“Weekend getaway !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Thanks so much for a glorious visit !! We loved Rhett's Retreat (especially the tub!). My husband and I really needed to recharge our batteries and everyone helped us do just that. The breakfast was amazing. I almost didn't want to eat lunch later. Your tea time was so much fun too! Our deep thanks to Aimee for helping get us dinner reservations and arranging the carriage ride. Although it was sprinkling that night, your umbrellas helped us enjoy a fun-filled trip to the Olde Pink House for an exquisite dinner. We will definitely come back again!!!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 4th floor. Very quiet and cozy. Loved the pictures of Rhett Butler !!!!

Our three night stay at the Ballastone Inn was wonderful. All of the women were great hostesses and did make sure you had what you needed. We had the Low Country and Savannah rooms. They were comfortable and we all agreed that the sheets were fantastic! (Comfy co. Microfiber) I also loved the wonderful robe. At breakfast they made sure we had what we wanted and even did a couple of changes and modifications for us. It was a special time for me as it was the celebration of Girl Scouting's 100th anniversary and this B&B was right next door to Juliette Gordon Low's birthplace. I was hoping to stay there for a return trip in May but unfortunately they are totally booked! Tea time was lovely when we were able to make it. A very relaxing stay and we were wishing we could have stayed longer.

We stayed in Scarletts Retreat and it was comfy and lovely. Love the jacuzzi. The breakfast was very good. Only disappointment were the hors d'oeuvres--not what is shown on website. At 4 p.m. tea time, we only had lemon bars and plain scones w/cream--no sandwiches or other pastries as advertised. At 6 p.m. they only had cucumber spread and crackers plus mushrooms stuffed with green onion stuff which smelled terrible. You could smell that odor when you walked in the bar room. Glad we stayed but we would NOT go back.

Room Tip: Scarletts room has a good view, plenty of windows, street side.

My husband surprised me with a romantic getaway at the beautiful Ballastone Inn. We started our day at 4:00 with high tea. It was very elegant, and we enjoyed sitting in the parlor drinking our tea and savoring the scrumptious scones and tea sandwiches. The China Trade Suite was gorgeous.The king size four poster plantation bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The sheets must be 1000 count! I could of stayed in bed all day after experiencing such a wonderful night of restful sleep. It was a heavenly experience. My husband and I loved listening to the lovely classical music as we sipped our wine and nibbled on the delicious appetizers in the parlor. The owner, Jennifer Salandi was there that evening mingling with the guests and making sure all the guests wishes came true! The staff working that weekend was Melissa and Amy. They were both so friendly and always accommodating. By the end of our stay we felt like we had made two new friends. I can see why tourists fall in love with Savannah, and the Ballastone Inn is definitely one of the reasons. The southern hospitality we were shown, and the way we were pampered makes me want to return for another special occasion in the future. As we were leaving we were handed a box of "Savannah Smiles" lemon girl scout cookies as a departing gift. What an added touch! This Savannahian is still smiling from her wonderful experience staying at the fabulous Ballastone Inn. Thank you Jennifer, Melissa, and Amy for making our Valentine's Day weekend such a special memory that we will cherish for a lifetime. I can see why the Ballastone Inn Bed and Breakfast is a Diamond Collection Property. It is a shining example of southern hospitality.

We brought 12 ladies here for a girl's weekend and we had a fabulous time. The Inn was beautiful and cozy, the food was great and the staff were so hospitable and just nice. They cater to your every need and do it with a smile. It rained for most of the weekend while we were there and the Inn provided umbrellas for each one of us to use - such a small thing, but made such a difference!

If I ever go back to Savannah, I definitely want to stay at the Ballastone. You won't get better service anywhere else!

BTW, their beds were amazing. Almost every single one of us ordered a set of their sheets before we left!

Room Tip: I would prefer to stay in the third or fourth levels. Any of those rooms would be great. Never saw...
