The space

This authentic historic railroad worker cottage was built in 1872 and is beautifully updated and preserved. The photos are showing you 2 bedrooms (one has a King, the other has a Queen). This sleeps 5 max in the form of 2 couples (2 people sharing a bed, in each bedroom) and one single or child on the pullout queen sofa bed. The dining area seats 4 and the living room has a regular sofa which seats 3. The cottage is just over 800 square feet.

We have a record player & record collection in the living room!

Located on 'the prettiest street in town', Jones Street which is central to the many tourist attractions of the Landmark Historic District and walkable to everything. The northern boundary of the Historic District (River Street) is half a mile away heading north. The southern end of the Historic district (Forsyth Park) is half a mile away heading south.

A King bedroom and a Queen bedroom are side by side. French doors with heavy privacy curtains on both sides of the glass separate the bedrooms. Families can open the curtains & doors to adjoin the rooms if desired.

The bathroom is located off the kitchen for equal access to both bedrooms. A pullout Queen sofa is in the Living Room. Full size washer and dryer. The kitchen is equipped for cooking & dining. Note that no food is provided.

Parking is on-street and does not require a permit or decal (public parking is free here) as this street is not metered.

City of Savannah Short Term Vacation Rental (zoning approval)

Guest access

The cottage is your private rental with no shared interior space. The back yard is shared with 2 other cottages located on the opposite side of the yard.

Interaction with guests

I need to speak to you once on the phone.
This is a rental for independent people who enjoy privacy. I am more than happy to answer questions and send extra info about Savannah (I do have a guidebook on airbnb and a notebook in the cottage) but I will not be hanging out with you. Please do not book this one if that will disappoint you! I love chatting with guests and you won't be bothering me if you text with questions about restaurants or anything like that. Tell me if you need anything! If I do not hear from you after I tell you how to access the cottage I will assume you are enjoying yourself and I will not bother you unless there is a problem.

The neighbourhood

This cottage is in the one square mile "Historic District" of Savannah. I love that Savannah's downtown was designed for walking. It is a manageable size and beautiful too.

Getting around

We have a bus system, tour trolleys, taxi cabs, bicycle cabs, Coastal Regional Shuttles and a "bike share" rental station in Savannah!

Other things to note

Rates on this site already include 13% total required taxes.
A notebook inside the house will have your wifi password, a checkout procedure and some suggested restaurants, etc. around town.
Do not rearrange the furniture

The following is standard Savannah Luxury Rentals information: We provide sheets, toilet paper and soap. Our toilet paper is Scott brand because it decreases the chances of clogged toilet plumbing service calls and it lasts longer decreasing the chance you will run out. If you prefer thick cushioned toilet paper bring it along but use it sparingly in our older plumbing and never flush "flushable" wipes or other products that are likely to cause a clog.

Great cottage. Very clean and comfortable. Located in the historic district. 2 bedrooms and one bath, perfect for myself and my cousin. Had everything there that we needed for a great stay. Mary responded rapidly to texts. Would come back in a heartbeat or recommend to friends and family.

We had a great time at Jones Cottage. The house was perfect for four adults. It's in a fantastic location within easy walking distance of everything in the historic and downtown areas of Savannah. The neighborhood is very quiet and the beds are comfortable. The house is clean and well equipped, and check-in was a breeze. Mary was very quick to respond to a couple of texts before and after our arrival. The back courtyard is a really nice place for a late afternoon glass of wine in the sun after a day walking around Savannah.

We had A lock box to check in. That went very smoothly. Did not meet Mary but we spoke on the phone and texted her numerous times. She was very helpful , And always answered us very quickly. She was a pleasure to deal with. The place was beautiful, exactly as shown in the pictures. We definitely recommend staying here. Cottage was in a great location, close to everything you needed and wanted to do in Savannah. It was very cozy, clean and spacious.

Our stay at Mary's place was very pleasant. There were just a few things we needed that was not provided. Nothing really important,but would like to have had more bathroom supplies,(soap,towel racks,wash clothes). We did have a nice time and was comfortable while we were there.

Response from Mary:
We do provide soap, and quite a few wash cloths. They are always in the bathroom along with a row of hooks for towels. Not sure if Patricia just did not see these items or if she means she used them all and wanted more but she never mentioned it to me during her stay. We have a great set of laundry machines if anyone needs to launder the towels during a longer stay (this was a week stay). We leave 6 bath towels and more than 6 wash cloths out for each reservation. And hand soap pump and a fresh bar of bath soap.

Charming cottage. Fully equipped and spacious. Nice street with a short mile walk to downtown. A historic tour actually stops on E Jones St. right outside the cottage. Walking distance to historic sites, cafes and coffee shops. Short trip to Tybee Island but be prepared for limited and expensive paid parking. Everyone was very polite. The old cotton warehouses which have been converted into shops and restaurants on the river are a real treat.
