This was our second stay at the inn. The staff is very helpful and know their town very well. They did a great job of providing for special diet requirements. The location is amazing overlooking the park. Guest tend to be very friendly and interesting. This was a great break on the way to Orlando. Very relaxing.
Driving along and searching for a place to stay on my phone. They had one room left. Booked online -seamless . Welcomed with a smile, great service a crackling fire and glass of wine. At 8 pm there was tea and a little something sweet. Breakfast was delicious and generous. We didn't have one of the fancier upstairs rooms, but the down stairs room was huge with huge bathroom, excellent cleanliness, nice decor , comfortable mattress and pillows. Great breakfast . All staff were extremely friendly and helpful, Highly recommend it and we hope to come back soon.
We enjoyed our 3 night stay here. Service was excellent. Great location and very good atmosphere. Would love to come back but would not stay at Room 1 any more because of the location of the room being first one. Noise level in a morning did not let us sleep long and street traffic was a little too much. Would choose another room maybe facing courtyard.
We were only there for one night but the accommodations were great. An innkeeper came out to greet us when we drove up. She baked us cookies, showed us around, and was back the next morning to cooks us a sophisticated breakfast. I thoroughly recommend.
Rich in history, this home with a wonderful porch to sit a sip the happy hour wine and enjoy the view of the Forsyth Park was very relaxing. The back patio with a soothing fountain is also a great place to unwind after a long drive. Our room was very large, the queen bed comfy however the bathroom is ready for a fresh look to compete in this price range. Overall, we were greeted promptly, helped with our bags, had a lovely breakfast and enjoyed our stay.
Diane was wonderful! The food was great and the room was fabulous. There were snacks available all day. The furnishings in this bed and breakfast were outstanding. Location is fantastic. We even had off street parking.
Had an excellent one night stay at Green Palm Inn. Diane is a wonderful host - so knowledgeable about Savannah sights, eats, history - and she has her own great stories to tell about her own life also! Her cooking and baking was phenomenal - she needs to package and sell her cookies! The rooms were comfortable and clean. Only con was that in the morning you can hear the traffic on the road.
We stayed here for two nights, and this place exeeded all expectations. The propery is a lovely town house, full of history. The rooms are large and well kept. The service we received was outstanding. We will be back on our next visit to lovely Savannah.
This was our first time at an actual B&B. My girlfriend and I were stunned with how peaceful, beautiful, & perfect Dunham Farms was from beginning to end! Our Inn keeper(Becky) was more than kind and helpful with anything and everything we needed. It was such a wonderful place I proposed to my now Fiancé there and we will be planning to to have our wedding there in the near future aswell. We will definitely make this “our place” after the amazing experience we had there.
The staff couldn’t be more helpful. The rooms were charming and the location was amazing-right across from Forsyth Park with several play areas, a beautiful fountain and a nice place to grab a quick snack. The hotel offered a great, made to order breakfast. We loved spending time In the rocking chairs on the porch, sipping the complimentary sweet tea after a long day of exploring Savannah. We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely one-night stay. Easy parking, charming hostess, excellent bed, very good breakfast. The location is on the corner of the park, and close enough to downtown. Two things to be aware of. The stairs are steep and narrow. The claw-foot tub, while adding atmosphere, is not as nice in practice as in romantic fantasy. I understand why they keep them in historic houses, though.
Our stay at the Forsyth Park Inn was peaceful and relaxing. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable of all things Savannah! Breakfast was delicious and we had the option to eat on the veranda or in the dining-room. The evening hors d'oeuvres and night time treats were scrumptious! I enjoyed the fresh fruit infused ice water that is available in the entryway hall.
I had a fantastic, relaxing stay at Forsyth Park Inn. Dwayne, the Innkeeper, was so welcoming and very knowledgeable of the area. The rooms are spacious and the location can't be beat. I will definitely be back.
We had such a lovely time at the Forsyth Park Inn. Great Location, amenities were exceptional. Love the front porch brunch and evening cocktails. The staff were so personal and loved sharing the history of the house. I would make that my 1st choice when we return.
My wife of 52-yrs and I wanted to be within walking distance of sites within the historic district of Savannah. Forsyth Park Inn is perfectly located. The staff quickly charmed us with their southern hospitality and desire to make our stay memorable. During the evening we would sit on the balcony, sipping wine and listening to live music from across the street in Forsyth Park. Elegant, enchanting and mystical is how we would describe the Inn. Life is to short to not treat your self to the best.
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.
