Treat yourself and your friends, family or business associates to Southern hospitality Savannah style by booking one of our exceptional vacation rentals Savannah GA for your upcoming stay.
A Southern Beauty
Prepare to be amazed when you step through the double entry doors into the foyer of the Jesse Mount House, an absolute jewel among Savannah vacation rentals, located in the city’s highly desirable Historic District. This spacious Civil War-era home has lived several lives over, the most recent one being that of a popular inn. Now newly reinvented, it is ideal for groups of six, offering three bedrooms plus three and one-half baths. Hardwood flooring and decorative fireplaces throughout, a grand player piano and French doors are a few of the highlights you’ll fall in love with.
The main level of this three-story property hosts a polished entryway complete with an antique hall mirror, a stairway on the right and the gracious living room to the left. When you step into this parlor-style space, you will feel as if you’ve fallen squarely into the lap of luxury. Lovingly kept period furnishings, gleaming floors and exquisite area rugs share the room with a stunning stone fireplace, the grand piano and huge windows overlooking the oak-festooned neighborhood. Antique artwork, vivid colors and a sparkling crystal chandelier all coordinate beautifully in this professionally decorated, communal space.
Step through the large archway to the formal dining room, where the expansive table can seat all six of your party for those family-style meals that are so elemental to the group experience. The fireplace, chandelier, antique sideboards and gilded mirror compliment the elegance that dominates. Get ready to be overwhelmed, however, when you go through to the adjoining kitchen.
Floor-to-ceiling windows surround you with the sunlit beauty of Savannah, and double sets of French doors beckon you to take time to enjoy the jasmine-scented outdoor terrace. Before you do, though, discover all the amenities the kitchen offers you, from generous custom cupboards, filled with all the tableware and cookware you might need, to ample granite counter space. High end appliances, a farmhouse sink and bistro-style seating make eating in more fun. This may be the most amazing kitchen in any of our vacation rentals Savannah GA.
All three ensuite bedrooms are just upstairs. On the second floor, you’ll find a master bedroom with a four-poster king-sized bed. Complete with fireplace and French doors, this exceptional bedroom opens to the master bath, which includes a luxurious slipper tub, a glass-enclosed shower plus a private lavatory. Also off the master bedroom is a library/home theater where you can push a button to access the big movie screen for your entertainment pleasure. A handy dressing room is just around the corner.
Up one more set of stairs are the two remaining bedrooms. Both feature fireplaces, lovely period furnishings, and cushy queen-sized beds. Each adjoining bath incudes generously sized soaking tubs, showers and tons of closet space. One of the suites features a charming child’s sitting room with vintage toys and an antique phonograph.
In addition to numbering among the most stunning Savannah vacation rentals, the Jesse Mount home is ideally located near all sorts of restaurants, monuments, parks and shops. It neighbors both Mrs. Wilke’s Dining Room and the Crystal Beer Parlor, both wonderful places to soak up some Southern charm. The Hurn Museum of Contemporary Folk Art sits only a few blocks away while the Savannah College of Art and Design is just a short walk further.
Luckily for those of you who love the fresh air, the Jesse Mount Home is closer to the district’s anchor greenspace, Forsyth Park, than most Savannah vacation homes. This long-established park offers dozens of opportunities to enjoy the temperate climate. The Garden for the Blind, the grand fountain, the Confederate Monument, plenty of walking trails, tennis courts and athletic fields are some of the things to see and do there.
The Historic District’s City Market and River Street offer great shopping, dining and live music venues in the renovated brick cotton warehouses of days gone by. You can travel by foot, visiting some of the district’s 22 park squares along the route, or grab one of the free shuttles and sightsee at your leisure. If you have history buffs in your group, a stop at the Colonial Park Cemetery may be a priority. Make sure you have plenty of daylight, though, because rumor has it that the cemetery is haunted.
