“The best of men have ever loved repose.” ~ James Thomson
Picture yourself enjoying a romantic stay in Savannah, whether for a quick trip or long weekend. You’ve spent a fascinating day in the Historic District, maybe capping the evening off with a moonlit horse-drawn carriage ride. It’s been a great day, but it’s time to make your way back to your exclusive lodging at the Ballastone Inn mansion (circa 1838).
Earlier you would have enjoyed our historic bed-and-breakfast inn’s fresh scones with Devonshire cream at afternoon tea, sipped fine wine before dinner, and lingered in the charm of the drawing rooms and private garden. But at the close of day you find the bar has been raised again in your beautifully appointed room. The attentive staff has turned down your bed, dimmed the lighting and left a Trafalgar Square chocolate treat, handmade by C. Kay Cummings Candies, to complete the day’s experience.
When you climb into the cloud-comfort of the Ballastone’s bed, you’ll settle into triple-sheeted luxury, with pristine sheets encasing the down-filled comforter. And if you are lucky enough to have arrived on the rare winter evening when it feels actually wintry in Savannah, you’ll enjoy the ambiance and chill-chasing glow of the hand crafted, gas coal fireplace from Grate Fires. The 19th Century style fireplaces are now installed in most of our rooms.
You’ll leave Savannah with many wonderful memories, including the luxurious comfort of the “welcome home to Savannah” message conveyed by our nightly turndown service. It’s an extraordinary amenity at Ballastone Inn where nothing is ordinary.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
