The Farmhouse Inn
at Hundred Acre Farm
1051 Meadow Lane, Madison, GA.
"Peaceful, relaxing, lovely ...and chickens!"
We took a quick trip to the Athens area and decided to drive the Antebellum Trail on the way back home, so we stopped in Madison for the evening. We had found the Farmhouse Inn prior to leaving and had booked a one-night stay. It was definitely a highlight of the trip! We stayed in the Hay Loft, which was roomy, comfy, very clean, and had beautiful natural light. I loved the whole experience - the chickens, goats, two very friendly turkeys, the night sky, breakfast, the amazing garden, the innkeepers, all of it. Being a city kid, I got a huge kick out of the chickens and now I hope to have some one day. It was also fun to look at the books/magazines of weddings at the farm; what a wonderful location! I would love to go back!
The warmth and comfort of the Farmhouse Inn and the innkeepers is exceptional. The surroundings, the rooms, the breakfast all beg for a repeat visit..... soon! The Johnsons "were made" for hospitality and innkeeping. We are thankful for our time there. Don't miss it!
"A Wonderful Getaway"
My husband and I stayed here for two days while we "did" Madison. I thought shopping would be the highlight of the trip, but it was the farm. I wanted a place my husband would enjoy after traipsing through the stores and this was perfect. From walking the trails to the meadow and the river, to watching the 100 chickens scurrying, and the bluebirds near the terrace, it was all wonderful. The decor is just right for a farm, the bed very comfortable, and the fresh egg breakfasts delicious. We will be going back.
"Just went for the breakfast"
- Cyrus S
During a trip last weekend to Madison, Georgia, my girlfriend and I stayed at the James Madison Inn in downtown Madison and it was lovely for the most part, but the breakfast was a bit of a let-down. After hearing how great the breakfast was at the Farmhouse Inn at Hundred Acre Farm, we decided to swing by there and ask if they could accomodate us the next morning. Wow, were we glad we did.
The Farmhouse Inn is a beautiful piece of property with a working farm and substantial vegetable garden and orchard, which they use to supply the breakfast side of this B&B. The barnyard is placed far enough away from the residence so guests aren't woken by the chickens, but they produce the kind of eggs us cityfolk dream of. The owners of the farm were lovely and gave us a tour of the gardens and offered to let us walk around the property and even fish in the lake. And the breakfast was amazing: peach and pecan bread pudding, with homegrown peaches and pecans(!), local sausage and homemade rosemary & sourcream biscuits.
We will definitely be staying there next time we're in Madison!
"Wonderful Surprise Trip"
My husband suprised me with a trip to The Farmhouse Inn for my birthday. We have been to several B&B's before, but this was our best experience by far. The breakfast was wonderful and our room was very comfortable and clean. One of the added benefits of our stay was the great staff, Wes was very hospitable. We enjoyed our stay very much!
"Perfect in every way"
As a single adult travelling with three young children my somewhat chaotic arrival at The Farmhouse Inn was met with gentle charm by Melinda. Nothing was too much trouble, and my psp/internet/tv watching charges were captivated by the animals, lakes and scavenger hunts this magical place offered.
Must also mention the breakfasts which were greeted with similar awe. If I am lucky enough to find myself in beautiful Madison again there is nowhere I would rather stay.
This is one of the best inn experiences you are likely to have. On vast property encompassing trails, woods, a pond, and a beautiful lakefront vista, the Farmhouse Inn is an impeccably designed b&b of recent construction -- with a simple, colorful design scheme, very comfortable beds, quiet central air, and gentle views across pasture and woodland. Just five miles from quaint Madison, Georgia, the Inn is clearly an object of care and special attention from the family that owns and operates it. Completely free of over-posh Laura Ashley-ization (and also free of the ridiculously inflated prices that usually accompany such pretentous inns), this place is a study in warmth and sincerity -- the reality is totally consistent with the web site, if not more delightful. If you want a civilized, tranquil rural escape only a bit more than an hour from Atlanta, there's no question: this is the place.
