Guestbook comments from the owner
we really enjoyed your carriage house with it's terrific location and can't thank you enough for providing such a beautiful place to stay. We enjoyed our day in Savannah yesterday, plenty of walking, some new shoes for **** then dinner and drinks out with my Aunt who lives about two blocks away on Taylor Street but not before we all enjoyed a bottle of wine in your courtyard. We would definitely like to come back up soon!

I grew up and went to college in Michigan. In 2001 I came to savannah with my sister for a long weekend over my birthday. I sat in Chippewa square drinking a cup of coffee and told my sister that Savannah was my future, she laughed. I returned to Michigan, sold my house, quit my job, put my dog in the car and moved to Savannah. I didn't know one person. I have never been sorry, not for one minute. Within 2 years both my mother and sister also moved to Savannah. Since then 2 more of my close friends have also moved to Savannah. I guess its contagious.

Jacqueline Mason purchased this cottage in 2001

When I visited Savannah the very first time, my sister and I walked past the front house over and over again. It was for sale, and we loved it. When I returned to Savannah, we decided my sister would buy the front house which had been turned into 4 apartments, sell me the back house and eventually she too would move to Savannah.

Since I didn't know anyone when I arrived I made a net work of friends by hosting a dinner party every single Saturday night for a year. Sometimes upwards of 35 people would show up for dinner and eat in the courtyard. That entire year my little carriage house was under renovation, but it didn't stop us. I continued to host frequent dinner parties and this small but happy home became the the meeting place for many people. I only recently moved out of my little house to get married, and look forward to making my new house, one block away, into the same kind of happy home that brought so many people together.

Originally the carriage house was barely livable. The downstairs was broken up into 4 rooms the kitchen was a dorm refrigerator, and a 2 burner stove. That didn't scare me because I have a degree in interior design, and a beautiful courtyard. I personally worked on my little house taking out walls, ceilings, etc. I had a vision of what it would look like and just kept moving in that direction. I think if it hadn't been for the courtyard I would have felt differently. Even while the house was packed to the rafters while under construction I used the courtyard as a place of peace. In Savannah we spend so much of our lives outdoors. I wrote the first chapter of my novel sitting in that courtyard. It is definitely a place where I find inspiration. Savannah is full of magic, and that courtyard is the perfect place for it to manifest.

Rainy Weekend in Savannah

  • 5 of 5
We arrived Friday for a weekend getaway in Savannah. Location was perfect as we found ourselves just behind Jones Street and close to everything we wanted to get to. The unit was just as described and matched the photos on the website. Carriagehouse was well setup with all the items we needed for the weekend from cooking utensils to towels to soap and made us feel at home almost immediately.

We ended up texting the owner for help getting through the passage under the main house and she was very quick to respond with directions.

Saturday afternoon while we were exploring town it began to pour rain and we decided to head back to the house to relax for a while as the rain passed. Once home we had changed and were milling about and noticed a little water on the stairs but thought at first we must have brought it in with us when we returned. Then much to our surprise we started noticing some puddling on the floor underneath the stairs. We soon discovered that it was raining so hard outside and the wind blowing so hard that it was forcing the rain through the exterior and into the house!! We quickly moved things out of the way, threw down the towels we had and alerted the owner of the water. She responded immediately by coming over and bringing more towels to help us clean up. While there we ended up chatting for a long time as she gave us several amazing recommendations for local restaurants to try while we were in town.

Overall our stay was amazing and we will definitely be coming back to stay here again. Couldn't ask for a better property or owner to deal with.

Great time in Savannah

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this charming cottage. I took my parents (and two small dogs) there for a long weekend and we had a blast. The cottage is extremely well located, making it possible for us to walk everywhere. Parking was easy and free around the area. The cottage had everything we needed and is beautiful! Thank you for the great hospitality!

An Amazing House in an Amazing City!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Carriage House. The description and photos are exactly as described. This quaint home is clean, has everything you will need and very comfortable. We are a family of 4 and had plenty of room. This was our first time using VRBO/HomeAway and all email/phone correspondence with Jacqueline was timely and she answered all our questions. This was our third time in Savannah and the location of the Carriage House is perfect! We parked our car and walked everywhere!
Some traveling tips…
Dining (in no particular order, just our favorites)
1) Fire Street Food - very, very close to the house, reasonably priced and quick service, try the California rolls, noodles and dumplings!
2) Parker’s Market - very close, small grocery store, great to get breakfast items and snacks
3) Clary’s Café - literally across the street, diner type restaurant, try the eggs Benedict and highly recommend the honey pecan waffle
4) Zunzi’s - a fantastic sandwich restaurant, try the “Godfather” and the “Conquistador”
5) Crystal Beer Parlor - close walk, great food
6) Leopold’s Ice Cream - for famous ice cream
Sightseeing (not all on this trip but we have done all the following)
1) Savannah Dan Walking Tour (you can find contact info on Trip Advisor), highly recommend, small tour group, very informative and entertaining
2) Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tour – Tybee island, they are very flexible, we had to change for rain
3) Ghost Tours - Blue Orb Ghost Tours (walking tour, highly recommend) & Hearse Ghost Tours (was just ok, but no walking involved)
4) Tybee Beach Ecology Tour (you can find contact info on Trip Advisor) – from Tybee Island, an amazing day with an ecologist who explains all the creatures you will find on the beach/ocean
Can you tell we love Savannah and will be back soon to stay in the Carriage House!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I could not have picked a better spot to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary! The carriage house is beautifully decorated and furnished. The cozy atmosphere made us feel right at home! We were able to walk to just about anywhere we needed. Clary's Cafe is right across the street and has delicious coffee, breakfast foods, and lunch foods. Kroger is about a 4 minute drive away. The Old Savannah Tour Bus was a great way to be introduced to the city of Savannah! Some of our favorite restaurants were Zunzi's, Six Pence Pub, Moon River Brewery, and Tequila Town. You can't go wrong staying in Savannah in this gorgeous place!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
There really is no other way to describe this place. It's perfectly located, perfectly decorated, perfectly maintained and managed, in a perfect city! It was our 1st visit to Savannah, and definitely not our last. We walked everywhere. Didn't use the car once. Jacqueline was very helpful & hospitable. A perfect anniversary weekend!

Perfect girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We could not of asked for a better place to call "home" for our girls weekend! Everything was just as described and so much more. We spent many hours in the back courtyard, soaking up the sun and enjoying the intoxicating smell of jasmine. Thank you so much Jacqueline, we plan on taking trips to your lovely oasis for years to come!
