Among the many thousands of Bed & Breakfast homes available to visit across our great nation, only a handful offer the luxury of today combined with a historic past. Savannah Beach Inn has this and much more...
From the tip top of the third floor roof down to the first floor grand and timeless wrap around porch, the alluring charisma this historic home projects from the exterior is more than equaled on the inside. Careful, for once you visit the breathtaking views of the Atlanta Ocean and the oldest lighthouse in the United States along with the magnificent period decorated rooms, your heart will be captured.
The inn, with its Victorian Elegance, was built in 1898 (fully restored inside and out in 2002) and rises beautifully from a bluff that is known as Officers Row. The other homes along this bluff were built at the end of the 19th Century to house the officers that were stationed at Fort Pulaski, which occupied this spot so many years ago. Located on the not so publicized Tybee Island near Savannah Georgia, this unique bed and breakfast inn and the pristine beaches of Tybee Island, offer a romantic escape for all ages.
All six of the period appointed King and Queen Rooms, with their ornate tin ceilings have private baths. Modern conveniences in each room consists of telephones, cable TV with DVD and high speed internet access, which are tastefully unobtrusive to the warm and colorful period décor.
My personal favorite is a large, charming and romantic room located on the third floor—The Marshall Suite! A personal tour of the Inns WEB site is a must to engulf the splendor of all the rooms! The URL is located at savannahbeachinn.com and you will not want to miss anything, so be sure to explore the entire site.
A sincere welcome from the staff as warm as the gentle ocean breeze whispering around the wrap around porch immediately awaits all arrivals. Each morning of your stay begins in a charming period kitchen that is a favorite gathering place for guests. An evening wine reception presents a mellow atmosphere in the parlor with its colorfully adorned walls and ornate ceiling.
Following a romantic moon light lovers walk on the beach, bedtime cookies await the anticipated restful slumber of your chosen special room, as the gentle waves of the Atlanta Ocean wash ashore nearby.
The Savannah Beach Inn, owned by Innkeeper Ann Last, is a must travel item. It is a travel destination that should be placed at the top of your busy travel schedule. Warning! Do not disappoint your visit by underestimating the number of days and nights you plan to spend here. Although the Tybee Beach area is not as crowded as the more known beaches of the east coast, reservations at this enchanting Inn should be made well in advance of your planned stay.
Visit their WEB site savannahbeachinn.com or call direct at 800-844-1398. This is one of those places where you go...that you want to stop forever...
