The 17Hundred90 Inn is one of the most haunted hotels in Savannah. The hotel is home to one of the most active ghosts in the city.
So, if you want to spend the night with a ghost, book 17Hundred90’s room 204. The room is home to the spirit known as Anna, who, in life, jumped out of the window, ending her life over a lost love.
Guests have reported being nudged. They also feel like someone is lightly touching their face. Other people have noticed that their belongings moved from one side of the room to the other. Could it be someone who is cleaning their room? Or could it be the ghost of Anna?
The hotel is also home to other ghosts, including a young boy named Thaddeus. He is often spotted on the ground floor near the tavern. If you see a shiny penny lying on a table at the bar, chances are it was put there by the young spirit.

The Kehoe family built the Kehoe House, a stunning Queen Anne-style mansion, in 1892. Unfortunately, the Kehoe family suffered the loss of two of their children after the twins were playing in a chimney when a tragic accident occurred that resulted in their deaths.
The Kehoe House is one of Savannah’s most elegant bed and breakfasts and is a treat to spend the night. The hotel is thought to be haunted by the Kehoe twins. The twins are often heard running down the hotel’s hallways, making as much noise as possible.
They are said to spend a lot of time haunting rooms 201 and 203. Guests who have stayed in the rooms have seen the ghostly spirits of children standing over them before disappearing into thin air. The thought of that sends chills up my spine!
Other ghostly activities that happen at the Kehoe House include locked doors opening on their own. There are also creepy disembodied voices of children and weird lights appearing in the windows.
So, if you don’t mind the idea of ghostly children, then I highly recommend spending the night at the Kehoe House Bed and Breakfast. Let me know if you have any ghostly experiences, please!
