More About Our "Painted Lady" Mansion

Lovely Victorian Homes painted in multiple layers are often referred to as Painted Ladies -- Queen Anne and Gingerbread style houses that are the showy peacocks of architecture to rival that of San Francisco and New Orleans.

  • Our historic Victorian inn offers to guests a peak into life of bygone eras.
  • The historic Victorian inn is located on the corner of Habersham and Gaston streets -- canopied with moss-draped, towering oak trees, and two of the most scenic streets in the downtown Savannah historic district.
  • This Queen Anne Victorian mansion was the home of Tomlinson F. Johnson in 1888. At the time Mr. Johnson was manager of the Savannah Theatre, now America’s oldest theatre in continual operation.
  • Built in the period from 1895 to 1920 -- an era of expansion and growth in Georgia -- the Victorian architecture showcases a colorful period of the rebounding "New South" following the Civil War.

Also on the National Registry of Historic Places and offerings some of the best examples of post-Civil War Victorian architecture in the country, the Victorian District is locate just south of Gwinnett Street from the Savannah Historic District. 

History Vacations with Storytelling

Certainly, the ambiance of this favorite Victorian Savannah inn will enhance historical vacations in Savannah (founded in 1733). In addition to history storytelling, for posterity and for each guest, we have tried to preserve the history of the past and fill our historic home with a number of beautiful antiques.  These treasures exude reminders of the days gone by. 

The beauty of this historic bed and breakfast inn is found also in the 12 original fireplaces, the sitting and dining parlors, and Victorian porches. The charming bricked courtyard and gardens offer living spaces out of doors to enjoy Savannah’s temperate weather.

  • Notable at our historic inn are beautiful 118-year-old mosaic tiled floor. Walking through the double door entrance, we believe you will be immediately impressed.
  • The elegant stairway and natural woodwork throughout the historic breakfast inn have been preserved.
  • “During our on-going updates to this beautiful home, Jane replicated and painted the floor pattern along the wall. It is our way of showing our appreciation for the artisan talents of long ago,” says Rocky Reed.
