We love B&Bs, and The Colonels just outside of Athens GA is absolutely top-notch. Colonel Mark is a fantastic host and chef. In addition to the two of us, we were there with our son and his 2 teenage daughters. Our granddaughters totally fell in love with both Colonel Mark, his breakfast feast, and the 'southern mansion and grounds.' The front rooms of the house were indeed built in 1860. Our elder granddaughter commented as we departed, "You take us to the most wonderful places and this one was the best." And, her younger sister agreed wholeheartedly.
