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...

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...

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...
