Located in the acclaimed Victorian District, the Montgomery House is centrally located -- just a short walk to Savannah's fabulous Forsyth Park, the Park Avenue cafe scene, with its natural food market Brighter Day, and the popular Sentient Bean coffee house, an Internet cafe and music/poetry/film venue. Of course, you can just walk from Montgomery House just across the street to Rumrunner's Cafe for excellent coffees, teas, homemade pastries, as well as a lunch menu. Eat there or bring your goodies home and eat out on the back deck, or at one of two dining tables, or the breakfast bar. Montgomery House gives you lots of options.
Officially a 1 bedroom, 1 bath townhome, this spacious property comfortably sleeps 2 couples or a family of 6. The property has 2 huge parlors, each with a couch that pulls out into a queen-sized bed. The high ceilings and wide parlours make for ample room and a feeling of open space. The bathroom is accessible from the Master Suite, as well as from the parlor.
Guests will love the open double parlors, which unfold into the dining room and then on into the kitchen, right out to the back deck. Stand in the front parlor and you can see all the way down to the back door. Perfect for keeping an eye on children, while everyone can enjoy his/her own space.
The dining room table is a high-quality rustic table with 2 sturdy benches; it seats 6-8. The kitchen has its own quaint breakfast table, with 4 covered high-back chairs; and the breakfast bar has 4 stools -- perfect for a quick snack or a sit-down review of the day's itinerary.
Recently renovated, Montgomery House retains much original historic detail accented with a charming mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings. Enter from the foyer to a semi-formal entry hall and through the arched entrance into a striking front parlour with a bay window seating area, next to the working gas fireplace. The gorgeous hard-wood floors are accented by plush area rugs for comfort and cheerful pops of color that complement the home's coastal palette. The couch in this room pulls out into a queen-sized bed with extra padding.
The couch in the second parlor does the same. This room can be bright with sunlight or adjust the blinds to mute the light for naps or watching the flatscreen TV. You will notice that here, and throughout the house, there are lots of open surfaces surrounding areas of clear space: great for children and playtime, older kids for a sense of "my space" and adults for a calm and serene settings.
The Master Suite offers complete privacy. Simple elegance allows you to stretch out on the queen-sized bed and relax. The large closet and dresser here give you plenty of storage space , and the direct access to the bathroom makes life easy.
The kitchen is fully stocked and features a gas stove and oven, microwave, espresso machine, toaster, refrigerator and dishwasher. Paper towels and kitchen towels are provided -- all you need to bring is food and drink.
The back deck and paved outdoor area is surrounded by a privacy fence. Sit at the cafe table and chairs for morning coffee or afternoon social beverage. There is a small garden (with live aloe plants) and paved walk. On the side of the house, a storage shed contains a cooler, boogie board, umbrella and toys -- all for you to take to the beach!
Very nice and charming place. It's actually bigger and better than the pictures. Very convenient to historic Savannah. Whole Foods store only 7 minutes away. Leopald's ice cream only a few minutes away as well as Riverwalk. Montgomery house was super clean and everything was provided for us. Only drawback was neighbors above was very noisey and we never heard from the owner.
We had a wonderful stay at Montgomery House. The home was beautifully decorated and immaculate. It was very cozy and we wanted for nothing. We enjoyed the books, magazines and board games as well. My husband, kids and I kept saying we felt like we were staying at home from HGTV. Forsyth Park was in walking distance and everything else was just a short car ride away. We would definitely recommend!
When we arrived, we were a little skeptical because of the neighborhood and not knowing Savannah, we were a little hesitant. However, upon entry of the home, it was absolutely beautiful. Such a quaint, lovely, well decorated, and comfy home. It is such a charming place. There were three of us so one of us used the middle room couch bed, which, was actually super comfy. The owner has done a great job renovating this home and its lovely. Its also very close to everything in Savannah. Loved it. My only suggestion to the owner would be to be cautious when using Tide detergent. A lot of people are allergic to it and a lot of people are unaware that a lot of people have allergies to it. I had a small allergic reaction when in the home due to contact with it, but always anticipate it because a lot of people use tide. Just a suggestion there. Otherwise, amazing home!
