Americus Garden Inn was the perfect overnight experience after visiting Jimmy Carter's childhood home in Plains, Ga. I took my grands, ages 16,13, and 10, to Plains to have an experience of what life was like before the modern conveniences which their generation takes for granted. After the primitive farm, the Inn was the perfect place to enjoy modern comforts while imagining this ante-bellem house before such existed. We enjoyed an evening of games and movies from the Inn's ample selection. The breakfast was a delicious and beautiful feast and my hungry crew enjoyed it all immensely. The young people even made music for me with the parlor piano and ukulele. The beautiful furnishings inspired beautiful manners from them. Not only is the Inn a wonderful retreat for travelers, it is also an educational opportunity for gracious living over 2 centuries. The price of 2 rooms so each of us could have our own beds was quite reasonable given the quality and comfort of the accommodations and the excellence of the breakfast. We enjoyed conversation with our charming hosts who are knowledgeable over a variety of subjects. I hope to return and will encourage my family and friends to enjoy this lovely abode.
