Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 bedroom (double bed), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2 adult)

Check-in time is 3:00 pm with check-out at 10:00 am for this rental located at 213 East Hall Street, Savannah, Georgia, 31401. No pets allowed.

Brockington Hall Inn Suite is a cozy little suite (459 sq. ft.) in Savannah’s Historic District. Situated on a quiet tree-lined, brick-paved street of beautiful residences, we are within a block and a half from Forsyth Park and of the Mansion on Forsyth Park. We are also within walking distance (for spry people!) of most of Savannah’s famous sites. We provide one off-street parking space and parking is not metered in our area.

Cancellation policy is that upon notice of cancellation THROUGH VRBO (and therefore in writing), owners will immediately seek to re-rent the property. If property is re-rented, any loss to owner will be offset against deposit along with $50.00 fee. Transfer of deposit to other available dates may be allowed.

Please note: We operate a wedding venue on the floor above this suite so there is a possibility that there will be noise in this suite until 10:00 pm or so, especially on weekends. If that would be a problem for you, you may wish to consider our other property at the same address, the Cottage, VRBO # 403378.

Located about 25 blocks from the center of the City, and redone in 2011, the Inn offers a living room, bedroom, and eat-in kitchen for small meals, with a private entrance.

The Inn Suite is located in a tastefully-renovated 16th Century Classic Italianate villa-style mansion built in 1882 which houses an event venue and private apartments as well. You can see more about the building on our website, Brockington Hall, and on our Facebook page, Brockington Hall Event Venue and Inn.

The informality of the Inn Suite’s design and furnishings and its modest rental rate make it especially suited to the young at heart who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Savannah itself without staying in a formal space. A full kitchen with facilities for light cooking is provided, and you can bring home your treats from Savannah’s many fine restaurants for later snacks. You can cook your own breakfast or have breakfast nearby in the Cafe at Forsyth Park, which has Starbucks coffee. A Kroger grocery store is a block away down the lane, and Johnny Ganem's wine and liquor store is three blocks away. The Inn suite is approximately 459 square feet.

A Tassimo coffee-maker is provided, with coffee, tea, sugars, Splenda, and creamer.

In addition to the private entrance, the Inn Suite has wireless Internet access, cable TV service via two flat-screen TVs, and its own security system. You will have free use of Brockington Hall’s shared laundry facility, off-street parking for one vehicle, and maid service at a reasonable frequency after a two-night’s stay, if requested.

The Inn Suite is a smoke-free facility. Smoking is allowed outside the building. There is a small, unadorned, concrete-pad, fenced area with seating where you can smoke.

One off-street parking space is provided. Parking spaces are small. If you have a large vehicle, you may need to park in unmetered, on-street parking, and to be mindful of street sweeping signs.

A two night minimum stay is required, but we'd love for you to be our guests for an extended stay as well.

We do ask that you let us know your anticipated time of arrival so that we can plan our days (and nights).

Cancellation policy is that upon notice of cancellation THROUGH VRBO (and therefore in writing), the owners will immediately seek to re-rent the property. If property is re-rented, any loss to owner will be offset against deposit along with $50.00 fee. VRBO’s booking fee is not refundable. Transfer of deposit to other available dates may be allowed.

Keywords: Suite with small kitchen. Contemporary apartment-style unit in an Historic Residence, one block from Savannah's famous Forsyth Park and steps away from all major landmarks and sightseeing.

About Lee Mundell

The Inn was opened in 2011 by Lee and Melissa Mundells -- lawyers by occupation -- in a building inherited from Lee's parents. United States Air Force Retired Lieutenant General Lewis Mundell and his wife Elsie lived in the house for 20+ years. The house has been featured in tours hosted by Historic Savannah Foundation and by the city's Downtown Neighborhood Association. Lee has served as President of both of these organizations, and we are committed to preservation of Savannah's unique characteristics.

Lee Mundell purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Lee Mundell chose Historic District - South

Lee and Melissa have lived in Savannah since 1977, when Brockington Hall was operated as an event venue. The senior Mundells purchased the building as their private residence in 1981, with some rental apartments on floors other than their residence on the parlor floor.

The suite was a modest apartment built in the 1960's in an addition to the main building.

What makes this apartment unique

When you stay in the Inn you will be staying in the country's largest historic district, on one of Savannah's loveliest streets with easy access to the City's wealth of architecture, museums, shopping, and history. Situated at the south end of the Historic District, we are approximately a mile from River Street, the north border of the roughly one square mile district. We are a block from a bus tour stop at Forsyth Park where you can board a free shuttle or paid tour, a block from a grocery store, and four blocks from a liquor store (if that matters).

