A Look Inside a Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn

Cozy breakfast room Olde Savannah Inn on Gaston Street Savannah GABy Cathy Rodgers
A friend of mine virtually introduced me to a local innkeeper who runs a Savannah Bed & Breakfast on beautiful Gaston Street, so I could not wait to get by to meet her in person. Gardens always motivate me and peeking behind a secret pathway to view cozy sitting areas and new plants got me there quick.

Kathleen Dupois is the proprietor of the Olde Savannah Inn, one of the finest bed and breakfast establishments I’ve ever stepped into. I was truly amazed to find not only beautiful antiques, but amazing chandeliers and French decor which compliments the mansion without overdoing it.

My favorite spot is the fresh and bright breakfast room which allows visitors to look out to the gardens. Can you believe I forgot my camera? I “borrowed” this photo of the breakfast room from the net, and can tell you the room does look like this! It’s amazing and Southern Living magazine really needs to come and see! Then I found out what Kathleen serves at her breakfast celebrations. Who else has a candlelight breakfast and serves Creme Brûlée in the morning??

Kathleen took me upstairs to the honeymoon suite and my jaw nearly dropped! Steps away from the four post bed, marble floors take you to a large jacuzzi tub, two pedestal sinks and his and hers claw foot tubs.

This is where we will be sending our out of town guests and inquiring visitors. Did I mention the 800 count sheets? True elegance and luxury.

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.

Valentine's Day at The Inn

kathleen Dupuis - Thursday, February 14, 2013

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.

Step back in time at the Colonial Faire and Muster on the weekend of February 9-10th.  This event is FREE  to the public.  It will be held on the historic Wormsloe Plantation.  Actors and vendors recreate colonial Savannah, with demonstrations of the old blacksmith shop, firing muskets, and cooking over a fire.

 

The festival will include the Official Georgia Day Parade on February 12th, 2013 at 10:30 am.  The parade begins at Forsyth Park, just steps from The Olde Savannah Inn.  The parade route includes a march down the historic Bull Street and will ultimately wind up at City Hall. 

 

The festivities continue with Super Museum Sunday from noon until 4 pm on Sunday February 13, 2013.  Over 40 organizations, including the city's history, art and cultural museums, have agreed to take part in the History Festival.  Admission to the participating locations for this event is FREE.

 

What better place to stay for the Georgia History Festival that at one of Savannah's  Historical Inns? The Olde Savannah Inn, located in the South Historic District, is the perfect place to call home while you enjoy the festivities..  The Inn was built in 1877, and was restored in 2005.  This Award Winning Bed and Breakfast offers beautiful, historic architecture combined with all the comforts of our modern day world. Staying at the Inn allows you to start the day with our famous gourmet breakfast, then proceed to enjoy the festivities knowing that you will be welcomed back to the lap of luxury at the end of the day.
