Reviewer Comments:

A group of us came in to town to visit my daughter who attends SCAD. The house was perfect! Each one of my guests had their own room and bathroom. I put my son and his friends in the carriage house and our older group in the main house and garden suites. The house is elegant with so many beautiful and unique spaces, with timely personal items; just too many to name. I would recommend it to anyone and we may go back next year for a reunion. Oh and the location is perfect for walking in a walking town!

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at the wedding cake mansion. We rented the entire portfolio (mansion, carriage house and garden apartment,) to celebrate the birthdays of 3 members of our family. The property is elegant and well kept. The location was great and we walked to all of the best that Savannah has to offer. And the owner stopped by to make sure that all of our needs were taken care of and that we were enjoying our stay. We will certainly return in the future!

We give this home 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

This home is one of the photographed homes in Savannah and with good reason. My husband is an architect, and we were so impressed with the grandeur of the Victorian period restoration. There are many antiques, period furniture, and lovely artwork in this grand home. The bedding was comfortable and elegant. The home is well equipped with modern conveniences too. The mansion is within walking distance to many local restaurants and attractions. You can stay busy every minute with so much to see and do. We give this home 5 stars.

Our stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

Our family are still talking about how perfect this home is!! We had a Family Reunion with 36 people last week (we rented the Jones Street Suites also). We chose this home because of the beautiful appearance and the location of the property. The Wedding Cake exceeded our expectations in every way. The main living area was large enough for everyone to gather comfortable as a group as well as to allow us to break apart into several small intimate groups for conversation. Owner always available for any questions and concern right from our very first inquiry about the property down to the last days of our stay. The bedding and mattresses are far better than standard hotel-grade, and there are laundry facilities on-site, which was so convenient. The venue is ideal for family gatherings in that not only is there plenty of space, but the kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils/pots & pans as well as full services of china and glassware, eliminating the need to rent it from a caterer and it's very high-quality stuff! This house has an elevator too. The location is great. We easily walked to The Lady and Sons restaurant and City Market. It is just a couple of blocks from Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room and some really cute shops featured in Southern Living. If you have smaller groups - Jones street suites are perfect place to explore Savannah. We are very lucky to have found this home and simply cannot imagine calling any other place in the historic district 'home to enjoy' for our group. Thank you!

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire Wedding Cake Mansion Collection for our intimate wedding celebration at the end of September, 2013. From the moment we walked in the door, my entire family was completely blown away by how simply gorgeous and elegant the entire property was. No detail was left unattended and the entire property whispered of old world dignity and beauty. We truly enjoyed the fact that there was enough room for the families to spread out, but to enjoy company over a glass of wine or cup of coffee in the primary common areas. As the wedding couple, we loved staying in the carriage house, which offered us even further privacy. I simply can't say enough about the beauty of this mansion. It not only WAS beautiful, it photographed beautifully and helped make for some STUNNING wedding pictures.

Plus -- we think we had an authentic ghost sighting... now how's THAT for Savannah!

I planned a surprise birthday weekend for husband and a group of our friends and everything about the house and Luxury Living made it the best weekend ever! First off, the house is simply amazing. The Wedding Cake House is an architectural treasure and all within walking distance to any downtown destination. There was not one amenity that I or any guest could thing of that was not already accommodated for. It’s very comfy. The modern kitchens and bathrooms, laundry rooms and TV rooms were ideal for us and we loved how period details were maintained through-out the house. The well-stocked kitchen especially came in handy for keeping everyone fed and entertained. The elevator made getting luggage to the second, third and fourth floors. All in all, I would highly recommend this house for any sort of large gathering - family reunion, bachelor/bachelorette party, or just a get-together with friends. The pictures are very accurate. In terms of rental experiences, I cannot possibly imagine a better one. Thank you and we will be back!
