Wedding Cake Mansion
Wedding Cake Mansion
Long-time Savannah residents named this historic home the Wedding Cake Mansion because its elaborate white bay window with ornate stained glass and white ornamental ironwork resembles a sumptuous "wedding cake." A French influence is carried throughout the mansion with breathtaking 19th century Chrystal chandeliers, European antiques, art and decor.
The marble master bath showcases an imported stained glass window over the 6-foot whirlpool bath, French fixtures, antique sconces, double vanities, and a two-person shower.
The remaining eight bathrooms have such adornments as Italian mosaics, antique vanities, hand-painted murals, body sprays, and more. The mansion’s penthouse floor takes on a 1940’s “Bogey and Bacall” movie era theme, extensively using mirrors in furnishings and appointments to create a “Glamour Suite.”
Two gourmet kitchens with stained glass windows, custom designed cabinetry, top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops will make the everyday chef or the culinary master feel at home.
The Wedding Cake Mansion sleeps 10 guests. The parlor, third floor and fourth floor are accessible via a full-service elevator.

The wedding Cake Mansion was the perfect place for a girls trip. From the welcome bottles of wine from our wonderful host to the sumptuous linens & towels. We frankly didnt want to get out of bed. The house is located on the best street & centrally located to all we wanted to do. We were able to walk to River Street, the Market, Also close by were boutiques, amazing cafes & rooftop bars all at the recommendation of the owner. Well appointed chef kitchen, and a beautiful courtyard for a lazy evening next to the fountain. If I could give it more stars I would, we will be back!”
Southern beauty and hospitality at its finest
We had the opportunity to stay in the Wedding Cake Mansion recently and found it to be every bit as beautiful and welcoming as it appears in the pictures. Centrally located to Forsyth Park, Mercer House (featured in the book, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”) and several other must-sees in the Savannah area, the home is within walking distance of commercial trolley drop offs/pick ups, and/or just a quick car ride to River Street. It would be difficult to find a better place to stay in the area. Furnished beautifully with period piece antiques in keeping with its historic status, staying here is the closest thing to spending time in a magnificent Southern mansion (a Southern mansion with central air conditioning, that is; a must for visiting Savannah in the summer). The bedrooms are gorgeous and there is even a full kitchen on the fourth floor as well as a marvelous view from the back bedroom on that floor of the steeples of St. John the Baptist cathedral. While there are a lot of stairs to climb, the home is equipped with an elevator. In addition, our hostess was even gracious enough to provide us with a couple of bottles of wine to welcome us upon our arrival. So if you are ever in the Savannah area and looking for a fantastic lodging that is not just a place to stay but an experience in and of itself, the Wedding Cake is the place.”
This is the 2nd time we stayed in the gorgeous mansion. I had both grandchildren baptized in this house. The furnishings are exquisite, Tammy Jo does everything first class. The location allows for easy walking to so many historic places in Savannah. We love this home!”
Definitely Luxury Living in Savannah
Third Home at its finest. The renovation of this late nineteenth-century mansion was superbly accomplished with outstanding attention to detail. This home is extremely well appointed, comfortable, and elegant. Our delightful hostess dropped by to say hello, bottle of wine in hand - always welcome. This fabulous home is perfectly located in Historic Downtown Savannah minutes walking distance from a wide choice of restaurants and bars featuring talented mixologists. Five shining stars for this location. ”
The owner has done a perfect restoration on a wonderful house, and it was truly a privilege to stay there. The location is in Savannah's historic district, and everything is within a 20 minute walk. We certainly hope to return when it is offered next.”
Savannah's Wedding Cake Mansion
This home is one of the photographed homes in Savannah and with good reason. My husband is an architect, and we were so impressed with the grandeur of the Victorian period restoration. There are many antiques, period furniture, and lovely artwork in this grand home. The bedding was comfortable and elegant. The home is well equipped with modern conveniences too. The mansion is within walking distance to many local restaurants and attractions. You can stay busy every minute with so much to see and do. We give this home 5 stars. Patty and Tom Crews ”
