We stayed in the guest house for a three day anniversary weekend and actually had the whole place to ourselves. Everyone who worked there was very helpful and professional especially the man at the front desk, Chris I think. We didn't get a chance to eat at the restaurant but the continental breakfast was above average and very nice. The inn is a very convenient place to stay if you enjoy the historic district. We will be back.
We were able to stay at Joan's on short notice, though we had reserved a room at a nearby hotel. The 'garden' room with private entrance was lovely, comfortable and well equipped. Joan was very accommodating and a pleasure to talk with. Parking was included, which is so important in Savannah. The location was great and we were able to bike and walk everywhere. It was so much more comfortable than a hotel room and felt like home. Definitely would love to return - was a great place to stay.
This B&B is the closest thing to a stay in paradise. We stayed in the Carriage House. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud, the food was 5-star worthy, and the hospitality was genuine. You can tell that the proprietors care deeply about their guests, because the small, thoughtful touches are evident throughout the house and especially in the food. My husband looked forward to seeing what Monique (aka the breakfast fairy) made for us each day. I would give 6 stars if I could. It has far surpassed our past experiences and no doubt spoiled us for all B&B's in the future. We are already trying to figure out when we can come back.
We have stayed in many B&Bs over the last 7 years. This ranks as the best one yet. We stayed in the Chatham Suite, a 2 story suite that is part of a home build in 1854. It is located across the street from Chatham Square. Beautifully finished, including many paintings by William Armstrong. Downstairs has an open area for living and dining, containing 2 gas fireplaces. The kitchen behind this contained snacks as well as a welcoming bottle of wine on the dining table. Upstairs was a feather bed that you had to climb into using a step stool. This room also contained a gas fireplace. We felt like royalty. The bath was small but the very well done. The shower had a rain shower head, a double shower head, and a handheld shower head. There were also 2 small balconies, one behind the kitchen and one next to the bedroom. One unique thing was the breakfast. Instead of having to go to a central dining area at a specific time, Monique prepared breakfast the night before and left it in the refrigerator. The next morning we heated it up at our leisure. There was also juice, milk, coffee, tea makings, etc. I wish to thank Monique and her staff for a wonderful, relaxing, and unique experience. If you stay in Savannah you must try the Armstrong Inns.
My girlfriend and I booked a stay for her birthday, We had an amazing time. Every aspect was outstanding. We also took a ghost tour that included a stop at the 17Hundred90 Inn to learn a bit more about it. Would recommend a stay here.
This B&B is in a great location. You can walk to the main commercial street (Broughton) and nightlife area (River). Right around the corner is Forsyth Park which is great for a morning walk. We stayed in the Tree Top room which is very private and also very roomy. There is an older feel to things in this B&B but that's what we expected given it is a historical building. The morning's breakfast was delicious and all of the staff were friendly. Highly recommend this B&B.
My sister and my roommate from college had a lovely stay at the farm. We took a walkabout of some of the vast property and just swooned at the magnificent trees and wetlands. Breakfast was lovely and held us to dinner. Laura and Meredith kept us entertained with their southern story-telling manner and charm. It's not far to Savannah which held our attention quite beautifully. Thank you very much for the opportunity and hospitality.
We have just had a wonderful stay with Maurice and Glenn at Park Avenue Manor. What a beautiful and unique home. Very cozy, warm and inviting. As a guest, their entire home is available to you. Lovely sitting rooms. Maurice and Glenn pay close attention to detail in all aspects of their B&B, from posting the weather each morning to providing sherry, tea and coffee along with brownies for their guests each afternoon when they return from their exploration of Savannah. Our breakfast each morning was beautifully prepared and delicious. In good weather, there's a lovely patio outside to relax and enjoy. Their location at the southwest corner of Forsyth Park was perfect...an excellent starting point each morning for exploring Savannah. Maurice and Glenn were always available to us and were only too eager to share their knowledge and recommendations as well as to help with any arrangements. We strongly recommend their B&B as an ideal place to stay in Savannah. One of very favourite B&B's!
