Amazing Stay

5 on September 15, 2013

We came to Savannah this weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday and our 2 year anniversary. From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the Inn at 909 Lincoln! We stayed in the room with the balcony (can't remember the name) and it was amazing!! The room was huge, as well as the bathroom! There was a large tub for relaxing baths, as well as a separate shower; and 2 sinks in the bathroom. You could step out into the balcony from the bathroom. Elaine was a great hostess; made the most delicious breakfast every morning! She was warm and friendly; which added to the experience of our trip. The decor was very fitting for Savannah. We highly recommend staying at The Inn at 909 Lincoln if you plan to visit Savannah.

Enjoyable experience

Our stay was very enjoyable. Elaine made us feel very welcomed, breakfast was awesome. The Inn made us feel very much at home. We would recommend this Inn to any one going to Savannah. We will miss it very much. Thank you again Elaine for the wonderful stay.

The perfect spot for a romantic night (or two) in Savannah

After all the back and forth of looking at different B&B's for our short visit to Savannah, once we arrived at the Inn at 909 Lincoln, I was thrilled with our choice. My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in the beautiful Ginger Mercer room -- and it was everything we hoped it would be. Beautiful, elegant, and comfortable. It's a great room for a couple -- almost a little suite, with the large bathroom with double sinks, and the small porch where you can relax and read and plan your day, or wind down the evening. The entire home is restored to perfection and smartly decorated with Southern charm, but without being fussy. Neighborhood is close enough to walk to most things, which we did. Though street parking wasn't a issue, it was nice to be able to use the enclosed parking in back. Elaine is welcoming, generous and genuine. Her recommendations were super-helpful and spot-on, and she makes a lovely breakfast. We felt very much at home. In fact, we enjoyed our first night so much we decided to extend our stay another night. We fell in love with Savannah, and hope to go back soon -- and can't wait to stay here again!

If you are looking for a B&B that feels like home please make sure you call Elaine and get yourself booked in! We were treated so well and she has so much knowledge of the city with so many wonderful suggestions that our trip wouldn't nearly be what it was without her guidance! We stayed in the beautiful Ginger Mercer Room with its spectacular 4 poster bed, lounger under the window filled with pillows and a massive bathroom that had a lovely patio area off of it. And then there was breakfast - the love she puts into each meal and the daily creations are scrumptious! This coming from a recognized food snob! Elaine also has a fantastic reputation with all the tourism providers in the city so we got the extended friendliness from them. Overall, as two single ladies heading down for a girls trip Elaine helped make it memorable and wonderful! A must stay if the opportunity is available!!

A Perfect Savannah Retreat!!!

4.8 on August 14, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at 909 Lincoln. Not only was our room spectacular (we stayed in the Ginger Mercer room), the service received far exceeded our expectations. Elaine was accommodating, welcoming and wonderfully attentive. She was a true gem of a host and quite talented, taboot!! Elaine's eye for style and design (as evidenced by the inn's decor) is superb; not too much, not too little - it was just right. With respect to our room, the claw-foot tub was phenomenal, the bed extremely comfortable, and the balcony perfect for sipping evening cocktails. In addition, everything was spotless! Finally, as it concerns location, the inn was removed enough from the hustle-n-bustle of the downtown area but close enough to be considered walker-friendly. We highly recommend the Inn at 909 Lincoln to anyone looking for the perfect Savannah retreat - be it a solitary outing, couple or any pairing, for that matter. Thank you, Elaine, for a perfect birthday weekend and my first time in Savannah. I cannot think of a better way to have spent it!!!
