The Space

This home was built at the turn of the century and combined the popular federal design with aspects of antebellum and colonial styles. Beautifully kept through the years, the home still features original wood flooring, an original fireplace, and original hand-crafted crown modeling.  Built on the grounds of the original Trustees’ Garden, this historic area of Savannah has played a significant role in Savannah’s history. First as an experimental garden, then as various military forts and Ironworks, and now as an incredible combination of beautiful venues. You are genuinely staying atop Savannah’s history with a stay at Avery's Cottage. Embark on your stay by entering the cottage through a private entrance in a garden filled with greenery and brick-laying paths. Directly inside, step into the breakfast and kitchen space. In the breakfast area is a table set for four, accented by abundant natural light from surrounding windows. The galley kitchen connects the entry and dining space to the rest of the home. Featuring new stainless-steel appliances, custom cabinets, and everything you need to cook. Pots, pans, kitchen utensils, dishware, and small appliances ensure the kitchen is ready for a short or extended stay. The home’s primary dining and living room create a single open space perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. Find an oversized queen sofabed, two comfortable sitting chairs in the living room, and a smart TV ready to stream your favorite shows. The home provides an ensuite bedroom with its own private bathroom. Find a new queen mattress wrapped in crisp linens and plush pillows in the ensuite. Shiplap walls and oversized windows create a warm, comfortable setting perfect for a restful night’s sleep. The ensuite bathroom features a single vanity, toilet, and shower/tub combination. The bathroom is outfitted with all essentials, including towels, toilet paper, shampoo, body wash, and a hair dryer. The home's second bedroom is situated off of the living room and provides a comfortable space with a new queen mattress and fresh linens. The second, shared bathroom is accessible through the living room and features a single vanity, toilet, and low-entry shower. It is also equipped with all the essentials. Are you working remotely during your stay? Our High-speed WIFI supports videoconferencing and multitasking. Host tip? Enjoy your coffee on the back porch, taking in the subtle sounds of Savannah and the wind blowing through the old-growth trees surrounding the property.

Guest Access

You may use/access anything in the apartment. Our home is yours! We encourage you to use the rear porch/courtyard to enjoy some morning coffee or evening cocktails :)
