Red Bluff Cottage

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014

From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed! Bonnie and Barry were warm and gracious southern hosts. We are only sorry we could stay only one night. We were attending functions at Maxwell AFB and this was the perfect location. After a few not so wonderful nights in a hotel we needed another place to stay for one night. Oh how we wished we would have thought of Red Bluff Cottage in the first place. We stayed in the Rose Room and felt immediately at home. What a beautiful home they have, everything is perfect and the amenities above expectations. The room was gorgeous and the bed very comfortable! Breakfast was delicious, beautifully presented and we really enjoyed that our hosts sat down after serving us and visited with us. What a wonderful way to start our day. We will definitely plan to stay here if we are ever again in Montgomery! Thank you Bonnie and Barry! God Bless You!!

Red Bluff Cottage in Montgomery was the perfect setting to meet my daughters and granddaughter to attend "Mary Poppins" at the Shakespeare Festival. On arrival, Barry was there to greet us and as "back door" guests (which in the South means you are someone valued) we felt at home almost immediately. He and Bonnie have covered every detail in this beautiful and immaculately clean cottage. Returning "home" after the play was a perfect ending to our evening. Waking to a delicious breakfast served in the Red Bluff dining room the next morning, made us want to linger at the inn a while longer. Red Bluff Cottage is a well kept secret...but one I will be sharing! The only regret or disappointment is that we were only there one night.

The owner of this B&B was so considerate and kind to the number of allergies we had in our party. She made the most DELICIOUS gluten-free vegan chocolate chip pancakes known to man. This is an allergen friendly place with really kind keepers. They were also extremely helpful in telling us what there was to do in the city, restaurants nearby, and advice on our other southern travel destinations. Definitely give this place a shot. Great southern hospitality. I would definitely stay there again, also their location is honestly minutes away from downtown Montgomery. Beds were very comfortable!

Room Tip: The riverboat room was so cute!

This was our first stay at a B & B and I have to say I don't think any other B&B could top this one. We were treated like family by Bonnie & Barry while we were there. The cottage and the rooms were absolutely beautiful. The breakfast was phenomenal.We met & made great friends while we were there. If anyone is in the Montgomery area I highly recommend the Red Bluff Cottage B&B. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Bonnie & Barry for the best birthday weekend I have ever had. We will be back and looking forward to seeing both of you again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful comfortable and peaceful.

A recent stay at the Red Bluff Cottage was our first experience with a bed and breakfast, but most certainly will not be our last. We selected this B&B because of its proximity to Maxwell Air Force Base and because of its wonderful reviews. A sign on the property states that you will "arrive as guests but depart as friends" and we found this to be true. Ours was the only room occupied the night of our stay, and we had the pleasure of conversing with Bonnie and Barry while enjoying the wonderful breakfast Barry had prepared. We are thankful to have stayed at the Red Bluff Cottage, and will most certainly look into staying at B&B's during future travels - not only for the wonderful hospitality, but also to avoid those sometimes awful continental breakfasts served at most hotels/motels.

My wife and I were treated like royalty by Bonnie (from LA-lower Alabama) and Barry (originally form NO-New Orleans). The location is convenient to the interstate and near several restaurants. A wonderful stay.

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.
