About the property

Private 2-Story Carriage House on Jones Lane in Historic District

Charming two-story carriage house behind Jones Street in historic downtown. This tiny brick cottage (c.1875) includes a private lane entrance, living room, and kitchen downstairs. A spiral staircase leads to the bedroom with a queen bed, full bath and private balcony overlooking a courtyard filled with jasmine and camellias.

You can easily walk to Clary's Cafe or Firefly Cafe both are less than 2 blocks from the home. There are literally hundreds of other restaurants within 0.5 to 1 mile of this address!

We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

This property sits in what is considered the most desirable location in historic downtown. Southern Living Magazines calls Jones Street "the prettiest street in America." The carriage house is within quick and easy walking distance to all destinations downtown. Two blocks to Clary's Cafe for breakfast, four blocks for lunch at Gryphon Tea Room and cocktails or dinner alfresco at Public.

The spaces are attractively decorated with new upholstery and work by local artists.

Easily unload your car at your private entrance on Jones Lane. Parking is available on nearby streets: Jones Street, Habersham Street, Price Street. No meters or permits required.

This property can accommodate two adults. No children or pets. There is a spiral staircase from downstairs to the bedroom/bath that is a potential hazard for small children.

The back door leads to a lush courtyard with seating. This is a shared space offered to guests each morning until 5pm.

Parking is free and easy on the street nearby. No meters are on the surrounding streets so no permit will be required. You can unload in the lane right by your door and then move the car to the street parking a half-block in any direction.

No pets, no smoking.

About Mary Anderson

I'm Mary Anderson and I am a licensed Realtor, work-at-home mother and full time vacation rental reservation manager. I would love to help you arrange for your stay in this carriage house!

Why Mary Anderson chose Savannah

Savannah's beautiful Historic District is sought after because of the walkable design, the gorgeous public green space of the 21 Squares and the architecture on every single street full of beautiful historic homes, museums and restored commercial buildings.

What makes this house unique

This 2-story "carriage house" is a historic structure behind a beautiful downtown Savannah townhouse. No need to worry about noise from above since you get both floors of the house to yourself.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an amazing stay while we were there! The carriage house was very cozy but not cramped, and we enjoyed the ability to relax on the upstairs balcony. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we will be booking this spot again.

A "carriage house" means a small house located behind the "main house". The original purpose was typically to hold carriages when people had a horse & buggy instead of a car. Most carriage houses in Savannah have been converted to residential houses, offices, garages or combinations of those things.

Great location, wonderful space!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in this historic carriage house. The space was clean and great walking distance to almost everything we wanted to see. We thoroughly enjoyed eating and drinking on our private balcony. It was quiet, a great cost for the space and location, and we LOVE Savannah. We'll surely be back and strongly recommend this rental for those visiting Savannah.

Cute, cozy apt with balcony

Great location near everything in Savannah! Small but charming. Balcony overlooking courtyard was our favorite spot. TV was not working, picture kept freezing up. Free parking at end of alley. Very helpful and friendly host.

Cozy, comfortable, great location - right in the heart of the historic district.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely carriage house. It is located on Jones Lane, a small side street right next to Jones Street. Jones Street, in our opinion, certainly lives up to its reputation as one of the most beautiful streets in America.

The house is cozily small yet still contains everything one or two would need for a comfortable stay. Upon walking in there is a nicely decorated den with a TV and a small collection of books. The full kitchen is stocked with necessary appliances and cookware. We enjoyed a nice breakfast during our mornings on the upstairs patio, which overlooks a beautiful courtyard that adjoins the two homes in this property. A spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom, which is also well furnished. Also upstairs is a full bath which came stocked with towels as well as some complimentary bath products.

The house was cleaned and appeared to be well maintained. During our stay we discovered an issue with one of the pipes underneath the sink. A e-mail to Mary, our property manager, resulted in a quick response by both e-mail and phone. Her prompt efforts to resolve the issue resulted in the pipe being fixed in a matter of couple of hours.

One thing we found that we particularly liked about this house was its wonderful location. Jones Street is relatively quiet and does not get a great deal of foot or car traffic. Many of the livelier parts of the city, however, are no more than a few blocks away. We appreciated the convenience of having peace and quiet, yet having many activities to do in the immediate vicinity of our rental. Parking right around Jones Street is very convenient, too. Though we could not park directly on Jones Lane, the 300 and 400 blocks of Jones Street were free to park on and we never had trouble finding a spot. This was convenient for us as we spent a decent amount of time traveling to some attractions outside the historic district like Bonaventure Cemetery, Tybee Island and Wormsloe Plantation.

We had a wonderful stay in Savannah thanks to both the charm of this wonderful city and the pleasure of staying in this rental property. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
