Savannah apartment description

Originally built in the late 1800's, this property was the first home saved and renovated in the Pulaski Ward by the Historic Savannah Foundation. Its location may be better known as home to Mrs. Wilkes Boardinghouse Restaurant, which occupies the ground floor. This Parlor Level rental is actually where Mrs. Wilkes lived in the early days of operating the Boardinghouse. Now operating as the most popular lunch destination in Savannah, we are bringing back this unique lodging opportunity.

We guarantee this will be one of the largest and finest appointed 1 bedroom homes you'll find in the Historic Savannah rental market. It is located on Jones Street, previously named by Southern Living Magazine as the 'Prettiest Street in America' and is in the heart of downtown Savannah and walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars, museums, art galleries and parks.

Highlights of our rental include original wood floors, 3 original Marble fireplaces, fine antiques, high ceilings, original pocket doors, an extra large bedroom with king bed, a separate dining room, a large living room with flat screen TV, free wireless internet, a small patio in the back, a full kitchen, washer/dryer and period architectural details throughout.

Included in each reservation is FREE lunch for 2 guests ($36 value) at the famous Mrs. Wilkes Boardinghouse downstairs. Guest will also receive special access for lunch allowing you to bypass the long line outside. The only other Savannah Visitor with that level of access was the President when he stopped by for lunch unexpectedly last year.

We are from Savannah, we live in Savannah, and we love Savannah. We want you enjoy your stay in our home, and more importantly your stay in Savannah. We look forward to hosting you. Please contact us directly with requests for more info, pictures, or questions.

                      Location

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Located in Historic Downtown Savannah, this property is located in walking distance to nightlife, shopping, restaurants, and parks.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1955

                      About the owner: Born and Raised in Savannah, the Historic District has been where I've lived and worked for the last 40 years. I grew up helping out in my grandmother's Boardinghouse, and now we are lucky to share a piece of that experience with visitors to our City.

                      Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
                      This property has been a huge part of our lives for as long as I can remember, and it seemed like the right time to share its unique history and charm with others who may appreciate it as much as we have.
