Plains Historic Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Plains B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 March 2013

We enjoyed our visit to Plains so very much. The Historic Inn in Plains could not have been nicer or more welcoming. The rooms are decorated to the decades starting with the 20's and ending with the 80's. They are warm and inviting and very clean and well maintained. Jan and her crew are all so friendly and made us feel so welcomed. Being at Pres. Carter's church for Sunday School was one of our "bucket list" events in our life. We look forward to returning as soon as our schedule will allow.

We happened across this little town of Plains Georgia and found a fantastic getaway. You will find history (former Pres Carter); charm (the little downtown); inviting (the people of Plains are wonderful!); there are not enough words in the English dictionary to describe our wonderful experience there. The Inn was a first for us--and I am sure we would never find another this pleasant:Miss Jan, George, Gloria, & Miss Ruby are like old friends! Our attendance at Maranatha Bapt Church was one we will never forget listening to Jimmy Carter in his Sunday School Class. Ms Rosalynn was so warm & friendly. We are going to go back over & over until we have stayed in each of the 7 rooms depicting the furniture of each decade 1920's to the 1980's. We stayed in the 1950's & 1920's rooms & they were equally roomy & comfortable--50's in the back & 20's facing the front. Reasonably priced, you feel as if you are at home with no housework! Ms Jan is the best!! We can't wait until we can go again! The peanut butter ice cream was so good--at one of the shops along the "business district" & lots of antiques to look at & purchase. We were not even entertaining the idea of spending the night--but when there was a last minute cancellation, & we saw the rooms, we decided in a hurry to stay! Lo & behold if we didn't like it so much we ended up staying another night!!!

Room Tip: Look at the rooms first, the doors are open to view each room, then make a decision as to your own l...

Enjoyed the weekend fulfilling a long-time wish to hear President Carter teach Sunday School. Everything about the trip, starting with this wonderful gem of an inn, exceeded our expectations!! Would love to stay here again.

The Historic Inn in Plains, GA is a treasure... truly a trip back in time to small town living and accomodations. We stayed in the 1930's room, claw foot tub and all... very comfortable and the Innkeeper, Miss Jan, and her assistants were very welcoming and hospitable. We would certainly stay there again.
We also went to church and sunday school with President Jimmy Carter. Lots to see about his childhood and life in Plains.

Room Tip: Rooms are decorated according to decades, starting with 1920 through 1980.

We like to do a family trip for the Christmas holiday and this year we decided to go to Plains, GA and have the great honor of attending President Carters Sunday School class. We were very fortunate at such a late date to "clear the wait list" to stay at the Plains Historic Inn. We arrived late in the evening and when we called Jan, the Inn Keeper, (as per the instructions we'd been given for late arrival) she pointed us a few steps down the street to the Cafe and arrived to check us in just as we finished our delicious meal. She welcomed us warmly and showed us to our room providing the history of the Inn and encouraged us to peek into the rooms that were not booked that evening. The Inn itself is welcoming, warm and absolutely lovely. Decade dedicated rooms were clearly lovingly planned with little bits of whimsey strategically placed. Because we were there just a few days before Christmas, the Inn was festive with decorated Christmas trees in each room. Our room (the "50's) was spacious and immaculate. I padded around next morning in sweats at 5:30 am and made coffee in the gathering room/kitchen, wrapped up in a quilt from our room and settled onto the couch in the quiet to read through the scrapbooks of local history sitting out for guests. Continental breakfast is available and our family spent the morning sharing experiences around the huge plank table with other guests as they wandered out for breakfast. Attending President Carters Sunday School Class is a strictly coordinated event and Jan the Innkeeper is the self proclaimed drill sergeant in charge. Follow the directions she provides and you will be part of a truly amazing experience on Sunday morning. We were in awe that President and Mrs. Carter stand for pictures with each family after the service. What a Christmas gift! Our trip to Plains was a once in a lifetime experience. Our thanks to all involved who made our weekend stay such a memorable family experience.

I'm so happy that while visiting the Jimmy Carter High School and Museum in Plains, Georgia, I asked the attendent about any local motels. His reply, with a big smile, 'Yes, we have a nice place to stay within walking distance', 'would you like us to call and see if they have an available room?'. His description of the Inn was enough to get us to walk into the Inn's 'office' in the antique store. Loved our overnight stay in the 1920 Room with its decorative iron bed frame, so comfortable! Very spacious with a reading area and a TV or sitting room. A desk for writing or checking the Internet. The bathroom reminded me of my grandmothers apartment building, ca 1900, in downtown Kansas City. Have you ever flushed a toilet by pulling on a chain? You can't find a more pleasant stay or a better value.

I was on a 9-day history trip through the South with my 10-year old son, and we stayed for a night at the Plains Historic Inn. It is simply outstanding. They have put a great deal of love and care into making each room reflect its corresponding decade. We stayed in the 1940s room, which was perfect for us as it had two beds. Each room is very spacious, and extremely clean. The common area is impeccable. I'm starting to run out of superlatives. The folks who work there are very nice too! The area is cool for a few hours if you are into history. We are no particular fans of Carter, but the Park Service has done a terrific job at Carter's boyhood homestead, and his high school. We probably drove about an hour out of our way to make this stop, and it was well worth it.

Room Tip: Didn't mean to rate the pool as terrible. There is no pool. No room service either, but that...
