About Ed

I grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated from Temple University majoring in Architecture. I currently live on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. We currently have 4 rental properties from Florida to New Jersey.

Ed purchased this house in 2006

Why Ed chose Savannah

My daughter graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a masters in Architecture. She was the inspiration for the purchase of this house and lived here while attending college.

What makes this house unique

Paula Deen lived here during the mid 1990's and started here business as the bag lady. Working in her kitchen and sending Bobby and Jamie out on their bikes to serve bag lunches to the local businesses in downtown Savannah.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Paula Deen house has been the Best Place to stay. The house has everything we needed. We utilized every part of this house with our 7 people and the back yard was a unanimous favorite.

The house is close to everything.

We were surprised by the trolley stopping in front of the house. That made everyone more excited that we were staying here.

On one of our adventures we stumbled across the gift shop for Paula's store and discovered that she was doing a book signing and we were able to meet with Paula and her family!

We shared with them where were staying and they were all excited. Jamie even said he might come over and knock on the door, that he hasn't been there in 20+ years.

We enjoyed the Lady and Sons for dinner the next night. Then Saturday for lunch, we saw Paula and family at Chick Fila.

This has been the "Best Vacation Ever".

It was cozy, warmth feeling , lovely and homey.

  • 4 of 5

It is a great house and it was a pleasure to stay at old Paula Deens house. I love all her recipes. Ed Zorn, the owner was very accommodating and was able. To help us with all our needs. The pull up bed in the living room was very uncomfortable so we ended up making few adjustment and changes with our sleeping arrangement. But other than that, it was great.

We had a wonderful stay at this home. Perfect backyard, plenty of room, beds were comfortable, and the house is fully stocked with just about anything you need. Very close to down town, but about a 30 min drive to Tybee Island, which was fine, because when I go to the beach a stay as long as I can😊?. I would definitely stay again to do due more site seeing in Savannah. An uber does not cost much to get down town, or you can pay about $15.00 to $20.00 to park, Unless you don't mind walking, we had Mamaw with us:).

Great stay!!! Ty

We had a most comfortable and pleasant stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house has 3 nice bedrooms with comfortable beds and pillows. One queen and one King share a bathroom. The second queen bedroom has a private bath.

I have never stayed in a rental that had so many extra additions. There were paper plates and napkins as well as foil and saran wrap. Had plenty of coffee filters and lots of plates and cooking utensils. There were six of us and we enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean. It has a large and lovely back yard. Seating for 8 outside. Quiet neighborhood.

Thank you for allowing us to rent your house. We had a great time. We went to Tybee Island and swam, then to the Crabshack and ate and fed the alligators. We went to Ft. Puloski and Ft. Jackson. Stopped by Juliett Gordon Low's house (girl scouts), then sauntered around downtown Savannah until we found an original restaurant, Spanky's and ate. We Woke up Sunday and worshiped at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist which is magnificent church!

Each night we came back to the house to visit and play games.

The only issue(s) if you call it that: Kitchen needs more lighting (Owner advised there were unnoticed dimmer-slides next to switches). The fish pond needs more water. Seems the fish are spending time at the top which indicates need of oxygen (owner was going to add water - there's been little rain lately), and the loose-leaf pages you mentioned were not found (owner was going to locate/replace).

We had a great time. Thank you again.
