We have just had a wonderful stay with Maurice and Glenn at Park Avenue Manor. What a beautiful and unique home. Very cozy, warm and inviting. As a guest, their entire home is available to you. Lovely sitting rooms. Maurice and Glenn pay close attention to detail in all aspects of their B&B, from posting the weather each morning to providing sherry, tea and coffee along with brownies for their guests each afternoon when they return from their exploration of Savannah. Our breakfast each morning was beautifully prepared and delicious. In good weather, there's a lovely patio outside to relax and enjoy. Their location at the southwest corner of Forsyth Park was perfect...an excellent starting point each morning for exploring Savannah. Maurice and Glenn were always available to us and were only too eager to share their knowledge and recommendations as well as to help with any arrangements. We strongly recommend their B&B as an ideal place to stay in Savannah. One of very favourite B&B's!

Our first attempt at gathering family away from home now that the kids are adults was spent at the Park Avenue Manor. Great accommodations with holiday charm at the Manor topped off the trip. Owners Maurice & Glenn were wonderful hosts with lots of suggestions on where to eat and things to do. Loved walking in Forsyth Park, always in awe of the trees. Hope to do it again!

I spent 4 nights over the Christmas Holidays at the Park Avenue Manor. The Parlors were decorated beautifully in the Christmas Victorian Style with the added touch of a warm glow from the fireplace. The Inn itself was decorated beautifully and was very clean, and the breakfasts were excellent. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and water was available at all times, as well as their famous brownies and sherry. I loved that it was next to the Forsyth Park and was walking distance from downtown Savannah. Maurice and Glenn were most helpful in suggestions of what to see and do and were wonderful hosts! This is my 2nd stay at their Inn and I must say each time their hospitality is even more amazing! Thank you so much I will surely be back!

My last active duty station (1976) having been Hunter Army Airfield (HAAF), we have learned our way around Savannah over the years and have enjoyed its various lodging establishments (particularly its Bed and Breakfasts). Each December, the week before Christmas, we travel to Savannah to celebrate our Anniversary. Last December (2013) we found this "gem", and this year we returned for a four-night stay in the Georgia Suite to celebrate our 49th (with my wife's Mom--her first time in Savannah and first time staying in a bed and breakfast--she was thrilled). The ambiance, warmth and charm of this beautifully furnished Victorian home, coupled with the personal attention to detail by the hosts, Maurice and Glenn, clearly sets it apart from the other Savannah B&B offerings. The breakfasts are personally prepared by Glenn and Maurice each morning, and are served in an intimate dining room setting. Sherry and brownies await guests throughout the day (as does "Red", the outside cat), and complimentary soft drinks and water can be found in the refrigerators. The beds are very comfortable and the sleep quality is excellent. Give the Park Avenue Manor a try--you won't be disappointed. We'll be back again and again; and thanks, Maurice and Glenn, for all you do to make our stays so very enjoyable! John, Margaret and Eudine

This bed and breakfast comes highly recommended in fact I would say is a must stay when in Savannah. The hosts are a delight and full of all kinds of information and tips on everything Savannah. The photos are exactly as pictured and the breakfasts are wonderful. Sitting around the communal table with all the guests getting tips on Savannah was a highlight each morning.

I LOVE the Park Avenue Manor and Maurice and Glenn. I've stayed 4 times and each time I feel like I am family. They are welcoming, gracious hosts who treat me like royalty. The manor is Victorian-period, beautifully decorated, rooms are painted in wonderful hues, and the breakfasts are always delicious. They have coffee and sherry (my favorite!) available 7/24. I stay for the Half Marathon and they so thoughtfully provide 'goody bags' for the runners and walkers to take to the start line. They are conveniently located right next to Forsyth Park, which is the finish line location. How great is that? Love the Manor, love these guys! Peg from Gloucester Point VA

My wife and I visited Savannah for our honeymoon. All the positive reviews lead us to the Park Avenue Manor and it exceeded all of our expectations. Glenn and Maurice were fantastic, they were always able for questions, made great suggestions and really made us feel at home. The building is wonderfully decorated. Our room (the Savannah Room) was a nice size. Comfortable bed, private bath with updated fixtures, toilet and shower. They have a great little enclosure back yard with a couple water fountains that was prefect to relax in after a long pay of sightseeing, if you go make sure you say hi to Red for us (Glenn and Maurice's outdoor B&B cat)! The location was great, it's roughly a mile to the river (very easy walk) we took a new route each day to get up there and were able to see so much more of this beautiful city. Highly recommended!

We recently had the opportunity to visit Savannah and stay at the Park Avenue Manor. We couldn't have been more pleased. The B&B was beautiful, clean, comfortable and the hosts Maurice and Glenn were friendly and welcoming. Our breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. A top notch experience indeed!

This is a charming B&B. The hosts are very caring about your visit. They do so much to make your visit easy. The rooms were big and homey. We liked the colonial room,very bright. Make sure you visit the courtyard and say hi to "red".

We were first time visitors to Savannah and I was excited to stay at a Bed and Breakfast after always staying in condos with family members and all that chaos. Park Avenue Manor did not disappoint. It was a beautiful home with a great location ,easy to find. We never had any trouble with parking. Glenn and Maurice were wonderful hosts and gave us good advice on what to do in Savannah since this was a short trip and we wanted to see and do as much as we could. We will definitely stay there again!!!
