This is a beautiful historic home that has loads of character. We were greeted by Joanne who was the epitome of Southern hospitality. Even though we arrived at noon and we knew checkout wasn't until 4pm, she was so genuinely happy to welcome us and offered us waters. Our room wasn't ready yet, which we expected, and she offered to... More

We stayed here for two nights on our road trip from Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway and through to Florida. We were made to feel so welcome. It's a beautiful property and the staff are really interested in you. Our room "Douglass Room" was wonderful and the breakfasts were first rate. I have to say a big thank you to... More

We stayed at the Inn one night. The staff was very pleasant and could provide pet friendly accommodations in the cottage. It was quiet and very comfortable. We enjoyed tasty appetizers on the front porch with bar service provided. For dinner, we were given directions to a pet friendly restaurant that allowed pets in their outdoor dining area. The fellow... More

On our way through to Atlanta we stopped here by chance and found a wonderful place to stay, staff could not be more helpful and happy to see you, from making sure the vehicle was parked up safe, to a large G&T to soften the journey, to choosing a place for dinner and serving breakfast, needless to say the rooms...

What a surprise!!! Have never stayed someplace like this and LOVED IT!!! We actually had a cool afternoon and was able to sit on front porch. Ms. Joanne and Ms. Shirley were great hostesses. Let them recommend a restaurant. You won't regret it. We stayed in the main house and I really enjoyed the "old feel" of everything. We had... More

We were looking for a fun place to eat breakfast. Called and asked if there was any chance we could visit even though we were not actually staying at the Inn. They were willing to work us in with their regular guests. The entire experience was wonderful. We had our on parlor room. Food and service were perfect Lucretia and... More

I have been staying at the 1842 at least once a month for years for work. I absolutely love it. It is like home away from home, I am treated like family. I love coming in and they know who I am, they know what I want. The beds are comfortable and the grits are to die for. No matter... More

We've stayed here now 4 times over the last 2 years and have enjoyed this inn every time! We've stayed in the cottage and now in the main house, both give you a lot of privacy. The rooms are cozy and nicely appointed. The first level of the house has several rooms you can sit in and chat or enjoy... More

The 1842 Inn is elegant, historic, and modern where appropriate. From the moment you walk in you're greeted by a warm atmosphere that is styled exactly like a mansion from the Old South. The southern charm of this place is also reflected in the staff, all of whom are very friendly, helpful, and kind. We stayed in the Mercer bedroom,... More

My husband and I stayed here in November to attend my son's last football game at Mercer University. We had heard of the Inn and wanted to stay here at least one time before he graduated from Mercer. It was a wonderful weekend. We stayed in the carriage house in a great, oversized room. It was quiet and romantic. The... More
