My companion and I wanted a nice B & B for a one-night stay before he began a cross-country trek on the American Discovery Trail that begins (or ends as the case may be) in Lewes DE. The Savannah Inn was a great choice. The month of March is off-season for Lewes, so only one other room was occupied.
The Inn has been completely remodeled and common areas feel spacious yet comfortable. The Inn's location is easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, an historical site or two and the ocean.
We chose the Zen Garden room. It is smallish yet nicely decorated. The slanted ceiling proved a little awkward in that my partner is 6'5" and had to lean to one side (or felt he had to) to not bump his head.
This room also has skylights overhead. We attempted to lower the shade on one and a small part fell out. We were not able to raise the shade or move it at all after that. We did not try to adjust the others...best left alone!
Buffet breakfast, served at 9, and was very good. Coffee, tea and other beverages were available earlier. Kelsie, who checked us in the previous day, also prepared breakfast and kept our coffee cups filled. I believe she was handling things on her own, and very capably so. We never felt rushed, and she paused to chat before the other occupants arrived for breakfast.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at the Savannah Inn. It was a perfect choice for our last night together for several weeks!
