Elegant and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Italianate Mansion! The house was beautiful and comfortable.

The grounds were lovely and private. Diana was available but not intrusive at all.

The property is located across from Forsyth Park and just

outside the Historic district. We walked everywhere, however, if you

have limited physical capability be aware it is a significant walk to the River Front.

The kitchen is small but makes the most use of the space. As others have

mentioned the fridge is a dorm size but we were able to get quite a lot into it. There is

a grocery store within walking distance, maybe 5 or 6 blocks away.

It was very hot and humid when we visited but the house is air conditioned and we were

comfortable. The beds were comfortable. There is a small washer and dryer and each bedroom has it's

own private bath, plus a 1/2 bath downstairs. Speaking of stairs. The staircase is steep so you might

want to consider that when packing your suitcase!

I would definitely stay there again. Thank you Diana for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Beautiful home and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our stay at the Italianate Mansion on Forsyth Park. The location was perfect for all the activities we participated in during our stay in Savannah. We didn't have to drive as we were close to everything and were able to find what we needed close by, and a Trolley stop was just down from our location so we were able to enjoy that convenience as well. Wonderful stay - only downside was the noise from the construction two doors down - but that should be completed by the new year hopefully.

Extraordinary beauty and charm

  • 5 of 5

Historic Italianate Mansion on Forsyth Park is beautiful inside and out. Location is great for walking at the Forsyth Park and around the area. Parking is easy on the street in front of the house. Since we had our own car available visiting Bonaventure Cemetery and Tybee Island were short drives.

The inside is absolutely gorgeous; tastefully decorated and comfortable.

If you are not acclimated to city life, the noise may be an adjustment. Ambulances go by this location many times; Friday night street sweeping is also very loud.

Had to take the outside steps slowly due to knee conditions but it was worth it once inside. There are many stairs leading to the second level but with the hand rail these were not an issue for me.

We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Diana for sharing this beautiful home.

Historic Charm!

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in an ideal spot near the park and walking distance to the downtown area. The home it's self is rich in antiques, large oversized rooms and beautifully decorated. We had a great time on our anniversary trip in Savanah.

Wonderful home in a beatiful historic setting

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Savannah. So much history to keep me busy and plenty of shopping for my wife and daughter, really a fabulous city full of beauty and charm. The Italian mansion was a wonderful place to stay,we really enjoyed the since of history, plus all the modern amenities. Plenty of hot water Wi-Fi worked great nice kitchen plenty big enough for us. The front bedroom was a little warm with some street noise.My daughter loved the bathroom in the back bedroom.
