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

This was a wonderful inn and a great place to stay. The historic residence has been beautifully and appropriately re-purposed into the 1842 Inn with all the modern conveniences. We were welcomed to the Inn with a smile and freshly-baked cookies. Breakfast was in the garden. Although in the middle of the city's historic district there was plenty of privacy.... More

We spent 2 nights at the 1842 Inn and were very pleased with the amenities in this antebellum mansion. We stayed in the Magnolia room which was quite roomy and had an amazingly comfortable king bed. The staff bent over backwards to assist us in anything we requested such as restaurant recommendations and directions. It is an interesting 15 minute... More

Recently stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were excellent very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful clean room with period furniture and outside seating area in garden. Enjoyed mint juleps on the front porch and the canapés were wonderful.

We enjoyed our overnight stay at the 1842 Inn. The level of attention and care was very much appreciated. There is a happy hour every evening at 5:30 with complimentary hot and cold appetizers and a cash bar. The drinks are not happy hour prices, but it is a nice opportunity to enjoy this lovely Inn, plus you can socialize... More

My wife and I stayed two nights in two different rooms. Both rooms were clean, comfortable and charming. The Mercer room on the second floor of the mansion was, I believe, the original master bedroom, but we actually liked the Mercer, in the old kitchen (ground floor facing the court yard) better. The exterior lighting was a bit obtrusive in... More

We received a wonderful welcome from Gloria who was extremely helpful. Our room was very comfortable and clean, facing on to the rear garden. Mostly though, this is a beautiful, elegant antebellum home, elegantly furnished with a front porch on which to enjoy the evening drinks and canapes offered to guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in Macon.
