We just made our reservations for FSU football season - our third year of staying with Troy and Gretchen on football weekends. Besides lovely accommodations, we feel so welcomed each time we are there. Gretchen treats me like a friend - inviting me to come along on errands or shopping trips, joining her for a glass of wine. It is... More

We had a lovely weekend and great breakfasts, which were served at 9am. I especially liked the baked french toast made with cream cheese & orange juice. Our bed had a pillow top and was very comfortable. The owners could not have been nicer and were very gracious about our late arrival. Parking is on the main street that runs... More

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

Troy and Gretchen were terrific hosts. We learned about their careers and travels, where Gretchen collected many of the whimsical decorative arts and antiques which adorn this late-Victorian mansion. My wife won this at a charity golf tournament, and we will definitely recommend this B&B to friends and relatives. I would describe the decor as "whimsical eclectic". There are some... More

Troy and Gretchen are like family you didn't know you had! I am normally more of a large luxury hotel person but when staying in small towns, like to do B&B's. 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!
