Monmouth Historic Inn
Bed and Breakfast

Natchez, Mississippi

Monmouth Historic Inn, a small luxury hotel is a glorious return to the antebellum South. Rated
"one of the top ten most romantic places in the USA" by Glamour magazine and USA Today

Named one of the "Top 50 U.S. Inns & B&Bs" by Zagat, this haven of tranquility awaits to enfold you in luxury and service.

The dream of its famous first owner, General John A. Quitman, was to create an atmosphere of permanence and peace amidst a changeable world. That dream has been fully realized through the loving and careful restoration of the mansion and eight other historic buildings providing thirty exquisite rooms and suites.

Visitors looking to savor 'a page from the past' laud guestrooms decked out in period   finery (in the main house, carriage house and other building), 'wonderful' staff that 'coddles you' and 'great dining' (one admirer 'spent hours in the kitchen with the chef watching her cook'); in sum, the 'perfect romantic getaway.'"

Twenty-six beautifully landscaped acres include pebble paths bursting with flowers, a white bridge gracing a small clean pond, Mississippi songbirds, and moss draped oak trees.

Every modern comfort has been provided in the elegantly appointed rooms, without detracting
from the historic architectural integrity of the plantation.

Many of the rooms have fireplaces and Jacuzzi baths.

Guest accommodations are provided in the main house, Courtyard Building, Garden Cottages, Carriage House, Plantation Suites, Quitman Retreat and Pond Cottages -- all carefully maintained in period style.

Overnight Stays include a plated and served full Southern Breakfast from 7am to 10am in the Garden Room. This area was constructed over the original location of Monmouth's Stables and has a lovely covered patio for those wishing to dine al fresco.

Nights sparkle under candlelight and hand cut crystal during five-course dinners that are repeatedly touted as "the best in Natchez."

At Restaurant 1818 you will dine in what was originally the Men's and Ladies’ Parlors of the Main House. These two parlors are adorned with authentic period crystal gasoliers. These impressive reproduction chandeliers and wall sconces were custom made for Monmouth by the artisans at Waterford Crystal in Ireland.

Guests have complete dining freedom when they reserve a table at Restaurant 1818. Here guests can select menu items on an a la carte basis from the gourmet appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and desserts offered that evening. A full wine list and wine by the glass program is available to ensure your dining experience is the very best Natchez has to offer!

Private dining by candlelight is also offered for 8 to 12 people at the main dining room table. This room exemplifies the elegant dining experience which has been customary since the days of John and Eliza Quitman.


A magical setting born from history, passion and dreams . . .

Romance is part of the Monmouth mystique and your wedding here will be a storybook affair to remember. Our onsite wedding coordinators can finesse every detail, from flowers to photography, to catering to budget. All that is required of you is to simply set the date and walk down the aisle.

Imagine getting married under a centuries-old oak tree draped in curtains of Spanish moss with the scent of honeysuckle perfuming the air. Perhaps you would prefer to exchange vows in a more meditative setting―our Sanctuary, styled as a Palladian Temple - was created for just such occasions.

Dance under a canopy of stars in our courtyard, or seat reception guests in our lavish main-house parlor for a catered after-wedding dinner. Whatever your wedding wishes may be, we can make them come true.
