Jones E. Carriage House has it all; great location, dog friendly, luxury appointments, and off street parking with private entrance. The private entrance is from the lane behind our property. It's an easy walk to everywhere from here. Rents fast, so don't hesitate or your date will be gone. Experience the wonder of Savannah as it was meant to be explored on foot. This spacious, one room living area has everything you and your dog need to enjoy downtown Savannah. For those without Dogs we are people friendly as well. Jones E. carriage house has just been renovated and is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated.

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. Cook in, or take a short walk to one of the wonderful restaurants within a ten minute leisurely walk. You name it, this kitchen has it. Keurig coffee pot, toaster, cookware, bakeware and basic supplies such as oils and spices. High quality linens are included along with a hair dryer, shampoo, soaps, lotions, iron and ironing board.

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.

Another great experience at The Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at The Carriage House and once again we were totally satisfied. The unit is impeccably clean and very inviting. June provides home-like amenities that go a long way toward enhancing the experience - like a snack basket, complete with a bottle of wine, as well as some coffee choices (a nice Keurig) and a few soft drinks in the fridge. The booking and arrival process were very simple and June maintains contact ahead of arrival so there are really no questions about how the process will work. Again, it's a beautiful and comfortable place to stay while in Savannah and we will certainly look to stay here again in the future. Our only problem this time was that our stay could not be longer!

The perfect nook with cozy, romantic Savannah charm!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the carriage house for a 5-day get-away with my partner. We work hard and travel a lot with our jobs, so for our personal trips, we want something as different from a hotel room as we can get. The Jones Carriage House was the perfect spot. June, the owner, has thoughtfully decorated and outfitted the space in such a way that we honestly did not want to leave. June, her husband - Greg, and their dog, Gus, are wonderful people, and they made us feel very welcome. June made many fantastic recommendations for restaurants and tours. The courtyard is adorable and relaxing, and the location is convenient to walking nearly everywhere in Savannah. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable I have ever slept on. I am recommending this property to all of my friends and family who are planning to visit Savannah sometime in the next year. And we will definitely stay here again!

We treat all of our guests with the respect they deserve and go out of our way to make everyone feel welcome. So thank you for the recommendation to your friends as there is no greater honor you could bestow. Hope to see you again soon, June

Savannah in Summer!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at the carriage house. June is an amazing host and all of the little details made it that much better. From a customized map circling must see spots and restaurants, to letting us in early to drop our bags off so we could start exploring Savannah. All of the amenities were above and beyond, comfy bed, great linens, amazing kitchen and coffee. We will return again. Savannah is a beautiful walking city and this is the perfect place to relax after many miles on your feet and close to everything!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Lisa. Yes we love dogs and we have all shapes and sizes stay with us. And they bring some pretty nice humans with them too. The Carriage house is so roomy and in such a nice quiet location that you can enjoy an active day and a restful night. Staying too close to the action can be too noisy to sleep sometimes. So I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to seeing you again soon. Don't forget that we have a 2 bedroom townhouse just about 100 yards away if you want to bring friends next time (912817) see you soon, June

Our guests love the fact that it is an easy walk to all the popular historic sites in Savannah and close to the trolley stops for those that don't want to walk so much. Hope to see you again soon, June

5- Star Rental

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this vacation rental. This was the first time that my husband and I had ever been to Savannah. June was very helpful and all of her recommendations were spot on. The rental was in the perfect location and was within walking distance to everything that we wanted to see and do. The rental was very clean and was stocked with everything that we needed and more. The welcome basket and the fresh baked cookies were so thoughtful! We also enjoyed having coffee with Gus in the mornings! We would definitely stay here again!
