Local Favorites

We love our city and all it has to offer. Birmingham has so many outstanding restaurants, breweries and attractions, that it can sometimes be hard to choose. We have created a list of all our favorite spots that are truly locally owned and operated. We really hope you take this opportunity to experience elevated dining in a small city.

There is a covered patio leading up to your door. Keyless entry leads you into your open living area with a 70-inch LCD smart television with an Amazon Fire Stick, couch, coffee table, and a stocked coffee bar with both regular and decaf. As you walk further into your living space, you have a dining table with seating for four as well as a desk with a monitor and cables to connect a PC, a comfortable office chair, and complimentary fiber Wi-Fi. As you turn the corner, you will enter the kitchen with a full-size stainless-steel GE stove and microwave, full-size side-by-side stainless steel KitchenAid refrigerator, sink, island, and a full set of pots and pans to prepare any meal you like. You have a full-size front-loading Whirlpool washer and dryer for your use. The first bedroom has a queen bed and an LCD wall-mounted TV with an Amazon Firestick, dresser, and closet.

Cynthia is very nice and responds quickly. She is also very helpful in case you need something. Her place is quiet and outside of the hubbub of the city. It is an easy drive to I459 and I20 for those passing through Birmingham and the city is easily accessible for those visiting Birmingham. Very peaceful grounds with a pond and places to walk. Comfy beds, clean and nice sitting area. Thanks for the stay, Cynthia.

The place is beautiful-better than the pictures. We had everything we needed and more in this basement guest house. We especially loved the pool which has its own bathroom with shower. Cynthia was very responsive to any needs that we had. I would love to have stayed there longer. If you find this place available- book it and thank me after!

It’s always a wonderful stay at Cynthia’s. She truly thinks of everything to make your family comfortable and at ease during your stay. You will not want for anything while you are here! The kids love the saltwater pool and their very own room designed for them. I had to come back and write a second review simply because it’s that enjoyable.
