Over Monmouth Historic Inn
Wat is er meer typerend voor 'The Deep South' dan de katoenplantages? In de Monmouth Historic Inn verblijft u in stijl, omringd door het verleden. En natuurlijk de prachtige groene tuinen! Vele eervolle vermeldingen vielen Monmouth al ten deel, waaronder 'een van de 10 meest romantische plekken in Amerika'. Het is gelegen in Natchez, nabij de Mississippi-rivier en in de omgeving bevinden zich katoenplantages die nog steeds in bedrijf zijn. Monmouth, een Nationaal Historisch Monument, beschikt over smaakvol ingerichte kamers en suites, elk voorzien van moderne gemakken zoals televisie en WIFI. De kamers en suites hebben hun klassieke charme behouden, het decor verwijst trots naar de roemruchte tijd van weleer. Verblijven hier is dan ook vooral een stap terug in de tijd, met behoud van comfort!

Natchez werd zo’n 250 jaar geleden gesticht en is daarmee de oudste nederzetting van de staat Mississippi. De invloeden van de Franse en Spaanse cultuur zijn nog ruimschoots in het straatbeeld aanwezig. Langs de rivier en door het oude stadscentrum kunt u fraaie wandelingen maken en oude plantagehuizen bewonderen.
"The South Will Rise Again !"
Monmouth Inn is located in the Quitman mansion built in 1818. The inn sits on 25 landscaped acres and is pleasantly restored. The Quitmans were a love match (11 children) but prior to their marriage the bride's father required him to sign a Pre-Nup agreement fearing his intentions. The entire home is open to overnight guests and staff member Ms. Gandy gave us a complete tour. We learned the derivation of the phrase "Mind your bees wax" : it comes from the risk to lady's makeup if they sat too near the fireplace (wax based makeup melts !) She also pointed out a love letter from General Q to his beloved. Houseman Hal added many interesting details and we were charmed to learn he feeds the deer around the property. Not all the rooms are in the main house and ours was in a row of new rooms facing a pond. The room was dominated by a giant 4 poster king bed draped with complicated silk swags. The bathroom had double sinks,, a modern spa tub and a separate shower. Alas, although new, some of the fittings were scratched. We ate dinner in the restaurant 1818 located in the main house. While the turkey gumbo was quite smokey in flavor and tasty, the biscuits did not taste homemade and the salad was limp. Nonetheless the service was good. Breakfast was served in a detached building. The buffet featured both hot and cold items. Oddly it lacked traditional items like Mayhaw jelly or fresh fruit. The room itself was pleasantly bland set:with tablecloths and silver. In sum I think the grounds, rooms and staff were the highpoint of my visit.
"Antiques and upmarket home style cuisine."
Lots of good things about Monmouth. The NYE dinner was very nice, with attentive service and good wine in a beautifully decorated dining home. The dining room decor demands smart casual - not shorts or tea shirts, for example. There is a more casual option, where the food is more casually presented too. We had the Miss Eliza suite in the main house; an antique furnished, French blue spacious suite, with two ensuite bathrooms. Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed and a garden view, however there was a problem with one of the two bathrooms. The room with a tub was above the kitchen and unfortunately the kitchen vent was outside the bathroom window. When in use, this caused the bathroom floor to vibrate and the noise could be heard throughout the bedroom. Also, there was an odour of oil, greasy evidence of which was on the window. Not a relaxing area to soak at all. Such a shame, as the bathrooms are fabulous otherwise. The other bathroom, with a double shower did not have any problems at all. The gardens are superb and the property well run for the most part, by the owners and staff. Breakfast needs improvement as it's a bit lack lustre and our boiled eggs took over 30 minutes. Nice touch to see the owners mingling with the guests.
"Merry Christmas Day!"
A merry Christmas was had by all. Three of us (77 yr old ladies) decided to share a holiday reunion at Monmouth. From the gracious greeting to the reluctant good-bye, we enjoyed fantastic service. We stayed in the main house in beautifully furnished bedrooms with gorgeous antiques and period draperies. After we settled in, we were treated to appetizers in a charming reception area with other guests from around the world. Christmas dinner was served in the awesome dining room. The food was delicious and the service impeccable! Thanks so much for everything! (suggestion: Handicap bars in bathtub/shower).
"A taste of American history"
This was a very enjoyable overnight stay en route to New Orleans and certainly added a touch of luxury to our American road trip. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the decor was authentically elegant. Quite expensive but certainly a worthwhile experience .
We spent Thanksgiving at Monmouth this year and had a wonderful time. The people were really nice, the breakfast was great, we enjoyed talking with the cook. It was really nice weather and we were able to walk the grounds and they were beautiful. We also enjoyed the bar and spending time with the bartender. He had some great stories and made a great mint julep. If I have one complaint it would be the appetizers offered in the evening. I would have expected more than cheese and crackers from such a beautiful setting. Also, I would have expected maybe some wine to be served. It was the only disappointment of the trip.
