My wife and I stayed two nights at Red Bluff Cottage, in the Great Gatsby Bedroom. The innkeepers are very cordial, but our room fell short of our usual expectations, probably due to the Great Gatsby theme. The room was what I could best describe as “over-decorated”, but that might otherwise be described as cluttered. There were some 40 pictures... More

Bonnie and Barry run a beautiful bed and breakfast, which, for us was a highlight among many highlights, that included Graceland, and the Grand Ole Opry. I recently toured Ireland and Scotland, well known for their B&B's, and Red Bluff is among the best I've experienced. Large hotels cannot compare to the personal and caring touch that we were treated... More

This was my third stay at this bed and breakfast. Bonnie and Barry are amazing owners. They are kind and feel like extended family. Their cottage has the softest beds I've ever slept in! Bonnie's breakfast is purely delightful! I love this bed and breakfast. So so relaxing.... make sure you make it to the front porch swing for the... More

Our experience at Red Bluff Cottage was great from start to finish. We arrived a little bit early but were greeted by Bonnie and were allowed to check into our room, which was large, well-appointed and very comfortable indeed. Bonnie and Barry make you feel at home - you're encouraged to sit on the beautiful verandah and watch TV if... More

I think this is my 4th. stay at the Red Bluff Cottage. The sheets, bedding, and towels are 5 star! Bonnie goes out of her way to attend to small details and the comforts of her guests. The B&B is SO quiet and comfortable. There are even soft, beautiful robes in the closets; snacks, tea and coffee all day and... More

Fantastic and very welcoming. You'll feel like you're staying with friends. My wife and I stayed to celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. We arrived late after dinner and the host were very accommodating.

My wife and I were on a trip around the southern parts of America for our 29th wedding anniversary. Our last stay was at the Red Bluff Cottages in Montgomery. When we arrived at the property we were quite delighted with it because it had a terrace with swing chairs. But on entering the property we thought the owners of... More

Bernie and Bonny are incredible hosts and cook a very mean breakfast! We stayed at the Red Bluff Cottage on our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room (Riverboat) was very clean and spacious and tastefully decorated. The Red Bluff Cottage has its own (free) car-park at the back which was very useful and is a very short distance... More

The Red Bluff Cottage is an oasis in Montgomery. Each room is beautify decorated with many of the owner's family heirlooms each room and each room has a theme. The bed we slept in (the rose room) was so comfortable and the SHEETS were perfect and the best money can buy. The dining room is amazing with antiques everywhere and... More
