A great Savannah Vacation Rental!! The 1869 original Carriage House is a free standing cottage behind the main house with its own private entrance off the lane. It is located on the 2nd floor over the garage. Like all original carriage houses in Savannah, the carriage house is where the driver lived above the horses and carriages he cared for. The Wedding Cake Carriage House comes with a highly coveted garage parking.

The unusual design is evocative of a “Manhattan loft” set in a historic 1869 carriage house. This surprise blending of original 1920 - 1940 deco furnishings and many antique elements creates a fun, casual ambiance. The open and airy large living space showcases an entire wall of frosted artist windows, thus flooding the house with natural light. Many of the antique pieces in the carriage house were reworked to provide one-of-a-kind creations, such as the rewired antique chandelier that was found in an old barn in a neighboring county that originally only housed candles. The dining table was fashioned out of an 1860’s base and a 1910 Georgia farm house table top.

Your window view of the courtyard and the sound of the fountain add a calming touch to the carriage house. Enjoy relaxing in the courtyard after a long day of sightseeing.

AC cools to a comfortable 72 degrees.

Reviews

The Carriage House is the perfect place to stay while enjoying downtown Savannah

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 29, 2016

I had never been to Savannah before, and the Wedding Cake Carriage House was the perfect place and jumping off point to explore this charming city with my wife. The house was right downtown in the historic district next to one of Savannah’s more beautiful and famous squares (it turned out to be around the corner from the Williams Mercer house featured in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil!). We didn’t need to drive much, and were able to cover a lot of ground on foot (we did a bike tour as well as visited several architecture and art museums). I wasn’t familiar with “carriage houses” before, but found it spacious and very accommodating. The covered garage parking under the house was very convenient too! My wife and I were very comfortable in the house during the stay (my wife especially liked how soft the bed was), and I could see the place being fine for a couple more children or guests on the fold-out bed. We were impressed by the size and how outfitted the kitchen was too, and the courtyard provided a soothing place to relax by the fountain. A couple mornings, I jogged down to nearby historic Forsyth Park and did some laps with the stroller moms. All in all, I can’t imagine a much better location to explore Savannah from!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Nice and clean. Cool design and furnishings.

This was a very quiet back street. Slept like a baby. Would definitely go again. Beware: a full size car or truck may not fit in garage. Honda minivan BARELY made it. But having a parking spot right there was excellent. Leave the Hummer at home:-)
