A unique, luxury retreat from which to explore historic Savannah or to simply relax in true Southern comfort, this one-bedroom, two-bath cottage offers quality appointments and modern amenities. Built in the 1800s and renovated with care, the 1200 square-foot cottage showcases many pieces of original, contemporary art by highly regarded American artists of the region, while allowing for maximum comfort, quiet and privacy. The main level provides an open, spacious floor plan, but is arranged to be cozy and comfortable for a quiet night in. The sitting area has a down-cushioned sofa, chaise, and large ottoman, with a table for two tucked behind for romantic dinners. There is garden room adjoining, with French doors to the enclosed, decked patio. This room holds a convertible, double settee, and is perfect for browsing one of the several art books provided, or as a second, occasional sleeping space. It can also serve as a dining room, with a folding table available.
The patio is a lovely, secluded spot for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine A spacious, open, loft bedroom with adjoining walk-in closet and full bath is on the second floor.
This home is conveniently located near beautiful, historic Whitefield Square. Referred to as "the wedding square" because so many couples are married in its charming gazebo, it offers a Spanish-moss-draped natural space to relax or socialize with locals. On a peaceful, residential block, 535 East Gordon is just a short stroll to Forsyth Park and all of Savannah’s fine dining and cultural institutions.
This home is ideal for a couples' romantic getaway, a business accommodation (we offer discounts for longer stays) or for two friends traveling together but wanting separate sleeping areas and private bathrooms.
Clean, contemporary, architectural lines plus vintage and contemporary furnishings create a relaxing retreat with a French country feel. The artist owner has, in fact, a second home in the rural, Languedoc-Roussillon wine region of France. Light, lacquered, pine floors shine throughout. Two sets of French doors flood the home with natural light.
The home in well-equipped with a 42-inch LG smart TV downstairs, with local channels, cable channels, HBO and much more - plus Netflix, Amazon Prime and many other options via the internet. Free WiFi for up to four devices keeps you connected. There is a second 26-inch flatscreen TV upstairs with Roku, a DVD player and VHS player, and a collection of old favorite movies for a bit of nostalgia.
Relax in either of our spa-inspired bathrooms, one with an antique, claw-footed soaking tub; the other a contemporary bath and shower combination with massaging shower head. Soft, pampering linens are provided throughout; beautifully-scented wash gels and a towel warmer complete the experience of indulgence and comfort.
The kitchen has a French country feel with wooden counter tops and glass-front cabinets, but is fully equipped with full-size appliances, service for six, programmable coffeemaker (go ahead....wake up to the delicious aroma of fresh-brewed coffee!) and all the small appliances and utensils you could require for preparing a gourmet meal. A washer/dryer combination resides in a nook off the kitchen.
