The host and hostess are very gracious. The house is comfortable, clean and in an interesting part of town. The food is outstanding.

The Red Bluff Cottage was a perfect respite during our travels. Bonnie was accomodating in every way; from a special diabetic for my dad to making sure we had perfect sleeping arrangements with separate beds. Barry was an easy conversationalist, finding out Daddy's interests and contributing to comfortable discussions. Should we travel anywhere near Montgomery, Red Bluff Cottage will definitely be where we choose to stay. Thank you, Ponteins, for making us feel like forever friends.

We stayed at the Red Bluff Cottage for a one night, special, romantic, surprise mini-break. There are many adjectives we could use to describe our stay: Romantic (the room, the special romantic package which included rose petals on our bed, candles, exquisite sheets, and flowers); Delicious (the snacks in our room and breakfast...yum!); Relaxing (quiet and comfortable); Friendly (Bonnie and Barry are wonderful hosts!). We could go on and on but essentially, we didn't want to leave!

Red Bluff Cottage
Was a wonderful place to stay and visit the town of Alabama. The owners gave such spiritual and warm hospitality. Left you feeling like family.

Our family stayed at Red Bluff Cottage for a night on our way to spring break in Florida. We loved everything about our stay...the hospitality, the rooms, the linens! Our hosts, Bonnie and Barry Ponstein, gave us terrific sight seeing suggestions so we could learn more about Montgomery's history. Our children particularly loved the breakfast and conversation with the Ponsteins, and the 'endless' M&M bowl in the hall. We will definitely go back when our travels take us that way.

I spent three nights with Bonnie and Barry and while traveling with my two boys, age 8 and 12. They say their favorite part of the entire 7 day trip was being there. It was clean, homey and they made us feel so welcome. The breakfasts were stellar. We enjoyed the movies and the games. It was truly a home away from home. We can't wait to go back and see them again!

We stayed with Bonnie and Barry in early March 2009. Their B & B is not only spotless, it was cozy, open, warm and close to town. Bonnie made THE most delicious breakfast (wild rice, pomegranate, chocolate waffles) and spent time with us chatting at the breakfast table.

After a week of travel I came down with a head cold before I arrived at the Red Bluff B & B and Bonnie took good care of me with EmergenC and echinacea tea. Their hospitality is second to none and the experince was wonderful. Enjoy!
