Our Guests Say the Nicest Things!

Two sisters recently visited Monmouth and celebrated a very important birthday. These are the personal comments that Nancy H. made about their stay with us! -Peggy Voss

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get to stay at an antebellum mansion? Have you ever watched Gone With the Wind and been enthralled by the beauty of the Tara? Local Boca Raton resident, Nancy H., and her sister, Diane S., of Clinton, Indiana, recently traveled to Natchez, Mississippi, to experience the best of Southern hospitality staying at the Monmouth Plantation. Upon arrival in Natchez and driving up the gorgeous driveway of the Monmouth located at 36 Melrose Avenue, one is instantly exposed to the beauty of the South with the trees, foliage, beautiful flowers, and gardens that surround this majestic mansion. But, as much as the natural beauty of this awesome historic home is breathtaking, one is immediately welcomed by the warmest, friendliest staff who make the entire visit at Monmouth unforgettable. By the time you leave Monmouth you will feel like family and want to return to these grounds to see them all again. We stayed in the Chapultepec Suite which was perfect having its own fireplace with a patio that overlooked the beautifully manicured grounds that have fountains, hammocks, beautiful pergola, statues, croquet, amazing gardens, beautiful oaks and Spanish moss everywhere, private family cemetery, white bridge over the pond leading to walking truly has to see it all to believe the beauty that prevails around Monmouth.

The history of Monmouth and the numerous historic homes in Natchez is both heartwarming and heart-wrenching and the visitor is so immersed in the prewar and Civil War history that one will find themselves conversing about their tours and even dreaming about the people who lived over a century ago in the beautiful South. And, sleeping at the Monmouth plantation has been reputed to be the best and I can say that have not slept so soundly as I did during my visit to Monmouth.The amenities of full Southern breakfasts, candlelight dinners, tour of the historic mansion, and a beautiful Victorian Gift Shop just add further sparkle to a stay at this National Historic Landmark, Monmouth Plantation.
