The Catherine Ward House is located on a quiet street in the Victorian District one half block from magnificent Forsyth Park (known for its formal gardens, elegant fountain, civil war monuments, open spaces, public tennis and basketball courts).

You will find Historic District shopping, restaurants, museums, and over 250 years of history are within a few minutes stroll. We offer a host of unique ideas and stand ready to make your stay in Savannah memorable.

The Catherine Ward House is one of the most elegant and comfortable inns in Savannah. Each of our nine specially appointed guestrooms has either a queen or a king size bed and its own private bath with shower. A couple of baths have a two person Jacuzzi and one room even has a two-person shower. 

All of the rooms have beautiful old fireplaces and mantles. In some rooms, the fireplaces still work and in others, we have allowed them to retire. 

Most rooms open onto porches and balconies leading to our quiet, green courtyard with a fishpond and fountain. 

All of our rooms have complimentary robes and hair dryers for you to use during your stay. There is cable television, a small refrigerator with free water and soda, free WiFi, and CD/clock radios in every room.
