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
We have stayed at The Inn several times. There have been changes for example the external deck area for breakfast and now the excellent buffet style breakfast. The staff are very good and helpful, we have got to know some of them over the years.
Definitely recommend for a very personal and different stay in Savannah.
This was our 5th stay at Savannah B&B Inn and all of the other times were amazing with a personalized gourmet breakfast and quiet, quaint place with lots of extras. Our most recent visit was very disappointing. Under new management, the breakfast was a bread/fruit casserole every day for 5 days, along with assorted sides. All of the extras are gone including the frequent customer discount. We stayed a week & each morning around 6am it sounded like a stampeed above us. Overall it was a disappointing visit.
Front staff was great. Breakfast was decent. Awesome bacon. Wish they offered biscuits and gravy.
View of square was peaceful. Could walk everywhere. Parking is difficult. Find a place to park and never move it.
Weather was a nice break over Florida. Loved the back patio behind the kitchen.
Too much to see in one visit. Will absolutely return.
