Your Innkeepers

Local, knowledgeable and there to make your stay as relaxing and memorable as possible

Meet Anna

Anna was born in Fairbanks, Alaska but grew up in Marietta, Georgia, just north of Atlanta. Her family often vacationed in Savannah and after completing culinary school in Raleigh, North Carolina, she moved to Savannah in August of 2001. Her parents, already living in the city, had recently purchased what was once Magnolia Place Inn, located in the historic district. After working at a large chain hotel and for a local caterer, Anna joined her parents in the Savannah bed and breakfast business most recently assisting to run a nearby 16-room inn.

Anna has lived in the historic district for the past 12 years and knows it like the back of her hand. She looks forward to helping you make the most of your time in Savannah and your stay at the Justine Inn.

Meet Karen

Karen, a retired military officer, high school teacher, and Tea Room restaurateur, was born in the states and raised all over the U.S. and Europe. Her last abode before landing in Savannah was Southern California where she owned and operated a tea room for twenty years after retiring from the United States Air Force. As a restaurateur she catered, planned special events, and was known for her fabulous historic themed tea parties. Affectionally called the Tea lady, she was often asked to lecture and educate about the delights of tea.

Karen is an amazing baker who specializes in English style scones – orange cranberry is a requested favorite. She calls the historic district home where she is passionate about the local culture and history.  In her spare time, Karen serves as a Docent at one of Savannah’s historic homes. She is happy to recommend favorite eateries, historic tours, and fun things to do.