We preferred not to write a negative review but were unable to reach a satisfactory resolution of a double booking that led to our not staying at the property. In November 2015 our reservation for this apartment was confirmed for 12/26/15-1/1/16 after we paid the full rent, taxes, insurance, pet, and cleaning fees.
When we arrived late the evening of December 26 and started to unlock the door, we found that the apartment was occupied by the owner, who was surprised to see us. She asked to see our paperwork, and stated that a mistake had been made, that she had asked her property manager to keep the dates open for her use. The owner found a hotel room that accepted dogs, led us to the hotel, and let the hotel staff know that she was paying. The staff stated that we were getting the last “pet friendly” room in the city, and exhausted as we were after a 12 hour drive, we agreed to stay, given no other options. The owner did not offer to vacate the apartment for our use in spite of the fact that we had paid in advance, as noted above. We spent the week in a hotel room, not an apartment as per our contract, with no cooking facilities, not even a coffee pot or microwave, thus incurring unplanned expenses for meals in restaurants. Movement in the room was tight, as we had to live out of our suitcases and boxes, with our dog’s bed situated between the two queen beds. We feel that it is unfair to be expected to absorb the cost of the pet and cleaning fees, taxes and insurance when we did not even stay where we planned due to a major communication error on the part of the owner and her manager! The manager communicated to us that the owner refused our request for reimbursement of those fees stating she had paid more for our stay at the hotel than she had received from us in rent. If we had wanted to stay at a hotel we never would have contracted with her for the apartment. So this is our evaluation not of the property but of the property’s management.
My family and I (4 adults/2kids/1dog) stayed here last weekend (2 weeks before St. Patty's). I was blown away by the interior of the house - honestly. BEAUTIFULLY furnished and decorated. 3 flat screen TVs - one for each section of the house. The dining area is big enough to seat 8, the kitchen is open and well designed. The house has 1 bedroom, but the designers were clever in making it easy to convert two living rooms into (that are normally joined) into two distinct and private bedroom areas with very comfortable pull-out couches. Thus, at night we basically had 3 distinct bedrooms (spacious). High ceilings and beautiful old fireplaces brought a lot of charm to this place.
The house is very close to downtown and we would drive in, park, and then take a tour bus around the town. Although the house is 1 mile away from the historic downtown area, you can tell that the area the house in is becoming more and more an extension of downtown. There is a cute little bakery and a refurbished retro gas station across the street. We quickly made friendly with the cafe owner and had delicious baked goods that we brought back to the house in the morning.
The traffic on the road outside can be seem a little loud at times late at night, but nothing that we couldn't fall asleep to.
The property manager - Kelly - was also fantastic.
Everything about this rental was perfect! The condo is very spacious and updated, but still filled with the historic charm of Savannah. Heather has thought of everything. You have all the amenities of a hotel and your own home..she even had essentials for kids! The kitchen is well equipped for eating in. The location is great if you want to explore Savannah on foot. She left great recommendations for things to do/places to eat...they were all spot on. Heather was quick to respond and great to work with. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Savannah and will definitely be staying here again! Thanks Heather!
The Montgomery House is located in Savannah's historic Victorian District. Here block after block of charming Victorian home line streets shaded by live oak trees, gracefully strewn with Spanish moss. Fancy gingerbread and other architectural ornamentation give these homes a lavish look and feel. Look for rich color combinations where homeowners have restored the wooden structures to their former glory. Between the huge hanging ferns and rocking chairs and porch swings, you can easily imagine life in the mid-to-late 1800s, when the Victorian District was a new "suburb" of the older neighborhoods to the north.
Life in the Victorian District centers on Forsyth Park, just a 5 minute walk from Montgomery House. The 22-acre park attracts locals and visitors alike who picnic and relax on the sprawling green spaces, stroll arboretum-like areas of magnolias, live oaks, and ornamental trees, or set on benches surrounding the fabulous fountain to watch the fascinating display of cascading water -- or just to people watch.
