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 the railway line came through, Monticello was a wealthy town with connections to the Jefferson family (hence the name) and it shows in the many charming houses. Although the railway is long gone, it's been replaced with a bike trail through the town. There is even an Opera House which has recently been restored and is used as a charming theatre for a local company. The town is rather lacking in restaurants but Tallahassee is close enough that you can always drive there in the evening and it's a really pretty, but quiet, country road. If you are planning to visit Tallahassee, this would be the place to stay.
