This cottage may be in the Historic District but it’s as modern as can be. It’s near many attractions but away from the busy hustle and bustle with cozy furnishings, lots of books, and a very private back patio. This home is wonderfully reviewed by guests!

Not only is this cottage nested along other historical homes but it is 135 years old and literally a piece of history. The owners have nicely renovated it and included standard amenities in addition to little nuances they find comforting as avid travelers themselves. As a major bonus, the private back patio has a small pool/spa that is temperature controlled (a rare find among historic homes in the area).
Ariel writes, “This historic cottage is super charming! We’re so glad we stayed here over a hotel. Everything was clean and worked well. We really enjoyed having a kitchen and the pool was perfect for cooling off in the evenings. It’s also very close to all of the action in the historic district. Mary was an excellent host, and we’d definitely come back.”

This two story carriage house is a part of an old Southern Estate and other parts of the building are shared with the year-round residents and other renters. It’s beautifully maintained with original features and clean modern renovations. The stairways, rails, floor plan, and brick finishes will make you feel like you’ve taken a step back in time without sacrificing TV and Wifi Internet.
Doug writes, “A beautifully decorated, charming cottage. An old carriage house turned into a modern and very comfortable place to stay. King sized comfortable bed. A small kitchen big enough to enjoy a light breakfast or lunch. Dinner places close enough to walk to. Enjoyed the town and 80% of what we wanted to see was in walking distance of the cottage. The owners are available to answer all questions and help to make our stay effortless. Much better than staying in a hotel.”

The owners of this adorable suite have recently redecorated with Ikea furnishings to make the cottage feel refreshed. The rental is affordable, well-stocked, has cable TV, and is in close proximity to a cafe and grocery store. The owners write, “The informality of the Cottage Suite’s design and furnishings and its modest rental rate make it especially well-suited to the young at heart who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Savannah itself without staying in a formal space.”
This perfectly sums up this cute cottage suite! Some reviewers also shared their thoughts on how hospitable the owners were–from giving them a tour of their own historic home to helping their guests through travel inconveniences. Overall it receives excellent ratings for the location and price point!

In the 1800s, carriage drivers used to stay in a loft-like house above the stables where they kept their horses for the night. This original carriage house sits above a garage (which is a highly coveted convenience in the historic area with metered street parking). The furnishings and appliances are modern and lush, the home design is sleek, and antique pieces accessorize the home with reminders of its history. It is a beautiful rental.

This gorgeous home with a shared deep water dock and plenty of amenities is exceptionally reviewed by all who have stayed here. Kelly writes it’s “THE BEST!”, Matt calls it a “Perfect Stay in Savannah Paradise”, and Laurie calls it a “Perfect Getaway!” The cabin is located between historic Savannah and Tybee Island beaches, has all the amenities you could need, is scenic and peaceful, and you have access to kayaks. The location is wonderful but the cabin alone is a perfect vacation.
