Wonderful spot. In town mansion restored to its original splendor. Beautiful and the staff is amazing.

Oasis of elegance

We loved everything about the 1842 Inn. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The inn's public rooms were lovely and comfortable. The gracious late-afternoon happy hour with wine and house-prepared hors d'oeuvres made us feel welcome and coddled. We appreciated the staff's attentiveness, the Southern breakfast and the inn's setting on a quiet street of other classic homes.

"Epitome of Southern Hospitality"

5 on April 04, 2014

Although we only stayed one night, it was marvelous! We arrived at 4:00pm and had just one hour before we had to leave to meet friends for dinner. When I expressed our sorrow concerning missing the hors'd'oeuvres normally served at 5:30, JoAnne (front desk) said she would serve them at 5:00 so we would not miss the experience. Upon our return that night I climbed into bed and OHHH! I wanted to get back out of bed, lift the sheets to see what make the mattress was! It was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on! Although the weather in the morning was a bit too chilly to have breakfast in the courtyard, it also was wonderful! We look forward to returning for an extended stay.

Lovely Inn but in need of some updating

3.0 on April 03, 2014

Lovely home and wonderful, caring staff members. Our room needed updating. The decor was 70's or 80's feeling and the room was in need of a fresh coat of paint.
