Private use of finished portions of a beautifully restored home from 1895, including front porch, lounge, 2 bedrooms, & bath. Walking distance to bike share, grocery store, and the Avondale, Forest Park, & Lakeview entertainment areas. Close to downtown, UAB, St. Vincent's, and airport. Hotel-suite type kitchen amenities (microwave, mini-fridge, coffee/tea, toaster). We have 1 double air mattresses for extra guests. (SORRY, we can no longer offer continental breakfast as of Sept. 2021.)

The space
Although we do not have a full kitchen, there is a mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, hot water for tea, and dishes are provided as well. Note that the only sink is in the upstairs bathroom, but we provide water in the lounge. (As of Sept. 2021 we can no longer offer continental breakfast but we do have coffee & tea.)

Also note that although our listing accommodates "6" there are only beds for 4. I provide one double-sized air mattress for the extra 2 guests. You can include additional guests if you provide your own mats.

Where you’ll be

Birmingham, Alabama, United States

We are within walking distance of several great entertainment districts, including the popular new Avondale area with brewery, live music, restaurants and bars. Also walk to Lakeview and Forest Park entertainment areas. Birmingham is a vibrant city with a lot to offer in terms of music, fine dining, parks, arts and history.

More about visiting Birmingham and Avondale:

Birmingham was ranked number four on Lonely Planet magazine's list of places to visit in the United States in 2016. The list ponders whether the Magic City is "the coolest city in the South" after seeing "a surge of pubs and breweries and good eats" in Avondale.

The national restaurant guide has ranked Birmingham No. 1 on its new list of America's Next Hot Food Cities. "Overshadowed for years by its neighbors Nashville and Atlanta, Birmingham has now come into its own as a premier culinary destination," Zagat editors said of the Birmingham restaurant scene.

The Travel Channel has some recommendations if you want to spend 2016 jetting around the world.... Birmingham landed on the list of top 11 destinations for 2016 and is the only U.S. destination mentioned.

I work in educational publishing and am a mother to two boys, ages 10 and 14. My husband homeschools our kids by day, cooks us wonderful food from scratch while he does so, and is restoring our two historic Birmingham homes by night. I'm a piano & guitar player, dabble in song writing and recording, and love music. I am easy-going and flexible, and want to help people appreciate Birmingham and Mentone the way I do--they are both great places in Alabama!
