I have stayed at the Denham House several times and can honestly say it is one of the best I have ever stayed in( and I have stayed in many B&B's across the country). The inn keeper is friendly and will go out of her way to accommodate her guests, very knowledgable of the area and its offerings . The... More

Pat (innkeeper) is an exceptionally nice woman and very helpful. The home is well-kept with charming fixtures. The bed was comfy. However, I rated this as average because it was 95+ degrees during our stay and the house stayed at 80, 81. The air conditioning was very low and I had to sleep all night without any sheets or blankets... More

You are right! It is very hot and buggy in the south in July. I wish your evening front porch sitting time would have been a cooler time of the year. And yes, sometimes at this time of year an unwanted flying intruder will dart into the foyer entrance and in to the parlor - where upon they will promptly... More

My husband and I wanted a romantic place to stay on our way to pick up our daughter from a camp at FSU. This was a marvelous find! Best B&B we've ever stayed in! We were in the Gold Honeymoon/Anniversary room which was delightfully decorated and very comfortable. After a day of exploring the town and surrounding backroads, we enjoyed... More

I found the John Denham House on TA. I was traveling alone for work, and Pat immediately made me feel comfortable like I was staying at my aunt's house. The rooms were spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Pat gave suggestions about what to eat and do nearby. I really enjoyed her hospitality. The full breakfast was better than... More

We stayed in the gold room for one night as part of our honeymoon roadtrip from Orlando to New Orleans. After ten days at the theme parks in Orlando our one night here was much welcomed. It was so relaxing and quiet and the house itself is stunning. Loved "wine time" and the ice cold cokes and waters available for... More

Yes! We get many honeymooners staying. That is why we have two bridal suites but all of the rooms are romantic. They get quiet, private time to themselves. We have a special candlelight breakfast with photos for our newlyweds. Thanks for the great review. Pat More

I would highly recommend I love Bed and Breakfasts. I love this one in particular. It is a very well maintained, original home. It has a friendly vibe if you will. The rooms are spacious, clean and had special touches such as robes, slippers, and bubble bath. Pat is gracious with southern hospitality at its best. There was complementary wine... More

Wow! You thought of everything! It makes me feel so good when guests notice how we try to think of all the amenities and atmosphere we have. The staff loves hearing about themselves in the reviews. Yes, our ghosts ( we are fortunate enough to have more than one) are delightful and friendly. Every good bnb has a ghost or... More

Where do I start? The place is absolutely charming and historic and the service was superb. We stayed in the Blue Room, which according to some articles is the epicenter of some haunting a at this charming B&B. However, we did not get any activity at all. We did however wake up to the best breakfast I've had this far... More

We stayed a nite at the Denham house b&b recently. It was a very pleasant visit. The room (and all of the inn) was clean and roomy and attractive. Bedding very comfortable also. It was a spur of the moment stop but Pat couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. We enjoyed a glass of wine on arrival and a... More

We have stayed at B&B accommodations all over the U.S. We enjoyed our stay at 1872 John Denham House. Pat is a terrifc hostess and clearly wants her guests to feel welcomed and well served.
