A charming 1870's fully restored Freedman's Cottage! This historic property is recognized by the city as historically relevant. One bedroom, heart pine floors, high ceilings, working fireplace! All the modern comforts in a charming setting!
LOVELY DOWNTOWN COTTAGE.
This small group of historic cottages is located just 2 blocks from Savannah's famous Forsyth Park. They are on a quiet lane, away from the busy city streets. Built in the 1870's, these cottages were most likely intended for freedmen, domestic servants or day laborers for the larger & finer houses nearby. They boast many of the details of their larger, more elegant cousins---high ceilings, fireplaces, & heart pine floors. They have been restored to include modern kitchens; central air, back decks & landscaped courtyards.
The area is favored by college students, artists, & young professionals. There is easy walking access to the park, coffee shops, health food/grocery store, the weekly Farmer's Market & several of Savannah's finest restaurants.
The cottage is furnished in an eclectic style, with many antiques as well as more modern pieces. The bedroom is in the back, overlooking the garden area & is furnished with an antique full sized bed and double closets. Original art & local photographs are hung throughout the cottage. The living room boasts a sleep sofa (queen) & writing desk (wi fi available). There are 2 seating areas, a flat screen cable TV & a working fireplace (instructions included). The fully equipped kitchen includes stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher & washer/dryer. Kitchen is stocked with various coffee/tea supplies. There is a full bathroom with tub/shower just off the kitchen.
This cottage is ideal for a single person (ready to write that novel??---a best seller was written 2 doors down!) or as romantic getaway for a couple. The sofa bed can accomodate up to 2 additional people, but be aware that this is a small space!! COTTAGE IS NOT CHILD PROOFED & NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 15 YRS!!. Due to guests allergies, pets are not permitted on this property! There is a second listing with an identical floor plan just 2 doors down! (Miss Minnie's)--please check it out...if you have a larger group, you may want to try & secure both cottages! https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1564240?preview=true

This cottage is very cozy and inviting and, for its size, has lots of places to hang out. My husband loved doing his e-mail at the desk by the front window, I enjoyed my early morning coffee sitting in the kitchen, and we both loved lounging in the bedroom and living room planning our next adventure. My cousins met us at Rick's and there were enough chairs and room for all 6 of us to have a glass of wine on the back deck. The location was perfect; very quiet, but two blocks from the park and loads of restaurants and activities.
We enjoyed our month-long stay at Rick's cottage greatly. Everything we needed, including chocolate! We like being a little further away from the Riverfront and uptown area which, while fun, can also be pretty noisy. Rick's cottages are in the quieter, southern end of the of historic district, close to Forsyth Park and still walkable to all the restaurants, shops, etc. Recommended.
Great location. A bargain for the area. Well stocked and comfortable.
Great cottage, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on our visit to Savannah. Rick was a pleasure to work with and you can tell he goes out of his way to make sure your visit is an enjoyable one.
I loved the Forsyth Cottage. It was a beautiful place to spend my spend second wedding anniversary. The location is very close to everything. And, it felt like home away from home.
We had a great experience at Forsyth Cottages in Savannah. The place was very clean and offered many extra amenities that we were not expecting. This was a perfect location for our honeymoon it was within walking distance to all sorts of great restaurants and historical locations. I have traveled a lot both nationally and internationally and for the superb quality of this place the price cannot be beat! Rick was a great host!
I cannot say enough about Rick's cottage in Savannah! Everything we needed was there, down to extras like apple juice and yogurt in the fridge! It truly feels like staying in a friend's home. It's very inviting and comfortable. The location is great, close to historic squares and the riverfront. Also close to BoBo seafood where you can get a low country boil (enough food for two) for $8! Delicious! Rick was very cool to check in with, we hit some pretty terrible traffic and were about an hour late getting in and he was very patient with us! He briefed us on the town and where we were on the map and left brochures and restaurant suggestions. Great touch!
We had a great stay at the cottages! Very convenient, plenty of parking and a great space! Lots of little extras like yogurt in the fridge and sunscreen on the shelf if you needed it...it felt like staying at a friend's house :) and if you don't feel like lugging a hair dryer with you, there's one of those, too. Would definitely recommend!
Check in and out were a breeze! The location is great for the cost. About three blocks from the southwest end of Forsyth Park and a beautiful walk from downtown. Quiet location and lots of street parking with very few restrictions. Be prepared to walk a bit or drive downtown, but the cottage is a wonderful place to stay!
Rick was very accommodating and the cottage is just wonderful. The rooms are impeccable and Rick goes the extra mile to make your stay great (good tea and coffee, maps of the area etc.) Would definitely come back!