This was our first stay at the Ballastone, but it will definitely not be our last. We visit Savannah often and will now make the Ballastone our preferred Inn to stay at. The room (Gazebo Suite) exceeded our expectations as did the quality and variety of breakfast. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The inn is beautiful and centrally located to dining, shopping, and River Street. We highly recommend a visit to the Ballastone.
We enjoyed our stay in this traditional period property. Very old world Savannah. A unique room that was very comfortable and looked comfortable. The B&B is within walking distance of all the Savannah attractions. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. We would stay at this property again. Good website and easy online booking and information.
My husband and I definitely recommend Savannah's Bed and Breakfast Inn. We recently stayed there for several days in the midweek. The inn is close to downtown, an easy stroll away from many museums and restaurants. The rooms are quite lovely and offer small flatscreen TVs and wireless as well as all the other old-fashioned amenities. The breakfast really makes this B&B an outstanding value. On our first morning, we both had omelettes, and the chef was able to make mine with egg whites. I do not love eggs, but this omelette was tasty and satisfying. Some tourists with more willpower might use this breakfast as a way to skip lunch and do more in the city. The afternoon snacks were also delicious. On our last day, we were very pleased that the staff let us keep our suitcase with them although we had already checked out. (Neither my husband nor I drive, so dragging our suitcase around would have been awkward.) This B&B appears to draw a younger clientele, but it is still quiet. And there are cats! My one complaint is with the weather; it was too cold for us to spend much time in the courtyard with the three lovely cats, especially Midnight but also Peanut and Savannah.
We come to Presidents' Quarters every year for a "getaway." It's hard to pick just one best aspect about this B&B since everything is outstanding! The front desk help is always there to "help" you, in addition to being very personable. In talking with the staff, there is a very low turnover rate among the employees. We've seen the same front desk staff for years and they remember us as well. They're not going through the motions. You truly feel special when you interact with the staff! The late afternoon appetizers along with the morning breakfasts are extremely tasty, as well as creative! The location also can't be beat, located in the beautiful, shady historic district. We've tried other B&B's in the area, but we keep coming back to the Presidents' Quarters without even blinking. Truly a gem of Savannah!
We stayed in the 3rd floor apartment on both legs of our road trip to Florida. The apartment had plenty of room for our two dogs to move around and the full kitchen came in handy. There was a continental breakfast available in the apartment; the complementary water and bottle of wine were most appreciated. The bed was very comfortable. This apartment worked out perfectly for us!
My husband and I came here for the night and it was wonderful. The staff was really easy going and nice. It truly felt like we were guests in someone's home and breakfast was wonderful. I was even loaned a jacket because I forgot to pack one and didn't realize the difference in temp. We really enjoyed our stay in the mermaid room it was exactly what we needed for the short visit we had we will be back this year as well.
booked Galloway House for a two night stop on road trip from Key west to St Louis this was the best place we stayed stunning apartment, fantastic furniture and art wish we had more time to extend our stay
Savannah Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay! When returning to Savannah we chose to stay there again and will keep doing so. We have stayed in different rooms and each has their own charm and they are lovely. The staff is absolutely wonderful! We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday in Savannah. The staff assisted me by referring me to different places where I could purchase certain items to make my husband's day special. They also were very gracious in receiving these items and placing everything in our room to make his surprise wonderful. The breakfast is amazing! I have referred friends and will keep doing so. Not only is the Savannah Bread & Breakfast beautiful and cozy, the staff is so wonderful that is will make your stay perfect!!!!
we thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Ballastone Inn. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed. The inn was beautifullly decorated as well. The staff were very helpful, courteous, and friendly. The location of the Inn is convenient to many points of interest. After staying at the Inn, my husband wants us to stay at a B & B when we travel. The only suggestion I have is that the rooms should be equipped with a DVD player. Currently (as of 1/2/15), there is only ONE DVD player on the premises. Guests must reserve it on a first come first served basis
What a lovely place. There is a comfortable front porch, a lovely sunroom, and spacious living and dining areas. The kitchen is smallish, but ample enough for any cooking you want to do on your vacation. The house is a bit south of the downtown hustle and bustle though close enough to walk (1.5 miles). We ran downtown and back a few times and during the day we would park at Forsyth Park and walk the squares. At the end of the day, it was nice to get out of it all to our quiet neighborhood. The hosts are amiable and informative. They left provisions for a substantial continental breakfast, etc. etc. Hope to be back soon!
