We enjoyed our stay at this wonderfully decorated property, and because only two rooms were booked, we got an upgrade to a larger room. Evening hors d'oeuvres were delicious and plentiful. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch. Friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast was very tasty and filling, although I would have appreciated having a potato option instead of grits. Overall, this is a good value for the price.

They were very busy the weekend we stayed because it was homecoming at Mercer University. Still, they made time to make us feel welcome and meet all our needs. Very comfy Jefferson Davis room. Breakfast was delightful.

Always receive great hospitality during our one stop between summer and winter homes. We arrive in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine, maybe a cookie and the beautiful atmosphere. Breakfast the next morning is always delicious and right on time. We would like a little stronger cup of coffee in the morning as we continue our travels by car.

The 1842 in was by far the grandest experience ever. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised at the accommodations, service, and food. It was Halloween and the guests sat on the front veranda with the gigantic columns surrounding the front and sides of this large, historical structure. The children were welcome to trick or treat and everyone had an exceptional experience. All of us were served drinks and delicious, savory hors d'oeuvres. It was by far the nicest inn we have had the pleasure of visiting.
