My childhood friend and I decided to go to Savannah and we weren't sure if we wanted a chain hotel or a B&B. While scouting around for B&B's I was fortunate to speak with Jane, one of the owners of the Inn, on the phone. It turns out we were both from NY state, and she also lived in NJ, as I do now.
I clicked with her on the phone and then made a reservation for 4 nights. We were trying to get the Ivy suite for all 4 nights but it turned out that it was booked for the first night so she offered to give each of us our own separate rooms which were next to each other. Jane also offered to make any restaurant reservations for us after suggesting a few restaurants that were highly recommended by their previous guests.
I was checked into the Inn by Chemise, who knows all about the Inn and the area and then met Jane, and her husband, Rocky later.
They are some of the nicest people that you will ever meet. They went above and beyond to make you feel welcome. I also enjoyed dining with the other guests each morning to an amazing homemade, freshly cooked breakfast.
I feel like I have known Jane and Rocky forever. I hung out with them in their kitchen and chatted and they always had some great stories to tell. They are both multi talented and truly enjoy owning the Inn while raising their daughter. Be sure to ask about their "love" story.
I have only been home for a couple of days but miss them already. Jane asked me to let her know that I got home safe, and we have been in contact ever since.
If you don't want to hang out and talk they are also respectful of your feelings and just offer any information they can provide to make sure that you enjoy your stay in Savannah.
The Inn is a beautiful restored (by Rocky and Jane) Victorian with some interesting history. I would go back in a heartbeat and would love to retire there after the kids are all in college.
I HIGHLY recommend the Inn and getting to know this wonderful family.
