BLUE BELLE~LOVELY@1875 HISTORIC ROWHOUSE ON JONES~NEAR FORSYTH PARK & RIVER ST.

Savannah House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-7)

You'll enjoy private, 'home away from home' living at The Blue Belle on Jones Street, voted the 'Prettiest Street in Savannah' by Southern Living Magazine and one of the Top 10 Places to Visit by Conde Nast.

Our gracious, 2BR/1.5BTH private row house is nestled among moss-covered trees in the exquisite Landmark Historic District. Built circa 1875, The Blue Belle boasts two large queen bedrooms (one with fireplace) which invite you in with Tommy Bahama furnishings, soft, fine cotton linens, plenty of fluffy towels, and an ambiance that will beckon you to pen the next best-selling novel.

Perfect for one or two couples, our romantic getaway has beautiful, original wood plank flooring, four charming fireplaces, and a prestigious yet convenient location. Start your day with a cup of coffee - or tea- in the private, brick courtyard where you can soothe away your cares. Enjoy scrumptious restaurants within walking distance or prepare a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen - just add the groceries!

When you're ready to explore Savannah, it couldn't be easier than starting from The Blue Belle. Our guests continually thank us for letting them stay in such a lovely and safe location. Catch a hop on/hop off sightseeing trolley at Troup Square (less than two blocks away), or walk downtown to River Street for a day of fun-filled shopping. Take a leisurely stroll to beautiful Forsyth Park. Ghost Tours, trendy boutiques, theaters, museums and local artists are all within walking distance. With parking at a premium in the Landmark Historic District, you'll truly appreciate having your own private garage.

After a busy day touring, go ahead and relax in front of your 27-inch Sony flat screen TV, or borrow the evening's entertainment from our video or book libraries.

Slow down and enjoy Southern hospitality at The Blue Belle!

We fell in love with Savannah on our first visit in 1995. Over the years, visit after visit, we knew that we wanted to call this charming city our second home. So, nearly a decade later, we bought our lovely, historic rowhouse right in the heart of the Landmark Historic District on beautiful Jones Street. Having traveled around the world and stayed at many bed and breakfasts, we knew exactly the experience we wanted our guests to have - for The Blue Belle to be a true 'home away from home' with luxurious and thoughtful touches. We hope that it is! Although we spend most of our time at our jobs in West Palm Beach, FL, we are lucky enough to get up to our charming second city three or four times a year. Someday we will retire there and live out our days sitting in the courtyard, a nice glass of wine in hand, and enjoy watching the moss on the large oaks blow in the breeze.

Kay Koehler purchased this house in 2005

Once we made the decision to make Savannah our second home, there was never a question of where we would buy - the Landmark Historic District. Although we saw some truly beautiful Victorians at far better prices, we both wanted to live in a home where safety wasn't a concern, where our neighbors were quiet and thougthful, and a lovely square was just a block or so away. When we first began renovating, we looked out our second floor bedroom windows and saw a wedding being held at the base of the sweeping stairs of the house directly across from ours; we knew then we had picked the perfect place!

We love to walk. It's no surprise that one of the things that attracted us to Savannah is its walkability. Within minutes we can be enjoying amazing chocolate chip pancakes at Clary's, browsing through the many shops on Broughton, or testing taffy down by the river. And, if we feel like a little boogie boarding, we're off to Tybee and in the water in 20 minutes. Most importantly, after a fun-filled day, we can come home to relax in a private courtyard and enjoy quiet charm of Savannah.

FROM MISS TO MRS IN SAVANNAH

  • 5 of 5
This spot was perfect for my little sister's bachelorette weekend getaway! This was our first time to Savannah and it definitely won't be our last. The Blue Belle was in a perfect location, with the historic distric only a 15 minute walk and the beach a mere 20 minute trolly ride away. We spent an entire day at Tybee, attended a wonderful late night ghost tour, and finished up at the best restaurant in town- The Olde Pink House. The city was amazing and this townhouse was just the right spot to fully experience the southern hospitality and culture of Savvannah. I would definitely stay at this location again and greatly encourage others to do the same!

NICE LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
Excellent location, very nice place, comfortable. Only complaints-TV hard to view due to location of the cabinet and courtyard needs to be treated due to nats/misquitoes, could not sit out in evenings. Also, staircase rather narrow. Other than that very accomodative.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Yes, it is sand gnat season in Savannah; in fact, the city embraces them by naming their minor league team the Sandgnats! Although we can't change that part of the city, the good news is that the grocery store is only a few blocks away, and they stock up on repellent this time of year. Guests always comment on how comfortable The Blue Belle is, and we are glad you found it so as well. We hope you were able to find the time to explore the quaint and historic Savannah landmarks and Squares nearby to get a glimpse of how lovely our city is.

WONDERFUL MONTH LONG STAY

  • 4 of 5
Nice home, lovely street in a beautiful city. Loved the accessibility to shopping, the riverfront & all the wonderful squares. Spent many hours sitting in one of the many squares reading & just enjoying the weather & scenery. The home is very nice & comfortable. Everything you need is provided by the owners. The garage is invaluable is there is seldom parking available on the street.
The only slightly negative thing is that I did not find the street quiet as listed, always lots of traffic, cars, trucks, trolley tours, etc.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your month-long respite in Savannah! The weather must have been lovely for you to relax in the Squares and read. Because Jones street boasts beautiful homes and quaint original cobblestones, it is quite popular for horse drawn carriages, ghost tours, and the local trolley tours. We hope you had a nice trip back to Minnesota and would love to have you again!

THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY IN SAVANNAH

  • 5 of 5
Location is exceptional - you are about a 15 min walk from river street and the market square but we loved taking that walk because you pass so many neat shops, parks, and houses along the way. The house is very comfortable and has plenty of space even if you have 7 people occupying the home.

NICE STAY!

  • 4 of 5
Came to Savannah for a girls weekend and we wanted to stay close to the action, but not in a place where we had to pay $20/day for parking, so The Blue Belle worked out great for us. The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. We were there a couple days after Christmas, so the property was a little chilly. I emailed the owner and she immediately emailed me back with a solution - a space heater that they had tucked away. That did the trick and it made the room nice and cozy. My girlfriend and I walked around the neighborhood ever day and we felt safe the entire time. Some recommended restaurants: Zunzis (for dinner near the river) and J. Christopher's (for brunch). Also - keep in mind, make sure you bring soap and shampoo. Those amenities are not provided. For those with a car, there is free street parking right outside - very convenient - just make sure you park on the right side of the street on the days when they're doing street sweeping!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for letting us know about the heating issue, and we are glad the space heater did the trick. Our guests' comfort is always a priority! We immediately called a repairman and all is well.

The location is perfect for walking around, and you mentioned some of our favorite restaurants - all within walking distance of The Blue Belle!

We look forward to having you back for your next Girls' Weekend!
