Discover the quiet charm and elegance of this intimate bed and breakfast located on one of the most scenic streets in the historic district. It was built for Tomlinson F. Johnson in 1888. At that time he was manager of the Savannah Theatre.
We have tried to preserve the history of the past and filled our home with a number of antiques to give you the feel of the days gone by. We have 12 fireplaces, several parlors and porches, and a beautiful bricked courtyard and garden. Just relax and let yourself be pampered.
Walk through our front doors and appreciate the beautiful 118-year-old mosaic tiled floor, which has been preserved along with the natural woodwork and elegant stairway. The unique floor pattern has been hand painted along the walls to show an appreciation for the talents of long ago. When we greet our guests here, we offer everything we can think of to ensure a wonderful stay.

Kitchen... This seems to be the most popular spot for the majority of our guests. Whether it is for an early cup of coffee or a little lingering after breakfast to inquire about activities for the day. But for most, it is a time to enjoy some refreshments and sample Jane's fares after a busy day of sightseeing... or wrap up the entire day with a friendly chat and a sample of the homemade cookies being prepared for the next arrival of guests.
Parlor... Our parlor is always open to our guests, just sit and relax or enjoy some of our homemade liqueurs as you get acquainted with one another during our afternoon cocktail hour.
The Courtyard at Sarah's Garden... Here is where you can feel totally at home. Rock away and enjoy any part of the day, or just lounge by the pool in the privacy of the back courtyard.
