We had a terrific time at this place. Everything was just what we needed to rest after a day on the bicycle. Highly recommended, great location, within walking distance to several restaurants. Breakfast was very good.

We really enjoy having the bicyclists stay and hearing their stories and adventures. We even do free laundry and "carb them up".

This B&B is billed as the most haunted in north Florida. It was built in 1872 and has very large rooms with private baths. We stayed 1 night in an upstairs room with a footed tub which led to a relaxing bubble bath. We had a quiet restful night with no hauntings, followed by a wonderful breakfast served by a...

A great overnight stop on your way North or South,or a special weekender, this historic home is attractive, gracious, and provides a genteel pause in your busy life. My room was spacious, with a huge high bed, good tv reception, and surprisingly quiet with a full house of guests. Outside porches offer pleasant relaxation, and nearby historic walks and drives,...

Stayed overnight at this hidden gem during a solo trip from New Orleans to Charleston, SC. Wonderful home and the owner is incredibly accommodating. Wine and various other drinks / snacks are provided. Numerous areas to lounge relax, the front porch in particular is a great evening place to unwind. Highly recommend this beautiful home for a quiet and relaxing...

We had a comfortable bed in a quiet room and we loved it. The house is a traditional historic property and Pat cooked us a great American breakfast after we had been for a run around Monticello, which is a sweet historic town. She also gave us good restaurant recommendations and was a relaxed host. We really enjoyed our stay...

We arrived a little late to Monticello, so we didn't get a good look around to see what options there are, but this bed and breakfast is nice. Bad weather was approaching, but we wanted to eat dinner, and Pat, the owner of the B&B, gave us a suggestion that was very close and very good. When we returned, we...

It was amazing how everyone stayed instead of outrunning the hurricane. We were able to still get out coffee and a great breakfast and enjoyed the good company. Please come see us again when there is no hurricane and you can get the full five star treatment. Thanks for your kind remarks. Pat

My daughter and I spent one night here - lovely! Very charming and comfortable. The best part was the full course breakfast that was actually served (not a buffet!), and it was delicious! Fruit, eggs, sausage, waffles, orange juice, and great coffee. Also, this is a pet-friendly place - big plus for me since I have to travel with my...

My mother and I stayed here overnight, because we were in town for a wedding. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and I had the best night sleep.

This was the seventh, and last, night of our road trip to Baton Rouge. After a long driving day, we arrived around 9:30 pm. Pat, the owner and innkeeper, greeted us warmly and, after brief conversation (it was late, and we were tired), we were directed to our upstairs rooms. Both rooms were roomy, quiet, and comfortable. In the morning,...
