For those considered an authentic southern vacation, there's no better place to do it than Georgia. With so many historical towns and an atmosphere that can only be described as enchanting, it's easy to see why this state is home to so many high-rated Bed and Breakfasts. There are many must-see stops during a trip down south, but it's the accommodations that truly make a difference.
While Savannah sees much of the tourism business, there are other accommodations that are just as elegant and welcoming. Some feature courtyards that are straight out of a fairy tale while others have foyers that seem to say, "come in, have a cup of tea, and sit for a spell."
Any of these would make for a lovely Georgia vacation, and they hold the magic and old charisma that's all part of why the historical parts of this state are so magnetic to tourists. With Georgia considered to be an "emerging destination" for travelers, it's definitely worth checking out.
Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn
Savannah is a must-see destination for those visiting this southern state. Even more so, the Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn is a must-stay for those who are fans of this type of overnight stay.
It can be found in Savannah's historic district, only one block from the gorgeous Forsyth Park. The inn itself was built in 1853, maintaining much of the old architecture and stunning details that many seek when heading to Chatham Square. With comfortable, cozy rooms, this B&B is perfect for those who want to be within walking distance to Savannah's history.
Tybee Island Inn
Only a short distance from Savannah is the Tybee Island Inn. The first thing most guests notice is the wild Spanish moss that grows around the property, which only adds to the mysticism and beauty of this old sea-themed inn.
Guests will find that rooms are decorated with a seaside motif, which is a direct expression of Tybee Island itself, with its coastal charm and small-town feel. All of the rooms have seaside names as well and each features private baths along with cable and air conditioning. The surrounding property is gorgeous, and guests are free to explore the gazebo, private decks, and inquire about bike rentals.
Forsyth Park Inn
Forsyth Park is a historic part of Savannah and the Forsyth Park Inn can be found in what's considered to be the grandest mansion in the area.
This inn is known specifically for its food, which is gourmet with a bit of authentic southern flair. Guests will find hot coffee and fresh sweets in the AM before heading out to explore the surrounding area. The great thing about the Forsyth Park Inn, in particular, is its proximity to all there is to do in Savannah. Much of it is within walking distance, and it's easy to spend an entire day or more walking around in this district alone.
The Justine Inn is about as cute as they come. This townhouse was built in 1877 in the French Renaissance-style, making it architectural stunning as well as welcoming. It's also well within walking distance to Forsyth Park, placing it in the historic district of Savannah.
The Inn offers free breakfast, which is scratch-made and always delicious. Each room has full accommodations, from flat-screen TVs to private bathrooms. There's also a shared lounge and some of the rooms feature a soaking tub, perfect for ending a long day of walking around - especially with places such as Lafayette Square and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist within such close distance.
