We spent three days/two nights at this B&B to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We live just north of Atlanta where life is loud, full, and busy. What a joy it was to steal away to the little town of Americus and stay at the Americus Garden Inn. Kim and Susan were excellent hosts! That was evident before we even arrived. Susan called to confirm our reservations and to thoroughly inquire about any particular needs we might have, what kinds of food we liked, if we had any food allergies, etc. As we approached the door to our room there was a "congratulations" banner posted above the door. Upon entering our gaze was immediately directed toward the bed which had 29 rose petals on it with heart shaped chocolates in the center. If we wanted coffee in the middle of the afternoon our hosts brewed it. If we needed wine chilled for the evening it was there in the room waiting for us, when we returned from dinner. We really did feel like we were personal guests in their home.
The gardens were beautifully manicured and the fragrance of Jasmine and white magnolias filled the air. My wife and I had the simple pleasure of sitting amidst all of this and appreciating the beauty of what God had created. Kim and Susan possessed a wealth of interesting and helpful knowledge, whether it was about the history of the inn or where to enjoy a nice dinner out. The inn was clean, well maintained and in a nice area of historic houses. It seemed like our hosts went out of their way to make our visit a special one as evidenced by their eagerness to serve us. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them. It was both the house and the hosts which made our 29th wedding anniversary a most memorable occasion! The Americus B&B is a great place for a get away and we would recommend it to anyone.
