Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Built toward the end of the 19th century, this one-bedroom, one and one half-bath property is as rich in history as it is charm. Once the home of Mrs. Wilkes, proprietress of the famous Boarding House and still-operational Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, this parlor-level condo offers a unique stay for up to four Lucky guests. Wake up every morning to beautiful Jones Street, where cobblestones and ancient oak trees dripping in spanish moss compelled Southern Living Magazine to name it the “Prettiest Street in America.”

The original hardwood floors and 12’ ceilings and tasteful interior decor make this home-away-from-home warm and inviting. The large living area has a flat screen TV and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. Three ornamental marble hearths throughout the home are complemented by fine antiques and elegant furnishings. Pocket doors separate the parlor from the dining room, which has seating for four. The galley-style kitchen is fully equipped with all you’ll need for a weekend getaway or extended stay. The large, elegant bedroom has a king-sized bed with soft, luxurious bedding.

The Wilkes House is an ideal location to call home while exploring the varied sights and activities around the Historic District. Located in the middle of our bustling Design District, stylish shops dot the streets among several historic homes open for touring, including the Mercer Williams House and the childhood home of Flannery O’Connor. With a three night or longer say, you’ll receive one free lunch for two at Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room, where you’ll dine like a local and feel like family!

Why Lucky Savannah Loves this Property:

- Take a leisurely morning stroll through nearby Forsyth Park, Savannah’s largest green space and a popular location for weddings and festivals.

- A small patio in the back is the perfect spot to enjoy a fine Savannah morning and cup of coffee.

- This home has a washer and dryer for added convenience.

Sleeping Configuration:

Bedroom 1: King Bed

Living Room: Queen Sleeper Sofa

*Guests receive one free lunch for two with every three-night booking. Please contact the Mrs. Wilkes Restaurant directly regarding seasonal hours.

Reviewer Comments:

We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing space, the perfect location, the historical significance, the beauty, and the functionality of the home. It was perfect for a romantic week celebrating our anniversary. The complimentary lunch at Mrs. Wilkes was a great perk. I would advise guests to bring a hanging toiletry bag for the bathroom as there is little space with the pedestal sink. Having the extra powder room really made the mornings go smoothly. The bed was very comfortable. It was convenient to have the washer/dryer and complete kitchen for our week long stay. Property manager was great when we needed help setting the a/c. The property was so welcoming that after each long day of exploring, we felt we were "coming home".

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay at Mrs. Wilkes' one bedroom apt. made our trip to Savannah special. After reading about its days as a boarding house, sleeping in a room that held a wedding in the early 1900's and being above Mrs. Wilkes restaurant, we felt lucky to be a part of the Wilkes' House history. We loved the fireplaces and other architectural details, and the extra bathroom was a bonus. The free shuttle service to the river and city market is just a block away. The neighborhood is beautiful and historical, and easy to explore on foot. We're glad we took advantage of the lunch at the restaurant. Not only because of the good southern cooking, but because of the large helping of southern hospitality when we met Marcia and some nice people at our table!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay in Mrs. Wilkes home. The apartment was very clean and furnished with beautiful antiques. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The location was very good. We enjoyed breakfast at Clary's in the morning and the bar and grill nearby for dinner (both within walking distance). Of course the food in the dining room was outstanding and the hospitality great. The only slight concern we had was the noise from the workers in the dining room right below after the dining room closed for the day. Very unnecessary yelling each day. Hard to relax in the afternoons. Very loud. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will recommend to our friends.

Reviewer Comments:

The apartment is very large, three very large rooms and a modest kitchen. The bathrooms are small but ok. It has a dark feel due to limited natural lighting and being decorated in the general idea of maybe a century ago, but not quite. The photos show different furniture than what we actually had. For example, there was no robin’s egg blue sofa, only a drab brown one in its place. The lack of brighter colorsfelt gloomy, but is consistent with the era. The bed was ok. The location for us was good, quieter street but within walking distance for most of our needs. An unexpected nice perk was eating in the restaurant on the first floor. Much better than expected for s family style restaurant. Staff was so friendly.

Reviewer Comments:

Apt was great. Location was fantastic. Rooms were large. High ceilings, great furnishings. The 1 1/2 bath was perfect for 3 people. Minor hiccup with the bldg key, but that was handled promptly by mgmt. No key in the key lock on the bldg front door, but for some reason the door wasn't locked when we got there so no problem. There was an electronic lock on the door to the apt which was easy to use. Mgmt brought a key for the bldg front door for later use as the door was locked during the rest of our stay. My only caution would be that if you are a light sleeper, the noise in the restaurant below could bother you in the morning as well as the line out front. There are stairs up to the front door and a narrow hallway in the apt, so if a person needs assistance with a wheelchair or walker, this wouldn't work. Otherwise I would recommend the rental and if I go back, I would certainly stay there again.

This apartment was spacious and beautiful. It brought us back in time as we could almost envision the people from the 1900’s living there! The house is very close to everything and on a beautiful block! Lunch downstairs at the Wilkes house was a special treat! We will be back!
