SAVANNAH Georgia — Savannah storytelling, a good story with colorful details, is legendary and celebrated at this small Georgia inn.

“I began to realize I wasn’t getting very deeply into anything I was writing about. In order to get deeply — to wallow — in a topic, I knew I’d have to write a book.” – John Berendt, speaking of his novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

For your own unbelievable holiday in Georgia, we invite you too — “Come ‘wallow’ in Savannah”, beginning at our little Georgia inn.  Then, during your visit, don’t be surprised if you should inquire over lunch or dinner, “Tell me about Savannah,” that a local college-student waiter might drag up a chair, join you and begin Savannah storytelling. A good story with colorful background is celebrated here, and the joys of sharing are oh-so Savannah!

Green Palm Inn is delighted to host food editors and travel writers, and producers on assignment.

AT GREEN PALM INN, FARM FRESH COMES FULL CIRCLE IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA (1733 – 2013). Tenants on essential vegetable farm lands in 1733 to tenants serving farm fresh produce in the 21st Century. — Historically in Savannah, Georgia’s colonial years, the lands of the two seamen cottages (now Green Palm Inn) would have been planted in Georgia colony rice fields and essential vegetable farms after being cleared of pine forests that were noted in colonial botanist William Bartram’s Travels. We think the botanists at Trustees Garden, the test garden in the fledgling British colony of Georgia in Savannah, would be delighted in the upturn in gardening 280 years later. Green Palm Inn is three walking blocks to lands of Trustees Garden.  The inn used farm fresh as much as practical.

SOUTHERN B&B INNKEEPER SAYS, “CHIME RATHER THAN CLICK INTO SOCIAL AND DIGITAL MEDIA. MAKE SOME NOISE!” Mousey maneuvering won’t work. —  “We have a big southern welcome waiting at ‘little’ Green Palm Inn,” announces innkeeper Diane McCray in a 3-minute travel video that introduces the historic inn in downtown Savannah, Georgia. “Social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and FoodSpotting give our little cottage inn fresh ways to make some noise — to stay involved in fast-paced communications in the tourism industry, interacting with local to national media, and interacting with the public who make our business bustle,” states the aunt-like hospitality professional.
