Fifteen years ago, I received a brochure and reservation confirmation for the Lodge at Gorham's Bluff from my husband. I still consider it my favorite present. Yesterday, we made our annual trip to the Lodge at Gorham's Bluff, once again. I can understand why the readers of "Southern Living" magazine previously voted The Lodge at Gorham's Bluff as the "Most Romantic Spot" in Alabama. The setting is breathtaking--seclusion along a precarious bluff overlooking the Tennessee River in North Alabama.
The six guest suites are each tastefully deoorated. The King Room is our favorite with amenities which include gas logs, a whirlpool bathtub and a private balcony complete with rocking chairs. Many of our friends enjoy the lofty third floor where the Owens or Roden rooms are located--complete with two-sided fireplaces. When we check-in, the innkeeper always loans us a collection of romantic CDs to be used in the Bose Music System. Chef Keith wowed us with a four course dinner as we dined near the dancing flames of a real wood-burning fire place by candlelight. The hearty breakfast was amazing as always. We enjoyed hiking along the bluff, and when we have visited in the summer months, the swimming pool is a great place to relax. We enjoy exploring the bluff, the lake and spending time star gazing from the pavilion. Leaving the bluff is always sad, but we are already planning another trip to our favorite spot on the planet, the Lodge at Gorham's Bluff.
