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!

While traveling to Andersonville to visit the historic Civil War monuments we stayed one night with Kim and Susan and was treated like royalty.

The inn is beautiful, well cared for, romantic and relaxing. The hosts are generous with their time and very helpful. We stayed in the Scarlett Suite and it was spectacular. Breakfast was delicious and Susan made sure to find out our food favorites and not so favorites in advance, ensuring we had a perfect meal.

Had we been told that this venue was the only house with a picket fence on the street, we would have found it much sooner. Once we arrived, we greatly enjoyed the gardens and the home itself. Kim and Susan go way out of their way to make your experience at the Americus Garden Inn a memorable one. Kim's informational skills and Susan's culinary skills are outstanding. A quintessential B&B.

This B&B is beautiful with clean, spacious rooms. The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. The beds were so comfortable and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. I would recommend this B&B highly to others.

I've stayed at Americus Garden Inns several times when traveling for business. I'd never consider staying anywhere else in the area. The rooms, house and gardens are delightful and Susan and Kim make you to feel right at home. As a woman traveling alone I always feel safe and well cared for. I have special dietary needs and wishes which Susan more than accomodates by providing a delicious breakfast with a presentation that makes it (almost) too attractive to eat! Stay here--I'm sure you will love this place and the people as much as I do.

I made reservations for four of us by choosing online reservations, hoping the entire party would be pleased. Were we ever pleasantly surprised! Arriving a little late after ten hours on the road, we were immediately welcomed and catered to. Kim and Susan had thought of everything. I was amazed at their connection to each guest from knowing each name to helping with directions to historical sites and restaurants.

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.

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!
