“MOST WONDERFUL B & B EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2006

I just returned from a semi-annual weekend "girl's" trip to Americus, GA with 3 of my lifetime friends. We call ourselves the "Nutty Buddies." The primary purpose of our trip was to visit President Jimmy Carter's church and attend the Sunday School class that he taught. I searched the internet for lodging in the area and decided on the Americus Garden Inn. Seeing the Carters was great and President Carter is a wonderful Sunday school teacher. But the best part of the trip was actually our stay at the Americus Garden Inn Bed & Breakfast. The owners, Kim and Susan Egelseer, are truly blessed with a special gift of making one feel welcome and special. From being greeted in the driveway, to all the special touches throughout the house, the scrumptious breakfasts.......I could go on and on.
Our only regret was that we didn't get to spend more time just enjoying the ambience of the Inn itself and less time out seeing the sights.
I recommend the Amercus Garden Inn over any other bed and breakfast in which I have stayed. It is great for a girl's getaway, like we had, or a romantic weekend for you and that special person in your life.

we were looking for a place to have a quiet weekend away to celebrate our 15 year anniversary and the Americus Garden Inn was exactly what we were looking for. The rooms are great, the house is wonderful and best of all the food was excellent. It was a bed and breakfast where you could be alone if you wanted or get to know the other guests. Kim and Susan couldn't make you feel anymore welcome. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone.

We spent our 2nd Anniversary at the Americus Garden Inn and we loved it! Our room was beautiful and we enjoyed the private balcony. We added the "Sensations" package and the "Bistro Basket" and we loved both. We appreciated the organized and helpful details given about the local eating establishments and sites. We didn't have to spend any of our time researching the area, just enjoying it.

The Garden Inn met and exceeded all of the standards that one would expect from an upscale B&B; a beautiful historic home, fabulous food, and a relaxing atmosphere. Kim and Susan really devoted a great deal of energy to details and personalized service but it was their genuine enthusiasm for what they were doing that made this such a unique and warm experience.

Our stay at the Americus Garden Inn was great. The hosts were delightful and very helpful in guiding our tourist activities in the area. The food was exceptional and served with style. We will most definitely return.

There really ought to be a category above "excellent"...because this Inn and it's Innkeepers surely deserve it! From the moment you approach the house you sense the warmth that awaits you inside. We could not have had a better experience. The rooms are immaculate and the food was absolutely delicious!!!! We are now B&B converts and will be comparing all future experiences to this one! Our hats go off to Susan and Kim!!

My husband and I were looking for a change of pace from the ordinary for our first anniversary. As we contemplated ideas for trips, we decided to try a bed and breakfast...a new experience for both of us. After our visit to Americus Garden Inn, I don't know if there are other B&Bs that could live up to our first experience. Kim and Susan were fabulous hosts. We were made to feel as if we were home from the moment we arrived. We were given a brief historical tour of the home, informed of restaurants in the area, and left to ourselves unless we needed Kim or Susan for anything. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We had the good fortune of being the last couple to check out on Sunday morning, so we had the treat of being able to see all of the rooms. They were all spacious and comfortable and we quickly concluded that we would have been very pleased with any room. The grounds were also enjoyable. We sat on the swing in the gazebo of the backyard for a long conversation under the Saturday night sky.
As for the hosts, they were very kind, helpful, and great to carry on Sunday morning conversation with over coffee! They took wonderful care of us, even making dinner reservations at a local lodge on our behalf. The three-course breakfast at the Inn was delicious with large portions each morning. A large variety of juices as well as wonderful gourmet coffee was the perfect complement to the meal. What a great way to begin the day!
As I'm sure is the case with many places, the pace is what you make of it - we chose to mostly sit around watching movies and enjoy the jacuzzi. We did take the opportunity to visit a couple of local historical buildings, but could have easily taken in many more sites in the area. Kim and Susan were very knowledgable of the local attractions and had a wealth of information regarding each of them.
Our weekend was nothing short of fabulous, and we feel that Kim and Susan's charming personalities and lovely B&B was the centerpiece of the first of many happy anniversaries together. We know that a trip back to Americus Garden Inn will certainly be in our future.

Among our many visits to B & B's we rate this one of the best. A beautiful house with spacious, clean rooms. Comfortable, quiet location near restaurants and other historical sites in the community. Susan and Kim, the hosts, asked us when making reservations about any special food requests we might have. Food was very good. They are fun to talk to and were willing to share about sites in the area.

Americus is located in a wonderful historic area. During our time there we visited Andersonville Prison, Habitat for Humanity Headquarters and Plains GE the home of former President Jimmy Carter and Roselyn. We will always remember this trip (see photo)
