Guestbook comments from the owner

Blown away by the Savannah Oak in your front yard. Really had a hard time finding another in all Savannah that was as beautiful. You have a charming cottage, clean well maintained and a georgeus well maintained property. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area! I will always think of it and the "South" with fond remembrance.

I want to say that we truly enjoyed our stay at Oak Grove. My wife and I needed some time to relax and enjoy some time away from home and our busy life. When we walked into the cottage we felt right at home. The atmosphere was so warm and inviting. My wife was able to sleep til 9 every morning and that is something that she have not done in a long time because of work and school. We loved the serenity of the cottage. We were able to see how much Ann loves this cottage because of the little things she used to make this cottage feels like home to all of the visitors that pass through. We really enjoyed sitting on the screen in porch and listen to nature at its best. There just not enough words to describe this place, you just have to visit for yourself. We will be back!

Thank you Ann Barton for opening up your cottage to the public.

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Oak Grove Cottage. The site itself is magical. The Trees! We could have spent a longer stay just getting to know them. The history and soul of the cozy little cottage made the complete package. The "Rustic Moon River Cottage" title is perfect, that's exactly what it is, and has been preserved as. This place has been loved for a long time, and you can feel it. Perfect little touches everywhere. It is extremely comfortable and the breeze through the screened doors made afternoon napping imperative.

We did a bit of running around while we were there. Tybee, downtown, fishing out of Savannah bend marina, visiting family in The Landings, and the location is primo. Don't overlook Sandfly right up the road for local eats etc.

Can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return. Loved it.

Oak Grove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a unique and peaceful stay! We had two couples come and stay for the weekend! Everything was just as promised and then some! The pictures do not do this cottage justice. Such a cozy and peaceful setting, close to beach and downtown Savannah. We enjoyed the solitude of being outside of the city but close enough to Uber in. Huge, majestic oaks, beautiful marsh land and especially having fires in the evening. Anne was a delight to work with. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.... we will definetely be back!!

Cozy, beautiful, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

A great place removed from the city life. I would wake up in the morning, drink a cup of coffee and read my book of the week on the screened in back porch while listening to the birds sing. Close to Savannah but without the loud hustle and bustle of the city. Also, cheap! Much cheaper to stay at this peaceful home than to stay down town. I'm definitely coming back if Ann continues to share such a lovely place.
