“Southern Hospitality at its Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Beautiful bed and breakfast in a Southern Mansion that will make you want to stay. Sitting in the middle of the historic area, it is surrounded by the beauty of many other historic homes from different periods. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with exquisite furnishings and the service is 5 star. Perfect to accomodate the entire wedding party and they will make their visit a time to remember. Friends from Canada chose the Inn for all of there family and friends who traveled here to attend our daughter's wedding. What a grand time we all had making memories not soon to be forgotten.. I always recommend 1842 to anyone staying in Macon.

Room Tip: All are equal, just depends on your needs.

Service was awesome and the staff made sure we felt at home. We got a tour of the entire premises and was not disappointed at all. It's convenient to downtown in the historic area. It's also convenient to interstate. It everything anyone would want in the historic area.

Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in historic area.

Sadly, we had only one comfortable night at this lovely home. It was so warm, and inviting. I love the dreamy feeling of going back in time when in a home such as this. Breakfast was excellent. We passed on the evening appetizers so as not to spoil our dinner out. We would have loved to lounge on the veranda or in the courtyard but the weather did not permit. Service was attentive but unobtrusive, very warm and in earnest. If ever we have the chance to travel to Macon again, we will certainly stay here.

The 1842 Inn was certainly the best place for relaxing out on the soaring columned porch drinking coffee or tea during the day. In the evening there were always wonderful treats to nibble. In front of the gas fireplace was a wonderful spot for breakfast. We wanted to have breakfast in the courtyard, but it was too cool in the morning. We stayed in the Bartram room, which needs a re-work on the AC/Heating unit. The compressor was noisy as it cycled on and off during the night, but we also are not accustom to mechanical noises from AC/Heating units in our bedroom at home. The service was excellent with the staff being very polite and checking to be sure we did not need anything.

I have been staying in clone chain hotel room after clone chain hotel room. What a respite this was. Beautiful large room, comfortable chairs, 4 poster bed. Perfectly appointed bath. Yes, this is what travel should be. Breakfast in sitting room with soft classical music piped in drowning out any outside traffic noise.

Room Tip: I like staying in the main house of the Inn, although there is an adjacent building with additional...

Beautiful house, well appointed rooms and friendly helpful staff and nothing was too much trouble. It was very relaxng to sit in a rocking chair on the lovely verandah. Highly recommended. We arrived on a Sunday and had not been warned that virtually everything in Macon closes. Fortunately we found just one eatery - not sure what we would have done otherwise! The following day was a little livelier although we were the only visitors to the excellent visitor centre.

The House and grounds are beautiful. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Loved the beautifully furnished common area rooms downstairs. When we were there they were very tastefully decorated for Fall and Halloween. Cocktail Hour appetizers were delicious and plentiful. They have a cash bar, but we had our own wine. They provided wine glasses and we sat out on the massive front porch, which has several seating areas. Our room was large and well appointed. The breakfast was delivered to our room and was great. This Inn was a perfect halfway point in our trip from Florida to Highlands. We will do it again next year, but will plan to stay another night or two to enjoy the Inn and surrounding area.
