The Amethyst Inn is a beautiful old Victorian home set in the historic district of old Savannah. Stepping into the foyer immediately takes you back a century to a quieter, more genteel time. The innkeepers, Rocky (a former military helicopter pilot) and his charming wife Jane, are absolutely disarming with their charm and Southern warmth. Rocky has maintained the inn perfectly -- it's spotless, with generous room sizes and amenities. Jane is lovely and welcoming, and she is a great cook! Emphasize the breakfast at this B&B -- delicious quiches, pastries, pancakes, sausages, and of course, grits. Breakfast is communal in a beautiful formal dining room. Rocky and Jane give it their all, and speaking with them for a half hour made my feel that they were lifelong friends. They are also a tremendous source of information for visiting this fascinating, historical town -- whether you want to take a trolley ride all around the historic district, imagine yourself in the atmosphere of old Savannah in a nighttime tour of the city's haunted sites, stop by the Lady and Sons, or just relax over a cocktail at waterfront Rocks atop the Bohemian hotel, R & J will get you there with ease and with all the information you need. We had visited Savannah once before, and found the city somewhat tired and uninteresting. Thanks to Rocky and Jane, we not only felt kinship with the city, but discovered how charming, interesting, and fun it can be. Make sure Savannah is on your bucket list, and when you visit, let Jane and Rocky make you feel like you're visiting family, in their beautiful Amethyst Inn.
