My wife I were on a swing through Georgia (July unfortunately not the optimal time of year for such an adventure), and over time had hoped to visit historic Macon (Hay House, etc)...the 1842 Inn looked very tempting, had great reviews, so we decided to spend our one night in town at that site. Well, we are pleased to report... More

Unfortunately we only stayed at the 1842 Inn for one night. This place is grand and beautiful. It was relatively quiet when we stayed but the staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was huge (Mercer Suite) and very comfortable. Beware though, if you put the robes on you won't want to take them off again. They offer complimentary... More

We had the Jefferson Davis Room and the mattresses were in sorry state - I couldn't find a spot where the springs were not digging into my ribs and/or hips. Breakfast, though, was lovely, and the buildings and grounds are indeed breathtaking.

We stayed at the 1842 Inn for 2 nights in March 2012. We were greeted by EJ and Emma. They make you feel so welcome. Both are exactly what Southern hospitality should be. After being showed our room we walked through the beautiful courtyard. On the covered front porch you can enjoy hors d' oeuvres made by Emma that are... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the 1842 Inn in April 2012. Everything about the Inn is lovely. The grounds, the building, the comfortable rooms, the furniture and the service. All the people who work at the Inn are friendly and extremely helpful. Our comfort was, honestly, their main concern. The breakfast was very good and served in the... More

We spent a single night at the 1842 Inn, and we would return. The old home is beautiful, the art work, furnishings and garden are very nice. Our room was a little small, but well appointed and comfortable. The bath was very nice. The attention from the staff was all you could hope for...very friendly, very helpful and obviously proud...

We decided to stay at the 1842 Inn On a trip from Florida to New York. Upon arriving at this stately manor we were warmly greeted by the hostesses and shown to our room. The room was in the main house on the second floor. It was spacious and beautifully decorated. There is a very large covered front porch with... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in October 2011. We chose to stay here due to the TA ratings. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised and very happy with the Inn, it's location and the room. The puplic rooms are also beatufully furnished. We received a genuinely gracious and warm welcome from Joanna - She really is... More

We stayed here for one night and wish it could have been longer just for the wonderful setting and the so friendly staff. It was just like being on the film set of Gone With the Wind. We had a very warm welcome and our room was lovely - very individual. Pre- dinner canapes were a nice surprise and eating... More

The rooms were beautiful, luxuriously furnished. The house was stunning with many grandly appointed reception areas. Gloria and Joanna were very charming and helpful. Lovely tea with chocolates, quiches etc. offered to the guests. Good breakfast. Very good toiletries, bathroom robes, soft towels...and all the other amenities. Everything has been done very thoughtfully. Pity we could not stay longer.
