My wife and I stayed for two nights for our 10th anniversary trip. It certainly lived up to expectations and it was fortunate we booked early, because this was Spring Break as well as the Natchez Spring Pilgrimage tour of homes.
Monmouth is one of several antebellum homes in the area. It has a large property, an 1818 main mansion, several other accomodations on site, and a spectacular garden. This is great for a romantic trip as well as historic interest. We stayed in the Quitman room, which is one of the antebellum rooms. It was well furnished with antiques, and there were plenty of amenities in the room such as the bathrobes and tolietries.
For our first night, we ate dinner at the Chef's Table, which is one of two dining experiences available for dinner at Monmouth. It is certainly not cheap, but it is great for a special occasion. We enjoyed the five course meal with other like minded guests by candlelight. The dinner is actually served in a formal dining room in the main mansion. Breakfast is served in a building that is reached by a nice stroll in the garden. It is a full breakfast and a good way to start the day.
All of the staff which we encountered were pleasant. I could tell that they enjoyed working here, and to them, I say "Thank you for the wonderful experience at Monmouth!"
Needless to say, I highly recommend Monmouth Plantation
