The inn dates from 1897 and was originally two Victorian cottages, built for seamen captains Samuel House and N. B. Sison. The new construction of 546 and 548 East President Street is verified on insurance maps dated 1898. Historical records also show that tenants lived in the property through much of the mid to late 1900s. The building was fully restored in 1998 as a family owned bed and breakfast - the restoration combined the two cottages into one building, giving us the unique building that exists today.
Located in Savannah’s Historic District, the privately owned Green Palm Inn is just steps away from serene Greene Square. Situated in a village-like setting, the square is one of the 22 celebrated public garden parks in James Oglethorpe’s unique Town Plan, now world famous among urban city planners.
Today the Green Palm Inn is decorated with British-Colonial furnishings, with accents of palm trees in the décor, reflecting upon both Savannah’s British roots and its subtropical climate. Guest are welcomed with luxurious bedding, comfortable relaxing areas, and home-cooked breakfasts, desserts, and hors-d'oeuvres. And of course, complimentary wine in the afternoon.
Innkeepers Angela and Rob are originally from England and have lived in the USA for over twenty-five years. After suffering too many mid-west winters, we decided to relocate to beautiful historic Savannah, where we took over the Green Palm Inn. We fell in love with it on our visit and are sure you will too.
We look forward to welcoming guests from all parts of the world and sharing our wonderful Savannah home. Along with our fantastic staff, Priscilla and Nicole, we aim to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
We also cannot forget to mention the previous innkeeper, the wonderful Diane McCray, who looked after the Inn for many years before us. It is a tribute to her that the inn has so many returning guests. We wish her well in her deserved retirement.
