I have stayed at several B&Bs and this one thus far is the best! From the beautiful location on the lake, to the warm and inviting home of Richard and Ellen, you will never feel like a guest in their home. The delicious breakfast was priceless; Richard cooks with the spirit of a professional chef. I so enjoyed the morning...

Off the beaten path but worth the adventure! Unfortunately, we were unable to meet Ellen, but will try again next time. Richard was a perfect host and the most awesome cook ever! You've never had shrimp and grits like his! And he shares recipes! Loves to talk! Is multi talented and a joy to be with! The place was beyond...

We chose this place to rest, after a week in Florida, and before a 10 lap adventure at Talladega. We could not have chosen a better place. Bring your appetite, as Richard is a wonderful cook, and loves to feed you a LOT. Even his recommendations on local places for dinner were right on. Our GPS was a little off,...

Second visit that my wife and I have had the privilege of making with Richard and Ellen at River Rest. They are a great couple, they love the Lord and they do a fantastic job making you feel welcome and pampered. The place was decorated with Christmas decorations inside and out. Plan on having a great time!

I had business in Birmingham, Alabama. Yes, I could have stayed in Birmingham but I wanted a place that was peaceful, full of atmosphere, in order to make my business trip a little bit of a vacation while working. This place exceeded my expectations. Yes, it was a little out of the way but well worth it. The view of...

Richard and Ellen made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, the Stuffed French Toast Casserole is fantastic. The Garden Room offers a very quite space in which to relax. The mattress was so comfortable we are going to have to upgrade ours at home now. Off the beaten path yet not too far from shopping and...

My husband and I recently stayed at River Rest Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights. We had a great stay. The location is lovely; the sunrise over the lake worth seeing. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were beyond belief. Thanks to Richard and Ellen for being wonderful hosts ... welcoming and ready to make our stay...

My husband and I recently stayed at River Rest Bed and Breakfast to cellebrate our anniversary and all the special days we will miss throughout his upcoming deployment. Feeling a little worn out, we were also looking for a place to "hide" for the weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place! Richard and Ellen are such thoughtful, warm, and...
