Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 3 Andalusia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 January 2011

We got married here, just the two of us!!! Laura and Ricky were the sweetest hosts and we will never forget them. We plan to come back every year for our anniversary. The peace and quiet is just wonderful. This is a very romantic place. I wanted to take the sunporch home with me. We spent more time there than in our room! The food was fabulous! I hope my daughters get married here too! Raymond and Mary Willis, Robertsdale AL

We selected this place for our 5th wedding anniversary trip. The criteria was that it had to be within a 6 hour drive, had to be very peaceful, and in a small town. This bed and breakfast matched all 3 things and had many added bonuses. As much as I like to travel and try new things, I will visit again next year just to see the owners, have peace and quiet, and enjoy truly delicious meals. This food and dessert snob was overly impressed.

We stayed at Sweet Gum Bottom on our wedding night. It was the best night sleep I have ever had! The bed was very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and before we retired we took a stroll through the garden and relaxed in the jacusi tub. Laura, the owner was so inviting and made us a wonderful southern breakfast the next morning before we left for the rest of our honeymoon. We stayed a week in Gattlinburg but nothing for the rest of the week compared to the Sweet Gum Bottom. Thank you Laura.

My husband and I were looking for a little peace and relaxation and we found it. Laura and Ricky have thought of everything! They made us feel so welcome. The place is beautifully decorated. It's one of the best breakfasts I think I have ever had. We stayed in the Laura Leigh suite and the bed was so comfortable I wanted to take it home with me. We normally don't sleep well away from our own bed, but we both got a good night sleep there. You can tell the Laura and Ricky have gone to great lenghts to make sure every detail is covered. We will be looking forward to our next visit!!!

We stayed at Sweet Gum Bottom whilst on a Robert Trent Jones Golf tour of Alabama. Sweet Gum Bottom was a substitute location when our first location closed down. What a substitute it proved to be. Quite easy to find with our GPS and located in a lovely country area, Laura met us with such friendship and hospitality we knew we would have a good stay. We could not help notice the beautiful décor on the way to our room, which similarly turned out to be immaculate in every way. As we had not eaten for ages Laura recommended an Italian restaurant in Andalusia. As we were not certain quite where to go Laura and Ricky drove in front of us to the location and stayed on for a meal with us (at our invitation), where we met up with their daughter. After dinner we returned to Sweet Gum Bottom and met up with another 'Brit' who was working in the area. We sat talking and drinking coffee into the very late evening and went to bed feeling as if we were part of the family. As we had to leave very early the next morning to make our tee time at Highland Oaks near Dothan, Laura must have been up at the crack of dawn to prepare a fantastic breakfast that certainly satisfied our hunger pains right through the golf. We are planning another RTJ golf trip early next year and Sweet Gum Bottom will be the top of our accommodation list.
