2BR/1BA Cottage 333 (748967)
Savannah, Georgia, United States 31401
A beautifully maintained, well-located, precious piece of history! This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage is on the Eastern border of the Landmark Historic District of Savannah. It is walking distance to anything downtown and has been recently renovated. The owners want to spoil their guests and are installing a dipping pool in the rear courtyard that will cool you off in summer and be heated in cool weather. The pool will be finished by October 2015. In the meantime, enjoy low introductory rates on this little gem during September, while the pool is still being installed!
To stay in this cottage is to step back into Savannah's distant past, which there seems perhaps not so distant after all. This cottage is located in a charming neighborhood within the one square mile Historic District, where you will find what locals refer to as "Beach cottages." While the actual beach at Tybee Island is 17 miles away, these adorable cottages are so called for their proximity to the "Beach Institute," a school built in 1867 for the education of newly freed slaves by the Freedmen’s Bureau of the American Missionary Association. The school was named for New Yorker Alfred S. Beach, editor of the Scientific American, who donated funds to purchase the site. Primarily staffed by white female teachers from the North, the Institute closed in 1919. In its place is now an African-American Cultural Museum and tourist landmark of downtown Savannah.
Many of the much-adored Beach cottages actually date back to a time before the Beach Institute. They were built in the mid 1800's to house the working class of railroad laborers and craftsman that created the proud structures of historic Savannah and ushered in the greater urbanity of the 20th Century. From it can be seen East Broad Elementary School, which was once a bustling railroad depot and main artery of the city's vibrant commerce. Indeed, you will find the original masonry of a brick flue in the front bedroom which ushered over 150 years of coal smoke from the cottage out over the depot. The topsy-turvey floors speak to the antiquity of the structure, and it's no-nonsense floorplan to its hardscrabble heritage.
The cottages were nearly destroyed on several occasions, but were thankfully saved and renovated, one by one, as residents recognized their beauty and place in our city's history. Many of them are now vacation rentals since their small size lends itself well to travelers.

The perfect place to stay. We loved everything about this charming cottage. From the moment we opened the front door we felt at home. Right in the heart of the Victorian district of Savannah, within walking distance of everything from Forsyth Park to River Street. We had one small incident, the shower head, and it was promptly taken care of. We will be returning to Savannah and we will definitely be returning to 333 E. Broad St. Thank you for making Spring break 2017 a memory to never forget.
We had a wonderful one week stay in Savannah. Our stay in this cozy, charming cottage was very comfortable and peaceful. Perfect size for our party of 3.. All essential amenities were provided. We were in walking distance of just about everything. Loved the personal heated pool. Quiet neighborhood! Would highly recommend.
We were 2 adult couples so the sleeping arrangements were great but the rest of the living space was rather small. We usually like sitting around in the evening just visiting, living space was a little small for this with really only enough comfortable seating for three. We were able to walk everywhere although some areas were a little far for older folks. The house was clean and welcoming. We did use the pool and found this to be a nice addition to the stay. Absolutely love Savannah and will be back.
This property has the charming ambience of a bed and breakfast with the amenities of a full-service hotel. Guests are offered a complimentary bottle of wine during their stay, and there is a glass jar of candy on top of the microwave. There was an ample supply of toilet paper, and we were able to return home with a suitcase of clean clothes after doing a couple loads of laundry using the state-of-the-art washer and dryer and the detergent provided underneath the sink. Bath towels were included with the linens, and had we encountered rain, the umbrellas resting in a basket in the hallway would have kept us dry. Offering a solid night's rest, the king-size beds are flanked by nightstands and reading lamps. We rented a car and parked on the street outside the unit for the duration of our stay; we mostly walked to sites and restaurants, but when we did use the car, there was always a space out front when we returned. Our stay here made our trip to Savannah comfortable and convenient, and we recommend the property to prospective travelers!
Me and my wife stayed here 12-1-16-12-4-16 and it was great. The house was as the pictures appeared. It's small but as long as your not planning on staying in the whole time your here it's plenty big enough. After walking over 5 miles the first day it was nice to get in the heated pool and soak. The only bad experience we had was the first night the timer for the pool went off early so the water was cold but I emailed Mary that night and it was fixed the next morning. I would recommend this house and would stay here again. The location was not far from everything at all. Also there are umbrellas to use and they provide a free bottle of wine. The beds were some of the best we have slept on. They also provide plenty of dish, laundry soap, towels, toilet paper, and coffee. One downfall is if someone is staying in the house next to you and are loud it is very easy to here.
