Wonderful Home Stay!Jasper, GA (Member # 13609)
Mobile, AL #14378 --Phenomenal!
What a wonderful home stay! I was very warmly welcomed and treated like a queen. As an antiques-lover, I couldn't have been in better surroundings than in a beautifully restored and furnished 1900 home in the Historic District of this "City under the Trees." Dian was a Mobile native and wanted to share her love for her community. She and Gene drove me on a brief tour to orient me as to the locations of the port and museums, even the 1920's Murphy H.S. Their backyard garden is a beautiful place to sit out with a good book and enjoy nature.
Because they are conveniently located to I-65, I was able to see Bellingraph Gardens in Theodore and shop the streets of Fair Hope in a single day.
If you visit them, make it on a fourth Monday of the month, and join them for an evening of local jazz at the "Mobile Order of the Jazz Obsessed." I got Lil Greenwood's autograph and CD. She sang with Duke Ellington for 14 years.
If you are able to climb stairs to their spacious guest room and are a dog lover (their two Shelties Peter and Indy are "family"), then THIS is the place for you. It surely was a great memory for me.