My family and I have stayed at Azalea Inn several times over the last few years during trips to Savannah. Azalea was our first Bed and Breakfast and has now become our "home away from home". From the delicious breakfast to the evening snack to the charming Inn keeper and staff...you will not be disappointed,
Was a cute little inn. Our room was big, with a beautiful fireplace. The dinner was amazing and I would highly suggest making reservations to stay there. Our waiter was outstanding and could really teach the inn staff how to be friendly. The inn staff was hit or miss with friendliness. The bar was nice, although it's frequented by locals who weren't keen on outsiders visiting. The location is excellent and very centrally located. There were constant tours driving by all hours of the day and night and you could clearly hear them until midnight each night. That was the most frustrating part. Also, they do allow kids, which is nice, unless there's one crying in the room next to you.
The room was a cozy and well decorated. The staff was very friendly and helpful, Fred at the front desk was extremely helpful. I would stay there again, you get what you are expecting a charming historic bed and breakfast. I would stay again for sure.
Descubre Savannah, la ciudad de los fantasmas
La ciudad de Savannah es la mayor y también la más antigua del estado de Georgia. Fue fundada en 1733 junto con la colonia de Georgia y se convirtió, unos años después, en la capital de la Colonia Real de Georgia. Conocida como “la ciudad anfitriona del Sur”, por la tradicional hospitalidad de los habitantes del sur de los Estados Unidos, recibe cada año la visita de millones de turistas. Es además famosa por sus fantasmas, tanto como puede serlo Salem, en Massachusetts. Las historias paranormales se remontan en esta ciudad a sus mismos inicios, y los incidentes documentados son numerosos.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Savannah
Entre los cinco distritos históricos de la ciudad se cuentan 22 plazas, cada una asociada a un momento distinto de la historia, y a lo largo de toda la ciudad hay varias iglesias y sinagogas, además de viviendas históricas en perfecto estado de conservación. Probablemente la más famosa sea la Mercer House, principal localización de la novela “Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal”, convertida hoy en un museo. En el centro histórico de la ciudad se conserva un cementerio de la época colonial y a no mucha distancia del centro se encuentran varios fuertes que sirvieron para la defensa de la ciudad durante la guerra civil estadounidense. El antiguo Cotton Exchange, construido en 1887, es de obligada visita. Antiguamente era el lugar en el que se llevaban a cabo todas las transacciones comerciales del algodón sureño, y lugar de partida y llegada de esta carga; su visita, junto con el recorrido por el Historic Riverfront Park es toda una experiencia.
Especialidades culinarias en Savannah
La ciudad cuenta con restaurantes para todos los gustos y bolsillos, muchos de ellos situados en la zona de los bed and breakfast de Savannah. En cualquier caso, esta es la ciudad perfecta para degustar los típicos platos de la gastronomía sureña, como el delicioso pollo frito al estilo sureño o los tomates verdes fritos.
Eventos destacados en Savannah
El evento anual más destacado de la ciudad es la celebración el 17 de marzo del día de San Patricio, con una fiesta de carnaval (la segunda mayor del país) que puede recordar al Mardi Gras que se celebra cada año en Bourbon Street en Nueva Orleans. Los primeros sábados de cada mes se celebra el “First Saturday on the River”, una celebración familiar en la histórica River Street, con ferias de arte y artesanía a la orilla del río, el evento ideal para disfrutar en familia.
El clima en Savannah
El clima en esta ciudad es excelente durante todo el año, con veranos cálidos e inviernos con temperaturas muy tolerables. Puedes empaparte de todo lo que la ciudad tiene que ofrecer, incluido su ambiente más misterioso, alojándote en una casa rural en Savannah.
