Guestbook comments from the manager
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The location was awesome and we felt at home. The history about the house, along with the photos, add character to an already unique home.

My name is Mary ('The Manager'). I am also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia and I would love to help you shop for a 2nd home.

Mary Anderson purchased this house in 1985

The owner has kept this 3 story townhouse as his 2nd home because he loves the downtown Savannah life.

This home was not staged or decorated in a contrived faux antique style but instead was already a genuine treasure trove of Savannah lore and antiques. For vacation guests it was kept true to its historic roots, simply cleaned spotlessly and given fresh linens.

SHORT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as described online. The home was very authentic in regards to period pieces of furniture, etc. It was very accommodating to our group of 5 people, we never felt crowded. It was certainly within walking distance to all that historic Savannah has to offer. Would definitely stay here again on any return trips. Thanks again.

HISTORIC CHARM

  • 5 of 5
This property was the perfect mixture of old Savannah Charm. With the original brick walls, pictures of the past covering the walls, and beautiful antique furniture you really feel like you're immersed in old Savannah. The two porches were the highlight for my family during our stay; we were able to stay up late at night talking and watching the nightlife while relaxing in the rocking chairs overlooking the streets. I would fully recommend this property to anyone wishing the stay in the heart of Savannah while still maintaining the peacefulness away from the bustling nightlife.

CHARMING AND BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
I recently came to Savannah for a girls weekend and I'm so happy we chose this property for our stay. There were 4 in our party and we had plenty of room for everyone. We all loved the house and all of the beautiful furnishings. It has a very cozy feeling for such a large home. The antiques and pictures throughout are so lovely. The reviews I read prior to booking our stay referenced how clean the property was, and it was certainly very clean when we arrived! There were plenty of linens for the beds and the bathroom. The upstairs bathroom is much larger than the pictures show! I loved the windows at the top that let the natural light in. We were able to park our car upon arrival and walk everywhere. You can park right in front of the house for easy unloading - just watch the street signs for days/times to move your vehicle for street sweepers. We walked to River Street in 15 minutes or less with no problems. We had breakfast at Huey's on River Street - a must! I would suggest you get a free map of the Historic District and just walk, walk, walk. It's the best way to take in the beauty of Savannah! Clary's Cafe is on the same street as the house, just about 2 blocks away, so a very fast walk. It is open for breakfast and lunch and reasonably priced. Our favorite dinner of the weekend was at The Crystal Beer Parlor on West Jones Street. The food is AMAZING and the beer selection is awesome, too. Get the Greek Lamb Burger! It was divine. We are so glad we chose this house. We wanted to be able to experience beautiful "Old Savannah" by being right in the heart of the city. This is the way to go! One last thing, thank you, Mary, for making this whole process so easy! It was a pleasure dealing with you and we look forward to our next trip to Savannah!

Home gave us a true old historic Savannah feel - esp. impressive for our family who were from Washington State and had never been to Savannah. We were able to walk everywhere and could actually park in front of the home! The house was spotless and very comfortable.

INTERESTING HOUSE - GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a well furnished older home in a close-in suburb of Savannah; a little under a mile from the main tourist area of the city. It is large, comfortable and filled with art, books and the accumulated knick-knacks of a lifetime. In addition to two bedrooms, living room, dining room and updated kitchen and washer dryer there are two separate lounge areas (one downstairs and one upstairs) that create a very interesting and usable floor plan. Clary's Café (only three blocks from the house) is a great spot for breakfast or lunch. We also had a good experience at the Green Truck Neighborhood Pub. Whenever we went "downtown" we parked at the Whitaker Street Garage which was safe, reasonable and very convenient.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to see the 5-stars and very happy this guest was pleased with the house. I do need to point out that the official Historic District is exactly one square mile and this house is within that mile, in the southeastern quadrant. A square mile is a small area, and this is one of the smallest historic districts in the country. Calling Jones Street a "suburb" is a misnomer and unfortunately this review will be misleading to those who are unfamiliar with the area. Jones Street is indeed a residential street, and it is quiet in comparison to streets like Liberty, Oglethrope and Broughton (all 0.2 to 0.6 miles away) with bars open late into the night. I keep a nice map of the downtown area on my website for those who are curious to get their bearings. In reality Jones Street is centrally located and it is a famous landmark in our very carefully defined and designed city.

In the true 'Historic District' midway between Forsyth Park and River Street! No need to ask how far we are from the Historic District because we are smack dab in the center of the 1 square mile that makes up the official Landmark Historic District.
