Conveniently located on Gordon Row, in the heart of the historic district just one block from Forsyth Park, the Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn takes guests a few steps back in time, but with all modern-day conveniences, such as flat-screen TVs, free WiFi and air conditioning. All five houses that make up this classic Southern sleep were constructed in the early 1850s and are a prime example of Federal style architecture. The guestrooms vary by size and decor, but expect exposed brick, walls in slate blue, rosemary and peach, four-poster beds, decorative fireplaces, hardwood floors covered with oriental area rugs and wood beam ceilings. Start each day with a bountiful homemade Southern breakfast (buttermilk biscuits, slow-cooked stone-ground grits, blueberry pancakes and French toast with fresh blackberry syrup and a side of sausage) in the parlor at a family-style table, or enjoy your meal outside on the patio overlooking the gardens. Afterward, curl up with a good book in the courtyard or head out and explore the city — but return for afternoon tea from 4 to 6 p.m. or nightly milk and freshly baked cookies (around 8 p.m.) in the parlor.
In the Area
Located on the border between Georgia and South Carolina, this quaint city is known for its 24 squares, the charming landscaped parks and plazas that occur every few blocks in the historic district. The most famous are Forsyth Park, known for its picturesque willow trees and ample suntanning space, and Chippewa Square, which appeared in the opening scene of Forrest Gump. Start your day with a cold-brew coffee from the Coffee Fox, then get the lay of the land on a bike tour of the historic district from Savannah Bike Tours; $25 will get you a two-hour tour, bike, helmet and bottle of water. Afterward, nosh on a healthy lunch at Starland Café, or get your fill of African-inspired sandwiches at cult favorite sandwich shop Zunzi’s. Have a post-lunch ice cream at Leopold’s or a craft beer at Savannah’s only brewpub, Moon River Brewery; get a tasting flight and sit outdoors in the beer garden if the weather is mild. For dinner locals love the Olde Pink House, which serves Southern fare in an 18th-century mansion on Reynolds Square. If you’d rather test your skills in the kitchen try a cooking class at the prestigious 700 Drayton, and end the evening with a show at the Historic Savannah Theatre (known to locals as “Broadway on Bull Street”), which dates back to 1818.
How to Get There
I have stayed here twice and both times did not disappoint. This place is full of wonderful staff & is kept very clean. The rooms and their themes are a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend that more people stay here!
I love Savannah B&B. Great place for solo, family or a business stay. They always have lean rooms each are very authentic & have their own charm. The location is perfect, not to far from river street and right between two beautiful parks. The staff is always kind and professional. My favorite part of my stay at Savannah B&B is the breakfast!
I had never stayed at a B&B before, but it was a great experience, different choices each day for breakfast, GREAT food, and you ate by yourself and or with your companion, it was not a group setting, that I had heard of for most B&B. Everything we did was in walking distance. You chose each day what services you needed from housekeeping, which we liked. Overall a great experience, I definitely would chose to stay here again.
We love coming here when we explore Savannah. Whether on business or a romantic getaway the Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn is a gem.
The rooms are all immaculate and just as/more important is that each one has a different theme and lends itself to having a truly fantastic visit.
The breakfast in the morning has great options. From a Chef's Special to my favorite of eggs over medium with rye toast and home-fries. Also, their homemade jams are very tasty!
They offer a parking pass, which beats feeding the meter.
In the afternoon they offer ice beverages and snacks. And just before bed time check out the homemade cookies.
Whether you're visiting Savannah for business or pleasure, The Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn will make your stay a most enjoyable one.
Location is great close to everything.
Friendly helpful staff.
Tight stairway. Not good for obese people.
Needs great improvement as far cleanliness.
