Avera-Clarke House is a step back into nostalgia and elegance. Troy and Gretchen can not do enough to make your stay above and beyond. The garden and the extra space for guests outside gives you many options for relaxing. Although they are only set up with 4 or 5 guest bedrooms the outside roofed area and gardens can accommodate large... More

We were lucky to get 2 nights at this charming house the weekend of FSU graduation. It was less than 30 minutes to get to/from Tallahassee but a world... More

We love staying here every year for the annual Monticello Watermelon Festival! Gretchen and Troy are the most charming hosts! The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, so comfortable and clean. The house is a historic landmark and within walking distance to downtown, shopping and dining. The grounds are beautiful with a huge backyard and hammock and grill for outdoor dining... More

We loved the Avera-Clarke House! We started with our children and felt very welcome! The rooms were charming, luxurious and spotless! Breakfast was fabulous, the grounds were beautiful and relaxing and our hostess, Gretchen, was so friendly and an excellent tour guide! You must try the Avera-Clarke House!
