What better way to immerse yourself in the historic ambiance of Savannah than to curl up and lay your head in it? From stately inns to homey mom-and-pops, Savannah's bed and breakfasts are the perfect places to truly experience the city's well-preserved past, its Southern hospitality—and its scrumptious breakfast fare. Most of Savannah's bed and breakfasts are conveniently nestled in the Historic District, making for central as well as atmospheric stays. But don't think worn bed springs and mothballs—bed and breakfasts in Savannah are casually chic and seem to effortlessly combine historic roots with modern amenities. No wonder Savannah's bed and breakfasts rank among the best in country. If you're going for historic, it doesn't get any more sweetly nostalgic than the Ballastone Inn. From period antiques to daily High Tea, Ballastone Inn does preservation right—and with 400-thread-count linens. In-room fireplaces and a private courtyard have certainly helped to make Ballastone Inn a critic and traveler favorite. The more modest Kehoe House holds a place in the National Register of Historic Places; the bed and breakfast offers modern amenities like air-conditioning and internet access in its five stories of Renaissance Revival wonder. If romance is on the agenda, you can't do much better than the Foley House. Overlook the Chippewa Square from a private balcony, soak in a Jacuzzi and feast on that famous breakfast in the sunken grotto garden. Nature lovers will want to nest up in the leafy Azalea Inn and Gardens, whose gardens feature eco-friendly indigenous plants and trees—and a courtyard swimming pool. And if you really want to experience what Savannah hospitality is all about, indulge in the evening milk and cookies at comfy, cozy Savannah's Bed and Breakfast Inn. If there's one place to leave behind sprawling modern chic for intimate historic elegance, Savannah's bed and breakfasts are it.
