We were delighted with the friendliness and accommodations at the Americus Garden Bed and Breakfast-- especially as it was our first B and B experience. Kim and Susan exceeded our expectations as hosts, the room and the exquisite breakfasts. We love the Balcony Room, and are sorry we didn't have more time to spend exploring the gardens. A definite must for anyone traveling through Georgia, especially on a weekend when President Carter teaches Sunday School in his hometown of Plains, Ga.

Since 2009, every trip to and from Knoxville to visit family we have stayed with Kim and Susan at this most wonderful Bed & Breakfast. Both Kim and Susan are wonderful hosts to the point that they are almost like family because they treat you like family. We never have to worry about having a clean comfortable room, a great gourmet breakfast or finding out about local attractions. The whole experience of staying at Americus Garden Inn we have not found duplicated at any other Bed and Breakfast that we have ever stayed in.

We stayed on our way to and from Disney World. Not too far out of the way (driving on I-75), it was definitely worth the extra effort. Susan and Kim made us feel welcome from the moment we drove onto their gorgeous property. The decor of the house is beautifully done, and so clean and welcoming. The beds were so comfortable (Comphy sheets); we had no trouble falling asleep quickly and got a great night's sleep. We awoke refreshed and eager to start the day. Breakfast was delicious and Susan happily accommodated us in our request for vegetarian meals. We left feeling as if we had visited the home of dear old friends. We look forward to staying there on our next trip South.

This was our second visit to the Americus Garden Inn B & B, and we drove 150 miles out of our way just to stay there again. I'd like to stay in all seven rooms! Susan and Kim are the best. Their web site offers tons of information for the surrounding area and, anything else you need to know, Kim and Susan can fill in for you. The food, the atmosphere, the house, and the gardens are wonderful. Plan to spend at least two nights there!

The Americus Garden Inn was the perfect base of operation for my tour of the region. Susan gave a thorough orientation to the house and the area as soon as I arrived (she was at the car before I turned off the ignition!). I explained my dining limitations and Susan adjusted her servings appropriately. Every morning was filled with a marvelous breakfast which was served with great conversation. My days were spent with visits to Koinonia Farm, downtown Plains, Habitat for Humanity, and the Andersonville village and Civil War POW camp. Downtown Americus is a pleasant 3/4 mile walk. It was my destination for dinner each night. Kim was always available to provide driving directions each day. The highlight was my attendance at Jimmy Carter's Sunday School class in Plains. I can't wait to get back to this marvelous Inn. I just might stay longer next time!

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!
