Manager info

Year Purchased: 1976

About: The Saxman family purchased this home in 1976 and raised their two youngest children here before opening the Whitaker-Huntingdon Inn, in 1995. The Inn was operated as a B&B until 2014. Then the inn's two large suites were leased as two full-service 'vacation rental' units. Both owners retired from their respective previous 39 and 21 year-long professions. They now enjoy hosting visitors in their two large suites situated in their historic home/inn. We have met many visitors over the past twenty years and have become friends with a number of guests whom have shared our home numerous times. Guests still like to be on their own schedules; have free parking in a convenient, desirable location in the historic district; and feel the history and enjoy the architectural details of this 1883 home and Savannah; plus enjoy the urban tree canopy and landscaped areas of Forsyth Park and the other nearby public spaces.

Why Savannah:
The house is located in a prime area of the Savannah Historic District on beautiful Forsyth Park. It was and still is an ideal place for raising a family, for jogging and training for races; or, just enjoying the outdoors in a 32 acre park/arbortum with areas to experience various recreational, social and/or quite times.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The glassed climate controlled sun porch is a nice place to read, people and/or dog watch (as they walk or jog around the park), or just sit and have a nice chat with family or play a game on the porch. Three goldfish pond fountains on-site offer a soothing sound and a plash of color while sitting on the property's patios.
