Todd and Joy are wonderful hosts. They were willing to serve their delicious 3-course breakfast at different schedules to meet the needs of their guests. The Inn is 110 years old and in excellent condition. This was one of the best B&B experiences we have had. We would definitely stay there again.


Anniversary Stay

My husband and I were totally impressed with the Simmons-Bond Inn B & B! The home is beautiful...masterfully crafted, tastefully decorated, and within walking distance to the downtown stores and restaurants. The owners are so accommodating. We enjoyed them sharing the history of the home (just makes it more personable) and appreciated suggestions about what we could do in the area. The food was excellent and plentiful. If we have the opportunity to return to the area, we will definitely stay again.


A delightful surprise

We found this delightful inn almost by accident. With no reservations we were in the area before we realized we had to spend the night locally and had nowhere to stay. By pure happenstance we found the listing for this inn and decided to give it a try. What a happy surprise! We were made to feel welcome, the rooms were clean and uniquely decorated with period antiques and pictures, the beds were comfortable and our hosts warm and welcoming. We are very happy we found this place and definitely will be back,


Back in Time

The Simmons-Bond was just what a B&B should be. A beautiful home renovated to keep as much traditional flavor as possible (although it is centrally air conditioned which i was so thankful for), with antiques galore. My Wife loved it, everywhere she looked was another piece that reminded her of her Grandmothers. The hosts, Joy and Todd, were as accommodating as could be hoped for, providing anything that could be desired in a B&B and then some. The breakfast was superb, from the baked pear with cream to the souffle. Thank you for a truly enjoyable stay.


Charming place to stay

I loved my stay. Beautiful house.


Beautiful B&B!

What a lovely B&B! It was clean and comfortable, and our hosts were wonderful! We stayed in the Elizabeth room and it was so nice. We learned so much about this beautiful home from the owner during our breakfast. It was fascinating! We enjoyed walking around town, visiting the Paul Anderson park and also Toccoa Falls. We will definitely stay again!


Such an enjoyable experience.

The wedding party stayed in rooms on the top floor, and it was a very comfortable and relaxed stay.


Great stay!

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Simmons-Bond Inn. We were treated so well and all of the accommodations were wonderful. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. The owners made the extra effort to accommodate my wife's gluten free diet. Thank you very much!


The Best Time Ever!

4.8 on March 19, 2014

The night prior to our visit we contacted Joy concerned about the snow storms coming. We decided at 10:00 p.m. after speaking with Joy to check out of our hotel, so we hopped in our car and drove the four hours to Toccoa to beat the snow storm. Surprisingly Todd, awaited our 1:00 a.m. arrival and greeted us with a warm welcome and big smile. He then made sure we had everything we needed to settle in “for a long winter’s night”. It had been forty years since my husband and I had seen snow, so what a surprise when I peeked through the shutters at 5:00 a.m. and saw nothing but white and thought I was in heaven. That morning Todd presented us with the best breakfast consisting of the most delicious waffles and the most amazing baked apple fruit delight, “both homemade”. Todd shared stories of the interesting history of the Toccoa area and the Simmon’s Bond Bed and Breakfast. We ventured out into the knee-high snowfall to make snow angels, snowballs and snowmen. I was in my glory and couldn’t be happier! Since the town was closed due to snow storm and we could not get out on our own to dine. Todd and Joy went above and beyond to make sure that we had a delicious meal that evening, with great conversation that felt like dinner with old friends. We had the most relaxing two days filled with heart filled memories. I feel it was a blessing that we were drawn to stay at the Simmon’s Bond B&B and Joy & Todd are an amazing warm & welcoming couple. Thank you for The Best Time Ever!

"I'll be back...again and again."

I needed to stay overnight in Toccoa once a week for several months, and did not care to live in a motel; I wanted to feel as if I were coming home at the end of the day. Indeed, the innkeepers made me feel as welcomed as homecoming. I tried different rooms, all delightful, but found my favorite (the one with a mysterious bookcase), and that was "mine.". During the afternoon I napped, had a cup of tea, returned to work, and at the end of the day, I climbed the carved oak staircase to "my" room, lit a fire in the bedroom's small fireplace, relaxed in comfort in the beautifully appointed room. Next morning, according to my schedule our meal served by the innkeepers...Breakfast! of fresh blueberry pancakes, omelets, crisp bacon, fresh fruit medley, and juice, delicious coffee. The next week's breakfast: pecan waffles, soufflé, warm fruit compote, sausage, juices, good coffee. Gentle company at breakfast...we all seemed to know where to find a gem like this B&B. I plan to give gift certificates for Christmas
