Memorial Day Weekend in Savannah at our bed and breakfast is always a time for us to honor our deep connections to the military.
Innkeeper Teresa Jacobson hails from a military background and so she holds the men and women in our armed forces very dear.
While it’s a somber holiday, we keep in mind that those men and women who died while serving our country deserve a celebration of their lives, their service.
So, celebrate we did. It’s no wonder that Memorial Day is such a day for celebrating. We are honoring so many lives, so much bravery…
Memorial Day Weekend in Savannah
This weekend our 10 B&B rooms were PACKED with fun-loving vacationers, some visiting Savannah for the first time. All celebrating those who lost their lives serving our country.
The Summer Season is Bookended with Military Holidays
We think it appropriate that the 2 holidays that honor our military are the bookends of the summer season. From the last Monday each May (Memorial Day) to Veterans Day on November 11 the lazy days of summer are upon all of us.
At Azalea, we’re anything but lazy. We’re helping our guests plan their vacation in Savannah so that it ends up as the most perfect experience that they can imagine. We’re coming up with new recipes so that every 3-course breakfast, every hors d’ oevre hour is memorably delightful, delicious and absolutely intoxicating to the senses.

August 26, 2010 Savannah, GA – Hundreds of Bed and Breakfasts are providing free rooms on Wednesday, November 10th, in observance of Veterans Day (November 11) to honor men and women currently serving in the military, as well as those who have served their country in the past. Over 200 inns in 39 states and Canada have donated rooms for this holiday promotion.
The program was started in 2009 by the West Virginia B&B Association. “We just wanted to say thank you to the courageous men and women from our armed forces”, says Kathleen Panek, owner of the Gillum House in Shinnston, West Virginia and originator of the concept. “These are trying times for anyone serving or who has served and a good night’s rest is our way to say, thank you.”
Azalea Inn and Gardens in Savannah, Georgia is taking part in a special Veterans Day celebration. “This is the best way for us to honor our country’s military members”, says Teresa Jacobson, owner of the Azalea Inn and Gardens. “Not enough people realize what our servicemen and women face on a day-to-day basis, in addition to those who have already put their lives on the line for our country. As a former member of the Armed Services myself, we are happy to participate in this unique celebration of Veterans Day.” Her husband, Mike, adds “Teresa’s father and grandfathers served in the world wars and would be proud that we show our respect for their sacrifices, so we have pledged ten rooms to our veterans on November 10.”
Bed and breakfast inns are smaller hospitality businesses that offer a more personal touch than standard motels or hotels. All rooms have private bathrooms, comfortable beds, and beautifully decorated areas for relaxation or conversation. Known for their great breakfasts and personalized service, B&Bs are a perfect way to enhance a getaway.
Reservations need to be made directly with the participating inns. A valid military or Veterans Administration ID will be required for each reservation. Each participating Bed and Breakfast is making at least one room available on the night of November 10 and availability is limited to a first come first serve basis.
