The Garden Suite apartment on Forsyth Park is located in a prime area of Savannah. Everything about the apartment itself is top-notch - comfortable bed, fully appointed kitchen, enormous bathroom, and elegant décor. Kim and Brett have brought in modern amenities to their renovation while preserving the original 1880’s brickwork and huge double mahogany doors. The garden is quintessential Savannah with lovely plantings, statuary and water features. The apartment is air/humidity controlled (NO musty smell!). Its proximity to Forsyth Park (Savannah’s largest square) is an advantage as you can take an early morning jog around it and see the famous fountain, then stop at the organic food market on the way back. No need for a car here! We walked to the visitor center and took the Freedom Trail tour (recently featured in the NY Times Travel section) and then to the wharf (we took the paddlewheel boat cruise and learned about Savannah’s past and present industrial base – and heard some true (?) pirate stories). We walked every one of Savannah’s 26 squares. One of our favorite food experiences was at the Olde Pink House (lunch – same menu, less expensive, plus docents are available while you tour the house – make sure you tour the basement!). We also went to Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room for an authentic Southern meal served family style. We were advised to arrive around 1pm on a Wed. The wait was only about 15 minutes. Make sure to chat up the folks in front and behind you in line as these will be your dining companions. The food (so many different dishes!) tasted delicious to our “low sodium” sensibilities. (Note: much of the food in Savannah is heavily salted – we omit mentioning the other restaurants where we dined for that reason.) The Garden Suite should be on the top of your list for an authentic Savannah experience no matter how long.
