About the Gastonian
A four-diamond, award-winning bed and breakfast inn, voted by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top 50 B&Bs in the world, The Gastonian truly is the most luxurious of the Savannah historic bed and breakfast inns. Set in a residential neighborhood on Gaston Street near Forsyth Park, The Gastonian is known for its intimate atmosphere, authentic antiques, grand décor, and charming hospitality.
The Gastonian is comprised of two adjacent mansions, both of which were built in 1868. Constructed of local handmade bricks, the mansions feature white stucco in clean-lined Regency Italianate style. The freestanding house at 220 East Gaston Street was built for Savannah insurance broker R. H. Footman, and the one next door, 218 East Gaston Street, was built for wholesale grocer Aaron Champion.
Situated on the corner of Gaston and Lincoln Street, The Gastonian's location is integral to its appeal, offering guests a wonderful place to stay that is both charmingly residential and central to Savannah's popular historic sites. Guests of The Gastonian experience the unique charm and sophistication of an elegant historic Savannah home.
