Historical Traveler Reviews Americus Garden Inn Bed & Breakfast
Had a wonderful time at Americus
Kim and Susan are wonderful people! They were fun to talk to and became instant friends. Their place is beautiful and comfortable (perfect temperature, comfortable bed) and the food was fantastic! My friends and I couldn't have had a better time.
A very charming and historic inn.
This beautiful pre-Civil War era mansion is very important historically, and has been lovingly restored by the owners. The house has such a charming, peaceful feeling about it. It just feels good. Our weekend there was a very refreshing and welcome getaway from the chaos of Atlanta. The owners, Kim and Susan, could not have been any nicer and more accommodating. The fabulous breakfasts they prepared each morning were delicious. All day long, there are refreshments available, including tasty home baked treats, candies and more. We were so pampered and we loved every minute of it! We highly recommend the Americus Garden Inn. We intend to revisit soon.
A Charming Retreat!
Just as soon as you drive up the street and first set your eyes upon this beautiful and charming Victorian Building, you know that you are in for a treat! Greeting you are the most delightful couple, Susan and her husband Kim Egelseer. Susan's cheerful demeanor and Kim's gentle, helpful service are the quallities that set the tone for what is to come.
The rooms are beautiful, ranging from the large and elegant jacuzzi room, perfect for a romantic getaway or honeymoon, to the balcony room in which it is a delight to relax on it's large balcony with a gliding swing as one listens to the crickets in the spring or a cool summer night and the relaxing sound of bubbling water from the fountain in the fish pond below.
Breakfast is wonderful as Susan prepares a variety of nutritious and unique pancakes each morning, a quiche, fruit and delicious home-made muffins to start your day in a gourmet way! Beverages of all sorts are available round the clock as are home-made snacks.
Relaxing at night with friends in the Victorian living room with piano music serenading one or joining guests in the dining room for a card game or conversation is a good way to wrap up one's day. If nights are comfortably warm, one can relax in the many comfortable chairs around the porch and the upstairs balcony off the main hallway.
All of these elements make it difficult to leave and will certainly warrent one making plans to come back to the turn of the century charm and such lovely hosts.
Best B & B I've Visited
Beautiful Inn. Large comfortable rooms, big beds-private baths-TV-VCR in each room. Food served is outstanding, home made and gourmet. Owners are super friendly, will do anything to make their guests happy. Very relaxing atmosphere. I've stayed there twice-will definitely go back and recommend highly this lovely, spotlessly clean B & B.
Can't Wait to go back to the Americus Garden Inn B&B
My family and I spent a most memorable weekend at the Garden Inn B&B in Americus GA. The accommodations were first class with every amenity being offered. We found the pre-Civil War Inn to be both charming and warm. The owners, Kim & Susan Egelseer, made each member of my family feel welcome and very comfortable, catering to all of our travel needs. But the highlight had to be the food. Breakfast at the Garden Inn rivals anything I have eaten at a four-star restaurant. No one walked away from the table still hungry. There were many things to do in Americus that kept us busy. But I think we all liked just hanging around the Garden Inn, relaxing and getting reacquainted as a family. We are already preparing for our next weekend trip to see our new-found friends, Kim and Susan, and enjoy our next stay at the pristine Garden Inn.
Wonderful! Breath Taking!
The Americus Garden Inn was absolutely wonderful. We needed a break from the hustle and bustle of life and we got it. Susan greeted us at the door by name and made us feel so welcome. The atmosphere was perfect for a romantic get away. Kim and Susan are the perfect host and hostess. It is very evident that they have found their calling and that they love their job. Susan's biscotti is a delightful evening treat with a cup of coffee. Breakfast was out-of-this-world-good! We are already planning our next trip back to the Americus Garden Inn. Thanks for everything!
this place is absolutely perfect. if you're looking for an elegant, yet right at home feel, this is it! it's romantic. it's peaceful. it's affordable. and the 3 course breakfast is delicious! but perhaps the most wonderful thing about americus garden inn, is the innkeepers.
Never stayed in a better B & B
With each trip I take time to read through the room journals containing other visitor's comments. It is immediately obvious that this Inn has three things in its favor. The house is worth a visit by itself (I have stayed in five of their rooms and plan to revisit to stay in the other three rooms in the very near future. The breakfasts are spectacular and you wish that they would serve evening meals as well. (However, with the quantty provided, I would soon gain 100 pounds) The Innkeepers were born to operate a B. & B. and every guest comments on how welcome they are made to feel. (The phrase "Southern Hospitality" is used by everyone fortunate to have found this gem.
Perfectly Romantic Bed & Breakfast
Kim and Susan do a superb job of creating a perfectly romantic atmosphere that is elegant, yet relaxed. The rooms are huge, the breakfasts are fabulous, Susan's biscotti is delcious and the hospitality is personal and attentive. What a fabulous find!
Charming introduction to B&B delights
The delightful Americus Garden Inn introduced my young children to the B&B concept. They were charmed by the delightfully enthusiastic husband and wife owners, and by the fish ponds, the porch (actually, lawn) swings, and the history of the Victorian home, and they adored the 24-hour access to delightful homemade treats. Breakfast was an epicurean delight. The room in which we stayed was large, attractive, and comfortably furnished. The Inn was spotless, and the owners worked diligently to ensure that we enjoyed our stay in their Inn and in their community. The Inn is about 15 minutes from Plains, GA, where you can hear former President Jimmy Carter teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church. A definite good choice for well-behaved families, or for adults seeking a quiet respite from daily labors!

I drove through the cemetery briefly before making my way south to Plains, Georgia and the Jimmy Carter NHS, less than a half-hour away, where I learned about the rural upbringing of the future President and his wife (including their influential school teacher who told her handful of students to do their best "in case you become President ...

We cross into Georgia and almost immediately there is a change. Some farm fields are a carpet of bright green (alfalfa or wheat???) Some fields have cattle and horses. One even had some donkeys. We got a good laugh when I call a miniature horse a "toy horse". Oh, well—whatever word works!
