Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 2

A perfect home for a traveling couple, this luxurious retreat has a unique layout with seating areas both upstairs and downstairs. The alternating exposed brick and grey wood panel walls give a rustic feel to the industrial decor.

You’ll find everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The first floor has a large couch and TV, a dining table for four, and a half bath tucked away under the staircase. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, beautiful dark cabinets, and a breakfast bar for morning musings.

Upstairs is a spacious master suite with a king sized bed and sitting area. The balcony off of the bedroom is perfect for catching a sunset, having a cup of coffee, or reading a book. The bathroom has an open shower with built-in seating and a large vanity with plenty of room to get ready for an evening on the town.

You’ll be just a quick walk from Mrs. Wilkes Dining House on Jones Street, where you’ll find some of the best Southern home cooking in the city. Take a leisurely morning stroll through Forsyth Park to people watch while having coffee at the Sentient Bean, and don’t forget to check their upcoming events for live music and theatrical performances!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first time to stay over night in Savannah. We were at the carriage house for 3 nights and it was just as advertised. The location was two blocks away from Mercer House and one block from Forsyth Park. The location could not be more perfect for those who want to explore the City. I really only have minor complaints about the property - mainly don't count on doing a load of laundry. This was a terrible little machine. But, If that is all you can say bad - you know it is perfect. Thank you so much.

Reviewer Comments:

The apartment is awesome. Has everything you need. A little bit of a walk to the riverfront but this is a reason to visit all the squares and see the houses. Try parking next to the animal hospital two blocks away. We were able to park there for free for four days. Don't expect a hello or a wave from the woman you share the garden common space. Very unfriendly. Stay away from the restaurant Jazz'd. Food was not very good and was expensive. Would stay at this place again no questions asked.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay at the Whitaker Carrage House was wonderful, the space is very much my style, clean, efficient and comfortable. Having coffe on the balcony off the bedroom was so relaxing. My fiancé thought the bed was one of the most comfortable she had ever slept in. The court yard is beautiful, there is a tree in the center that is so amazing. Forsyth park is less than a block away, It is the most beautiful southern park of all. I've stayed in many properties in Savannah while visiting my daughter who attends SCAD, all of which were very nice, But the Whitaker home stands out.

They were very efficient and I loved the app. It made things very easy. The noise on the street kept us up at night but that was not anything they could control.Some comfy seats on the balcony would be nice!

Reviewer Comments:

Absolutely wonderful accommodations! Perfect location right near Forsyth Park. This is a former carriage house transformed into a wonderful place to stay. It shows vintage details while at the same time mixing contemporary designs. Two large levels with the bedroom on the upper level. Upstairs includes a balcony overlooking a courtyard. Only thing that I would suggest would be a larger coffee pot. We invited another couple over for coffee. The pot can only make 2 cups at a time. We will definitely be back.
