My wife and I needed a quick getaway for our anniversary and discovered this lovely gem nestled on the banks of the Coosa River. Richard and Ellen (the owners) were as warm and welcoming as if we were family. The room was comfortable and immaculately kept. And the breakfast!! Always surprisingly different and utterly delicious. The River Rest has just... More

That's what we were trying to find during our first visit to this beautiful state, and we did! The Mixons gave us an extraordinary experience: A warm welcome to their lovely home; a daily gourmet breakfast with incredible flavors; and information about the area for touring and finding a great dinner. Our best memory was sitting on the veranda and... More

Ellen and Richard, the proprietors, were gracious and provided a wonderful get away for us. They welcomed us to join them in watching football, then recommended a fabulous restaurant for dinner. We returned to enjoy one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! The breakfast Richard cooked to satisfy our gluten free needs greatly exceeded our expectations!... More

Really enjoyed our two night stay. Highlights were the hospitality, food and access to the lake. Be careful getting into the tall beds. Very comfortable once you are in. The location is a bit remote so it takes some travel time from Birmingham.

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.
