Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Built toward the end of the 19th century, this one-bedroom, one and one half-bath property is as rich in history as it is charm. Once the home of Mrs. Wilkes, proprietress of the famous Boarding House and still-operational Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, this parlor-level condo offers a unique stay for up to four Lucky guests. Wake up every morning to beautiful Jones Street, where cobblestones and ancient oak trees dripping in spanish moss compelled Southern Living Magazine to name it the “Prettiest Street in America.”

The original hardwood floors and 12’ ceilings and tasteful interior decor make this home-away-from-home warm and inviting. The large living area has a flat screen TV and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. Three ornamental marble hearths throughout the home are complemented by fine antiques and elegant furnishings. Pocket doors separate the parlor from the dining room, which has seating for four. The galley-style kitchen is fully equipped with all you’ll need for a weekend getaway or extended stay. The large, elegant bedroom has a king-sized bed with soft, luxurious bedding.

The Wilkes House is an ideal location to call home while exploring the varied sights and activities around the Historic District. Located in the middle of our bustling Design District, stylish shops dot the streets among several historic homes open for touring, including the Mercer Williams House and the childhood home of Flannery O’Connor. With a three night or longer say, you’ll receive one free lunch for two at Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room, where you’ll dine like a local and feel like family!

Why Lucky Savannah Loves this Property:

- Take a leisurely morning stroll through nearby Forsyth Park, Savannah’s largest green space and a popular location for weddings and festivals.

- A small patio in the back is the perfect spot to enjoy a fine Savannah morning and cup of coffee.

- This home has a washer and dryer for added convenience.

Sleeping Configuration:

Bedroom 1: King Bed

Living Room: Queen Sleeper Sofa

*Guests receive two complimentary meal tickets with every three-night booking. Please contact the Mrs. Wilkes Restaurant directly regarding seasonal hours.

Reviewer Comments:

Me and my husband stayed at Ms. Wilkes House and absolutely loved it. Pictured as advertised. Very antique and spacious. And to top it off the lunch downstairs at Ms. Wilkes restaurant was some of the best southern cooking we have ever tasted. Especially the fried chicken. We have been telling all our friends about our stay at Ms. Wilkes house. Shout out to Josh for being very helpful in getting us situated.

Reviewer Comments:

We have been staying at the Wilkes House each December for the last several years for my wife's birthday. We enjoy it so much that we don't even bother looking for any other place to stay. I appreciate that the front door lock has been fixed. It was always very tricky trying to get it open. The only thing that I would recommend is upgrading the couch. It is very uncomfortable to sit on, and there is no place to rest your feet. That's a small issue, but it would really make a big difference when you come back in from a long walk and just want to sit and relax for a little while. Overall, we had a great time as usual, and we can't wait to come back in Dec. 2018.

Nice location, nice place. Had a few bumps. Door was locked when we tried to get in. Heat wouldn't work at first. Management was able to resolve things eventually.

It was more than I dreamed of, and more beautiful than the photos. If you stay here do yourself a favour and go to the Mickve Israel museum and see how your bedroom is a part of Savannah Jewish history! Lucky Savannah were wonderful with their reliabilty and their communication. I will definately be back, and will definately recommend to everyone I know. Thank you for a stay i will never forget!

The accommodations were lovely! This was so much better than staying in an anonymous hotel in which, when you wake up in the morning, could believe you're in any city in the country. Beautifully appointed, private, close to everything!

Reviewer Comments:

Our first time to Savannah! the Wilkes house is charming, cozy, and beautiful! Loved the history and wedding picture in the bedroom! Its close enough to be walking distance but far enough away to be peaceful! The only thing i would add is there were no kleenex tissues anywhere and no pen with the guestbook ( we had to use a sharpie, the only thing i had) Also as a first timer we missed lunch downstairs because we didn't now she was only open on weekdays, we had reservations for a tour the one day we could go.
