Located in the historic district of Savannah, The Kehoe house was built in 1892 and has been extensively restored while retaining the vaulted ceilings and historic feel of this former family home.

Wine, hors d’eovres, made-to-cook breakfast and homemade biscotti are just a couple more reasons to stay here for a romantic escape.
