We have visited many B & B’s in our travels over the years and after visiting Americus Garden Inn Bed & Breakfast we must give it a 5 star rating. When planning a trip to Knoxville, TN from Florida we wanted to stay some place about half way between. After researching the internet I called Americus Garden Inn B&B to check on accommodations. What a wonderful conversation we had with Susan Egelseer and when we arrived at the B&B we were greeted by one of the most gracious hostess’s we have ever experienced. Susan received us like family and treated us like honored guests. The beautiful old home has spacious clean rooms and is located on a large landscaped lot in a quiet neighborhood. Good restaurants and shopping are just a short drive away.
The breakfasts that Susan served us were all home made and have just the right portions to satisfy your appetite and start off your day not to mention the presentation of the meal. Homemade muffins (if you like blueberries, she is the champ), fruit, eggs, specialty pancakes and something I can never get at any restaurant, V8 juice.
On our return trip from Knoxville we arrived early in the afternoon and visited the Andersonville Civil War Village and Historical Site and National POW Museum and Cemetery in nearby Andersonville GA before heading to the B&B. Our evening stay and morning breakfast was just a wonderful.
If you get an opportunity to stay with Kim & Susan at the Americus B&B you had better take advantage of it or you will be missing a wonderful experience.
We can’t wait for our next trip to Knoxville
