The Mary Telfair is a large parlor-level room located in the West Wing of the Inn (the Henry Dresser side). It features 12-foot ceilings, a four poster King-sized bed, and a gas fireplace. A unique touch, just inside the entrance door, is a writing area and a twin bed/settee, which makes this room perfect for a generational or girlfriend getaway. The central feature of the renovated sunny bathroom is a twin slipper tube – a warm invitation to sip some wine and luxuriate with our Lavender-Chamomile Body Scrub! There is also a separate walk-in shower.
Mary Telfair holds a special place in the hearts of Savannahians. She foresaw a purpose for her Regency-style home when she bequeathed it to the Georgia Historical Society upon her death, along with all of its books, furniture and art. The house was built by architect William Jay, who also built the Owens-Thomas House. Telfair is the oldest public art museum in the South.
