THE WHIPPET HOUSE - EXQUISITE PRIVATE COURTYARD

Savannah Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

The pictures don't lie. This place is absolutely gorgeous and has all of the amenities a traveler or long term renter desires. The Whippet House was originally built as a blacksmith shop in the early 1900's. It was converted into townhouses in the 1960s by one of Savannah's first historic preservationists, Helen Downing.

There is a spectacular, private courtyard with outdoor fireplace and gas grill.

We chose this location and decorated it according to our own requirements and standards. It is truly a gem of a place to stay while visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the country.

In the Whippet House, you will find beautiful hardwood floors, high ceilings, antiques, original art, oriental rugs, 3 flat screen TVs with DVD, WiFi, Ipod docking station, Marble floors, granite countertops, leather wing chair, silk curtains, etc. But it is not fussy. It is very handsome and comfortable.

There is a living room, dining room, kitchen, washer/dryer, and 1/2 bath of the first floor. All of these rooms are very handsome and comfortable.

Upstairs is a 'five-star', large, master bedroom with a king bed, dressing area, desk, antique painting and mirrors and a very handsome, private hall bath with tub/shower combination. The other bedroom is adorable. It has an antique Queen bed and dresser and an exposed brick wall from the original outside of the house. There is an adjoining bath with a tub/shower combination.

Both bedrooms have TVs with DVD and large closets.

The Whippet House is ideally located on a storybook, tree-lined street in a residential area in the historic district, just around the corner from the Mansions of Gaston St. It is only 2 blocks from Forsyth Park which is a hub of activity with lawn sports, festivals and the weekly farmers market on Saturday. The historic district is only 2 square miles, so you can walk to all attractions. As the city is a museum itself, walking is the most recomended activity while visiting. Cabs are easy to find and the free downtown 'catch-a-cat' shuttle stop is 5 short blocks away for an easy ride to or from Riverstreet or other areas. If you want to be in the middle of the nightlife, you may want to choose a hotel on River St.or the City Market area. If you want to be close to everything but have the luxury of experiencing your time here on a quiet, neighborly, beautiful street, this is it. After a busy day of touring, just a few blocks removes you to another time and place, to call your home.

Hope you decide to stay at the Whippet House. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I are native Savannians and truly appreciate our home town and all it has to offer.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2009

We live 25 minutes from the historic district and wanted to have something we could use for our own enjoyment. As we can't use it as much as we'd like, we are able to share it with visitors looking for a homelike setting while visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the country. We chose this location because of the storybook setting of charming homes in a residential area as well as it's 2 block proximity to Forsyth Park.

We just love to walk around town, slipping into shops and cafes. We also take advantage of the many festivals and concerts offered throughout the year. We usually walk to dinner and hire a cab or pedi-cab (like a bicycle rickshaw) to deliver us back to our front door. We also attend church nearby.

PERFECT SPRING BREAK DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
The Whippet House was the perfect space for our family--so spacious & tidy. We stayed four nights, but it felt like home the minute we arrived. The master bedroom was a spacious & sun drenched retreat, it was so comfortable! Great patio for morning coffee & evening cocktails.
There was so much to do within walking distance, loved strolling around Forsyth park and all the different squares admiring the architecture. My favorite adventures were Colonial Park & Bonaventure cemeteries. On the day the guys went golfing my teen daughter & I spent our time in all the great shops--our faves were the Paris Market & Chocolat by Adam Turoni. We had great meals at the Crystal Beer Parlor & Bub-Ba-Q, both a quick walk from the Whippet House.
I was planning our return to Savannah on the drive back to Michigan--we did a lot, but there's so much more to discover!!
Marie--thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home & charming city, both were the perfect getaway from the never ending Michigan weather.

GREAT LOCATION. FANTASTIC OWNER. PERFECT PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
First, I must thank the owner of the house for being such a wonderful host and help prior to and during our stay. She made life so incredibly easy for us, including providing great recommendations for dinner.

Visiting Savannah for the first time, we were looking for a relaxing place to call "home" for 4 days. A place with charm, comfort and, most importantly, proximity to Forsyth Park. After our stay was over, I am fully convinced we couldn't have found a better place. I think by the beginning of our second day we were all planning our next trip back.

Being completely reliant on foot power for the weekend, we loved the proximity the Whippet House had to pretty much everything you could ever want to see in 3-4 days. We had a wedding at Forsyth Park over the weekend, and the WH was maybe a 3-4 minute walk from the park (perfect for the women of the group wearing high heels). In addition, you are no more than a very comfortable and enjoyable 20 minute walk to the river front. The WH is located such that you can truly optimize seeing the amount of beautiful squares and houses downtown Savannah has to offer, rarely having to walk the same route twice.

The house itself is situated on a very pretty street, with little traffic or noise. It comfortably slept 5, and we never had an issue with space. You have access to everything you could reasonably need in a vacation home, including plenty of towels/sheets/washer/drier/washing machine/etc... There is a grocery store 10 minutes walk from the house, which was hugely helpful.

I can't recommend this property enough for people who may be traveling with a group. The cost, experience and comfort you will have at the WH is so superior to a hotel stay, it's hard to imagine a better experience.

Owner's Response: And to think I didn't even bribe you to write that review! I am so glad your weekend was such a success and that the Whippet House played a part.

PERFECT PLACE FOR OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting a house and I'll definitely do it again. For the same price of a downtown hotel room, we found this place and it turned out to be amazing. Our friend stayed at the Courtyard downtown on the same weekend and was bothered all weekend by a cheerleading convention. This house allowed for us to have a nice walk through Savannah to take in all the different houses and parks, then meet on River street for beverages and return safely. Very quiet area and the house was very clean. My biggest fear was for the house to smell but it was odor-free and a joy to stay there. We met all the neighbors and they all were very nice and I never heard them through the walls. I have already recommended both this house and renting houses to several friends.
Thanks for the awesome weekend!

GREAT LOCATION, WELL DECORATED AND VERY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
The Whippet House exceeded our expectations. 2 blocks from Forsyth Park, walking distance to everywhere in Historic Savannah including the River. Beautiful master bedroom and guest room and the living area and kitchen were perfect. There is also a beautiful patio with a gas grill.

Highly recommend this property.

Beautiful Brownstone unit - very close to Forsythe Park and good location for walking. A bit far from Bay Street but cab fare is minimal. We would recommend to friends and stay here again. Thank you, Marie for your hospitality.

EXCELLENT LOCATION, HOUSE IS HIGH STANDARD

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time and the house was PERFECT. It is right on the border to the very nice area - the street itself is not fancy but the next street is already much better and then you are right there in Forsyth Park in no time at all. Felt very safe at the house and walking there during the night also - no problem there.
The house itself was great and much exceeded our expectations. Highly recommendable for a weekend stay in Savannah!
