“My secret hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

I surprised my best friend last August with a birthday trip to Mobile and chose the Berney Fly Bed and Breakfast as our destination. The house was absolutely beautiful from the peacock stained glass front door to the hospitality and genuine southern charm of the owners. We stayed in the French Art Deco Room which was clean, comfortable and reminded me of a time gone by. Steven was a wealth of knowledge regarding the history of the local area and recommended several local activities and restaurants for our enjoyment. The pool and gardens are a delight to relax in and breakfast the next morning was a pleasure of the palate. We enjoyed this visit so much we returned this year for an 2 night stay. We stayed in the Poolside Bungalow which was a little world of our own. Steps from the pool and gardens, we enjoyed the hot tub, afternoon cocktails and wonderful conversational with the owners. Steven and Enoch will ensure you have a pleasant visit to their beautiful and historic city. And once again breakfast, including pancakes of Steven's own recipe will entice you to have several more. After two visits we feel as if they have become our friends and their home is our family home away from home. We are moving to Texas soon but will return to visit our friends and enjoy time with our extended "family"!! Thank you for wonderful memories, historical conversation, beautiful accommodations and new friends!!!!

My wife and I stayed at this charming B & B in Mobile. After a long day of driving from Houston we were greeted warmly by Steven. He was very helpful in educating us on the many restaurants and attractions Mobile has to offer. I promise you will leave this wonderful establishment energized for the day.

Great ambiance ... Charming, witty, entertaining, helpful host ... Bike storage near the pool area ... A San Francisco feel ... Cosmopolitan and sophisticated ... A delight.

Lovely, historic home in downtown Mobile. Location is very convenient to everything in downtown Mobile and is in close proximity to I-10 for visits to Fairhope, Dauphin Island, Gulf Shores, etc.
Enoch and Steven have a lovely home and the pool area is simply spectacular.
Breakfasts are excellent and both gentleman are extremely knowledgeable of the area and are always available with suggestions and recommendations.
Property is on main drag through Mobile but once inside, you would never know you are on a busy street. Fast Food within walking distance if that's your thing.
Only 3 rooms (2 in the main house), so it's like having this gracious old house all to one's self.
We really enjoyed our visit, and suspect you will as well.

We had never stayed in Mobile before and were not sure what to expect. Steven was extremely helpful in guiding us to some great places around town. We had some bad weather throughout our stay but we had a wonderful time at Berney/Fly. Steven and Enoch were very great hosts and the breakfast was wonderful. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed the history behind it. We loved the pool area and got to enjoy it a little during a break in the weather. We plan on coming back again as we felt very at home and welcome at the Berney/Fly. Just a tip, make sure if you think there is a chance you may have to cancel your trip, just purchase travel insurance. Thats the policy at Berney Fly. Didn't affect us but wanted to make sure anyone reading this knows about that. Overall, we give the highest marks to Steven and Enoch at the Berney Fly. We really enjoyed our conversations with both of them and can't wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: The most private room would be the Pool Bungalow. Its not attached to the house. The Spanish Bay roo...

My husband and I didn't know what to expect for our first B&B experience. We are both use to traveling and have stayed at some really nice hotels. We wanted something a little more romantic and different. We were very pleased with Berney-Fly. The pool is awesome (although we didnt swim). Our room was very nice with its own bathroom. Excellent water pressure and plenty big enough. We had a lot of privacy. We are in walking distance to downtown and minutes from most any attraction. Steve's breakfast was great (pancakes especially). Steve is very knowlegagble about Mobile and offers some nice suggestions. Definetely make a resevation for dinner at Felix's! It was superb!

This was my second visit to the Berney-Fly B&B. I stayed in the Spanish room again. I went with my parents who stayed in the outside cottage and a friend in the French room. The breakfast was great. Steven accommodated my diabetic father with his diet. Steven and Enoch are great hosts. Friendly, chatting with us, touring us around the lovely well manicured gardens. The pool and hot tub were relaxing. It is a clean home with beautiful decorations. We found the price to be very reasonable and the location could not be better for us. Steven directed us to good restaurants nearby. Thanks for the great weekend!

Room Tip: The cottage has a shower if you cannot maneuver the old fashioned bath tubs to grt in the shower. Th...
