Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Cozy & private attic bedroom in EAST BIRMINGHAM (Irondale) with WIFI can sleep up to three. Guests will have access to their own bathroom on ground floor. From front door, guests are a mile away from the Irondale entrance of Ruffner Mountain--a fantastic hiking trail through nature. Cahaba River is also close by. Quiet, family-friendly suburban neighborhood NEAR downtown; car needed. Irondale is a suburb east of Birmingham--this location is NOT in downtown BHM.

The space
We are an easy-going family, trying to make some extra money. We love the location of our house because while not far from the city, we are also a mile away from an escape to Ruffner Mountain hiking trail and a few miles from the Cahaba River. Our neighborhood also hosts The Irondale Cafe, featured in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes-- walkable from our home. If you need a place to lay your head, we offer a no frills, cozy private room at a reasonable price. This is not the Ritz Carlton--hence it costing under $50 a night, ya dig?

WE ARE NOT LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN OR SOUTHSIDE BIRMINGHAM. This is a suburb of Birmingham. Interstates and highways are easily accessible from our neighborhood.

Should be noted that we have kids, a cat & three dogs. Folks with allergies or pet/child aversions, this will not be the place for you.

Guest access
Guests will have access to attic bedroom and a private downstairs bathroom. Feel free to use our fridge. We can also arrange for you to use our washer/dryer if needed. We have a front porch if you'd like to have your morning coffee on the swing and a fenced in backyard if you'd like to get loved on by the dogs. If you're traveling with small children, they may enjoy our daughter's play house and slide.

Other things to note
Our home can best accommodate solo or quiet travelers. Party animals or large groups may wanna look elsewhere.

Please note:
--Our house is off I-20, NOT in downtown Birmingham.
--The room is upstairs in a former attic space. There is a ceiling fan and box fan provided. You're welcome to adjust thermostat or close vent but it's best to have an understanding that heat rises.
--Our home is about 10 miles from Barber Motor Sports and about 5.5 miles from the Birmingham Airport.

I've previously mentioned we love being close to the Cahaba river & Ruffner. (Ask me about Ruffner if you're interested in hiking. There have been recent changes with the Irondale entrance.) This is a quiet, laid back family oriented neighborhood, so those who prefer wild nightlife, you will likely be underwhelmed.

During your stay
Happy to give recommendations on places to go/eat/see, but we tend to stay to ourselves and due to odd work schedules, there's a chance you won't see one or both of us at all.
