Photos and Description of the Beach Institute vacation cottage rental

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage with Private Courtyard & Pool

This historic cottage in downtown Savannah was built for Clifford A. King in 1871. It is on the eastern border of Savannah's Historic District, between Jones Street and Liberty. You can walk to restaurants, antique stores, bars, and museums from this cottage.

This 135-year-old cottage is clean as a whistle and cute as a button. It is freshly renovated with modern amenities. You have your own private plunge pool in Cottage 331’s private rear courtyard. Having a dip while the fountain bubbles away is the perfect way to relax after a day of exploring the city.

The house is full of small treats, convenient features, and oversized mirrors. The owners, Chance and Julie, are avid travelers themselves, and want to spoil their guests with the little things that help make a travel experience special and romantic. They even insist that you help yourself to a complimentary bottle of wine--a small gesture to make you feel welcome.

There are 2 bedrooms and each has a king bed. A newly renovated bathroom is convenient to both bedrooms, located off the living room. The kitchen has granite countertops, modern LG and Samsung appliances, and is fully equipped for cooking. There is also a full size brand new front loading washer & dryer for your convenience!

Parking is free & easy on-street at this location. No permit is required.

This is next to "Cottage 333" which is VRBO #748967. Each cottage has its own separate private courtyard and pool.

A word on history: While the actual beach at Tybee Island is 17 miles away, this cottage is in a neighborhood in the Historic District that has what locals call "Beach cottages." These adorable homes are so-called for their proximity to the "Beach Institute." The Beach Institute was a school built in 1867 by the Freedmen’s Bureau of the American Missionary Association for the education of newly freed slaves. The school was named for New Yorker Alfred S. Beach, editor of the Scientific American, who donated funds for the site. The institute closed in 1919 when other schools opened. In its place is now an African-American Cultural Museum and tourist landmark of downtown Savannah. Beach cottages were built in the mid 1800's to house the working class of railroad laborers and craftsman that created the beautiful structures of historic Savannah. This small cottage is a remnant of that proud heritage.
