Well, so happy to have you back! We certainly try to make it "holiday" around here, waiting on our gingerbread village to arrive any day now, so I guess you will have to come back. Happy Holidays to you and so happy you left relaxed and pampered. jennifer the entire staff

This is not my first review of the Ballastone Inn and probably won’t be my last. Almost fifteen years ago, I chose the Inn because of its location within the Historic District, close to the river, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle. As a single traveler, I was looking

Visited the Ballastone Inn for High Tea (put on everyday at 4pm) and had a lovely time. Great tea selection, delightful treats and the most beautiful holiday decor I have ever seen! Can't wait to stay for a few nights, it is simply a stunning historic Inn in Savannah.

Incredible. Like staying in an Inn a century ago except with all the up-to-date features. The room was classically appointed with antique furniture and a large sleigh bed. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially the seated breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs, grits, b

Are visitors welcome to reserve for high tea, or is this just for the guests?
Thank you for your inquiry. Due to high occupancy during the spring we cannot offer high tea to outside guests. I would, however, recommend the Gryphon Tea Room, which is located just a few blocks from us on Bull Street.

Hi. I would like to know if you have a room with 2 double/queen beds. I don't see this as an option on the website.
The Savannah Room has two extra-long twin beds, but other than that I think all of the other rooms either have one queen or one king in them. That being said, ALL of the rooms are absolutely gorgeous and the entire inn is a wonderfully friendly, cozy, beautiful place - perfectly located in the heart of the historic district.

How is parking? Do you get a ticket for free parking when arriving? And is the street congested, and spaces easy to find and park?
We flew in and did not have a car, but parking was not a problem. There was a small lot in the back of the Inn, and there was parking available on the street in front.

Interested in the Sorghum Cane Room ... where is it located in the inn .. my husband is a light sleeper and will need a room that is less noisy than others ... if this room is noisy ... any suggestions
Our room was on the main floor across from the inn office. We were not bothered by any noise. The room was convenient to the back stairs leading to the few parking spaces which are available on a first come first serve basis. Since we had several pieces of luggage, this was quite helpful. We ate at Alligator Soul, an easy walk from the Inn and enjoyed it very much.

Any opinions on Hannah versus Low Country for myself and my husband? We're newlyweds looking for a quiet romantic room with perhaps a pretty view and natural light! Thank you!
Hi We stayed in Hannah and the room is charming and spacious. As it is on the lower ground floor and the windows face the small but pretty courtyard there is not much natural light and we did have the lamps on most of the time. It is across the corridor from the kitchen, however they are very quiet and we didn't notice it or any noise. We haven't stayed in the Low Country but would recommend Hannah to anyone who wanted a romantic break. Good Luck.

"I love Rhett's Retreat, but all of the rooms are very different, with charms of their own, each and every one!"
"I would recommend rooms above the main floor and towards the rear of the Inn as one might find them quieter"
"Ask for a Oglethorpe Avenue view."
"try the garden rooms"
"Our room did not have as firm a mattress as we like. If you need the same, advise when booking a visit."
$209 - $334 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
