This place is beautiful! With all the porches and verandas you can sit outside and relax all day. The rooms are charming and romantic, with a wonderful cozy feel. Collin and Kim were so sweet and incredible chefs for breakfast. Our stay was perfect!

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 October 2016

We had never stayed at a B&B before, so were apprehensive. The staff and the house made us feel right at home. Breakfast was top notch . Loved to sit on the spacious front porch, especially the morning it was Raining. Nice happy hour that we got to know some of the other folks from around the country.

The house and rooms are lovely and Collin was very nice to deal with when planning our trip and checking in. The areas of the house that we saw were clean and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and the location of the B&B was terrific. You could walk everywhere in the city and we never had to call for...

Enjoyed our stay at Dresser Palmer, if you are looking for non-mainstream and romantic, this is a good choice. We stayed in the Wysteria room below the main building and it was great having our own entrance.

Hey Steve W! The St. Patty's Day was the best in several years. Glad you came to celebrate with us! That room is a favorite among many new and repeat guests. That private feeling is just the thing for people that don't want to bother or be bothered. Come see us again next year, or sooner! - Thanks from all...

We loved the Dresser Palmer House! Email correspondence before our trip was great. They offered several suggestions and answered all of my questions right away. When we arrived at the house, we were told that our room had been upgraded and we were given the Johnny Mercer king suite since it had not been booked and it was our anniversary...

I spent one night at the Dresser Palmer and it was a great experience. The quality of customer service is unmatched. I spent 3 other nights at another bed and breakfast which was nice. But the Dresser Palmer is in a class by itself. They were very accommodating with my unusual check in and check out times. I had a...

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the Inn, especially the morning breakfasts, Honor Bar, garden area, and front porch! While the Inn is very nice and breakfasts are wonderful there are some things we noticed that revealed that the Inn is not managed with a firm hand. Food stored in the refrigerator was not properly covered or contained, walls in...

Wonderful location but overall disappointing, particularly given the price. Our rooms (expensive and said to be the least) were dark, shabby and the several seriously dead flies on the bathroom windowsill did not inspire confidence. A pleasant enough welcome. This was in the slow season and we sensed that staff were not up to their best. Sugar spilt in the...
