Foley House Inn Bed & Breakfast, Savannah, Georgia

Kev and I just got back from Savannah, Georgia, where we stayed at the Foley House Inn during our visit over Valentine’s Day.

You might recall how Kevin came to choose the Foley House as our accommodations for the weekend from my Christmas present travel brochure

The house was perfectly gorgeous. Here’s the sitting room just as you walk in the door.

And downstairs, the beautiful brick hallway leading to our room.

Lovely! I appreciated the double suitcase stands.

I couldn’t get enough of the peach painted brick walls and wooden slat ceiling. And that fireplace!

This was our little sitting area, where we’d crash daily after walking all over Savannah. We only drove one time during the four days we were there – to dinner one night. Everywhere else, we walked. I love that in a vacation spot.

This was our cozy bathroom.

I loved every bit of this beautiful, historic home.

This was the door leading out to our private garden area.

There was a cozy fence all the way around, and as soon as we’d get back to the room we’d open the door and let in the cool, fresh air.

Beyond our garden was another shared garden area.

The weather in Savannah was warm and sunny for our visit.

I can picture myself with a book out here. With a laptop on the table.

I could’ve spent the whole weekend within these serene walls.

But we did eventually venture outside. Here was our view from the front door.

The inn overlooks Chippewa Square, which was convenient for walking Miley and Howie.

I’m happy to report that we did not run into any ghosts during our stay! Our room felt warm and inviting. I forgot it was supposed to be haunted!

    My wife and I visited Savannah for her birthday.  Stayed at the “Haunted” Foley Inn and had a great time!  It is centrally located and pretty much everything is walkable. Would definitely like to do it again.  The ghostly fellow in the old top hat that roamed the halls and garden was very friendly!!!?

    I just looked through all your Savannah posts. I’m considering moving and your photos were helpful. Beautiful city!

    I love, love, love Savannah. We were lucky enough to go in late Spring of this year. Everything was in full bloom and the weather was PERFECT. If anyone has any ideas of where to stay, please let me know. We stayed at the Hyatt – great location on the river and within a short walking distance to the squares but the ambiance was not at all what we were hoping for. We have made plans to visit next year (and the next year, and the next…) but would really like to stay in a much more “charming” establishment with a little less chain-hotel feel. We really want to submerge ourselves in the entire Savannah experience starting with our room.

    Thanks!

    Someone shared a recipe of yours on FB. and I started checking your blog out this morning! My handsome husband and I stayed in that exact garden room when we went to Savannah in 200. How fun that you’ve shared it here!

  5. Carol

    What a fantastic outdoor area, I love it. It’s given me such great ideas now, we’ve got a mish mash of brickwork out the back sliding doors of our home here, soooo ugly, this would be perfect to disguise the majority of it. Love your blog.

  6. BeeJay

    I’m surprised you were allowed to have dogs in a B&B. Walking around Savannah is really nice (unless you’re there in the hot, muggy summer), but people, take note, there are great things to see within driving distance – Fort Pulaski, Tybee Island, and Paula Deen’s uncle’s restaurant, Uncle Bubba’s, which we DID get to eat at. Phenomenal!

    Amanda, I love reading your blog and we actually live 30 miles away from Savannah. I used to work downtown Savannah and my friends and I would walk to River Street for lunch. Or just walk around the park on our break. My husband and I recently took our daughter for a carriage ride downtown and I had forgotten how beautiful it was. I am glad you enjoyed it! Isn’t The Lady and Son, the best!

    Oh the Foley House Inn is so beautiful. I LOVe old buildings and this one has so much character, beauty and detail. Thanks for sharing the photos. This sounds like just the place I would love to visit. Just beautiful. I thought the brick hallway was an unusual/unique detail :) :) Thanks for taking us on a virtual tour. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

    Savannah looks so romantic and relaxing! I really love the exposed wooden slat ceilings in your room… the whole place has so much character!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures! My hubby and I are going to Savannah in September for our anniversary! I can’t wait! The Foley House B&B looks like a wonderful place to stay! Will have to look into that………..Glad you and Kevin had a great time! Hopefully you will update us on the restaurants you went to and things you did! I need all the info I can get! Have a great day!

