Overview

Savannah Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Check-in time is 3:00 pm with check-out at 10:00 am for this rental located at 213 East Hall Street, Savannah, Georgia, 31401. Brockington Hall Cottage Suite is a cozy and different little inn in Savannah’s Historic District. Situated on a quiet tree-lined, brick-paved street of beautiful residences, it is within a block and a half from Forsyth Park and of the Mansion on Forsyth Park. It is also within walking distance (for spry people!) of most of Savannah’s famous sites.

Located about 25 blocks from the center of the City, and redone and opened in March of 2012, your Cottage Suite includes a large living room/dining room combination, a separate kitchen, a bedroom, and a small but well-appointed bath.

The decorating in your cottage suite is fresh and young, with most of the furnishings being from IKEA. There's a table for 4 with tableware, two flat-screen TVs, two IKEA lounge chairs with footstools, basic kitchen equipment, and quality linens on the new Serta queen-sized bed. Your cottage is private, with its own security system.

The informality of the Cottage Suite’s design and furnishings and its modest rental rate make it especially well-suited to the young at heart who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Savannah itself without staying in a formal space. A full kitchen with facilities for light cooking is provided, and you can bring home your treats from Savannah’s many fine restaurants for later snacks. You can cook your own breakfast or have breakfast nearby in the Cafe at Forsyth Park, which has Starbucks coffee. A Kroger grocery store is a block away down the lane, and Johnny Ganem's wine and liquor store is three blocks away.

The main house is located in a tastefully-renovated 16th Century Classic Italianate villa-style mansion built in 1882 which houses an event venue and private apartments as well. You can see more about the building on our website, Brockington Hall, and on our Facebook page, Brockington Hall Event Venue and Inn.

There are plenty of pillows and many additional comforts. All textiles are new as of 2012, and the mattress and pillows have special coverings for your protection.

A Tassimo coffee-maker is provided, with coffee, tea, sugars, Splenda, and creamer.

In addition to the private entrance, the Cottage Suite has wireless Internet access and cable TV service. You will have use of Brockington Hall’s shared courtyard and of our shared laundry facility (where use of the machines is free), off-street parking for one vehicle, and maid service at a reasonable frequency after a two-night’s stay, if requested.

The Cottage Suite is a smoke-free facility. Smoking is allowed outside the building.

A two night minimum stay is required, but we'd love for you to be our guests for an extended stay as well.

We will be pleased to show you the event venue if it is not in use. And you can roam at will, on foot or otherwise, in Savannah's Historic and Victorian Landmark Districts.

Keywords: Suite with Full Kitchen. Contemporary apartment-style unit in an Historic Residence, one block from Savannah's famous Forsyth Park and steps away from all major landmarks and sightseeing.

About Lee Mundell

My wife and I are empty-nester lawyers who inherited this fine property from my father in 2007. After renovating the parlor floor for use as an event venue, we opened one inn suite in the building, and effective March 2012, will put this cottage suite into service.

Lee Mundell purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Lee Mundell chose Savannah

We have lived in Savannah's adjacent Victorian District for 34 years, raising our family there and working in the Historic District. I have been the President of Historic Savannah Foundation and of the Downtown Neighborhood Association, and we are striving to make Brockington Hall properly maintain the historic character and feel so unique to Savannah, while opening the 4,000 square foot parlor floor for tasteful and festive events, as you can see on our our FaceBook page, Brockington Hall Event Venue and Inn. The balance of the building contains my office, five apartments, and one inn-suite, with this 'cottage' suite in the adjacent carriage house. Please come see us!

This suite is not part of the main building and was a modest apartment outfitted in the 1960's.

What makes this cottage unique

The unique benefits of this suite, at this price, are its privacy, its furnishings and decor, and its location. The suite is ideal for those who are seeking a more relaxed feel, rather than a 'period' feel, and for those who want to walk or travel inexpensively in Savannah's beautiful Historic and Victorian National Landmark Districts.

