| "Truly, we enjoyed our stay in the Cottage! We were
close enough to stroll to all the many attractions. Yet far
enough away to peacefully wake up to birds singing.
The home was charming and we found the accommodations
clean, relaxing, and comfortable. The pictures don't do it
justice. The owner was just delightful. We especially loved
the binder and owner's personalized map on what to see
and do. We are looking forward to returning to this lovely
"Our party of adults stayed the weekend and the
accommodations were perfect. The home exceeded
our expectations. The decor and coziness of the Cottage
was the perfect setting for a weekend getaway from Atlanta.
Thank you so much for your hospitality".

Come and enjoy the Taylor Cottage, Taylor Studio and/or Taylor Loft for true southern hospitality and comfort. Presently, both the Studio and Loft are available as year-long rentals. However, those coming to Savannah for a weekend /weekly getaway or vacation will adore the stylish comfort and convenience of the Taylor Cottage! All three homes are located on a quiet street within the heart of the coveted downtown historic district of Savannah.
The two-story, 2BR/2BA Cottage was originally built as the Carriage House to the 6400 sq. ft Manor ca. 1870 located behind it and which houses the 3rd floor Taylor Studio, 2nd floor Taylor Loft Townhouse and the Owner's home (separate entrances ensure privacy for each).
Charming and self-standing, Taylor Cottage is set far behind the original manor with its entrance off E. Jones Lane, a Gated Courtyard with deck and brick paving in the rear and window boxes adorning the lower windows on all sides. The driveway which provides parking for up to two cars front to back lies adjacent to the Cottage and another entrance is available through the courtyard as well.
Privacy, comfort and convenience is at the heart of the Taylor Cottage. All the Savannah sights to see are a simple stroll away making a car not even necessary.
As you pass through the front door, you'll find high ceilings, hardwood floors, plush furnishings, wide archways and convenient passthroughs lending an airy, spaciousness to the downstairs and that allow conversations to flow freely. The cozy kitchen sits to the left and features hand-hewn cabinets, a built-in windowseat, and an adorable antique table with built-in side leafs to allow for seating from 4 - 6 persons. A large flat-screen TV, plush furnishings( including a pullout Queen-sized sofa) and charming decor catch your eye as you make your way through the living room to the rear tiled foyer.
A full-bath with a stone-tiled walk-in shower and a curtained laundry closet with a full-sized W/D lie to your right. To your left is the first floor Queen Bedroom. Head outside to peek at the shady, gated courtyard and its deck and stone landscaping.
Turn back and head upstairs along the wide, roomy staircase to the Master Bedroom Suite which occupies the entire second floor. Built in a pseudo-loft design, the bedroom is filled with sunshine that spills in from five ceiling-to-floor windows along 3 of the walls. Polished wood floors, high ceilings, and chandelier-styled ceiling fan add to the spaciousness of this room. A large, walk-in closet complete with built-in shelving is at the top of the stair landing. Two built-in bookcases are on either side of the loft balcony railing. Further in the room is the attached bath and its jet tub/shower combo. The plush Queen Bed beckons with a mattress you'll want to pack up and take home. The room also features a sitting area with plush chairs (one of which is an oversized chair that pulls out to a twin bed), a separate table and matching high backed chairs that can be used for office work or dining, a dresser and a second flat screen television.
In the Taylor Cottage, there is never a need to "live out of a suitcase" as built-in shelving and bookcases are throughout the home allowing for guest belongings to be easily accessible.
The Cottage is Non-Smoking. Pets approved on a case-by-case basis. The kitchen is fully stocked with necessary dish/cook/bakeware and countertop amenities for nights when home-cooking is desired over dining at the myriad of restaurants and cafes that surround you. All linens provided.
Additionally, the Cottage is Senior Friendly: first floor bed/bath, shallow, one-step entrance and level threshold (from the gated courtyard), walk-in shower with discrete grab-rails and a handheld showerhead.
Modern and stylish decor seamlessly mixes with the historic, 1870 design of the home while window boxes adorn the first floor windows and grey savannah stones rim the bedrock/flower beds and brick paved entryways that lend a fairytale-esque feel as you drive up to the Cottage.
Drive the short 20 min ride to Tybee Beach for an afternoon swim, check out the numerous shops and boutiques, stroll through the famous savannah squares or enjoy cuisine that is exceptional and all of it is only a short stroll from the front porches of the Cottage, Loft and Studio!
