“Great Place, Great People, Great Food”
Reviewed 14 April 2011

First, be not deceived. Monmouth is a civil war plantation. It was owned and run by a slave owner. But the people who run this resort are forthcoming about that. There is no attempt to cover up the grimy details. Its a beautiful place from a sad bit of history in our country. We considered that before we stayed but we had business in the area and needed a break. We considered that as we stayed and talk about it a lot. We finally decided to consider it as much learning experience as vacation and that worked very well. We had the chance to soak in history in and around Natchez, we had the chance to meet some great people, we had a lovely time and yes, we learned a lot.

The resort itself is peaceful and the staff is willing to chat with you, take some time and talk about the history of the place. There are other historical sites around and they were kind enough to direct us to places of interest. The rooms are stunning and quiet. The service is second to none. There is plenty to see and to do and ... plenty to learn. Lots and lots of history.

Now the food. Chef Eric Sibley is a gem. A delightful person with an amazing amount of culinary ability. The dishes he created a singular. You'll not have this dining experience anywhere else in the country. We ate there for dinner TWICE when we could have easily tried other restaurants. Why bother? It was just that good. Chef Mary B. Taylor serves southern sunshine on a plate at breakfast. You have to have breakfast there to get the full story so please don't skip it. See mary for Breakfast, have a lite snack at lunch and come back for Chef Eric's dinner. The perfect foodie day.

So visit, stay, relax, enjoy and learn. That's what we did and we plan to go back soon. Its worth your while.

Room Tip: Get breakfast with your room.

We are staying at Monmouth Plantation for the first time and it is truly a beautiful place. We have found the staff to be very hospitable and helpful. The rooms. Are large and we were able to spend ine night in the Quitman Retreat. Which is absolutely magnificent with our own pond and fountain right in front of of cottage.
There is a very nice restaurant in the main plantation and the food is very good. Unfortunately, we ate there when there was a tour dining that evening and the noise was beyond belief, but I think it would be very romantic under better circumstances. It's location is very good for touring the beautiful mansions of Natchez and also very convenient to other eateries. It is definitely among the best of what Natchez has to offer.

We recently had the priviage of staying at Monmouth Plantation again after 11 years. It is even more beautiful and better run than then - We were extremely impressed. The grounds have been improved with beautiful gardens, the evening hordeuvres were tasty and the included breakfast was great, rooms beautiful and well cared for. If you have the opportunity to travel along the Mississippi make sure that Natchez ( a must!) and this wonderful hotel make your itinerary!

Room Tip: We love the cottages for their location and quiet

This was an anniversary stay and couldn't be more please. I let them know ahead of time that it was our anniversary. They arranged everything, including flowers at the table at dinner and an in-room massage for my wife. The dinner was excellent, though a bit lengthy. We really enjoyed walking the grounds, and couldn't help notice the spiritual emphasis. There are angel statues around the property, a small chapel area beside the pond, and scriptures in different areas. For you guys, bring your fishing rods to do some fishing while your wife is getting the massage. There were some nice bass in the ponds. I rate the sleep quality a 4 out of 5 because it wasn't as comfortable. But still OK. I would definitely recommend Monmouth and I'm sure I'll be staying there again in the future.

We were there the week between Christmas and New Year's. Spent an absolutely lovely night there in Gen. Quitman's own bedroom. My girlfriend now calls me the General, if that's any indication of how nice a time we had. The other reviews are correct: Roosevelt's mint juleps are luscious. I could drink them all night long. Well, until it was time for dinner at 1818, where we had a wonderful meal. Walked the grounds and relaxed. A great spot of Southern charm and hospitality, beginning, of course, with owners Ron and Lani, whose love for Monmouth and Natchez comes through in every detail. I hope to return to Natchez, and when I do, I am even more hopeful that I will spend yet another night at Monmouth.

It was a truly unique experience to spend a night in an antebellum plantation home. It has been beautifully restored, the room comfortable, the staff helpful and friendly. We spent the extra to stay in the main house rather than one of the out-buildings, which to us was worth the additional money. A full breakfast was included in the garden house. Be sure to walk the beautiful grounds.

The best thing about Monmouth is the staff. Everyone is charming and can't do enough for you. We stayed in June and it was very hot and humid, but had a great time fishing on site in the evening. I would also recommend going to the lounge for evening happy hour. The bartenders are very talkative and we had a fantastic time chatting to other guests.
The breakfasts were ok but the evening chef's table experience is definitely worth a try.
Our room was very clean and roomy, although the decor does need updating, but it did not detract from the overall experience.
