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 Most Delightful Place to Stay!!"
It was such a treat to stay at Monmouth. We only had one night but I definitely want to return and stay 3-4 nights here. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The staff was the epitome of southern hospitality. We were greeted so warmly we felt like family. We stayed in the Pond Cottage and loved our room. Hal took us to our room and introduced us to the guests (sitting on the porch at the time) who were in the adjacent room. We had a wonderful time visiting with them then walked around the grounds before going to dinner. Bed was super comfortable and the room elegantly designed. View of the grounds from the rocking chair porch made me want to sit and relax for a while. (Next trip!) Breakfast was beyond delicious! Stuffed French toast batter dipped and deep fried....YUM! Best biscuits ever. The dining room is in a separate building and is so beautiful. They offer a free tour of the main building's 1st floor. If you love period design, you will love seeing this antebellum home. They have a restaurant in two of the rooms on the main floor, open for dinner only. Closed on Monday night so we missed it. This is my new favorite place for R&R. A total delight!
"Nice but not outstanding"
This was the hotel that I was most looking forward to on our road trip in June 2016 however it did not quite live up to expectations. We paid $215 plus taxes for one night and were allocated room 28 - Claiborne in the old coach house. The hotel and grounds were absolutely fabulous and we spent lots of time wandering around and taking photos. Our room was nice with a blue canopied bed and a sunken whirlpool bath but could have done with some routine maintenance, particularly in the bathroom which felt tired. There were a lot of scuffs etc in the room which needed attention and the whirlpool looked old and not that clean so we stuck to showers. We ate elsewhere but stopped for mint juleps in the study. They were tasty and we felt they were good value at $9 each. However, the study was empty apart from us and we felt a little unwelcome. Other guests kept coming in, taking photographs then leaving so as well as a lack of atmosphere it felt a litte bit like sitting in a museum. We soon drank up then went back to our room. In the morning we walked down to the separate dining area for the Southern breakfast. Like drinks the night before it was quiet and there was only a couple of other people in for breakfast. The cold selection was good and for the hot portion we both chose stuffed french toast, mine with ham and hubby with bacon. Sadly the French toast was flavourless, the bacon oily and the ham lukewarm and rubbery. The hotel and grounds were beautiful and have a long and rich history however there was some lack of attention to detail and a lack of atmosphere when taking drinks and breakfast. I'm glad I stayed here once but if returning to Natchez I would stay elsewehre in future.
This inn housed in an exquisite 1818 home was a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. They accommodated our breakfast needs and the room was clean and charming. Be sure to take the tour offered at 10 and 2 daily.
"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.
