Everything about this property was charming! The grounds are lovely, the accommodations are spacious and comfortable, breakfast was wonderful, the location is very convenient to town, and the innkeeper, Pat, was delightful. Will definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and charming. The blueberry pancakes and locally made sausage was the best! We came for the color run in Tallahassee. The driving tour of historical homes in Monticello was fun.

No point repeating what others have said about The John Denham House - it's a really nice place to stay with all the usual creature comforts. What makes it unusual is the location. Monticello is a charming little town not far from the Interstate, but far enough that you will feel as though you have stepped back in time. When the railway line came through, Monticello was a wealthy town with connections to the Jefferson family (hence the name) and it shows in the many charming houses. Although the railway is long gone, it's been replaced with a bike trail through the town. There is even an Opera House which has recently been restored and is used as a charming theatre for a local company. The town is rather lacking in restaurants but Tallahassee is close enough that you can always drive there in the evening and it's a really pretty, but quiet, country road. If you are planning to visit Tallahassee, this would be the place to stay.

You said it perfectly. Another visitor from across the pond.
Monticello has three homegrown restaurants that are great food with great prices. Most are open 5 to 6 nights a week and are not chain food. I have a list and a map to them to hand to guests. Thanks for the wonderful compliments. I am sure your review is large help to travelers on I 10 interstate.

My family and I booked this B&B because it looked great on the photos. When we arrived we were immediately impressed with the reception and welcome we received. We were greeted with fresh cookies and wine! What a treat after 7 hours of travelling. The hostess made us feel free to treat the house as our own and we really appreciated being able to look around the house. Our room was huge and there are lots of little treats and luxuries. The breakfast was also good. The town is very pretty and we were pleasantly surprised by Northern Florida and woul happliy return to the area and to the B&B. We all agreed this was the best B&B of our holiday. Thank you

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms were really big and ideal for a family

We love having all our international guests stay. We love all our guests as well. Thanks for all the kind words.
The Wi-Fi is only weak I found out if the power goes out and then comes back on. Which rarely happens thank goodness. All I have to do is reset it and I am here to do that . Thanks again, Pat

We arrived late in the evening, and XXX welcomed us in a perfect way.
The room was very nice and clean. The bed was simply huge! My boyfriend is 2 meters tall and he looked small in that bed.
Breakfast was abundant and excellent, expecially the cake with eggs and sausage and the fresh croissant.
The wi-fi is a little bit slow, but works fine in the common areas. In the rooms the signal is very weak.

Monticello is a very nice town, and quite lively for its size.
We will definitely come back if we pass by this area again!

Room Tip: We had the chance to visit all the rooms, and all looked very nice.
