A beautiful and charming antebellum home on a beautiful street lined with antebellum homes. The staff is very warm and welcoming and can’t do enough for you. In the early evening elegant appetizers are served. Later in the evening there are cookies. We loved the inn because it was like stepping back in time except that you have a modern...

The 1842 Inn is one of the many antebellum homes in the 2 square mile "College Hill Corridor" area of Macon. It is one of the only B&B Inns in town and has an extensive wall of photographs of celebrities who have stayed there. The staff was gracious. The breakfast was good. The accoutrements were excellent.

The house itself is stunning both inside and out. The staff were friendly and professional. It was nice to have the option of breakfast in the room which we took advantage off. Lovely food. It was a rainy Sunday when we stayed so had limited opportunity to use the lovely veranda seating but it was available nonetheless. My friend had...

This was a delightful, comfortable, hey-spoil-me kind of place. And a majestic 1842 home brought back to its glory and a wonderful little garden space with tables and chairs leading to a home moved to the property with a few additional charming rooms. The service was beyond outstanding. The welcome, the attitude and engagement of every staff member we met...

This Inn is absolutely gorgeous! To our surprise we were upgraded upon arrival and treated like royalty until checkout the next day. It's perfect as a stopover going south, or a romantic destination, but there's not much to do in Macon as a vacation destination.

We recently stayed at 1842 Inn. This was our second visit. We had a lovely upstairs room. Our room was spacious with a desk and cozy chair. We had a small window that overlooked the courtyard below. The main House is just lovely. The gathering rooms are well appointed and inviting. There was a fire burning in the parlor, and...

A road trip across the US from Dallas to Savannah and back via Indianapolis gave us some great experiences in out-of-the-way American cities and this was one. Gorgeous town and a lovely Inn. Not a mansion perhaps as we might know it but quaint and friendly where the stairs were creakier than my knees. Met some interesting people here in...

Our first overnight stay in Georgia and the hosts welcomed us with homemade biscuits and tea in the parlour. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was excellent and made to order. The garden and house were impeccable.

My husband and I stayed at the 1842 Inn during one of his business trips. We were taken back by the beauty of the inn and the stellar service the employees provided to us. The food, especially the breakfast made for us, was absolutely delicious. We highly recommend anyone visiting Macon to stay here. The place and the employees are...
