We stayed in the most wonderful bed and breakfast in Americas, Ga. This Inn is southern hospitality and comfort at its best. Susan, our hostess, went above and beyond. We were greeted at our car and given a tour through this beautiful historic home. We felt totally at home and felt free to tour and enjoy the lovely outdoor gardens. The next morning we awoke to a four course breakfast that was fantastic! Our hostess had enquired before our arrival of an special dietary needs and adjusted the breakfast menu to suit our needs. We were treated with fresh from the oven peanut butter (gluten-free) muffins made from rice flour and gluten-free pancakes with fresh fruit. We enjoyed the leftovers later the next day on the road. Our family has stayed in many bed and breakfast Inns and this one is certainly at the top of the list. We were traveling with our German guest showing them our American South and this proved to be a great example of the best of the old southern culture. We were so glad we chose this Inn. Our hostess was great and really went above and beyond our expectations in helping us pick local places to visit. She even placed a special make-up mirror in our room. We also really loved the quality of linens (very high thread count) they really felt great! We just had a short visit but we can’t wait to return with our friends. I guess you can tell - we really loved the place!

My wife Toni and I recently had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Americus Garden Inn. Please believe me when I say the experience just continued to get better each day. Our host, Susan, is a marvelous chef who prepared a wonderful breakfast each morning which she served one course at a time. She also has her own blend of coffee which we found delicious. By the time we left it truly felt as if we were leaving a sister's home. We did not get to meet her husband who was out of town, but are looking forward to it next time. The home which was built in 1847 is beautiful and lovingly maintained. The gardens are gorgeous with lots of wonderful flowers and trees. A gazebo with a swing which I dearly loved is also in the garden and there are rocking chairs on the front porch that took me back to Grandma's. A most relaxing place to get away if you want to be spoiled, pampered and showered with hospitality. Is this a five star facility? Yes, only because they don't allow six or more. John Collier

After a month on the road the Americus garden Inn was our last stop before heading home. Along the way we stayed at several bed and breakfasts but none could compare to the Americus Garden cInn in any of the above categories. This was our second visit to the Inn and we were treated as old friends. Our rooms were nicely appointed and our bed was sprinkled with rose petals in honor of our fortieth anniversary. After a comfortable nights sleep, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. During our month long trip we stayed at several bed and breakfasts and even walked out of one due to the strong cat urine odor. Anyone can claim that they are a bed and breakfast but only a few are the real thing like the Americus Garden Inn. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My husband and I had the pleasure to stay in the spacious Library room. Our wonderful hostess, Susan, prepared the room beautifully even laying out reading materials that she anticipated we might be interested in (and we were!) The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in and there were great reading lamps for the two of us (so we didn't have to battle over where to read in the room.) The common areas in the house are comfortable AND luxurious. A whole other review could be written about the breakfasts-- delicious, made with loving care with local fruits and vegetables, and enough to fill you through dinner!! Check out Susan's photos of both the garden, her breakfasts and her food. It will give you some insight into the care that is put into all the details of the experience. Susan was a wonderful hostess-- giving us both local insights, friendly conversation and privacy. A five star experience!!!!!

My father loved his "birthday gift" of the stay in this historical and lovely B & B, as did I. Susan was so welcoming, meeting us outside in the gardens with so much in bloom during June. The evening stroll through the gardens, the wonderful breakfast, with Susan taking the time to put a birthday candle on the pancakes for my Dad! And sing Happy Birthday...now where else would you find that personal touch? The rooms were spacious, CLEAN, and each one has windows to the outside. I was nice to sit on the gazebo during our stroll thru the shady garden. Hummingbirds, cardinals, just a great time. The personal touches and attention Susan showed us during our stay as her guests was beyond comparison. Great effort was evident in the entire experience that both Susan and Kim make sure their guests experience during their stay, and ours was no exception. This is a top B & B compared to ANY. I look forward to taking my Dad here again next year!

100% on all levels the entire time we were guests. We wanted to get away for rest and relaxation for our 39th and it was the answer to our wishes. Kim and Susan were top notch and genuinely interested in providing the best, giving much thought to our specific requests. Mark and I love to stay at B&B's, because of the personal touches and meeting other people. There are a few we will not return to, but Americus Garden Inn,as long as Kim and Susan are the hosts, is a B&B we will visit hopefully many times and recommend highly to our traveling friends. Renovating homes ourselves, we appreciate the passion and the diligence of Kim and Susan and the character of their beautiful home and gardens. It is rare that you meet hosts that offer 100% of their time, have a grade of 100 with their food services, and cleanliness and have a 5 star rating for their accommodations.

If there were a category higher than outstanding then I would use it for this accommodation. We loved it so much on our first visit that we returned six weeks later for another two-night stay. The food is yummy and the personal service is above-and-beyond. They called me to advise that the original return date I had chosen would not accommodate my stated plans. I adjusted my schedule and was able to finish all I had intended in the area. Americus is central to so many sights--Andersonville, Habitat for Humanity, Callaway Gardens, Warm Springs, and more. Thank you Kim and Susan for all you did. You are superb hosts!

Double Chocolate Almond Scones
If there is one particular baked item that everyone raves about, it would be Susan's Double Chocolate Almond Scones. Everyone asks for the recipe after just one bite. If you like chocolate and almonds, ask her to make them for you!
