Beach Institute Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two Bedrooms, One Bath W/ Private Courtyard. Sleeps Four.

Mariner's Cottage is your cozy and welcoming oasis within Savannah's moss-draped Landmark Historic District.

Newly restored and thoughtfully furnished with local antiques and art, you will feel like you stepped into a magazine. Restaurants, pubs and groceries are within walking distance. In Troup Square, just a block and half away, enjoy a picnic or glass of wine. Park your car in your dedicated off-street space and spend the rest of your time on foot exploring the lanes, mansions, and hidden courtyards of beautiful Savannah.

Step inside Mariner’s Cottage and enjoy the open plan that flows from the welcoming living room to the dining area with a rustic farm table that seats six. The fully-equipped kitchen is stocked with coffees, teas, spices and cooking oil. A door from the kitchen leads to your private covered-and-screened porch as well as the serene courtyard, complete with cafe table and landscape lighting. Rain or shine, enjoy your morning coffee or your evening glass of sweet tea or white wine outside.

The main bedroom is complete with a queen bed, two nightstands, a large closet and the beautifully appointed bathroom with a tub/shower combination and a stacked clothes washer and dryer. Adjacent to the living room is a bonus room featuring two built-in twin beds, perfect for kids or two adults. This room is also a great 'get-away' spot for reading or napping during the day.

Fluffy towels and high-quality bed linens are provided, as well as bath soaps, lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. With a hair dryer, iron, and ironing board you have everything you need. The newly-installed A/C system will keep you comfortable no matter what is happening outside.

We hope you will love our delightful Mariner’s Cottage as much as we do. Come experience Savannah like a local.

Beautiful and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Mariner's Cottage. The cottage is beautiful and very comfortable. Very convenient to downtown Savannah. The only issue was the TV. No cable just Netflix and you couldn't really watch anything because it would reload continuously. Very frustrating. Anne McLaughlin.

Adorable cottage, perfect for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our mother/daughter vacation. It was a great location and easy to get to all the sites. It was clean, spacious and had everything we could need for our stay. The owner was so helpful with any questions we had along the way. I can't wait to come back with my husband.

Savannah, GA is beautiful, historic and artistic.

Founded in 1733, Savannah was the new world's first planned community. Wander through twenty-two squares landscaped in azaleas and live oaks dripping in Spanish moss.

Every major event in US history touched the city. Visit a Revolutionary War Battlefield and the house Gen. Sherman occupied during the Civil War.

Used as the location of many major motion pictures (Forrest Gump, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Something to Talk About, etc.), it is now the location of the Savannah Film Festival every fall. And in the spring is the Savannah Music Festival.

Fifteen miles from the Atlantic Ocean at Tybee Island, GA, and two and a half hours from Charleston, SC, Savannah is perfectly located to enjoy all manner of recreation. Savannah is a perfect vacation spot for every interest in your family.

Other Activities: History, ghost, & movie tours
