On our way back to Ontario after spending 3 months in Florida, we decided to take 'back roads' instead of I-75. Our first destination was the Confederate stockade at Andersonville, not far from Americus, Georgia. I like to pre book reservations and after finding out the usual hotels/motels were full, did research and discovered the Americus Garden Inn B & B on line. They had a room so we stayed there. I'm glad the normal accommodations were booked because our stay at this B & B was wonderful. It was built before the Civil War, and hosts Susan & Kim gave us some background history on the property. Our 'Scarlett' room was great - you could have had 10 people in it, the decor vintage, but modern, extremely clean and a delight. The gardens, which our hosts did themselves were gorgeous. Susan suggested a wonderful restaurant for dinner that night and her breakfast the next morning was delicious - not necessary to have lunch that day! The outside porch and sitting area was a perfect place to sit back with a glass of wine and relax after a full day of playing tourist,
There are so many things to see in the area so we will have to return next year and stay for a longer time. We certainly will make this B & B our home base.
