“Nothing's Changed; Still Outstanding!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2010

It's been more than 10 years since we last stayed at Bay Breeze, but the high standards it had then....it still has! Becky and Bill Jones are still the uber congenial hosts of this homey B&B fronting on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay. Despite a hurricane several years ago, the grounds are again botanically lush with the 300' pier out into the bay having been rebuilt.

As a test after so many years I wondered if the complimentary-access-to-the-Jone's- freezer-for-ice-cream-policy was still in effect. It was. I had a huge bowl of butter pecan.

To work off those calories, the next morning I walked into town ending up on the far end of the municipal pier (almost two miles one way). Despite being located in a sort of back woods area, there was a sidewalk along the entire route making Fairhope one of the most walker-friendly spots I've visited.

Put those calories right back in my mouth just a bit later with a delicious breakfast that included fantastic sweet potato pancakes. Whodathunkit?

We'll be back!

Our cabin was clean and quiet. It was actually a mini-suite with a kitchenette. The cabin was comfortable and well furnished.

Got questions? Don’t worry. They will all be answered by the numerous signs throughout the cabin, including the one above the toilet paper outlining the precise parking instructions.

No need to set an alarm clock. The builders of the cabin thoughtfully placed a skylight directly above the head of the bed. The cheerful Alabama sun will wake you up BRIGHT and early.

Breakfast is an intimate affair. The menu is fixed and ‘adventurous’. At the crack of 8:30 you are seated elbow-to-elbow with your fellow guests. Introductions are made and a prayer is offered. Then your new BFF’s will regale you with tale after tale of their wonderful children. It is NOT for the hung-over.

The grounds are nicely landscaped. There are many nooks and crannies on the grounds, and in the main house, for reading or lounging.

Bay Breeze is directly on Mobile Bay. (In certain circles, this area of Alabama is known as the ‘East Coast’.) The sunsets are spectacular. After dark, the lights of Mobile (and the less fortunate folks on the West Coast) shimmer on the Bay. And, of course, stars occasionally fall on Alabama.

Although the beach is narrow (perhaps 70 ft from property line to property line), the pier is long. It has many areas to sit, relax and enjoy the tranquility. The pelicans swoop and the mullets jump.

The staff is polite, informative, and non-intrusive.

Soft drinks, coffee and ice cream are available 24 hours per day. You gotta love that.

Will we go back? Absolutely, but we’ll bring our own breakfast.

We and another couple stayed 3 nights. You immediately feel welcome by Becky and Bill. Each of the three breakfasts were absolutely wonderful and she accommodated one person in our party who is allergic to cheese and eggs. She sets a beautiful table, has lots of recommendations and gives interesting tidbits about the town. We had the Camellia Room and the other couple, the Azalea Room. Although a bit dated, it is clean, filled with antiques and very cozy. We moved on to the Magnolia Springs B&B, and the difference is the hosts---you felt so welcomed and relaxed at Bay Breeze. Their home sits on Mobile Bay and you can walk to the pier and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

We had a great stay at this Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in one of the cottages, which was like a full apartment, with bedroom, pull out sofa, and comfortable bathroom. The place was immaculately clean and well kept up. The hosts were lovely and had no problem with my bringing my dog, who loved sniffing around the property. We loved walking down the dock and looking out at Mobile Bay. The breakfast was delicious. We wish we could have stayed longer!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Breeze. Becky was very helpful and accomodating (and the Breakfast was Fantastic!). Additionally, the gardens and pier our worth your while exploring.
