Beautiful home, friendly innkeepers!

5 on February 18, 2015

We stayed here on our way to visit family right before Christmas. A little out of the way, but so worth it! The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas and every room was unique and had it's own tree. We stayed in the Lydia room, very comfortable bed and two bathrooms attached to the room. Also warm cookies waiting by the bed for our arrival. Unfortunately we did not get to spend more time at the house, arrived late and left right after breakfast the next morning, but our time there was very pleasant and we will definitely be returning in the future. Owners were very accommodating with any special requests regarding breakfast and arrival time. There was also inclement weather during the night and Gary came to check on us to make sure we were safe which meant a lot! Great people and amazing B&B! ~Lindsay and Hugo

Garden Path Inn Alabama Surprise

5 on July 25, 2012

Found this beautiful surprise last July just looking for somewhere to stay for one night while traveling near this area of lower Alabama. The house is just beautiful!!! Found the hosts to be warm, friendly. They made us feel so welcome. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts took the time to join us. If you travel this way or visiting Eufala, you will not be disappointed with a stay at the Garden Path Inn.
