Our hostess was very accommodating in all our needs and was very understanding when we arrived later then we had anticipated. It was great having our two little poodles with us. The view from our balcony was amazing and our room was cozy and comfortable. Savannah has stolen my heart and I know I will be back again to take in all her beauty. I can't thank you enough Christie, for making this one of our favorite vacations. The Kastner family.
Everything was perfect! We had such an amazing time staying in Lilly's Chambers...the room is large and comfortable with big bay windows looking out onto Forsyth Park. There was a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room with coffee, creamer and sugar...and a balcony perfect for sitting outside and Forsyth Park people watching. It was really great not having to worry about parking also. The location was fantastic...we just walked everywhere to see the Savannah sites.
Christie was the perfect host. Open Communication from start to finish. The room was great. It had everything you could need. Beautifully decorated. The view of Forsyth Park was an added bonus.
I never met Christie but her business partner Natalia was very welcoming and gracious. She even carried my heavy suitcase up the stairs for me. The crowning glory of this place is the beautiful bathtub (be sure to take advantage of the bubbles and salts hidden under the cabinet). The bed and linens were heavenly and I loved having control of my own thermostat. They have a couple friendly cats. My only complaints are the terrible coffee and the road noise. If you are a light sleeper this may be a problem. There have been a couple updates to the decor, including the replacement of the couch in the photo with a nesting dining set, a remodeled shower, and some different patio furniture.
Overall a lovely place in a fabulous location. I'd stay again for sure (but I would go across the street for my coffee hehe).
The location of this B&B was very convenient. It was right next to Forsythe Park and close to other activities that we wanted to partake in. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. We were very comfortable during our stay. The city itself is beautiful and loaded with Southern charm. Be sure to have lunch at Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House.
We had a one night stay and it was lovely. We were welcomed by Christie and Natalia and felt at home in this large beautiful home. The room is as described and you can't beat the view of the park. The bed and linens were comfortable. This room does face a fairly busy road so for a light sleeper an interior room may be a better option. This is a good location to see the park and walk through the squares to the river or city market which are about a mile away. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.
Lilly's Chambers exceeded all of my expectations. My girlfriend and I loved this room and we plan to return annually. It was beyond relaxing and for most of our time there it felt like we had the whole house to ourselves. Christie was very prompt in responding to me after I text her upon arrival. Here partner Natalia was there to greet us and made us feel right at home. A must for any stop in Savannah.

About the Host, Christie
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.
