This is a lovely building and cottage with a beautiful garden in between. It is well preserved and the the staff were nice. The interior was cozy, but the furnishings bordered on cheesy, like the bright blue crushed velvet sofa in the parlour and heaping of portraits and tapestries and nicknacks. I'm sure it is expensive to keep up this... More

This Inn is grand, beautiful and well kept. From the front porch and rocking chairs to the afternoon tea in the lounge room in front of an open fire. We were greeted and welcomed. Last minute we wanted to change our room for the House to the Cottage up the back as we had so much luggage. This was no... More

Beautiful spacious rooms and staff who are more than friendly - we couldn't have asked for more! This is true southern charm and you can really imagine southern belles in the beautiful lounge rooms which were only bettered by the huge and comfortable bedrooms. A definite must for anybody stopping in Macon

We spent one night in the 1842 on a drive to Florida. Nice stopping point for the final sprint of driving. This Inn is very nice. Very large room. High and comfortable bed. Good wifi. Very nice people---EJ thanks for the dinner reservation at Dovetail. Perhaps best of all, the southern breakfast. Highly recommended by reasonably fussy travelers!

We recently stayed a night at the 1842 Inn. This is a wonderful house in the historic district of Macon on College St. Beautiful rooms, wonderful front porch and great breakfast dining area. The 1842 Inn is located within an easy walk to Rose Hill and downtown. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for just one night on a motorcycle trip from FL to NC. We got there just at the start of a nice cocktail hour (delicious mint juleps the house special). Delicious, fresh hors d'oeuvres served in the elegant downstairs living room, that we enjoyed while rocking on the beautiful front veranda. Our room was spacious and very... More

I have to say this was a bit like the curate’s egg, good in parts. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a lovely large room, with the customary enormous bed, very nice bathroom and each room has its theme ours was the Douglass room in the annexe at the back. The room itself was great, large comfortable and... More

We had a great stay at this upscale B&B. It's an antebellum mansion located near Mercer College and an easy walk to downtown restaurants. An uphill walk back from dinner was a bit strenuous (uphill all the way) but good for us after dinner. The bacon, egg and cheese casserole at the included breakfast was perfectly delicious.

Spent a night here while traveling through Georgia. We were in the Jefferson Davis room. The entire facility has been restored to incredible beauty and comfort. Breakfast in the courtyard was delightful. The neighborhood also contains some amazing historical homes.
