I used this B & B as a Savannah get-away to spend time with my mother 3/19 and 3/20/2013 and we were quite pleased. The new innkeeper, a young woman who loves to cook (and CAN cook!), was very friendly and so accommading to all our needs. Dinner reservations and complimentary pick up at the Dresser/Palmer House for the city...

Hi Christine P, Thanks for the praises! We all love to cook for our guests here at the inn. In fact, I just pulled out a fresh banana cake I'm getting ready to slather with browned butter cream cheese icing for today's treat... If it even makes it to the guests. ;-) We are always glad to share our recipes...

Beautiful house, in a great location, with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The breakfasts were delicious! Lots to see and do in the area, but cozying up inside is nice as well. Right near a lovely park, and everything you would want to do is in reasonable walking distance. We would definitely go back. I'd like to come when...

Stayed here March 11-12, 2013. A wonderful place to stay to immerse yourself in Old Savannah! Enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, and the afternoon hors d'oeuvres. (Thanks for the recipe, Kolin!) The atmosphere was low-key and comfortable, with an underlying elegance. We would have loved to stay longer, and will definitely visit again! Missing those front porch rocking chairs!

What's not to love at the Dresser Palmer House? Long before we got there, we were being made to feel special by Leslie, the Dresser-Palmer's most able Innkeeper extraordinaire.

I have actually never stayed in a b&b before. I figured Savannah is the place to try it. It was way better!
