The staff wonderful and very attentive to details. Breakfast was everything a B&B should be. We stayed in the Egyptian Room, well appointed and the bed very comfy. The location was great. Just far enough to away from the river, yet still in the historic part. Over all, an wonderful stay.
We enjoyed our stay here - an interesting Inn with several connected historic buildings attached by back patios and 2nd floor deck. We walked everywhere from our location, on a lovely street, right on one of the squares.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Lane Cottage. All of the staff were very friendly and our made-to-order breakfast was delicious. And those nightly cookies were fabulous! There is no doubt that we will be back for another stay in the future.
We opted for the innkeeper special in which we do not pick our room and we are not guaranteed consecutive nights in the same room, but it all worked out well, we didn't have to move, and we had a great stay for a good value. We would come back again.
We stayed in one of their 'budget' rooms in the courtyard and it was still beautiful with nice furniture, a large comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. The breakfast was made to order in the morning and delicious. I'd stay here again the next time I am in Savannah.
Loved having breakfast on the back patio and enjoyed how private and quiet it was. We stayed in one of the two story places in the back of the main building and really enjoyed that a lot.
The Inn was recommended by a colleague, and it met every expectation. The place is a gem in an ideal location for exploring Savannah. The hospitality was excellent, our room was better than expected, the decor beautiful, and the food great. I highly recommend and will be returning here in the future.
We stay here every time we travel south. I love the location and the lovely accommodations. Breakfast is muffins, croissant, jam and fruit which my husband loves! They always have a nice bottle of wine ready and waiting. We feel safe all night and love the design district shopping right outside our door. I found treasure around the corner! Our dog is treated great and she finds Joan's delightful as well.
I gave this stay to my honey as he has never stayed at a B&B before (we're in our 60s). I have stayed in several, including Europe where I lived for 2 years. Azalea Inn tops them all. Not only was the property immaculate, the staff were more helpful than any concierge at a 5 star hotel I've ever stayed. They made us feel like we were honored guests in their beautiful home. I didn't want to leave. Should we need a place to stay anywhere near their property we will definitely choose them.
We stayed in the parlor room for our anniversary and it was the perfect romantic room. The Inn itself is so peaceful which is just what we wanted. We're history teachers so we loved all the historic memorabilia around. Great location; we brought bikes and were able to get around easily!
First real visit to Savannah (have passed through and kicked around for a day), but this was a 3 day Savannah only trip to enjoy the Christmas holiday and relax. The room was certainly relaxing. Slept well. Room was quiet, stayed in the Master suite. My wife and I were able to park car and not have to drive again until our departure. We had no problem finding parking on the street in front of the Inn though we had to move it once (to the other side of the street) due to a street cleaning ordinance. Breakfast was ver good. We had high expectations for this B&B and all were met or exceeded.
If you're looking for bright lights, glitzy, tourist jammed...this is not your place...but, if you're looking for old school, quaint, fantastic service...you need to try this place....easy walk to great restaurants and shops...I'm sure we'll stay again...
We had a lovely room with a rice carved bed and a view of the church towers and park. Our breakfast was wonderful, and we chose to sit on the open porch where we Chatted with other guests.
I combined a stay at Dunham Farms with their Christmas Illumination Night gathering. This was a surprise for my significant other to start the Christmas season. Let's just say she was thrilled and my expectations were far exceeded! Absolutely magical evening and stay! The B&B is wonderful! Full of low country charm. So peaceful and quite. We had a wonderful sunrise view of the river, right through the windows of our room! The staff is equally warm and charming. We will definitely return! Looking forward to visiting during warmer weather for some kayaking!
Our family and two dogs came to Savannah for the holiday historical house tours. The accommodations were confortable and perfect for our needs. Breakfast was continental, and a perfect start for our day. It was very conveniently located and having off street parking was great. Joan is a wonderful host, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A bottle of wine, fresh fruits, and dog treats were waiting for us, and we used them all! Thank you, Joan!
Such a wonderful stay. My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with the Forsyth Park Inns staff. They really made our stay special. The appetizers at night while sitting on the porch was the perfect way to end a beautiful day in a beautiful city. We will definitely return to the Forsyth Park Inn.
