This is a CHARMING historic Inn! When I write charming I am including the building, rooms, decor, outside, and the people who run and work the Inn too!!! Gloria, Charles,... read more EJ, Rachel and Lance plus the chef and all of the rest of the staff were kind and pleasant our entire stay!!
We want to come back and we will tell friends and neighbors! Macon was fun too, as a westerner, to experience southern charm at its finest! We brought our licensed well-behaved therapy dog and his new little mini-me and could not have been happier walking to the cute little park down the street.

While looking for a B & B while on a road trip, we discovered the 1842 Inn. The inn is absolutely beautiful with period antiques and many rooms on the... read more first floor to relax or meet with others. We stayed in the large carriage house behind the main house and were pleasantly surprised to have a very large room with a king size bed and full sofa and large closet and attached bath. The bed was very comfortable and we felt like royalty. Our delicious breakfast the next day was served on the terrace located between the main house and carriage house. The inn is located on College St. which has many beautiful historical mansions and is actually part of several blocks of homes on the registry of historic places. We will be back!

Fabulous hotel. From check in to check out everything was flawless.
Met by Gloria who could not do enough for us.
Bedroom was gorgeous, clean and everything you would expect... read more from an historic gem of a hotel.
There is an honesty bar with more bourbon variety’s than you imagined were made!
Gloria kept wine and mini hors d'oeuvre flowing as we chatted with other guests in the beautiful lounge.
Breakfast was fabulous. Beautifully cooked and presented. Attentive staff without being overly intrusive.
Wonderful grand dame of a hotel, staffed by people who love they’re job. I cannot recommend it more highly.

If you ever are passing through Macon and need a place to stay or if you are looking for a romantic getaway 1842 Inn is the perfect place to stay.... read more Full disclosure, I would not bring young children here. You feel like you are spending the night in a museum. It is a beautiful antebellum home, with immaculate landscaping, with rooms and rooms of old beautiful furniture. Even the bedrooms were amazing. Enjoy free non-alcoholic drinks and hors d’oeurves on the veranda or inside in the parlor. If you taste is more towards the stronger stuff, they have an outstanding bourbon selection. Delicious breakfast with many options (even gluten free). Gloria, the host is a treasure. I could not recommend this place more.
Lots of pictures included

This Inn is a hidden gem in the awesome city of Macon. We traveled thru some questionable areas to get there but once we settled in, all worries disappeared. The... read more city of Macon is going thru a revitalization. It is so wonderful to see such historic buildings being repurposed.
Back to the Inn... We arrived at 5:30 pm, many guests were enjoying drinks on the massive front porch. Time slows down in Macon and this is the perfect place to stay if you need a recharge. The staff was wonderful and always helpful. Breakfast is included in the stay and my husband and I enjoyed our meal on the courtyard. The sounds of the birds and nature was a perfect playlist.
Our room was very cozy and very quiet. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well. All in all, this was a perfect place to spend a few days on our road trip vacation. More

Our room was a step back in time, but with any convenience you would have at home.

We enjoyed the well stocked bar of single malt whiskeys and single barrel bourbons, while sitting in on the beautiful porch, indulging in uninterrupted conversation. Our breakfast selections were carefully prepared and served with elegance. We will return More

Passing through and looking for a relaxing inn and chose the 1842 Inn after a review of their website and the reviews here.
The property is located on the... read more lovely College Street with a convenient covered drive through and convenient on property parking.
Check in was a breeze and the two young ladies were friendly and efficient giving us a bit of history, overview of the inn and a recommendation for dinner.
We booked the Macon Room in the main house and it was perfect for us as it was sizeable, well appointed, had a working fireplace and spotlessly clean.
After dinner when we returned, we enjoyed a bottle of champagne from the bar and enjoyed sitting in the lounge and conversing with another couple staying at the inn.
Breakfast was delivered to our room and it was very good. The french toast and scone was delicious.
This was a superior stay as the accommodations were wonderful and staff friendly and helpful. Look forward to another stay in Macon at the 1842 Inn. More

Built in 1842, this Greek Revival antebellum mansion has been converted into an elegant bed-and-breakfast, the No. 1 hotel in Macon, Georgia. Located at 353 College Street, at 2nd Avenue,... read more nestled atop a hill with a panoramic view of the city, 1842 Inn oozes with architectural beauty, including 17 columns, a wraparound veranda and a front portico for guests to enjoy the scenery. The property also includes a bar/lounge, an adjacent Victorian cottage, fine English antiques and paintings, oriental carpets, tapestries and elaborate draperies. Is this Tara or what? My wife and I stayed here with friends in the 1990s but today the venue is even grander than ever. Luxurious, clean, sparkling, charming, what original owner John Gresham must have envisioned when the former mayor of Macon and wealthy merchant designed the house and while he lived in it until 1900. Interestingly, my wife and I booked the John Gresham Room for our visit. Located upstairs in the mansion, it features a king-size bed, private bathroom, free wi-fi, flat screen TV and iron and ironing board. Guests immediately sense they are in for a special experience upon arrival, when they are greeted with complimentary hor d'oeuvres. Other amenities include a 24-hour front desk, free parking, concierge, complimentary internet access and a complimentary full breakfast with a morning newspaper. This is what Southern hospitality is all about. More

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... read more 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. More

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... read more 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! More

Complimentary hors d’oeuvres were... read more 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! More

After a rainy day and many hours of travel through Atlanta and traffic jams we arrived 3 hours later than expected! Our hostess was so gracious and brought us drinks on the veranda!
