Foley House Inn History
Savannah's First Bed & Breakfast
a tradition of hospitality
The Foley House Inn history overflows with intrigue. Originally built by Owen and Honoria Foley in the late 1800s as a private home, the two early townhouses were later combined to form the original inn run by Mrs. Foley herself. Today, our bed-and-breakfast is still welcoming guests to Savannah, the Hostess City.
The Foley’s original homestead was the first actual Savannah bed & breakfast. The current Foley House was constructed over the ashes of a home destroyed by the Great Savannah Fire of 1889. Hence the Foley’s beginnings carried an ominous undertone.
Many consider our historic Savannah bed-and-breakfast as one of the most haunted buildings in Savannah. When you find human remains in the walls during renovations, you end up getting that reputation. That’s why the Foley House Inn history fascinates the mini travelers that we host.
