House and room have a lot of character. The Ansley Palmer room was well-appointed with antiques. The balcony and gas fireplace added to the relaxing atmosphere. The folks who run it could not have been more helpful in providing recommendations for dinners and sightseeing. Highly recommend.

This bed and breakfast absolutely blew us away. My mother and I stayed at the Dresser Palmer for 2 nights and wished we never had to leave. As soon as we entered the house, we were satisfied. Of course, we're in Savannah, so the house was stunning, but really it took our breath away. We walked up to the small...

My husband and I had a terrific experience at the Dresser Palmer. We especially recommend the room we stayed in: the Emma Kelly room.
