Welcome to Sweet Gum Bottom

Our Country Bed & Breakfast in Alabama

Our small town Alabama bed and breakfast, nestled among towering sweet gum trees, is a wonderful escape for those seeking a romantic getaway. Here you will find peace and quiet, and hospitality that will keep bringing you back.

Only five minutes from Andalusia, our lodging accommodations are situated on 12 private wooded acres, offering a quiet rest from crowds and traffic. The landscaped grounds are perfect for weddings, parties, or just wandering around. Cozy up by the outdoor gas fire pit with a warm cup of cocoa, or dangle your feet from the relaxing hammock under the oak tree.

This romantic B&B offers you a restful night’s sleep in one of our four thoughtfully-appointed guest rooms. Each room features an in-room private bath, with a shower or Jacuzzi (or both!). Other amenities include cable television, hand-pressed linens, spa bathrobes, and fresh flowers! For your convenience, we offer free wireless Internet throughout the inn, and each suite provides a double USB port for phone charging. Because we care for the environment we use only Melaleuca Products. Our cleaning and laundry regimen is free of harsh chemicals and use only natural enzymes, oils, and healthy ingredients to protect our land.

Settle in and enjoy yourself!       

Each morning, we prepare an elegant and generous meal for our guests, because we feel that breakfast gives you a splendid start to the day. Our B&B has received many awards for our inspired breakfast, including:

  • “Best Breakfast in the Southeast” by Arrington’s B&B Journal
  • Rated #5 in North America, and was also selected as one of 2016 Top Ten Inns in Alabama.
  • Listed as one of the 25 Best Weekend Getaways and Places to Visit in Alabama by VacationIdea, Dream Vacation Magazine

Whether you’re in Andalusia on business, or you’re looking to experience a small respite from the hectic pace of life…we would love to have you stay with us!
