A pair of wealthy cotton merchants originally built The Inn in 1855. Throughout the years, the two Federalist style mansions received many prominent visitors. One of the most famous guests was Civil War General Robert E. Lee. In 1870, Lee traveled to Savannah to meet with his daughter and when he arrived, he was overwhelmed by a large crowd of cheering fans welcoming him to the city. Once the crowd thinned out, Lee retreated to the privacy of our present-day inn where he even shared a meal with the family who lived here at the time!
Fast forward to 1987, when the two historic mansions became a bed and breakfast. The property received visitors from all over the region, and it was extensively renovated again in 2007. Today, it is one of Savannah’s premier downtown accommodations. Southern Living featured our inn several times, and Savannah Magazine awarded it the “Best B&B in Savannah” for six consecutive years. From past to present, Presidents’ Quarters Inn is the perfect combination of classic Savannah and the newly invigorated downtown area.