My wife and I traveled to Dunham farms for our 5th wedding anniversary. We needed some down time and a lot of relaxation and this was the place. First impression driving on to the property was breath taking, the farther on the property we went the more excited we became. We literally felt like we left the modern day world at the gate. The rooms are excellent nothing more than what we needed, had amazing views, were extremely clean and were perfectly comfortable. The views on the property you just have to see for yourself. We ended up being the only 2 staying that weekend and thought we might get shorted, we didn't we felt pampered. Scott cooked an amazing breakfast both mornings and talked to us like we were old friends. We met the owners but I don't recall their names but were great! Its a small drive from Savannah but its worth the drive for the relaxation. We highly recommend and so long to make a trip back. This is honestly the first vacation I've left from and felt relaxed but so sad knowing we had to go back to being adults!!! Thank you Dunham Farms Staff!!
Everything was as expected. Service very good. Breakfast slightly under B&B, but still good Rooms were nice, and a good courtyard for privacy. Close to all there was to see, as it is outside of touristy River area, but only a few minutes away, and very residential. Only disruption was a couple of early bird ladies cackling too loud at 6:00 AM
This was a last minute booking so we didn't know what to expect. We were warmly greeted by CL. She showed us where we would be eating breakfast and then took us to our room. We walked into the Jackson suite--it was lovely! The suite was decorated with Victorian pieces. The bedroom opened up to the courtyard where we had an afternoon wine and cheese. The location was very convenient to all the sights. I should also mention Chef and Jeremy. Chef prepared a delicious breakfast and Jeremy made sure we had everything we needed. It was a wonderful stay. We can't wait to return!
This was my first experience staying in a B & B, so I was a little hesitant. However, once I arrived I was blown away! Ms Pam, the receptionist was a "breath of fresh air!" Upon arrival she explained pertinent information, made sure parking was secured for my car, then took me to the building where my room was located. Breakfast was cooked to order . . MOST EXCELLENT! I felt right at home. This B & B has an excellent location; just park your car and let your feet do the walking to all the historical sights.
A beautiful place in the historic district. The place was perfect for a romantic get away. The place was clean and absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Carriage House which was the perfect townhouse style house. The kitchen was on the bottom with the bedroom and bathroom on the second floor. It was wonderful to come back to yummy dessert and wine, that just made the stay. The incredible breakfast was prepared by Monique and was absolutely beautiful and incredible tasting. We will most certainly be back soon! Thanks for the great stay!
There is a level of hospitality here that we have seen in few other properties. The Chatham Suite is a charming, two story historic townhouse, meticulously restored, beautifully and comfortably furnished, in a quiet residential neighborhood in historic Savannah. It is like staying in a friend's home. Lovely amenities, including luxurious bedding, beautiful decorative accents and artwork, and cozy bathrobes. We were spoiled by delicious gourmet breakfast brought each morning, and special treats in the refrigerator each day. Monique and her staff made us feel welcome and pampered.
Descubre Savannah, la ciudad de los fantasmas
La ciudad de Savannah es la mayor y también la más antigua del estado de Georgia. Fue fundada en 1733 junto con la colonia de Georgia y se convirtió, unos años después, en la capital de la Colonia Real de Georgia. Conocida como “la ciudad anfitriona del Sur”, por la tradicional hospitalidad de los habitantes del sur de los Estados Unidos, recibe cada año la visita de millones de turistas. Es además famosa por sus fantasmas, tanto como puede serlo Salem, en Massachusetts. Las historias paranormales se remontan en esta ciudad a sus mismos inicios, y los incidentes documentados son numerosos.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Savannah
Entre los cinco distritos históricos de la ciudad se cuentan 22 plazas, cada una asociada a un momento distinto de la historia, y a lo largo de toda la ciudad hay varias iglesias y sinagogas, además de viviendas históricas en perfecto estado de conservación. Probablemente la más famosa sea la Mercer House, principal localización de la novela “Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal”, convertida hoy en un museo. En el centro histórico de la ciudad se conserva un cementerio de la época colonial y a no mucha distancia del centro se encuentran varios fuertes que sirvieron para la defensa de la ciudad durante la guerra civil estadounidense. El antiguo Cotton Exchange, construido en 1887, es de obligada visita. Antiguamente era el lugar en el que se llevaban a cabo todas las transacciones comerciales del algodón sureño, y lugar de partida y llegada de esta carga; su visita, junto con el recorrido por el Historic Riverfront Park es toda una experiencia.

Eventos destacados en Savannah
El evento anual más destacado de la ciudad es la celebración el 17 de marzo del día de San Patricio, con una fiesta de carnaval (la segunda mayor del país) que puede recordar al Mardi Gras que se celebra cada año en Bourbon Street en Nueva Orleans.
