Tour Hidden Gardens in the Historic District of Savannah

April 22, 2015 by Teresa Jacobson

This past weekend, The Garden Club of Savannah celebrated the 40th Anniversary of it’s Tour of Hidden Gardens.  Visitors were granted access to eight private gardens throughout the Historic District as well as the Massie Heritage Center Gardens.  The gardens ranged from expansive green space to small courtyards all brimming with beautiful native garden species and unique decor.   Just in case you missed it, we took pictures all along the way to share with you.

The Platt Garden – East Hall Street
The Platt Garden has generous private green space in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District.  A massive oak offers shade to the entire garden and reaches out over the sidewalk down Hall Street.

The Murse/Kern Garden – East Huntington Street
Cherokee Roses drap the gate at the entrance of the Murse/Kern garden.  Recent renovations to this garden include a beautiful fountain and built-in brick planters.  We found a mother robin nesting in a potted lemon tree.

The Mastrianni/Hester Garden – East Gaston Street
A sculpture bought by the homeowners while on vacation in Europe is the centerpiece of this small courtyard garden.  The art hangs above a mostly edible garden while colorful trumpet honeysuckle covers the wall of the garden.

The Russell Garden – East Gordon Street
The Russell Garden got our vote for the most beautiful entrance.  Brick columns in an iron fence covered in greens sets the stage for the lush drama of the garden within.   A beautiful brick patio takes you through an arbor to a pond with a sculpture and fountain surrounded by bamboo.  It’s so lush, you feel like you’ve stepped into a jungle.

The Chastulik Garden – West Gordon Street

Every step of the way through the garden and pathways of the Chastulik garden had fun garden treasures to see.  We only scratched the surface with the photos.  Walkways through two different patio area leads you to an open garden with a swimming pool.  Two stories of screened in porches overlook this incredible space filled with enchanting creatures, decor, and planters.  We weren’t surprised to see a plaque from Hidden Garden Tours of years past throughout the garden.

The Bolch garden is designed with walkways around two fountains and a patio with a stunning Italian white marble sculpture.

Call Today for Dinner & A Room Special: The Easiest Savannah Valentine You Will Ever Plan!

January 21, 2015 by Teresa Jacobson

Celebrate Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Made Easy. One quick call does it all.

Savannah Dinner and Room Valentine Special:

Valentine’s Made Easy, not Stressful

When I was a child Valentine’s was made easy, not stressful. We cut out paper hearts, for everyone. We gave out tiny candy hearts with sweet little inscriptions such as “Be Mine” or “Hug Me”. Not quite that simple anymore, is it? It should be. So we took a poll. A really informal poll that you won’t find on “The View” or “Good Morning America.” Because we had a simple idea – a fabulous dinner with complete strangers who all have one thing in common – Love.

We asked: Are you ready to break all the old Valentine Rules. We asked: Are you brave enough to cast aside the box of chocolates and expensive roses? We proposed: to every person in love, or falling in love, or forgot you were in love, or finally figured out that’s is is okay to love yourself. We proposed: Dinner with Perfect Strangers. We proposed: Love refined on a non-traditional February 12. We proposed: With a room – a really sumptuous, silken, sensual room, with a decadent, delightful, divine breakfast. You responded: That would be awesome. You responded: Now that’s Livin! You responded: Sounds like a perfect dream. You said YES!!!!

In your honor we present Dinner & A Room*, available one night only – February 12, 2015. (We thought Friday the 13th was just so opposite of the ambiance of Love). With one phone call (912-236-6080) your Valentine plans are complete. We have paired dinner at three price points with the priced decided by the room you choose: $299, $329 or $389, plus tax and gratuity. Your Dinner & A Room special starts with Champagne on and a carefully chosen card for your Valentine (and you). A four-course chef’s prix fixe dinner with perfectly paired wines with seating at 6 pm. A night a restorative sleep in one of our time capsules (we’ll explain during dinner) and then, breakfast perfectly prepared for you.  We’ve done everything we can to lift you back into the cocoon called love that shields us all from the arrows of everyday life. Whether you take the day off from work or decide to head to the office with a glow – that’s up to you.

No matter who you’re spending Valentine’s Day with this year, dare to be different, and try something new. Celebrate LOVE with Azalea Inn & Villas! Join us for our fabulous Dinner & A Room Special!
