I recently visited Natchez, Miss. for a wedding, and took the opportunity to stay at Monmouth Plantation. This is an exquisitely beautiful antebellum plantation that has been lovingly restored and now functions as a B & B.
The grounds are expertly maintained. The history of the plantation is prominent, and the emplyees are quite knowledgeable. The current owners have gone to great lenghts to maintain authenticity: they built new rooms in the early 1980s on the site of prior buildings from the original plantation. Tours of the main house are offered on a regular basis, and are fascinating.
Complimentary Cocktails are served each evening, although I was not able to take advantage of that. The main dining room (exquistely appointed) is where dinner is served, although my schedule did not allow that either.
My room was beautifully decorated, including a four poster bed, and period antiques. Service was excellent; what we all expect from a four diamond establishment.
All in all, I had a wonderful time, and would definitely return again.
Thanks to all the good people at Monmouth for a wonderful visit!
