The bed is at normal height and on legs when fully inflated. You will need to deflate the bed during the day to move freely in the room.

Experience a fully stocked kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The bed is queen size and there is an electric fireplace for a romantic ambiance with or without running the heater. Watch a flatscreen HDTV, read, or play games.

The courtyard is shared with us and our dog (Gus). We live in the main house. The courtyard is complete with fountain and perfect for a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. You might catch us using our Big Green Egg for our outdoor cooking and would be happy to share our hot coals with you. As native Californians we use wine for cooking, drinking and making new friends. You will have private access to the carriage house from the lane. There is plenty of free parking on the street. Just be mindful of street sweeping hours.

Jones E. Carriage House is walking distance to everything in historic downtown Savannah. Have coffee in the courtyard then walk 2 blocks to the famous Clary's Cafe on E. Jones St. Stroll a few more beautiful blocks for shopping or dining at the landmark restaurant of Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room. Enjoy all the festivities Forsyth Park has to offer just a few blocks away. From the carriage house walk up Habersham St. through several lovely squares to River Street. Just as easily walk to City Market or to any of the many wonderful restaurants along the way. And of course the local dog park is just 1 block away! If you do run out of energy at the end of a long day, you simply need to hail one of the numerous Pedi-Cabs to bring you back home.

Jones E. Carriage House is perfect for anyone who is looking for a getaway and doesn't want to leave their dog at home. Stay for a long weekend or an entire week. You will love it. For a time my Husband and I worked as secret shoppers for the Ritz Carlton Hotel chain. Our job was to use all of the hotel services as undercover guests and report back to the management to help them maintain their 5 star rating. We learned a lot about how to treat guests with the care and attention they deserve. Give us a call and let us design the perfect 5 star experience for you. SVR-00518

About June Alston

Greg and I recently moved to downtown Savannah, and we love it. We bought this unique brick 1866 townhouse with a lovely courtyard and carriage house. We've already renovated the carriage house and are currently working on the main house. We are anxious to share our new home with family, friends, and new aquaintances.

We have traveled the world and so have met many wonderful people along the way. We hope to keep making new friends and creating new stories to share. Greg and I are both pharmacists. He continues to work as the Associate Dean of the Savannah campus of South University School of pharmacy. When we moved to Savannah I retired! I am now going to manage our carriage house vacation rental. I also quilt, quite a bit. You will see some of my art displayed in the carriage house.

Why June Alston chose Beach Institute

When looking to buy a home for our move to Savannah, we thoroughly searched every area surrounding downtown. But we just kept returning to downtown for the vibrant energy that exists in the historic city. Our historic 1866 brick townhouse met all of our needs and we know you will love it also. You can walk to everywhere from here but the nights are quiet and peaceful and away from the noise of the night spots.

People who have never been to Savannah can be fooled by looking at a map. The neighborhoods here change block by block. A 200 foot difference can make a huge difference in your experience. this property is Safe , Quiet and close in to all the must see sights.

What makes this guest house unique

Jones E. Carriage House is in the absolutely best location of historic downtown Savannah. Walk everywhere. You can park on our driveway or on the street with no meters, just be mindful of the street sweeping hours. Once you arrive never drive again. Come relax and have a great time in Savannah.

Wonderful place to stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the unit. Plenty of room, clean, well decorated and within walking distance of Historic district. Did not need to use car while we were there. The apartment was was beautiful and we had a great time.. June was an excellent host and made sure all of our needs were met, including a basket of snacks and a fine bottle of wine, which was greatly appreciated. We would recommend this place to friends and family. On our next visit to Savannah we will at this apartment again and would stay again.

6 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

There are many places listed for rent in Savannah's Historic District, but we found no place that was as nice as the Carriage House owned by June Alston. The location, hospitality, decor, and attention to detail was exceptional. We came in December and even though the weather was a bit cool - the carriage house was cozy and comfortable - stockings hung by the fireplace, a Christmas tree, and beautiful handmade (by June) Christmas quilts. A perfect weekend that we would give 6 Stars if we could.

Amazing time at a beautiful place with great hosts and the perfect details!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts left us a fun gift basket and answered any and all questions we had. The place was immaculate and sweetly decorated- we had a great time. We also walked every where from their location. We can’t wait to come back!!

Thanks again for everything!!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is a beautiful, cozy and relaxing home away from home. June and Greg thought of every possible detail to make the space more comfortable and accommodating than any other place we have stayed in the past. We cannot wait for our next stay at the Carriage House and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Savannah.

Cozy Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 nights at June and Greg’s carriage house on Jones Lane. We loved the carriage house! It was beautifully decorated, generously and thoughtfully stocked with quite literally anything you could need for a stay! The bed and pillows were comfy and equipped with nice linens. Described as a studio but spacious with full kitchen, eating area, small sitting area, electric fire place, large closet and bath. Spotlessly clean. Beautiful garden shared with the main home and friendly pooch named Gus as a welcome committee🙂 June and Greg met us upon arrival and showed us the space and were very kind. They have a quite the piece of wonderful in the Historic District! We’ve stayed in about a dozen properties in Savannah and can honestly say it was our favorite when it’s just the two of us. We will happily return!

A perfect space! Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The owner has created an absolutely perfect little vacation retreat! Warm and inviting, and if it weren’t for the beauty of Savannah you would just want to stay in the studio all day and night! June and Greg are very friendly and accommodating and their dog Gus is adorable! Thank you so much. I would absolutely recommend this space. It really is perfect!
