We thought this was a wonderful place to stay, the house was within easy walking distance to the town, historical sites and restaurants. The house and contents were magnificent with a sense of old southern charm with so many pictures and artefacts. The breakfast was excellent with real tea served in a teapot. We would highly recommend this place to...

A lovely B&B in a good location from downtown. The B&B was purpose built by the previous owners in the 1980s but you wouldn't know; it looks like it has been there since the 1800s. All guest rooms are on the ground floor with the breakfast room on the first floor. Also on the first floor is a porch with...

The Gatsby Room, on the ground floor, was a little overwhelming with so much paraphernalia on every surface, plus it was very dark. So see if you can find another room if you are like us. But if you like old treasures and a cozy feel, this room is for you! The breakfast was delicious.

We had a lovely two nights at Red Bluff. The room was beautiful and the breakfast amazing. We enjoyed the company of our hosts who made us feel very welcome and were most helpful in advising about exploring Montgomery. The city itself is attractive with a lot of historical interest. Downtown was within easy walking distance of the Cottage. An...

My husband was in Montgomery for business and I decided to come along. There was a convention in town so all of the hotels were booked. We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before so we weren't sure what to expect. Wow! Bonnie and Barry have a wonderful cottage. The house is decorated in a way that compliments...

We have stayed once before and found the location to downtown outstanding, as well just off Highway 65. Considering the wonderful breakfast, the rate was less than downtown hotels. We stayed in the River Boat room and the bed was very comfortable. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful.

This is our second visit to this B&B and I would highly recommend it. The rooms are well furnished and not cookie cutter like a regular hotel. Easy driving and maybe walking to downtown Montgomery which itself has undergone a renaissance itself with several nice restaurants and a minor league baseball team. Our hosts were charming and the other guests...

I enjoyed a wonderful time at the Red Bluff Cottage. All was in pristine order: clean room and common areas, slept well in a bed worthy a king, bathroom and shower couldn't be better and breakfast my style. Important touch: the cup of coffee I was served for breakfast was the best tasting cup of coffee during my one road...

We stayed only for one night in this nice little B&B Red Bluff Cottage. The innkeepers were very cordial. The room was how to say old fashioned? Very clean and cozy. We appreciate the real home made breakfast and the intresting conversation around the breakfast table. Bonnie and Barry are very friendly people. Only remark is the Wifi, it didn't...

I took my dad on a trip to commemorate his work on the March with Dr. Martin Luther King. We were in town for an event with the Southern poverty Law Center. What a cute little house! The host and hostess were warm and kind. They served beautiful southern breakfast and even accommodated my father's dietary needs. The decor was...
