A friend of mine virtually introduced me to a local innkeeper who runs a Savannah Bed & Breakfast on beautiful Gaston Street, so I could not wait to get by to meet her in person. Gardens always motivate me and peeking behind a secret pathway to view cozy sitting areas and new plants got me there quick.
Kathleen Dupois is the proprietor of the Olde Savannah Inn, one of the finest bed and breakfast establishments I’ve ever stepped into. I was truly amazed to find not only beautiful antiques, but amazing chandeliers and French decor which compliments the mansion without overdoing it.
My favorite spot is the fresh and bright breakfast room which allows visitors to look out to the gardens. Can you believe I forgot my camera? I “borrowed” this photo of the breakfast room from the net, and can tell you the room does look like this! It’s amazing and Southern Living magazine really needs to come and see! Then I found out what Kathleen serves at her breakfast celebrations. Who else has a candlelight breakfast and serves Creme Brûlée in the morning??
Kathleen took me upstairs to the honeymoon suite and my jaw nearly dropped! Steps away from the four post bed, marble floors take you to a large jacuzzi tub, two pedestal sinks and his and hers claw foot tubs.
This is where we will be sending our out of town guests and inquiring visitors. Did I mention the 800 count sheets? True elegance and luxury.
