I had a speaking engagement in Birmingham and decided to treat my wife to a night there and found the Cobb Lane the only B & B in or around the city. We spent Tuesday afternoon at the Birmingham Zoo, then checked into Cobb Lane and walked 1 mile on a pleasant evening to the Fish Market Restaurant downtown. The...

Thank you for selecting our Southern Magnolia suite at COBB LANE BED AND BREAKFAST. It is often the Honeymoon or Anniversary get-away for couples. Our other Inn is HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BED AND BREAKFAST, just 2 blocks away in the same historic district. Its favorite Honeymoon and Anniversary room is Enchanting Turrett with a 4 post high king size bed...

My husband and I loved our stay at Cobb Lane. We both had never stayed at a place like it before and so we didn't know what to expect. First, the house is beautiful and quaint from the outside. It shows little signs of aging but that is to be expected from an old house and it adds to the...

We are delighted that we happened to be the first BB that this delightful couple stayed in and hope they'll continue to try other BBs in other cities and countries. Each one is different and you learn alot about the local community and culture by doing so. Their praise is much appreciated. Thank you so much for writing!

One night's stay at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion in the "Blue Serenity". We were not there for pleasure as my friend's 2 week old baby was in the nearby Childrens hospital undergoing heart surgery. We booked this location for the experience of a B&B instead of an hotel. Although, I have tourned many B&B's I have never actually stayed in...

HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BED AND BREAKFAST. Our hearts go out to these wonderful ladies and others who must travel suddenly for medical reasons. In this case, it was for the surgery of their granddaughter. A very difficult emotional time, for sure. We learned in this review that one had mobility issues but we were not advised of this at the...

Our family truly enjoyed the Cobb Lane B&B. The house is beautifully decorated, though it may not be everyone's taste. Sheila, the hostess was warm and friendly upon arrival and we had no issues with her. Our family of three stayed in the Country French Suite, which we felt was a great deal. In Country French our teenage son had...

The B & B and the working staff were great. The breakfast however gave us a different taste for the B & B. The owner definitely caters to the "employed" guests vs the vacationing guests. We were first to enter the dining room and since there was a table to the side set for 2, we chose that in case...

Sheilachaffin, Owner at Cobb Lane Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

We owe you an apology from your description of how it seemed to you. Typically those who sit in the smaller side table have told us previously that they do not want to be disturbed, are choosing that location for a private conversation, and don't wish to sit with the group at the larger table. We've learned something today and...

The Cobb Lane B&B is a lovely traditional house which has been beautifully restored and furnished by the owners, Sheila and Ira Chaffin. It's ideally located in Five Points and an easy walk (downhill) to the downtown area, the medical district and the Railroad Park. The homemade biscuits (cookies) on offer when we arrived were delicious, the breakfast was also...

The room was inadequate. Not at all as advertised. Not clean. Not warm. In basement. B&B in need of maintenance. The lady owner was gracious her husband was not saying 'do you think you will be ok for five minutes' after replacing a tv that was inoperative. Cannot recommend these accommodations.

Regretfully, the TV in the Zebra room malfunctioned. My husband brought them another one that worked well when this was discovered. He had just received news that his Father had died and was holding back his grief when he did so. He apologizes for any inconvenience they may have experienced and he meant no offense to them. We wish them...

Meeting friends in Birmingham for Saturday night concert. They were staying at the Cobb Lane B&B and recommended we do the same.

These Guests were a lot of fun and we're glad they got to know our Five Points Historic District that has 26 restaurants and evening entertainment venues. Some guests have drinks at one spot, try another for appetizers, a third for dinner, and fourth for dessert and/or listening to music or dancing. The number one dish in Birmingham region, according...

From the charming Victorian Rose Room, to breakfast at the elegantly set dining table, it is perfect. The host and hostess are charming, interesting individuals yet with a great professional touch. SO much better than any hotel!

Thank you for your kind comments about the Rose Room and the BB breakfast, offered daily in our Dining Room. Guests may also let us know they wish to be pampered and we'll bring them breakfast in bed, no additional charge. We enjoy getting to know our guests, who are very distinguished and accomplished.

The owners of this B&B are the most cordial you'll ever want to meet. Rooms are awesome, breakfast is awesome. They have 24 hour cookies and drinks. A wonderfully restored historic house.
