Ballastone Inn

Perfectly located in the heart of Savannah’s historic district, this romantic and stylishly decorated 16-room bed-and-breakfast occupies a four-story 1838 antebellum mansion. The lavish accommodations feature hardwood floors, antique furniture and Lowcountry artwork; many have fireplaces, and three suites include whirlpool tubs. A sumptuous breakfast is served at tables for two and, weather permitting, in the courtyard.

Ballastone Inn 93 Junior Suite, from $365; Suite, from $395 (lower midweek rates available). 14 East Oglethorpe Avenue, Savannah. Tel. (912) 236-1484.

The Stephen Williams House

This graciously run five-room bed-and-breakfast has been recently renovated. Set in a restored 1834 Federal townhouse filled with magnificent antique furnishings, it is the residence of the engaging Dr. Albert Wall. Although the atmosphere will transport you back 150 years, you will also find modern amenities such as air-conditioning and well-appointed modern baths. A lavish Southern breakfast is served at a long table dating from 1810. A peaceful walled garden provides an ideal place to relax.

The Stephen Williams House 93 Deluxe Room, from $175; Stephen Williams Suite, from $325. 128 West Liberty Street, Savannah. Tel. (912) 495-0032.
