The Dresser Palmer House will forever hold a special place in my heart. Upon arriving to the Dresser Palmer House, I had contacted the staff to let them know that I would love to propose to my girlfriend in Savannah. Leslie, a former event planner, suggested I propose on the back verandah of the Dresser Palmer House amidst the beautiful...

My sister and I stayed at Dresser House this past week and our stay was everything I had hoped it would be. True southern hospitality, the staff are all terrific, in fact when we left some clothes behind they contacted us and since we were, by that time three hours away, they offered to ship them home. I especially enjoyed...

Dear Linda773, We were glad to have met you! Savannah has some of the South's premier dining. Most all dining establishments here use fresh and local ingredients that are bountiful here in the low-country. Fresh shrimp, crab, flounder, and oysters are abundant here in coastal Georgia. We can't wait to have you back for more adventures! From all of us...

Simply amazing B & B. We have stayed at many over the last 30 years and this is one of the best. Friendly people, beautiful house and yummy food ! The location of the house is perfect as Savannah is a "walking" city you are in a nice residential area and off the beaten path of the busy street traffic.

We love the DPH. The front porch and back gardens/verandas and wisteria draped iron are magical enough. But inside is something real, authentic & unpretentious yet grand.
