Innkeeper Jennifer Salandi insists everything be just so at the elegant Ballastone Inn in Savannah, Georgia. When guests take a break from Savannah’s charms to enjoy the complimentary high tea the Ballastone provides its guests, Jennifer demands their experience be perfect. A proper afternoon tea requires Devonshire cream and petite scones, she says. She wants chocolate-covered strawberries on the inn’s Savannah tea table often, and sometimes they’re a romantic little amenity in a guest’s room.
“The leaves have to be beautifully in place, but none of the chocolate can get on the leaves,” she insists. Even the perfectly dipped strawberry isn’t enough. A creative touch decorates the berries in white chocolate – a swirl pattern, perhaps. Ballastone’s lighthearted luxury is showcased when the strawberry “artist” outfits the berry with a deftly drawn “tuxedo,” as in the elopement weddings at Ballastone!
To get the perfect strawberries every time, Jennifer serves as chief school marm at her own “Strawberry School.” Every employee, not just the chef, knows how to make the confections to Jennifer’s exacting standards. That way, there’s no risk of the charming details being overlooked – whether for a last minute romantic getaway or a social tea party.
Luxury and elegance? Yes. Snootiness? No. Jennifer’s luxury-meets-practical approach buoys this coveted lodging in Savannah’s Landmark Historic District far beyond any stereotype. This means you’ll never miss out on the details – like beautifully crafted strawberries – that add up to Savannah’s finest bed-and-breakfast experience.Ballastone Inn 14 East Oglethorpe Avenue, Savannah, GA USA 31401 (912) 236-1484 | (800) 822-4553 | Fax (912) 236-4626 firstname.lastname@example.org | www.ballastone.com
