtown--only a 5-10min walk to local restaurants and antique shops.

Room Tip: for a lot of space and king size bed, choose the master suite

JoAnn the owner is a real firecracker and I had a great stay here for two nights. It felt like I was staying with friends.

I had Andrea's Room and it's high ceilings and wooden floors were lovely. It was expansive yet cozy.

With a gas heater, small TV, sofa and soft chairs to sink into. The bathroom is long and skinny but efficient.

A hot drinks station is outside on the landing. The off-street parking is a definite bonus.

The breakfasts JoAnn comes up with are fantastic. In fact, if I lived in town I would come over for breakfast regularly.

Stay here when you want to see the Wellborn Musclecar Museum and Russell Lands.

I highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Andrea's room was lovely with a bathroom smothered in sweet peas.

You could feel the love that Jo Ann has for her beautiful home. Then you can see that love in all of the attention to every little detail that has been personally addressed. Her love of Sweetpeas and Wisteria show up not only in the stunning place settings at the table but the great paintings and pictures that adorn the rooms. That is just some of the delightful icing on the cake of this splendid home. Even though it was winter the gardens were great, with the camelias glowing like rubies. The breakfast was beyond delicious and served as though we were celebrities. Oh yes, the beds were great too.