Really Enjoyed It, Very Convenient!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in the cottage behind Brockington Hall. Lee was very nice and even brought down extra coffee when he heard that we really liked our morning coffee. We like to walk, and if you don't mind a decent walk, you're within walking distance to every part of downtown Savannah. We didn't take a bus or trolley during our entire stay there. The cottage is very clean inside, and is perfect for a weekend or anniversary getaway. It's only a block from the massive Forsyth park, and less than a block from the Kroger grocery store. The only negative that took away slightly from the overall rating was the bathroom. The bathroom itself is fine, but the bathtub had not been cleaned completely before we arrived(several hairs that weren't my wife's or mine). The hot water also ran out both nights that we tried to use the tub. However, other than that, the rest of the cottage was great and I would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: We are so very sorry that the hairs in the bathtub were missed and there was a problem with the hot water! We have a very reliable person who cleans and all we can say is that everyone makes mistakes. This suite has it own water heater less than two years old and we have not previously had any complaint. We will provide a partial refund to this guest, have the water heater checked, and do better next time!

Wonderful!

  • of 5
Our stay at Brockington Hall was wonderful! We arrived just after the check in time and Lee was available within minutes of our phone call to check us in. Lee was very helpful, welcoming, knowledgable of the area and gave us many tips and information we needed for our stay. He was only a phone call away if we needed anything. The cottage was perfect for 2, very quite, comfortable and clean. The bathroom is small and will only afford one person to get ready at a time, which was expected and worked out just fine for the 2 of us. Like another reviewer pointed out, the water has a smell to it when you run the shower, I don't attribute it to the cottage but just the water in general in Savannah. The water in Savannah has a smell and odd taste...even in resturants. Order and use bottled water whenever you can (bottled water is provided in the fridge at the cottage and we used it in the coffee maker instead of tap). We loved how everything was within walking distance. It's a mile walk to Riverstreet which doesn't even seem that far as your admiring all of Savannah's beauty on your way there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back again! Thanks Lee for your hospitality and for letting us stay in your cottage!

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This rental was fantastic! Super clean & cozy. It's about a one mile walk to the riverside shops. Great exercise and wonderful things to see on the way. Also plenty of public transportation options. A cab ride will only cost about $10 round trip, minus tip. The owner was very informative and gracious. Would absolutely stay again. The water situation is not the best, but can be expected in a home of this age.

Cozy Place Full of Character

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at this unit over the weekend, and we were thrilled to find this place even better than described! Owner Lee was very helpful and always a phone call away. The place was clean, well stocked, and very charming in decor. It is tucked away privately inside a large, historic home. The location of the property was perfect for us - it was within walking distance of Forsyth Park, The Sentient Bean (hip, delicious coffee shop), and plenty of other sights and restaurants. We walked everywhere, because nothing was more than a mile from our place. We were very happy to be guests at Brockington Hall, and we would absolutely come back! Thanks a million, Lee and Melissa.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Lee went over everything we needed to know when we arrived, and told us to call if we needed anything at all! The cottage is very comfortable, quiet and private, and it was nice having a full kitchen and easy access to laundry in the main building, along with convenient parking right outside the cottage! Most everything Savannah has to offer in walking distance, and we were comfortable walking back late at night. The easy access to the fare-free bus service in Savannah was a plus a few times when we ran out of steam, once you're off the bus you can be back in the cottage in about a minute! Towels were soft, water was hot/good pressure, air conditioning was cold- things you might not think about, but they can make all the difference in a vacation rental! We were so busy that we did not get to take advantage of the offer to tour Brockington Hall, maybe next time!

Great weekend getaway in Savannah

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and Lee was a great host. It was exactly as advertised and was just perfect for my wife and me. We ate a couple of meals in and it was very nice to have a well-appointed kitchen with everything we needed. The location is also very pretty and quiet -- Lee told us we wouldn't hear anything at night when we went to bed and we didn't. We planned on using the trolley to head into the main part of the historic district, but always ended up walking there instead (except for one pedicab ride). It was a completely manageable walk even on the warm, humid days we had. Overall, a great visit!
