One of Southern Belle’s two-person Savannah Georgia vacation rentals, The Cottage has a rustically romantic dynamic that appeals to honeymooners as well as retired couples out to rekindle the eternal flame. That doesn’t mean old friends won’t bond with this Savannah vacation rental because there’s plenty of space to kick back and share accommodations if you have some catching up to do. Southern Belle’s Savannah GA vacation rentals are great places to spend an ideal vacation in the hospitality capital of the South, no matter where your itinerary takes you.
Nestled in a shady neighborhood just a short walk from the Savannah River, The Cottage is a rare find. The front entrance opens on an enclosed porch converted to a cool, casual dining space with room for four at the table. The lighthearted ceiling fixture, hardwood floor and airy curtains create a carefree country-style look you will love. Latticed windows and a draped doorway offer a see-through view to the living room.
Vintage touches in the living room like generous wood-framed windows, crown molding and a period fireplace bring the unique flavor of historic Savannah indoors. Country plaid curtains grace the windows, piles of soft throw pillows festoon the armchairs and sofa seating, and a flat-screen TV perches on the mantelpiece, awaiting your bidding. Settle in after a day of sightseeing to catch your favorite shows.
Directly off the living room, a set of double doors leads into the master suite where the light-filled chamber, decorated in pale yellow and cream, conjures the stuff of sweet dreams. The queen-sized bed beckons with the promise of plush comfort while country curtains frame generous windows. The decorative fireplace brings to mind cozy winter nights. Choose your favorite way to wind down after an active day, whether it is reading a novel by the bedside lamp or watching late night television.
Step through to the adjoining bathroom where the subway-tiled tub and shower present equally enticing options. A stately pedestal sink, a stocked towel cupboard and water-themed wall art offer tasteful utility in a conveniently arranged space. A large, walk-in closet off the master bedroom provides a handy place to stow your luggage as well as a stacked washer and dryer for your use during your stay. You will find extra linens and towels, too.
Just around the corner, the country farmhouse-style kitchen caters to your culinary yens. Like all Southern Belle’s Savannah GA vacation rentals, a full complement of stainless steel appliances, including fridge, range/oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and dishwasher, are provided. The drawers have a full supply of utensils and flatware while the cupboards contain the dishes and cookware that you need for impromptu meals. Take a break from eating out to enjoy the intimate dining ambiance of The Cottage.
The back door provides a beckoning portal to the splendor of the Savannah riverfront and the annals of Southern history. You’ll find volumes of things to do and see right around your Savannah vacation rental.
A Portal to Adventure
Your dining options abound within this quiet yet active area of Savannah Georgia vacation rentals. Your closest choice is The Pirate’s House, which dates to 1753 and may well be among the nation’s most storied restaurants. Located in a former seafarer’s inn, this establishment contains 15 different dining rooms, each with its own unique flavor, and serves up the kind of hearty fare that will see you through hours of Savannah adventures. Additionally, the Pacci Italian Kitchen on Bay Street is within easy walking distance, and the Cha Bella Farm to Table restaurant is just south on East Broad Street.
Venture beyond your immediate neighborhood for all sorts of activities. The Cottage is one of the Savannah GA vacation rentals closest to River Street. In fact, a few blocks away you can take the Savannah Belles Ferry for a scenic tour of the riverside. It stops near the Waving Girl Statue at Morrell Park. You can also take the trolley to see the sights of River Street from the shoreline, or stroll along the walking path and watch the big cargo vessels coming into port.
You can while away several pleasant hours in the River Street shops, many of which are located in brick warehouses repurposed from the bygone Savannah cotton industry. Live music and annual festivals are going on year-round. Also, since your Savannah GA vacation rental is located in the city’s Historic District, you have several different types of tours available to you, ranging from ghost and vampire tours to architectural tours of the district’s antebellum buildings.
