The three course breakfasts are a flavorful and joyful way to start the day. Todd is an exceptional host, as well as chef! My wife and I, my niece/nephew, and my sister in law, stayed several nights upstairs for a nearby family gathering. The Bethany, and Elizabeth are nice and roomy for a couple, and we all gathered after evening excursions for a visit in the Elizabeth, because of the room and seating. The house is comfortable, with an ambiance of period elegance that is a gift from generations past. Todd has spent many years restoring and returning the home to a B&B business, and there is irreplacable wood craftsmanship at every turn. We immensly enjoyed our stay, and have no suggestions for improvement!

We found the place by accident. But it was a wonderful surprise! The room was extremely clean. The food was beyond compare. The house was quiet and all of the rooms were full.

This B&B is an unexpected gem. Delightful home, well preserved and kept up. Bath was a trifle small, but fine for my needs. What set this one apart for me was the hosts, who went far out of their way to make sure my stay was comfortable and well tended. And the breakfasts were truly outstanding! If you find yourself in northeast Georgia, give this one a try.

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.

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.

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,
