Besides its historic charms, Savannah is also a cultural destination. The Savannah Music Festival (March 22-April 7, 2012), the Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens (March 22-25, 2012), the Savannah Film Festival (October 27-November 3, 2012)– these events bring the world to Savannah, and their patrons to the Ballastone Inn.
But Savannah also enjoys smaller scale cultural events, little jewels of performances that are scattered throughout our calendar, lagniappes – that is, unexpected and delightful discoveries – that surprise and enchant visitors and locals alike.One of those is this coming weekend, when the Savannah Concert Association presents Jens Elvekjaer, a striking young classical pianist from Copenhagen, in concert January 6, 2012 (7:00 p.m.) Elvekjaer’s Savannah performance is early in a month-long U.S. tour, and will take place in Wesley Monumental UMC, an historic downtown church known for its acoustics.
The concierge at the Ballastone Inn can help you organize this wonderful evening – the romance of Haydn and Chopin, performed by one of Europe’s finest young talents within walking distance of your luxurious accommodations. You might even meet some of Savannah’s own music followers at the Ballastone, opting to make a full night of their pleasant evening in our elegant setting.
The Ballastone Inn is for the traveler who considers hotels are for the workaday world. Even when traveling for professional reasons, our guests want something more – elegance, luxury and serenity, all without sacrificing service and convenience. We are Savannah’s most romantic bed-and-breakfast inn, and we are ready to be your private haven in America’s most romantic city.
