I fell in love with my room at the Zeigler House (Auvergne) as I was looking for accommodation in Savannah, and it turned out to be even better for real. Hardwood floors, great light through 4 large windows, and one of the best beds I ever slept in. It was a large room and bathroom, very clean and with fluffy towels and bed sheets. If that wasn't enough, the small fridge was fully stocked with water, your indicated juice preferences, bread and milk to set you up for breakfast, along with fresh fruit.
That alone would grant the 5 stars, but Jackie was a really pleasant host, with great tips for sightseeing and dining, and a very skilled cook on her own, as the pastries she continuously supplies (in your room or in the living area) is to die for. There is free coffee, tea and biscuits in the living room at all times. Let's not mention the wine and canapes at 5...I just wish I could eat more!
All in all, this is a beautiful, well tendered inn located in one of the most beautiful streets in the historic district. It's a beautiful mansion with period features, where you feel comfortable and not like in a museum. You have your own keys to the house and room, so it feels like being in your own stately home in Savannah. Despite being on a corner, there is little or no noise in the room. And you can perfectly walk to the restaurants closer to the river, or kick back at nearby Forsyth Park.
I really enjoyed my stay here and would not consider staying anywhere else. Thank you Jackie!
