About the property

1 bedroom, 1 & 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

Mid-century Guest House on approximately 3-acre riverfront estate with a shared boat dock on deep water.

The “Boathouse” in its entirety was rehabilitated in 2012 with stunning, high-end appointments throughout boasting a deluxe master bedroom with en suite bathroom upstairs; living room, modern kitchen and one-half bathroom downstairs. Outside areas include upstairs deck and downstairs patio, covered and uncovered.

Spend your time while visiting this gorgeous property by taking a stroll over the grounds, walking to the shared deep water dock to observe the sea birds and wildlife or leisurely sitting on the upstairs deck watching the sun set through the old majestic oak trees. It’s truly magical!

This riverfront estate is only 10 minutes to historic downtown Savannah and 15 minutes to Tybee Island Beach. Stay in this perfect setting for your vacation, honeymoon, romantic get-away or business trip.

Please visit our Main House, the “RiverHouse”, at HomeAway.com #3945044, which is located on the same property. The RiverHouse is a totally separate property and is not attached to the Boathouse. The BoatHouse guests do not have access to the RiverHouse inground pool. Both properties have access to the dock and kayaks.

Right out of Southern Living Magazine!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Boat House. Every detail was thought of when decorating. It truly looks like it was ripped from the pages of Southern Living Mag! Beautiful inside! I can't say enough about how relaxing this house is. Its tucked away on a property with heavy foliage, so you feel secluded even though there are houses next door and behind it. The house is somewhat between downtown Savannah and Tybee Island, so we easily visited both areas. The only thing that would have made this place any better was if it was directly next to the water. You have to walk through the yard of the main house to get to the water. That's not a problem at all but it as chilly out, so we opted to not do it. The owners are extremely thoughtful and checked in with us periodically via text. We would definately rent this house again if we are back in Savannah.

Great place, quiet, clean & beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I have already recommended this house to other people. This house is not only beautiful it is very quiet. Also very clean. The bed was very comfortable. It was so nice not to stay in town. But close enough to be very handy. The Wamart & the grocery store are very close. We enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen. You will enjoy staying here!!

The house pictures are a true representation. We just loved it. A great deal of care was taken in decorating this house and it looks great. The bed is super-comfortable and the bedroom is very large. The master bathroom shower is huge. The living room is very comfortable with a really nice leather couch. And the kitchen allows you to cook anything you want.The location cannot be beat. You feel like you are in the woods with only the sound of birds. It is 12 minutes to the historic district and we never had any problem parking. There are several garages where you may park for $5 a day. It is 5 minutes from Walmart and Publix. I would rate the Boathouse 6 stars if I could. Patsi and Brian were staying in the big house and Brian texted me several times to see if there was anything we needed. Cannot wait to return.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Patsi and Brian are wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating and quick with communication.

The Boat House on their waterfront estate is a hidden gem in Savannah. It is far enough away for peace and relaxation, yet close enough to all of the attractions of Savannah and Tybee. The place was immaculate and the kitchen is equipped with everything needed. The king size bed is comfortable and linens far superior to anything you could get at a hotel.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience and will definitely return.

Thank you again Patsi and Brian!

Comfort and cutness galore.

Wonderful property, so cute and cozy. All the charm of the south and the marsh. Had everything we needed in comfort and more than that in atmosphere.

The BEST !!!

  • 5 of 5

The Boathouse is probably the best place we have ever stayed. Inside decor was beautiful and unique with attention to detail that provided all the comforts of home and then some. Outside landscaping beautiful and privacy excellent. We enjoyed daily visits from Jasper and Mr. Racoon. The dock in the evening was nice. We would sit and relax with glass of wine, watch the tide come in and go out, did some fishing, and was entertained by a dolphin once!! The Boathouse is the perfect location for those wanting to take in Savannah and Tybee Island!! Loved this place!!!
