Martha and Jean-Michel -- As first-timers visiting your wonderful home, business, restaurant last night, I wanted to say "Thank You" on behalf of our happy group of friends. What a refreshing pleasure and contrast it was to come and visit you -- and avoid the crowds of over-booked turn-the-tables-quickly Tallahassee restaurants. It was such a lovely and relaxing evening…….beautiful setting……terrific service and special attention…..gourmet-level customized meal…..fine spirits……..awesome dessert……and, we were just so happily wowed. We know that we'll always remember our 'first time' with you --- but it will be just that…..only the first time. We expect to be back -- regularly……. Thank you for your new friendship and your wonderful treatment of us all for a unique and memorable Valentine's Day…. Cheers -- and know that we will selectively spread the word…. all our best, Ron

I took my wife to the Cottage B&B for a special Birthday dinner. Martha and Jean-Michel, the charming innkeepers, gave us a very delightful and memorable dining experience. We started off with a wonderful salad and homemade rosemary bread. We progressed to a fabulous jerk-maple salmon with an extraordinary side of brandy cream rice and asparagus, tinged with a light tangerine sauce. "Super delicious"! We ended the evening with a luscious mint chocolate cake. The evening couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you for making my wife's Birthday extra special. "Cheers"!

Dear Martha and Jean M. - We just wanted to thank you for a lovely stay. We enjoyed everything, your special home, the delicious food, but mostly your words of wisdom. Thanks again and see you soon. Many blessings. Andrew and Claudia

What an unexpected pleasure to have dinner at The Cottage for a belated Valentine's Dinner. The sauce on the shrimp was incredible, the sweet potatoe soufflé was perfect - not too sweet. Coupled with a salad and wonderful wine the dinner was divine. Then Martha's signature chocolate cake was a perfect end to a perfect night. Great friends, great food in a lovely spot! Kudos to Martha and Jean Michael. We plan to come back! Best, D Rich

We had an absolutely wonderful home cooked meal. We were fortunate that Martha and John Michael were able to spend time chatting with us at night and in the morning, when they prepared us a light delicious breakfast before we took the "long" trek back to Tallahassee and reality. We were very, very pleasantly surprised at this gem in Monticello, nay in the entire big bend region. If you are looking for a unique B&B that has reasonable prices, two owners that treat you like family and a charming decor then check this place out.
