“a fine specimen of Greek revival architecture”
The house, built in 1842 by John Gresham, is a fine specimen of Greek revival architecture. Mr. Gresham, a former mayor of Macon, attorney, judge and cotton merchant lived in the home until 1900 when it was purchased by the B. F. Adams family. The Adams family made significant changes, which include extending the front porch and erecting columns as well as installing parquet floor and Victorian tile insets on the fireplaces. The Victorian Cottage, which sits across the courtyard from the main house, was moved onto the almost 2 acre property to supplement the main house in 1983. The Cottage consists of nine fully furnished guest rooms with 12-foot ceilings, original heart of pine flooring and a large front porch overlooking the courtyard. The inn now consists of nineteen guest rooms, hospitality parlors, service facilities, as well as a courtyard and porches for entertaining.
Very great service. They have two buildings: the main house, and a cottage in the rear. They have a beautiful courtyard between the two buildings with plenty of seats/tables. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and led to our rooms.
As for breakfast -- we had the traditional breakfast and the french toast breakfast and they were both delicious.
You can also stay with your small dogs (not sure about cats) for $50 each.
