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 10 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.

Two gourmet kitchens with stained glass windows, custom designed cabinetry, top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops will make the everyday chef or the culinary master feel at home.

The Wedding Cake Mansion sleeps 10 guests. The parlor, third floor and fourth floor are accessible via a full-service elevator.

No more than 10 guests are permitted in the Mansion. More than 10 guests at the property will be considered an event. Events must be approved in advance at the time of booking by the owner. If approved an additional Event Contract and fees are required.

5 Couple Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 couples that have traveled together for years and we've stayed at many VRBO properties and we must say this is the best we’ve experienced. The description and the pictures really do not do the house justice. The antique furnishings, art and tasteful design are first class. There were 5 couples and each had an equally nice suite and lavish bathroom. No one felt like they got a lesser room. Everyone LOVED it! We stayed in one night instead of going out so we could cook in the fabulous kitchen and enjoy the home and courtyard. The kitchen had every gadget and all equipment needed right down to a warming drawer. As a group we never visit the same place twice, but we are going to make an exception and return to The Wedding Cake Mansion!

Highly highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed 5 nights at this elegant classy property. The home in nothing short of a work of art and masterpiece. Impeccably renovated to the most intricate detail creating an inviting and awe striking experience. From every detail of plaster ceilings and moldings to ultra comfortable bedding this place has it all. Plenty of space with a well equipped kitchen and showers to lose yourself in comfort. There is a relaxing private outdoor court yard with a fountain to enjoy the Savannah evenings. If you want to feel like royalty this is your place. The property is in a very upscale area of Savannah surrounded by parks, squares, and restaurants. To get around, use the Pedicab to see Savannah at its best in a romantic comfortable setting. We left this place planning our next trip back to the Wedding Cake Mansion. Highly highly recommended.

Wedding Cake Main House

  • 5 of 5

The owner has done a perfect restoration on a wonderful house, and it was truly a privilege to stay there. The location is in Savannah's historic district, and everything is within a 20 minute walk. We certainly hope to return.

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.

Perfect historic mansion and location for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I brought my entire family to Savannah for a family reunion and we rented both the Washington Square House and the Wedding Cake Mansion for our extended family that came from all over the world. It was an amazing experience. Luxury Living Savannah was very helpful with recommendations of restaurants plus we had a private chef one night. The location of each property was easy walking to everything. We are already planning with Luxury Living Savannah for our next family reunion in 2014.
