I loved my room. Furnished as it would have been in Antebellum times but with all the comforts of today. The breakfast was fantastic. Get the Strawberry French Toast. The bed was very comfy, and the staff was great.
We stayed for one night in late September 2021. The place is a bit shabby but charming decor and well located. Our smallish room (George Walton Room) was on the first floor with a door opening to the outside back porch of the house. When we adjusted the air conditioner blasting cold air we noticed a very disagreeable musty, damp odor permeating the room. We think the odor came from the wall to wall carpeting — what appeared to be a heavy synthetic carpet that needed cleaning and/or was retaining water. It was not a comfortable night. We both had stuffy noses in the morning and were thankful we were only spending one night there. Otherwise the staff was friendly and the bathroom was clean.
I researched the B&Bs in Macon, and 1842 Inn kept rising to the top. We elected to stay in the actual original home in the Macon Room, which was large and comfortable with fantastic light during the day and large windows overlooking the front yard. The service was FANTASTIC, especially in terms of Gloria and EJ, who waited on us extensively during our time spent enjoying the property. We had breakfast on the front porch, drank wine with our appetizers (included with the room) on the front porch, and were served fresh cookies the evening we stayed in. The breakfast is well presented, but limited in terms of other B&Bs we've stayed in. The scones are really delicious and made fresh on-site - don't miss them. The building itself is, well, quite old, and is in need of external painting, and some of the furniture in the room is in need of replacement. The room's bathroom was overly basic, and detracted quite a bit from the quaintness of our stay. And be aware that the rooms in the front of the home (2nd floor) will pick up any talking from the patio below, a problem one night when people stayed late and were on the louder side. Plenty of parking, and an easy walk to/from town. Eat at Dovetail for a fantastic elevated dinner!…
Hospitality was very good! We were in the Macon Room - bathroom was small, but maybe they are all that way. Bed comfy. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres were wonderful in the parkour - had good selection in the cash bar, but the desk clerk wasn’t sure how to mix the drinks. Breakfast was very good! Could have eaten in your room, the parkour or in nice courtyard area outside. Loved the big front porch - we enjoyed a bottle of wine there! If you drive a large vehicle, it is a little tight to pull into the registration entrance - we opted to park behind vs try this with a Suburban. Location is in a nice area with large beautiful properties! Would stay here again…….we also had dinner at Oliver’s Corner Bistro - wonderful dinner! 4 minute drive!
My wife and I spent two days/nights at the 1842 Inn. All the people on staff were super nice, helpful, and accommodating. The inn is so amazing and the bed was very comfortable. I highly recommend spending some time there, you won't regret it!
