This circa 1790 - 1810 Historic Washington Square House is an 'Award Winning' Historic Restoration. After setting vacant since 1992, miraculously retained the vast majority of its original details! The original stair case, heart pine floors, all doors and hardware, windows, bead board wainscoting, fireplaces and mantles, etc, etc.

The painstaking restoration was conducted by stringent guidelines laid out by the Department of Natural Resource in Washington D.C. These guidelines were followed in order to save the historic integrity of the home and its significant contribution to Savannah’s Landmark Historic District.

The Carriage House is a free standing cottage behind the main house with its own private entrance off the lane. It is located on the 2nd floor over the garage. Like all carriage houses in Savannah, the carriage house is where the driver lived in the 1800s above the horses and carriages they cared for.

"Great stay for eight in beautiful home!
Birthday and family reunion for eight was even better with this great home and carriage house as well.
There is a sweet courtyard between the too.
The home is in a great location - walking distance to the river, shops, museums.
All four bedrooms in the main home had it's own bathroom. Some with jets and an awesome shower. The carriage home had two bedrooms and two bathrooms with jetted tubs.
We found what we needed in the kitchen and enjoyed two meals in the dining room.
It would be even better with a comfortable, functional couch in the living room.
But we all loved the home and would stay again."

"Made for a great Savannah experience!
We rented the main house and carriage house for destination wedding. The house was beautifully appointed and more than spacious. It is within walking distance to everything; River street just 2 blocks away! The little touches are done so very right- very nice bedding and towels, washers and dryers, kitchen with everything you need. We really enjoyed the history of the house.
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us."

"Beautiful, but could be more comfortable.
Our family group,of 11 adults enjoyed our stay in the Washington Square House and Carriage House for 4 nights in April. The house and the carriage house are located in a quiet area that is within walking distance of many restaurants and River Street. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, but the period furniture in the living room, dining room, and sun room is uncomfortable to sit on. We would have preferred more comfortable, less decorative furniture.


-Spacious bedrooms in the main house with comfortable beds.
- generous supply of toilet paper, soap, and paper towels
- Wonderfully well equipped kitchen with many dishes, cups, a variety of glassware, baking dishes, pots and pans and cooking utensils.
- Air conditioning and WiFi both worked very well
- property manager is easy to contact and very helpful

- First floor bedroom does not have a shower— just a claw foot tub
- The second floor bedrooms in the main house are spacious, but the pedestal sinks and tiny vanities do not have sufficient space for your toiletries. The bathrooms all need shelves for toiletries.
The bedrooms only have one suitcase stand per room, which leaves only the single chair of floor for second one.

Note: Be sure to check the parking signs for the times of the middle of the night street sweeping so that you don’t get a ticket. One sign is obscured by trees.

"Definitely Luxury Living
We loved staying here! The location was within a pleasant walk to the historic district, but not in a busy congested area. Every room was decorated in a tasteful vintage design, so that it felt like we were back in time, except for the luxury bathrooms and kitchen, which were clean and modern. It was the best of both worlds! We loved the big round table where all 11 of us could sit, eat, play games and talk. Would definitely stay here again and recommend without reservation. "

"Bachelorette Weekend!
Our stay was pretty much amazing! The house was wonderful and the owner was extremely helpful whenever I called with a question! Overall, this was a perfect location and a great place to stay. The only downfall was that we wanted to sit outside at night and the neighbors did not like that. They made a comment to us to keep it down at night. "
