|Patriarch of historic Savannah bed and breakfast inns, The Ballastone Inn enjoys the much-envied location in the walking hub of beautiful historic Savannah ... only three blocks away from the Savannah River.|
The Inn and its sixteen guest rooms and suites feature fine art, by-gone era elegant interiors, stately architecture, and luxurious comfort. The Inn's honored guests first arrive anticipating the refined surroundings, afternoon tea, and the city's best location. Guests return again and again, however, for the attentive and elegant home-away-from-home feeling.
The bed and breakfast Courtyard rooms are located on the first floor adjacent to the garden, which adds a special charm. Deluxe guestrooms are on the upper levels of the Inn. Elegant Superior rooms -- located on the third and fourth floors of the inn -- are accessible by a majestic Queen Anne staircase as well as an elevator. The Superior guestrooms have added features of fireplaces, views of the picturesque courtyard of Savannah and a whirlpool bath. The luxurious suites have direct views of the courtyard and each has a two-room bath with separate dressing area.
~Personal Services For Your Vacation Getaway~
Our highly attentive staff takes genuine pleasure in gracefully attending to every need of each guest. The Inn will provide complimentary clothes pressing and the Concierge will assist to coordinate all the best connections for your weekend or vacation getaway. The congenial staff will make arrangements or make recommendations for tours, shopping, restaurants ... or for bicycles, tennis equipment, facilities of a nearby health club, a much-needed massage, salon or spa appointments, off-shore vacation fishing or golf outings.
