“One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at!”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Americus Garden Inn a few months ago and we highly recommend it. We chose the Inn based on the TripAdvisor ratings. Sometimes I wonder about TripAdvisor ratings, knowing it is so easy to game the system, but in this case the ranking of #1 B&B in Georgia is well worth it! I am so glad that we came here.

The inn, as you can see from the photos other people have posted, is a beautiful house and it is in a lovely, historical neighborhood. It is nice to take a walk around the neighborhood and see all the other historical houses. The garden at the Inn is filled with flowers and trees and a nice swinging bench to sit on under a gazebo. We stayed in the room with the balcony overlooking the garden and really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the evenings ... so peaceful.

Much has been said about Susan's breakfasts, which deserve every bit of praise they have received on TripAdvisor. I don't think I have had a bettter breakfast anywhere. Susan is such a kind, friendly, and helpful host ... actually she is more like a friend than a host. I especially loved when she told us the history of the house.

Our bed was very comfortable and the room had all the amenities you need. I especially liked the special touch of finding chocolate treats in our room at night. This is the kind of attention to detail that sets this place apart from the rest. There is a library with dvds and books that you can borrow from, there is a nice sitting room downstairs to enjoy, and the breakfast room is very cozy. Plus, there are waters and sodas left out at all times in case you get thirsty.

The location is really very cool, too. At first my husband thought I was crazy - taking him to Americus, Georgia. What the heck are we going to do there, he asked. Little did he know that there are 2 very interesting historical places to visit right nearby. One is Andersonville/Fort Sumter National Historic Site, which should be on any history buff's list of places to visit. Even if you aren't a history buff, you will still find this very interesting. Also at this location is the National Prisoner of War museum. Very educational and moving. The other site nearby Americus is Plains, Georgia - the birthplace of former president Jimmy Carter. It was so neat to visit his boyhood home on a farm. And also to visit the museum about his life and career in a former schoolhouse.

One of the nice things about staying at the Americus Garden Inn was that Susan gave us some tips about how best to see both of these special places, so if you are going to Americus and want to see these sights (really, both are "must-sees" if you are in Americus) then make sure to talk to Susan or Kim before you go and they'll give you all the information you need to know.

Thank you Susan and Kim for a wonderful stay!

Dear Morel:

Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and detailed review. We truly appreciate that you took the time to share your total experience at the Americus Garden Inn.

The Balcony Suite is definitely a favorite for guests who enjoy a quiet, private place to sit with a view of the garden while listening to the waterfall in the pond. We are so glad that you were comfortable and found our amenities enjoyable.

Although Americus may seem to be "off the beaten path", there is lots of history to explore including the 2 National Historic Sites located less than a 15 minute drive from Americus. It is our pleasure sharing our knowledge about our area to ensure that our guests can make the most of their time.

Thank you again for choosing to stay with us.

Warm regards,
Kim and Susan Egelseer

My wife and I recently spent our Anniversary weekend at Americus Garden Inn. This was our third time staying at this beautiful, comfortable, and hospitable B&B. Kim and Susan were the ultimate hosts and Innkeepers, they saw to all the possible ammenities that make a stay at any B&B simply fantastic! It is so nice to have warm and friendly hosts that take you in and treat you like family from the moment you check in to the 'good-byes' on the last day. The house itself is a charm from it's 19th century architecture to the exquisite decorating of all the rooms and common areas. The gardens have been meticulously laid out to provide a peaceful stroll for relaxation and reflection. Kim & Susan serve the most delectable breakfast one could ever ask for. Simply put, this was one of the best weekend getaways that we have ever experienced, and will be coming back in the near future.

Our experience staying at the Americus Garden Inn was delightful. My husband and I traveled with another couple on a short jaunt to see some of the sights in southwestern Georgia. We accidentally discovered this outstanding bed and breakfast, and what a nice treat. We were warmly welcomed to the beautiful property. Susan and Kim are amazing hosts and provide nearly any amenity one can think of. They were also helpful in making dinner plans and suggestions for sights to see. The common areas are warm and friendly and designed to make a relaxing evening a certainty. A large selection of refreshments and snacks are available for the taking. The rooms are roomy, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The bed linens are marvelously comfy for sleeping. And then there was the delicious and plentiful breakfast....fresh fruit, warm scones, shirred eggs. one of Susan many pancake recipes, good coffee. Who could ask for more? Undoubtedly Americus Garden Inn tops our list of B&B's we have visited.

We spent two months exploring Georgia during February and March 2012. We made a point of staying at Bed & Breakfast Inns. The Americus Garden Inn was a delight. We felt thoroughly welcomed upon arrival. I have Celiac so require a gluten free diet and was most impressed with every breakfast. Special gluten free muffins every morning were great and the ones I took on our day trips were life savers as we toured the country side. This area is a special part of America and if you ever decide to see this part of Georgia, this is a MUST STAY place. We loved the room and enjoyed every recommendation ranging from where to eat to how to see certain parts of the country in order to enjoy them the most. A Great Place. Chris

Room Tip: We did not see all the rooms but the Inn is situated in a quiet area so I would imagine all the room...

Dear Chris:

We are so glad that staying in our 1847 home enhanced your visit to this very special part of Georgia. There are so many historical venues to explore and we appreciate the opportunity to share our recommendations on how to utilize your time to make the most of your visit.

I personally understand the struggle to find appropriate dining options when allergies/intolerances may be a problem. It was my pleasure to provide you with breakfast foods that were safe and satisfying!
