The Victorian at Sanctuary Place was built in 1888 for Dr. E.W. Glidden, a prominent Savannah physician who sat on the Georgia Board of Health. It eventually became the parsonage for the adjacent church and was primarily student housing for the ten years prior to being restored in 2010. The kitchen, and baths were replaced and upgraded for modern needs - crown molding and plantation shutters were added to fit the period. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, plus a queen- size convertible sofa in the living room. Both beds are queen and the trunk room has been converted to a small bedroom with a twin bed. The Victorian has been thoughtfully appointed and is well stocked with essentials. A side door leads to a lovely courtyard with a fountain and outdoor seating. This historic location is convenient for exploring Savannah by foot or car and a very short walk to Forsythe Park and several local favorites.

Great home in fabulous location
Well maintained Victorian home on quiet street with a 5 minute walk to Forsyth Park where you can get the free shuttle to downtown Savannah. This home had off street parking which is rare for the area, we parked up when we arrived and never used our car due to the proximity to the free shuttle. BBQ place across the street was excellent as were the restaurants and shops next to Forsyth park.
Home was spacious, well appointed and the kitchen was nicely equipped.
Kevin checked in with us to make sure everything was OK.
I would highly recommend this home for a weekend getaway in Savannah and would rent it again without hesitation.
We loved it overall. There were just a few things that would make it better, but overall it was grea
The location was good, we walked everywhere, it was great! My only complaint were the beds, the rest of it was awesome!
Thanks Tammy we will be replacing the mattresses very soon.
Comfy and cozy.
Enjoyed our stay here very much. The house was well equipped, the beds were comfy, and the off street parking was a boon. Kevin was immediately available when we had a question. It5an easy walk to Forsyth Park and the free shuttle bus into the city. The only thing we would have liked would have been an extra comfy chair in the sitting room. Would highly recommend.
Great home. I would stay there again.
Wonderful New Years in Savannah
We had such a nice stay in the Santuary Place Victorian House over the New Years holiday. All I can say is the pictures don't do the house justice. It is charming! You feel like you are back in time in the old South. The location is wonderful, close enough to walk to everything yet away from the fray of being too close to the downtown area. The house is very well appointed and has everything you need. It is very clean and in good condition. The owner is so nice and thoughtful. We were a bit delayed and ended up coming in after dark. The lights were on and the house was so welcomeing when we arrived. He also help us with storing our luggage for a few hours after check-out. I've not always been happy renting homes in the past for vacations as they often are not as nice as they appear but this one was much nicer than I expected. We hope to stay again in the Spring!!!!!
This was a great house in a great neighborhood with great places nearby to eat. Kevin was extremely helpful and accessible during the entire stay. We loved it.
This location, just off the southend of Forsyth Park has a lot of advantages. The first being the park itself: 10 acres of green-space lined with 200 year old, moss covered trees. 2 large playgrounds, tennis and basket ball courts and a large amphitheater with a cafe. The park serves as a center piece for downtown life and acts as a gateway to the historic squares that make up downtown. The farmers market is every Saturday and the park host many events throughout the year. Several local favorites on this end of the park too including the Sentient Bean Cafe and Brighter Day Grocery - 2 indispensable places for many downtown residents. A free shuttle to downtown proper is just a couple of blocks over on Bull St, the trolley stop is also super close.
