“Lovely home and lovely hosts”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

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 apart.

I felt more like a guest in a friend's (very nice) home, than a paying customer. The morning breakfast was lovely both days and we could come and go as if we lived in the house. Plus, we got to learn so much about the town because Gretchen works to preserve the old buildings which is something I think is important.

We were in the garden room (upstairs first left door) which had an extremely comfortable bed and tons of feather pillows (my favorite). No tub, just a shower but surrounded by a wrap around outside porch which if we had had more time, we would have loved to sit on. The grounds are really pretty and the house is decorated lovely.

And the price was really great!

Truly a nice weekend!

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 and plenty of room for my kids to play and run. Gretchen makes tasty and hearty home made breakfasts with hot coffee and local produce. The Avera-Clarke House is kid friendly and rivals Disney for service and hospitality! :)

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!
