Outside areas include upstairs deck and downstairs patio, covered and uncovered.

Spend your time while visiting this gorgeous property by taking a stroll over the grounds, walking to the dock to observe the sea birds and wildlife or leisurely sitting on the upstairs deck watching the sun set through the old majestic oak trees. It’s truly magical!

This riverfront estate is only 10 minutes to historic downtown Savannah and 15 minutes to Tybee Island Beach. Stay in this perfect setting for your vacation, honeymoon, romantic get-away or business trip.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this by far was the best of all! The boathouse is decorated beautifully, with everything you need available to you. The location was perfect for us...we enjoyed sitting and sunning on the dock, driving nearby to Tybee Island and of course downtown Savannah. We will definitely return!

Perfect Honeymoon House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in March at the boat house for our honeymoon. The residence is located centrally enough between the historic district and Tybee Island that we were able to explore both several times during our stay. Patsi and Brian keep this house clean and well furnished, and we were happy just spending a couple of days unwinding on the property. The Smiths maintained good communication with us before, during and after our booking. They also provided a binder full of useful information, along with a bottle of wine, to help get our vacation started. We strongly recommend the boat house and we will be back the next time we visit Savannah.

Quiet, Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here at least three times and are always glad we did! Being halfway between Savannah and Tybee Island, you get the best of both worlds. The fully stocked kitchen allows you to eat in or save/ reheat meals in the beautiful atmosphere of this home. The dock is fun; bring a fishing pole! Brian and Patsi are incredibly charming and hospitable; always ready to help you have the best possible experience. Can't wait to go back!

We loved celebrating our anniversary at this amazing little house and in Savannah. Brian and Patsi were welcoming and had my favorite bottle of wine waiting for us! The property is beautiful and not in a congested neighborhood so it was just perfect for us! You will love it here!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous cottage! My husband and I spent several nights in the Boathouse to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Boathouse is spotless and beautifully furnished and was ideal for a much needed quiet and romantic getaway. The location is perfectly situated near Tybee Island and Savannah. You can do as much or as little as you like! We would highly recommend the Boathouse.

Great Low-Country Hide-Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Boathouse for week in August to celebrate a birthday and take a true romantic vacation for the first time in 7 years! This place did not disappoint!

Everything about the house is as described - lovely decor, lots of space and immaculate.

My husband and I took full advantage of the deep-water dock and kayaks! Every morning had us out exploring all the amazing wildlife. We used the crab pot and caught some tasty blue crabs! The dock is lovely with a glass of wine in the evenings as well. We also enjoyed the deck off the upstairs bedroom quite a bit. Sitting out there with all the giant trees and dripping moss - like stepping into movie!

We explored both Savannah and Tybee Island. We enjoyed The Crab Shack for good ol' low country boil food. At Patsi & Brian's recommendation, we got take out from K Bella and was not disappointed! We went back a second time and even took leftovers home to NC with us! For a birthday celebration, we went to The Olde Pink House and it was AMAZING.

The house was very comfortable and had everything that was needed for a great stay. We arrived to a lovely lighted house with music playing and a bottle of wine! The linens were all extremely soft and smelled wonderful (seriously!). The bed was great – supportive and comfortable. There was plenty of space and everything is far from the road, so you feel like you’re in your own little oasis. It’s extremely peaceful. It was the relaxing, romantic getaway we needed!
