“peaceful historic house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

we enjoyed staying in this lovely old historic house although we did not stay in the house itself but in one of the cottages that surround the house. there are only a few rooms in the house for guests. our cottage was pond cottage only a few steps from the main house. the room was spacious clean and very comfortable. for breakfast we had to walk a short distance to the breakfast room which is great when the weather is fine but we needed to drive to it on our second morning as it was pouring and we would have been drenched by the time we had walked. all guests can have a free guided tour of the house every morning about ten o'clock which is taken by one of the very knowledgeable staff. the grounds of the house are beautiful and we spent a few peaceful days here

Room Tip: any room would be great

Beautifully situated, grand old home surrounded by ancient trees dripping with Spanish Moss. Very welcoming staff upon check-in, both front desk, Laura, and Mr. Hal, who escorts you to your accommodations and is available to meet your slightest whim. Found Pond Cottage both charming and comfortable (great linens, separate tub/shower). Its locale afforded us the luxury of enjoying the rocking chairs on the porch while watching grandchild fish (tackle is complimentary at front desk) with the owner "Walter", and observing the native egrets who've made Monmouth's two ponds their home. Enchanting grounds, complete with family cemetery, lend a mysterious air to the property. Dinner at 1818 was delicious - our filets were cooked perfectly. Our waitstaff, Dianna, was more than happy to accommodate side substitutions for our eight-year-old granddaughter who also enjoyed a filet and shrimp and grits as an appetizer. She declared them the best she'd ever tasted. Dinner was so pleasant, we cancelled our plans for dining elsewhere the next night and remained on property dining once again at 1818. Again, the food delighted us, especially the gumbo, truly some of the best we've ever eaten. So good in fact, that our granddaughter ordered a second bowl to share for our appetizer. Our only disappointment came at breakfast. The setting is lovely with optional dining on the beautiful arbor-covered porch or inside at well appointed tables. However, some of the staff (not the young lady) seemed to have missed THEIR morning coffee. (The breakfast is included in the price of accommodations, so perhaps the staff is not on the receiving end of adequate compensation for their efforts, thus their lack of such. Perhaps a tab could be brought to the table, indicating price of breakfast, yet showing no balance owed. Then patrons would know an appropriate amount to tip.) Arriving at the door to the dining room after a delightful walk on a narrow pea gravel path through lovely fountains and plantings, we waited at the door with four or five staff buzzing about and only three other tables occupied. Finally we were instructed to sit where we liked. We waited and waited. Finally a young man came and offered coffee. No one mentioned the self-serve juice/fruit bar inside. I had no placemat nor silverware/napkin and had to ask for them. The eggs and bacon were cooked nicely, but the grits were watery and could have been wonderful, had they been prepared with milk or cream. The biscuits were oversized, bland and uninteresting. With not much adjustment, this breakfast could be made delicious. As a side note, granddaughter picked seven or so pears from the trees by Pond Cottage and I made a most delicious pear jam from them. Perhaps the staff could do the same and offer with breakfast as a charming accompaniment. All in all, a lovely stay, and somewhere we'd like to visit again.

What a wonderful place to stay and relax! Nice and friendly people and qualified service. It is different and you will enjoy it. The house, the cottages, the gardens and the food are an experience to remember when you are back home in cold weather. I hope we can come back one day.

Quiet, peaceful and historical place. We enjoyed our night there last Saturday as it truly is a step back in time. It was elegant and what one would picture of the "Old South." Wealth of that era cannot be believed until you see it. Worth the time to come here and enjoy a bit of the past.

Lovely stay AT THE monmouth historic inn.
Romántic.
If you travel with Children remember to ask of additional accommodations.
Super nice staff
Don't forget to see all the antebellum houses and plantations.
Not to many places to have dinner with children specially if you arrive late.

Everything about Monmouth is a positive. We stayed for 3 night is Cottage 36 and when we return, we will request that cottage. The staff, accommodations, and breakfast were superb. Be sure to do the tour of the main house. The grounds are beautiful and very manicured. What we enjoyed also was being able to enjoy the different area of the outdoors. When we visit Natchez again, we will stay at Monmouth.

One of the sites we stayed on a recent anniversary trip... my wife and I had been here before on a previous stay when the site was under previous management. The grounds are well kept - very picturesque. There is a tour of the main house which we did not do again but do recommend for first time visitors. This is a National Historic Landmark dating back to 1818. A definite highlight of a visit to Natchez.
