Historic District - South House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

SVR-00175

One of Savannah’s most photographed and famous houses. It is truly one of the finest homes in the South East. It is now available as a luxury vacation and corporate rental. Live in the lap of Luxury that few experience on Monterey Square in one of the country's most magical cities. The Mansion accommodates a maximum of 20 guests.

The prized 'Wedding Cake Mansion' is the jewel of Monterey Square. The historical square was made famous from being featured in the movie 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. Monterey Square is unquestionably the most beautiful square in Savannah. The square is graced by mansions on all corners, draped in Spanish moss and anchored with historic monuments. As guests of the Wedding Cake Mansion, you get to enjoy the views of the square from the comfort of this amazing historic masterpiece.

This 1869 2nd Empire Baroque Home takes your breath the minute you see it. The elaborate white bay window is so ornately decorated with stained glass windows and ornamental iron work that the long time residents of Savannah have always said it resembles an elegantly decorated 'wedding cake'. This architecture is very unique to Savannah with only a few examples in the Historic District. The French influence is carried throughout the house with french antiques, art and decor. The bathrooms are the definition of Luxury. The marble master bath has a custom stained glass window over the 6 foot air bath, French fixtures, double vanities, two person shower and a wall of mirrors to make this the lavish escape only found in multi-million $ estates. The remaining bathrooms have such adornments as Italian mosaics, antique vanities, hand painted murals, body sprays, - too much to list!!!. One special bathroom has been coined 'The Glamour Bath' -seeped in 1940s glam and opulence. Lay in the 6 ft soaking tub while overlooking Monterey Square. It just doesn't get any better!!

The courtyard is a special oasis with a fountain graced by a marble statue from Italy. Beautiful landscaping and seating make this the perfect spot for relaxing in luxury.

Full service Elevator to all 4 floors

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!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

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!

This house is a true Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience at this home. My friends and I were looking for a place we could get together to celebrate our 35th birthdays. We wanted an affordable place and we came across Luxury Living Savannah’s listing. It was beautifully furnished, very clean, spacious and included everything needed for a wonderful stay. The kitchen had all the amenities necessary to prepare a nice dinner. The home itself is very well maintained and owners provided all the essentials. They also left us coffee which saved the day for all of us on Sunday morning :) The location is great, a short walk to all restaurants and shops… In terms of rental experiences, I cannot possibly imagine a better one. 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.

Wonderful home for our large group attending family event

  • 4 of 5

We found the Wedding Cake House on VRBO back in July for our October family gathering in Savannah -- we needed a large place in the Historic District that could handle 15-20 of us, and allow us to have more friends and family visit at a welcoming place. The Wedding Cake House lived up to its grand presence -- for all of us. My family rented all the units -- main house, guest quarters downstairs, and carriage house -- for three days, while I spent the entire previous week in the carriage house, so I saw more than the average short-term guest -- including witnessing the poor behavior of previous guests. The owner has clearly put her heart into renovating and updating this house -- after all that work, making it available to the public is something of an act of faith. Her effort shows -- both in the house itself, and in the effort they make (even from Chicago) to make the experience work for guests. The cleaning crew (between tenants) was positively heroic.

People may have some sticker shock from the nightly cost, but do the math -- you can put up an army in this comfortable, beautiful, convenient place. (The master bath alone is worth the visit.) The place is tastefully appointed, well wired (cable and internet), and has glass-topped counters and tables so you don't worry about damaging the furniture with your cocktail. It's a place with lots of range - if people get tired of socializing there is always a comfortable place to retreat to.

If there are drawbacks they relate to a leaky dishwasher (likely fixed by now) and to the fact there are only two available parking spots in the house's garage - but in a cramped location like downtown Savannah, the parking problem is not unique to this house.

Anyway, we recommend the house and its additional units for large groups attending weddings or other family events -- we loved it. Thanks very much.
