September, Here We Come!

September, Here We Come!
We can’t believe that we have been closed since March 2020. It is amazing how quickly time flies. As most of you know, we made a decision to wait until we could deliver our signature hospitality at 100% to invite guests back into our home.

This has been a challenging time for us. We chose not to borrow money as we did not want to jeopardize our financial future. So, we have scrimped and lived as frugally as possible to minimize our expenses. The capital improvements that we had planned were put on the back burner. We would have preferred to accomplish more with our time, but, did not have the financial resources to do more. We ask for your understanding that most exterior projects have not been completed.

Also, I had a health challenge that required surgery. I am fine. I am actually glad that it happened when it did so that I didn’t have to cancel any reservations as I recovered.

It looks like September will be our likely reopening. Hopefully, Covid will be far behind us in a couple of months. Which brings me to a subject that makes a lot of people uncomfortable. Will we require proof of vaccination? The answer is “no”. We believe everyone has the right to decide what is best for them. It is a personal health decision. If you want to wear a mask, feel free to do so. If you don’t want to wear a mask, don’t. We want everyone to feel safe and “at home”.

We will be serving our 3-course full hot breakfast in the dining room where we can treat you like the special person you are. If this would not feel comfortable for you, please wait to visit until you are comfortable. We want your stay with us to be perfect.

Kim is continuing to work on the railings around the front porch. He decided that the original wood was so beautiful that he didn’t want to hide all of it. From the outside, it is painted white as it always had been. But, the photo above offers a glimpse of the inside view. This project has definitely been a labor of love for Kim. Very time-consuming, but, I am extremely proud of his efforts and hope you will feel the same when you see it.

Fall is a beautiful time of year to visit Americus. The weather tends to be more comfortable to enjoy all the outdoor venues in Southwest Georgia including Andersonville National Historic Site, Jimmy Carter National Historical Park and Pasaquan. The views at Providence Canyon are exquisite once the leaves have fallen which is also the beginning of camellia season at Massee Lane Gardens.

We look forward to sharing our home with you in the near future. Please plan to stay several nights to allow enough time to relax and enjoy all the area has to offer. See you soon!
