It was a great house and location to the Talladega race.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very roomy and comfortable for 4 people.. Everything we needed was available. They even had water and snacks for us.

I stayed in this wonderful cottage for a month and it became like home.

  • 5 of 5

The owners couldn't have been nicer throughout my stay. They even left snacks on the table as a welcome gift. The house was much larger than I expected. The kitchen is very well equipped and I had no problems cooking several large meals while I was there. They have beautifully updated the whole house and yet it still has a nice farm house charm to it that made it so relaxing. Bathrooms are both updated with plenty of fresh white towels and the beds are quite comfortable.

While in the country, in a serene setting, it is easy to get on the interstate which makes it convenient getting to most anywhere.

If you need a place for a month or for just a few days, I don't think you could find one better than this. I loved staying here!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jessian, It really makes us happy to know that you were able to relax and enjoy friends and family while you were staying at Cotton Top Cottage. We're glad you think it's special too! It's our pleasure to provide special treats for our wonderful guests like you. I knew you would enjoy the quiet convenience as well as the kitchen and front porch swing! When you come back, I hope you'll have time to "wet a hook" in our 3-acre lake. I think your family would love to enjoy it's peacefulness as much as you do the house. Getting to know you and your family was a special treat for us. We want everyone to feel as welcome as you did.

Perfect Gathering Spot for Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four of my friends and I (3 from Louisiana; 1 from Mississippi; and 1 from Tennessee) had tickets to see an off-Broadway show in Birmingham but wanted to stay in a place where we could relax and visit over the weekend when we weren't at the show. This house is a wonderful place for gatherings of any kind and is very convenient to the Interstate. We were very comfortable and everyone had plenty of room and everything we needed. The linens and the towels had the most wonderful feel and smell to them - so fresh and clean. And I can't say enough good things about the deep clawfoot soaker tub in the hall bath! Was perfect after a long week at work and the drive to get there. While we chose it for a girls weekend, it would be perfect for a family gathering, too. Plenty of room for kids. If I am ever back in the area, I will definitely stay here again! Also, the owner was always available to answer questions and provide information about the area which was great.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Carrie. We are happy that you loved our home as much as we do! We are looking forward to the next time you want to come to Cotton Top Cottage for a "girls weekend", or for any other time you want to be our guests. There have been two weddings and several family get-togethers in addition to all the weekend and other retreats. Now we know that it's a great place for a "Girls Weekend". Thanks for being great guests!

Beautiful Home -- we'll miss it!

  • 5 of 5

This has been an amazing rental. The owner has been so accommodating. It's big enough we were able to have the extended family over to make homemade pasta for dinner (10 people in the kitchen rolling out dough). It has all the amenities of home -- even the little extras. It was the perfect place for our family of four + our crate-trained pup. If we find ourselves needing a place in the Birmingham area again, this is the first place we'll look. We would consider changing dates of a visit just to book it--it's that wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words about our place. We are so thankful when our guests want to come back more than once. We want all our guests to feel like special guests. I'm glad your family was able to join you for the holidays and enjoy each other there. Wayne

Great Christmas stay at the Cotton Top Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage over Christmas!! All the conveniences of home and plenty of room to spread out. So much better than cramming into a small hotel room! The owners checked in on us upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and also left us a goodie basket full of yummy snacks! The property is beautiful with plenty of trees and trails to explore. Inside, the decor is super cute and was even decorated for the holidays. Location to the interstate and restaurants in Pell City was great. Thank you again for having us in your home! We will definitely be back as we visit Birmingham family often!
