Savannah vacation rentals center you in local neighborhoods complete with shaded cobblestone walkways, lovely tropical gardens and jaw-dropping architecture. You will feel like a resident within minutes as you absorb the heart-warming aura of Southern charm. While Southern Belle’s list of vacation rentals Savannah GA includes accommodations for groups of all sizes, our medium-sized Savannah vacation homes are among our most popular. Craftsmith Cottage is one of these that is ideally appointed for groups of four guests.
Attention to Detail Throughout
This Arts and Crafts-era bungalow sleeps four comfortably and features two bathrooms. Private parking, wireless Internet service and laundry facilities are just some of the perks you will enjoy when you stay in Savannah vacation rentals. You can travel light because most of the items you need for ultimate convenience are already provided.
When you cross the threshold of Craftsmith Cottage, the newly decorated living room welcomes you with a cool, airy color scheme, comfortable armchairs and sofa seating, large curtained windows and a flat-screen TV. The Persian-style area carpet offsets the gleam of polished hardwood flooring, and a ceiling fan keeps the atmosphere light.
Mere steps along the home’s central hallway, a sunlit chamber boasts two twin beds, a ceiling fan and a double closet. The full bath is just across the hall, providing tub/shower facilities and a pedestal sink. All Southern Belle vacation rentals Savannah GA are stocked with enough bed linens and plush towels to see you through your stay.
The complete kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, including refrigerator, dishwasher, range-oven and coffee maker. A breakfast nook nestles in the corner, and the back door opens to a roomy screened porch furnished with padded seating, a ceiling fan and a bistro table. You will love the luxury of insect-free outdoor living throughout the mild Savannah evenings. The back door provides a private entryway from your dedicated parking area.
The second bedroom, adjacent to the kitchen, boasts sleek painted wood furnishings, including an inviting queen-size bed and a chest of drawers with another flat-screen TV. A walk-in closet hosts your stacked washer and dryer set, and just beyond, your ensuite bath awaits with a glass-enclosed shower, ideal for getting ready for busy days in the city.
Popular Destinations and Must-Sees
Like the majority of Savannah vacation homes, Craftsmith Cottage is ideally located near several of the Historic District’s verdant squares. You can stroll to a different one each morning of your visit and still have plenty of new sights to see. Head west on Charlton Street to Troup Square, which was named for 19th-century Georgia governor George McIntosh Troup. See the Armillary Sphere sundial and watch area residents bring their pets to the special dog watering fountain, the source for the park’s nickname of Dog Bone Square.
Trek a few blocks further east to Lafayette Square, a lovely garden spot named after the Marquis de Lafayette of Revolutionary War acclaim. Soak up some refreshing mist from the fountain and be sure to view the distinctive architecture of such bordering homes as the Andrew Low House, the Hamilton-Turner House, and the Greek revival-style childhood home of writer Flannery O’Connor.
Turn north on Abercorn Street to visit the Colonial Park Cemetery, known by some as the city’s most heavily haunted location and a popular stop on Savannah’s famous ghost tours. The cemetery hosts the tombs of famous figures in the area’s rich history, including a number of long-ago Georgia governors.
To the north of the cemetery lies Ogelthorpe Square, named for the founding father of Savannah. Stop by the Owens-Thomas House Museum on Abercorn Street, which bears the title of the city’s most sophisticated home. Continuing around the block bordering the square, you can view some wonderful examples of Greek revival architecture in several stately brick homes.
By now, you have probably worked up an appetite, and area establishments offer a full spectrum of food choices. Grab some gourmet sandwiches at Zunzi’s takeout, a block west of Ogelthorpe Square on York Street, and have a picnic in the park. Snag a treat at Leopold’s Ice Cream to the north on East Broughton Street, or have a sit-down meal at the Old Pink House on Abercorn at Reynolds Square.
You can climb aboard the shuttle bus, free of charge for guests staying in Savannah vacation rentals, at several points throughout the district. Among the most popular visitor destinations are City Market and River Walk, great shopping and dining venues where you can explore a variety of shops housed in old cotton warehouses or enjoy refreshments in the open air.
No matter what time of year brings you to Savannah, you will probably find some sort of annual event that sparks your interest, such as:
- September: Savannah Jazz Festival
- November: Food and Wine Festival
- December: City Market Holiday Open House
- February: Georgia Heritage Celebration’s Colonial Faire and Muster
