JACKIE ENCOURAGES "ME TIME" IN SAVANNAH THIS SUMMER 2016.
Our bed and breakfast guests are people who want to (1) take time to travel and explore new places, (2) take time to slow down and enjoy life, (3) take time to spend with family and friends, (4) take time to explore different interests, and (5) take time to live personal dreams.
"It takes everyone doing their jobs magnificently," says Kentucky-born innkeeper Jackie Heinz, of Zeigler House Inn, whose extraordinary southern hospitality typifies front-man duties to insure superlatives are on tap for each guest's visit year around.
In 2016, summer begins with the solstice on June 20 at 6:34 p.m. EDT.
Midsummer marks the ancient middle of Summer, astronomical beginning of Summer, and the nativity of St. John the Baptist. The date close to the Summer Solstice on June 19–24 is the traditional dates for Scandanavian and European celebrants.
WHAT ARE SOME WAYS TO FANCY AND SAVOR SUMMER DREAMING IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA?
1. TAKE TIME TO TRAVEL AND EXPLORE NEW PLACES.
In Savannah, visit the magnificent historic churches and Cathedral. Surely savoring a southern praline and strolling along the Savannah waterfront or Tybee Island beach triggers that feeling of being in a new place and time. Some actually call it 'time travel'. Zeigler House Inn has private keys to the Mati Hari Speakeasy, where one can experience the Roaring Twenties and cheating on Prohibition.
2. TAKE TIME TO SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY LIFE.
Dining in one of Savannah's hip new restaurants offers the opportunity to slow down at our reknown southern pace to enjoy life. Our favorite new spots include The Grey, The Florence, 39 Rue de Jean, and The Vault Kitchen and Market. Whether true or not, it's easy to imagine that the slow food movement began in Savannah with the Forsyth Park Farmer's Market, day-boat seafood, and farmer-delivered meats, produce and fruits! Farm-to-table "new southern' and creatively presented French, Asian, and artisan foods are the specialties.
Take in a paranormal or ghost tour with excellent storytellers at Sixth Sense Tours or Bonaventure After Hours with Shannon Scott Journeys.
"Up and down, up and down
I will lead them up and down
I am feared in field in town
Goblin, lead them up and down."
-- William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
3. TAKE TIME TO SPEND WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
With ease of access by way of I-16, I95, US 17, US 80 and the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport, it's easy for friends and family to meet up in Savannah. Zeigler House Inn's rooms are more like mini-apartments. And, there are 7 of them! Reserve multiple rooms.

on Friday nights at Zeigler House Inn ... a
special, intimate introduction to the arts in Savannah, GA.
The arts and antiques are abundant in Savannah. Young artists and creatives attending the Savannah College of Art and Design add to the classic and modern art of Telfair Museums and over fifty art galleries. It's easy to find a hip music scene any night of the week in the National Landmark Historic District's 'hip and historic' neighborhood of fun-loving creatives.
5. TAKE TIME TO LIVE PERSONAL DREAMS.
Why limit dreaming to midsummer only? Here's an idea: At the conclusion of your summer vacation in Savannah, wouldn't it be fun to ponder if you have lived out themes in William Shakespeare's comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream? The themes are love, carnivalesque, problem with time, loss of individual identity, ambiguous sexuality, feminism, and religious.
“Are you sure/That we are awake? It seems to me/That yet we sleep, we dream”Get away soon and often! Jackie Heinz at Zeigler House Inn, our Savannah bed and breakfast inn on world famous Jones Street in the historic district, is the perfect southern-born hostess to introduce you to more of authentic Savannah, Georgia places and the best things to do on the Georgia coast.

* The first Salzburgers landed in Savannah, Georgia after a two months trip across the Atlantic Ocean to escape religious persecution in their native country of Salzburg, presently known as Austria. The industrious settlers built their religious Lutheran community in Ebenezer along the Savannah River near today's Rincon, Georgia.
