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:

The apartment is very large, three very large rooms and a modest kitchen. The bathrooms are small but ok. It has a dark feel due to limited natural lighting and being decorated in the general idea of maybe a century ago, but not quite. The photos show different furniture than what we actually had. For example, there was no robin’s egg blue sofa, only a drab brown one in its place. The lack of brighter colorsfelt gloomy, but is consistent with the era. The bed was ok. The location for us was good, quieter street but within walking distance for most of our needs. An unexpected nice perk was eating in the restaurant on the first floor. Much better than expected for s family style restaurant. Staff was so friendly.

Reviewer Comments:

Apt was great. Location was fantastic. Rooms were large. High ceilings, great furnishings. The 1 1/2 bath was perfect for 3 people. Minor hiccup with the bldg key, but that was handled promptly by mgmt. No key in the key lock on the bldg front door, but for some reason the door wasn't locked when we got there so no problem. There was an electronic lock on the door to the apt which was easy to use. Mgmt brought a key for the bldg front door for later use as the door was locked during the rest of our stay. My only caution would be that if you are a light sleeper, the noise in the restaurant below could bother you in the morning as well as the line out front. There are stairs up to the front door and a narrow hallway in the apt, so if a person needs assistance with a wheelchair or walker, this wouldn't work. Otherwise I would recommend the rental and if I go back, I would certainly stay there again.

This apartment was spacious and beautiful. It brought us back in time as we could almost envision the people from the 1900’s living there! The house is very close to everything and on a beautiful block! Lunch downstairs at the Wilkes house was a special treat! We will be back!

Reviewer Comments:

We returned to Mrs. Wilkes for two weeks this year and loved every day. The location is superb, right in the middle of the historic district. The apartment is very spacious and has enormous windows that fill the apartment with light. The washer/dryer are a big plus, but we especially loved the 11-12-foot ceilings. We slipped right back into the 19th century. The staff at Lucky Savannah is so professional and gracious. Thank you, Josh and Amanda! Try the great shrimp and grits at Huey's on the River. Within two blocks of this apartment, enjoy Gryphon for a most unusual and charming environment and delicious food served artfully and Art's for fabulous smoothie bowls when you just need to be refreshed with a snack or light meal. We walked 2-5 miles a day to get to know the spectacular historic buildings and beautiful squares. Don't hesitate to use the pedicabs (reasonable and fun) and the DOT (free). Both are excellent. We plan to return!

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.
