Our historic bed and breakfast offers seasonal getaway packages and specials that range in focus from history and culture to spa and festivals.

After you’ve secured your reservation, it’s time to plan the trip! In Savannah, you can do as much or as little as you’d like to. You can walk to the City Market and River Street, the theatre district, multiple world class restaurants, galleries, boutiques, parks and squares.
We suggest taking a carriage tour through downtown Savannah. This is a unique way to take in the architecture and learn about the history that shaped the historic city. You can book your tour with Historic Savannah Carriage Company, Old Savannah Tours, Oglethorpe Tours, or Savannah Walks.
Spend the rest of the day taking in an outdoor site like Forsyth Park, Wormsloe Historic Site or the beaches of Tybee Island. Known to many as Savannah’s beach, Tybee Island is an unbelievable stretch of sand that runs along the coast of Georgia. The beach has been a popular destination since the 1800s. It is wide and clean with warm, gentle waves! If you’re into history, Fort McAllister is located in downtown Savannah, where you can experience one of the best scenic parks in the region while viewing the best preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. Skidaway Island State Park is another great option. It borders what is known as the Skidaway narrows, which is a part of Georgia’s Intracoastal Waterway. You’ll take a walking trail through maritime forests and salt marshes, finding your way to an observation deck. It’s great for wildlife observing.
Next comes an amazing dinner at one of Savannah’s delicious restaurants! Savannah is home to famed chef Paula Deen and has a renowned food culture. There are endless restaurants to choose from, serving everything from authentic southern soul food to fresh seafood and local fare. Our staff at the Presidents’ Quarters Inn would be happy to assist you in making reservations. A few of our favorite restaurants include: Elizabeth’s on 37th, Circa 1875, Sapphire Grill, Noble Fare, Local 11 Ten, 45 Bistro, Cha Bella, Alligator Soul, and A. Lure.