Southern charm!

  • 5 of 5

Property just as expected. Loved it. Very clean, all the amenities to cool breakfast each morning, and a comfortable bed. The location is awesome, upscale Kroger Food Mart around the corner, 8-10 minute walk to hop onto Old Town Trolley, and a very nice Italian restaurant less than a 5 minute walk. The owner, Lee, was a gracious host, giving us helpful and much needed info, as it was our first visit to Savannah.

Beautiful area, cute rental space.. but that mattress 👎

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival we were taken back by the beauty of the area, the grandeur of the homes. The actual rental space was visually appealing, a little dark but that’s fine with us. The only downside to our trip was that springy mattress. Otherwise a nice relaxing, laid back trip to Savannah.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We've never had any complaint about the mattress before; in fact, we have had compliments about it. And we're not quite sure what you felt was wrong. But we'll check it out.

Close to Historic District

  • 3 of 5

The location of the house is approximately a mile from the historic district of Savannah. The house was built in 1882 and the accommodations are small apartments located in the back of the house. The apartment is clean, a double bed, air condition but musty and dated. We were only there for two nights and gone majority of the day. Only there to sleep and shower. Lee is very nice and helpful.

Owner's Response: We have read this review carefully and we deem it appropriate to clarify that our suite is not located “a mile from” the Historic District. It is located in the mile-square Historic District, at its south end, approximately a mile from the river at the District’s north end. The suite was an apartment which had been occupied continuously since 1982 when, in 2010, we converted it to vacation-rental use. The listing states the square footage of the suite and includes accurate photos of its decor. The central air conditioning for the suite is left on at all times in an effort to avoid any “mustiness” but humidity and heat in Savannah can be a challenge. We are sorry that this visitor was disappointed.

Location, location, location!!

I cannot stress enough about the location of this property. You are 1 block from the beautiful Forsyth Park and within a mile of River Street. Everything is within walking distance. The owner, Lee, was fabulous. He introduced us to the property and area attractions. He even moved his car so we could use the driveway during our stay. The place was quiet and had everything we needed for a few days stay. The trolley tour we took even stopped and talked about the house we were staying in. It's like you were staying in a little piece of Savannah history.

Love Savannah!

  • 5 of 5

Lee,

My husband and I stayed at the same property last April (2017) as well and again enjoyed our stay! I love walking around the city and the fact that we are so close to many attractions. Forsyth Park is gorgeous and just a block away, grocery store is practically in back yard and the house itself was perfect for Rich and I, definitely could not beat the price! We will be coming back next year! Thank you for greeting us upon arrival and making sure we had everything we needed for our stay.

Great location but some issues.

  • 2 of 5

Great location, very near many of the beautiful squares. Great bakery two blocks down with sweets and sandwiches.

However, when we got to the apartment, I was very disappointed. It was in the very back of the historic building, near the alley. When the housekeeper opened the door, it was dark and smelled funny. She opened the blinds, which helped, but the windows were painted shut, so no fresh air. The owner did offer to have someone come and pry them open. We said not to bother because we had already decided we would not be staying there a second night. The furniture was a very uncomfortable futon and chair, which made sitting there difficult. They were noticeably dirty, so I asked the housekeeper for extra sheets to cover them. The carpet on the floor was a dark brown indoor-outdoor carpet you might use in a basement. The double bed was comfortable but really only good for one person. The window faces the alley walkway. Since we were so uncomfortable we did leave one day early and asked the owner for some of our money back, but he flatly said no so we left after one night.

Owner's Response: Our experience with these guests (D, the husband, and B, the wife) was quite unpleasant. In the course of their communications with our housekeeper and then with us, they asserted that B suffers from claustrophobia, then asthma, and then a cold; complained that the windows did not open when it was 80 degrees outside; asked for a different coffee-maker than was advertised and for extra sheets because D did not want to sleep in the bed with B; asserted that the suite was in a basement when it is at ground level; and, immediately announcing that they were leaving earlier, offered to not give us a bad review if we could give them “some compensation.” Another coffee-maker and the requested extra sheets were provided. Now they say they were disappointed with carpet and furniture and that the bed was a double bed. The furniture and double bed were described in the listing and shown in the photos and the guests had not made us aware of any special health concerns. In 8 years with VRBO, we had never had guests threaten us with a bad review unless they received compensation. We live on the premises and do everything we can to accommodate our guests within reason. We tried unsuccessfully to address all of the concerns that these guests expressed at the time.
