Romance and writers await visitors to Savannah

kathleen Dupuis - Sunday, February 17, 2013

This article by Kay Mathews caught my eye.  This article is well written, combines the history of Savannah with present events in Savannah, and has beautiful images of Savannah.  Anyone contemplating a visit, or planning a romantic get away would do well to read it.  We especially agree with the Southern Living Magazine list which includes Savannah as one of the top "7 Sinfully Romantic Escapes".  The article goes on to say :

 

Savannah - Southern Living magazine lists the City of Savannah as one of "7 Sinfully Romantic Southern Escapes," and the Savannah Book Festival kicks-off on Valentine's Day.
When searching for a special romantic destination for you and your sweetheart, Southern Living magazine says "look to Savannah, Georgia."
"Cozy inns and local-food restaurants flourish around the tree-shaded historic district," states Southern Living.
Outside the inns, and a nice way spend time with your sweetheart and walk-off the scrumptious calories associated with local restaurants, are the squares located in the Historic District of downtown Savannah.

The Olde Savannah Inn, Savannah's award winning bed and breakfast, is the perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day.  The luxurious accommodations, romantic hidden courtyards, and exquisite cuisine, all work together to create the perfect atmosphere for a romantic getaway.    

 

We believe there is no better way to tell you about our Inn than through the comments left by our wonderful guests. Their comments have included:

 

  "5 of 5 starsThe Olde Savannah Inn has something that makes it stand out. Character. It is displayed throughout the house, on every wall, on the well kept floors, and in the oh-so-comfortable bedrooms with elegant baths. You will be transported back to a nostalgic era with soft music, great laughs and delicious food and coffee"  Reviewed January 31, 2013

 

". Not only is the Inn Stunning and Spectacular but the Inn Keeper Kathleen took care of all our needs. We chose the Versailles Court for a (4) Four night Ultra Romantic Honeymoon Getaway. This room is so romantic. The huge Jacuzzi tub for two, claw foot tubs and the beautiful King sized bed made with the finest linens....The food was deliciously outrageous and the table was set as if you were a King and Queen. While you were dining there was romantic music in the air. Her personality is warm and inviting. Her Inn is all about pampering you personally. We fell in love with Savannah.... We will be visiting Savannah again and only staying at the Old Savannah Inn. Thank you Kathleen....... till we meet again." Reviewed January 14, 2013

 

"First class in everything:
The decor, drop dead gorgeous antiques, gilt mirrors, crystal chandeliers and more.
The breakfasts and additional treats throughout the day, generous gourmet delights! e.g. Eggs Benedict, stuffed French crepes, Belgian waffles, quiche lorain, cheesy grits, scones, cookies, banana bread, fresh fruit cups, garnishes of berries and giant dollops of whipped cream.
All provided for us with special care to our vegetarian diet. (Platters of crispy bacon and other breakfast meats appeared at others' tables. )
The furnishings from hand-ironed linens to sumptuous robes, gloriously indulgent luxury.
You have got to go here and experience this for yourself.
Call Kathleen. She's a one-woman dynamo who truly can do it all."  Stayed in December - Reviewed January 9,2013.

5 Best Places to See While in Savannah

kathleen Dupuis - Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Wondering what the best places are to visit while you are in Savannah?  Here are the top five places!

 

Forsyth Park

Forsyth Park is the largest and one of the most beautiful parks in Savannah.  The Olde Savannah Inn is only steps away from this magnificent wonder. Forsyth Park was originally created in the 1840's, named for Georgia governor John Forsyth, and covers 30 acres, equip with a cafe, large field area for sports, Confederate memorials, a place for events such as the Savannah Jazz Festival, and a French inspired fountain that is a must-see in Savannah. 

 

Tybee Island

Tybee Island is located just a few miles from Savannah, with miles of beaches, great seafood restaurants, and a lighthouse built in 1773!  The Tybee museum chronicles Tybee's 400 history with relics and historical items. Make sure to visit the Pier and Pavilion for fishing, specials events, and a gorgeous view of the ocean!

 

Historic River Street

Take a stroll down Savannah's River Street and be transported back into time with cobblestone roads, trolleys, and festivals.  Enjoy some of the best of what Savannah's restaurants have to offer, sip down a refreshing adult-slushy while you walk, and stop by the many famous shops and candy stores.  The river is nothing short of amazing and is famously died green for the St. Patrick's Day celebration!

 

Bonventure Cemetery

This is not to be missed!  Huge, centuries old Magnolia trees, gothic statues, and hundreds of years of history lie in this cemetery.  Once known for it's famous statue that graced the cover of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, this 100-acre cemetery is now home to Holocaust memorials and colonial legends.  

 

The Olde Savannah Inn

Yes, that's us!   But we are truthfully a great historic sight to see in Savannah! Located on historic Gaston Street, this luxurious Savannah Bed and Breakfast has been restored to its original charm with grand chandeliers, French antiques, wrought iron gates, and a hidden garden.  This is a true hidden gem in Savannah and is one of a kind.  The Olde Savannah Inn is only a short walk from all of the other places mentioned above (Tybee is driving distance).

 

We hope this guide will help you have the best possible time while you are visiting Savannah!

See you soon!
