Great house true to the local architectural style. We loved the separate apartment and perfect location a half mile from Forsythe park, 1 mile to the river so easy walking distances. Great local restaurants away from more touristy sections within blocks of the house. We loved Cotton & Rye and Foxy Loxy (breakfast and coffee). Keith was a great host. Our furry companion felt right at home. There is no on-site dining per say, but there were great bagels and muffins and other breakfast items such as yogurt and orange juice and a bottle of wine as a greeting which we enjoyed. The local restaurant recommendations were great.

This B&B is in a beautiful restored mansion in the Victorian Historic District in Savannah. It is in a very walkable area of town and near many wonderful restaurants. The innkeepers run a first class operation. The rooms are lovely and include many nice amenities.They allow dogs and since the suites are quiet and cool (AC was wonderful); I could leave my bloodhound in the room while I went out to eat or explore. I will visit again. TAL - Asheville, NC

Visited our daughter, who is a student at SCAD, for a long weekend and found The Galloway House online the day we were set to arrive. The carriage house was very comfortable for two. The living room is a comfortable relaxing space to enjoy morning coffee before headed out for the day, or a pre dinner drink before hitting up the local dining scene. Location is close enough to downtown without being in the thick of it. We'd definitely return.

Our stay was comfortable and appreciated the breakfast items. We weren't really there to hang around the house, so for the value it was a bit expensive but I did make last minute reservations so that is what I get. The picture you see on the website is gorgeous and it doesn't quite look this gorgeous in person especially with the surroundings. The owners were very nice and obviously put alot of work into the home and I appreciate that. Thanks again for the hospitality.

Oh my heck! We loved staying at the Galloway House! We loved the location, it was so inviting and enchanting. The staff was excellent to communicate with! We loved receiving suggestions on places to eat. We would definitely come again! -Brooke UT

We could not have asked for better hosts!!! Keith had answers for any question we had about Savannah- and some great 'off the beaten path' ones to explore too. We wanted for nothing - they anticipated our every need , and made our stay feel like we were visiting family~ even Down to the puppy kisses from their entourage of Great Danes ¿¿ We will definitely stay at the Galloway House again!!!!

My daughter and I visited Savannah for a brief vacation. We stayed in the top floor apartment, and it was wonderful. I enjoyed the early morning light, my daughter not so much! There was a tiny porch outside the entrance which was nice, but there is not much of a view from there. The garden in the back yard is beautiful,I could have spent more time there. We asked and Keith was generous enough to introduce us to their dog! Parking was on the street and there were also two spots in the alley behind the house and we never had trouble finding a place to park. The B & B does not provide a breakfast in a dining room, but breakfast foods (bagels, muffins, yogurt, OJ, coffee,tea) were provided and replenished as needed. Technically there was no onsite dining, but there are several eating establishments within walking distance. Jim and Keith were absolutely helpful and friendly. We got some pointers on where to walk for a meal and other tips on ways to explore Savannah. Overall, I was pleased with our visit and would certainly stay here again!

Fabulous stay! The first floor carriage house was delightful and large enough for a 2 nite stay. Gardens are breathtaking. Jim was so helpful before and during checkin. Communicating with via text was helpful prior to checkin. Thank you for you hospitality.

Jim and Keith thought of everything. Would recommend to anybody.

Great location in Historic district. Nice neighborhood and easy walk to great restaurants. Owners are great hosts.
3.6 on June 13, 2016
We had a lovely stay at the Galloway House! The bed was AMAZING! And having the breakfast already stocked in our apartment was a nice touch. Everything was clean, and the location was convenient. We were thrilled about how pet friendly it was. Our pup loved it, too. Would definitely stay again!
5 on June 07, 2016
The owners, Jim and Keith, were wonderful, kind and helpful. They have made a warm, comfortable and cozy place to stay. A home away from home. Very close to all the excitement of the historic district, and far enough away where you are not caught up in all the "tourist" traps. I loved that they provide information on tours, places to visit, as well as places to eat. Was more than satisfied with our stay there, will definitely stay there again!
4.6 on June 07, 2016
Loved the area - great part of the city. We didn't want to stay near the river. We wanted to eat and stay were residents lived. This home has it all. We had fabulous food at restaurants that you can easily walk to. Really enjoyed the Rye and Cotton. Keith and Jim are wonderful hosts.
5 on June 06, 2016
We recently stayed at The Galloway House and could not have been more pleased. We visit Savannah a few times every year and this is our first to stay here. We are so glad that we found them. Keith and Jim were very accommodating. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. We loved the fact of having our own kitchen and the breakfast items provided were perfect. It was nice to sleep in late one day after a wonderful late night out. I was able to get up make a fresh pot of coffee and we enjoyed a leisure morning before heading back out. We love coming to Savannah and have stayed at several places but The Galloway House has truly spoiled us. We will see Keith and Jim and the Great Danes this fall. Our new home away from home. Thank you!
4.2 on June 06, 2016
Keith and Jim are the perfect keepers of this sweet little bed and breakfast. The rooms are very comfortable and within walking distance of many things to do. The renovations that have been made on the Galloway House are very remarkable - be sure to take a look at the binder in your room that includes before and after photos of the house.
4.4 on June 04, 2016
Stayed at Galloway House for a girlfriend getaway. Convenient and luxurious. Keith and Jim are great hosts and very willing to help with local 'things to do'. The front porch sitting was one of the best parts...everyone is so friendly. Would highly recommend this B&B.
4.4 on May 21, 2016
We had a wonderful time. The owners were great, their food recommendations were spot on. Our dogs loved it. The location is excellent.
5 on May 16, 2016
We stayed here a year ago for just one night. We liked it so much that we chose it as a destination spot for our small wedding this year. The owners were VERY accommodating to our needs, made sure things were smooth and enjoyable for us. The 2 bedroom apartment was beautiful, and the front porch was the perfect spot for our family and friends to gather while we were in town. We had our ceremony in the courtyard and were able to hold about 15 people. I would highly recommend this spot if you are looking for a nice get-a-way, or a destination location for a small wedding. It is within about a mile walking distance to Forsythe park. Lots of places to walk and grab food and such. The breakfast is muffins, granola bars, yogurt, and such. You are in your own apartment, not a shared space with others for your stay. We could not have been happier with the whole experience.
4.6 on May 10, 2016
My wife and I, along with our Cocker Spaniel and Pomeranian stayed from April 24th to April 27th. Thoroughly enjoyed especially our evening front porch relax with a drink. Weather was beautiful and a nice breeze and tree lined street. Jim and Keith were wonderful hosts and 1st floor carriage house was so much better than a hotel room. Beautiful flower/plant gardens in a seclude back yard. Tips for dining were spot on and walking distance. Had lunch in downtown Savannah but dinners were all near our home away from home. Enjoyed Green Truck Pub, Cotton & Rye and Foxy Loxy Café Dog friendly here and in Savannah. most enjoyable time.
4.8 on May 09, 2016
We had a great 2 night stay in the Turner Loft. Jim and Keith were VERY accommodating when it came to a slightly early check-in and a late check out and also using the bikes. The loft was clean, had everything we needed and very comfortable. They even have a handy folder with all local eats, drinks, etc...I would recommend this place to everyone (and I already have!) Whitney

