“Glad I didn't stay at Embassy Suites in Montgomery.”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

My first visit to Montgomery, coming from NYC, was great thanks to Bonnie and her B&B. This was a highlight for me in an otherwise long and routine work trip through the South. It is now my default choice for accommodations there.

Our stay was a wonderful break from extremely busy family events. We needed true relaxation and were able to find it with great thanks to Bonnie and Barry. It was more comfortable than home because every room had something to help us think only of enjoying ourselves. Breakfast each morning with the other guests was truly delightful. Bonnie can prepare just about anything even for guests' dietary restrictions or requests. The home is well laid out with guest convenience obviously kept in mind as it was designed.

My sister and I were taking a road trip from New Orleans to North Carolina and decided to stop in Montgomery to break up the trip. We seached the internet for the best option and were thrilled to find the Red Blluff Cottage. The house is just lovely and the location excellent. Our hostess was on a trip herself, so we were treated to some very special atttention from our host, Barry, who also is from New Orleans. We had a wonderful time talking about his old stomping grounds and know he also enjoyed reminiscing about his native town. Barry is most engaging and quite a good chef. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and the coffee kept coming. As another reviewer commented upon, the verandah is simply gorgoeous and so very inviting. As per our request on the previous night, Barry left us two wine glasses and a corkscrew for us to enjoy wine on the verandah after our dinner. We ultimately did not have wine upon our return, but look forward to sharing a glass with both Barry and Bonnie next time were are in their "next of the woods."

Great rooms that were beautiful and clean. The owners were wonderful as well. The food was wonderful every morning. This was an absolutely beautiful home to stay in and I would recommend it to anyone passing through or vacationing in Montgomery, AL.

Our party of four stayed here two nights mid-May. The accomodation really is lovely. Every room themed and decorated with care and thoughtfulness. We had the Gatsby Suite, complete with lots of Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald memorabilia - we had to be careful we only packed our own things when leaving!! The bed was huge and exceptionally comfortable. A lovely healthy breakfast was served at a fixed time and all guests ate together - a wonderful way to meet and talk to others about their travels. By coincidence another family also from Northern Ireland were staying here at the same time. Coffee and snacks were available on tap at any time. The verandah was a lovely spot to relax on, complete with rocking chairs and swing seat. Downtown Montgomery is a short walk away. Barry and Bonnie were excellent hosts and left us with a wonderful memory of our stay.

My wife and I were driving from Atlanta to Nola and decided to split up the trip. Glad we did, and glad we stayed here. The room was beautiful and the proprietor was gracious and most attentive. We hadn't visited Montgomery before, but if we do again will definitely go back

We stopped in Montgomery on the way from NOLA to Atlanta. This B and B was a gem. Super rooms, lovely breakfast and a welcoming host (2 actually). We particularly enjoyed the people we met over breakfast.
