Welcome to The Inn at 909 Lincoln in historic Savannah Georgia. Built in 1896 the Inn at 909 Lincoln was once called home to the Entelman family. Once an Irish and Jewish neighborhood, the neighborhood circa 1950-1960 transitioned to that of African-American.

 

Today the neighborhood around Forsyth Park is home to people from all walks of life. Savannah's College of Art and Design distributed throughout the historic district and mid-town areas of Savannah through its nearly 300 owned-operated properties has brought outside influences from other regions of the United States, Canada and Europe. The surrounding neighborhood and adjacent Thomas Square is home to a growing number of Bohemian eateries utilizing locally grown produce with gourmet flair.

 

Top five restaurants, Elizabeth's on 37th and Local Eleven 10 are just a minute's stroll away. The Mansion Hotel's upstairs bar gives affordable food overlooking Forsyth Park during the weekends and offers live music. The nearby Sentient Bean written up in the NY Time serves robust coffee to a very Bohemian crowd reminiscent of the Netherlands; and its next door neighbor the Brighter Day Market serves up the best non-preservative put together sandwich you've ever put in your mouth! Farmers' Markets are held Saturday in the Park.

 

The Georgia Historical Society conveniently on the NW end of the park is open for a small fee to research historic Savannah entities, or for no entry fee you might merely stop in to view and purchase historic picture books and cards not found on the tourist paths.

The Inn at 909 Lincoln sits at the southern bookend of Historic Savannah, while the Savannah River and River Street serve as the northern end. Just two blocks east of Forsyth Park, the Inn is one and a half blocks from Johnny Mercer's childhood home on Gwinnet Street and a transforming Kroger Market {convenient eats.} Antique stores of interest in the neighborhood are Alex Raskin and Steele Magnolia, with several others in nearby Thomas Square.

 

The Inn through guidance from Atlanta's Historic Preservation Department {espoused under the Federal Park Department} was carefully returned to its turn of the century Victorian elegance.

 

Original twelve foot ceilings, natural wood chair rail, wainscoting, baseboard and tongue and groove flooring were are repaired. Double hung sashes are fitted with restoration glass brought in from Germany. The lead glass affect distorts all the vivid jewel colors of the Inn's interior as seen from outside in the evening. Venturing out by day, one only needs to walk to the north end of Forsyth Park to visit the Mercer Williams House {as seen in the movie 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'}; or Savannah's oldest Synagogue open to all for prayer on Saturday.

 

Nearby Mrs. Wilke's Boarding House is the place to break bread during the week alongside complete and utter strangers. The Design district encompasses the historic treats on the northern end of the Park.

"If I could give Elaine and this lovely Inn 100 stars I would. I literally have NEVER enjoyed a place as much and I have lived in three of the four corners of this country and vacationed from Santa Barbara to the Hamptons to the mountains of Pennsylvania, Florida, and Mexico. Our anniversary was something I know I'll remember 'till the day I die. Elaine is a very special, talented and interesting person who I will think of as a friend always."
