This Bed and Breakfast is truly wonderful. The proprietors, Bonnie and Barry leave no stone uncovered as far as amenities and service goes. My husband and I stayed in the Riverboat Room which was filled with lovely antiques and the bed was so comfortable and cozy. The room is luxurious The entire house is filled with beautiful antiques, personalized photos... More

I adore this lovely B&B. Bonnie, the proprietor, seems to think of EVERYTHING…even things I haven't thought about! I travel to Montgomery several times a year and always try to stay here if a room is available. The beds are always wonderful and luxurious. Snacks, tea and coffee are available throughout the day or night. Bonnie bends over backwards to... More

We loved this B & B. Bonnie and Barry are great hosts and they ensure an above average stay for their guests. Breakfast was wonderful and we met so many other fun guests. Bonnie and Barry sat and chatted with us all and breakfast turned out to be a 2 hour seating! The only disappointment was that we stayed one... More

This was me and my wife's first ever bed and breakfast and we loved it! Barry and Bonnie were extremely warm and welcoming. There were complimentary snacks and drinks galore, and the bed was SO WONDERFULLY comfortable, some kind of homemade tempurpedic mattress. The breakfast was also amazing, with lots of fresh fruit, homemade grits with cheese, and gluten free... More

This B & B has a great location. Very close to downtown and easy to get to for dinner or sight seeing. Breakfast was good. They do not have a TV in the room which was ok since we were there only one night. This was built as a B & B which is nice cause all the rooms are... More

My husband and I decided to take a mid winter trip to visit Maxwell Field AFB where I was born 70 years ago. Looking for lodging we decided that we would make it special and so selected the Red Bluff Cottage rather than an ordinary hotel room. We were so pleased with every detail of our stay. It is hard...

Red Bluff Cottage is conveniently located just off the I65 and close to downtown Montgomery. We were a bit worried when approaching as there is no parking on the busy street, but turn left at the top of the hill to access the parking area behind the Cottage. The Rose Room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and spacious, with a... More

Our first time to ever stay at a B&B. It was more than expected. The interior of the home is beautiful. The Gatsby room we stayed in had gorgeous antique furniture with tasteful decoration and accent pieces to match the time period of the room. We were exhausted after driving over 10 hours. They welcomed us in person both nights... More

My sister and I go once a year to a Bed and Breakfast on a girls weekend trip. This year we decided to go to Montgomery, Alabama and stayed at the Red Bluff Cottage. What an incredible experience! Barrie and Bonnie were so hospitable and the B & B was outstanding. Better than any Hotel! We will definitely be staying... More

I was travelling around USA on my own and during my planning I choose the Red Bluff Cottage as a pampering experience, and to try and experience the Southern Hospitality. Well I can confirm that I received that and much more. Barry and Bonnie are fantastic, just the best host that I have ever found during my travelling. They are... More
