Cocktail Hour

Cocktail hour at Monmouth officially begins at 6:30 pm. Appetizers are served and guests of the hotel and locals of Natchez are invited for an hour of socializing and cocktails. Perhaps you'll want to try Roosevelt's famous Mint Julep. Your mint julep will be served in a frosty silver cup with mint grown here on Monmouth's grounds. This cocktail is made from a secret recipe he (Roosevelt) concocted over twenty years ago. When you meet Roosevelt, you will immediately understand why he has been given the coveted award from the state of Kentucky-- He is a true Kentucky Colonel!

Our Guests Say the Nicest Things

Monmouth Plantation - A Unique & Fabulous Place
Monmouth Plantation is not just a hotel. It is as an experience. Here we enter another world - the world of the old antebellum south - without injustice - only love joy kindness and good cheer. The staff reflects the spirit created by the owners Ron & Lani Riches. Monmouth at Natchez is an American treasure. Here the visitor can experience the authentic flavor of the old south - gone with the wind - but alive in the spirit of hospitality which is Monmouth. We highly recommend this unique and special place to everyone.

Butterflies and pansies abound in Monmouth's December gardens! Our guests, Lynn and Jim Cardinal (visited with us December 1st) emailed Monmouth this beautiful photograph taken on the patio surrounded by winter pansies and a butterfly still around at this late date! Larry Stewart our master gardner prepares our flower beds with year around blossoms. The rose gardens have been trimmed back to ready the plants for February blooming along with many of the bushes still flowering huge roses and budding flowers. December days at Monmouth have a welcoming and chilly winter feeling. Our gardens have blooming flowers, green grass , two sparkling ponds and decorations of the Holiday Season everywhere!