Look no further! We had a wonderful time at the cottage in September. The location is close to restaurants, attractions and the waterfront. We toured the Mercer House, ate at The Olde Pink House and drove out to Tybee Island to name just a few of our activities. The cottage, itself, is fully equipped and has everything you will need... plus! The photos are exactly what you will see and the bottle of wine was such a welcoming touch. We would return again in a heart beat and pray for the safety of all during Hurricane Matthew!
My husband and I and another couple stayed here the week before labor day. This is a very cute cottage. It is a little smaller than expected but honestly we really weren't their to sit inside, so it was perfect for us. Working with Mary was awesome and she even checked on us when the storm came through on Friday. I would definitely stay here again or maybe even check out the cottage connected to this one. For me I liked theit back layout better but to have the little plunge pool was great. Especially after a long day. It is a short walk Butcher Shop. We did an East Side foody tour and they were all walking distance from the house. Even though there was a school across the street we didn't have any problems.
This cottage turned out to be perfect for us and another couple we were meeting in Savannah. We were worried at first because of the storms coming off of hurricane Hermine, but it turned out to be a wonderfully sunny weekend. It is centrally located on the back side of town half way between all there is to do on the River Walk and the other side of town at Forsyth Park . And just a few blocks walking distance from the Catholic Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist towards the center of town. We really enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates so generously provided by the owners. The sitting pool made for a very relaxing end to our days each evening after we completed our sightseeing of Savannah. And the King size beds were very comfortable and made for a good night sleep. If we ever get to come back we would love to stay here again. - William & Sharron Queen
We loved our stay in this lovely cottage. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice for our Savannah visit. I wish I was enjoying my morning coffee in the courtyard overlooking the pool right now. The cottage was equipped with everything you might need to feel at home down to the smallest detail, it was clean, wifi was fast, washer and dryer were so convenient, and we thoroughly enjoyed our complimentary bottle of wine. The location is perfect for exploring downtown Savannah by foot, and a cool dip in the pool after a walking tour can't be beat! We will definitely stay here again next time we're in town.
Loved the cottage, loved the butcher shop around the corner, loved the location, everything was within walking distance and when we drove there are public garages(you have to pay) but worth it in the summer! I give this a 5 star, clean, supplied all the amenities, towels, washer/dryer, fridge, ice machine, oven, microwave, towels, linens, attentive and quick response to our questions and to top it off we had our very own pool that we didn't have to share!
This cottage is nicely cared for, and we enjoyed our stay. It's small, but includes everything you might need. The pool/spa was lovely and heated up quickly. The cottage was nicely stocked with kitchen/bath essentials such as toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc. It's located on a somewhat busy street across from an elementary school. School was not in session, but there was construction nearby that woke us up every morning around 8am. The walls are thin, so you can also hear lawn maintenance/people talking on the sidewalk, which often disrupted our sleep. I would recommend this cottage to couples, but suggest that you sleep in the second bedroom (away from the street). Mary was very helpful and responded quickly to questions. If you like German food, try the Bier Haus. It's a quarter mile walk, and the food was excellent.
Our stay at the cottage was absolutely wonderful! The house was very clean and nicely decorated. It is located on the edge of the historic district, but still in walking distance to Forsyth Park, Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, River Street, etc. We only used the car once when we drove over to Tybee Island for the afternoon(highly recommend). The dipping pool was a very nice feature. It was extremely clean, and we enjoyed relaxing in it each evening. I am ready to come back to Savannah already! I truly miss this adorable and quaint cottage!
This spot is in Savannah's historic district but on the outskirts so you are far enough for a little piece and quiet. The property is small be has everything you need. This dipping pool adds a nice touch but when we wanted to use it, it was not functioning correctly. Other than that we enjoyed our stay at this property.
My friend and I recently stayed at this charming cottage. This was one of the least expensive properties we looked at and we were a little unsure. But we took a chance and are so glad that we did! The cottage was small but adorable. There were no issues with the reservation or property. It was on the very edge of town, but still within walking distance of most things. And it made for quieter nights! The dipping pool was larger than expected, when sitting on one of the lower benches the water was shoulder level. Very enjoyable after a hot day of walking! If I could make any suggestions it would be to simply update a few things. Although perfectly okay, with a little effort, the pool area could be super cute! The little table next to the pool had definitely seen better days. And the door handle on the bathroom could be replaced. (I thought I might be locked in a few times.) But honestly, it was an awesome value for the price. It was our first visit to Savannah and I would love to return. If that ever happens, I would have no issues with staying at this sweet little cottage again! When visiting Savannah - a Bonaventure Cemetery tour is a MUST! But make sure you book your tour through Shannon Scott. He was unbelievably knowledgeable. Such a great storyteller. Love love loved it!! And you have to plan a visit to the 1st African American Church. It was a highlight of the trip for sure! And eat at Zunzi's! It's a South African place on York street. So Good!!
