What a beautiful Inn. Set in the historic district of Macon the 1842 is what you picture an Antebellum Southern home to be. Grand and welcoming. The rooms are all furnished in period items and perfectly appointed. The evening reception is what you would expect with unique/nicely presented appetizers and beverages. Breakfast is a delightful experience. You place your order...

When we travel north from Florida this is always our favorite stop!! Shirley was the warmest and most special concierge we have had in years. She was so kind and helped us order food and eat in the parlor since I we were really tired. We have stayed in many of the rooms but like the back porch and the...

We stayed at 1842 last night for the 3d time over the last 12 months. This time, we stayed in the Hawkins room in the Victorian cottage. As usual, we were greeted warmly, enjoyed the large room, comfy high bed, and had a wonderful breakfast. Let me also add that my wife left something behind in the room and EJ...

We had a single overnight stop here en route to Savannah so did not really have the time to enjoy the beautiful 1842 Inn fully. We stayed in the Nancy Hanks room which fronts the courtyard and is quiet. The room is a reasonable size with a compact bathroom, we found the decor and fittings a bit dated and dull....

This hotel made our stay in Macon special. Although it's grandeur gave you a great impression of past times in a grand antebellum house, you felt it was your home while you were there. We met lovely people there: all staff and several guests. Good location for walking to downtown places of interest. We didn't feel at all restricted as...

Driving up and seeing the majestic columns of this old Southern mansion again, all I could think of was "Ah, we're back home." JoAnne treats guests like family and the inn echoes of simple, quiet days gone by in the old South. Beautiful and charming rooms, and a peacefulness that is second to none...can't wait to go back-- yet again.

This is an elegant old Inn that makes every guest feel special. The personal attention to detail was greatly appreciated. We loved the beautiful antiques and furnishings throughout the house and cottage and especially enjoyed a wonderful breakfast! Will definitely stay here again. Don't be afraid to stay in the cottage. We stayed in the Douglas room and it was...

This is the second visit to this wonderful place. Last time was in the rooms out back but this time was in the elegant main building. We enjoyed cocktails on the big front porch. The room was large and tastefully decorated. We ordered breakfast with a couple of changes and were asked if the Kitchen had the order correct. Which...
