About The Owner

By way of introduction I work as a bookkeeper for the City School System in my home town, Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I have always wanted a restaurant or hotel so I purchased a condo in Florida and a cabin in Gatlinburg, Tennessee to accommodate guests through daily & weekly rentals. I love working with people so recently started renting my guest quarters for Alabama Football games & special events. I have met so many nice people since starting this business in 1988. 'Bed & Bama' has accommodated guests from Canada, Hawaii, California, Florida,Missouri, New Jersey, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama, New York & Texas and yes we have even had Auburn & LSU fans stay here, everyone is welcome! The rental business is hard work but worth it. My goal is to give every guest the best accommodations at the best rate.

Five star stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay and it was great. Pastries upon arrival, pool table, tv's with all the movie stations. But the very best part was the beautiful patio overlooking the pristine lake. Spent more time there than I did inside. Again thank you so much for letting us stay!!

Tuscaloosa oasis

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here while helping our daughter move to a new apt. We both agree that this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The house and accommodations were great but also loved the patio and lake view in the mornings. Very relaxing and so peaceful. Personal touches like the newspaper and homemade brownies were very much appreciated. We just wish we would have had a little more free time to sit and enjoy it all. Thanks for sharing your home and we will definitely check here first next time we come to Tuscaloosa.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Bed & Bama is one of the nicest, most enjoyable places we've ever stayed at. It is a beautiful house and the view is great. It seemed like home everytime we walked in. We normally eat out every meal, but we didn't this time. We bought food to eat and stayed at the house. We took advantage of the grill and had steaks. The house was spotless when we got there. The yard and house is well maintained. The owner is great to work with. I would stay there everytime I visited in Tuscaloosa.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our extended stay and would gladly recommend this place for anyone going to Tuscaloosa for any reason. It's close enough to everything that you can do all you want without a long trip home, it's very quiet, it's very clean, and the owner is super nice. It really is your place while you're there and that is a great feeling. I'd love a little larger bed, but my wife and I made do quite nicely.

Bed and Bama

  • 5 of 5

WOW, What an amazing place to stay!! We were in town to attend our sons graduation. Just aggravated at myself that I did not discover this beautiful place before during my sons 4 years at the University of Alabama.Gloria was an awesome host and her daughter had brownies waiting for us upon arrival. Definitely a repeater an would be a Fantastic place to stay during Football week-ends. Just take Hargrove to campus which is a short distance to campus. I cannot imagine someone NOT enjoying staying here. Roll Tide!!! Of course a Kentucky fan has to say "GO CATS"!!

Bama Mom

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "Bed & Bama" while visiting our son. It was absolutely perfect! The owner was great, very easy to work with. The guest house was exactly what we wanted and allowed us to have a quiet, peaceful, and relaxing trip. We have been to Tuscaloosa at least once every year for several years now and this place allowed us the best quality time together as a family. Everything about the guest house was immaculate. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool table. The lake was beautiful and left you feeling as though you didn't have a care in the world, but yet you were only minutes from campus and all the sites of the town. I will most definitely stay here again!
