About Steven

My name is Mary. Thanks for stopping by my listing! This home is a warm place of hospitality that opens its doors often to friends and family and much entertaining. A passionate appreciation of gardening and baking has led to community recognition. The Barred Owl's outdoor garden area and porch have become everyone's favorite invitation. My desire is it will become one of yours.

Steven purchased this house in 2000

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! GREAT STAY!! AMAZING BREAKFAST!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Barred Owl Inn during Iron Bowl weekend. Everything about our weekend was amazing! Mary is so hospitable and kind! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Mary was attentive to every need but also gave us space to enjoy our stay. The room was very pleasant and cozy! We felt right at home and comfortable. The breakfast was out of this world amazing! We highly recommend any body stay there and if we every stay in Tuscaloosa again, we will be returning! Also, Mary made a birthday cake from her bakery, "The Cottage Bakery" and it was AMAZING! Thank you Mary for everything!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at The Barred Owl Inn with my two teenage daughters for a game day weekend. Mary is so hospitable that you forget that you didn't know her previously! The accommodations are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are simply amazing. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful bed and breakfast

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful experience at The Barred Owl Inn. Staying here is like being a personal guest of a long time family friend. Mary is the BEST hostess possible and her breakfasts are a dream come true. The guest rooms are pleasant, the house is cozy and the backyard is fantastic. This is the only place we will stay on future trips to Tuscaloosa.

Like staying with a friend who makes awesome breakfasts!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Mary, who is very sweet and exemplifies southern hospitality, for graduation weekend. House and beds are very comfortable and clean and neighborhood is nice. About 3 miles from UA campus but an easy drive. Mary makes you feel right at home, breakfast was awesome and the backyard is lovely for hanging out. If you need a clean, comfortable place with a great breakfast for UA events or any other reason you are in Tuscaloosa then this is the place to stay. We have tried many other vrbo/homeaway places in Tuscaloosa and this was by far the best. Thanks Mary for a wonderful stay!!

Mary is THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband for his birthday to go to Tuscaloosa for the BAMA vs LSU game. We felt right at home and Mary is the BEST hostess in the world. She made my husband the best birthday cake. If you're thinking of choosing a B&B book here!!

A special place to stay for comfort and pampering. Mary is a truly gifted hostess and my daughter is still talking about her food and visit to the Barred Owl! Give yourself a break and stay here for delicious breakfast and genuine hospitality.
