Travel the South: Gorham's Bluff

Nestled high above the Tennessee River in Pisgah, AL, you will find the charming community of Gorham's Bluff. The drive from Birmingham is a little over two hours, making the trip just right for a weekend escape. I was looking for a place to spend the weekend peacefully and quietly with my husband and we got that and so much more at Gorham's Bluff.

We stayed in the Blue Spring cottage and the whole time we were there, we were already planning our next trip. Gorham's Bluff is one of those places where everyone is so hospitable, the views are stunning, the food is incredible and the whole place is filled with good ol' Southern charm that makes you want to stick around a while. 

Look at that post office! SWOON!

As soon as we arrived, we checked in, dropped our bags off in the cottage, and then quickly set out to explore the property. We admired the beautiful architecture of the homes and took in the Seaside-esque feel of the community. If you are looking to visit, there are several cottages that are available to rent, or you can stay in one of the rooms at the Lodge. The Lodge offers spectacular views, but we liked the space of the cottage.

While we did opt to stay in a cottage, we ate dinner and breakfast at the Lodge. We walked over to the Lodge from our cottage before dinner and watched the sunset. It was breathtakingly beautiful. 

Since Gorham's Bluff is located in a dry county, they do not sell alcohol, but you are welcome to take your own. We took a bottle of wine to dinner with us. We sat for a long time just talking and laughing and greatly enjoyed our wonderful meal. The chef came out and spoke to us and we couldn't say enough about the fabulous meal he prepared!

Expansive porches, big windows, high ceilings and an overall inviting feel is what you will find at the Lodge. I felt like I had stepped into the pages of Southern Living magazine. After dinner, we went back to our cottage and sat out on the deck for a bit admiring the stars in the clear sky. When it started to feel a bit chilly, we went inside and turned on the fireplace. It was so relaxing!

The next morning, we leisurely woke up and then headed over to the Lodge for coffee (of course I packed my fave mug from For Posh Sake). 

We sat outside and enjoyed the view before heading in for breakfast. After breakfast, it was time to head home. We were sad to leave, but glad to get home to our babies. We left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. It was the perfect little getaway and we can't wait to go back!

Happy travels!
