Brockington Hall Cottage Suite is a cozy and different little suite (539 sq. ft.) in Savannah’s Historic District. Situated on a quiet tree-lined, brick-paved street of beautiful residences, it is within a block and a half from Forsyth Park and of the Mansion on Forsyth Park. It is also within walking distance (for spry people!) of most of Savannah’s famous sites.
Cancellation policy is that upon notice of cancellation THROUGH VRBO (and therefore in writing), owners will immediately seek to re-rent the property. If property is re-rented, any loss to owner will be offset against deposit along with $50.00 fee. Transfer of deposit to other available dates may be allowed.
Located about 25 blocks from the center of the City, and redone and opened in March of 2012, your Cottage Suite includes a large living room/dining room combination, a separate kitchen, a bedroom, and a small but well-appointed bath with walk-in shower - no bathtub. The total area is approximately 506 square feet.
The decorating in your cottage suite is fresh and young, with most of the furnishings being from IKEA. There's a table for 4 with tableware, two flat-screen TVs, two IKEA lounge chairs with footstools, basic kitchen equipment, and quality linens on the new Serta queen-sized bed. Your cottage is private, with its own security system.
The informality of the Cottage Suite’s design and furnishings and its modest rental rate make it especially well-suited to the young at heart who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Savannah itself without staying in a formal space. A full kitchen with facilities for light cooking is provided, and you can bring home your treats from Savannah’s many fine restaurants for later snacks. You can cook your own breakfast or have breakfast nearby in the Cafe at Forsyth Park, which has Starbucks coffee. A Kroger grocery store is a block away down the lane, and Johnny Ganem's wine and liquor store is three blocks away.
The main house is located in a tastefully-renovated 16th Century Classic Italianate villa-style mansion built in 1882 which houses an event venue and private apartments as well. You can see more about the building on our website, Brockington Hall, and on our Facebook page, Brockington Hall Event Venue and Inn.
There are plenty of pillows and many additional comforts. All textiles are new as of 2012, and the mattress and pillows have special coverings for your protection.
A Tassimo coffee-maker is provided, with coffee, tea, sugars, Splenda, and creamer.
In addition to the private entrance, the Cottage Suite has wireless Internet access and cable TV service. You will have use of Brockington Hall’s shared courtyard and of our shared laundry facility (where use of the machines is free), off-street parking for one vehicle, and maid service at a reasonable frequency after a two-night’s stay, if requested.
One off-street parking space is provided. Parking spaces are small. If you have a large vehicle, you may need to park in unmetered, on-street parking, and to be mindful of street sweeping signs.
The Cottage Suite is a smoke-free facility. Smoking is allowed outside the building. There is a small, unadorned, concrete-pad, fenced area with seating where you can smoke.
A two night minimum stay is required, but we'd love for you to be our guests for an extended stay as well.
We will be pleased to show you the event venue if it is not in use. And you can roam at will, on foot or otherwise, in Savannah's Historic and Victorian Landmark Districts.
We do ask that you let us know your anticipated time of arrival so that we can plan our days (and nights).
Cancellation policy is that upon notice of cancellation THROUGH VRBO (and therefore in writing), the owners will immediately seek to re-rent the property. If property is re-rented, any loss to owner will be offset against deposit along with $50.00 fee. VRBO’s booking fee is not refundable. Transfer of deposit to other available dates may be allowed.

About Lee Mundell
My wife and I are empty-nester lawyers who inherited this fine property from my father in 2007. After renovating the parlor floor for use as an event venue, we opened one inn suite in the building, and effective March 2012, will put this cottage suite into service.
Lee Mundell purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Lee Mundell chose Historic District - South
We have lived in Savannah's adjacent Victorian District for 34 years, raising our family there and working in the Historic District. I have been the President of Historic Savannah Foundation and of the Downtown Neighborhood Association, and we are striving to make Brockington Hall properly maintain the historic character and feel so unique to Savannah, while opening the 4,000 square foot parlor floor for tasteful and festive events, as you can see on our our FaceBook page, Brockington Hall Event Venue and Inn. The balance of the building contains my office, five apartments, and one inn-suite, with this 'cottage' suite in the adjacent carriage house. Please come see us! This suite is not part of the main building and was a modest apartment outfitted in the 1960's.
