This house is so wonderful in so very many ways. We could not get over the incredible appointed kitchen with state of the art appliances or the hidden bedroom behind the bookcase in the renovated attic. Every room is gorgeous, and the details do not disappoint. There are even stunning antique hinges on the all of doors - and views of history out of every window. This house is solid, well built, perfectly maintained, very clean and luxuriously furnished. The beds and sheets were first class, too. I even found a lit makeup mirror in our bathroom - didn't expect that in an older home. It is stunning with very tall ceilings and beautiful woodwork everywhere you look - an incredible example of historic renovation. Clearly, the owners of this home love it, not just care about it. What a treat to stay on Savannah's historic park. We woke up everyday to enjoy it and take a morning exercise on it. The only thing I might mention that is worth noting is that it is not for you if you are handicapped. It is three stories high with no elevator. Otherwise, get the workout and enjoy the real deal - this is it.
We booked The Whitman as the venue for our wedding ceremony and reception, and we stayed in the house for 3 nights total. Several family members and friends stayed with us (9 people total), and we couldn't have been happier with our stay and overall experience. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the house. It truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of us. Every single room in this house is breathtaking. We woke up early each morning to cook breakfast in the wonderful and spacious kitchen, and I especially liked the whole-house audio system.
We worked with Mr. Vardzel directly in planning our wedding festivities, and he was so helpful and courteous at all times. Not only did he cook an amazing meal for our reception, but he and the staff moved furniture and did everything possible to ensure a perfect wedding day. We couldn't have done it without his help, and we're so happy we found The Whitman. It truly was a dream come true for us!
My family stayed at the Whitman Mansion for 9 days in July. The house was truly our home away from home. During the stay we had up to 14 people living there with room for more. In fact the guest cottage in the rear housed 3 adults nicely.
Bob, our host prepared a catered dinner for us on Friday night. Not only was the food terrific (Steak and Salmon) and the best collards ever, but the service at the grand dining room table was first class. With all the porches and the views of the park (which was wonderful for the little ones and adults alike) we were very comfortable. In fact in retrospect it does seem like stress truly went away with our stay. I speak for everyone in the family when I say that the house helped greatly in making our vacation in Savannah both memorable and relaxing.
Thank you Whitman Mansion.
We stayed at the Whitman for a weekend with some friends and I can't say anything else but awesome! First, it is a gorgeous place...the rooms were elegant and the attention to detail first class. Second, it is a place where you have everything you need and if you don't, they are just a phone call away.
We went out to eat one night but stayed in the rest of the time. There is a kitchen that is unbelievable (and we know because that's where we spent a lot of time, cooking and talking!) We spent a few hours on the front porch, watching Forsyth Park come alive.
I highly recommend the Whitman Mansion and can't wait to go back.
The Whitman is a beautiful home overlooking Forsyth Park. Yes it sleeps 14 comfortably, Yes the location is perfect, Yes the rooms are exquitely prepared, Yes you will feel pampered and privileged to host you and your family there...... But nothing would be as good as the experience our family had, without all of it being executed under the meticulous handling of the manager Bob Vardzel.
We stayed four nights and had Bob and his staff provide the wedding rehearsal dinner and going away brunch for our daughters wedding weekend. It was an outstanding production , not only of perfectly prepared food, but also served with southern charm and pride.
This house is absolutely gorgeous! It is a great blend of beautiful historic structure with lovely and convenient modern features. We booked the whole house, cottage included, for 3 nights for our small Savannah wedding and were able to comfortably accommodate our wedding party. Our ceremony was held in the front parlor at the bay window overlooking the iconic Forsyth Park - it was like a dream! As if the house and location weren't fantastic enough, the staff was thoroughly impressive. Bob Vardzel, one of the managers, went above and beyond helping us have the best time of our lives. He also happens to be the head chef at The Whitman and I must say, our reception dinner was some of the best food I've ever tasted! I highly recommend anyone looking for a wedding venue, event location, or beautiful getaway spot to stay at The Whitman Mansion! It was everything we wanted and so much more!
Bob and the Whitman team did a fabulous job of exceeding all expectations we had. We stayed for 3 nights and they catered our rehearsal dinner and our reception (delicious food). It was an ease working with Bob and very pleasurable. For those looking for a beautiful, intimate wedding venue look no further than The Whitman. The rooms were beautiful and we were able to have about 20 people stay at the house!
