Lovely Inn

This is a trip back in time in style! Kim and Susan go above and beyond expectations. Preheated coffee mugs in the morning...need I say more? The Veranda Suite was well-appointed and had a wonderfully comfortable bed.


Beatiful historic home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Susan met us and gave us a garden tour before we entered the house. Our room was spacious, and the breakfast was delicious. Susan gave us information on the history of the area the enriched our stay. We only regret that we didn't have more time to spend there.

This was our first experience with a bed & breakfast but it was an excellent choice. We were treated like friends by Kim and Susan instead of customers. The house was beautiful and the bedroom perfect. The food was wonderful, especially the cinnamon roll pancakes. We can't wait for our next visit!


Best stay ever!!!!

This was a most enjoyable visit!! The innkeepers welcomed us warmly and explained all about the History of the Inn! The room was beautiful, and so comfortable with so many thoughtful details ( like heated mattress pads!!) Breakfast was delicious, and we had a personal tour of the beautiful gardens!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!! We loved it, and hope to return!

What a great find! I was on business near the Americus area, and found this gem on line. Outstanding!


Amazing Experience

This was the best trip ever. Mr. Kim and Ms. Susan were the best hosts. They went out of the way to make sure our trip was special. The room was top notch and it had special touches because it was an anniversary celebration. The breakfast provided was off the charts good (Ms. Susan sure can cook). They knew all of the local attractions and gave helpful and knowledgeable suggestions about this and future trips. I will be staying again for sure.


So much better than a hotel stay

A trip my husband and I will never forget!

We had such an enjoyable stay at the Americus Garden Inn Bed & Breakfast. The hosts were so gracious. We planned a trip to providence canyon to bring in the new year and celebrate our 1 year anniversary. From the moment we arrived everything was exceptional. We were greeted with inviting smiles and it felt as if we were visiting relatives. Susan took the time to have a congratulations banner hanging above the door of our room and a heart shaped candy dish filled with chocolates on our bed. Because we were spending new years eve there, she also took the time to call around and find out what restaurants would be open for dinner that night. We stayed in the Balcony room. It was so clean and comfortable and the sheets on the bed were amazingly soft. The balcony had a great view overlooking a beautiful garden, perfect for watching the sunrise. Each morning we looked forward to breakfast, it was always a delicious spread. Susan and Kim go above and beyond and we are looking forward to our next visit!


Americus Garden Inn, an elegant experience of southern grace and charm

Our experience at this historic inn could not have been better. The hosts were as kind and caring as possible, thinking ahead about what we may want or need, smiling, happy, affectionate. The beds and rooms were exceptionally comfortable and clean, and so tastefully decorated. The temperature was well regulated, There was no noise, actually nothing to hear but a bird song and us talking to each other about what a great time we were having. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite and the Veranda. Both were excellent. I do not think you can make a bad choice of a room. Congratulations to Susan and Kim for a terrific job.
