At the Monmouth Historic Inn, the spirit of John Quitman, former owner and Mississippi governor, may be seen and felt in the lounge which bears his name. My husband and I were having drinks(non alcoholic) and snacks in the Quitman Lounge one afternoon, when I felt an icy caress on my right arm. The same thing happened to my daughter during a previous visit. While the mansion may be haunted and some of the staff may agree with this claim, I have, however, felt no fear - only welcome. The people that work here are extremely friendly, helpful, and happy - esp Hal, who supplied my husband with fishing gear for his daily visit to the pond and Miss Mary, who whips up wonderful southern breakfasts each morning. Rooms have been designed according to the historic period of Monmouth, but includes modern amenities which promote luxury - you get what you pay for here. Surprises occur while walking the grounds; the scent of wisteria, the yellow of daffodils, a family of ducks, a weathered gazebo, an herb garden. At night, the trees are lit with twinkling lights.
I enjoyed sitting at a wrought iron table situated in a cobblestone courtyard, a water fountain nearby, playing its unique melody. At Monmouth, I found time to dream.
