Historic Savannah is filled with incredible architecture and historic homes; which is why we are lucky enough to have some of the most beautiful Bed & Breakfasts in the country. Ornately decorated and full of history (and perhaps a few spirits as well), many Savannah locals even plan their own “stay-cations” at historic B&B’s!
The Hamilton – Turner Inn
Experience Southern Hospitality at its finest in this boutique hotel on Lafayette Square. The Hamilton Turner Inn has an incredible history, being that it was the first residence in Savannah to have electricity, nearly destroyed by the great Savannah fire of 1898 ( but luckily spared due to it’s tin roof), and home to the Marine Hospital Nurses in 1928. The home was also referenced in the popular book, The Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, where Joe Odom threw his notorious parties. The home was converted into luxury Savannah suites in 1997, and continues to charm it’s visitors with amenities such as morning coffee and newspaper delivery, breakfast each morning, afternoon refreshments, evening wine and hors d’oerves, and late evening port.
The Eliza Thompson House
The Eliza Thompson House is located on the beautiful and historic Jones Street, known as Savannah’s most prestigious street to live on. Just a short walk from Savannah’s historic attractions, the Eliza Thompson House is a private peaceful retreat, offering twelve rooms in the “Main House,” with an additional 13 rooms in the “Carriage House” overlooking the lush courtyard. This was the first home constructed on Jones Street in 1847, home to Eliza and Joseph Thompson and their seven children. After Joseph’s death in 1855, Eliza managed the home as a strong independent woman, and continued to entertain often. If you wish to explore Savannah’s haunted history, the Eliza Thompson House has been home to several paranormal sightings, which you can read more about here.