Two bagels, two muffins, and some granola bars did not qualify as a continental breakfast for two people for two days in my opinion. Our accommodations were clean except for the owners dogs urinating outside our entryway. The Galloway House seemed to be a distance from the 'Heart of the Historic District' and this was highlighted by Savannah's homeless gathering in a park 50 yards away. Construction next door may be a distraction from a quiet visit for some.
If someone shows up with 4 adults, 2 kids and 3 dogs but their reservation was for 2 adults in 1 bedroom, there shouldn't be any confusion if they are charged exactly as defined in our terms and conditions. The square is popular with college students and not the homeless, the house is and always will be 1.6 miles from the Savannah River in a quite and affluent residential neighborhood, it's been difficult for a blind and deaf female Great Dane puppy we rescued to learn her surroundings and the breakfast is listed in detail on our website.
3.8 on April 28, 2016
We enjoyed our stay at the Galloway House. We stayed in the 3rd floor loft apartment. The owners were very accommodating and thought of everything we needed to be comfortable away from home. I appreciated the in-room breakfast options. Overall, it was a good experience.
5 on April 28, 2016
We absolutely loved our stay at the Galloway House! It was so beautiful and the colonial style made our stay in Savannah. There were 5 of us and we had more space than could have imagine.... We especially enjoyed our mornings drinking coffee on the front porch and in the sun room. The location was perfect being in the historic district and we even enjoyed riding the bikes around the beautiful neighborhood. The linens were were wonderful and made for a good nights sleep in the beautiful bedrooms! Jim and Keith were great and always available if needed... Have us some advise of where to visit and dine! We are all looking forward to visiting Savannah again and staying at the Galloway House! We called it our "Massion"!
4.8 on April 17, 2016
This past week we spent 4 days in Savannah at The Galloway House. This is our third time to Savannah but our first time to stay here. We absolutely loved our stay and accommodations. Every detail from our arrival to departure could not have been better. We were greeted by Jim, his warm welcome set the tone for our stay. He had many suggestions for places to eat. We had not stayed in this area of the historic district before.There were several places just a block or 2 away. Our favorites were Foxy Loxy, Cotton & Rye, Sly's and Elizabeth's on 37th. Our accommodations were so comfortable and clean. Such a pleasure to stay some place were you are treated so well. There are several beautiful old homes in the neighborhood. Savannah is one of our favorite to go places, we now have our favorite to stay place ! See you again!
1.4 on April 09, 2016
The property is in a sketchy area, at best. No breakfast is provided, only a muffin and two dry bagels that appeared to have been well handled. Window mounted air conditioners and no heat. We chose to leave a day early and the owners are now refusing to refund us the extra day charge. We are very disappointed in this entire experience.
We're very sorry when someone is called back to work two days early and their employer refuses to cover the employee's expenses. Of course we have central heat! Every guest has unlimited fresh bagels, muffins, yogurt, orange juice, granola bars, cream cheese, butter, whole bean Arabica coffee, a selection of herbal tea, bottled water and a bottle of wine.
4.2 on March 13, 2016
My fiancee and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Galloway House! Staying at the Galloway House is like your own apartment away from home. Keith and Jim were extremely accommodating, providing a nice continental breakfast in the room, guidebooks and maps of Savannah, and even allowing pets for a small fee. The surrounding neighborhood is also very cute, with a great coffee shop and restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Savannah!
4.4 on February 17, 2016
We were so lucky to find this place. Jim and Keith made sure we had everything we needed, including our dog. If I were single I could live here! We'll definitely return.
4.6 on January 28, 2016
Brought my dog with me and enjoyed a long weekend at The Galloway House. The room was very cozy and the owners were very helpful. They mentioned great places to visit and where to eat. It was very relaxing and exactly what I needed.

Timeless beauty. I will stay there again. Keith & Jim were great hosts.
4.6 on January 21, 2016
Place was amazing. Great location and great home. Keith was phenomenal as host. Great to have our dog there, too.
4.6 on December 27, 2015
Very friendly host, beautiful grounds and a very comfortable first floor apartment in the back with parking and great parking and private entrance. We brought our German Shepard with us, what a treat to have him along for a vacation. Jim told us about a trolley company in town that allowed our dog to go on the tour, another pleasant surprise. I would recommend this B&B to my friends especially if they want to bring their doggies along.
5 on December 19, 2015
We really enjoyed our visit however, our visit to Savannah was consumed by a family wedding,.... So we plan to return at a later date to truly appreciate this B&B.
4.2 on December 08, 2015
We have been there for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very well. House is great and our room was very large with kitchen, living room and bedroom (all in one, but well solved), Breakfast was not included, but fridge was filled with yoghurt, water, orange-juice and some other items)
4.0 on November 27, 2015
Georgeous and spaceous room in 3rd floor. Ideal also for long term stays. Ideal for exploring Savannah and sorroundings. No breakfast but filled fridge.
5 on November 18, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the carriage house- upstairs. Old and charming with new, hardly used furnishings. Exceptionally comfortable bed, linens and towels. Muffins and bagels with yogurt and juice were nice to have available. A bottle of wine and pretty glasses awaited our arrival. Attention to details here is their specialty!

We had two couples in town for a wedding, we rented the Button Suite and the Henry Suite. One is a studio apartment with a living area and kitchen and the other is a one bedroom with a full bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, and access to a lovely private first story porch with furniture (sorry I cant remember which apartment was which but the owner Peter can certainly answer that). We had an amazing stay, we brought our dog and the front porch had a gate which allowed her to roam around and watch people walking by without having to worry she would get out. There is also a huge side yard which is fenced which Peter explained we were welcome to use for her as well. The apartment on the backside of the house had a outdoor table, chairs and a firepit (which we never used b/c we all loved being on the front porch). While there we lost our car keys so we literally looked under every piece of furniture, cushions, floors, etc. searching for the keys. It was a good way to realize just how immaculate this place is kept, everything, including under dressers and couch cushions were kept spotless. They provide breakfast and if you run out of something just let Peter know and he will replace it. He lives upstairs in the house so is onsite if something comes up. There is parking in the back which is a plus b/c Savannah parking is tough. The only negative we had was the location which is pretty far from the historic district and just on the cusp of a tough neighborhood. We felt perfectly safe sitting on the porch late at night but I wouldn't have wanted to walk home alone in that neighborhood. On the upside it is in a neighborhood which is quiet and not slammed with tourists. Overall we had a lovely experience and highly recommend it. Thank you Peter!
4.4 on November 12, 2015
Was in Savannah for the Rock 'n Roll Marathon. Keith went above and beyond all expectations by getting up to drive us to the starting line so that we could "sleep in" a bit. Jim gave us great pointers to neighborhood restaurants so that we could enjoy the city more as residents than tourists ... This was all on top of providing a gorgeous home for us to live in for a few days. I highly recommend this property!
4.2 on October 13, 2015
Host were accommodating but invisible. Great location and conveyed a sense of safety. We have been to Savannah many times and I would recommend the Galloway House to all my friends.
4.2 on October 10, 2015
We stayed in the Carriage House, first floor. It was a wonderful place! The wine upon entering was especially nice.
5 on October 08, 2015
We loved our five day stay at Galloway House! The location was perfect with a variety of restaurants close by in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to downtown. The house is delightful and we especially enjoyed having our morning coffee in the sun room or on the lovely front porch. The kitchen is well equipped and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful in supplying information about what to see, do and eat while in Savannah.
4.4 on October 02, 2015
We found the Galloway House to be the perfect spot to enjoy our time in Savannah with our Westie Cameron on our road trip south. The accomodations were wonderful, charming and well- equipped. Our host,Keith Galloway, welcomed us warmly and made us feel right at home. We only wish we could have spent more time at the B&B and in Savannah. Although we had a lot of rain during our visit, we still enjoyed walking in the neighborhood, both to and from dinner at local restaurants which Keith recommended, and taking Cameron on outings. The gardens at Galloway House are wonderful and I wish we could have enjoyed them more during a drier period. We have already recommended the Galloway House Bed and Breakfast to both relatives and friends. Suzanne and Bill Doggett and Cameron

I thought I submitted a review already but here it goes again. The Galloway House was absolutely wonderful!! I had my own carriage house that was very clean, quaint and just perfect! The owners left breakfast items and a bottle of wine and all amenities were there, dishes, microwave, etc. which I was not expecting. You could walk to Forsyth Park and the street the B&B was on was very quiet and had a wonderful large porch I enjoyed wine and a good book on. I was also able to bring my lab which was wonderful! They even supplied dog bowls :) I would highly recommend The Galloway House and would def stay again!
5 on September 12, 2015
We were only in Savannah for a day, but Keith made our stay incredibly pleasant. The house was gorgeous and extremely comfortable. We are actually considering visiting Savannah again just to stay at the Galloway House because of how relaxing our evening was.
5 on September 10, 2015
I had been on a road trip of a lifetime, driving from the west coast, along the Gulf Coast, and finally reaching Savannah. It was heavenly to be in an environment that was more like home than a hotel. I will definitely be back.
5 on September 08, 2015
We have found this place the best in meeting our needs. Very quiet, charming, dog friendly........ We have made this our (at least) once a year vacation spot.
5 on September 07, 2015
We (myself, hubby, Mom, and 2 dogs) stayed at The Galloway House from 8/22-8/27/15 in the main house apartment and it is absolutely beautiful! We have been renting homes for about 12 years and The Galloway House is, by far, the cleanest home we've ever rented...not spec of dust, not a stray cobweb, not a dog hair to be found. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is stocked with great breakfast items, and the furnishings are impressive. The house is located on a safe, quiet street with plenty of parking (on and off street) and several nice dining establishments close by. We have already recommended The Galloway House to several of our friends! Thanks to Jim and Keith for sharing this home with us while visiting beautiful Savannah!

