My husband and I wanted a romantic place to stay on our way to pick up our daughter from a camp at FSU. This was a marvelous find! Best B&B we've ever stayed in! We were in the Gold Honeymoon/Anniversary room which was delightfully decorated and very comfortable. After a day of exploring the town and surrounding backroads, we enjoyed...

I found the John Denham House on TA. I was traveling alone for work, and Pat immediately made me feel comfortable like I was staying at my aunt's house. The rooms were spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Pat gave suggestions about what to eat and do nearby. I really enjoyed her hospitality. The full breakfast was better than...

We stayed in the gold room for one night as part of our honeymoon roadtrip from Orlando to New Orleans. After ten days at the theme parks in Orlando our one night here was much welcomed. It was so relaxing and quiet and the house itself is stunning. Loved "wine time" and the ice cold cokes and waters available for...

Yes! We get many honeymooners staying. That is why we have two bridal suites but all of the rooms are romantic. They get quiet, private time to themselves. We have a special candlelight breakfast with photos for our newlyweds. Thanks for the great review. Pat

I would highly recommend I love Bed and Breakfasts. I love this one in particular. It is a very well maintained, original home. It has a friendly vibe if you will. The rooms are spacious, clean and had special touches such as robes, slippers, and bubble bath. Pat is gracious with southern hospitality at its best. There was complementary wine...

Wow! You thought of everything! It makes me feel so good when guests notice how we try to think of all the amenities and atmosphere we have. The staff loves hearing about themselves in the reviews. Yes, our ghosts ( we are fortunate enough to have more than one) are delightful and friendly. Every good bnb has a ghost or...

Where do I start? The place is absolutely charming and historic and the service was superb. We stayed in the Blue Room, which according to some articles is the epicenter of some haunting a at this charming B&B. However, we did not get any activity at all. We did however wake up to the best breakfast I've had this far...

We stayed a nite at the Denham house b&b recently. It was a very pleasant visit. The room (and all of the inn) was clean and roomy and attractive. Bedding very comfortable also. It was a spur of the moment stop but Pat couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. We enjoyed a glass of wine on arrival and a...

We have stayed at B&B accommodations all over the U.S. We enjoyed our stay at 1872 John Denham House. Pat is a terrifc hostess and clearly wants her guests to feel welcomed and well served.

This was my second time here and both times felt very welcome. We did a last minute booking and they were able to accommodate us and my doggy.

The shower has been fixed - we had been waiting on parts. So glad you and your dog enjoyed your stay. I don't think our ghosts are quite that active - but he must have definitely been entertained! Hope to see you again soon. Pat

For my birthday my husband and I stayed two nights. We stayed in the beautifully decorated and spacious Lacy room on the first floor.
