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?
