The 1842 Inn is just a few minutes from I-75, but situated in a lovely neighborhood that is steeped in southern history. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable, the service friendly without being overly solicitous (as is the case with some B&Bs) and the setting beautiful. Although it's walking distance to downtown Macon and situated close to many attractions in... More

We stayed at the 1842 because we did not want to stay in Atlanta when we arrived from the UK, we were heading for Savannah, it was a stopover. If we had known how nice it was - complete with real Southern hospitality - we would have stayed for longer! The property is in the heart of the old town... More

We stayed here one night on our way back to Atlanta Airport. It was the last night of a wonderfully enjoyable 3 week trip touring Georgia & South Carolina. The majority of our trip was spent in beautiful historic inns similar to the 1842 Inn. Although it is a lovely old well presented house, for us it lacked any kind... More

Because we have a small dog, we stayed in the pet-friendly Victorian cottage behind the main house in the Benjamin Hawkins room. It was a lovely March 2015 weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful and graciously shared historical tidbits about the house. Our room was clean and the bed was huge. We enjoyed having our breakfast brought to our... More

After 2 glorious weeks travelling around Georgia & Florida this is the perfect ending. Southern warmth & hospitality, a beautiful room and a house full of treasures. I need to sit on a porch and feel like being in the movies. An easy walk to Downtown Macon and some fabulous homes & buildings. What better place to stay?

We loved staying for 1 night, and wished we had time for more nights! Loved the Inn and the breakfast in the garden. They recommended dinner downtown that was within walking distance. It was above a super busy restaurant and we love it! The downtown is under construction and it was nice to see how they are rebuilding it. Why... More

This was our first visit to Georgia and to Southern USA. We arrived at 1842 inn tired and jetlagged after a long journey from London. But our spirits were immediately lifted by excitement at staying somewhere which looked just like the Southern homes we had seen in movies. And the inside was no less imposing - our high ceilinged room... More

Enjoying a couple of days away staying at the 1842 Inn. The building and the service are immaculate. We're in the Mercer Room in the main house. This is not a house where you are expected to make your own tea or coffee in your room, just ask and whatever you want will be provided. This is a great place... More
