Richard and Ellen's house is beautiful and comfortable. I was a little leery about the idea of a bed and breakfast at first since I was concerned about the invasiveness of staying in somebody's house, but I was quickly put at ease. Richard and Ellen were helpful, friendly, immediately putting us at ease. Breakfast was very, very good and Richard...

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at River Rest. The rooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfy. The view of Lake Logan Martin from the living room was incredible. Richard makes delicious breakfasts. We had so much fun joining Richard and Ellen and the other guests during our evenings. Listening to everyone's stories and getting to...

We just spent a fantastic weekend at River Rest Bed and Breakfast. We have stayed at many B & B's through the years, here and abroad, but believe we have now found the best. River Rest provides spotlessly clean, tasteful, beautiful yet comfortable accommodations. But that is not the best part. The inn keepers, Richard and Ellen, are the real...

We stayed at the River Rest for a long weekend when we traveled to Talladega to attend the NASCAR race. It was such a relaxing experience. The owners are very friendly and easy going. Our first full day there was stormy, so we slept in, had a wonderful gourmet breakfast, and then retreated to our room for a relaxing day...

This was my first time at a B&B, but I can't imagine a greater experience than at RiverRest. Ellen and Richard are such fun, and so accomodating. The home is spotless, and spacious. From the big front porch we could enjoy the beautiful view of the lake and the grounds where the azaleas and roses were in full bloom. You...

We had the good fortune of staying with Richard & Ellen for two nights, although we wish it could have been (much) longer. It was a very relaxing stay, and their hospitality and extra touches made all the difference to us. Their house is beautiful, and sits on a hill overlooking a lake...the scene could not be more tranquil, especially...
