We had a wonderful time at Red Bluff Cottage! We're from the South and know how southerners should treat people. To say the least, Barry and Bonnie were the perfect hosts and took care of everything we needed. The house was very charming and beautiful, not to mention the swing on the front veranda was very relaxing! We plan to... More

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... More

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...

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,... More

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... More

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...

A lovely stay at a thoughtfully decorated B&B with charming hosts. Especially if you are not from the South, avoid the impersonal hotel chains and stay here for some Southern hospitality--its well worth the extra money. The location isn't perfect, but you're only 3 minutes from downtown by car, parking is easy, and once the museums close, not much is... More

The owners are amazing. They went above and beyond to welcome us and make us feel at home. Everything was perfect from the decor to the food to the hospitality. I look forward to staying with them again.
