Savannah, dressed up! That’s Ballastone Inn.  Just when you thought Savannah would be a nice Old South destination, the well-placed Ballastone Inn — Savannah’s first luxurious mansion B&B –  makes your visit even better.

Historic Savannah gardens, homes, music, art, and celebrated people are only a few of the reasons to visit Savannah in springtime. Here we share our choices for Savannah’s best happenings during a spring vacation in 2012 — March, April, May and June.  Our concierges will have more wonderful tips for you.

March 10-16: Girl Scouts Week at the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace.

March 15:  Before St. Patrick’s day enjoy Carrigbyrne Pike and Choir Group from County Wexford, Ireland at St. John’s Cathedral.

March 22 – April 7:  The Savannah Music Festival is Georgia’s largest festival. Yet, the historic small venues exude an air of intimacy during the 17-day smorgasbord of music, a world-class feast — day and night — for music lovers.

March 22 – 25: During the 77th Annual Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens, enjoy the privacy of the Inn’s secret garden. Ballastone Inn is beautifully flanked by hidden gardens — the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace garden and our Inn’s freshly manicured garden courtyard.

March 23: For his new Spring Exhibition artist Ray Ellis is in his Savannah gallery that overlooks Ellis Square in the Savannah City Market district.

April 21: “A Night of Opera” is presented by the Savannah Philharmonic in the magnificently restored Lucas Theatre, renown among the historic, grand theaters in America’s Old South.

May 1-7: Tall Ships Challenge anchors on the Savannah riverfront.

May 4 – 6: Girl Scouts alumnae return to the city where Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low founded the organization in 1912. Stay next door to the Mrs. Low’s birthplace during “Come Right Over: 100 Years of Girl Scouting, Sojourn in Savannah Reunion IV.

May 5: Annual Savannah Scottish Games. We recommend that you plan an extended Savannah weekend to see the showing of the colors at Independent Presbyterian Church. It’s when Scottish heritage shows its dress regalia and pageantry during Sunday worship services.  The church is just across Bull Street from Ballastone Inn in the Savannah historic district.

May 13: Mother’s Day.  Mothers receive beautiful roses in room, a special gift from Ballastone Inn.  A special treat is the Inn’s exquisite Southern-style high tea, everyday but made more special during our annual Mother’s Day celebration.

May 28: Flags are flying proudly at Ballastone Inn during Memorial Day weekend.  Stay three days, and your third day is at 50%.

June 14: In the spirit of the Old South, buntings and flags beautifully wave the week of Flag Day at our luxury Savannah B&B inn.

June 17: Fathers, let us know your favorite beer and we’ll have a chilled supply here, waiting as our gift during your Father’s Day stay at Ballastone Inn.  Uniquely, the Inn’s private bar (exclusive to the inn’s guests) tops the list of favorite spots at this luxurious B&B in Savannah’s historic district.

Escape to Savannah! Stay at our visitor-savvy, comfortable Italianate mansion (ca. 1838) overlooking beautiful Oglethorpe Avenue.  Discover the rare ambiance — the perfect mix of art and life — during your Savannah travels here.
