This is our second trip to Monticello and first at the Denham House. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were celebrating our anniversary and the rose petals on the floor and bed were a nice touch. The room was very peaceful and the hospitality of Amy and Sandra was outstanding. We enjoyed the authentic bathroom with the claw foot tub....

Genuine hospitality from interesting owner Pat, and assistant Sandra. Unique experience, enjoying spacious, well cared for, home (circa 1870s), good breakfast. Recommend visiting organic Monticello Winery which is lovely property; muscadine grape reminds me of sherry. Also, new Ecology Park at bottom of Water street, & Florida’s best kept secret (Tallahassee) is only 25 miles away along excellent hwy 90.

We stayed at this lovely house en-route from New Orleans to Clearwater. A very quiet location just off the main street. Pat, our host was most welcoming and made a lovely English breakfast, a nice reminder of home. The room was well presented and very comfortable.We ended the evening sitting on the veranda watching the fireflies and a very large...

My husband & I stayed here on a Thursday evening on our way to south Florida. This bed & breakfast was not as easily accessible to I-10 as I thought it would be. However, the drive there was picturesque. That evening, we hoped to find a local eatery with good food for dinner. Unfortunately, every thing in Monticello was closed...

Thank for taking the time to write a review. We currently have three restaurants open on a Thursday night in Monticello. The third is a wonderful American cuisine with wines, huge ribeye steaks, chicken and fish with sauces. The fourth is a brand new restaurant opening next month. They and more of our popular home grown restaurants are listed on...

If you love the elegance and comfort of Old South lodgings with modern conveniences that do not shade their authenticity, this is the place. The owner is a wonderful hostess, and the staff are divine. I was in tears listening to them describe their town as one big extended family. The B&B is full of antebellum charm, comfortable beds, and...

Very nice owner, beautiful well kept home. The town is small with allot of history. The kids especially enjoyed exploring the town in the evening. Everything is in walking distance. Our room was comfortable and accommodated 2 adults and 3 kids comfortably. The breakfast she cooked us was amazing!

I booked a room here because it offered a room with a king sized bed AND another bed in the same room, and since I was traveling with my 89 year old dad, it looked perfect! Right after I booked it online, the owner, Pat, was kind enough to call me to be sure my dad was able to walk...

Bed was extra comfortable. Found the property to be very clean and welcoming. The owner gave us lots of local info and recommended a good place to eat. Breakfast was great, especially the locally made sausage. If there is a drawback it would have to be the wood floors. It's almost impossible to be quiet as not to disturb the...

We arrived at the house Thursday evening and we were greeted by Pat who showed true southern hospitality. She gave us a tour of the house and showed us to our room. During the tour of the house she gave us some recommendations on her favorite local places to eat. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and it was gorgeous....
