Monmouth Plantation, 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.
Mornings begin with a delightful complimentary Southern breakfast full
of special treats and prepared by a kindly, cheerful staff. Very special is the thought
that goes into all the guest amenities, whether it's the full breakfast, the unique soaps
and creams provided with luxurious robes; the cocktail service featuring freshly mixed
mint juleps, the complementary hors d'oeuvres, or the chocolates and turned-down covers
that say, "We're glad you're here. Sweet dreams."
Nights sparkle under candlelight and hand cut crystal during five-course dinners that are repeatedly touted as "the best in Natchez."
Regina Charboneau, our Executive Chef, plans the menu daily and often incorporates
regional favorites that are prepared in her contemporary Southern style.
Monmouth is listed as a National Historic Landmark, and is the perfect starting place for an adventure in Natchez, one of the South's enduring treasures--a town that combines pre-Civil War elegance with gracious hospitality.
With conference space for up to 100, corporations and organizations find Monmouth perfectly suited for business meetings in an unharried atmosphere.
Every season at Monmouth is laden with its own special quality and
enjoyments. However, hristmas holds a very special place in the hearts of owners Ron and
Lani Riches, who turn the mansion into a holiday treasure and a joyous experience.
Whatever the time of year or reason for coming to Monmouth, you will thoroughly enjoy your stay; and as many of our guests have discovered, your first visit will not be your last.
