A simplified “destination Thanksgiving” that doesn’t skimp on what matters. Savannah’s Presidents’ Quarters Inn will handle every detail to make Thanksgiving hassle-free, yet elegant and steeped in tradition. Ideal for empty-nesters!
SAVANNAH, GA (November 1, 2009) -- A simplified Thanksgiving doesn’t have to mean sacrificing what matters. Getaway for Thanksgiving in historic downtown Savannah—hassle-free, yet steeped in history and tradition. The Presidents’ Quarters Inn offers to tailor your getaway to make Thanksgiving weekend memorable and free from days of planning, preparation and clean up.
Arrive to Savannah’s Oglethorpe Square on Wednesday afternoon, and check into your overly-spacious suite at The Presidents’ Quarters Inn, one of historic Savannah’s top-rated Bed and Breakfast Inns. Settle into the 19th century mansions that are home to the inn just in time for complimentary wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres prepared from authentic Savannah recipes.
On Thanksgiving morning, instead of waking before dawn to cook the turkey, sleep late. Executive Innkeeper Jane Sales has a suggestion for earlier risers, “Enjoy a downtown walk or run in the cool morning quiet of Savannah’s historic squares.” Return just in time for a complimentary made-to-order holiday brunch in the inn’s parlor and private courtyard.
Resist the temptation to overindulge at brunch-- your Thanksgiving meal reservation is waiting at The Olde Pink House, home of elegant southern fare served in a restored 18th century residence. The Olde Pink House is where patriotic Sons of Liberty met, and now is a local favorite for Thanksgiving lunch or dinner, offering a three-course set menu presentation featuring traditional turkey and southern-style dressing. Let the restaurant do the work while guests enjoy each other’s company.
The two-blocks walk back to The Presidents’ Quarters Inn is just long enough to revive you before indulging in that great American holiday pastime—watching football on the flat-screen television in your suite.
Presidents’ Quarters will present a complimentary, football-style “lite fare” supper on Thanksgiving evening instead of the more traditional wine and hors d’oeuvres — perfect for a hassle-free halftime break.
After breakfast at the inn on Friday, historic downtown Savannah awaits just outside the gates of Presidents’ Quarters. Shop boutiques and antique shops for Christmas or take a walking tour to explore world-famous architecture, house museums and art galleries. Visit Ellis Square near City Market and the new statue of legendary songwriter Johnny Mercer, a Savannah native. Discover the historic district’s Bull Street corridor, named one of the “Most Beautiful Places in America.”
Dine out Friday night at local favorites Alligator Soul -- where organic local and world cuisine meet -- or Cha Bella’s, which features farm-fresh Fall vegetables to compliment the entrees without stealing the show.
On Saturday morning, following an elegant breakfast at Presidents’ Quarters, say farewell to Savannah, returning home ahead of other holiday travelers after a no-fuss Thanksgiving. You’ll be rested and ready for the busy Christmas season.
