It would be difficult to overstate how tremendously we enjoyed our weekend in Mobile at The Kate Shepard House. The house itself is stunning and the interior is gorgeously appointed. Our room was so clean and comfortable and the house was quiet, even when full of guests. Wendy was the most marvelous hostess, so warm and welcoming. We loved visiting...

This was my first experience staying in a B&B. My 17 year old daughter and I were on a Mother/Daughter road trip and came across this place because of their french toast being one of the top ten things to eat before you leave Mobile! I have to say that I fell in love with it as soon as we...

I’m not sure if I can add any more superlatives to all these excellent 5 star reviews but I will certainly try – it’s that well deserved! We stayed for three nights (Thursday-Saturday). I picked the Mobile Bay room and it did not disappoint! My wife and I were in town for the SE Sectional adult tennis tournament. I had...

There are times you meet people on your travels that you are grateful to have had the opportunity to do so. Wendy is one of those people. Not only is the home absolutely beautifully restored, you will be treated like one of the family. Her story about the house and important findings are amazing. The stay is worth every dollar....

Beautifully restored historic property in a lovely neighbourhood with a warm welcome from Wendy, together with freshly baked cake and hot drinks or port & sherry in the lounge. Great start! Comfortable spacious accommodation with many period touches, information, literature and art works many created by Bill who modestly accepted just praise for his painting. Excellent restaurants within a short...

If you are going to be in Mobile the Kate Shepard House is a great place to stay for one night or longer. Its in a quiet and walkable neighborhood not far from downtown. Wendy and Bill are terrific hosts and know the area, the praline French toast alone is worth the overnight stay.

The Kate Shepard House is the best bed and breakfast by far! It offers a perfect Southern getaway. You can unwind and relax and look forward to the amazing breakfast that will be prepared for you each morning by Mrs. Wendy. It's absolutely the best place to stay while you enjoy the beautiful sites of Mobile.

Getting ready to leave Mobile, Alabama with my beautiful sweetheart Susan Cohen Hammen. This has been our favorite stop so far. We stayed at The Kate Shepard house a St. Anne style bed and breakfast circa 1897 with the most awesome Proprietors Wendy and Bill James. Wendy is a true southern belle cooking the most scrumptious homemade breakfasts and baking...

From the genuinely warm and friendly welcome we received from Wendy the moment we arrived we were bowled over by this lovely place. Apart from its fantastic place in history (be sure to ask about the 'letters' and the amazing story of the McRae family) the house is beautifully furnished and sumptuously appointed. It seems that everything has been thought...
