How to Get There
While in Natchez celebrating our anniversary, we stayed at Monmouth. It has all the luxuries of a fine hotel, with the character and ambiance of a bed and breakfast.
Our room, the Andrew Jackson room, was not in the main house, but above what was the kitchen when the house was originally built. There was a balcony on one side that overlooked the lovely grounds, and a window that overlooked the courtyard on the other side of our room. The room was decorated with period furniture, but very comfortable and clean... when I see photos of draperies around a bed, I automatically assume they're dusty, and fortunately, that was definitely not the case. The bathroom was updated with the modern luxuries you'd expect to enjoy at any nice hotel. We had a lovely view of the courtyard on one side of our room, and a view of, and balcony overlooking the gardens on the other side of our room.
Included in the stay was a free breakfast and free tour of the house. The breakfast consisted of two eggs, cooked to our liking, a biscuit, grits, our choice of meat, fresh fruit and cereal. It was all delicious. Breakfast is served in the beautiful restaurant at the back of the property.
Wendy gave a group of us the house tour, which was interesting and informative and lasted about 45 minutes. There were a few miscellaneous decorative pieces in the house that belonged to the Quitman family, and two stunning Waterford gasoliers. During the tour, we learned the story of the Quitman family. John Quitman was a General in the Mexican-American War, who later served in the Senate and as governor of Mississippi. Most inspiring was the letter he wrote to his wife, Eliza, declaring his love for her while he was off fighting the war.
We were free to walk the beautiful grounds and relax. In addition to the courtyard, there was also seating in adirondacks around the pond, rocking chairs on the balcony by our room, and a gorgeous trellis that's covered in wisteria (which wasn't in bloom but I can only imagine how breathtaking it must be when it is in bloom).
Complimentary h'ors d'oeuvres were served between 5:00 and 7:00 in the Quitman Lounge. We missed them by a hair, but did enjoy a mint julep and small talk with George, the bartender. He's a treasure!
We've found our new favorite place to stay in Natchez!
The Monmouth Historic Inn is like no other! First off the grounds are absolutely beautiful! To stroll around them certainly takes you back in time. The room was everything you hoped it would be! Sheer elegance. There was both a shower and hot tub in our bathroom. The furniture was elegant. Needless to say the room was spotless. The staff were super attentive and very sweet. Our breakfast the next day was in a totally different garden building. It was very quaint. I had French Toast and it was the BEST I have ever tasted. Roosevelt manned the bar and he did a great job. Keep up the good work Roosevelt. Best stay! Check it out.
Beautifully restored antebellum house in wonderful gardens. Our room was in a building outside but was clean and comfortable with a small patio. It was lovely to relax and take in the surroundings. Breakfast was great. I only had fruit and yoghurt but it was fresh and beautifully presented. A couple of slight negatives however. On arrival a gentleman showed us to our rooms. Help with bags was not offered and would have been appreciated. Staff were fine overall but not especially friendly or engaging which surprised me as different from most places we stayed at this trip.
Celebrated 50th anniversary and what a wonderful weekend
The house and grounds were so beautiful
The garden cottages were beautifully decorated and very comfortable love the rockers on the porch were so nice
to sit and just peacefully rock
Walking in the gardens was so restful
Time seemed to stand still and it was great
The staff was very friendly and saw to every need
Breakfast and Hapoy Hour was also very good
No hurrying just relaxed fun
The big house is so historic over 200 years old the tour was informative and the house beautiful
Highly recommend Monmouth for special occasions
For our Deep South roadtrip we wanted to stay at an Antebellum/Plantation house at least once, and we were not disappointed during our two night stay at this amazing property! We stayed in the Pond Cottage in the Rosalie Quitman suite, a two bedroom suite with a lovely porch and a huge bathroom. Rooms aren't very big but include all the modern amenities you'd need. The hearth in the main bedroom was a nice touch and very welcome as it got quite cold on our second night. The propery is incredibly beautiful and well kept. A tour of the main house is included for overight guests, and our tour guide Wendy was very knowledgable and told us about the Quitman family and the house in an amazing way. The bar was great, with nice hors d'oeuvres and George made some of the best cocktails we had on our trip! If you're looking for a special stay, this is it!
