Overlooking the live oaks on Chatham Square, The Canterbury is a stunning home, comfortably suited for up to six Lucky guests, with three bedrooms and one and one-half baths. If your idea of a perfect getaway is to steep yourself in the elegant indulgences of the South, then you’ve found the best possible home away from home, in the heart of downtown Savannah.
The character of this 1853 home lies in its soaring 12-foot ceilings, wood beams, exposed brick walls, original ornamental hearths, and the striking antique furnishings. A fully outfitted kitchen with adjacent dining area has every appliance you’ll need to feed the group gathered in the spacious, attached seating overlooking the home’s star attraction, the sprawling courtyard. Even when you’re enjoying Savannah from the comfort and privacy of home, the banana trees, rosebushes, and Old Savannah Grey Brick will let you know you’re in the South!
Behind original pocket doors you’ll find a tastefully appointed living room with plenty of seating and a flat screen TV. The parlor level has one half bath, and the full bath upstairs houses a washer/dryer for your convenience. The sophisticated décor extends to the upstairs, which has two queen-size bedrooms, one with a TV. The third bedroom tucked in the corner has a full-size bed for one truly Lucky guest, who will feel like they’re laying high up in the majestic oak tree that is just outside the room’s windows.
When you’re ready to venture out, you have two private parking spots to leave your cars safely behind. The best shopping, dining and nightlife in Savannah is all within walking distance; historic Forsyth Park is two minutes away, you can grab a burger at the nearby Crystal Beer Parlor or taste some real Southern cooking at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House, and if you’re in the mood to shop, try the Downtown Design District has tons to explore.

“Canterbury House absolutely beautiful and great for graduation w”

This house is located on one of the beautiful squares (Chatham) in Savannah and is an absolutely beautiful home. We rented the main house and downstairs apartment to accommodate all of our family that was coming for my daughter's college graduation. We had a dinner party that evening and this house was great for all of our guests.
When we arrived on Thursday night the lights were on in the living room area and Christmas tree lit up in dining area added a lovely touch. Location is wonderful we were able to walk to dinner, to the park and some of the other squares. Some of my girlfriends and I will be planning a girl's trip next year and would love to rent the Canterbury House again; enjoyed this home and weekend.
I would recommend this house for a family or friends get together that wants to get away for a fun trip to Savannah.

An absolutely lovely and charming home with 3 bedrooms...one tiny but sufficient. Everything in beautiful condition. Yard area lovely for cocktail hour. Owner very accessible and responsive to questions.
Looked our on a square with lots of trees and ambiance. Would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I recently stayed in the Canterbury Main House. We loved it! The location was great, close to Forsyth Park, The Crystal Beer Parlor (must go!), and so much more. We enjoyed the private courtyard/patio for wine with friends, privacy, and security (we kept our bikes there). I can't wait to visit again soon!

Savannah is a secret getaway for my wife and I. We wanted to share our secret with a few friends. The Canterbury Main House was just what we needed to have a great time. The location is excellent. The home is very nice. We grilled out in the courtyard. I highly recommend the Canterbury Main House if you have a group of 4 to 6 people.
