If you're like most and prefer your meals to feature grill marks and smokey goodness, these eight vacation rental homes in Savannah need to be on your radar. With killer outdoor spaces and top-of-the-line grilling equipment, you're sure to love these Lucky Savannah favorites built for the grillmaster.
Local Recommendation: Grab everything you need for the grill at local provisions shop Smith Brothers Butcher Shop. They offer a wide selection of quality meats, cheese, wine, and craft beer - and can even put together a gift basket or wine & cheese plate to really elevate your stay.