This was our 2nd stay at the Galloway House and we couldn't have been more pleased! We are making this one of our yearly vacation spots. Michael & Reggie

My husband and I looked on line for a location that allowed dogs. The Galloway House was a perfect location to visit Savannah and bring your dog. It was a quaint little one bedroom bed and breakfast apartment that allowed us to come and go s we pleased. We felt safe about leaving our dog while going out to eat. I would recommend this location and look forward to a return.
4.8 on August 19, 2015
The Galloway House is very nice. Everything is clean. The sheets are so soft. The living room is cozy. My dog also loved this place! He also loved one of the owners, Jim. The owners are very nice. The house is a good location. You have amazing restaurants near by that are away from the busy side of River Street. I loved my stay. Thanks Jim and Keith!
5 on August 06, 2015
Already making plans to return. We toured Savannah with our best friends of 30 plus years. The downstair's apartment is perfect for two couples. Each morning started with girl talk in the kitchen sipping freshly ground coffee while the men enjoyed a robust conversation in the living room. Every room is spacious and as beautifully furnished as pictured.
4.6 on August 05, 2015
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I would not hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommend!
3.2 on June 03, 2015
Savannah absolutely LOVES dogs, and it seems the bigger they are, the more southern hospitality they receive. Every store, shop, and eatery we went to not only allowed dogs, they also catered to them with fresh water bowls, treats, and plenty of affection. The apartment was MUCH larger than I had expected! The provided snacks and breakfast actually exceeded the expectations I had due to tripadviser reviews. Fresh muffins and bagels with cream cheese, plenty of waters and juices, and plenty of other snack items were provided. Street parking was quite easy and more than plentiful. Do not believe the tripadviser critiques for parking....there are clear signs on the street stating which side to park on and on what days (for street sweeping) so that you do not receive tickets (some people just can't follow rules). The home looks a bit different than pictured, but who doesn't play around with photoshop....it was still a pleasant and clean home with pretty gardens. Be prepared to either shove your dog out of the garden gates or pick them up and carry them; trying to get a dog past a garden plant/bush for the morning "ritual" while fumbling down the stairs and through gates is tricky. My two critiques would be that 1) A doggie 'can' is needed in the outdoor paddock area to dispose of waste bags, and 2) The bed was ungodly uncomfortable (like sleeping on cement).
4.6 on June 01, 2015
My husband and I wanted to stay somewhere special to celebrate our 49th Wedding Aniiversary. The Galloway House was indeed a special place to stay! It is a beatiful house with wonderful gardens. Our hosts were inviting and very hospitable.We enjoyed the comfort and privacy of our own little apartment in the Carriage House. Our only regret was that we had not booked for another nights stay. We plan to return to the Galloway House on our 50th Anniversary.

Wonderful atmosphere of a bed and breakfast with the privacy of an apartment. With an added bonus of a stocked breakfast.
4.2 on May 21, 2015
Thus was just a quick weekend getaway for us & we couldn't have chosen a better spot for us and our two pups. The Carriage House was beautifully decorated and spotless. Cleaner than my own home!! Relaxing place to spend late evenings inside & out, with the beautiful gardens all around our apartment. Unfortunately, we only got to meet one of the hosts, but Keith was very nice and gave us his expert advise about places to go & things to do. I would highly recommend The Galloway House, especially if you're traveling with your fury babies. Thanks again to both of our hosts for a very quick, but great weekend!
5 on May 11, 2015
Couldn't ask for improvement in any area. Jim greeted us before we had gotten to the entrance and the accommodations left us wanting for nothing. Will definitely return and recommend to others. Can't wait until we're back.
4.4 on May 10, 2015
I searched on "Bring Fido" site for a dog friendly place to stay in Savannah and found The Galloway House. My arrival was delayed because I was literally stopped in traffic on I-95. So, needless to say, by the time I arrived at The Galloway House, I was a bit frazzled. Keith welcomed me, showed me (and Jasper) to the Carriage House upstairs appartment which has been beautifully refurbished. The courtyard is lush and beautiful. I defrazzled with the aid of the bottle of wine that was left for me. I would highly recommend The Galloway House to anyone visiting Savannah.

From the moment we walked into the first floor apartment at Galloway House, we felt like we had stepped back into historic Charleston. Wonderfully restored and furnished property! We loved having ceiling fans in the bedrooms and the breakfast items fully stocked in the refrigerator. Easy drive to historic Charleston but away from the crowds and noise. Off street parking and beautiful little gardens. We especially enjoyed coffee in the sunroom in the mornings!
4.8 on May 04, 2015
A great quiet historical place to stay. Complete with a beautiful garden . We stayed in the carriage house first floor apt and was very roomy for the two of us and our dog. Plus we had the advantage of walking thru their beautiful garden to get to our door. Jim and Keith the owners were fabulous with anything we needed. Love the charm of this place and will go back again. Very clean and love it is dog friendly. We travel a lot with our dogs and only ask people to please follow the pet rules wherever u go. It makes a better place for others. We had no problems here!! Great parks close by to walk your dogs.

I decided to surprise my girlfriend with something different... our first bed and breakfast! I chose The Galloway House, trusting the reviews of previous guests, which were outstanding. After our stay we both agreed that this is how we're going to do things from now on. Our room, which was actually a one bedroom house, was simply AWESOME! The wood flooring, vintage furniture, fully equipped kitchen with lots of complimentary goodies, private bathroom and parking, attentive hosts and its location were the perfect setting for one of our most memorable outings. The ghost of Mr. Lester was friendly and left us alone, for the most part. He did let us know he was there once by turning the door knob to the front door, courteously letting us know he was coming in to spend some time with us. We both rate our stay at The Galloway House a 10+.
5 on April 19, 2015
We loved everything about our short stay in Savannah especially the Galloway House! Keith and Jim made us feel incredibly welcome and they were even flying a Canadian flag :) The Carriage House was lovely and we felt so very comfortable there. I can't wait until we can come back and visit again!!
4.6 on April 08, 2015
We were in Savannah for a family Easter weekend - had a great time. The house is very nice - top notch. We tried a couple of restaurants near the house, all were very good. The owners are great. Would highly recommend staying here - when I'm back for the Savannah marathon definitely going to try and stay here again.
4.2 on April 07, 2015
Having a kitchen was great.... Owners were extremely personable and helpful in every way. Would highly recommend this B and B ....several very good restauarants are in walking distance and historical Savannah to the riverfront is about a 30 minute walk.

We stayed at Galloway House in mid March on our way home to Ontario. It was a bit of a walk down to the historic district and riverfront and we had a cool drizzly day to do it but it was awesome. Loved the walk through all the various squares and the scenery was amazing. We were staying in the main floor carriage house. It was roomy, very clean and well supplied. While not a bed and breakfast the owners call it apartment and breakfast . Bagels, muffins, butter, cream cheese, orange juice., granola bars are applied along with a nice bottle of wine. We had a very private entry way through the gardens and felt very safe. Some have stated it was in a risky put neighbourhood but I did not feel that at all. It was not the historic district but I walked our dog all around the neighbourhood several times and felt safe. It is an older area but the entire city is old and full of history. All in all a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely stay here on a return visit, which we hope to make another year. We stayed 3 days and there is still a lot to see. Thank you Jim and Keith.
From the Historic Savannah Foundation's website: Designated a National Register Historic District in 1997, the Thomas Square Streetcar Historic District contains a collection of historic, intact residential, commercial, and community buildings associated with the Thomas Square Neighborhood. Developed in the late nineteenth century, Thomas Square is bounded by Anderson Lane on the north, East Broad Street, roughly Victory Drive on the south, and Montgomery Street on the west. The city electrified the streetcar in 1888 and extended the A and B Belt line south along Whitaker Street into this district, creating a streetcar suburb. The streetcar lines were removed in 1920 due to the increased use of the automobile.

The Galloway House exceeded our expectations. The property is beautiful, and guests receive 5-star treatment. The owners are welcoming and make sure that every need is addressed. The Galloway House has my highest recommendation.
4.8 on March 22, 2015
I made a fairly last minute reservation at the Galloway house(4-6 March). I was traveling with my 18 year old daughter and we decided to make a stop in Savannah. I love the look and feel of the Galloway house. We were in one of the carriage house apartments so we had tons of privacy and our own private entrance. The garden area leading to our apartment is lovely and I am sure it is absolutely stunning during the growing season. The apartment is well appointed and the extra touch of a bottle of wine, a fridge with bottled water, juice, cream cheese and butter was wonderful. Jim and Keith normally put bagels and such in the apartment for guests but we asked for fruit instead. They very willingly made the adjustment. Jim and Keith are perfect hosts. They are available if you need them but otherwise leave you alone. I personally love the location. We were able to walk to the river. It is a bit of a hike but it is so pretty. One block up to bull street and head straight to the river. History is abundant and the best way to really get a feel for Savannah is to walk these wonderful streets and have plenty of time to do it. We were also able to rent bikes from Jim and Keith and we had a nice ride. There is no onsite dining but there are plenty of places to eat and breakfast can be had at the apartment.
4.0 on March 14, 2015
The B&B was nice. My fiance and I enjoyed our time there and used it's relative proximity to Forsyth park and historic Savannah to make the most of our trip. Though it is a bit of a walk if you want to explore all of the way to the river, that's the kind of exploration Savannah was made for so it wasn't an issue. The area was safe, the apartment was clean, and Jim and Keith were hospitable. While the breakfast isn't anything too special, it sufficed and wasn't an issue since I don't usually choose my lodging based on their dining options. Overall, it's somewhere I would recommend staying.
3.8 on March 11, 2015
We enjoyed our stay. The place was nice and clean. Friendly people. Looking foward to staying again.

