From the moment of our arrival the service we received was fantastic. Canapes in the parlour, a fresh pot of coffee and advice about restaurant choices were forthcoming minutes after checking in. Our room in the main house was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Indeed the whole place was immaculate. Breakfast in the courtyard was excellent. Gorgeous planting created an... More

The mantra of the 1842 Inn is: 'To enliven the human spirit of our guests by providing extraordinary personal service, overt attention to detail, and high levels of respect'. Boy, did they live up to this! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt totally pampered. The bedroom decor was delightful and the 'canapés reception' at... More

I have waited to write this review because there is SO much I want to say about this incredible inn and was afraid I wouldn’t convey it adequately. Why Macon was a destination on this family road trip I can't say except that it seemed to call to me. My husband discovered this gem of an inn and insisted that,... More

We stayed here for night after being on the road for six hours. We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with champagne, mint juleps and lovely hors d'oeuvres on the veranda. Breakfast was exquisite, try the french toast! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our experience was delightful. You can't speak highly enough of the staff and... More

If you've ever longed to sit on the white-columned verandah of an antebellum home sipping a mint julep, This is The Place!! We really can't say enough about the service here. The staff - Joanne, Lacresia, EJ, Antonio, and others behind the scenes - make the 1842 what it is, a wonderful old Southern mansion full of charm and gentility.... More

Everything about the 1842 Inn was excellent. Every single member of staff was friendly and professional,the room was clean and comfortable, the complimentary evening canapes were delicious, the breakfast was served at our convenience outside as requested and was freshly prepared. Just sitting on the porch relaxing was a pleasure. This is what I had hoped for in a Southern... More

We were sitting on the large front porch unwinding after a day of travel. Unrequested and completely unexpected, Joanne brought out a tray with hot decaf and cookies! How delightful! She chatted with us and made us feel at home! Could not ask for a better feeling. We stayed in a lodging detached from and behind the main house. It... More

Upon arriving at the 1842 Inn in Macon we were immediately taken by the inn's presentation both inside and out. The staff and the furnishing were of such unique quality that we were completely taken back to the days of service and details of making everyone welcome that the south is so known for!

My daughter and I stayed at the Inn on a recent visit to Mercer University. The inn is absolutely gorgeous! The hostesses were amazing and made us feel right at home.
