This spectacular Italianate townhouse was built in 1876 for cotton merchant Henry Dresser and Samuel Palmer, who ran the largest hardware store in Savannah. It is now one of the most appealing B&Bs in the city. Its beautiful ironwork porch, where you can sip coffee in the morning, is matched by a soothing garden, patio, and koi pond at the back. Rooms are spacious and decked out in an elegant 19th-centuty style (the charming “waltz out” windows allow you to exit the room straight to the patio), but this is another place especially recommended for foodies. Breakfasts are gourmet events prepared by skilled chefs, accompanied by fresh pastries made on the premises, and the afternoon wine and cheese features quality styles and brands. The house is 1 block from Forsyth Park, in a quiet residential neighborhood.
