I had a wonderful stay at Red Bluff, such a beautiful property and spacious, comfortable rooms. Bonnie and Barry were wonderful hosts, and Bonnie is a kitchen wizard who prepared one of the best breakfasts I've ever had despite my special dietary needs. I would recommend Red Bluff to anyone traveling through the Montgomery area. Also very convenient to downtown and the Alabama Civil Rights landmarks.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Stitch in Time room which was perfect for one person. Located on the first floor cl...

We stayed at Red Bluff Cottage for three days while taking the Alabama Bar Examination. Staying at Red Bluff was the best decision we ever made. During what we anticipated to be the most stressful three days of our professional lives, Barry and Bonnie made our stay relaxing, warm, inviting, and peaceful. The rooms were large and comfortable, the decor was authentic and charming, and the breakfast was outstanding! Barry and Bonnie took us in as their own and truly made us feel as if we were "home."

We stayed one night during our travels and found Red Bluff Cottage to be such a wonderful experience! The rooms are extremely clean, comfy and the beds are luxuriously comfortable. we stayed in 'Stitch in Time" room, just loved it. Breakfast was extra special and we found Barry and Bonnie to be delightful hosts. We hope to return next year!

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.

I stayed 5 nights at the Red Bluff Cottage while attending a conference in Montgomery. After intensely long days, it was such a delight to come 'Home' to a beautifully decorated, comfortable oasis and enjoy the generous hospitality of the hosts. They really do go above and beyond expectations to provide a unique experience for each guest.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Riverboat room. It was perfect....comfortable, quiet, spacious.

We only had 2 days but no matter how many days you have you can't do better than Red Bluff. If you visit Montgomery plan to stay with Barry and Bonnie. They are the hosts with the most. Every detail is covered. You want for nothing. 5 star rating. The home was beautiful also. What a breakfast, WOW.

My wife and I needed a place to stay in Montgomery during a road trip in the USA and this B&B fitted the bill perfectly. We loved the period architecture and it was only a short walk downtown. Spotlessly clean and all the beautiful soft furnishings made it very comfortable indeed. Amazing breakfast! No smoking inside but ok on the balcony. No charge for parking on site. Wi-fi. En suite private bath/shower. The hosts were very polite and accommodating. We have no hesitation in recommending Red Bluff Cottage.