Just home from a week in Savannah. We stayed at The Galloway House and soon found that we have found our home while visiting Savannah. We go to Savannah 3-4 times a year and have stayed at many different places. This is the first place we were made to feel at home from the greeting with Jim and Keith. They both were very accommodating and knowledgeable. The accommodations were very clean and so comfortable. They have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. My wife and I also appreciated the fact that we had complete privacy and had our own fully stocked kitchen. The neighborhood also has several great little cafes and resturaunts. They are located in a quiet area of the historic district but just minuets to everything. Thank you for providing such wonderful and inviting accommodations. We have found our new home while visiting Savannah!

We loved staying at the Galloway House and were so sad when we had to go home! Keith and Jim were a big help and we plan on going back a.s.a.p.!

March 2-3, 2015. We loved our stay in Savannah, starting with the Galloway House. You have thought of everything including muffins, bagels, water, orange juice, granola bars and candies. It was so comfortable with all the privacy needed and such beautiful gardens. Our two dogs loved it as well! We will definitely be back. Thanks for all the details. Very, very clean as well.

Jim met us with a warm greeting upon arrival, provided a very informative tour of the property and amenities, and gave some very helpful tips on where to go in the area. We really enjoyed our stay in the first floor carriage house apartment and I could see making an extended stay here with the well equipped kitchen, good size living room, nice bathroom with shower, and a beautiful four-poster bed in th bedroom. Unfortunately, we could only stay for two nigts but we hope to return soon.

I found this treasure on the website "Bring Fido" on my home from Florida. The rooms were clean and charming. A delicious bottle of wine was sitting on the counter and bagels in a glass covered dish. As a single woman traveling I was a little nervous about walking around the neighborhood at night but I felt safe back on the property in my cozy room. There was a $50 fee for my dog, which I felt was high ( she is a non-shedding little poodle) maybe she slurped water on the floor from her dog bowl. Little dogs should pay $25 Big dogs $50 . There is a wonderful restaurant right around the corner.

The staging for the homes photo is very impressive, yet the setting is in a neighborhood watch. My wife was reluctant to venture out alone. Savannah is a city with a lot of history, Galloway House is a fine renovation in a downtrodden neighborhood that is almost two miles from the major points of interest downtown. If you don't mind the distance and the surrounding poverty then you will do ok here, but there are better options.breakfast was costco type muffins and bagels...yogurt too. Keep looking for a better option.

Our stay at The Galloway House was everything we hoped for. From being dog-friendly to a great little apartment to stay in to a great location. Jim and Keith were great hosts and made us feel very welcomed. We will definitely plan to stay here again when we visit in the future.

We brought our mutts and they had a great time too.

I loved the Galloway house!! It felt like our own little apartment right in the heart of Savannah. Everything was within walking distance. Keith and Jim were so nice and helped with anything we needed! The room was perfect for us and the dogs felt right at home. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a quite little get away!
4.2 on February 04, 2015
An excellent place to stay and superior to almost any other place anywhere that accepts dogs. The hosts, Jim and Keith, go the extra mile to make the stay enjoyable. The accommodations, though on the small side, are beautifully decorated and comfortable. The property contains lovely gardens and parking is directly outside off the back alley. However, the neighborhood is in transition and a long walk to the historic district.
4.8 on February 02, 2015
My bf and I only stayed one night but we regretted that instantly. We wish we could have stayed longer and we want to go back as soon as we can! Very cute, very welcoming, homey, great coffee and muffins, I have nothing bad to say only good things!

Very nice apartment in carriage house with a king size poster bed and a kitchen with full size fridge and stove, in a nice quiet area in the Victorian area of the Historic District

We stayed in the 3rd floor apartment on both legs of our road trip to Florida. The apartment had plenty of room for our two dogs to move around and the full kitchen came in handy. There was a continental breakfast available in the apartment; the complementary water and bottle of wine were most appreciated. The bed was very comfortable. This apartment worked out perfectly for us!

booked Galloway House for a two night stop on road trip from Key west to St Louis this was the best place we stayed stunning apartment, fantastic furniture and art wish we had more time to extend our stay

What a lovely place. There is a comfortable front porch, a lovely sunroom, and spacious living and dining areas. The kitchen is smallish, but ample enough for any cooking you want to do on your vacation. The house is a bit south of the downtown hustle and bustle though close enough to walk (1.5 miles). We ran downtown and back a few times and during the day we would park at Forsyth Park and walk the squares. At the end of the day, it was nice to get out of it all to our quiet neighborhood. The hosts are amiable and informative. They left provisions for a substantial continental breakfast, etc. etc. Hope to be back soon!
5 on January 04, 2015
Beautiful, clean, B&B located in southern part of historical district. Pet friendly, welcoming and extremely comfortable. Would definitely return. Great first time visit to Savannah and first time staying at a B&B. Jim and Keith are extremely hospitable. Love the experience!!!!
5 on January 03, 2015
We spent a couple days in Savannah and had out dog along with us. What a great city! We prefer to stay in apartments or bed and breakfasts when we travel, and The Galloway House was the perfect place! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Keith and he explained the rules, gave us a run down of the area and some great review of area restaurants. We headed upstairs to find a very nice one bedroom apartment that felt like home! The amenities were perfect, including a bottle of wine, muffins, OJ and plenty of bottled water! He told us to call if we needed anything else or a replenishment of breakfast items. We set off to explore Savannah and enjoy the Southern hospitality that truly comes with this lovely city!

A marvelous oasis in the middle of midtown Savannah. Everything was perfect. I'll never stay in a Savannah hotel again, no matter how wonderful.

Our family from North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Georgia and Texas spent a wonderful 2014 Christmas holiday at The Galloway House. We chose the house for the wonderful reviews, the ideal layout for our family and the pet policy. The house is wonderful. Beautifully restored and a great place for a group like ours. Keith and Jim were the perfect hosts. Everything we asked for was there for us. If you're headed to Savannah you need to consider The Galloway House. We hope to visit again. The Spraker Family

The photos don't even do it justice! It is a magnificent place to stay. We stayed in the main house that is meticulously appointed! Comfy beds! They had a bottle of wine set out for us and some bagels and yogurt for breakfast. This is NOT the type of B&B where they cook for you. They leave you alone, which we liked. If you stay for longer than a weekend you will have to replenish the bagels or what ever you want to eat. The only improvement I could see is that they needed some kind of small table or something in the bathroom that you could put your toiletries on. There was NO room next to the sink. You had to use the top of the toilet seat or the floor. But the place was immaculate and really comfortable! I would go back in a heartbeat!
Great suggestion! I've bought two tables with shelves, one for each bathroom. Thanks, Keith

My friend and I spent two nights at the Galloway House and left wishing we could stay at a week. Great room, great city, great weekend! The room we stayed in is actuallyva studio apartment on the third floor. It is pretty high up but that allowed for a nice view or the surrounding homes and tree canopy. Yogurt, granola bars, coffee beans, muffins, bagels, butter, cream cheese, bottled water, and a bottle of wine were provided. Room has a washer and dryer, full kitchen, comfortable living room with a large flat screen tv, and the best bed I have ever slept on. The Secret and Famous Walking Tour is a must as is a visit to Savannah Smiles Dueling Piano Bar. The Savannah River Admiral's Dinner Cruise was wonderful. Bonaventure Cemetery was a great place for a self guided tour filled with peace, beauty, and history. Thank you Galloway House! We will be back!

