I had the pleasure of staying in the two-bedroom apartment of the Galloway House and cannot tell you how fantastic it was. Jim and Keith are fabulous hosts, the apartment was beautifully appointed and exceedingly comfortable, and talk about location, location, location! Restaurants within walking distance, Forsyth Park 9 blocks up, easy access to freeways to go elsewhere. There is a lovely verandah in the front and secluded gardens in the back. The proprietors have even gone so far as to provide bicycles for those who wish to tool about town. The continental breakfast was perfect with muffins, bagels, coffee, tea, cream cheese, orange juice and such - all very fresh.
For those of you with dogs, I had a pup with me and the home was well suited for dogs. There is plenty of room to walk them to "do their business" and if you walk with your dogs around the various squares or parks of Savannah, you will see that the entire town is dog friendly to the point of making sure the dogs have drinking fountains as nice as the human ones! Jim and Keith do ask that you don't let your dogs on the furniture, which, once you see the lovely pieces, you will understand. I could not imagine trying to get short dog fur out of velvet - yikes! They do offer old sheets to protect the furniture if you cannot resist, but it was not a problem for my dog - she was very happy luxuriating on the oriental rugs that are well padded and feel like clouds beneath your feet.
I ended up having to stay longer than anticipated and Jim and Keith were very helpful not only in finding a way to accommodate me longer, but then in finding an alternate location for me. Unfortunately, they were fully booked, but recommended another option that worked out super well. You can't ask for more helpful hosts who are truly interested in their guest's comfort. The only way this could have been better would have been for a lady's maid to serve me breakfast in bed!
This is a super place and I cannot recommend it enough. I will definitely make every effort to visit again when in Savannah. It was like a home away from home.
