We stayed here as part of our tour through the states and were hoping to experience famous southern hospitality- boy were we in for a treat! Bonnie and Barry truly enjoy looking after their guests and go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay in Montgomery.
The house itself is charming and quaint making it feel like the perfect homely getaway. This is complimented further by cute touches such as jars of sweets, a guest fridge of drinks and snacks, little make up remover pads and even monogrammed toilet paper! Such touches really made our day as we'd been on the road for quite some time. Its upside down design meant no heaving our bags upstairs- why don't more guest houses think of this! In addition to our lovely room, the upstairs lounge was lovely to relax in and we were encouraged to kick back and indulge in its extensive DVD collection. The deck was also a great spot to sit and watch the sunset from. All this and wifi throughout. Can't fault it.
Location wise it's in a quiet residential area just a short walk from downtown. Each room had a large leather bound folder they'd put together full of maps, restaurant and attractions. It even had a history of the place! This was a treasure if information and very comprehensive.
And of course, the breakfasts. Bonnie is a wonderful cook and treated us to a wonderful selection of offerings each morning. Her blueberry pancakes were out of this world and it's no wonder they are on the top 100 things to eat in alabama before you die!
Bonnie and Barry, throughout our stay the two of you truly made us feel like family and when you're 3000 miles away from home, this was very much appreciated.