Great alternative to expensive places downtown. Enjoyed local spots for breakfast & lunch. Sure beats a one room hotel.
5 on November 01, 2014
This was a perfect place. Quiet and cozy and the garden is beautiful. Keith the owner was nice and accommodating on what ever you might need. The kitchen was well stocked if you wanted to cook (we didn't) and there was more than enough muffins, OJ, yogurt and bagels. The bottle of wine left on the kitchen was a very beautiful touch! Great location and plenty of parking. We will definitely return to this Bed & Breakfast when we go back to Savannah!
4.4 on October 28, 2014
Beautiful house & decor. Owner was very helpful and informative. We had a great time in Savannah!
3.6 on October 25, 2014
This is simply a great place to stay in Savannah. Within walking/biking distance of everything. The house provides two bikes.Very pleased with everything.
4.8 on October 18, 2014
This was our first time in Savannah and as soon as we drove up the beauty of the house took my away. Keith took us to the top carriage house unit and it looked like it came out of a magazine. Everything in the apartment is tastefully done and in keeping with the historic charm. Everything from the bed linens and towels to items that are left for your enjoyment, yogurt, bottled water, juice, coffee, tea etc., really make you feel like you are in a 5 star boutique hotel. Keith and Jim really make you feel welcome and at home from the minute you arrive. The location is a good walk into town but a most enjoyable one - if you need to take a break have breakfast or lunch at Clary's. If we ever get another opportunity to visit Savannah we will plan it so we stay at Galloway House - any other establishment would have a difficult time measuring up.
4.8 on October 09, 2014
The Galloway House is such a beautiful place to stay and Keith and Jim make sure everything you need is available in your place. We we lucky enough to stay in the 1st floor carriage house and it was just perfect for us and our small dog. Loved the coziness and comfort of the place and the convienience of being close to the downtown area, but the quietness of the neighborhood. We would definately stay here again. Thank you again for everything!

My wife regularly stay in Savannah as our daughter has been a graduate student at SCAD for that past couple of years. We have stayed in Hotels, and we have stayed in numerous homes that we rented. I can say with confidence that the Galloway House is the best house we have stayed in there. We rented the 1st floor 2 BR apartment in the main house, so with that came access to the amazingly large and comfy front porch. Of course, we were doubly blessed, because while we were there (October 3rd and 4th, 2014), the weather broke and the first really cool Fall nip was in the air. Sky was clear blue, and it was 65 degrees in the morning while sitting and enjoying my orange juice. The kitchen was really nice, and was well-stocked (included, by the way) with OJ, Coffee, Bagels, Muffins et. al. That was a real convenience. The rest of the house was well-decorated, and the Frederick Remington art pieces were breathtaking. The master had a King bed, and it was soooooo comfortable. Linens were to die for, and I know they take great care to make it that way. We highly recommend this wonderful home to you and yours when in Savannah. It should also be mentioned that the neighborhood was beautiful, quiet and safe. Also, if you need more room, they have an additional 1 BR apartment on the third floor of the main house and two more 1 BR apartments in the carriage house in the back, but on the same property. Keith Galloway greeted my wife upon arrival and spent 20 minutes with her and my daughter. He was very personable, and left behind a complimentary bottle of Red Wine to kick off the weekend. Thanks so much Keith for your kind gesture and wonderful hospitality... we'll be back.
4.6 on October 04, 2014
our Savannah visit was enhanced by staying at the Galloway House, Jim & Keith were wonderful in providing us with info. on the area & history of their beautiful historic home. The front porch & gardens were an additional plus. A reasonable stay for the four of us on the first floor sharing living room, sunporch, dining room, kitchen, ea. bedroom had its own bath. Continental breakfast was enough.Was just wonderful !
4.0 on October 01, 2014
Jim greeted us as we arrived and his house was better than expected. We liked the idea of making your own breakfast and everything was supplied. The one bedroom apart. was perfect for us with all the comforts of home. WE would certainly stay again at the Galloway house. Thanks for a great weekend..
4.8 on September 15, 2014
My husband and I stayed at the Galloway House for our honeymoon last week. Jim and Keith provided us with warm hospitality and a beautiful apartment to stay in. We enjoyed every minute and will continue to recommend The Galloway House to all of our friends and families planning a trip to Savannah.

This place was just what we were looking for in Savannah. Nice decorated rooms. Also the perfect place for our dog. We can't wait to come back.

Breakfast was basically juice rolls and coffee. Or go out for breakfast. Was comfortable and quiet, enjoyed our stay. Best part was pet friendly!.

A great place ! You feel at home with the southern feel. Very convenient, a little bit away from the historic center. We had the whole floor for us.

Found Galloway House on bringfido.com, and I cannot say enough about what a great time we had there! Lovely accommodations, thoughtful amenities, gorgeous landscaping, and - just generally - a "most excellent" experience. :-)
5 on August 18, 2014
We enjoyed our one night stay! Very comfortable! Wish we had more time to stay!
5 on August 13, 2014
My hubby and I enjoy ourselves at the location. The owners accommodated us even when we arrived before check in time. Jim pointed out all the information relevant to dinning out and getting around. Overall great place to stay and very quiet area. Plus, you can use the bicycles to explore the town. :)
4.8 on July 29, 2014
What a welcome retreat at this beautiful Savannah B&B. The apartment was lovely, comfortable and well appointed. The gardens so lovely and relaxing. My daughter's dog was welcomed with open arms as were we. Treat yourself if you are ever in Savannah!

