A trip my husband and I will never forget!

5 on January 18, 2016

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.


Perfect opportunity for you!

Lee and Susan have perfected all details to make your stay a pleasure. I enjoyed the heated mattress pad, flawless linens and spaciousness of the Veranda Suite. They have mastered the technique of fine hotels of always being available while not smothering you with instant intimacy seen in way too many B&B's. Will return!


Hidden Gem!

If you are traveling in the area and need a place to stay, this is the place. Easy drive from I75 and away from the crowds. Clean, quiet, delicious food and owners that seem like long time friends. Spend your money and time with real people instead of the chain hotels, you won't regret it. Thanks again for our wonderful stay, Amy and Gene


A Home Away from Home

5 on November 11, 2015

My stay at Americus Inn was exceptional. I had stayed there in 2011 and was welcomed back a few weeks ago with genuine warmth. Kim and Susan are outstanding inn keepers and made me feel totally at ease and welcomed. I love the feel of the home and the breakfasts are 'over the top' delicious and worthy of a photo due to the creative presentation. It is the best! Lynette, from Colorado

In Americus for business, instead of staying at a chain a coworker recommended this place and boy am I glad she did. Great place to stay and recharge after a long day at the office. Great breakfasts, free wi-fi, and wonderful rooms. Definitely will stay here if I get back to Americus.

Wonderful experience at this Inn. Very accommodating to busy schedule, even able to adjust breakfast time and menus for our travel plans. Wish I had more time to enjoy its atmosphere, books and gardens.


A thoroughly delightful weekend!
