"Excellent host and hostess. Ira and Sheila know what they are doing. Bed very comfy and room was VERY clean. Didn't get a chance to grab breakfast. Looking forward to next visit."

"Service was great and breakfast was exceptional! I love history; therefore I love this place."

"B&B was beautiful. Host and Hostess were very very nice."

"This is a lovingly restored Victorian in the heart of the University of Alabama in Birmingham. The hosts, a sculptor and the UAB campus planner, are not natives, but they served us an elegant breakfast, rich in the art of conversation, linking our professional interests entertainingly to that of the other two guests at the table. Maybe our best B&B experience yet."

"I'd never stayed in a B&B before, but my parents have sang their praises for years. We were so "taken-aback". The furnishings were spectacular, our room was beautiful and our hosts, Ira and Sheila, were so friendly & helpful. Located about a block from "five points" insured wonderful dining and entertainment. There was even a wonderful array of entrees for me. (I'm vegetarian). I DEFINITELY recommend Cobb Lane B&B for a pleasant, relaxing "get-away".

"The Victorian Doll House is perfect in every way. Sheila & Ira are charming and hospitable hosts. The 5 Points location is in walking distance to Highland Grill and several other most excellent places to eat. We especially enjoyed hanging out with the locals at Dave's - great neighborhood bar. Birmingham is a lovely Southern city with great history and an even better future!"
