About the property

2BR/1BA Circa 1879 Cottage in Landmark Historic District of Downtown Savannah

This renovated historic cottage has a King bedroom (with its own TV), a Queen bedroom and a small Living room & dining room + kitchen with gorgeous granite countertop.

Located on 'the prettiest street in town', Jones Street which is central to the many tourist attractions of the Landmark Historic District and walkable to everything. The northern boundary of the Historic District (River Street) is half a mile away heading north. The southern end of the Historic district (Forsyth Park) is half a mile away heading south.

A King bedroom and a Queen bedroom are side by side. French doors with heavy privacy curtains on both sides of the glass separate the bedrooms. Families can open the curtains & doors to adjoin the rooms if desired.

The newly renovated bathroom is located off the kitchen for equal access to both bedrooms. A pullout sofa is in the Living Room. Full size washer and dryer. This authentic historic railroad worker cottage is beautifully updated and preserved for the comfort of modern day guests.

Newly launched in 2015, this unit is on the same block of Jones Street as our very popular VRBO 345323, with the same on-street free parking.

Parking is on-street and does not require a permit or decal (public parking is free here) as this street is not metered. Rear yard is shared with 2 tiny studio cottages.

About Mary Anderson

Hi I am Mary and I have lived here in Savannah since 2003. Over the years I have gotten to know the downtown like the back of my hand and I love the history and the beautiful homes. I am a licensed Realtor, work-at-home mother and full time vacation rental reservation manager. I am the owner of the Savannah Luxury Rentals vacation rental website.

Mary Anderson purchased this house in 2015

Why Mary Anderson chose Beach Institute

I chose Savannah because of the big city feel of the events and tourist traffic combined with a small town sense of knowing people everywhere I go and the relatively tiny one-square mile walkable downtown Historic District area. I love the familiarity of everything combined with the constant influx of new energy from the college and the visitors from all over the world.

What makes this house unique

This historic railroad worker cottage compound is located on a block of Jones Street where I lived for several years. Tourists and residents alike are drawn to the adorable cottages of downtown Savannah, many of which were built to house the working men who constructed this amazing city.

Adorable Cottage in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family of two adults and two children. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but it is close enough to walk to the more action packed areas of town. The beds were super comfy, it was clean and it had everything we needed. We only used the kitchen to make coffee and cereal so we can’t really attest to how well equipped it was. Parking was never a problem and we always felt safe. We will definitely try to book this cottage again the next time we visit Savannah!

Cute house. Great patio and location

  • 5 of 5

Very cute house that made our girls weekend with 4 women very comfortable. Beds were very comfortable and the patio in the back was great for coffee and chatting in the morning. Good location. Easy to walk to restaurants and shops. Adorable neighborhood. Laundry on site was a nice perk too. Great price for what we got.

Perfect location! Great find!

  • 5 of 5

Three girlfriends from High School (class of '68) spent two nights here. It was great! Very comfortable and clean. It is in a safe, walkable area of Savannah. Parking is on quiet street, and spots are easy and available. Great weekend..we took a short drive on Monday to view the total eclipse in South Carolina.

Sweet in Savannah!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is adorable . My sister and 2 children (23 and 16) stayed here. for a week's vacation. This cottage had everything you need for a comfortable week and my daughter said her bed was the most comfortable she had slept in and would miss it when she got home. Kitchen was furnished with everything one would need for cooking and the decorating was nicely done. Close to the historic district and River Street so the location cannot be beat. I would definitely stay here again on a visit to Savannah!
