About the property

1BR/1BA Carriage House in Gated Courtyard. Sleeps 2-4 Landmark Historic District

SVR-00084 | City of Savannah Short-Term Vacation Rental Certificate

Stay in your very own historic retreat! The phenomenal ambience of this 1852 Savannah carriage house will be be remembered long after your vacation (or weekend getaway) has ended.

This is an ideal location in the center of the Historic District! A block north of Forsyth Park and just one block off of Bull Street which is the center of downtown! Walk to everything from here. Less than a mile to River Street.

Two stories with a King bed upstairs and a Full-size pullout sofa bed in the living room downstairs. A cute fully equipped kitchen with brick walls is on the first floor by the living room. A bathroom with pedestal sink, granite tiled floors, and shower is located upstairs by the bedroom adjacent to a separate dressing room. Best of all, a private upper porch/balcony accessed from the bedroom and overlooking the courtyard is yours to enjoy.

This charming two-story Carriage House is located within a gated courtyard in the rear of one of Savannah’s noted “Gordon Row” townhomes circa early 1850’s. With access from a gated entrance, this stylish two-story 1BR/1BA apartment has an almost ‘loft-like’ feel. The living room has an open floor plan as does the bedroom on the upper level.

A laundry room with coin-operated washer and dryer is available on site shared between the 5 total rental units in the building. The Carriage House overlooks the bricked and landscaped courtyard shared between the year-round residents and guest at this classic Savannah estate.

Note: If your selected travel dates are not available for the Carriage House, check-out our sister vacation rental listing for the 1BR/1BA Garden Apartment located on the ground level of the main house (see listing ID at VRBO Listing #675593). We also own several larger homes in the Historic District that are offered as vacation rentals, so please inquire if you need a larger space.

A pass is only needed on weekdays (Mon-Fri) from 8-5. To purchase a visitor's parking pass, you must provide your license plate number/state on the vehicle.

-Parking is free on weekends! No charge for metered parking (and no pass needed) from Friday at 5pm until Monday at 8am.

About Jon and Carmen

Savannah is our passion. We have a love of her history, her architecture, her people, culture, and lifestyle. We have lived in Downtown Savannah for over 20 years transforming ourselves from renters, to homeowners, to full-time property managers to the more than a dozen historic properties we have been so fortunate to preserve. We have rented a number of our properties over the years to countless corporate and vacationing travelers. We are excited in 2015 to now be part of the Homeaway/VRBO family to be able to serve you, our guest, every step of the way from initial rental inquiry about our home to completion of your Savannah stay. We look forward to sharing our passion for Savannah and historic homes with you.

Jon and Carmen purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Jon and Carmen chose Historic District - South

Aside from the unique charm of this carriage house, it has what vacationers are looking for in its location meaning they can just walk out the door and be in the middle of the 'tourist attractions' of downtown Savannah. Lucky for us the tourist attractions are mainly beautiful outdoor areas like Forsyth Park (one block south of this house) and the gorgeous Squares throughout downtown in addition to the standout architecture and history found at almost every building you walk past.

What makes this cottage unique

For a one bedroom property this accommodation feels like (and truly is) a 'real house'. A great romantic getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The carriage house was perfect. Staying in the historic area where we could walk to everything was great. Would definitely go back and recommend.

The carriage house is on a gorgeous street and walkable to almost any point of interest. The home itself is quaint and just a charming nest in the middle of historic Savannah.

Carmen is very responsive to any question we had and just overall very hospitable.

Thank you Carmen and Jon for making our stay is Savannah such a joy!

Delightful in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

When (not "If") we come back, this will be our first choice of accommodation. Clean, quaint, cozy, beautifully decorated, steeped in history and offering all the necessary modern amenities, the location is perfect. Less than a block away from the Mercer-Williams House and walking distance to almost everything, including the free shuttle to everything else a little father north. We rented a car, but would not bother with one next time, especially for this site. Jon and Carmen are wonderful, thoughtful and always one text or phone call away for anything you need.

Very Nice Cottage in Historic District, so convenient

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable cottage with king size bed up one flight of stairs. Short walk from street parking to Carriage House through courtyard. Kitchen is basic but fine for a short stay. Very convenient to free transportation downtown and/or walking. Two blocks from beautiful Forsythe Park

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about Jon and Carmen and their property. First of all, the location was amazing! Steps from beautiful historic Savannah's downtown. Second, the accomodations were extremely comfortable and Jon and Carment made us feel very welcome. I can't think of a better way to spend my birthday weekend!

Centrally located in Historic Downtown Savannah! The location and setting of the Carriage House can not be beat. Just steps to Forsyth Park and the Forsyth Park Fountain, one of the most visited attractions by visitors to Savannah. The Carriage House is situated between the beautiful moss-draped Chatham and Monterey Squares and surrounded by exquisite architecture including notable Savannah landmarks. This is what Savannah is all about!
