Wonderful breakfast and service. Tried very hard to service and please. Great food. Bed is a ralph Loren pillow top that you sink into w a down comforter. Enjoyed the night monticello is 30 minutes from Tallahassee and a great stay for the cost. Good history

This was the first experience in a bed and breakfast for my wife and I. Pat is wonderful, knows a lot about the history of not only the house, but very knowledgeable about Monticello and the surrounding area! She knows the best places to eat in the area, had a great dinner. Breakfast at the John Denham house was second...

My friend and I headed this direction to enjoy a "girlfriends" weekend....not to be disappointed. The food was wonderful and Pat was so personable and gave us a print out of the shops, eateries in town. After telling her of our favorites, the "junk" shops, she directed us to the best ones. We spent the day there and headed up...

We spent the weekend at this wonderful home and got to enjoy the r&r that this small town provides. Our host was most kind and provided us with all the amenities we could have and more. Not only was the room clean and the bedding most comfortable, but the bathroom was fully stocked with everything we could have and even...

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and charming. The blueberry pancakes and locally made sausage was the best! We came for the color run in Tallahassee. The driving tour of historical homes in Monticello was fun.

No point repeating what others have said about The John Denham House - it's a really nice place to stay with all the usual creature comforts. What makes it unusual is the location. Monticello is a charming little town not far from the Interstate, but far enough that you will feel as though you have stepped back in time. When...

You said it perfectly. Another visitor from across the pond. Monticello has three homegrown restaurants that are great food with great prices. Most are open 5 to 6 nights a week and are not chain food. I have a list and a map to them to hand to guests. Thanks for the wonderful compliments. I am sure your review is...

We love having all our international guests stay. We love all our guests as well. Thanks for all the kind words. The Wi-Fi is only weak I found out if the power goes out and then comes back on. Which rarely happens thank goodness. All I have to do is reset it and I am here to do that ....

We arrived late in the evening, and XXX welcomed us in a perfect way. The room was very nice and clean. The bed was simply huge! My boyfriend is 2 meters tall and he looked small in that bed. Breakfast was abundant and excellent, expecially the cake with eggs and sausage and the fresh croissant. The wi-fi is a little...

Lovely home, lovely host, lovely historic town. My daughter and I were on our way to visit FSU and I decided I'd rather stay in a lovely spot outside town, rather than stay in a mediocre hotel by the interstate.
