In my last post here about the Ziegler House Inn, I told you about why we decided to have our one year anniversary in Savannah at the Ziegler House.
Now, I get to tell you about our experience there.
We arrived in Savannah early as we had planned. We wanted to be able to spend as much time in the city as possible since we were only there for what would amount to a 24 hour period.
Natalie pulled up just down the street from the Inn (we actually drove past the Inn without knowing it). Since we were early, weren’t altogether sure we would be able to check in so early in the morning. We called Jackie (the owner) to see if she was ready for us.
She wasn’t, but told us she would call us as soon as she was. And that is exactly what she did.
Jackie greeted us at the door with a big old southern welcome (the house is locked to protect the guests in the main house) and invited us into the main entrance of the house. Oh, what a beautiful house it was. She showed us around the house and all the treats we could have will we were there… I LOVE treats!! Then we were off to our room.
We headed out of the main house and out to a side entrance. I was immediately excited about having a private entrance to our room. Once we walked into the room, we were taken. It was so beautiful. It was romantic, warm, private and very peaceful.
As Jackie showed us around our room, I noticed some scruptious treats sitting on the kitchen counter (remember I love treats – lol!). So while she showed Natalie the rest of the room, I decided to check out the fridge. She had yogurt, english muffins, soda, juice, and rice milk (which you got just for us) all loaded in the refrigerator for us. She also had the pastries and fruit on the counter. And let me tell you, Jackie makes the pastries fresh each day and they were delicious!!
After drooling over the goodies in the kitchen, I caught up with Jackie and Natalie on the terrace… Yes, we had a terrace ground level terrace to our room. It was wonderful!! I just hate we didn’t get to spend a lot of time on it.
Once Jackie left us, we finally got a chance to really taken in the beauty of our room. There was a king size bed that was beautifully made. In front of the bed was two antique chairs to sit and watch tv if you wanted. There was a fireplace (non- working) for decoration. The bathroom was large and had a jet tub ( to bad we didn’t get to use it) in it. Oh, and don’t for get the terrance.
I have to say this room put any hotel we might have stayed in to shame. One of the best things about staying at the Zeigler House Inn was that it was so quiet and peaceful. You could not hear your neighbors in other rooms talking and also no worries of people running the in hallways.
I can not tell you how much I enjoyed my stay at the Zeigler House Inn. Jackie truly went above and beyond for use and truly appreciate her for that. To me, this was southern hospitality as its best! She made me feel like I was on of the family from the time we stepped in the front door.
We will be going back to the Zielger house and hopefully next time we can stay longer. So if you are going to Savannah, I really suggest you consider stay with Jackie at the Zeigler House Inn. You will not be disappointed.
