                My daughter and I were in town to attend sorority preview weekend and found the Bama B&B on VRBO, and were thrilled with our choice. The entire family was so welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed at all times! We stayed in the sunshine room and it was even better than the photos. Looking forward to our next trip over the summer when we move our daughter to Alabama. We will be staying here for all of our trips, if they have availability! Looking forward to staying for a football game! ROLL TIDE!

                My daughter and I attended the University of Alabama University Day while checking out future colleges. We wanted to stay in a unique location and found the Bama B&B on VRBO. We could not have picked a better place to stay. In fact, our visit to the Bama B&B was as much a selling point for my daughter to attend U of Alabama as the campus visit itself! The property is every bit as lovely as the pictures online and is very clean. The host family was gracious and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in the Sunshine Suite and had plenty of room and privacy. We were able to view the other rooms as well and would be happy to stay in any of them. The breakfast spread was amazing and very southern. :) The home is large and there is plenty of gathering space both inside and outside. It is off the beaten path, but we liked the location on the lake and it was still very easy to get to the University. Kim provides very good directions to wherever you need to go. We will definitely stay there again. Roll Tide!

                We had a wonderful stay at the Bama Bed & Breakfast for a recent football weekend. The accommodations were perfect and it was clear they had every detail covered. This is a wonderful property run by a charming family. Without question, I would return again on my next visit to Tuscaloosa.

                I came across the Bama B&B on the website and fell in love! The pictures were beautiful, and I loved reading about the owners and the comradery they had with their guests. When we actually arrived we realized that the pictures did not do the place justice! It is stunningly beautiful! Kim greeted us at the door with a welcoming smile and freshly baked cookies (our two boys loved that!). Kim showed us to our room, the Bama Guest Quarters, which was fabulous and very Roll Tide! She never failed to mention that she was always available if we needed anything. The breakfast was excellent, and it was fun to sit with the other Alabama fans. Everyone in her family and staff were very sweet and accommodating, even the dog and cats! Overall a fabulous experience!!

                We had a wonderful time with Kim and Marc at the Bama B&B. We really did feel like part of the family. They are such gracious and lovely hosts and nice people. It was within 10-15 minutes of the stadium and the campus. It was worth every penny staying there and the next time our Razorbacks play in Tuscaloosa we will be back!

                We stayed at the Bama B&B for 9 days while we moved our daughter across the Country to attend The University if Alabama. It is a beautiful, spacious home set on a beautiful location. The Roberts family were all very welcoming, even Biscuit the cat and their dog Gidget. :). Breakfast is yummy, coming from CA I'd never had grits or biscuits with cocoa syrup but let me tell you they were both yummy and it was fun to get a taste of Southern tradition. It was nice to be able to stay there while our daughter moved on campus, we were able to get acclimated to the area. The Roberts family was very helpful with that as well with suggestions on good places to go and eat. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, and friendly place to stay with a beautiful view then this is the place for you! You will feel like family when you leave. :). Roll Tide!!

                My daughter and I stayed here during move in weekend. We were having a difficult time finding an available hotel, and were lucky enough to discover The Bama B&B. The home is beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The Roberts family truly makes you feel like you are family. If you are lucky enough to have warm, dry weather take advantage of the beautiful pool and lake. Wonderful place to stay!!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: We built this, our dream house, after losing our other home to a tornado in 2000, and a 2nd home to a fire in 2006. We're both retired school teachers, and we run a rental home business. We love to entertain, and we often host visitors in our home. Some of our former guests include Hurricane Katrina victims, and other visitors from all over the world - we're a host family for the University of Alabama's Foreign Language Department. Our children are older now, so we decided as a family to try something new - a Bed & Breakfast! We have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of getting to know other Bama Families from all over the county! Roll Tide!

              Why the Owner Chose Tuscaloosa:
              We built our home in this lovely location in south Tuscaloosa because of the quiet beauty of the lake, and its close proximity to town. We thought about building on Lake Tuscaloosa, but it's so far away from everything! We also wanted a quiet lake instead of one that sounded like the interstate! Our lake does not allow motor boats, so instead you only hear the sounds of nature all around you!

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
              We have a fully stocked lake and the fishing gear to go with it! You can fish from the pier, use the paddle boat, or use the fishing boat with the trolling motor. We also have a great outdoor heated swimming pool, an indoor exercise pool, pool table, air hockey table, a small friendly dog, 2 spoiled cats, and much more. You are welcome to join our family for breakfast in the morning, or sleep in and have breakfast on your own. Please contact us directly for pricing information since rates vary per suite and per season.
