The Front Loft at Sanctuary Place was completed in 2010. Like it's sister Loft next door, the Front Loft is full of original details combined with modern design features. Throughout the space the commitment to preserve the past is evident. Great care has been taken to accentuate the original craftsmanship while attending to the needs of modern life. The stained glass creates a welcoming allure of light in different combinations throughout the day making the Font Loft ideal for entertaining or just relaxing with a book.There are two bedrooms and two baths - both beds are queen. The first floor bathroom has a walk in tile shower, the top floor bath has a large cast-iron tub. The Loft is fully equipped for cooking and stocked with the comforts of home. Great location right off Forsyth Park.

This property is two blocks southwest of historic Forsyth Park in a quiet residential neighborhood, and was precisely as advertised. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances (fridge, gas stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer), cookware, dishes, and flatware. The Kroger's grocery is a 2 minute drive. I met friends for drinks at the Mansion Hotel, a ten minute walk. Free onstreet parking. Incredibly convenient to the Savannah College of Art and Design, whose seventy-or-so renovated building classrooms are all across town. The converted church property retains its incredible character, including the two-story bell tower upper bathroom. The owners left tons of helpful guides and pamphlets to review if you are interested in Savannah's history before just setting out aimlessly. Immaculately clean, plenty of towels, comfortable beds. One observation: if you like complete darkness in the morning, this is not the property for you. The sunlight coming through the stained glass windows, from the crack of dawn to sunset, is magnificent.
Photos really don't do this place justice, just beautiful!
Also, Kevin and John are both more than helpful.
We will be back!
Sanctuary Place is unique, historic and thought provoking. The windows are so beautiful and the memorial windows kept making us wonder about the families who were named. The architectural design, making a church become a living space, was tastefully thought out and very functional. The location was perfect for us because we had a car and had no problem parking. But a heads up for those of you who park on the street. We did get a parking ticket that had something to do with a chalk mark. We did not know they marked the tires and had follow the printed signs.
Our stay in Savanah was one of the best experiences we have had. The food and service were outstanding, the tours were spot on, the green spaces and parks made walking so easy. And, of course, we had a wonderful home in which to stay. Thank you.
Had a great time staying in the renovated church!! It's a gem in the neighborhood. There's a restaurant near Forsith Park called "Local" it's a must try.
Dramatic former church accommodation, spotlessly clean and comfortable, unobtrusive yet responsive hosts--what's not to love about Sanctuary in Savannah?!! Only a short walk from Forsyth Park on a leafy street, this unique place combines character and taste in a beautifully decorated and remodeled Baptist church (or a large portion thereof) with soaring ceilings and sleeping space for four in two comfortable beds--one downstairs, one upstairs. The two bathrooms (one with shower, one with deep bath) are bathed in stained glass light, as are all other spaces. The modern kitchen lacks nothing and is so clean the fridge looks brand new inside. The wall separating the neighbors is a little thin but that's the only criticism I can think of as I reflect on our terrific long weekend in Savannah -- Sanctuary indeed!
The loft is a very old converted church, nicely remodeled & very comfortable. It was clean & very easy to get to. Street parking was no problem, never farther than across the street. I'd give it 5 stars if it was a little closer to historic downtown Savannah.
This location, just off the southend of Forsyth Park has a lot of advantages. The first being the park itself: 10 acres of green-space lined with 200 year old, moss covered trees. 2 large playgrounds, tennis and basket ball courts and a large amphitheater with a cafe. The park serves as a center piece for downtown life and acts as a gateway to the historic squares that make up downtown. The farmers market is every Saturday and the park host many events throughout the year. Several local favorites on this end of the park too including the Sentient Bean Cafe and Brighter Day Grocery - 2 indispensable places for many downtown residents. A free shuttle to downtown proper is just a couple of blocks over on Bull St, the trolley stop is also super close.
