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.
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.
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!
This was a great place. Clean, quiet and decorated for Christmas for us!! Mr. Polk allowed us to bring our dogs and it was a treat for them getting to hike down to the pond each day! Cotton Top Cottage was relaxing and spacious. I hope we will get to stay here again on our next trip to see family!!
This is the second year that I rented Cotton Top to host my family's Christmas dinner, and it's perfect in every sense! The kitchen is well equipped, and Wayne had the house decorated so beautifully. There were 23 of us this year and the weather was cold and rainy. But there was plenty of room for us all inside without feeling cramped. I'll be booking "our Christmas house" again for next year!
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!
