My wife and I had never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before----and The Cottage exceeded our expectations. Martha and Jean Michelle are the perfect hosts. Do not, repeat do not, pass up dinner. Martha cooked up a salmon dish that was delicious with coconut rice. The decor is remarkable. Breakfast was crepes. Also I had made a mistake in... More

This was my first experience at a Bed & Breakfast and I must say me and my husband loved it. We stayed July 13 2013 to celebrate our 9th Anniversary and could not have been happier. Martha and John Michelle were welcoming from the moment we made the reservations. We truly wanted to sample the dinner from this location but... More

We have stayed at this charming home several times. The hosts go out of their way to make one comfortable and meet all needs. I have food allergies which were accommodated at breakfast with special gluten and dairy free waffles and almond milk. Fresh fruit, eggs, cereal, and other offerings are available for breakfast. The rooms are comfortable and roomy,... More

Because my husband and I were going to be in the area at fly fishing school, our children decided to present us with an evening out at The Cottage for our 25th anniversary. The dinner was not only delicious, but one of a kind, designed uniquely for us. The owners, Martha and Jean Michel, were perfect hosts who made us... More

Based on the reviews I had seen on this and other websites, my husband and I were looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately, Tropical Storm Debra decided to make her presence during the same time so we called the property a few days before our scheduled reservation to see if they were going to be open and available. We left... More

Readers please note: the above review is inaccurate. Though these persons may have called, we never got a message from them OR Hotels.com. What they don't say is that they CANCELLED their reservation 5 days prior to the date of arrival, knowing that this would result in a loss of their funds, as is made clear when one reserves the...

We spent two nights in this lovely house in a very pretty northern Florida town. The place has been redesigned from basic cottage to something closer to a French country inn, not surprising given that the husband of the husband and wife managers comes from Paris. We had one dinner here, which was marvelous, and two breakfasts. Unlike many B&Bs... More

My husband & I decided to celebrate our anniversary at this wonderful B&B. We had heard wonderful things about "The Cottage" & our experience there was nothing short of magical. Our dinner, prepared by Martha, was amazing. The love & craftmanship that Martha & Jean Michel put into their B&B is truly a sight to behold. The night that my... More

I grew up in Monticello on the Tallahassee side of town. I have had the following events at the Cottage: birthday party with my twin, senior prom dinner, my graduation party (2003), and my best friend had her wedding reception/wedding night there as well. Jean Michel and Martha are amazing! Jean Michel did most of the designing and rebuilding of... More

We stayed here for one night in mid April after doing a Trip Advisor search and Google. I am so glad we picked this place and not one of the other local B 'n B's. Upon walking into their Venetian courtyard, we knew this place was different and special. The care that went into the design and decor was very... More
