“Exquisite Breakfast, Comfortable room!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

This is an outstanding bed and breakfast and a couple of reasons that stand out in my mind is #1- The Breakfast that Mary makes in the morning is beyond words. She puts her fine dishes out and has a variety of breakfast nibbles (fruit, yogurt) before she brings out the main course of the menu item for the day. She makes incredible waffles and omelets and one serving is enough for two people. For being a bed and breakfast, the 'little extras' needed for a business traveler have been considered such as proper lighting and electrical outlets. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was decorated nicely and had a floor heater to turn on before getting in the shower or tub. The location is off of a main road and behind the B&B is a wooded area. This B&B is a hidden gem!

Columbus Street Inn is awesome! Ben & Mary are great. They were warm and friendly, and made you feel like you are personal friends. The breakfast was unbelievable the presentation look like something out of a southern and gourmet magazine. The rooms are large and clean and the location is great. I think I found a home at Columbus Street Inn when I travel to Fayatte. I can"t wait to take other friends and family.

When I read the glowing reviews on this site for the Columbus Street Inn, I thought if it lived up to HALF the great things said, this B&B would be worth it. The owners made the stay very easy from the beginning, when I was able to quickly make a reservation online, followed up immediately by a confirmation and instructions for our after-hours arrival from Mary.

The room was great and it was clear much consideration had been taken in making the guest's stay a comfortable one. Staying during Christmas was a treat because everything was decorated so beautifully that it really put me in the spirit of the holidays. I would guess they don't do anything halfway!

And the food! The reviews do not do justice to what you can expect at breakfast. The fruit was not an afterthought, but instead a perfectly fresh highlight to the meal all by itself. And I truly thought Mary must have trained as a chef after tasting what she had managed to create that first morning; but if so, she has kept it from her husband. :) So often at hotels and even at very good restaurants, breakfast is predictable and little care is taken to make it anything other than filling. But at Columbus Street Inn, you will remember what you had, probably tell other people about it all day, and miss it when you have to go home.

Mary & Ben Hightower's friendly & warm manner make you feel right at home in this charming & comfortable historic home. There's nothing like waking up to the delightful smells of coffee & bacon! The breakfasts are truly amazing and the best we've had in our many stays in bed & breakfast across the country. Not only is the food incredibly delicious but the presentation is equally impressive!

The Fredericksburg room is quite comfortable & very large, and the private bathroom is well equipped. The living room is inviting & well stocked with videos & books for the guests' enjoyment.

The Columbus Street Inn is more than enough reason to visit Fayette!

Room Tip: Sweet Diggs Restaurant (open only for lunch) is a must!

As always we had a great time at the Columbus Street Inn. Mary and Ben make you feel so welcome and the charm of the inn and area is great. The food is out of this world. I feel so special when I stay at the Columbus Street Inn because we eat a "sit down" breakfast and Ben is our waiter and Mary is the chef:-)) Both of them are awesome!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying in Mark's Room.

This Bed and Breakfast is the best around! From the moment you arrive you are welcomed and till the time you leave you will be welcomed back next time. They are great people and make your stay most comforting. The breakfast that is served every morning is very good. The rooms are very clean and very cozy! Thanks Scott N.

Room Tip: The Fredricksberg Room is my favorite.

My husband and I have stayed at the Columbus St Inn Bed & B'fast numerous times. He belongs to a hunting club in Fayette co and while he enjoys his time in the woods I enjoy my time just reading and relaxing. We also stay there when we have attended events in Winfield Al at the Pastime Theater. The hospitality is wonderful and the food outstanding.
We plan on many return visits!
