This Bed and Breakfast in North Alabama is Truly a Destination You Must See to Believe

To say that Gorham’s Bluff, Alabama is one of the most spectacular places we’ve ever stayed is an absolute understatement! The incredible lodge sits at the back of a well-planned community, overlooking the Tennessee River Valley from the top of a mountain. Dawn was our incredible host and after our 3 nights there, we felt as though we were long lost friends.



Even though weather prevented us from experiencing one of their profound sunsets, the sunrises and stunning views allowed for us to relax, settle our minds, and relax our souls.

​Each room is elegantly decorated with for a stress-free stay complete with a large, comfortable bed, a large bathtub, and a balcony overlooking the Tennessee River Valley. From this balcony, guests are greeted with the most spectacular sunsets and memorable sunrises. The deep soaking tub can also be turned into a hot tub with one push of a button, making your stay a more spa-like experience than you will find at any at any other bed and breakfast.



The community that is Gorham Bluff offers beautiful walks next to ponds, to see and old school and gorgeous chapel, and if you are lucky, you may get to see the most beautiful ducks in Alabama there too.





We were presented an incredible steak dinner on the second night that was started with a fresh spinach salad complete with tangerines, blood oranges, regular oranges, and avocado and was topped with a thick, homemade strawberry vinaigrette. Our appetizer was a crostini with cream cheese and bacon and baked to a warm, smooth perfect. Finally, our medium steaks were paired with seared asparagus and topped with Parmesan cheese. Dessert didn’t miss a beat with a fresh blackberry cobbler. Breakfast on our last morning was just as amazing as Dori had eggs, bacon, and grits with a side of fresh fruit and Brandi warmed up with perfectly cooked oatmeal topped with strawberries and blackberries. With the most comfortable beds we’ve ever experienced, heavenly views, delicious food, and the most amazing host, it was hard to pack our backs and leave this special place. Thankfully, we know there’s another trip to see our dear friend soon!
