What to Expect from Our Accommodations on Your Getaway to Savannah
Perhaps you have never stayed at one of our member inns. This new experience may leave you with a few questions and concerns. We ask you to take a moment to read our thoughts on assuring the best possible getaway experience. Our B&Bs are as unique as the people who own them, but each one is dedicated to giving you an incredible experience - from simple to luxurious accommodations - we have it all. We believe you will be surprised at what you find to be included with each and every stay.
The First “B” - Bed (Rooms): You will find that most innkeepers have rooms with king, queen, or even twin beds - the mattresses are of the highest quality, and the linens are sumptuous, thus assuring a sound night’s sleep. Unlike European inns, we offer private in-rooms baths, and many inns have jetted tubs, whirlpools, and deluxe showers. Our B&Bs are located in historic buildings, so we have gone to a great deal of effort to preserve their historic charm.
The Second “B” - Breakfast: Breakfast is the second half of a B&B stay, and each innkeeper has their own repertoire of incredibly tasty recipes. From simple fare to candlelit romantic breakfasts, it is standard practice to include breakfast at no additional cost. You will find breakfast served in several ways from deluxe continental (usually rolls, muffins, coffee or tea and juice, cereal, and fruit), a full breakfast which may include continental items as wells as one or more cooked, hot items, and finally, we have those inns that offer a gourmet breakfast selection using fresh ingredients and seasonal fruits and vegetables presented in unusual breakfast entrees. Your breakfast may be offered in-room, seated family style, or even at a table for two. Many also offer breakfast in bed. The food is one of the things that differentiates each bed and breakfast, so be sure to ask what their offerings are. You will also find that many of our innkeepers are able to plan for special requests or dietary restrictions (especially allergies), but please be sure to let your innkeeper know when you are making your reservation. Whether at a communal dining table or smaller private ones, your B&B experience will be enhanced in conversations with your fellow travelers who delight in sharing their experiences.
Amenities - Amenities provided are as varied as our member inns. Most offer television, Internet, Wi-Fi, etc., but be sure to ask. The innkeeper will be more than pleased to point you to the places to go, will offer ideas on what to do, and will probably have maps readily available.
Children - Some of our inns are kid-friendly while others cater to adult travelers who arrive for romance. Please be sure to check with the innkeeper when making your reservation to ensure that you have made the best choice for your stay - if unable to meet your requirements, the innkeeper will point you to the best B&B for your needs.
Pets - Please be sure to check with the innkeeper regarding their pet policy: some B&Bs are pet-friendly, but others may have house pets that may not interact well with other animals. Also, the innkeeper or other guests may have allergies or phobias about pets.
Privacy - Privacy is important and if you are looking forward to a quiet time alone, every B&B specializes in providing that. If you want to meet and interact with the other guests, you will find ample opportunities to do so. You may always come and go as you please.
Manners - Courtesy and respect between innkeepers and guests and among the guests themselves are the keys to a pleasant stay. Guests are usually informed, either verbally or in writing, of the policies at each inn. The house rules are established for safety, cleanliness, and care. The rule of thumb: When in doubt, please ask. Please note: If you have arranged to check-in at a specific time, please do so, or call ahead to arrange an earlier or later arrival. Most inns are run by just one or two people who cannot staff the front desk 24/7.
