Overview

About the property

1906 Vernacular Savannah Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

“This was the perfect place to stay for our wonderful time in Savannah!”

“There couldn’t be a more perfect place to spend our first anniversary together.”

“Truly home away from home.”

“WOW!” “5 Star clean and kept!”

“This place is very special.”

“We WILL be back!”

These are just some of the recent notes received from recent guests. Even though they have probably told you all you really need to know, let me share a bit more about the greatest hidden gem in the Historic District!

This is not your ordinary rental; this was built as a weekend hideaway for the owner (that would be me), best of friends and closest of family. I want to share it with you for the times we are not there. This cozy two bedroom cottage has it all! You can kick back in the living room while you plan your daily walking tours through Savannah, fix something special in the gourmet kitchen and then serve it in the romantic garden or at the dining room table. Then you can top it all off with a relaxing evening on the private deck with its secluded garden while listening to the fountain. And finally, after each day of your special low country visit, sleep peacefully through the night in one of the two private bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed.

Luxury furnishings, flat screen televisions in every room, free high-speed Internet access, digital cable, huge DVD library, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, contemporary slate-tiled bathroom and a luxurious Jacuzzi tub all combine to make your stay something special. Nothing has been left out of this cottage.

This cottage has an historically-accurate exterior restoration with an outstanding, luxury interior renovation inside. Experts were so taken by what had been done that it was featured as part of SCAD’s Vernacular Architecture tour as an impressive example of reuse of an historic structure for modern living. Built in 1906 and totally renovated a century later, you will not find anything like it elsewhere in Savannah.

This is probably the best value in the historic district. A fabulous home base for the single traveler, romantic hideaway for two or command central for up to four, this cottage is by far one of the greatest accommodations for discriminating visitors to Savannah. Located one block off Troupe Square, you are just a short walk to just about everything Savannah has to offer. Within minutes you are on Bay or River Streets overlooking the Savannah River, feeling the mist from the historic fountain in Forsythe Park or wandering through the many galleries and other attractions of Georgia’s Colonial capital. All the while, you can leave your cars behind in your own private, off street parking spaces for the entire visit.

Keep in mind I never charge you hidden fees like many of the others do – I do not do business like that. I consider all of my guests as family and treat them just that way.

I look forward to having you as my guests!

Great Stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

I was here is April 2017 for the SCAD parents weekend. This cottage is in a great location and has everything you could possible need. We were easily able to walk to restaurants, parks and shops. We cooked breakfast a couple of mornings and all dishes and cookware was available. The owner was readily available if needed. Thanks for a great stay!!

Wonderful place in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here and so did my dog. This is a historic cottage in the heart of the historic district in Savannah. As a matter of fact, the trolley tours stop within a few blocks of the cottage. It has a lot of charm and character as well as a rich history. There were nice parks to walk my 4-legged best friend literally within 2 blocks of the house. I met a wonderful neighbor, who was from N.C. (like me) and gave me some great recommendations on places to eat.

If you love just parking your car and walking and enjoying the area, this is the place for you to stay. I arrived on Monday and did not move my car until I left on Friday. Will definitely stay here again.

Location was better than expected. Just outside of the crowded areas. A great way to stay in Savannah. Home with history but modern kitchen, well equipped. A nice little deck and patio.

Thank you!

Had a wonderful stay at this simple, cozy, and comfortable cottage! We had everything we needed, everything is so easy to get to in the historic district. The owner was very nice and easy to communicate with! Loved the fine touches like Byrd's cookies and bottled waters on arrival. Would stay again, and thank you so much!
