My wife and I came to Americus Garden Inn in search of two new family members, Italian Greyhounds from a national breeder in a nearby city. Little did we know what lay in store for us at this magnificent B & B. The home and grounds are breath taking to say the least. The five star breakfast was to die for and we fell in love with Susan's Oatmeal pancakes and cheese dish. Kim and Susan on the other hand is a story all by itself. They fulfilled everything we have heard about five star service and took it five times higher. The rooms were outstanding and the history of the home was wonderful to learn about. When we told Susan, after the first full day of our two day schedule due to traveling with the puppies that we must leave earlier than planned the next day to drive back to Texas and we would not be staying for breakfast, I thought we broke her heart. She responded by sending us off with a hug the best banana chocolate chip muffins we have ever had. We felt like beloved family members. We will be back as soon as time will allow to continue this journey and we highly recommend everyone come and stay at Americus Garden Inn for the experience of a lifetime. Not only will you have a great time and make precious memories but you will have a lifelong friendship with Susan and Kim, we know we do. Roger and Terri Edwards from Houston, TX.

Our first stay at a bed and breakfast was beyond our wildest expectations! The house was a study in antebellum and the food was delicious! What more can I say: it was a wonderful experience and we hope to go back one day - Susan & Kim were the most gracious hosts, informative and helpful in every way. We are proud to include our names: Karen & Ned!!!!

This grand B&B is worth going out of your planned path to stay there. It is the best B&B we've ever experienced and we travel often. Thanks, Susan, and I think I do want to order a set of your marvelous sheets.

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!!!!!

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!
