Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Harden House! It is not only beautiful but very spacious which provided our three generation family of eleven plenty of room. Michael has done a great job furnishing everything to make the Harden House feel like home.

Wonderful Stay

House was everything the description said. We had a group of 12. The house accommodated us perfectly. Couldn't have asked for a better deal so close to downtown.

BEAUTIFUL HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 12 of us came to Savannah for a bachelorette and this house could not have been more perfect! It had enough space for everyone, had everything we needed, and everything was very clean. Beds were comfy, AC setting was just right, bench swing was wonderful. There is a super market right across the street that made it really convenient for our large group to get what they needed. 15-20 min walk to the main part of Savannah, $5 uber. Highly recommend this place!!

The owner of this property has thought of everything! Charming and spacious inside with lots of extras including towels and amenities which added to our stay. Close proximity to the Mansion and Forsyth Park where our wedding venue was made it perfect!!

This was a perfect house for our large group of Girl Scouts!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great for walking to the museums and other places we were interested in visiting. Having the grocery store and Starbucks next door was a huge bonus! The house had everything we needed-towels, linens, dishes, and cooking supplies.

Priceless Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this Victorian Mansion was priceless! The house was like stepping back in time, but with all the current amenities. The accommodations were excellent, spacious, and comfortable. The location was perfect for a family with grandparents, children, and grandchildren: a Kroger across the street and Forsyth Park only a few blocks away. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are planning our next trip for the same location. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us.
