Savannah townhome description

Welcome Home!

The McDonough House, built in 1870, is designed to be your home away from home. Vacations and getaways are meant to be just that - why be cramped in a hotel room when you can have a home - with all the amenities!

The McDonough House is just blocks from River Street, museums, fine dining, the night life, Savannah College of Art and Design and is located in the beautiful Historic District of Savannah, Georgia.

Transportation is just a step out your doorway. There are Pedicabs, horse and buggy, trolley tours, and more. We will provide you all the information. Do you want to get away from the city? Beautiful Tybee Island Beach is just a short 15 minute drive. Fort Pulaski, Fort Jackson, Bonaventure Cemetery - always famous to us, but made more so in the novel and movie, 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. It is 20 minutes from the Savannah International Airport and 35 minutes to Hilton Head.

Review Submitted: September 27, 2010 Date of Stay: September 2010
Lovely week in Savannah Ga! What an amazing city and the experience so enhanced by our stay in the charming old McDonough house in the historic district. The kitchen while maintaining its old charm is equipped in totally new modern appliances. We narrowed our choice to this site based in part on the prompt phone and e-mail hospitality extended during our search by our gracious host . When staying in a city like Savannah the experience simply would not be complete without staying in a charming old historic home. We were able to walk to many of the historic churches and other sites. Transportation is readily available also. We enjoyed our very informative Trolley tour. Younger couples could probably walk everywhere from McDonough, especially in cooler months. We drove to Tybee Island one morning. As Seniors with cranky hips and knees we had difficulty (but managed)accessing the whirlpool/shower tub combination, so this should be a consideration in your decision if you have any limitations. Otherwise, we do recommend and our rating is 4 1/2 stars due only to our difficulty with the shower accommodations. The McDonough home will be a significant part of a wonderful, memorable stay in a truly beautiful city.
Our thanks and maybe we will see you again.

Absolutely perfect vacation home

Review Submitted: May 25, 2010 Date of Stay: May 2010
We recently spent a week at this rental in downtown Savannah and found the location to be exactly what we wanted... Any cab ride was less than $10 from the home and the upstairs balcony was the perfect place to relax before or after a night on the town. Host was extremely accommodating and the extra perk of a Jacuzzi tub was great after golf or shopping . The kitchen was beautifully appointed and the high ceilings made the apartment feel much larger as did the airy layout. I guarantee after time spent at the McDonough house... You'll want to stay longer. Thanks for opening your beautiful rental home to us!