Awesome rooms, place and service! Doggie approved too
4.2 on July 22, 2014
We absolutely loved our stay at The Galloway House for our honeymoon. Since my bride enjoys natural light, Jim and Keith suggested the 3rd floor loft apartment and it was lovely. We also appreciated their suggestions regarding places to see and to eat. We can't wait for another opportunity to visit!
4.2 on July 16, 2014
Jim and Keith were very helpful in recommending sightseeing options, cafes and restaurants and made us feel at home. The Carriage house was perfect for relaxing and was quite spacious after small hotel rooms in NYC and DC. regards Campbell and Christina
4.2 on June 23, 2014
My partner and I stayed in the studio apartment for a short single night on our drive through Savannah. Both Keith and Jim were welcoming and very helpful. As stated in the ad and website there is no real breakfast provided but we also felt we had hassle free privacy. The only bad part of the stay was that we didn't get a chance to meet their dogs!
4.8 on June 23, 2014
My wife and I stayed in this lovely two bedroom apartment with another couple at the beginning of June. We were very surprised to find this gorgeous , spacious and very user friendly B&B in an area of town that was quiet a peaceful and serene. A perfect part of town to relax but close enough to downtown and when we wanted to explore. Upon arrival our hosts offered and supplied us with a lovely bottle of pre-chilled wine and proceeded to give us tips and recommendations for our first trip to Savannah. Restaurant recommendations were superb; if you are looking or an upscale elegant restaurant listen to the hosts...Elizabeth's was as good as it gets. Breakfast was a little more continental than we expected but we wanted to eat were the locals eat anyways. We hope to return one day to Savannah and would not waste a moment to find different accommodations.
4.8 on June 14, 2014
Savannah is hot in June but our accommodations were shady and cool. Easy to walk to parks and places to eat. The house and grounds were beautiful and Jim was so helpful with information about the area. Best of all we were able to have our dog with us!
4.4 on June 04, 2014
Our group stayed on the first and third floor of the main house. Very nicely decorated, good size for our group. Excellent location within walking distance to historical district. Plenty of on street parking. Very friendly hosts. Only downside is bathrooms need to be remodeled.
2.8 on May 21, 2014
Room was as it looked in the pictures. Lovely garden area. You will need a car to get to the historic area. I would stay here again.
5 on May 21, 2014
We were blown away by our stay at the Galloway house! Keith & Jim were simply amazing, and the place defies description. It's a grand home, that they share with you. Our accommodations were beyond our expectations as was the hospitality of our hosts. I can't wait to stay again the next time we come to Savannah!
5 on May 17, 2014
What a fantastic apartment Jim & Keith provide to their guests. We would sit on the porch of this plantation style mansion and watch Savannah drift by. It was a wonderful experience you would never find in a hotel
4.2 on May 17, 2014
We were in the attic room which was spacious, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small but that was fine and we had our own washer and Dryer, full kitchen, living room area and bed area. If you can't do stairs, don't take this room but I would stay again in a heart beat. I loved how high up we were and sitting out on the little deck overlooking the garden and treetops. The owners were so nice and helpful. The house is a bit out of downtown but we enjoy walking and it is only a 15 minute comfortable walk to town and about 25 to the waterfront. I personally liked being out of town and cab service was very convenient if we didn't want to walk. Quieter and more peaceful here than in the hub of downtown. They had bikes we could rent for CHEAP and if we took those it would have been 5 minutes to town. The room had plenty of bottled water, bagels, muffins, yogurt, coffee etc and a lovely bottle of wine. We really only had the water and wine but what was available was plentiful. I loved the place!
5 on April 28, 2014
I had the pleasure of staying at The Galloway House for three nights with three dear girlfriends. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel right at home. Keith and Jim are the perfect Innkeepers. They are charming and accomodating. It is well located within a short walk to several fabulous restaurants and attractions. The first floor apartment is beautifully decorated, the beds are super comfortable and the front porch is the ideal spot for morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. I can't wait to return someday.
5 on April 24, 2014
Thanks Jim and Keith for a fabulous stay! Enjoyed the room and grounds! and the history of the Galloway House. Looking forward to returning!
4.6 on April 14, 2014
Wonderful location and house. We loved our little apartment and the new sitting area outside. We would have loved a little more in the way of breakfast but since this isn't a true B&B (no common dining area) it met our expectations. We would recommend it and come again.
5 on March 15, 2014
Wonderful stay, wonderful house. We stayed in the 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment of the main house. Wow! Better than home and certainly more beautiful with out making u afraid to relax and enjoy their beautiful things. Also, it was nice being in a neighborhood instead of the touristy area. There was a nice park across the street to walk the dog too. It was a short walk to everything. LOVED Staying at Galloway House!
4.6 on February 20, 2014
This lovely home sits in a quiet area with plenty of parking. Our particular unit was so spacious that you could spend days there interspersed with all the things to see and do in Savannah - great place!
5 on January 20, 2014
This place is absolutely beautiful. When walking to the room there's a beautifully lit garden that makes you feel at home. My girlfriend could not stop commenting on how "cute" everything was. If i remember correctly we stayed in carriage house 2 and it had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in my life! The room was well kept (and very affordable), great location and view or the park(s). We enjoyed our stay very much and I will definitely be staying there again when visiting Savannah! B&E
4.8 on December 21, 2013
Upon arriving all the way from Sweden we were greeted by a Swedish flag and a wonderful reception by the owners. We have visited Savannah before, but this time the accommodation was a attraction in itself. We ended up doing take-outs every night, just to get to spend more time in the beautiful apartment. Spacious, super clean, nicely decorated and with ton of charm. We can't wait to come back to visit again.
4.8 on December 10, 2013
I called The Galloway House after deciding to extend my stay in Savannah and my current vacation rental had just been booked. Jim was so friendly on the phone when I called and explained I was traveling with my two dogs and told me their Carriage House was available. Never having stayed in that area of town, I didn't quite know what to expect. I was taken aback when Jim opened the cute little red door leading into the Carriage House to find the most adorable, immaculate, charming apartment. While he kindly explained where everything was, I was surprised by their adorable Grate Danes - Puppet and Buddy who came to see who was checking in. Keith also stopped by to say hello. It is obvious in all of the little details in the apartment, that both Keith and Jim have travelled extensively and know what guests look for in a top notch vacation rental. A bottle of wine, whole coffee beans and a grinder, yogurt, granola bars, muffins, make up remover pads - you name it, they had it. Hands down one of the best vacation rentals I have stayed at. Loved it so much, I extended my stay yet one more time :0) The front porch of their beautiful home is also a lovely space to spend the early evening, sipping a glass of wine while getting to know some of the other guests. And the location, just a straight shot down Drayton and you're on Bay Street in 5 minutes! I go up to Savannah every year and I hope I will be able to stay at Keith and Jim's place again next year! Highly recommend it!!
4.2 on November 29, 2013
We had a lovely studio style apartment. Very large accommodations, dish TV for rainy days, tastefully decorated, and even a washer/dryer within. The tempur-pedic bed was very comfortable!
5 on November 13, 2013
We visited in Oct. 2013. The home is tasteful in every respect. From the decor, furniture, bed and linens, to the welcome bottle of wine, you cannot do better. The breakfast fixings in our own apartment, as well as the well furnished kitchen, made travel with our pet much easier since we didn't have to look for dog-friendly dining. The area is very quiet and peaceful, so you will get a good night's rest as well as long walks in a gracious residential neighborhood. The inn keepers are friendly and are happy to share a wealth of information about Savannah. We highly reccoment the Galloway House.
4.4 on October 31, 2013
Held our family reunion at the Galloway House and found 'our home away from home'. Owners went out of their way to make us feel well taken care of and welcomed. We occupied all four apartments and found each one unique, well appointed and clean. Definitely would return.
4.6 on October 23, 2013
We loved the first floor apartment. Although we didn't use the kitchen except to cut cheese and to brew coffee, it would have served had we chosen to cook. But who cooks in Savannah? The place was perfect for our girlfriends' reunion. Spacious, beautiful, within walking distance of the DOT free trolley, and private. I will return with my husband.
5 on October 08, 2013
We always appreciate how clean and fresh everything is when we arrive. The bed is always big and comfortable with fresh crisp linens, and the bathroom was spotless with big fluffy towels to wrap up in after a shower. We love the little touches they add - fresh flowers, historic pictures, a great selection of Savannah travel books in addition to a binder full of useful information on the area. We also love the breakfast provided in our kitchen - fresh bagels, muffins, cream cheese, orange juice, and plenty of bottled water (plus a bottle of wine chilled and ready for our arrival!). The 3rd floor apartment is bright, cozy, and absolutely dreamy. I spent a few mornings sitting in the big beautiful window seat overlooking Savannah with a cup of coffee and a good book. Jim and Keith have never steered us wrong on restaurant recommendations - definitely try Foxy Loxy if you stay at the Galloway House: it's less than a block away, and is not to be missed with plenty of great locally sourced ingredients in imaginative dishes, and fun local brews! Jim and Keith also steered us toward Vic's On The River when we stayed at Galloway House on our honeymoon, and it's one of our favorite restaurants to this day. If you're looking for a place in Savannah, look no further. It's a fraction of the price of other 'historic' B&B's, with a much more laid back feel. It's just a minute or two from the downtown area, so it's close enough to get to the fun places downtown off Broughton and Bay streets, as well as the fun spots down on River street. It's far enough away, though, that you can really enjoy the quiet more laid-back aspects of Savannah. It's also dog friendly! We have never brought our pooch before, but it would be the perfect spot to bring a well-behaved dog. Jim and Keith also have two big beautiful (and super-friendly) Great Danes that add a lot of charm to the Galloway House.
4.4 on October 01, 2013
This was a great little apartment on the first floor of the carriage house at the Galloway House. The garden was lovely. The area was convenient for walking and close to several nice restaurants. They provided food stuffs and abundant juice and bottled water for making our own breakfast. There was even a bottle of wine and flowers when we arrived. My only complaint is that I didn't get to see more of their Great Danes :-)
4.8 on September 23, 2013
First time to Savannah for both my wife and myself, and we could not have found a better place to stay. Keith welcomed us by providing an excellent verbal guide to this wonderful city, and because the larger unit was unoccupied at the time of our arrival, he kindly showed us through. If we decide to return with friends, or our extended family, we know exactly where to stay. We so enjoyed walking the city we left our car at the house and spent our first evening and second day wandering the parks, feasting our eyes on the superb architecture, taking the free ferry on the river to see the city from the water and enjoying some wonderful English pub atmosphere at the Sixpence. (I am from the UK originally and so I am well versed in English pub atmospheres).
5 on August 12, 2013
Very clean, very comfortable and super friendly hosts. This was our first trip to Savannah and we did not know what to expect for sure, but Jim (one of the owners) took the time to help us get all settled in, gave us a map of the area and then gave us some tips on where the really good local dining and points of interest were. Don't even think of staying in a hotel if you have the opportunity to stay at the Galloway House! It's a short walk to a lot of really cool places, and when you are worn out from sight seeing, and doing all kinds of fun stuff all day long, you can come back "home" to relax in your own little apartment. We hope to visit again soon.
4.4 on August 01, 2013
Our stay at the Galloway house was the best part of our trip to Savannah - which is saying a lot. We loved the Carriage House room, quaint setting, the local coffee shop for hipsters, the parks nearby and we were very pleased by Keith's own helpfulness and service. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone!
3.6 on July 01, 2013
It was a great relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful property to stay on. Galloway has produced a beautiful home with a fantastic backyard.

To find a "home away from home" that allows your 4-legged child to join you, makes me very happy! The Galloway house offers just that! It's an historic house in Savannah that was carefully restored to offer individual "apartments" to guests, and their furry children. Located in the heart of the Historic District, The Galloway House is a short walk to Forsyth Park, which offers tremendous room for playing, running, or just lounging on the grass. Additionally, you have a fantastic coffee shop (Sentient Bean), just across the way. The accommodations were private, clean, and well stocked with granola bars, plenty of water, bagels/muffins, OJ, even yogurt. Keith was diligent to ask if we needed additional supplies, or had additional/other needs he could help with. We spent each night grabbing dinner from a local, neighborhood eatery...then sitting on the front porch, enjoying the surroundings. Nothing fancy...just right! If you have a dog, and would like to visit Savannah...I would recommend The Galloway House with confidence! We will be back! Karen, Aaron, and Carter (woof!)

