Amethyst Inn at Sarah's Garden Inn

402 EAST GASTON STREET , Savannah, 31401 USA (Show map)

Visit Website


The expansive kitchen is the favorite family-style gathering spot at this colorful Victorian "Painted Lady" in Savannah! Jovial owner-innkeepers at the 7-room historic inn entertain as family-style foodies. Highlights are veranda porches, open parlors with fireplaces for group gatherings or romance gardens, swimming pool, kitchenette + pet-friendly accommodations. Nestled "North of Gaston" in the Landmark Savannah Historic District, the romantic inn is very near to entertainment and wedding venues -- Forsyth Park (downtown Savannah's central park) and Whitfield Square's popular white gazebo. Rich in architectural details, the Victorian home (circa 1888) was built for Tomlinson Fort Johnson, manager of the "Savannah Theatre" on Chippewa Square, today America's oldest theatre.

Wonderful place to stay in savannah

4.6 on October 13, 2014

We were extremely pleased with our stay . Hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. They helped get dinner res and reserved tours. They took special interest inour granddaughters. The rooms were nicely done with comfortable beds. The homemade breakfasts were original hot or cold dishes. Highly recommend!!

A Marvelous Stay!

My wife and I had an absolutely marvelous stay at Amethyst Inn. Rocky, Jane and Chemise are wonderful hosts. Their knowledge of the area is amazing. They were able to help us find places we wanted to explore and even provided maps. They gave us recommendations on where to eat (and where not to eat) and even made reservations for us one night. On the first night we decided to take a chance and eat at a restaurant that was not recommended and we now understand why. Needless to say we cherished their advice for the rest of the trip. The room was clean and well appointed. The food was delicious and it was so nice to be able to chat with Rocky and Jane while Jane was fixing breakfast. She even gave us a couple of recipes for us to try at home. We quickly became fast friends, talking for what seemed like hours on end. This is true southern charm! Some folks run their B&B like a business. Rocky and Jane run theirs like an extended family. What a wonderful concept. We look forward to coming back to Amethyst Inn and next time we hope to bring the rest of the family. Thanks for the memories, Jim & Carol.

A romantic little getaway tucked away on Gaston St

4.6 on June 04, 2011

My girlfriend and I stayed here while we were in town for a wedding. It was actually one of the last places with a room still available for the weekend we were there so we booked as fast as we could without reading up to much on it. We got really lucky. Jane and Rocky are extremely nice and accommodating and made the stay very comfortable. Breakfast was a very yummy casserole and there were snacks available anytime. If you don't mind staying a few blocks from the riverfront, the Amethyst Inn is a romantic and fun place. Highly recommended!

You will feel at home.

The owners and staff will make you feel like you are staying with family. Rocky, Jane and Chemise are wonderful. It will satisfy your expectations whether you are staying for your anniversary or just for the weekend. Great experience.

Entire family loved it

Our family was absolutely thrilled with our visit. Our daughter, (9) and son (13) can't stop talking about how much fun they had at the inn. We felt totally at home from the second we stepped into the front door. Jane and Rocky were gracious,attentive, and went out of their way to ensure that we totally enjoyed our Savannah experience. We look forward to our next visit. Ty and Diana Tomak

Outstanding, outstanding, outstanding. We stayed two nights, and loved every minute of it. Jane and Rocky were absolutely the best, and just talking with them we felt as if we had known them our entire lives. Very helpful, very friendly, very professional. More than just making us feel welcome, they made us feel special. We were on a tight budget this trip and took the smallest room, but were very happy with it. No complaints at all. Loved the old Victorian home with all its warmth and charm. The food was fabulous too. We enjoyed meeting their daughter and friend, who were also made us feel right at home. And we loved Nick-cole, their beautiful dog who really loves people and warmed right up to us. Most of all, Jane and Rocky are simply the best hosts there are, anywhere. We would recommend the Amethyst Inn to anyone, and we will DEFINITELY stay there again. Simply the best. Curt and Heather Baker Naples, Florida

Everything about our stay was over and above. The inn was beautiful and cozy. The food was delicious, and we can't say enough about how fabulous Rocky and Jane were as our hosts! We definitely hope to get back in the future. We highly recommend this experience! Maureen and George

Great Vacation

We were traveling from California - stopping at several states - I will tell you the Amethyst St. Inn was wonderful! Everything was great - the food Jake made was outstanding and Rocky and Sarah were just the cutest.

Dog Friendly

What a great find! We just got in our car and headed to Savannah. We called all around, but no one would take our dog - English bulldog. At the Amethyst Inn, Jane was so friendly and nice. She is a great host and a great cook! :)

Magical Holidays

The Inn is exquisite during the Holidays. The decorations and food make this Inn magical. Jane and Rocky are excellent host and the food is delicious. I wish I could have stayed longer.
