Among the most elaborate architecture in Savannah is The Gingerbread House – always a “must see” highlight of a guided tour of the Historic District Savannah. The Gingerbread House, also known as the Asendorf House, is 108 years old and yet still bears resemblance to the original architecture of the original three-story southern mansion, built in 1899. The owner, Cord Asendorf is buried in Savannah’s famous Bonaventure Cemetery. The features of The Gingerbread House are unmistakable and stand out as a fully designed home in the Gingerbread style, prevalent in the Black Forest region of Germany.

You'll have an unbeatable experience at the Gingerbread House, as this home is truly unlike any other in Savannah. Plan your curated stay, and leave with memories that will last a lifetime. After undergoing major renovations, this second floor apartment boasts with high end finishes and modern yet sophisticated furnishings. The original historic details of this 100+ year old home have been handsomely restored, such as the original heart pine wood flooring, mantles, and moldings. Each room will leave you in awe as no detail has been sparred.

After entering through a double set of wood doors, you'll step directly into the heart of the home. This space is fitted with tasteful furnishings, dramatic tall ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows that flood the space with natural light - you'll never want to leave! Adjacent, the eclectic formal dining room is the perfect intimate space to enjoy a home cooked or catered meal. Just beyond, the impressive chefs kitchen features two large islands, stainless steel appliances, and plenty of prep space for the chef of the group. Off of the kitchen, guests will find a dual set of glass doors that lead into the courtyard, where everyone can gather together for an evening glass of wine around the fire pit.

Upstairs, the dramatic tall ceilings continue, and you'll find another vibrant gathering room that features comfortable, modern and sophisticated furnishings for your party to relax. The abstract artwork compliments the bright walls, while creating an inviting yet fun environment. Just across the hall, you'll find a contemporary wet bar, stocked with everything you'll need to prepare handcrafted cocktails, coffee, and more. Enjoy your favorite drinks together, with a take-out meal at the dedicated dining space, that overlooks the grand ball room below.

At the front of the home, overlooking Bull Street, the first bedroom offers bright crushed velvet Queen size beds. Tastefully styled with custom drapery, a plush rug, and an ample amount of seating, your guests will be envious of those staying here. While the second bedroom can be accessed from this room, it can be closed off and accessed from the hallway as well. This room features a Scandinavian design with rich accents from the amber drapery, custom painted ceiling, and eclectic artwork. At the back of the home, the whimsical primary suite offers a King size bed, delicate finishes, with an ensuite bathroom and a vanity room.

Take a stroll beneath the live oak trees covered in Spanish moss, while you head over to Savannah's famous coffee shop, Foxy Loxy. Grab a coffee and treat to go, while you explore the Starland District, and Forsyth Park. Hop on a nearby trolly stop and head toward the bustling city district, where you'll find the nightlife and fine dining.

It’s really nice but I think over priced for just a weekend stay

Lovely spot in the heart of the city

This rental, with the history surrounding it, and the stellar job they’ve done decorating, while keeping some of the old touches was really something special. Walking out of the house just makes you feel special.
