A luxury retreat from which to explore historic Savannah or to simply relax in true Southern comfort, this one-bedroom, two-bath cottage offers the finest appointments and modern amenities. Built in the 1800s and renovated with care, the 1200 square foot cottage showcases many pieces of original art by highly regarded American artists of the region, while allowing for maximum comfort and privacy. The main level provides an open floor plan great for entertaining, but is also cozy and comfortable for a quiet night in. The sitting area has a convertible sofa, chaise, and deeply comfortable lounge chair. There is a dining room to seat six, with French doors to the enclosed, decked patio for outdoor dining. A spacious, open loft bedroom 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.
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 (contact the manager if you would like additional information on this rental). 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. High-speed internet for up to four devices keeps you connected. There is a second 26-inch flatscreen TV upstairs with digital channels, a DVD player and VHS player, and a collection of old favorite movies for your viewing pleasure, and a bit of nostalgia. A Bose iPod dock is also provided.
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. Luxurious 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 (to awake 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.
* Please note, children under 12 are not allowed due to the loft-style second floor and open stairways.
