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.

Reviewer Comments:

Stayed here for our anniversary. Property and location were both spectacular. And the food at Mrs. far, the best in town!! I had arranged for a charcuterie board from Smith Brothers to be waiting for us upon arrival - it was excellent! Just what we needed after our travel. The house was very private and within walking distance to everything in downtown. Not to mention, located on the most beautiful street in America! We will be back!!

Reviewer Comments:

These accommodations are tremendous. Imagine staying in the very place that Mrs. Wilkes lived, and also receiving a free meal at her historic restaurant besides (if you book an appropriate length of stay to qualify). Here you are in the heart of a historic area, with plenty of room to spread out and relax at night after touring the city during the day. Plus the laundry in your unit is so convenient. I highly recommend it!

We enjoyed our stay at Wilkes house. It wast very spacious and on a charming street. The air condition did not work well. We sent a message about the air on our first night, but never heard back.

Reviewer Comments:

Once we were in the rental, everything was fine. But the process was BIZARRE. First, I started calling Saturday evening. The recorded message said Lucky Savannah is open 7 days a week from 9-5. So Sunday, I called at 9:00 and 9:30, leaving a message. No return phone call was received. So we went by the office. The door was unlocked but no one was around despite a purse, keys, cell phone, several checks and personal information laying in plain sight. I found an emergency phone number on a chalkboard, so I called and explained I wanted to rent Wilkes House. After many phone calls, I was told to reserve on line. The property was great, but the rental process was a nightmare!

Owner's Response: Hi Gina! Thank you for staying at Wilkes House. We're sorry to hear about the miscommunication. Our office is closed on Sundays but is shared with another business which operates on a separate schedule. We apologize for the misinformation again and so wish you'll allow us the opportunity to take you through our typical rental process next time you're in town!
