What a funny place Monticello is. Was surprisingly quaint and lovely. And the guest house was the same. Its a really beautiful building. We stayed in the gold honeymoon suite. Its like a step back in time (in a good way). Breakfast was great, and Pat the owner was helpful with suggestions for the surrounding area. Rev Café was great...

We stayed at the 1872John Denham House the weekend of the Rose Festival in Thomasville. The house has been meticulously restored and is well-maintained by the owner, Pat. Our stay was lovely. Pat is a most gracious hostess. She's unobtrusive but available when you need her. She's also a great cook - the breakfasts are really special. Our room (...

We only stayed here for one night and had a room with the kids room adjacent. The four poster bed was great and high. Need a step to get into bed which felt very regal. The house is lovely and the hostess was very friendly and had many recommendations on where to eat and what to do.

We stayed in the Magnolia Room. The rooms are large and the bed was king sized and comfortable. It was super clean which is very important to me!! The breakfast was really good, crustless quiche and scones with fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and juice. The 11 o'clock checkout was firm because their were guest coming right behind us. All the...

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Normally I hear how quiet it is here as we are located on a very quiet street in the middle of an acre of grounds. Our walls are 8 inches thick with real plaster and lathe. Sometimes as folks are checking in it can create noise going up and down the stairs but does...

We had a terrific time at this place. Everything was just what we needed to rest after a day on the bicycle. Highly recommended, great location, within walking distance to several restaurants. Breakfast was very good.

We really enjoy having the bicyclists stay and hearing their stories and adventures. We even do free laundry and "carb them up".

This B&B is billed as the most haunted in north Florida. It was built in 1872 and has very large rooms with private baths. We stayed 1 night in an upstairs room with a footed tub which led to a relaxing bubble bath. We had a quiet restful night with no hauntings, followed by a wonderful breakfast served by a...

A great overnight stop on your way North or South,or a special weekender, this historic home is attractive, gracious, and provides a genteel pause in your busy life. My room was spacious, with a huge high bed, good tv reception, and surprisingly quiet with a full house of guests. Outside porches offer pleasant relaxation, and nearby historic walks and drives,...
