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 Savannah

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.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as represented. The unexpected bonus was the charm of the cottage and the beauty of the street and surrounding homes and landscaping. Easy to walk to many places. Quiet location. We will recommend it to friends. We made special memories with some of our family there, celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary. Myra and Larry Low

Best Little Cottage in Town

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location! This lovely little cottage was a fabulous place to stay while discovering Savannah and all the beautiful sights it has to offer. It was away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but close to enough to walk or pedicab anywhere you wanted to go!

Record breaking temperatures where hard to take but our AC was wonderful! Kitchen could have been better stocked with utensils and bowls but otherwise it was a great place to stay!

We loved the cottage on 540 east Jones St. Over all very nice clean place. Very nice roomy kitchen. Beds were very nice and comfortable. We fully intend on renting this cottage again in the near future. Thanks for a great stay.

Charming old house

  • 4 of 5

A charming old house, some additional kitchen utensils (e.g., a salad bowl) would be an improvement.

We loved the outdoor space and meeting our "cottage neighbors". The walk up and down beautiful Jones street was lovely! Can't wait to come back!
