Even if you have no reason to visit Macon, Georgia, you need to visit the 1841 Inn. As well as ticking all the usual boxes (location, comfort, amenities etc) this hotel ticks all the extraordinary and unusual boxes as well. Where else can you stay in a genuine antebellum mansion, surrounded by glorious antiques, living an elegant lifestyle from a bygone age and enjoying an unparalleled standard of Southern hospitality? From the moment we walked into reception, we were made to feel as the most welcomed guests in a private home. Before we'd even opened our mouth, Miss Gloria greeted us with "Now I'm guessing y'all must be the Harrisons? I'm serving hors d'oeuvres in the parlour in an hour so we need to get y'all settled in and comfortable!" Magical! And the magic continued throughout our stay with everyone we met falling over themselves to make our stay memorable and unique, from Miss JoAnne making the hugest fuss over my recent 50th birthday (which she'd spotted from our passport details) to Miss Gloria (2) keeping us topped up with drinks and snacks from the kitchen. We have no particular reason to go back to Macon, lovely as the town is. But go back we will, because this hotel is a true find and we cannot recommend it highly enough!
