The title of this review states it all! From the moment of arrival to that disappointing last step out of the door to return home, Laura's Cottage was like a big hug. The owners of this property see to it that you have everything that you need for a relaxing stay. Muffins, Orange Juice, Yogurt, Coffee etc. The cottage in itself is unique. You can enjoy the throw back to the early 1800's while enjoying today's comfort. You realize how special of a place this is when the tour buses and horse drawn carriages slow down to point the cottage out to the touring visitors. It is really cool when you are on a tour and it stops to point out the cottage that you are staying in. Of course you will let it be known to the others on the tour that you are staying there. Within walking distance of just about everything, who can complain. Park the car and you may not need to drive for the entire duration of your stay. Get ready to put on a few pounds...Leopold's Ice Cream is directly around the corner. Highly suggest the Old Fashion Tutti-Fruity. Unfortunately we found that the highly sought after restaurants such as, "Mrs. Wilkes" and Paula Dean's Restaurant to be very disappointing. The fame along with the catering to the masses has taken it's toll on the quality of food as well as the excitement of the visit. Seek out "The Pink House". They are not taking advantage of the tourists, the quality of food and service remains top notch.
To reiterate, if you are seeking relaxation, warmth and comfort, Laura's Cottage will not disappoint. We did not encounter any strange occurrences, no change left on the porch and no flickering lights. Although, we took a moment to introduced ourself to Laura to help head off possible hauntings. "enjoy!"

We booked Laura's cottage for our anniversary after staying there on our honeymoon five years earlier. Absolutely love it! The cottage is perfect and suited us to a "T". The location made it convenient to walk everywhere we went.
The cottage was well stocked with everything we needed.
We will definitely stay here again. Hopefully, we won't have to wait another 5 years!
We had a wonderful stay at Laura's Cottage.

My husband and I stayed in Laura's cottage during our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful cottage-- it's unlike any other place we've stayed, and it's in the most charming location. We spent our days walking to shops and restaurants and exploring the historic district and scad. Highly recommended!

My husband and I spent 10 days in Savannah retreating from our busy lives. This was perfect. A great location and attentive landlords. Everything we needed for our vacation located walking distance from the waterfront or the Music Festival.

A Real Piece of Savannah History
Left on 07/16/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Susan and Maxine
My mom and I drove from Houston, Texas to Savannah rather on a whim. Having stayed in a 'home' on previous trips, we decided to forgo the traditional hotel and stay here. We could not have enjoyed it more. The house was the perfect blend of history--literally and creature comforts. The location allowed us to walk nearly everywhere, even in the heat, which gave us a real feel for the historic district. Savannah is a fabulous town and this house is part of that. We couldn't have asked for a place to make us feel more at home than the cottage.
unique and thoroughly enjoyable

Lauras Cottage was a unique and very enjoyable place to stay. Vicki, the owner was very hospitable and visited us shortly after our arrival. Se really cares about providing a pleasant stay. Even though we never met the ghost, we would definitely stay there again. We recommend others to stay at this 200 year old cottage.

My friends and I loved Laura's Cottage! The location is wonderful and we liked the off-street parking. Didn't have any 'paranormal' experiences...guess we were glad! We did enjoy the nightly ghost tour patrons outside. Everything about the cottage was great, but it would have been nice to have a t.v. downstairs. As it was, we didn't watch t.v. that much--too many other great things in Savannah. We would definitely go back.
a must-stay in Savannah

Laura's Cottage is the perfect hideaway for a visit to Savannah -- right in the middle of the historic downtown district and in walking distance of pretty much everything. We rented the cottage in part due to it's haunted reputation and we weren't dissapointed. We had a few "unusual" experiences, although nothing too frightening. Just enough to keep things interesting. When I got back home and uploaded my pictures of the interior of the cottage, I was amazed to find two photos of the loft containing ghostly orbs. One distinct white circular orb above the chair on the right of the loft wall and another with a neon "apostrophe" in the corner with the TV. That particular corner of the loft was also very noisy at night -- repetitive knocking, soft creakings. All in all, a great experience and a place I'd recommend to anyone visiting Savannah!!
perfect spot in the middle of everything

This home was fabulous looks like nothing from the outside but wonderful inside and yes we believe it was haunted. The smell on our first morning was really bad only lasted about 1hr but we read in the guest that other people also had the same experience. I also felt a poke when I was in the shower I thought it was my friend but she was outside. I belive it was all very friendly and I would stay there again as it was clean and beautiful.

This trip to Savannah was part of my daughter's college graduation present. We stayed at Laura's Cottage because we read it was haunted. We didn't provke any "spooks" but had a great time. We did sleep with one eye open the first night. It was delightful. And we highly recommend it to anyone looking for something different. It was money well spent.
Great for Romantic Getaway!

This place was awesome! My fiance and I like to pick places that are different and this place is just that! Great location and an easy walk to restaurants and shops. We stayed here during the Christmas holiday and decorated the place with a fake tree. We actually got engaged during our stay here, so we will always hold this place dear to our hearts!
Convenient and charming
Left on 03/17/2009 for a stay in February 2009 | zeezonker
This was a charming home built in 1791. It was convenient for walking the historic area of Savannah. The kitchen had all the supplies needed for our month's stay. However, a very small dining table, no comfortable chairs or TV downstairs forced us to live upstairs. We did so by moving 2 chairs and a side table. The TV did have cable, but basic news channels like CNN, Headline News, or MSNBC were unavailable. We were comfortable but felt for the cost of our month's stay we did lack amenities.

Laura's Lovely Cottage

Laura's Cottage is the best location, to experience Savannah for a week. It was a perfect space for two.
The Tours around the Historic District were educational and fun. The museums are all very close by. Great food, great window shopping along the River & City market, a short walk away. Nitelife was good times. Southern Hospitality was abundant.
Bridgette and I wish ourselves back to Laura's cottage frequently. I'm certain, one day we will return to rent it again.

FANTASTIC SAVANNAH RENTAL PROPERTY
Left on 09/01/2008 for a stay in August 2008 | Diane
We rented this cottage through Savannah Getaways and were extremely impressed! I thought due to the historic district and age of the property, it wouldn't be quite as modern as it was. It exceeded all our expectatons in every way. The bed, TV w/ VCR, plush bathroom rugs & towels, fully equipped kitchen, were better than I've had at most hotels! And the antiques, reading material, and game made it a very memorable trip indeed.
Location was perfect & I'd highly recommend this rental to anyone vacationing in Savannah.
Most sincerely, Diane Yancey,

i was a little worried to plan a trip since my wife always does the planning, but savannah was top on her list of places to visit, and i wanted to keep this one a secret, so i had to do my own research, and after many hours i choose this haunted house, the location in savannah was awesome, we arent big on all the night life so being a couple of blocks away from that was perfect, the haunted tours came by a lot, but never bothered us, and was kind of cool, i thought about playing some ghost tricks but decided not to, the accomadtions were awesome
Quaint rustic cottage in Savannah Ga
Left on 07/21/2008 for a stay in June 2008 | Lisa Maempel
What a wonderful getaway my husband and I had at this rustic and beautifully furnished cottage. When you walked through the door it was as if you stepped back in time. It was beautifully furnished with lovely antiques but still had all the comforts of home. All this was within walking distance of some of the most exquisite restaurants that Savannah had to offer. I would definitly recommend this residence if your looking for a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of your everyday lives. It truely was a vacation we will not forget.