  15. Kristen@PrettySweet

    That inn is gorgeous! Oh, my! I love the exposed brick and the red color scheme. Stunning! Can’t wait to hear about the rest of the trip. =)

  16. Rebekah T

    Gorgeous place! Thanks for sharing the pictures. Too bad you didn’t catch any images with ghosts in them. Would have made the trip even more worth it, huh!? :)

  17. Kaylene

    aw man, I was really hoping for a good ghost story!

    p.s: I am currently enjoying a cold chess bar with my hot coffee. The PERFECT pairing. Thanks for the recipe!

  18. Courtney Flores

    BEAUTIFUL! I love Savannah, and we are only 3 hours away from there. I was thinking about trying to spend a weekend there for a “babymoon” soon. I will definitely be checking out that hotel.

    Did you eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant?

  19. Heather @ Sweet Sins 2 Share

    The trees that line the streets are my favorite part! I have always wanted to go! That room in your Inn is gorgeous!!

  20. lesli

    This is so pretty! Savannah is on my must vist list of places for this year. And they allowed dogs at Foley House? That’s wonderful! Also, I love that you were able to walk most places–that is a definite plus for a vacation spot.

    My sister-in-law lives in NM now but was born and raised (& only moved in the past 6 yrs)from Georgia! I have ALWAYS wanted to go there! Thanks! Those are beatiful pictures. It just seems like such an inviting place vs. the vast & dry area of Texas I live in. Thank you again.

  22. Janet Gallaher

    Hi guys,
    This place looks lovely…perfect for a weekend (or longer!!) get-away. Isn’t Savannah romantic and wonderful? And this B&B allows our puppies? cuz if they do, I’m going there. My Gabby loves to travel with us. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful pictures. We’re going to Spain and Italy in May…wish I could take you with me to take all my photographs!

  23. Terry

    Your first picture convinced me this would be a great place to visit. The picture of the park where you walk your 4-legged children cinched the deal. Thanks for sharing your trip.

  24. Susan

    Beautiful!! Yes, I have questions too about the B&B being dog friendly. Thank so much for sharing and allowing us to vacation vicariously through you.

  25. Myrna Mackenzie

    Those were such beautiful pictures. And Savannah is one of those places I’ve always wanted to visit but never have. Now I think I’m going to have to find a way to swing it. In my mind I’m already drinking coffee in the garden. (By the way, I found your site by doing a search on ways to make a signature for blog posts. Who knew there would be all this other awesome stuff! Like food and travel. Great site)!

  26. Carrie

    Love this post – made me feel like spring “might” be on the way somewhere.

    Also love that you got to take Miley and Howie…assuming it was a dog friendly B&B?

  27. Mary Pettit

    Isn’t that true? Walking everywhere is such a treat when you go somewhere. I think it is the best way to get to know a place..pied a terre, I think it is called. And, the garden is a little jewel. Thank you for the window into Savannah

  28. Amy

    Oh my goodness, it was just as beautiful as I imagined. Thank you so much for always sharing your adventures. It certainly perks up an otherwise routine day.

  29. Salina

    I love savannah!! I’ve visited that house but never stayed. I’ve been meaning to tell you that I loved the NYC bakery photos. In fact, a Cannon EOS 7D is now on my wish list. I keep giving my husband subtle hints and he looks at me like , “Yes dear. I heard you the last four times you mentioned it.” Thanks for the inspiration!

  30. Paulette

    I have been dreaming of going to Savannah for years. Now I really want to go, especially to the Foley House. Did you say it was haunted? Maybe I will rethink that. LOL Loved the pictures glad you had a wonderful time. Paulette
