Lodging

Savannah B&B Inn:
The block of row homes that encompasses the Savannah Inn Bed & Breakfast was developed between 1852 and 1854. Built in the Federal style, the unit at 117 was renovated and opened as a bed and breakfast in 1978. Guests at the inn today are within walking distance of all that downtown Savannah offers restaurants, taverns, museums, galleries, historic landmarks and trolley tours. The inn keeps its guests well fed with a hearty breakfast, which can be eaten on the patio, an afternoon tea and milk and cookies at bedtime.
The Blue Heron Inn:
This Georgia coast inn sits on the very edge of expansive marsh and winding tidal creeks. Every guest room opens to breathtaking views of marsh, estuaries and Georgia’s barrier islands. Large comfortable rooms decorated with coastal elegance, are provided with southern hospitality at its best.
Jekyll Island Club Hotel:
The beaches of Jekyll Island are packed by the footsteps of early hunter gatherers, members of the Guale Indian tribe, Spanish explorers and eventually the English in 1733. At the turn of the twentieth century, the island became home to a very elite social club for America’s wealthy. It was popular with the tycoons of that time—J.P. Morgan, William Rockefeller, Vincent Astor, Joseph Pulitzer, William K. Vanderbilt, the Macys, the Goodyears, and the Goulds. Today’s guests enjoy luxury accommodations, fine dining, 10 miles of pristine beach, golf, tennis and horseback riding, among many other activities.
