Our Walk: While staying with us, we highly recommend one of the most memorable walks you may ever take through an urban landscape!
Beginning at the southern end of Forsyth Park, the “Crown Jewel of Savannah”, just a stone’s throw from your “home away from home”, walk north along the tree-lined central promenade, past monuments, gardens and the spectacular Forsyth Park Fountain.
After crossing Gaston St, continue north along Bull Street and enjoy the “Jewels of Savannah”....... the five beautiful sqaures adorning Bull Street, which enchant with history and the very soul of Savannah. The further north you walk, the further back in time you travel ....... to the year 1733 !
The Squares encountered along this route are Monterey, Madison, Chippewa, Wright and Johnson.
Sightseeing opportunities will abound !
Enjoy refreshments along the way from a myriad of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.

      Manager info

      Year Purchased: 2000

      About: We are Roman and Manderly. I`m a jack of all trades and Manderly is a licensed Massage Therapist. I`m from Germany and Manderly is from here. I`ve been traveling all my Life and have been all over the world and have to say that Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The history, architecture, and local culture of Savannah are all unique. What better way to experience the architecture and history of Savannah than staying in a beautiful historic home? I really can't think of any.

      Why Savannah:
      When I traveled thru Savannah in 1994 for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the City. I knew then that I wanted to own a piece of history. I also knew I wanted it to be on Forsyth Park, as it`s just like Central Park in NY. Of course so did everyone else. When the opportunity finally arose in 2000 to acquire the historic George Hummel House it was a dream come true. After nearly 8 years of renovation it`s restored to it`s former beauty. Come and experience History.

      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
      Our home is conveniently located in the heart of Savannah’s downtown landmark historic district overlooking Forsyth Park. Guests can easily walk to our beautiful green squares & other historic sites. There are many shops and fine restaurants within a few minutes walk.We have off-street parking , so you don`t have to wrry about those pesky parking meters. Most of our guests park there car and never use while here.
