Georgia B&Bs and Inns You'll Never Want to Leave
Give in to the unbeatable Southern hospitality and charm of these bed and breakfasts and inns.
From the mountains to the beach, Georgia's inns and bed & breakfast options exude Southern charm. Here are 11 inns in the Peach State whose appeal beckons an immediate reservation.
Dillard House Inn
The Dillard House Inn is a charming respite in the northeast Georgia mountains with affordable rooms that work for couples or families. Additionally, all the rooms are within walking distance to the restaurant, horse stables, pool and tennis courts. There is also a petting zoo, fully stocked trout pond and more. Pro tip: The restaurant serves some of the best Southern eats in Georgia.
The Farmhouse Inn
Madison is home to The Farmhouse Inn, where guests can experience the farm, hiking, water fun and more. The bright colors and fresh experience will mean you never want to go back home. 100 acres of land includes farm animals, hiking trails, use of canoes and kayaks, and more.
Glen-Ella Springs Inn
For those who love the mountains but don't want to give up life's luxuries, we recommend Glen-Ella Springs Inn & Restaurant, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Clarkesville. Your stay includes a cozy room, top-notch amenities and a decadent breakfast.
Those visiting Cumberland Island will adore a stay at the historic Greyfield Inn. It was originally built by the Carnegie family for their daughter, and it is now run by their granddaughter. It still holds the original detail and charm, and offers ferry transport, guided wilderness tours, the beauty of Georgia's untouched coast and more. Treat the family to an uncommon vacation at the Greyfield.
Inn at Serenbe
South of Atlanta, you'll find an oasis in the countryside - Inn at Serenbe. 27 rooms welcome you, spread over six different buildings. From the Main House to the Lake House, every room comes with afternoon tea, evening sweets and a full country breakfast.
Little St. Simons Island
Little St. Simons Island is an eco-friendly, all-inclusive experience that allows only 32 guests at a time to enjoy the peace and serenity of the marshlands and ocean. Stay here for a one-of-a-kind experience with the family. Try fishing, swimming, boating, biking and so much more.
Merry Acres Inn
Albany is filled with history and worth a weekend, but Merry Acres Inn could be reason enough to visit! The mineral-water pool, true Southern porch, impeccable dining options, and adorable rooms will delight couples and families, too.
The Overlook Inn
The Overlook Inn is an ideal escape for exploring Ellijay, especially with its mountain-top views. You'll find rustic, yet elegant rooms (some with jet tubs, private porches and fireplaces) and special touches for guests like local wine and cheese samples on weekends, Saturday night candlelight desserts, and more. All guests also enjoy a three-course homemade breakfast!
The Partridge Inn offers a landmark historical experience with modern touches and amenities. It's part of Hilton's Curio collection and dubbed "The Grand Hotel of the Classic South." Perched on a hill in Augusta's Summerville neighborhood, the inn is only moments from shopping, dining and more. Ask for a room with a balcony, and don't forget your swimsuit.
"Old Columbus" hospitality and allure is alive at the luxurious Rothschild-Pound House. Cottages and suites are beautifully decorated, and fireplace and Jacuzzi rooms are available. Breakfast is included in your stay. Ask about the special treats like a rose petal bath, vintage beer basket or a Fun Basket for kids.
Tybee Island Inn
Tybee Island Inn offers unique coastal charm. It was used in the filming of a few Georgia movies, probably because of its incredible live oaks, large porches and lush tropical gardens. Bonus: It's pet-friendly, and you're only a 5-minute walk to the beach.
