The Plains Bed & Breakfast Inn
100 W. Church St.
Nestled away in the countryside of southwest Georgia is the current home and hometown of our 39th U.S. President, Jimmy Carter. Boasting of a population of 635, you will find Southern hospitality at its best as you walk the downtown or residential areas.
The Plains Bed and Breakfast was built by the Rev. Augustus Caesar Wellons. He built many of the homes in Plains as well as the Plains Baptist Church.
This impressive Victorian home on the corner of Church and North Hudson Streets was constructed in 1910 and has several features which make it unique. It makes extensive use of dark wood paneling and has both a front and a back staircase.
The foyer, parlor and dining room each have molded metal ceilings similar to those later used in several local buildings including the bank. These three rooms have beautiful wood wainscoting with each area being a bit different from the others. The magnificent foyer has formal interior columns. Most of the walls are plastered or of subtle wood artistry. Windows in many rooms go down nearly to floor level; this gave maximum area to let in refreshing breezes during hot summer weather. The high ceilings were also helpful in keeping occupants cool as were the open transoms over interior doors. Fortunately, air-conditioning offers much more comfort than either.
Earl and Lillian Carter, parents of President Jimmy Carter, had an apartment there just before Jimmyâ€™s birth.
The house has four guest rooms, each with a separate bath, and with no two bedrooms decorated the same. There is also the "Paula Deen Cottage," a small apartment with a loft bed, at the rear that can be used by guests when needed.
We are located on U.S. Highway 280 directly across the street from Plains City Hall and the Train Depot. Please contact us for reservations or more information.