What makes this Cottage unique
The unique benefits of this suite, at this price, are its privacy, its furnishings and decor, and its location. The suite is ideal for those who are seeking a more relaxed feel, rather than a 'period' feel, and for those who want to walk or travel inexpensively in Savannah's beautiful Historic and Victorian National Landmark Districts. Situated at the south end of the Historic District, we are approximately a mile from River Street, the north border of the roughly one square mile district. We are a block from a bus tour stop at Forsyth Park where you can board a free shuttle or paid tour, a block from a grocery store, and four blocks from a liquor store (if that matters).

Clean, comfortable, prime location
Everything you need for a couple of stays. Parking is convenient. Accessible location to a bunch of shops, restaurants, etc. I would recommend for the charm and comfort you’ll receive once there.
The stay was good but the accommodations needed a clean-up. Patio was not usable - dirty. The inside was passable but really needed a real good cleaning.
We receive many positive and kind reviews so it is hard to know how to respond to outliers such as this. We make it clear to guests that they should contact us if anything is amiss and these guests rdid not. The listing makes it clear that the smoking area is a fenced but unadorned area. We do our best to clean to the expectations of others. If these guests had contacted us about cleanliness of the interior or exterior we could easily have addressed their concerns but they chose not to do so. We hope they will be more communicative when they stay with other owners who offer modestly-priced facilities in expensive locations.
Very nice, quiet, comfortable, and private.
My wife and I had a great experience staying here. Lee is very welcoming, hospitable, and informative. He greeted us right on time, showed us around, then left us to enjoy our stay. He also went above and beyond by accommodating parking for my large truck. If you’re looking for a quiet, private, and convenient place to stay in Savannah, then this is it. You walk down the sidewalk beside the main house back to your own private door where we weren’t bothered at all. The room has its own thermostat so you control your own comfort level. Access to washer/dryer if needed. Bed linens, bath towels, kitchen accessories, and an iron/ironing board all provided in the room. Kroger is right around the corner. The park is right down the road. On-street parking right around the area is not hard to find. Lots within walking distance. Highly recommend this sweet little spot for a weekend getaway.
The location in the historical district was wonderful for the restaurants and park squares. The cottage was well stocked, comfortable and nicely decorated and maintained. Lee is a wonderful host!
Super Southern Savannah Hospitality
My husband and I checked into this lovely little apartment, Friday April 20, 2018. Owner Lee Mundell met us out front when we got there, making sure we knew where to park (private parking spot right behind the house), and then showed us around the cottage, which is nestled back behind a huge old historic home about a block and a half from Forsythe Park. It is one of the prettiest homes on a beautiful old historic street. So location was perfect. Just a block off the back courtyard, an easy walk, was a nice big Signature Kroger which was certainly convenient. A free historic district shuttle stop was within walking distance as well, so if you don't plan to leave Savannah, you really would not need a rental car. The apartment was clean and well stocked, lots of towels, clean sheets, and even some food incase you get in late, and don't have time to go out to eat. Since Lee and Melissa live on site, they are always around if you need anything, or have any questions. Our 6 day stay could not have been better. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the apartment, as there are so many things to do in Savannah. We spent one day in Charleston, but it was so comforting to come "home" to our little apartment at the end of each tiring busy day. Yes the main house is a wedding venue, and there was an event one night while we were there. But, we made plans to see "Savannah Live" at the Old Savannah Theatre, and the wedding was wrapping up by the time we got home. We didn't hear anything nor did we experience any convenience because of it. It's a non-issue. We left the apartment at 4 a.m. for our return flight home, and Lee was waiting outside to take our keys, and ask us once again if our trip had been pleasant. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend Lee and Melissa Mundell's hospitality to any and all.
Quiet, cozy, bright!
Lee and Melissa are super kind and super communicative. The place is lovely and a great place to rest in between checking out the sights in Savannah. The beautiful Forsyth Park is right next door. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We enjoyed having you as a guest.
Your ground-floor suite is one block from Savannah's famous Forsyth Park, with a grocery store one block away and a liquor and wine store three blocks away. At Forsyth Park you can catch our City's Shuttle, and a moderate walk (with or without shuttle) will take you to the bulk of Savannah's sightseeing spots and shopping in the Historic District. Also it is on the edge of Savannah's Victorian District, the first 'suburb' of the City, originally served by trolley, where you'll find our 'painted lady' houses and small businesses. The suite is small and we do not allow parties.
