Romantics and history buffs will thrill at the old-fashioned Southern charm that permeates every aspect of the inn, from the cozy rooms named for famous figures from Savannah’s rich history, to the décor, all crystal chandeliers and 19th century antiques. The free gourmet treats are a highlight: hearty home-made breakfasts, dainty evening appetizers served with wine, and decadent desserts served in the parlor–all great occasions to mingle with fellow guests.
In the Area
Experience one of America’s oldest and most picturesque cities the old-fashioned way–via trolley car, visiting the waterfront and the historic squares, with their sun-dappled pathways, magnolia trees and Gothic charm. See life through the prism of the Civil Rights movement at the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum, then visit Wormsloe Historic Site, a former plantation reached via an avenue flanked with live oaks and Spanish moss.
How to Get There
We love the over the top hospitality here, the period decor, fresh flowers, very inviting and kind staff who truly do wish to please and accommodate. On Valentines Day, they had chocolates , a special dessert in our room, on St Patrick’s Day; a mini pot of gold filled w beads to wear n chocolates along w a personalized card. Breakfastt choices each evening for the next day and yummy, along w the appetizers w wine offered n each evening. Late night , port and dessert offered as well. TurnDown w cookies on your pillow. Rooms are spacious, beds very comfortable, and always love the private balcony/ and / or veranda; depending on your room. There was also a pianist at evening cocktail time and a storyteller on another evening. We must add, that the way the tv in our room was placed inside the armoire cupboard, that two people could not ever view the entire screen, which was very disappointing. We would also love to have a mini fridge and a small coffee maker in the rooms. This is a very high end place with high prices, so that was a let down. (Particularly, with a tv which could not be visualized......poor design). Staff is always ready to get you anything you want, so that was wonderful. We
gave this a 4 star because of those things lacking, which didn’t measure up to the very high price of this property. To us, that would have made it PERFECT! Otherwise, we love Kehoe House.
Staying at the Kehoe House is pure pleasure. We just parked our car and walked everywhere else. The staff is beyond helpful and attentive to your every need. I will always stay here when I travel to Savannah.
The Kehoe House is a spectacular inn. Everything about it is perfect. Our room was so large and luxurious. The food was fantastic for breakfast. The evening wine and snacks was a great time to meet other guests. I particularly liked the historian who came and spoke on Saturday night. It was a treat to learn the history of the house. I have been to many inns around the country, but this was my favorite to date.
You know it's special and just looking at the outside and it gets better as you enter the doors. Before we arrived, the staff called to ask if we needed anything (reservations, special accommodations). Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and shown around the common areas. Throughout our 3-nights stay all staff members were friendly and always went out of their way to talk with us and gave full attention to our needs and other guests. The attention too all our needs and the details of the Inn were first rate. We extended our stay by one night and changed rooms. This gave us a chance to see the differences in setup, but in both cases our rooms were spacious, very clean and beautifully decorated. There were a few too many decorative and bed pillows, and limited spots to store them but it's better to have more than too few. The toilet in the Pierpont room was too tall for our comfort but would be great for those needing ADA needs. The breakfast was varied each morning and was always rich and delicious. The dining area is a social gathering spot and a great location in the evening to meet other guests. We had a blast. If you are looking for a memorable experience this is a place to do it. The location is excellent for walking through the historic parks, squares and to a lot of clubs and restaurants. Dedicated guest parking is only one block from the B & B, and modest at $20 per night, compared to many other tourist destinations.
My wife and I went to Savannah to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We stayed for three nights at the Kehoe House. This 1892 Renaissance Revival Mansion is extraordinary. The rooms, staff, service, and food is top notch! It’s centrally located and has its own parking lot a few steps away. Convenient for walking to restaurants, the river, shops, attractions, and the many city squares.
The staff at Kehoe House wrote the book on making guests feel special. The Guest Services person that assisted me in making the reservations was so helpful in picking out the right room for making my wife’s Birthday special.
Eduardo, who checked us in, toured us around the Mansion, and showed us to our room. He repeatedly, asked us if we needed any beverages or snacks after our flight to Savannah. He treated us like family members.
I had the birthday present for my wife shipped to the hotel so that the package would be in our room upon arrival. Faith Kuhn, another superstar staff member intercepted the package, took it out of the shipping box, and beautifully wrapped the present for me. When we entered our room the gorgeously wrapped Birthday Present was the center piece on the bed! Yes, it brought my wife to tears!
My wife is a long distance runner training for an upcoming ultra-marathon of 50K (31 miles). Guest Services Member Melody, told us about several running routes on where to get her long run done. She also gave us names of numerous restaurants and attractions to see along our many walks through the city.
The room we stayed in had an outside balcony. This allowed us to have breakfast delivered to our room and we ate outside on our balcony. The views from our room were outstanding. What a way to start the day!! The staff member that delivered our breakfast always had time for a small chat about our stay. One morning I had shrimp and grits. The flavor was fantastic. I mentioned that I would like to get their recipe. Faith says no problem and emails me Chef Peter’s recipe!!
In the late afternoon the Kehoe House serves Wine and appetizers. There were musicians each afternoon playing the piano or a guitar. Just a great way to relax from a busy afternoon.
Each night there is coffee, homemade desserts (which were better than any restaurant desert we had) and Port.
The Kehoe House has turn down service. Oh, yes, there were homemade cookies on the bed!
The first day we stayed at the Kehoe House we were standing across the street from the hotel in Columbia Square taking a few pictures. A gentleman exits the hotel and walks across the street to greet us. He introduces himself to us and welcomes us to Savannah and the Kehoe House. Turns out he’s Hugh Osburne, Innkeeper. He claims we got outside before he had an opportunity to say hello and welcome. Now what other hotel does the Innkeeper leave the building to track down a guest just to give you a “Welcome”?
The Kehoe House along with its staff is a place you need to experience when staying in Savannah!