Just magic. Absolutely a five star experience for an historic venue, well worth a minimum 1500 mile drive each way from Ontario Canada. We spent five days in late April 2013 at the Galloway’s carriage house lower floor. At least two sets of guests had a dog, and ALL including Keith & Jim’s were quiet and perfectly behaved. Such suggests that pet-accompanied travellers can be VERY respectful. Guests of course should never forget their obligations both as pet-owners and as ambassadors for home. Keith & Jim and - gotta honestly say - everyone we met in Savannah - were enormously hospitable. A class act by everyone, also suggests that Savannah as a whole buys into being and remaining a hemisphere level vacation or convention destination. ( This sunk in again several weeks later, far northbound in northern New York State, looking for tourist info bureau, getting tail-gated by a schoolbus at 68 mph. No wonder visitors appreciate Savannah ). We wish Keith & Jim’s guests the same great time we had. Five days is not enough for this city. Hope guests also try the Old Savannah (vintage trolley) Tour and good restaurants nearby. Worth taking time to watch Savannah Special Features sections of ‘Midnight in the Garden’ DVD. Thanks & hope we can get back soon. Bob & Marg Driscoll, Ontario Canada

We had a great time at the Galloway House. Jim and keith were always avalible and full of great knowledge about Savannah. They provided breakfast that met our needs. The house is a great place to stay. It is a short walk to River Street from the house but well worth the walk because of getting to pass through all the squares.

In May, my sisters, my niece, and I, had the fortunate experience of spending three nights at Galloway House. We plan to return again next year. The home was impeccably clean, and the owners' attention to detail was similar to that of a five-star hotel. Whether you choose to have your morning coffee in the lush, well-manicured garden, on the front porch, or private sun room, you are sure to enjoy your stay at this beautiful southern home away from home.

We stayed at the Galloway House for four days with another couple and had the entire 1st floor.We all thought it was great. Jim and Keith were very friendly and accommodating. Good location and easy to get wherever you want to go.We ate breakfast out on that huge front porch every morning. It was as advertised.I would definitely recommend to others.

We spent 5 days here & it was wonderful. House is as beautiful as the pictures indicate. Would highly recommend.

Everything that was promised. Great service provided by the hosts. Exceptionally clean. The food that was provided lasted my wife and I the entire duration of our stay (and then some). Also, on a somewhat unrelated note my wife and I are tattoo'ed with stretched ears and strange hair. At the last b&b we stayed at in Savannah we we're looked at strangely, but at the Galloway house we were welcomed warmly.

A beautifully restored Georgian Mansion with lovely gardens. Our room was so comfortable with a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bath. The owners could not have been more hospitable and provided lovely extras for us in our room; bagels and cream cheese, muffins, juice, water, and the most fabulous coffee. And it is walking distance from a fabulous restaurant "Elizabeth's on 37th". Highly recommended.

The Galloway House is a beautiful place to stay with your dog. We enjoyed a private and peaceful retreat here while in Savannah. The walk from the Galloway House to the Savannah River District is absolutely beautiful!

Keith & Jim provided us with a wonderful, private, well-stocked, beautiful apartment from which we could easily explore Savannah's history and wonderful dining. Trust their advice on restaurants, tours, and attractions!!

We decided to visit Savannah one night but the next time it will be for more than one night. This place was AMAZING. I will highly recommend this place to everyone !!! Wonderful atmosphere, beautiful garden, very homey !!! Super clean also !!!

This place is a dream come true! We booked a two room suite, and what we got was AMAZING, A gorgeously restored house - kitchen, living room, formal diningroom, sunroom porch, back yard! All in the heart of Savannah's historical district, cool, a little funky, full of life! Couldn't have asked for more! The price amazing for what was provided, and our hosts made us feel like we were their personal house guests! This made our visit to Savannah, and we fell in love with the city!

We had the pleasure of staying at Keith and Jim's The Galloway House en route from Florida to New York. Weary, and with dogs, we arrived on the late side but were warmly greeted by Keith & Jim. The carriage house was beautifully restored and decorated; the kitchen perfect to eat dinner and breakfast the next morning! Wonderful bed, linens, and shower! We will definitely be back -- and highly recommend The Galloway House! Lisa & Andy

We recently spent a weekend in the 2 bedroom apartment with another couple. The apartment was absolutely beautiful and very spacious. Jim and Keith were both very accomodating and were willing to provide us with anything we may need....not that we needed anything! When we were not out sightseeing, our time was spent sitting on that gorgeous front porch...could have spent the whole weekend there! Already planning a return trip in March.
5 on September 12, 2012
This was a great vacation for us. The hosts were wonderful, with breakfast stuff, water and wine stocked in the room. We stayed in the 1700sq ft 2bd/2bth apartment that was decorated beautifully with plenty of room for our 160lb dog. We will definitely return and recommend them to all.

For us to travel it always means we travel with our boxer dog as for us he is the first thing to fit into our planning. The Galloway House not only came up in the search but also by friends that used to live in Savannah. We were travelling from Canada and from the initial email to Keith & Jim they were always fast at responding to any questions. We were arriving out of their check in window but they accommodated us. They are both truly friendly people it is like talking to an old friend. The apartment was wonderfully furnished the back yard there are no pictures to do it justice, and it's also fully fenced in so we could let our dog run out without worrying about him getting loose. They also flew our Canadian Flag on July 1st which was our country's national day, which made both of us truly happy. As far as cost goes it's around the same price as any of the other Inn's or even lower, I strongly recommend that this place be in your top 3 choices.

Keith and Jim made us feel as though we were old friends, welcoming us our day of arrival, answering questions throughout our visit and allowing us to tour other parts of the home for anticipated future visits. They made sure we had everything we needed, information about the area included, such that our local journey to attractions and restaurants was a memorable one. We appreciated the privacy, the lush gardens and the hospitality. We will continue to recommend The Galloway House to our friends and hope to return ourselves. Linda (TN), Donna (TN), Gerry (TX)

The owners were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Apartment style lodging is fantastic! Our stay was comfortable, peaceful and the apartment is home-like not stale and cold like hotels. There were some great cafes and eateries very close to the house. The garden was beautiful and inviting. When we return to Savannah, the Galloway House will be at the top of the list! Oh, and the dogs were cool!

My husband and I spent a week in the first floor carriage house form April 3rd to 10th. Never having been to Savannah before we were both really excited to be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in such a beautiful place. Galloway House met all of our expectations and more. Our hosts Jim and Keith were extremely helpful and responsive to any and all of our questions. The carriage house was fully equipped and the house itself situated in the Victorian District, a quick 5 minute drive to the centre of the Historic District. Parking was a breeze outside the house. There were a number of high and low (but great) restaurants within walking distance. The trip was one of the best we have ever taken, and we will be back for our 25th if not before. Don't miss it.
5 on April 22, 2012
My Husband and I stayed in the first floor carriage house for 7 nights at the beginning of April. We could not have asked for more genial hosts, or a better equipped home away from home. Great restaurants high and low end within walking distance. Easy parking and a 5 minute drive from the historic district; in other words the convenience to everything downtown but just nicely out of the fray. Beautiful garden and huge front porch to relax on We're coming back to Savannah and would not stay anywhere else!.
4.6 on April 04, 2012
Everything about the Galloway House is charming- the decor, the huge front porch, the luscious gardens, the peaceful block. We felt at home for our brief two night stay and were reluctant to peel ourselves off of the patio furniture when it was time to go!
4.6 on February 25, 2012
My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and from the start to the time we left felt very welcomed into this beautiful historic home, the gardens were lovely, the apartment was clean and comfortable. There is enough good breakfast food for a start to the day and we loved the four-legged friends we got to meet. We would have loved to stay longer and will be back in the future. This is a perfect place for a non-traditional B&B. If you are looking for a unique place to stay in Savannah this is your place. Thank you for a great stay!!!
4.2 on January 07, 2012
My girlfriend is sort of shy and the last thing she wants to do is talk to strangers in the morning. So having an apartment all to ourselves was perfect. I met some fellow Bears fans on the front porch, which is the common area where everyone hangs out and she join us when she was comfortable. Bed was great! Towels are great! Food is good and location is very quite in the Victorian Historic District.

