My husband and I stayed at the John Denham house on our wedding night. It was very beautifyl and exactly what you are looking for in a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was outstanding, our host was very welcoming and we really enjoyed her company. We would definatly come back and stay again. Maybe for an anniversary? :-)

We had a great time, the room was perfect except bed a little to hard for me, the service, valued cleanliness were beyond perfect. Breakfast I have to say was the first time I have stayed anywhere where I cleaned my plate and could have stuffed myself, Pat outstanding job, would love the recipe for your pecan French toast. Will definitely be coming back.

My husband, 10 year old daughter and I stayed 4 nights during Easter break. We are looking forward to returning for another 5 nights this July. This B&B is ideally situated off a quiet street, within easy walking distance of the main street in Monticello. We stayed in the pretty first floor Lacy Suite, which boasts an elegant four-poster bed with white lace coverlet. The en-suite has a gorgeous claw-foot bathtub. We paid an additional nightly fee to rent the large adjoining bedroom / study, where our daughter slept. There are many authentic touches, with tasteful, well-maintained décor throughout. I would just add that the home-cooked breakfasts were the highlight of our stay! Pat and her delightful housekeeper could not have been more solicitous for the comfort of their guests. We loved the freshly made coffee and juice, the homemade lemon-curd, waffles, scrambled eggs, fruit cups... I could go on. Breakfast was elegantly served at a large dining table around which all the guests dined. Pat puts guests at ease by introducing them and then leaving them to chat around the table. This B&B is a very special vacation experience, unlike any other in which I have stayed. You will not be disappointed.

There are several "little" features which made Denham House a standout: our room was spacious with high ceilings + plenty of floor space; the mirrored medicine cabinet in the bathroom was high enough and the light bright enough that shaving was a breeze (I'm 6'2" + really appreciate that); the room's furnishings meant we each had a comfy chair to sit on; Pat, our innkeeper was gracious, informative and made super breakfasts, and; the home is set back from the main road adding to the peaceful atmosphere.

As a business taveler, I've been a frequent guest over the past few years. Nice, clean rooms, great breakfasts, relaxing atmosphere, and the best hostess around. The Denham House is always a welcome change of pace, and the town of Monticello in a refreshing step back in time.

Requested over and over these waffles are made like Grandma used to make from scratch with beaten egg whites and served hot from the waffle iron. The large plentiful pecans are grown from trees in the yard or locally and melted real butter and warm syrup puts guests in heaven. They are served with homemade breakfast sausage from local locker plants and local yard eggs. I also have fresh fruit salad every morning. The apple-pecan/Kahlua icing mini muffins run a close second for popularity. Come Enjoy!
