While he was the organist and music director of Savannah’s Unitarian Church, which faces onto Troup Square, the Reverend John Pierpont Jr. wrote the beloved Christmas song Jingle Bells, copyrighted in 1857. In 1985, the City of Savannah placed a plaque in Troup Square to commemorate the song and its Savannah roots.

Fully renovated in 2011, it has off-street parking for one small car and ample free street parking—no meters to feed with quarters or $7.00 daily parking permits required.

About Owner

We are a nearing-retirement age couple from the New York City area with backgrounds in fine arts and restoration, an appreciation for eccentricity, and a limited amount of patience for shoveling snow - so Savannah is perfect for us.

Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Owner chose Savannah

When our son was clever enough to pass up the blustery New York area where he was born and enrolled in the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in animation in 2004 we began thinking about escaping ourselves - at least for visits. He graduated in 2008 and has moved on to other challenges but we continue to be fascinated by Savannah, one of the most magical cities in the US.

What makes this cottage unique

For short and longer term visits we have stayed in quite a few Savannah hotels and a dozen or so furnished vacation rentals, so we have a good idea of what we want to find to make us comfortable, which has guided us in renovating and furnishing this cottage.

Jingle Bell Cottage a great find.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I so enjoyed our stay at the Jingle Bell Cottage. The rooms were crisp and clean and a delight to come home to after a hot summer day exploring the beautiful city of Savannah. It is a short walk to St. John the Baptist Church which is an easy "hop on" to most of the trolley tours. Our only problem was that we could not park the Jeep in the cottage's parking space but it was a short $5 Uber to most parts of the city. Despite this, we would recommend this historic home to anyone and would like to come back again for a longer visit.

Owner's Response: We have a dedicated off-street parking space for one "small" car for the exclusive use of our cottage guests. It's difficult to define "small" these days. We have parked our own Toyota Highlander (a mid-sive SUV) in the space. For guests with very large cars or those who choose not to use the parking space there is ample on-street parking available in our neighborhood with no meters or parking permits required.

An Extraordinary Value

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Jingle Bells Cottage in Savannah over the Memorial Day weekend. The Cottage is an extraordinary value in a wonderful location within easy walking distance of the Historic District and the beautiful squares. The Cottage is decorated tastefully and is VERY clean and neat. It seems to be in safe location. The bed is very comfortable. The owner is quite sensitive to assuring that the accommodations are high quality and everything you might expect. I plan to stay there again and highly recommend it to others.

My go-to place to stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed at the Jingle Bells Cottage for the third time and once again had a great experience. The cottage has everything you could need, is decorated beautifully, and is in walking distance to everything in downtown Savannah (or a $5 Uber to City Market if you don't feel like walking). I slept on the sofa bed this time (it has an air mattress topper) and it was extremely comfortable.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Savannah, and we would highly recommend the Jingle Bells Square Cottage to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet, lovely home within easy walking distance of everything in the historic district. The owners were easy to work with, guiding us through our first HomeAway experience. The property manger checked in with us by phone. The cottage was beautiful, immaculate and inviting. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, loved having the washer and dryer, and enjoyed the cozy porch for morning coffee. Our party consisted of two adults, which was perfect for this one-bedroom cottage. I will be back.

Great Place!!

We visited Savannah and was fortunate to stay at the Jingle Bell Cottage. The cottage was very warm and welcoming. It was clean, comfortable, well stocked, and just beautiful. The owners and property manager were very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our stay in this cozy cottage and would highly recommend this home. We look forward to our next visit in this charming cottage.
