Susan and Kim Egelseer

Kim and Susan Egelseer, the owners of the perennial favorite Americus Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast since 2002, said they are sincerely grateful for the many people who have shared their experiences at the B&B on TripAdvisor. “For us, this is very personal,” said Kim. “This is our home, we have no staff, we personally attend to all of our guests’ needs.” Susan added, “This is not a job. This is our life. We take an active interest in all of our guests and treat them as treasured friends.” They explained the difference between a stay at their B&B and a hotel. “Hotels care about heads in beds. We care about people and making a personal connection,” said Kim. Susan added, “Most of our guests come to have an authentic experience, to unplug from the virtual world, and enjoy a slower pace.”
“A wonderful experience,” “Perfect,” “Amazing Hosts – Amazing Bed and Breakfast” are just some of the most recent guest reviews of the Americus Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast.
