My husband and I were passing through with friends on our way to a conference in Savannah. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were immaculate. The wine/appetizers and desserts were divine. We were within walking distance to dinner. Our breakfast was amazing as well. We will definitely stay here again. Rooms were clean and spacious and it was very quiet. Thank you, Don, for sharing your lovely home.
Beautiful property, very convenient to GCSU. Only issue was a non working ceiling fan and make up mirror. I do think the +$300 a night is a little steep for Milledgeville.
A beautiful antebellum mansion, the 1842 Inn provided great southern hospitality for our one night stay. A very well appointed room coupled with a charming welcome from the innkeeper, Gloria, who also suggested an excellent download on our phones to accompany a walk around some of the other antebellum properties in the town. Wine and canapes provided in the evening and a lovely breakfast.
Visited the college campus with our son and while he stayed overnight at his friends dorm, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the B&B which was walking distance to the campus and the cute little Main Street with great dining options. Service was excellent and our every request and need was looked after. The B&B is historic and beautiful. Request the room with the claw foot tub in the bedroom. Can't wait for our next visit!
My husband and I live in Atlanta and each time we have attended an event in Milledgeville we have been lucky enough to book a room in this charming inn. Olivia, the present Innkeeper, is precious and adds greatly to the enjoyment of the visit with her friendliness, knowledge of the surrounding area and her excellent skills at breakfast time! If you want a relaxing, lovely get-away that is not far from Atlanta, this is the place to visit and stay. We will be back. Pamela C.
It was a wonderful place to visit. Right in the historic district of Macon. Staff were attentive and friendly. Rooms were spacious and decorated beautifully. Breakfast was wonderful. Would recommend to a friend and stay again.
We spent 3 nights at the Inn and greatly enjoyed the peace and quiet, the excellent breakfasts, the pleasant cocktail hours and the courteous and helpful service. We were given three recommendations for dinner restaurants, and all of them were very good. If you have never been to Macon before - or even if you have - this is the place to stay.
Just stayed there this past weekend and cannot put into words how wonderful everything was. Don was such a great host and an incredible cook. The breakfast on both days was great. The rooms were extremely comfortable. Than you for making my wife and I feel very comfortable and at home..
SO enjoyed my 2nd stay at Antebellum - only regret that it wasn't longer. It is a special B&B! Olivia was the perfect hostess. Loved our room - just a delight! This time we were able to meet some of the other travelers, and enjoyed wine & cheese with them. I can't say enough great things about the Antebellum Inn! Thank you for another delightful stay!
My wife and I spent a wonderful night at the 1842 Inn in Macon, GA. The Mercer room was exceptional. No complaints from us. The social hour with delicious appetizers along with a cash bar and free non-alcoholic drinks (my wife) was relaxing and very enjoyable. My gin and tonic was made to perfection!! I would highly recommend this B & B to all!! Enjoy your stay. Steve
The Staff made our visit truly wonderful. This is a 5 star experience. Breakfast is an epicurean delight surrounded by history. The Mercer room is beautifully decorated in period and was very comfortable. We can not wait to return. If you are looking for a relaxing stay with southern hospitality, this is it!!!

My husband and I stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. We stayed in the Judges suite on the first floor where we had our own private access to the beautiful wrap-around porch. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with the Innkeepers, Olivia and Brendan. We briefly mentioned our anniversary and they brought us out chocolate covered strawberries and bottle of chilled champagne for us to enjoy on the porch. We will certainly be back.
We are just finishing up our stay at the Burke Mansion. I always want to write more reviews but life gets in the way, but I couldn’t let the opportunity slide to applaud Don and his staff for making our stay very nice. We have traveled to a lot of places, stayed in high-end spots and always eat well, so I can tell you Don at the Burke, knows good stuff. Great beds, awesome breakfast, and nice wines for afternoon cocktails all inside a stunning old 1830’s Victorian home. We were able to walk to dinner at the Tic Toc Room which was tasty and from Burke you can walk all over historic Macon. If you are going to stay in Macon do yourself a favor and check the Burke out. Getting to know Don was a real pleasure! Would give the Burke 6 stars if I could. Thanks.
We stayed in the Sidney Lanier room which was in the guest cottage. The room was nicer than the photographs and it was convenietly located directly behind the main house. This is really within a 10 minute walk of the Hay House, the cannonball house, and several other attractions. We enjoyed our stay.!!!
Sherry was a wonderful host. I was there during a very trying time (a family funeral) and Sherry was welcoming and comforting. The house is beautiful and very well located close to downtown where all the good food and museums are located. Sherry went out of her way to cook us a paleo breakfast that was so delicious I asked for the recipe and she sent it over.
My husband and I booked a stay at this beautiful inn in our city. We wanted to stay somewhere local for a little 'get away' together. We have a 3 sons and a busy, busy life so a local retreat together was perfect. We stayed in the Carriage House at the back of the property and felt like we were home. It was so comfy and peaceful, we could have stayed forever. The innkeeper has been very intentional about keeping that space 'disconnected' from the outside world (no internet or cable connection), which really encouraged more conversation and creativity in the way we spent our time together away from the kids. She also treated us to a secluded homemade breakfast with whole, real food DELICIOUS ingredients in the carriage house our first morning there. For our second morning, she invited us to the main house to have another amazing breakfast with her and any other guests. The main house is even more lovely than the pictures suggest - if you can believe it! It is spacious, with opportunities for secluded, private time, as well as offering opportunities for connection and conversation with other guests all creating the most beautiful environment and experience. We highly, highly recommend that you make a special trip to the area even JUST to stay at this inn!
