Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bath, with master on main just 2 blks from Savannah's Forsyth Park

A convenient retreat, lush with foliage and garden areas, the Garden Cottage Near Forsyth sleeps 6 adults in beds and 2 children under the age of 8 on inflatable mattresses. Built in 2009 with many improvements since, the spacious cottage looks and feels like it was built in Victorian times -- except with the advantages of a newer home. For instance, the spacious and beautifully appointed master bedroom is on the first floor, adjacent to a full bath with double vanities.

Located in Savannah's historic Victorian District, the Garden Cottage is convenient to parks, squares, cafes, restaurants, the library,, fancy hotels & much more. Walk 2 blks to the 22-acre Forsyth Park, with its famous fountain, fragrance garden, arboretum, theatre shell, playground and casual restaurant, operated by the esteemed Mansion on Forsyth hotel.

The cottage sits in a great location in the historic downtown Victorian district, hideaway is a wonderful place for romance, friendship, meditation, creativity, calm and rest, and a great base for fun and adventure.

The front porch, with its classic swing, overlooks a tiny and cute picket-fence enclosed garden with roses, lemon and palm trees. The first floor, with the master bedroom (king-sized bed) and full bath, is convenient with a fully equipped kitchen, new French country dining table with chairs and a bench to seat six adults. Secure WiFi and cable are provided.

The living room is perfect for playing games, watching TV, or hanging out together. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with quaint slanted roofs, queen-sized beds, a full bath, and full sized washer/dryer. Out back is a private courtyard and gazebo, outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ grill. Just outside the courtyard are two private off-street parking spaces.

Savannah has one of the most unique and admired urban designs in the world and is a runner’s and walker’s dream as the historic district amounts to just about 2.5 square miles. To top it off, the weather is amenable all year round!

The owner, Holly, purchased the home in 2017 and gave it the Garden Cottage name. She says, "I am in love with Savannah. The history, the beauty, the architecture, the people, and the food! Especially the food." You will find so many culinary gems here from Italian, to seafood, to down-home country-cooking.

But let's get back to Holly's story…

Holly's love affair with Savannah started when she moved here in 1987 at the age of 19. A few years later she moved to Atlanta due to life’s circumstances, but kept Savannah in her heart. Fast forward to 2010 when she came down here on several business trips and brought her fiancé with her. At that point he fell in love with Savannah as well, and they decided to get married here. Ever since they have been determined to have their own place here to enjoy, as well as share with others. And now their dream has come true with the Garden Cottage on Park Avenue! They hope you enjoy our home as much as they do!

After perusing many neighborhoods and looking at a

multitude of houses, they chose this house for several reasons. It’s charming, it’s big enough to accommodate their whole family, and it’s close to all that Savannah has to offer. You can take a nice stroll to Forsyth Park, walk to one of their favorite restaurants, or just meander through the many historical squares.

Holly and her husband have thoughtfully chosen pictures and décor that give their Garden Cottage a feel of the city, and they have tried to make it as comfortable and inviting as possible. While built in 2009, it has a definite Victorian “feel” and a cottage look. The neighborhood is Victorian -- and the Garden Cottage fits right in. They love sitting on the porch swing in the front; or relaxing under the covered patio in the back at night, with the beautiful hanging lights.

The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a fully-equipped kitchen.So, come and check it out. Bring your significant other for a romantic weekend getaway, gather the girls for a “girl’s trip”, or bring the whole family and stay the week! Don't worry about parking. We have off-street spaces in back! Or you can always park on our un-metered street.

Warm and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cottage, the weather was very cold during our visit but every time we walked through the front door and turned on the little fireplace we were so cozy and comfy! It was perfect, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sue for the wonderful review. Yes, its true, we have had some chilly weather this year, but it usually is just for a few days. There are still many things to do and explore in Savannah. The Garden Cottage has a new owner as of July. She has gone above & beyond to make the cottage comfortable for our guests. The Garden Cottage has a master bedroom with a king bed and full bath on the ground level. This has worked very well for anyone with difficulty going up stairs. The cottage has two more bedrooms (queen) upstairs with another full bath and a separate laundry room. The living room, dining room, breakfast bar & kitchen are on the ground level- an open concept which is wonderful for all to gather. The most outstanding attributes of the Cottage is the fabulous outdoor space, a covered gazebo with lighting, gas BBQ grill and wonderful garden- all encased with a privacy fence. Just behind the fence are two off-street parking spaces for your use. We welcome Sue and her group back to visit Savannah and the Garden Cottage anytime! thank you, Kelly

Best rental house we have experience to date!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic, and we would absolutely stay here again. Best stocked kitchen I have seen yet, only teeny tiny complaint is that there was no laundry detergent, but only fabric softener. Great spot for group trips and close to everything! Immaculately clean when we arrived and beautiful, space efficient decor and furniture. Thanks for a great stay!

House had everything we needed!

  • 4 of 5

Celebrated Thanksgiving holiday in Savannah. House was well stocked with all the extras that may have been needed, such as spices, coffee, paper towels. Location was convenient to Forsyth Park and and other historical squares as well as Kroger. You could walk to riverfront or was a cheap Uber ride. Only suggestion would be that lockbox was frustrating to find. Would be helpful in check-in instructions to know exactly where it was located on porch.

Trip for daughter bachelorette

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was amazing. Everything was great. Furnishings and bedding wonderful.and up to date. Only complaint, the alley parking Barely fit a prius and a passat. Trash can s from other properties in the way. The area cottage is located in is a little sketchy. There is a housing building next door that had illegal dealings going on. Other than that and the area.we loved it. Very close to everything. Less than 10 min to anywhere

Walk to the Juliette Gordon Low Home, a shrine for Girl Scouts from all over the world. Every Square is historic. Further north is Broughton Street, which offers high end and funky shopping and dining, and City Market where you can catch the Horse & Carriage tours, sit outside and listen to live music or just take a break with a beer and pizza at Vinnie Van GoGo's. Another few minutes and you are at the Savannah River and Factors Walk with all its glorious history and reverie. Not to mention great food, drink and shopping. Watching the container ships navigate the Savannah River is a sight to behold.
