Bonnie was a superb hostess. Everything was super clean, nice, and extremely fresh. She went out of her way to make our stay special and memorable. The cottage is lovely and the service is excellent. The breakfast was outstanding and both my picky teens raved about it on the way home. I would highly recommend the Red Bluff Cottage!

And it was! We were driving to Florida from Michigan and having never been to Montgomery before we wanted to learn more about it. Red Bluff Cottage is located to museums and restaurants nearby that we chose to visit, the owners are friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts, excellent. One thing of note, Bonnie-one of the owners, pulled up a chair and had a cup of coffee with all of her guests while we enjoyed her hospitality. It was a very friendly gathering.

Bonnie and Barry will make you feel at home and as if they’ve known you forever. Nice river view and convenient location. Safe and quiet area of town with a good parking area. Interesting history displayed throughout the home. Delicious coffee as well.

Bonnie made us a delicious breakfast and made us feel like family. The room was charming and the bed comfortable. Although not downtown, we walked there and back 4 times in two days despite one of using a cane. The Capitol is probably too far on foot for most. Parking in that area is not a problem and worth making the extra effort. The museums are great.
