Fun fact: The 3 story brick building was built in 1870 for Thomas Ballentyne (a fire chief) “with all the modern improvements, suitable for a southern residence” and all for $10,000! Most of the furniture and decoration pieces are vintage, dating as far back as the early 1800’s.

Currently one of the bathrooms will be needing work in the near future. If you are looking to book, know that work will be done at some point. For this trade, we are willing to rent at a much lower price than usual.

The space
Step back in time as you stay in "Old America" You'll feel a mix of Marie Antoinette and Walt Whitman as you overlook your vine filled courtyard and write a letter to your loved one on the vintage typewriter. In the heart of downtown, walk walk!

Being in the heart of downtown Savannah is the experience you will want when visiting. With such rich history in Savannah, it's great to be staying in the Historic District in a historic home. With restaurants, bars, antique shops, and Savannah attractions all in walking distance, there is no need for a car. If your interested in taking the Trolly (hop on, hop off tour) there is a stop within a block of the home.
