This B&B is highly rated. As we arrived, I thought two things immediately: will our car be safe in this transitional neighborhood and; can I sleep (as a noise-sensitive person) surrounded by busy streeets? I wanted to leave as soon as I saw our room . Every inch had something old on it: antique clothes hanging on doors, dolls peering...

We had a wonderful visit at the Red Bluff Cottage. Bonnie and Barry are warm and accommodating hosts, making sure we were comfortable and all of our needs were met. We stayed in the Great Gatsby room. It was lovely - a beautiful room - and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was delectable, and Barry and Bonnie...

This is a lovely, warm, comfortable B&B very close to downtown. Barry and Bonnie are so welcoming and even willing to chauffeur guests to local restaurants. The rooms are clean and beautifully appointed. Breakfast was great! It is a lovely place to stay when visiting Montgomery.

Bonnie and Barry were gracious hosts. Everything was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and more than ample. We especially liked the triple berry smoothie which was served before the breakfast entree. We enjoyed the candy dish of m + m's and bottled water. If you are in the area, plan to stay here.

My Husband and I recently stayed at the Red Bluff Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Montgomery Alabama. Bonnie and Barry welcome us into their home and made us feel like we were family. Just outside our room was a frig with cold sodas and waters, mints and snacks. Our room was filled with unique antiques and was very comfortable. We...

My husband and I enjoyed our weekend at the Red Bluff Cottage. The cottage was beautifully decorated and the bed in the Rose Room was very comfortable. We couldn't have asked for better hospitality. We were just sorry that it was a busy weekend for us (Auburn to a football game and to a play on Sunday) and didn't have...

Bonnie and Barry Ponstein, Thank you so much for a friendly, hospitable stay at Red Bluff Cottage. Such a homey, comfortable place was a welcome respite from "motel living." And your food was great, too! It was our first experience with a B. and B. and judging from your place, we will surely remember yours, and likely try others. We...

We stayed at Red Bluff Cottage for 2 nights as part of our road trip through the south of the US. Bonnie and Barry were amazing hosts, who went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Barry gave us great recommendations for local restaurants, dropped us off and picked us up after dinner!!!,...

We stayed only one night in this very nice place. We have been very well welcome by Bonnie & Barry who were really nice and also let us a lot of privacy. The room was very nice, clean and the bed was just great! (very comfy!) A lot of space to chill in the house (front porche, living room, parlour)....

We chose to stay in Montgomery as an impulse on our way to New Orleans for the weekend. The Red Bluff Cottage was our first experience with a B&B, and what a great one at that! Barry greeted us and showed us our room. We were impressed by how clean and welcoming everything was, enjoyed playing the board games and...
