Fodor's Review

With bathrooms the size of New York City apartments, this French-Empire mansion is celebrated, if not in song, certainly in story, and certainly has a "wow" effect, especially the rooms that front Lafayette Square. It was built ostentatiously in 1873 by Samuel Hamilton, Savannah's then mayor (who made money as a blockade runner during the Civil War) and then rescued from further ignominy in 1997 by a wealthy Savannah couple, who did the initial restoration. Current owners

Gay and Jim Dunlop sank their money into a massive restoration that returned the home's former glory. The original arched doors are 15 feet tall. The carriage house is the most private room, though not as atmospheric. The Dunlops strive for perfection, and the Southern mansion breakfast has baked items such as scones and hot entrées like perfect eggs Benedict. The afternoon reception features quality wine and both hot and cold hors d'oeuvres.
