My wife, Stacy, and I are looking for places south of Pittsburgh to relocate – at least for a time in the winter. Toward that end, we are interviewing cities throughout the South. Savannah’s turn came the weekend of March 22 & 23. We selected The Olde Savannah Inn from all the others. Boy, were we glad about that. We arrived late in the evening. Kathleen, owner and hostess, waited up for us and welcomed us with hugs and kisses. That was the beginning of a delightful weekend in a beautiful little city in Georgia.

Kathleen guided us to our room, the “Provence”, where she let us take in the stunning décor. The bed was adorned in the most European tradition -- a working fireplace and the robes – the robes. We were given a guided tour of the rest of the house – the three other rooms were equally divine. The “Versailles” was amazing – probably still is.

Lest we forget, the Old Savannah Inn is a bed and breakfast. We slept very well in the bed, but were totally unprepared for the breakfasts. They were works of art. There isn’t a way to describe them to you because they are ever-changing. I could talk about the apple-cinnamon pancakes topped with strawberries and homemade whipped cream or the omelet loaded with apple-cured bacon and three cheeses and a few hash browns -- stellar. However, there is no sense talking about them because every breakfast is different than that last – no two will ever be alike.

Then there’s Dakota, a big, shy, totally devoted to Kathleen, black Lab. He assisted several of us with our breakfasts and delightfully greeted us with a wagging tail.

Kathleen is a wonderful hostess. She catered to our every whim, offering to call Peddycabs, taxis, or arrange for reservations on any of the tours or at any of the million restaurants. Kathleen is from Boston – Yank meets Reb in Savannah. Her B&B really has the feel of the Olde South yet it is undeniable that there is culture drawn from both – Boston & the South. What a combination. By the way, CALL NOW! Kathleen has availability in May…a great time to visit a gorgeous, friendly and little city.

Savannah is a great place to go and the Olde Savannah Inn is the best place to stay. Stacy and I will return – maybe to stay. Who knows?

Our stay at the Olde Savannah Inn over St. Patrick's Day weekend was truly extraordinaire. Kathleen Dupuis, the Inn owner, and her devoted companion, Dakota met us at the door with the warmth of someone you would consider a dear friend. Our room was spectacular with additional personal touches that were added to ensure our comfort. Each morning we were greeted with the fantastic aroma of meals that were being prepared especially for us. Our breakfasts were unbelievably savory, not to mention quite memorable.

The Inn was truly charming and Kathleen and Dakota both succeeded is making us feel very special during our stay. I would encourage others to share in the experience in staying at such a fine establishment

The location is very good, the decor is better and the ambience better still, all crowned by superb hospitality, a helpful innkeeper and one of the best breakfast tables we have been fortunate enough to sit at.

Our experience at the Olde Savannah Inn is one we shall try to repeat and will not hesitate to recommend to others.

My husband and I arrived on a Wednesday without any specific plans for the day. Upon finding out about our sketchy itinerary, Miss Kathleen set us up with the best ideas. She proceeded to make arrangements for a pedicab to take us to Garibaldi's Restaurant (delicious!) . The pedicab ride was fun! A most charming SCAD student did the driving. Ask for Taylor if you get the chance. After dinner the second night (700 Drayton), a delightful addition to the evening was a night time carriage ride through the historic district. Miss Kathleen knows a gracious woman with her own carriage tour business-- an actual local- who met us after our dinner, exactly as planned, and took us for a lovely ride through the town and back to the inn. Worth the money if you like romance! The Olde Savannah Inn was just beautiful. The room was cleaner than mine at home and the linens were soft as silk. We were met by Kathleen with a tour of her spectacular inn, cold iced tea, and the best chocolate chip cookies. Her breakfasts cannot be beat and easily staved off our hunger until about 3:00 in the afternoon. Kathleen made us feel welcome and as though she had always known us. She was honest and helpful when asked about places to go and things to do. Every opinion she gave us turned out to be on target. We enjoyed meeting other guests throughout our stay. I can't say enough about the Olde Savannah Inn and Miss Kathleen. I would recommend her inn -and have already done so- and look forward to a return trip someday.

This Inn is the most elegant, yet warm and cozy B&B I have ever stayed in. Just to give you an idea it has crystal chandeliers, oriental rugs and luxury, european bedding and linens. It is SPOTLESSLY clean.The breakfasts are outstanding, all gourmet, all homemade. The location is within a few minutes walk of the entire historic district of Savannah as well as many wonderful resturants. Best of all the Inn Kepper, Kathleen cares about each and every guest and is friendly and helpful.

The Olde Savannah Inn is a truly wonderful bed and breakfast – from the romantic and top-notch accommodations to the divine breakfasts, refreshments, and deserts, to the superb and knowledgeable inn keeper.

When we arrived, Kathleen and Dakota (a loving black lab) greeted us as “family” arriving from out of town. We took a tour of the home – absolutely amazing – and then got acquainted with Kathleen and Dakota over a glass of wine. After that, we settled in our room and unpacked while enjoying the chocolate chip cookies. Kathleen took care of dinner reservations, transportation, and our ghost/history tour for our visit. The first night, we ate at the Old Pink House and on the second night, we ate at 700 Drayton. Both restaurants were excellent, both in food and service. On the third evening, we enjoyed the wine social with the other guests of the inn as we were delightfully entertained by Miss Diana on the piano.

As for the inn, it is decorated from top to bottom in beautiful décor all topped with several sparkling chandeliers. Each of the bedrooms is unique in its own way – we would be happy staying in any one of them. Our rooms were absolutely gorgeous and very romantic. The Provence room was cozy, comfortable, and romantic, with the shower and remote controlled working fireplace adding nice touches. After two nights in this room, we moved to the “royal” Versailles Court. Wow! --- from the canopy bed, to the beautiful furniture, to the amazing bathroom – jacuzzi (with mood lighting), two claw foot tubs, the archways, all topped by a beautiful chandelier. You could not have prepared a more romantic atmosphere than that set by the Versailles Court.

The breakfasts each morning were outstanding. From the fresh fruit served in goblets, to the baked pears stuffed with bleu cheese topped with Kathleen’s famous frozen whipped cream, to the frittata with bacon, cheddar, and apples, to the bacon cheddar grits. And there was too much more to describe, but each dish was delightful.

On our last day, as we prepared to leave, Kathleen packed us cookies and bottled water for our trip home. We hugged, leaving new members of the family, as we sadly left our home away from home.

If you a looking for a romantic getaway or just a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the Olde Savannah Inn is THE place.

My wife Pauline and I stayed at this beautiful B&B this past January for our first wedding anniversary, and it was incredible! Kathleen was very kind and gave us such a warm welcome into her home. The house was really amazing, and the location was perfect! Kathleen is an excellent cook and her morning breakfasts will truly be missed! She even went out of her way to buy strawberries for us so we could enjoy a romantic evening together! Our stay at the the Olde Savannah Inn was perfect in every way! Thank you very much Kathleen!
