Breakfast in the Front Parlor at Historic Ballastone Inn

Savannah brings people back for another visit. Business or maybe a destination wedding could be what brings you to The Hostess City of the South for the first time, but you’ll be back, probably more than once – back for the romance, back for the elegance, back for the chance to step back through centuries.

What do Ballastone Inn’s repeat visitors do, after they’ve done all the “obvious” things? House museums that capture the way people lived in bygone centuries? Check. Art galleries showcasing period treasures and today’s rising stars? Check. Fine dining? Check. Shopping for everything from hand-forged iron oyster knives to antique furnishings to pralines to high fashion? Check. Romantic horse-drawn carriage ride, soaking up jazz in an intimate nightspot, beach-bumming it on Tybee Island? Check, check, check.

Don’t worry! While Savannah is historic and seems timeless, it is also constantly evolving. Ballastone Inn’s concierges know there’s always something new embedded in the old – a rooftop bar at a trendy hotel, a chef showcasing a new international cuisine, new treasures to add to Savannah’s existing stock, like the SCAD Museum of Art that opened in the fall of 2011. Ballastone manager Melissa Williams and the thoughtful concierge staff at our romantic bed-and-breakfast inn can steer you to whatever you are looking for, whether it is the latest addition to Savannah’s charms or a deeper look at the imagery of Victorian cemetery statuary.

Of Savannah attractions, Melissa recommends, “See downtown Savannah through the eyes of a true historian, Earl Moore. He is also called ‘Earl of Chatham’. We also recommend touring our Low Country area, which offers a different flavor of Savannah. From Ballastone Inn, the personal driving tour is hosted by Kathy Moore.”

But top-of-class concierges at the AAA 4-Diamond Ballastone Inn in Savannah also teach the inn’s returning visitors, and even the first-time bed and breakfast guests, a valuable lesson about leisure in America’s most beautiful city. While there is plenty to do, you can also just be. Linger over your gourmet breakfast in our private courtyard. Lean on a lamppost on River Street and watch world commerce churn up and down the Savannah River. Hold down a park bench and watch the Spanish moss sway in the live oaks. Stroll on the beach as the moon rises out of the Atlantic Ocean. Those exquisite moments of peace are among Savannah’s greatest attractions.
