There is Wi-Fi throughout the house. An enclosed patio is right off the kitchen - a sunny place for a relaxing meal. Upstairs, we have two bedrooms. One with an antique double size mahogany bed and the second with two twin brass and iron beds that can be put together to make a king size bed. Sheets are available for the beds either as twins or king size.

About Terry Clark

Terry and I currently live in Clinton, CT. Terry recently retired after 30 years of teaching math at a boarding school in Washington, CT. I own a school for young children, CAST Preschool, in Woodbury, CT. Between us we have 6 children. Most of them are grown, but Skyler is 19 and is a Sophomore at Washington College in Chestertown, MD. Terry has impressive collections of Native American relics, old coins, bottles and just about anything 'collectible'. My interests include singing, songwriting and world drumming. Together, Savannah offers us both history and culture and the nearby beaches of Tybee Island. Our home in Savannah reflects our tastes and interests. It is comfortable and cozy and is decorated with 'treasures' that we have collected over the years.

Terry Clark purchased this house in 2006

Why Terry Clark chose Savannah

When Terry and I first visited the Savannah area in 2005, we were instantly drawn to the city of Savannah - especially the Historic District. The beautiful squares, the Spanish moss hanging from the giant oak trees and lining the streets - the restaurants, galleries, and small interesting shops drew us to the city. And the real bonus was - just 20 minutes away is the beach! Savannah really has the best of all worlds! Every time we visit, we find new and wonderful things to do and to explore. We keep bicycles at the house so that we can get around the city with ease (there is literally, hardly any traffic on many streets)...and when we get the urge for sand and surf, we jump in the car and head out to beautiful Tybee Island!

What makes this house unique

Our home - at 515 E. Huntingdon Street - is on a safe and quiet street at the southeast corner of the Historic District. It is a 3 minute drive to River Street - a four block walk to Forsythe Park. We bicycle all over the city and never have to worry about parking! The feedback that we've gotten from people staying in our home has been incredibly positive - as they love the fact that it's comfortable and cozy. As we plan to retire there in about 5 years - and we now visit as often as we can - the house is decorated and equipped with everything anyone could need. Our house manager, who is a licensed realtor and is located at the end of the block, makes sure that the house is clean and kept in perfect working order! VRBO has been a tremendous resource for us - as we love to hear from people all over who are interested in renting our home.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. Old house in Old town could have not asked for more. Large black community felt very safe and welcome. Got to know our neighbors with in minutes. Absolutely a lovely old Baptist church across from the house Anno 1934.

A must to eat at Mellow Mushroom great hoagie sandwiches and Pizza the place is mellow . Also the Crab shack on Tybee Island

The house is awesome it is got every thing you need it is old and just very comfy would absolutely try to rent it again . We can not say any thing about this house that is negative. Please when you consider this property that it takes you back in time and realty some folks can not remember those times. but we know and it made our vacation.

PS there are stairs to climb for the main bedroom and Bathroom

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments! Yes, we love our culturally diverse street. Our neighbors, including the pastor at the Baptist Church, are all very nice. We're glad you enjoyed our antiques and knick knacks and the coziness of our home.

Sister vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property decorated top to bottom in beautiful antiques! Close walking distance to much of the historical district. The home was comfortable and provided everything we needed for a great stay! We visited the African American museum located just across the street which was very informative for the area. The church takes up most parking on Sunday but they were very kind. Just make sure you sleep in that day! The owners and property manager were very helpful and kind as well... Thanks for a great trip! We can't wait to visit again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful stay in Savannah. The house is well located on the edge of town so it's easy to walk around Savannah, but also easy to hop in the car and drive over to Tybee Island for some beach time. Having the grocery store nearby was an extra perk, and the dollar store was great for some cheap beach toys. Overall we had a great time exploring both downtown Savannah and the beach and would definitely look to stay here again. Thanks!

Nice cozy spot close to the historical district

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I found the house to be very clean, and easy to live in for the long weekend that we were here. We felt comfortable walking around the neighborhood which is just blocks from the east side of Forsythe Park. We took advantage of the various walking tours that were available in the book that we had ( and also found to be here) and went on a tour called the Footprints of Savanaha which was a story about slavery in Savannah...this is must do if you really want to understand about Savannahs true history. The house is well stocked with travel and tour books on Savannah. Restaurants were amazing- went to Old Pink house, Elizabeth on 37th and 11 ten which were all delicious, and southern.

Superb Savannah Spring Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to escape the late Michigan snow and get a head start on Spring. Your charming house on Huntingdon street and the azalea blooms in Savannah did not disappoint us. The house is full of character (lots of interesting antiques and collectibles) with all the comforts of home. The location is wonderful. We walked everywhere throughout the historic district and down to the riverfront, usually with our rat terrier, Phoebe, in tow. She enjoyed meeting many four- legged friends and their owners on her daily visit to Forsyth park. With Krogers so close by, we were able to prepare some in house meals, but we still managed to get in on the local food scene - Green Truck, Crystal Beer Palace, Clary's for breakfast, Vic's on the River, Screamin Mimis for yummy Manicotti, Crab Shack on Tybee Island, and, of course, Leopold's for ice cream. With all the walking and some bike riding (4 bikes at the house) there was no weight gain on this trip! The Savannah Wildlife Refuge (about 12 miles from Savannah) is a great place to visit to see gators, heron, egrets, in their natural habitat. We had no issues with any house systems, and so no need to contact Natalie the local property manager. We would definitely consider a return visit. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy the sites of Savannah at a leisurely, comfortable pace. The Johnsens - Traverse City MI

We stayed at this home from March 1st to 6th. We enjoyed our visit. Perfect location from which to visit historic Savannah. We walked everywhere. The home was comfortable and indeed full of antiques. We had our puppy with us, and she enjoyed being able to go outside safely.

Only slight reservation, there are seventeen very steep stairs to the second level. Found them a little scarey. However, we are in no longer young, and this would not be a concern for younger visitors. We would certainly recommend this home if you are visiting Savannah.
