For the Best Cupcakes in Savannah, Visit Mabel Francis Potter's Cupcake Emporium
Rodney Mason, FHA 203K, USDA, VA, HomePath Renovation Specialist (Prospect Mortgage)

The next time you are in Historic Downtown Savannah, be sure to visit Mabel Francis Potter's Cupcake Emporium.  There, you can find a variety of cupcakes, cookies, and other treasures.  Located in the heart of the Downtown Historic District, they are on E State St near the corner of Bull St.  You can find 12 different varieties of cupcakes baked fresh each day.  With over 50 varieties in all, narrowing those down to only 12 each day can be their biggest challenge.  Your biggest challenge will be deciding which ones to try.

The Mansion on Forsyth Park - Savannah's Victorian District
Thomas Tolbert (Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate Legacy )


Lobby at the Mansion on Forsyth ParkExterior view of The Mansion on Forsyth Park

One of my favorite Savannah Hotels, and one that I frequently recommend is The Mansion on Forsyth Park. Right across the street from Savannah's 20 acre plus Forsyth Park, a gathering place of locals and visitors this AAA four diamond award winning hotel is in one of the most beautiful spots in Savannah.


Set in a restored 1888 Victorian Mansion, this luxury property boasts 126 guest suites, an art gallery, the Poseidon Spa, 24 hour fitness center, great food and more. Stop by the Casimir's lounge and sip a martini from the rooftop marble patio while taking in the sights of Forsyth Park.


If a picnic in the park sounds better then I feel certain that the attentive staff would be happy to arrange a picnic lunch to take to the park. Have some free time and want to brush up on the local cuisine?  They even offer cooking classes.


Visit their website to find out more about them.


If I can offer any other suggestions in hotels, restaurants or things to do in Historic Savannah, Georgia to make your stay more enjoyable or tell you about Savannah's incredible real estate market please don't hesitate to drop me an email or give a call.

Complimentary tea, hors d'oeuvres and wine served in the afternoons and desserts and cordials served in the evenings.

The "Marshall House"

Located on Broughton Street, Savannah's equivalent of "Main Street" is Savannah's first hotel, The Marshall House.  At one time it seved as a hospital for soldiers toward the end of the Civil War.

The house was built back in 1892 for a whopping $25,000. There have been numerous reports of hauntings in the mansion so be on the lookout for ghosts!  Some interesting trivia is that the mansion was formerly owned by football great, Joe Namath. The Kehoe House features 13 guest rooms, each uniquesly furnished and named for figures in Savannah's History.
