Wonderful Stay for Graduation
My family and I stayed at Pecan Planation for my daughters FSU graduation and we loved every minute of it. There were 7 of us and our dog and we all had plenty of room but still able to be together when we wanted to. The grounds and fresh vegetables Pam and John supplied to us were great. I definitely recommend this home for a stay. Travel to Tallahassee was 30-45 minutes but not a big deal for us. We truly enjoyed the environment and our hosts. Would definitely stay here again, Thank you a great weekend!
Perfect home and property for what we need.
On several fronts, this Home was perfect. Property was fenced and full of beautiful pecan trees, Home had great separation of bedrooms given 2 couples, fire pit for fires after dinner and great proximity to both north Florida and South Georgia.
Awesome Graduation Weekend!
We loved our stay at the Pecan Plantation. Pam and John were very welcoming and had everything ready for us. The house was amazing! We enjoyed the Jacuzzi and the fire pit! We would definitely stay here again. Even though we were only there for a few days it felt like we had been there for a week! It was so relaxing!
Rustic and relaxing home. The home is clean, well appointed and perfect for a family get together. The 10 acre fenced in property is perfect for bringing pets as well and leaves plenty of space for ball games. A great find!
A beautiful property and a very comfortable home .
The house had everything you would ever need in a home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked. The hot tub was a great way to relax. The house is on 10 acres of manicured grounds and the property is fenced. Our daughter's dog had the best time running free and exploring. After a full day, we enjoyed sitting by the outdoor fire pit. The hosts, Pam and Doc were gracious hosts. Definitely the place to stay if you are going to Tallahassee.

We rented this beautiful property for our son's graduation from FSU. It was so much better than the description or pictures! Check in was easy and everything you might need is already there. Had a wonderful barbecue with friends and family, sat by the fire, and then into the hot tub. Walked the property with all its flowers and vegetables...and the pineapples! The owners picked fresh vegetables which were delicious. Close to Tallahassee and perfect to visit family attending college in the area. Definitely planning a repeat visit.
Thank you Phillips family for the kind words. We love to share this very special slice of American rural living with an elegant flare. Hope to see you again in the near future. Dr. John
The rolling hills around Monticello offer one of the most serene and pastoral settings in Florida. Road and mountain biking are excellent, along with hunting, birding, hiking, and farm exploring. Close to Florida State University.
