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

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

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. After a long day of driving, we were met with chilled wine, mixed nuts and sweet treats. Our room was very spacious, quiet, and comfortable.... More

This was my second time here and both times felt very welcome. We did a last minute booking and they were able to accommodate us and my doggy. The first time, we were in the downstairs bedroom and my dog was up in the middle of the night with her head going up and down...watching. My partner is convinced she... More

For my birthday my husband and I stayed two nights. We stayed in the beautifully decorated and spacious Lacy room on the first floor. The bathroom was well stocked with various soaps, shampoos and towels. We slept quite soundly. It was very extremely quiet at night and the down comforter and mattress were heavenly. Pat the innkeeper was out of... More

I really enjoyed my experience staying at this bed and breakfast. Compared to the prices of bed and breakfasts in nearby Thomasville, GA, it is a MUCH better deal. I got a huge room for half the price of the smallest room at a comparable B&B in Thomasville. There were warm cookies and desserts when we arrived, and the place... More

Our family got together to celebrate a birthday at the 1872 John Denham House. We stayed in the downstairs family suite. It was perfect for this occasion! Pat welcomed us, got us settled in, and gave us information on the area. Walking from this inn to the downtown shops and historic area is a breeze. The morning's breakfast was delicious... More
