|The beauty of historic Jones Street spills |
into Zeigler House Inn, as seen during
storytelling visits (often during the historic
inn's Friday complimentary social hour)
by renown historian
Eye-catching from the outside, the blush-colored Italianate mansion (circa 1856), now Zeigler House Inn, is located on one of the most picturesque blocks in the National Landmark Historic District.
"10Best: Prettiest Southern streets for a stroll" -- USA Today named Savannah, GA's Jones Street!From our historic Savannah inn's second floor parlor, the floor-to-ceiling windows open up and frame the beauty of outdoors again -- majestic Live Oak trees, mid-19th century town homes, manicured sidewalk gardens, amazed tourists snapping photographs, and the wide brick-paved Jones Street.
"Jones Street, Savannah, Ga. Like the consummate Southern belle, this street appears in every regional and national beauty contest, and often wins. Live oaks festooned with Spanish moss tower over the cobblestone street. Flowerbeds and perfectly trimmed hedges neatly border historic carriage houses – everything in seemingly perfect condition. The B&B crowd has always gravitated to Jones Street for its beautiful little inns housed in historic buildings, surrounded by galleries and antique shops. Lately, in social media channels, it's started to garner a Pinterest following with the same aesthetic."
Arriving and departing, garden and potted flowers are in view, not only in Zeigler House Inn's gardens but in the panorama of historic Jones and Barnard streets.
WHAT PASSES ZEIGLER HOUSE INN? AMERICA AT ITS BEST! Location. Location. Location!
"Zeigler House Inn's guests are right in the thick of memorable Savannah events, ideally to be present for those of-the-moment happenings, sometimes not planned. For example, guests may arrive to take part or simply cheer on runners passing along Barnard Street [right next to our inn]," Jackie adds. She is an avid supporter of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
- One example is the Publix Savannah Women Half and 5K, an inaugural running event happening Saturday, March 28, 2015. The race will pass Zeigler House Inn along Barnard Street.
- Again in April 2015 the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure passes Zeigler House Inn on Barnard Street. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.
- Hosted in Orleans Square on Barnard Street, the 2015 Tunnels to Towers 5k Walk & Run, (September 12, 2015) has its race route passing our historic inn.
Note: Associated with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, the local Tunnels to Towers group is helping to raise $800k to pay off mortgages for two slain NYC police officers.OF-THE-MOMENT TOP SAVANNAH SPOT FOR VALENTINE'S DAY OR ANNIVERSARY GETAWAY! NEW SAVANNAH RESTAURANT REVIEWS COME DIRECTLY FROM INN'S DISCERNING NEIGHBORS.
"My Jones Street, Chatham Square and Pulaski Square neighbors bring fresh views, personal interests, colorful opinions and insights, plus great pride about what is happening in the neighborhood, and what is new around town, especially downtown," shares innkeeper Jackie Heinz.
"For example, when walking my dog, Sophie, I will rave to a fellow resident about my pre-opening dinner night at the new The Grey restaurant. Or, ask about my neighbor's first dinner at The Florence, "Top Chef" judge Hugh Atcheson's new Savannah restaurant located on Victory Drive in a vintage ice house. (I loved the Smoked Duck Breast!) Another neighbor is eager to praise The Collins Quarter -- " Coffee Lab. Wine Bar. Farm to Table. Neighborhood Café" -- Savannah's chic coffee place to talk to locals during work breaks, lunch or early evening nightcaps.
"This awareness becomes a clear advantage of the staying in a private historic inn, located in a residential neighborhood, instead of a big Savannah hotel in the commercial district! The residential neighbors in the historic district tell it like it is. Amazingly, there are resounding reviews from all of these new Savannah sophisticated eateries about these three new places. I appreciate that these restaurateurs have raised the bar considerably for atmosphere, cuisine, and service. It give Savannah more opportunities to be recognized as a culinary destination."
