Savannah isn’t moonlight and magnolias all the time. This is a destination that beguiles even the most jaded travelers, and it seems fiercely protective of its historic past. Antebellum mansions and moss-draped oaks along quiet streets may be the definitive image of the city, but you get a sense of the laid back open-mindedness of the place and its people after spending a few days at Savannah vacation homes, living like a local. Whether you’re here for a brief family vacation, an extended sabbatical or work-related reasons, you’ll find everyone truly accommodating starting with the folks behind Savannah vacation rentals who go out of their way to give everyone a taste of the legendary southern welcome.
Blue Manor on Congress Beckons
Enhance the immersive experience by staying at Savannah vacation homes when you’re in this area. Choose one that is within a reasonable distance from the historic district to be closer to the action but make sure it’s secluded enough to provide the peace and quiet you hope to enjoy during your travels. The Blue Manor on Congress is one of a few spacious yet cozy vacation rentals Savannah GA that will meet the needs of larger-than-usual groups traveling together.
This is a four-bedroom property with three baths and a powder room right in the heart of the historic district. You will have the best views of bustling Congress Street from a quiet corner on the wraparound porch. This is absolutely one of the best places to be if you just want to contemplate life while sipping a glass of ice-cold sweet tea and letting the balmy breezes of Savannah wash over you.
The structure may seem imposing from the street side as most three-story structures could be especially one that can accommodate as many as 12 occupants. But as soon as you cross the threshold into the sunny interior, it will feel like coming home to a familiar place. This is what Savannah vacation rentals hoped to achieve with their meticulous update of Blue Manor on Congress. Hardwood floors and neutral walls throughout give the place a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
The foyer opens into the main parlor, which is flooded with natural light from windows on three sides of the room. Seating is decidedly un-fussy with a comfortable couch and accent chairs on a natural fiber rug. The living room set is anchored by a large traditional fireplace with the mantle used to hold a flat-screen TV. The parlor opens to a spacious dining area furnished with a wood-top dining table with seating for eight and more. A modern chandelier hints at the upgraded touches incorporated in this premium example of vacation rentals Savannah GA.
An all-white, all-modern kitchen occupies the other end of this space. Marble countertops and a white tile backsplash highlight the stainless steel appliances and glass doors on the cabinetry.
A powder room is tucked into the corner while a single French door opens to the back porch with a café table ready for you, your morning paper and a steaming cup of coffee.
A wooden staircase just off the front entrance leads to the second and third floors. The master suite is just off the stairwell. It is furnished with a king bed prepared with the kind of luxury linen and bedding that will make you want to take off your shoes and just dive in. An en suite bath boasts a deluxe design with a spacious shower, double sink vanity and a walk-in closet. The second bathroom on this floor is furnished with a queen-size bed and its own bathroom.
