SAVANNAH Georgia — What is the unique attraction about the bed and breakfast here, Green Palm Inn?  Our Michigan native and innkeeper Diane McCray calls it the Softer Side of Savannah — a little Dixie-delightful lodging place (4-bedrooms).  Why did she moved here? “To get away from the snow!” Diane replies.

We serve up home cooked, coastal southern food laced with Savannah character-rich stories, and insider tips to little cozy places in town and small places worth the trip on the outskirts.

We adore and flaunt our connections to the waterfront. That legacy was started by two waterfront seamen who began our cottage’s happy story nearly 120 ago (circa 1897).

“If you have time to visit only one city in the Southeast, make it Savannah. It’s that special.” ~ Frommers Travel Guide.

We welcome travel and food writers, editors, and producers. Come ‘wallow’ in Savannah, as John Berendt did when writing his best selling novel, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.  Enjoy a crazy-lazy or crazy-busy morning — or two or three — in Savannah’s Historic City.

SPRING VACATION… Take a spring break!  We recommend that reservations be made months in advance.March, April and May are high season / peak vacation holidays in Savannah, Georgia. Springtime is when Savannah’s secret gardens, street landscapes, and historic district parks and squares are in full bloom.  Highlights of March include St. Patrick’s Day parade and Irish celebrations, Savannah Music Festival and Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens.  April’s Easter and Passover in Savannah are ways two of the best ways to tap the holiday spirit of The Sabbath, God’s Days visiting in Savannah historic churches and the Mickve Israel Synagogue — the 3rd oldest in America.

SUMMER VACATION equates to the best deal vacations and best vacation pricing … the best vacation spot in Georgia … in one of America’s best walkable cities!  And, travelers are only a 20-minute drive to Tybee Island beach, beach biking, the nostalgic boardwalk, celebrity dives / restaurants, Tybee Beach sunning and
Atlantic Ocean swimming.  Day trips to the Gullah culture on Daufauski Island, or Georgia outdoor odyssey adventures along the Georgia coast – bird watching, diving at Grey’s Reef, kayaking – make lazy days of summer on the Georgia Coast and a grand road trip for near-home adventures.

FALL VACATION on the Georgia Coast. Savannah is a beautiful paradise, without the large crowds of Savannah’s springtime.  Green Palm Inn’s extended Savannah deals on lodging pricing is through November. Don’t miss events in autumn include SCAD’s  Savannah Film Festival in October.

WINTER VACATION. A heavenly Savannah Christmas means “no snow”.  Typically the very temperate winter weather means Valentine’s Day picnics and strolls on Tybee Beach will be highlights.  Cozy Green Palm Inn was named on the “Top 10 B&Bs for the Holidays, 2011” list by BedandBreakfast.com.
