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.... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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"...

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.

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... More

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... More

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.
