Daffodale House - Monticello Florida

The Haunted Daffodale House


The History

The Daffodale House was the original name of this Victorian beauty built in 1897. The first owner is said to have been a rich banker and politician who had wanted a house befitting his position in the community. Later on, the house has been embellished by the owners that followed. Since 2006, the current owners, the Ebberbachs, have re-created a painted lady B & B offering three themed rooms. The nostalgia filled B&B is also comprised of a small entry music room, an antique store, the grand dining hall, the library and Victorian Tea room and is set on 3 acres of gorgeous grounds

The Hauntings

The Daffodale House Estate Bed & Breakfast is a unique accommodation nestled in the heart of Historic Monticello Florida, one of the state's most haunted cities. The Daffodale House, built in 1897, is said to be incredibly haunted, first detected when the current owners, The Ebberbachs, started renovations. According to them, strange music is heard from the Safari room. Aromas of a pipe smoke is often noted in the air near the elevator. In addition a woman dressed in white is often seen on the premises. The lights in the front room turn on by themselves back on after they were turned off. Much of the paranormal activity in the house seems to center around the attic. On many occasions, the innkeepers have heard someone walking there. 

One of the teams sensed the presence of a ghostly family with a young child. There's also a Civil War–era slave cemetery nearby, and an Indian mound said to date back more than 1,000 years.It is further believed that the former homeowner and his family members was attached to and loved this gracious home in their lifetime they have chosen to stay on in the afterlife.

The inn does offer ghost tours and other related paranormally-related events.