The unit is perfect for 3-4 guests, very clean, well stocked, super comfortable beds and a great patio area with an amazing heated pool. The unit is in a good overall location convenient to the Historic District of Savannah, however the street is pretty busy with cars and faces a school. Since the unit is so close to the street it is not uncommon to hear passerby's talking into the late evenings.
We had a wonderful stay in the Cottage. The house was perfect for four people and nicely updates. One great features was both bedrooms had King size beds and extremely comfortable mattresses. This vacation was our first trip without our children and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house in on the edge of the historic district but still able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go in Savannah. The pool was clean and a wonderful added feature to relax at the end of the day. I would definitely stay at this house again.
This is a old historic home with all the charm and quirks that come with it. The floors creak, wave a little and the walls are thin but it's just part of the charm. It's very clean and updated where you need it (kitchen and bath). The rooms are warm and inviting. The beds are very realy comfey. There is plenty of room to put your stuff away in the closets. The furnishing are very clean ,nice and comfortable. You are close enough to walk to resturants and any thing you may want to see in old Savannah . And if it starts raining uber cabs are minuets away. This is a great place to enjoy the history and beauty of the south. The dipping pool wouldn't heat up enough for this old lady to enjoy. I'm not sure if it was operator error or just to chilly to get the temp up past 85. I wouldn't hesate to recommend this home to friends and family.
We really enjoyed our stay in this unique and awesome cottage. The beds were extremely comfortable, the cottage was well-equipped, and it was warm, charming and inviting. We especially enjoyed the pool in the back that turned into a hot tub. The excellent location allowed us to tour a lot of historic Savannah and enjoy all the many restaurants that were close by. A very good value for the price.
As a full family, we rented both sides of the beautiful duplex on East Broad Street. It was simply the perfect set up for us! For a winter rental, the heated pool at 333 was an excellent advantage. This was enjoyed with many smiles. This cozy and happy duplex was a lovely short walk away from the beautiful lush squares of historic Savannah. What a delight being here. If we had a concern or question, the response time was pronominal from Mary. Her team truly made an effort to make our trip comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely time greeting family, friends, and simply making amazing memories. Thankful.
This is a great place in a really convenient location. Parking was super easy. The way the cottage was restored was killer. It's so cute. There are so many great little touches that make it feel like home. The heated soaking pool in the back is a very nice way to wind down the day. Mary, the property manager, is very easy to get in touch with...great communication. We couldn't be happier. One bit of advice, and this is to anyone staying in a historic building in Savannah, bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. The walls are thin in all of these old buildings. There's a school across the street from this one, so during the weekdays its going to be a bit noisy in the morning.
loved our stay
We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage! It was clean, comfortable and such a short walk from everything Savannah has to offer. Mary is such a friendly, attentive and informative host. She responded promptly to all of our correspondence leading up to, during, and following our stay. I would absolutely recommend the cottage to anyone looking to visit Savannah
What an amazing, warm, cozy place right in the midst of Savannah. This little cottage has the old style charm of Savannah in the way of its original floors and its colonial style feel with the modern amenities that make this place the perfect weekend getaway. So close to everything in town and perfectly situated within a nice quiet neighborhood in Savannah this place is just a hidden treasure in an amazing old southern city
This was my first trip to Savannah and my experience was amazing. It started with this perfect historic cottage. The feel of the place is so cozy and welcoming. From the combination of the beautiful original hardwood floors to the modern kitchen and amenities. It had anything you could think of needing in the kitchen. It's located close to everything in town and there's a great charcuterie right around the corner. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants both a historic and modern feel in one location.
This was great for me, my husband and my in-laws. This was the oldest house we have ever slept in. We thought it might seem too old but on the contrary it seemed pretty much all new! You could see the character in the flooring but was redone too. Everything was extremely clean. The AC worked great. We walked everywhere from here! We only used the car to visit Tybee Island one afternoon.