Beautiful House and Garden, wonderful host (Jim and Keith). You will truly enjoy your visit to Savannah, GA and the Galloway House is a great twist on the B & B. All you need is in "your" apartment. We really felt at home. Next time I hope to bring a new four legged family member. The Galloway House will not be a secret for long so hurry up and go!!!

The Great: they are very pet friendly...my dog was very welcomed and this was very important to me. The Good: the apartment (really a studio because there was a wood screen separating the living room and "bedroom"). The apt was very clean, especially the bathroom...which is one of the first places I check. The Bad: a continental breakfast is promised and delivered; however, there was no fruit and when my traveling companion called one of the owners to ask for more muffins because she didn't eat bagels (and I didn't like the ones offered), they knew we only had two more mornings remaining and they brought enough muffins for one morning. There also was only one choice of juice (orange juice) and I am allergic to it and after the muffin debacle I knew that there would be little or no response to a request for a different juice. The Ugly: I have been going to B&Bs for awhile now and one of the reasons I do so is the charming atmosphere and comraderie with the other guest. I also like to see the lovely old houses/mansions that we stay in. In every B&B I've stayed in there has been a common area for all guests to gather and to relax and chat. For these reasons (the bad and ugly), I will not stay at this B&B again nor will I recommend them to any of my friends, who by the way, travel extensively.
The guest is correct but as I'd explained; we have many guests who ask for a few extra muffins for their drive home, and as our baker is closed on Sunday & Monday, we can't always provide additional fresh muffins when asked on a Monday evening. Also whenever we're advised that a guest has any food allergies, we've always provided the substitute they request. Most mornings, and many evenings, the front porch is filled with both guests and their dogs but some choose instead to head out to explore Savannah. We know that when making a decision where to stay it can be difficult to remember which properties have which amenities, so our website clearly states we're not a typical b&b and that the only common areas the front porch with seating for eight and the garden with seating for four.

We enjoyed a three-day stay on the third floor of The Galloway House. We loved the apartment setting. Hosts Keith and Jim were very helpful. I especially loved the large front porch of the home. If you are looking for a more quiet spot than the down town area, this is your place! And within easy walking distance of Forsyth Park.

This was our first visit to Savannah.We arrived on April 10,2011.We had reservations for four nights in the 2nd floor carriage house.The apt. was really nice and spacious.The stairs up to the apt are steep,we did ok,but if you have any problems I would stay on the first floor.We have stayed in many B+Bs and this not one. There is no common room,so there is no interaction with the other guests.We were not even told if we could sit on the front porch or did this belong to the guests on 1st floor main house.There is no maid service of any kind.We did not expect someone to pick up after us,but we did not expect to ask for clean towels(one each) or for someone to take out our garbage.We
Our listing begins with; "Apartment 'n' Breakfast in Historic Savannah! Not just a bed and a breakfast - Four fully furnished apartments with gourmet kitchens!" There are two common areas; the backyard garden has seating for four and the front porch seats eight guests. In lieu of daily housekeeping, I live on the 2nd floor of the main house and also give every guest my personal cell phone number so I am accessible 24/7 to help with directions, restaurants, replenishing amenities, in short, helping a guest in any way I can. Each bath is stocked with a minimum of six to eight heavy Egyptian towels. While we do everything we can to ensure our guests enjoy their stay, we always hope that they will ask if there is something else we can do for them.

The Galloway House was a great getaway for the long weekend to enjoy Savannah. We stayed in the bottom floor of the home in the 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment. There were two couples, ages 30's and 50's and both enjoyed. Jim, one of the owners, met us upon arrival and showed us the place. It was exactly as advertised. The place was immaculate and the furnishing very nice. There is a king and queen bedroom with very comfortable linens and mattress. The baths were stocked with white towels and there was plenty of hot water after 4 showers. We brought our two dogs, a pug and yorkie and they loved the backyard and walks to the park/library up the street. It was very cold outside when we visited and the place was nice and cozy upon arrival. We also had a refrigerator stocked with juice and yogurt along with muffins and bagels for breakfast. I had asked if there was a blender and upon arrival there was one waiting. We didn't cook but the kitchen was very nicely furnished with utensils and dishes if we would have been so inclined. We rented a car and the drive downtown was just minutes. If it hadn't been so cold we could have walked or at least met the bus stop. Parking is right out front with no problem whatsoever. On the weekends parking is very affordable or free downtown and it is really cheaper than a taxi from the airport. It was great to come home after a day of sight seeing to a quiet comfortable apartment. We will definetly recommend The Galloway House to friends.

We highly recommend this fabulous 'home from home' discreetly and sympathetically run B&B. Keith and Jim welcome you on arrival but leave alone to enjoy your stay for however long that may be. All the necessary equipment and conveniences are in place, except for the bottle opener the Jones's broke! The accommodation consists of a very large single story fully furnished apartment which is extreemely comfortable and well furnished. Two bedrooms with large and fantastically comfortable beds, two bathrooms plus a superb verandah room and a quiet well planted garden all addn up to a little bit of paradise in Savannah. Don't miss it!

We enjoyed every minute at your house! Next time you're in Atlanta, drop by for a mint julep.

We were looking for a place to stay in Savannah that allowed dogs. It was almost impossible to find....then I ran across The Galloway House. The house was beautiful! The owners, Keith and Jim were so nice! The best part was that we could bring our dog! We stayed in the main house on the first floor. The whole first floor was ours and included two bedrooms, two baths, living room, foyer, kitchen, dining room, and even a sunporch and front porch! The decor was very nice. Books about Savannah were provided. Jim and Keith have the kitchen fully stocked. The kitchen even had a dishwasher and ice maker in the fridge. Bagels, muffins, orange juice, and wine were also included! The bedrooms had nice comfortable mattresses, clean white linens, and large pillows. Closets were large. Ceiling fans were nice! The back yard was beautiful with potted plants surrounding brick walkways and seating underneath the old Live Oak tree draped in Spanish moss. Front porch was huge with lots of seating and ceiling fans. The house exceeded my expectations in every way! Thank you Jim and Keith for allowing us to share your home!

We went because my boyfriend loves Great Danes and there are two at the Galloway House. I love beautiful houses and the house certainly is magnificent, the gardens are wonderful and Keith was a big help in his restaurant recommendations. We're planning to go back next fall with friends.

Great house and we really liked the front porch. Now we know what it's like in a real southern plantation mansion!
5 on June 13, 2009
Even though it rained a couple of days there is a nice library of dvd's, design magazines and novels to help pass the time. Also there are some cute restaurants and antique shops right around the house so that was fun too.
5 on June 12, 2009
We thought we'd died and gone to heaven! The bedding is so fine and soft it was hard to get out of bed in the morning. The pillows are actual Goose Down! I've never seen that anywhere before! They know how to do things right and we loved every minute!
5 on December 17, 2008
This was a wonderful B&B to stay at! The house was beautiful and very comfortable! Keith makes sure that everything feels like home and not a hotel! It was great to be so close to all of the fun that downtown had to offer and yet still far enough away that you didnt feel like you were stuck in the middle of it all. Keith is very very helpful and willing to accomodate his guests requests! This B&B comes highly recommended

The bed and breakfast was in a word "wonderful!" It's charm and love is the perfect 'home away from home' to have while visiting this step back in time . Whether I was sitting on the porch, relaxing on the couch, napping to recharge the bones or reading in the sunroom, the Galloway House Bed and Breakfast is a place we will always remember and recommend. My wife and I had to get away for a 5th anniversary and her --th birthday and we found the perfect spot to spend it , in a place like this it has been the perfect touch. To all who come; open your heart and let the house, the dogs, Keith and Jim love on you for a while!

WOW! We LOVE Savannah! We consider ourselves "Southerners" but the hospitality and ante bellum southern atmosphere reign true here! Keith is a gracious and magnanimous host. We enjoyed his affable conversation on the porch and adored his three 'kids' Charlie, Moose and Scooter - the Great Danes. His home / bed and breakfast is opulent and the plants are an amazing embellishment. We felt like we were staying inside "Southern Living Magazine". This bed and breakfast was the perfect getaway. Pizza Rustica was phenomenal and we had Kilwin's ice cream EVERY night for desert. Make the trip to Tybee Beach, it was worth it! Don't forget to take the 9pm walking ghost tour with Margarite at the corner of York and Bull. There is so much to do here that we feel we must return! P. S. Keith, we're glad you ditched NYC!
4.8 on May 28, 2008
We've stayed in lots of B and B's this was certainly one of the finest and most comfortable. In everything it's obvious that Keith cares more about doing things right than cutting corners! Having a great kitchen was such a treat and his three Great Danes are the sweetest gentle giants. Already we're looking forward to returning to our "Savannah home away from home" and our friends, Keith and The Boys!
