Relaxing, Farmhouse Feel with Modern Comforts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I both loved staying at the Cotton Top Cottage farmhouse, we enjoyed the large rooms, the wide open layout, the huge kitchen, and the calming views from every single window, showcasing the beautiful, mature wooded area. From the kitchen sink I saw four kinds of birds all at once... it was such a nice break from the city life and all its noisiness. I enjoyed quiet mornings on the front porch swing very much, just one of three large porches! This was a much-needed respite; surrounded by nature, yet with the interstate right down the street for easy access to get into Birmingham. The beds, linens and furnishing were all premium quality. We appreciate all the extra comforts provided by the owners, who have clearly taken detailed care to ensure a pleasant stay for their guests. We would gladly stay here again!

FANTASTIC COTTAGE GrEAT OWNER

  • 5 of 5

This house is not little but it is charming. Everything was clean and in its place. Snacks very yummy ( I left what we bought and didn't eat). Wayne makes sure the essentials are provide so you are not searching for a store that night. The house is well marked so we were not fumbling in the dark and one day during our stay Wayne installed a motion sensor light in the carport. It was so much easier to unlock the door at night. Through many texts about a few things Wayne never lost his sense of humor. I even found a little very baby kitten in the yard and the local shelter people were so vey kind. The furnishings are very nice and decorated just right for upgraded redesigned cottage. The shower was a dream. the bathrooms are large and the beds were comfy. The pillows were so great I bought some just like them. Three porches and padded outdoor furniture. Quiet with a cute pond . It was great to be close to the Interstate and stores but we were off the road and there was little noise. It was a very stressful time for us. Cotton Top Cottage was a soothing oasis to come home to every night. It was the best six weeks of working on the road I have ever experienced and Wayne and the cottage made it so. We kept referring to it as "home". As if I could be so lucky. If we find ourselves there again we will be asking to stay there. Thank you for a great stay.

Adorable!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cotton Top Cottage is an adorable 2 bed, 2 bath turn of the (last) century bungalow. It is very nicely renovated with so much charm remaining. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious! The kitchen is supplied with every utensil one might need. Mr. Polk was easy to contact and delightful to do business with. I would definitely recommend this property to ANYONE that asked.

Very nice home place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful homey property, all the modern conveniences. Rooney, nicely furnished and decorated. Great place for a group gathering . Close enough to stores that grocery shopping is not an inconvenience.
