After settling in, we were invited down for a high tea. Now, I love high tea so I had been looking forward to it on our way to the Ballastone Inn and it did not disappoint. We were served in the location that what would normally be a tea room in a mansion. Right by the front door, next to the front window, where guest would have normally been greeted. I fell in love with this cute room. The curtains blended so well with the wall coverings you could barely tell the difference between the two on the wall. Charming! As for the tea and accompaniments, you chose your tea from a tea box and then gently poured the hot water from the silver water poured spout. Extra points for quaintness. The sandwich was spot on and they had tiny desserts and chocolate covered strawberries. Everything tasted delicious.
Next, they had a wine and appetizers at 6 pm and then a port tasting at 7 pm. Did I mention all of this was included in our room price? Well it was, as was a homemade breakfast in the morning. I think this bed and breakfast could have been a great stay if our theme had just been of good food from Georgia, but this time we had set our theme on the ghost tour and history of Savannah, Georgia. Just to wet your appetite, the breakfast was a dusted cinnamon French toast with warmed maple syrup, cooked-to-order eggs, and sausage. The menu changes daily based on the chef, but maybe if you are lucky you can get this same breakfast. It was a perfect start to our day! Hats off to the chef and the always smiling staff.
Next weeks post: The Zombie Tour portion. Not for the easily scared.
As promised the name of those amazing microfiber sheets that we just had to buy from is the Comphy Sheets store online. They are just as Comphy on our own bed!
