Description of the Savannah vacation cottage rental

The Carriage House is 1200 square feet of charming luxury. Lovingly restored and remodeled in 2001, the owners renamed it, Taylor Cottage to more aptly fit it's size and the fact it is a complete home in itself. this enchanting Cottage sits behind and tangenital to the the historic 3 story Manor from which it originated in 1870 ensuring delightful privacy for Guests. And it has its own separate, brick-lined entrance off East Jones Lane. Coveted old savannah grey stones and old brick surround the Cottage and charmingly border both the adjacent driveway and flower boxes along the exterior of the Home. In addition, floral windowboxes drape their colorful contents from every window. While the exterior may bring to mind a fairytale cottage, the interior immediately transports you to the quiet luxury of a renaissance villa. Style meets incredible comfort amid Soft leather furnishings, tiled floors, tapestries, oil paintings, and mattresses with linens intended to leave one in blissful slumber. While the Cottage may be rented simultaneously with the Manor (which fronts Taylor Street) for parties as large as 16, rental of the Cottage alone caters to the needs of groups of 1 to 6. Those on business, romantic getaways, families, and couple getaways are ideal as well as groups including Seniors and/or the handicapped. The Cottage features a first floor bedroom, elegant but
discrete grab bars and optional shower bench in a walk in shower on the first floor, and a shallow,wide stairwell that leads to the second floor bedroom suite. Kitchen and Living Room are all on the first floor and a small, camoflauged ramp off the rear courtyard allows for ease of access when desired. The large concrete driveway behind the courtyard of the Taylor Manor lies adjacent to the private courtyard and rear entrance of the Carriage House. Both bedrooms feature Queen-sized Beds. The 2nd floor Master Suite also has a DayBed with Trundlebed as well as a small sitting area and attached bath with jetted tub.
For groups a large as 17 person, Cottage is also available in tandem with it's handsome, 3 story, historic Manor. See link on this listing for video tour and additional details if interested in renting both homes together...as the Taylor Estate.

Area Information

Spanish Moss adorns the oaks lining cobblestone streets and the famous Savannah Squares and famous Forsyth Park. The landmark historic downtown district of Savannah is the largest on the national registry measuring 1 by 2 miles. The Cottage is located in the southeast quadrant and is walking distance to all that the historic district offers. Festivals in Forsyth park, Street Fairs on River Street, Shops on Broughton and with museums, cafes, and shops dotting the streets throughout the district. Conveniently located between Forsythe to the south and the river to the north, you will find yourself close to everything yet able to retreat to the quietness of a residential street away from the revelries of late nighters. Yet you remain only steps from Tour buses and horsedrawn carriages and walking tours. Enjoy Beasely Park across the street with its grassy dog run and jogging track. Stroll down a couple blocks and view outdoor weddings held at the gazebo in beautiful Whitfield Square or go a bit further to picnic in Forsyth. Spend a morning or afternoon on River Street and then head back into the squares to explore the sites and sounds of Savannah's premier downtown destinations!

Love this place!

The cottage was super clean, up to date and had everything you could need. The location of the cottage was ideal for getting around and seeing Savannah. The owner was so nice and made every effort to make us feel like family. We will be back and recommend this place to anyone we know. It was a perfect getaway for some old friends to reunite. Love it, Love it, Love it!

Owner's reply:

Love to hear raves on our location and cleanliness! We enjoy our quiet neighborhood within the heart of the downtown historic district. You stay conveniently close to everywhere you want to go, yet refreshingly far from the bars and shops and late night crowds. You get to partake...and also separate :) as one guest once put it. Waking to birds chirping outside your window and squirrels scampering is precious. And I'm a definitely cleanness freak when it comes to our vacation rentals. I should since I house my family and friends and even myself there when it's not in use by paying Guests....and I want to stay where I know it's clean so that's what you get too ;). Thank you for the sweet words about feeling like family....ya'll were so sweet, how could it feel like anything else. I love southern hospitality....the blessing is felt on both ends!

Home away from Home

My husband & I are return guests. We went in August and again the week after Christmas. The Cottage was like a home away from home.The hosts are like family and were personally invested in our visit, giving us great suggestions on what to do and where to eat. Staying at the Cottage is a much better vacation home rental than just staying in a hotel. It is perfectly located in a quiet section of town, and most of the sites are within walking distances.

Owner Supplied Testimonials


Thank you for sharing your beautiful Carriage House with us!It was so nice, clean, and comfortable. We had a fabulous time. We enjoyed the beach and fireworks down on the riverfront. An excellent location and close proximity to both. We would love to come back and visit again. The Kinder Family

We had a lovely time staying here. The close proximity to Forsyth park was very useful for our 2 year-old. The child friendliness of the house was much appreciated. The Barons

First-timers but not last-timers. Business travel can be tough and the Carriage House was a wonderful alternative to a hotel. You have a beautiful home- thank you for the use of it. We hope to see you again. B. Martinek

This is such a quaint place to stay. Beautifully decorated and so incredibly comfortable. You have everything you need and you feel just like you're in your own home. Very quiet neighborhood so you can get your rest and relaxation in. All the necessities are here for you. Couldn't have stayed in a better place! The Wilsons

This was the perfect place for us. I had my 70 year old father and my 3 year old and your Carriage House worked so well for all of us! Thank you so very much! We will be back. Tina Baker

  • About:

    We renovated/restored this lovely historic home in 2001 with the intention of living in it ourselves...and so we did for quite a number of years! Still do...just in the other "half" of the original Manor nowadays :). As the property is large, we eventually moved "next door" and so began our renting...
