We are located in Monticello Florida, just four blocks from the center of town and the historic 1910 county seat building and 1890's Perkins Opera House.

Monticello is the largest population center in Jefferson County. Activities include hiking, kayaking, biking, and antiquing at the local shops.
Florida State University is only a thirty five minute drive making the Monticello area a favorite of Seminole boosters during football and basketball season.
The Jefferson County Kennel Club is just a few miles north of town. The Jefferson County Public Library is located just three blocks west of the courthouse.
Take a step back in time. Welcome to Monticello Florida, a small North Florida town that will entice you with Southern hospitality so often missing in today's world. Monticello, Florida traces its roots back to 1827, when Jefferson county broke off from Leon, the future State Capital. A true town of the old South with a total citywide population of only 2,700 souls. This is the Florida of rolling hills, live oaks, and dripping, whispy, Spanish moss.
Historically, the City of Monticello has no equal in Northern Florida. Nestled among the tree lined streets of Monticello are many antebellum homes which provide a unique look and feel to the city. Please feel free to enter our image gallery to see over a hundred pictures of the area's homes and buildings.
During the Depression of the 1930s, many of the residents of Monticello could not afford to build new homes and the 19th century houses were renovated or restored. Today, these homes offer tourists a rare glimpse of the original architectural styles which prevailed in the South prior to the Civil War.
I own and operate the John Denham Home in Monticello Florida for the past 15 years. I also manage the beautiful JM Henry Mansion. Just call to book and discuss your plans.
Jerry Frederick / Pat Inmon purchased this house in 2008
Unique area of Florida, bought the home from the original owners granddaughter. The home was never before on the market
Complete refurbish of the home from 2008-2010. Complete exterior, all rooms, all bathrooms, kitchens, and furniture. Many of the original items still in the home.
Beautiful, rustic home. Walking distance to dining and shopping. Short drive to Tallahassee/FSU and Thomasville, GA.
My wife and I stayed at the property last year however, I just learned that they now have a website on which I can post a review so, I'm writing in. The Monticello House is a fantastic slice of history in a quite setting. Our king room was more than spacious, well decorated and comfortable. The kitchen accommodations were, likewise, as I expected with regards to a continental breakfast, hot coffee, etc. The distance from FSU was not a detriment and while obviously not as convenient as being "down town," we found that we enjoyed our weekend in Monticello. We would definitely stay here again.
I have stayed at this home 3 times now as I have visit the area on business. Home is great spot and close enough to Tallahassee and S. Georgia that it makes business between the cities quite easy.
The house is huge and well kept.... everything is there and it is a nice quiet retreat. We have had friends meet us there for weekends and do some bike rides.... very nice.
Not only is there the Monticello area for activities, but Thomasville Georgia and Tallahassee FL are only a quick 20 miles away that offer many museums, plantations to visit and historic sites.
