About the property

1 bedroom, 1 & 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

Mid-century Guest House on approximately 3-acre riverfront estate with a shared boat dock on deep water.

The “Boathouse” in its entirety was rehabilitated in 2012 with stunning, high-end appointments throughout boasting a deluxe master bedroom with en suite bathroom upstairs; living room, modern kitchen and one-half bathroom downstairs. 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 shared deep water 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.

Please visit our Main House, the “RiverHouse”, at #3945044, which is located on the same property. The RiverHouse is a totally separate property and is not attached to the Boathouse. The BoatHouse guests do not have access to the RiverHouse inground pool. Both properties have access to the dock and kayaks.

Comfort and cutness galore.

Wonderful property, so cute and cozy. All the charm of the south and the marsh. Had everything we needed in comfort and more than that in atmosphere.

The BEST !!!

  • 5 of 5

The Boathouse is probably the best place we have ever stayed. Inside decor was beautiful and unique with attention to detail that provided all the comforts of home and then some. Outside landscaping beautiful and privacy excellent. We enjoyed daily visits from Jasper and Mr. Racoon. The dock in the evening was nice. We would sit and relax with glass of wine, watch the tide come in and go out, did some fishing, and was entertained by a dolphin once!! The Boathouse is the perfect location for those wanting to take in Savannah and Tybee Island!! Loved this place!!!

Wonderful, Cozy Guest House

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate and aligned with the description and pictures. My husband and I were celebrating 10 years of marriage, and this vacation was perfect! The dock was beautiful and the deck on the guest house was great for a quiet evening outdoors. The house is clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. Tybee Island is close one way and Downtown Savannah is close the other way. We were also excited to have a Kroger just a few minutes away.

Brian and Patsi left a bottle of wine for us, which was nice, and they were available for any questions or issues, which we had none. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a romantic, beautiful get-a-way.

Perfect stay in Savannah paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, relaxing stay at the Boat House. The property is beautiful, and our hosts were gracious and helpful. Their recommendations for local eats were amazing. A perfect distance from downtown Savannah and Tybee Island, the property provides the perfect escape while being close to everything you need or want to do. We'll be back!

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.
