Located in the north east corner of the historic district, Greene Square reflects the quiet elements of Savannah while only a short stroll to all that the downtown has to offer and it's wonderful squares. This recently renovated circa 1880 "Gingerbread" cottage features sun- filled rooms with original heart pine floors; and an intimate garden patio to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The main entrance is above street level and overlooks the beautiful square.<br><br>
The front porch is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or evening refreshment as you view the passersby. The front door opens to a cozy foyer and staircase leading up to two bedrooms. The foyer and upstairs master bedroom both include a wonderful nook with a window seat to enjoy a good book.<br><br>
The open and wide living and dining rooms provide the perfect place to listen to music; watch TV or enjoy your favorite movie. Two decorative fireplaces, original to the house add a cozy touch. Just off these rooms is the fully equipped kitchen that opens to the enclosed private walled patio. If you are fortunate enough to be there in spring, the smell of jasmine that climbs the walls is intoxicating.<br><br>
The large master bedroom has a queen size bed with down comforter and cozy seating area. The adjacent second bedroom features a double bed with down comforter and a custom headboard from an antique mantel.<br><br>
The main upstairs bath has a full claw foot tub with shower for luxurious soaks after enjoying the sights of Savannah or one of the wonderful restaurants.<br><br>
Ample unrestricted parking is right out front and around the square on the well-lit streets. No smoking allowed.<br><br>

This lovely as this cottage seemed in the photos it was so much better in person. As nice as the photos were they just could not do it justice. It was made even better by the fact that the owner and I obviously have the same decorating taste and love of old homes. Exquisitely decorated but so that you felt immediately comfortable.
My daughter and I were in Savannah to celebrate my birthday and both agreed we could not have made a better choice than this wonderful cottage. The cottage and the location were perfect and even the weather cooperated making for a wonderful birthday celebration!

We loved our time at the Gingerbread Cottage. The house was perfect for two couples. We were able to walk every where and enjoyed afternoon cocktails on the front porch watching the square. I hope we can rent this home again when we visit in the future. A true gem.

The house is a dream. It is clean and so beautifully decorated. It could easily be written up in any Decorating magazine. I found myself taking photos of little vignettes and arrangements on table tops and walls. You are in the heart of the city facing a beautiful park. Although there is no off street parking we always found a spot to park either in front of the house or on a side street (we were there in February). The cottage is two story and the bedrooms are both up. I would definitely return to this same little house - it is a joy!

The cottage is in a perfect location for Historic Savannah. It's a 5 minute walk to the River and everywhere else you go. We parked the car and it only moved once the whole week that we were there. The location is quiet, the cottage is great and I would rent it again without a doubt. The price is a little higher than I would have liked to spend but all in all it was worth it.

This wonderful house is cozy but spacious. We were there when the jasmine was inbllom in the courtyard and we wathched the mockingbird tend her nest with our coffee in the morning. I curled up with a book one late afternoon on the window seat in the foyer after a delightful morning of walking through the city then stopping for lunch at Vic's on the water. Sunday morning we sat on the proch on watched people arrive for church in their wonderful suits and hats and exchanged pleasentries. Agreat place, relaxing and convenient. Thank you for a memorable getaway.

Great location, close walking distant to everything. Loved the cottage feel as soon as we walked in. Had everything we needed. The front porch and back courtyard was the perfect place to enjoy the morning and evenings.
Definitly recommend this place.
One down fall is the double bed. Not good for someone tall.
