Pet friendly as well. Tried a little ghost hunting, but have not been able to review our data and photos yet. Would visit again, had a most enjoyable relaxed environment in... More

We had a comfortable bed in a quiet room and we loved it. The house is a traditional historic property and Pat cooked us a great American breakfast after we had been for a run around Monticello, which is a sweet historic town. She also gave us good restaurant recommendations and was a relaxed host. We really enjoyed our stay... More

We arrived a little late to Monticello, so we didn't get a good look around to see what options there are, but this bed and breakfast is nice. Bad weather was approaching, but we wanted to eat dinner, and Pat, the owner of the B&B, gave us a suggestion that was very close and very good. When we returned, we... More

My daughter and I spent one night here - lovely! Very charming and comfortable. The best part was the full course breakfast that was actually served (not a buffet!), and it was delicious! Fruit, eggs, sausage, waffles, orange juice, and great coffee. Also, this is a pet-friendly place - big plus for me since I have to travel with my... More

My mother and I stayed here overnight, because we were in town for a wedding. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and I had the best night sleep. Soaking in the claw foot tub was the highlight of my trip! We stayed in the Gold Room. The Pink Room has a claw foot tub also. The... More

This was the seventh, and last, night of our road trip to Baton Rouge. After a long driving day, we arrived around 9:30 pm. Pat, the owner and innkeeper, greeted us warmly and, after brief conversation (it was late, and we were tired), we were directed to our upstairs rooms. Both rooms were roomy, quiet, and comfortable. In the morning,... More

This is our second trip to Monticello and first at the Denham House. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were celebrating our anniversary and the rose petals on the floor and bed were a nice touch. The room was very peaceful and the hospitality of Amy and Sandra was outstanding. We enjoyed the authentic bathroom with the claw foot tub.... More

Genuine hospitality from interesting owner Pat, and assistant Sandra. Unique experience, enjoying spacious, well cared for, home (circa 1870s), good breakfast. Recommend visiting organic Monticello Winery which is lovely property; muscadine grape reminds me of sherry. Also, new Ecology Park at bottom of Water street, & Florida’s best kept secret (Tallahassee) is only 25 miles away along excellent hwy 90.

My husband & I stayed here on a Thursday evening on our way to south Florida. This bed & breakfast was not as easily accessible to I-10 as I thought it would be. However, the drive there was picturesque. That evening, we hoped to find a local eatery with good food for dinner. Unfortunately, every thing in Monticello was closed... More

Thank for taking the time to write a review. We currently have three restaurants open on a Thursday night in Monticello. The third is a wonderful American cuisine with wines, huge ribeye steaks, chicken and fish with sauces. The fourth is a brand new restaurant opening next month. They and more of our popular home grown restaurants are listed on... More
