Serene Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an affordable place to stay while in Birmingham for work. We hit the jackpot with this gem! The country setting was beyond our expectations with the added bonus of Dixie and Lucienda greeting us everyday! (We really missed our furbabies at home and those precious girls made us feel right at home.) The carriage house was more beautiful in person. We enjoyed the lovely scenery while sitting on the porch drinking coffee. The added homey touches of fresh eggs, organic tea, coffee, and crackers as well as organic soaps was such a treat. We felt like we were on vacation not a work trip! We hope to return to Birmingham and would definitely stay at the Carriage House again.

Country, but close to the City

  • 5 of 5

Small farm setting with horses, chickens, roaming cats and friendly dogs, and beautiful trees on green, rolling grounds. Hard to believe it's close to Birmingham. The owner is very hospitable and helpful. Cute rustic decor in the carriage house. Very comfortable king-sized memory foam mattress on the bed. Plenty of bedding and towels. Enough pots, pans and utensils to cook meals (we cooked all of ours during a 6-day stay). Size of the place is nice for 2, maybe 3, people. A younger child will find the spacious grounds and trampoline entertaining. Not for the disabled (steep steps going up into the carriage house are made of stones) or the extra large person as the shower is very, very small and the seating mid-sized. We would definitely go back with our 6-year old granddaughter. Disappointed to see it was booked all summer.
