We decided to make a trip down the Mississippi River. I was born in a town on the Mississippi in Minnesota and we were going in search of retirement areas and Natchez sounded like an interesting area. Our friends said "you are going to Mississippi in the summer???"
What an enjoyable stay we had at Monmouth Plantation! If you love antiques and history you have to love this. The gardens are beautiful, our room, the elegant bar, the beautiful 1818 dining room, all were a prime Southern Experience. Jacklyn was a prime example of southern hospitality!
The people in the south are so warm and friendly, they tend to melt us northerners!
My husband and I have been reading Greg Iles and had to check out some of his references to Natchez. We loved the "Under the Hill" area and had a great lunch at the Magnolia Grill. We did not go in the "Saloon" but took pictures.
We also had a lovely dinner at the King's Tavern-said to be haunted but we, alas, did not get to see the ghost!
