I had a great experience here! Christie and Natalia were friendly and helpful and the house and rooms were wonderful. Their location is exceptional, with Lilly's Chambers looking directly out into Forsyth Park. This is a great home base location if you want to spend time in the park and walking through the beautiful historic neighborhoods.
It was such a luxurious staying in wonderful place. Christie was very kind and accurate for responding. I liked the room as soon as I entered because of such a refreshing smell. It was old but beautiful house with really clean and nicely-kept place. Always, I found a parking at the back with two other cars. Linens were fresh, towels also smelled good and nice quality, bed was very comfortable for sleeping, and bath tub and shower booth were separated and I felt so luxurious. Everything was wonderful, comfortable, refreshing, private and just fine staying. Refrigerator, TV, cups, coffee pot were in the room. Very comfy. I'd recommend this place highly.
Lilly's Chambers was exactly as described - awesome! What a treat to be able to stay in such a fantastic historic house in a wonderful location in Savannah, within walking distance of everything. The room has everything you need to be comfortable and Christie is a gracious host. We can't wait to come back and stay longer.
Christie was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Anytime we saw her she would ask if we needed anything but did not disturb us while we were in the room. The house was beautiful inside and out and Lilly's chambers was just like the pictures. The bed was comfy and the views of Forsyth Park were unbelievable! The porch was a great little spot to drink some coffee in the morning, or wine at night. I would highly recommend this room to anyone staying in Savannah!
Communication on reservation and arrival day was excellent. We felt welcomed but privacy was alway maintained - we never felt intrusive yet hosts were always reachable for any kind of help. The location is as perfect as you can get in Savannah; you feel like you are on the movie set of Old Savannah. The parking in back is a great convenience. It feels like a happy home and attention to detail is meticulous.
We were greeted at the door, and made to feel very welcomed in the house. The room had snacks and coffee, soap and shampoo, and movies, which we took advantage of given the rainy weather. The view from the windows overlooking Forsythe Park was gorgeous, and the room was equally so, and very comfortable. We loved it!

Hi! Traveling, music, and the ocean are three things that are near and dear to my heart. It is a blessing to live in such a beautiful city that is great to come home to, and I love sharing our little corner of Savannah with our guests. As a host, I use "the Golden Rule" and try to create an environment that I would want to be in as a guest. Cleanliness and comfort (i.e. nice towels and sheets) are always a priority. We are very flexible and do what we can to make each guest's stay as nice as possible and to make everyone feel at home.
