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

4.8 on August 03, 2013

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!!!

Beautiful Home But Loud

3.6 on August 11, 2012

I thought the home was beautiful and our room was fabulous. But the owner and helper were very loud downstairs in the morning. So, that was not very pleasant since we were very exhausted and wanted to sleep in. Not as comfortable and relaxing as other B&B we stayed.

Great rooms, breakfasts and Innkeeper

Elaine was the perfect host, so friendly & thoughtful. My sister-in-law and I spent two nights at 909 Lincoln. We were the only ones there so Elaine had breakfast with us both mornings. We met Cricket and Frog. Very well behaved dogs. If I were going to Savannah again, I would look no farther than a call to Elaine

Amazing Value, Gorgeous Home, Wonderful Time

5 on June 19, 2012

I have stayed in several B&Bs in my lifetime and can honestly say this was the greatest experience of all of them! Elaine is the most hospitable host I've yet to meet, with great sincere warmth you don't see often, all the while balancing a good sense of guest privacy. She was extremely helpful with telling us some tips on what to see and where to go, her cooking is fabulous, her interior design sensibility is impeccable without wandering into pretentious territory (the decor and furniture is lovely, but you're not afraid to sit on it), and she is just generally a kind soul. The room and bathroom was just to die for, with a comfy chaise lounge at the bay window, huge bed, gorgeous antiques, large bathroom with a clawfoot tub and separate shower, and a sweet little balcony off the bathroom. The home is located on a quiet, lovely, unpresuming little street right next to the heart of the city, with lots of trees and adorable homes surrounding it. On the balcony, we were able to relax with a couple glasses of wine as we watched all the bike riders pass by us. The location is perfect for the couple of avid cyclists that we are, as we could ride anywhere with great ease. My boyfriend and I had an incredibly romantic time at the Inn at 909. It truly did feel as if we were staying with family, that's how welcome and at home we felt. It is everything that we appreciate about staying at a B&B and, mark my words, we will be back! - Jenny & Harley

Affordable elegance

Elaine made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived in Savannah, with a personal call when we arrived at the airport to say hello and ensure our flight made it safely and on time. She brought her dogs Frog and Cricket to greet us and give us a tour of the house. Everything was spotless and richly decorated, with light classical music playing in the living room. She had a map ready for our walk into town with selected tips on where to grab a late lunch in downtown Savannah. We arranged a good time for breakfast the next day, and she showed us the bar area where she provides afternoon wine for her guests. We were two single ladies on a girl's weekend and stayed in a room with two double beds, AC, and a ceiling fan, where we often took a siesta to escape the 90 degree heat in the afternoons, watching movies from Elaine's own collection in our room. We spent a lovely three nights. Breakfast was fantastic every morning, from sweet berry crepes to savory eggs, sausage and homemade biscuits. Elaine's other guests were delightful as well, and we enjoyed our company and morning conversations with other travelers as much as the food! Elaine does everything from national security to pedicures, from recommendations on restaurants to avoid to the best thrift stores in town. She is a well-informed resource for tourists, an accomplished cook, and a thoughtful hostess. I highly recommend the Inn at 909 Lincoln!

Wonderful week at the 909

4.6 on April 29, 2012

The 909 was beautiful and extremely comfortable. Elaine is a terrific host and cooks like a gourmet chef. Great breakfasts. Not just bacon and eggs, but truly gourmet meals. The King Room was incredibly comfortable. We both slept like babies. the tall four poster king bed even had the obligatory step stool to be able to get up into the bed. Our room was beautifully furnished and quite roomy. Elaine was the consummate host as she helped us carry out luggage to our room, made reservations for meals in downtown Savannah and was just a bundle of information about Savannah and its' history. She even called me on my cell phone at 5:30 to remind me that we had 6:30 reservations at a restaurant on the river. Our second floor front porch, complete with wicker furniture and ceiling fan was quite comfortable and an excellent place to unwind after a full day of sightseeing. Elaine even draws great maps on how to get to places beyond the confines of Savannah. The 909 has quite a world following as our fellow guests were from California, Union of South Africa, and even Columbia South America. Conversation was lively but extremely civil. Southern hospitality rubbed off on everyone. And then there were two special friends: Frog and Crickett. They were Elaine's puppies. Friendly, well mannered and well-suited to be a lap dog, if you appreciate an 80 pound lap dog. As dog people, we loved them. My only low mark was the price. But, then again, everything in Savannah is priced higher than everywhere else we have traveled. But, we'd do it again. We're thinking about the Christmas season.
