Description
Modern conveniences await in this beautifully appointed, newly renovated Southern home nestled just off one of Savannah's famous, beautiful squares. As you step inside to the stone entryway, you'll enjoy the airy feel of the bright decor. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook a romantic dinner atop stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The master bedroom features a Queen sized bed, desk area, and a flat screen TV. The master bathroom has a clear glass and marble stand-up shower and a pedestal sink. The living room features plenty of seating around a decorative fireplace with a flatscreen TV and a cozy dining area for two. Outside, you can catch a cool Savannah breeze while sipping sweet Southern tea rocking away the summer nights on the rocking chairs on your back patio.

History
The vacation rental offers everything necessary to enjoy your stay in the historic district of Savannah and has been around for hundreds of years. The home was originally built in 1838 and is the oldest home in Savannah south of Liberty Street. It was built in two stages – the original wood-sided portion (left side) was constructed in 1838 and the stucco portion (right side) was added in 1860. Lewis Bird, a prominent Savannah attorney at the time, began the original construction but sadly perished with his entire family on the Steamship Pulaski when it exploded off the coast of North Carolina and sank on June 14, 1838. Mr. Bird's mother completed the house and later sold it to his law partner Mr. Baldwin who lived in it for many years. As one of the nicer manor homes along Liberty Street in Savannah during the Civil War, the house was seized and occupied by General Sherman’s staff in December 1864 as part of their capture of Savannah during the infamous Sherman’s March to the Sea. Over the years, the house has been a private residence, a boarding house and a neighborhood tavern known as "Harry's Place." By the 1960s, it had deteriorated so badly that homeless people were living in it and it had caught fire several times – yet the house miraculously survived.

This property was wonderful and we loved it. Loved the location, the security, the parking and all within walking distances to many many things. We will absolutely stay there again. The place was so efficiently maintained, super clean and just felt like a home away from home. Thank you all so much for mine and David's wonderful vacation.

Amazing place for the cost. Understandably, I compare this to beach destinations, but the overall rental amenities and style were top tier at a very reasonable cost.
