Savannah townhome description

Please read my reviews at the bottom of the page. Never anything less than a 5 out of 5!

This beautiful row house in Historic Downtown Savannah was built in 1855. Meticulously restored and renovated, this home offers the comforts of soft beds, a fully stocked and remodeled kitchen, and Wi-Fi, as well as the historic beauty of a claw foot tub, original hardwood floors, 9 ft high pocket doors, and six fireplaces. Just a short walk away from Forsyth Park, City Market, River Street, and Broughton Street, you won't need your car to get to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Wander out the front door to Whitefield Square, so beautiful that it's the most popular square for weddings, or relax in the spacious courtyard.

Non-destructive pets welcome.

This listing is for the upper two stories of the home, which sleeps 6. Can be combined with the garden level apartment (property #313337) for a total of 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, plus sleeper sofa. The two units together sleep 10. You could also add the carriage house (property #488292) for an additional queen bed. Email or call for availability and rates.
