foley house inn and savannah, georgia

Well, we made it to our new place in Boston! We’re living in a high-rise and it’s hilarious to watch the dogs because they’re not used to this type of view. I already have my blogging desk set up (isn’t that the most important spot in any apartment?) and I completely agree with Malcolm and Ollie — the view doesn’t suck. Since B has the rest of the week off from work, we’ll be exploring the area and unpacking suitcases and boxes. Be sure to follow along on Instagram because I loooove oversharing.

On our drive up to Boston, we were able to make a few stops and the first one was in Savannah, Georgia. Scotland turned us into bigs fans of quaint bed and breakfasts so we made a reservation at the Foley House Inn. It’s supposedly one of the most haunted buildings in Savannah but sadly, we didn’t experience any run-ins with spirits during out stay. It was; however, gorgeous and in a convenient location.

The best part about our room was the four-poster bed and dramatic fireplace. When bed and breakfasts are comfortable and have a lot of character like the Foley House Inn, it’s sometimes difficult to want to leave and explore the area, but I’m happy to report that we did indeed get our lazy butts out of bed.

The bed and breakfast was dog-friendly and they greeted us on arrival with a bag of Three Dog Bakery dog treats. How did they know these are Malcolm’s favorite? ;)

The inn also had a complimentary happy hour with wine and hors-d’oeuvres from 6-7 every day and a wonderful breakfast was included in the rate.

Other than relaxing at the inn, our time in Savannah included a lot of coffee and food. Some of our favorite coffee shops were The Coffee Fox and The District Cafe & Eatery for cold brew coffee, and we made a stop at Leopold’s Ice Cream for strawberry milkshakes. Why didn’t I take more photos of this? Because I was probably drenched in sweat.

We had dinner at the Olde Pink House, which I highly recommend because their scallop and shrimp fettuccine is still on my mind, then the next day we had lunch at Six Pence Pub.

We spent a lot of time walking around River Street because there were events going on and a lot of shops to explore, and we loved that the city was so dog friendly.

Have you been to Savannah?

    I have never been to GA but I do go to Boston often. Living in Maine, it becomes a really nice day trip. So much to do, so much to see, and oh my goodness the food is spectacular! I really hope you enjoy Boston, and come to maine this fall for the foliage – its stunning :)

    Savannah is one of my favorite places! It’s a fairly easy drive from ATL so it makes for a good weekend getaway and not to mention best St. Patrick’s day celebration ever! Glad y’all enjoyed your time there!

    I grew up somewhat close to Savannah, but hadn’t gone back to visit for several years until this past Easter. It certainly is a beautiful city! We are actually planning a trip to Boston at sometime in the near future, so I can’t wait to read about your adventures in your new city!

    Lovely photos! I used to live right outside of Savannah and I have to say I really enjoyed the historic feel of Savannah. It’s a great place to visit, especially while down South.

    My next trip has Savannah on the map! I haven’t booked any accommodation yet but I will most definitely look into the Foley House Inn, although the supernatural scares me to pieces so maybe not… but that bed sure looks amazing.

    I was in Savannah a few years ago and absolutely fell in love with it. The Spanish Moss on the trees in the squares was one of my absolute favorite things. That city is FULL of history.

    Savannah is one of my favorite cities. There is so much character and I could spend hours walking around and taking pictures of all of the different squares and beautiful homes and gardens. I have been there a few times, but only on day trips. I hope to go back again soon and spend a little time, so I will definitely have to check out the Foley Inn.

    I am from Georgia and absolutely LOVE Savannah! Because I have friends that attend school there, I visit periodically. You seemed to hit some of the best places Savannah has to offer on your visit. I am really looking forward to traveling out of the country though, and your blog is perfect inspiration! Thank you!
