Number of Guests: Accommodates up to 2 Guests

The Johnson Square Carriage House is a free standing cottage behind the main house with its own private entrance. It is located on the 2nd floor over the garage. Like all original carriage houses in Savannah, the carriage house is where the driver lived above the horses and carriages he cared for. The Carriage House comes with a highly coveted covered parking space. As part of The Jones Street Suites, the 1 bedroom and 1 bath Carriage House accommodates up to 2 guests.

The carriage house is a private retreat that has been professionally decorated in a bright and cheery cottage theme. Your private retreat has a large great room with vaulted ceilings and many windows that flood the house with light.

This location is the perfect base for your Savannah exploration and enjoyment. Enjoy your morning coffee from your deck overlooking the tranquil courtyard. This Special Carriage house on 'America’s Prettiest Street' is an enviable urban sanctuary.

Located in an exclusive neighborhood in the heart of Savannah's Historic Landmark District. This Historic freestanding house is walking distance to cultural attractions, countless restaurants, unique shopping and River Street. This brick paved street is a Savannah premier address.

Can't beat the location, but...

  • 4 of 5

On the plus side, the property was exactly as described, the location is terrific and there is so much to do in Savannah that is truly within walking distance. The instructions were clear from the owner. On the con side, beware if you are a sleeper that is affected by light at night. Because of the the street lighting in the back alley, the whole carriage house is flooded with light (despite tightly lowered blinds) and it is disorienting. Also, as this is a professionally maintained property, I was a little chagrined that we were required to wash all the dishes and put them away and empty the carriage house of trash despite a fairly steep cleaning fee for a three night stay.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay for a long weekend, it's such a cute street and is right in between the park and the downtown area! Having a parking spot makes life a lot easier and the place itself is adorable!

  • 4 of 5

Very cute decorations, had all the essentials to cook if you wanted to. Absolutely loved the bed and pillows (would like to know brand), located far enough but close enough to walk to parks and venues

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the carriage house. The location is very central in the Savannah Historic District and we found that we could walk anywhere we wanted to go in old Savannah and to downtown. There are great restaurants as close as next door for lunch and a short block and a half for a wonderful pub experience of food and drink. The accommodations were perfect for two and included all appliances and utensils. Having a private parking space is a major plus. The only downside for us was the noise of the air conditioning units and industrial fans from Mrs. Wilkes next door when on the deck or the patio. We would definitely stay there again if we travel to Savannah.

lovely evenings in the courtyard

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Johnson Square Carriage House. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already booked the same week next year. The location is perfect for walking everywhere. We got a rental car because it has garage parking but next year we will not get a car because we never used it. The cottage is very light and bright with lots of windows which always puts me in a good mood! It was clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen for a week stay. Our favorite and what became our daily ritual after a long day of walking and sitseeing was to come back and sit outside on our little deck and enjoy the courtyard with a glass of wine...or two!

Very nice but could easily be better

  • 4 of 5

The property is very charming as described by other reviewers. The amenities were plentiful and the apartment was nicely appointed. However, I will make two suggestions, one for renters and the second for the rental owner.

The first suggestion is for renters and that is, obtain a copy of the lease agreement before you rent. There are some very strict policies which you should be aware of prior to renting, namely a $50/hour fee for early check in or late check out. Another strict policy is that the renter must vacate the outside common areas by 9PM. There is a $100 charge if you move any furniture. The list goes on but these examples are the most strict and impacting.

The second suggestion is for the owner of the apartment. Please put blackout curtains in the bedroom. The lights outside are hi intensity halogen lights and they are flooding the bedroom at night to the point that a sleep mask is required to achieve any semblance of darkness required for good sleep.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us some feed back. After looking into the brightness of the city's night lighting in the lane, I must agree with you! We need to get room darkening drapes in the bedroom. We are doing a lot of renovations, painting, etc. at the Jones Street Suites in January when rentals are slower and installing new bedroom drapes for the carriage house is on the top of the list! Our Guest Rental Agreement covers everything that could go wrong but rarely ever does! But vacating all outside spaces by 9pm is a Savannah city ordinance that we must enforce. Early check in and late check out guidelines are to make sure our housekeeping staff has plenty of time to prepare the property for the next guests. We always try to accommodate all guest requests at no charge if we have the flexibility and they give us a call. More times than not we do.
