Outstanding experience

We stayed at the inn as it was halfway to our destination. We like B&B stays so thought we would try it. It was outstanding. Rooms were perfect and represented a bygone era that we enjoy. Breakfast casserole was perfect. EJ and Eileen (Spelling?) were extremely helpful and I really appreciate them. I highly recommend the 1842 Inn.

From the moment of our arrival the service we received was fantastic. Canapes in the parlour, a fresh pot of coffee and advice about restaurant choices were forthcoming minutes after checking in. Our room in the main house was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Indeed the whole place was immaculate. Breakfast in the courtyard was excellent. Gorgeous planting created an oasis which provided the perfect spot for the first meal of the day. We spent one evening sitting on the veranda just taking in the ambiance and watching the world go by. Idyllic. The novelty of a set of steps to get into bed was something else that made this stay stand out. The staff were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them and every service was offered with a smile and willingness. The house itself is wonderful but it is the pride taken by the staff in offering a first rate service that makes a stay in this Inn such a fantastic experience. Room Tip: Try to get a room in the main house to enjoy the full experience of life in the 'big house'.

Simply wonderful from start to finish. Comfortable room, friendly and professional staff, delicious homemade canapés and a tasty breakfast prepared to order served where and when we chose. Sitting on the porch with a glass of wine at the end of the day was very relaxing. I highly recommend this Inn.

Heaven in Macon

Absolutely gorgeous. Could have listened to Joanne all night, a great host and we will go there again.

Southern Charm

This is the only place we stay in Macon when we come in town for various Allman Brothers related activities. The warm greetings from EJ, Antonio, and Joanne set the tone from the start. They are they whenever we ask for anything and they know so much about the city and surroundings. Our favorite is to have a late day drink and kick back in the dining room. We will be back in a this summer.

my husband and I spent one night at the Inn, it is a beautiful Inn, nicely appointed, the staff greets you like they have known you all along, helpful in guiding you around the town. They put out a nice spread of nibbles for cocktail hour and breakfast is one of the best!! I highly recommend the Inn to anyone visiting the Macon area., you won't be disappointed.
