This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We stayed for the Rock and Roll Savannah Half Marathon in the James Oglethorpe room. The room was a good size and the bathroom was great. They did a good job adding the bathrooms, they are updated and roomy.... More

We had never stayed at a B&B before, so were apprehensive. The staff and the house made us feel right at home. Breakfast was top notch . Loved to sit on the spacious front porch, especially the morning it was Raining. Nice happy hour that we got to know some of the other folks from around the country.

The house is nice and in a great location. On a quiet street, very near Forsyth park and within walking distance of all the main attractions.
