Description

Located on East Gordon Street, this smartly renovated cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple or family looking to stay in style in the historic district. A private parking space is located directly behind the property, and there is plenty of non-metered parking in the front.

Gordon Cottage features a spacious living room with large, inviting sofas perfect for lounging. The adjoining dining room can comfortably sit four, and is conveniently connected both to the bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen has all the conveniences you could need, including plenty of counter space, a breakfast nook, and a washer and dryer tucked away in the back corner.

Up the stairs you’ll discover two large bedrooms. The master bedroom features a king size bed and flat screen television. The second bedroom offers two, comfy twins, perfect for friends, family or kids! Making your way to the back of the home, you will locate the beautiful, serene, private courtyard.

Why Lucky Savannah Loves this Property:

- Pick a direction and walk! In just ten minutes you’ll find yourself at River Street, Forsyth Park, and several other Savannah attractions!

- The private courtyard in the back of the property has enough shade to be enjoyed in the summer.

- The industrial modern decor is offset with lots of natural light and glass paneled doors.

This was an overall positive experience, but there are some issues that prevent me from giving it a 5 star rating.
The location is perfect; easy enough to walk to the historic district or Forsyth Park. The property is on a quiet side street, which seems to be mostly owner occupied homes.
The room layout works, but I would caution anyone with mobility issues to think twice about this rental, due to the steep stairs up to the second floor.
The overall condition is OK. It could benefit from steam cleaning both carpets and furniture.
Now, some more serious concerns:
The dishwasher was out of order. The property management office expressed surprise at this, but given that there was a printed notice to that effect taped to the appliance, this seemed disingenuous. I placed a maintenance request, was told appliance repair would be on site, but no one arrived to fix it during our stay.
Photos showed a lovely table and four chairs outside, but in reality only two chairs (and no table) are available- this photo needs an update.
Lastly, the front room oddly smelled like a mens' locker room. This is off-putting, to say the least. This needs to be addressed by Lucky Savannah, which I communicated to them in writing.

Met my needs

Overall, we had a good experience at Gordon Cottage. The property was located in a quiet neighborhood out of the way with ample on street parking in addition to private spot behind the property. My truck was too large to fit in the space nicely so I used street parking. Since the property was within walking distance from most attractions, I didn't move my vehicle very often. This lead to me getting a parking ticket for being on the wrong side on street sweeping day. This could have been avoided if I paid more attention to signs. The property managers were helpful and pleasant. I liked that you could communicate via text and the hospitality app. The actual property was clean and sufficiently furnished. I must agree with a previous reviewer that there was a very unpleasant odor in the living room. I was unable to identify a source, but would describe it as almost an old man stale body odor. Also, the king bed could use some attention. A previous reviewer commented that it was on its stage. While it is an economy mattress, I think the real issue is structural. The bed is made of two twin mattresses and box springs. The box spring do not fit properly on the bed frame. Thus, when you lay on the bed one side of the box spring slides off the side rail and creates a very large dip in the mattress causing you to sink/roll to one side. I think a piece of plywood support under the box spring would fix the issue.

The Gordon Cottage was beautiful, well furnished and very clean. It had a nice, private backyard. It was in a good, quiet neighborhood, close to what we needed. I had a few concerns. We arrived on Thursday afternoon. The television in the living room did not work. I sent two emails and called the service. I was on hold for 20 minutes and hung up. I sent text messages the next day and was assured the problem would be fixed. It wasn't. Every day I received promises and excuses. After 5 days, the evening before we left, I was told that they didn't guarantee that the cable would work anyway. Also, the bedrooms are upstairs and the only bathroom is downstairs. To get ready you have to cart everything down very steep, narrow stairs. The stairs are also an adventure when you want to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. You need to have mountain goat DNA. I would not recommend this place for older adults or young children. Finally, the kitchen had pots, pans and dishes, but nothing else. If you want to cook something, you have to supply everything or eat out, which we did. The good news, downtown Savannah is only 5 minutes away.

Prime location, great rental!!

This charming cottage was the perfect place for a girls weekend. Super easy check-in, and the whole place was spotless. Nice updated bath, and I'm picky. And it turned out it was in a perfect location, so easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go!! Great management company - had a stupid question for them and they were super responsive right away. We enjoyed hanging out in the backyard for morning coffee and in the room shown for regrouping before heading out in the evening. Perfect!

We had a great experience at the Gordon Cottage. The only downside was that there weren't enough mirrors in the home. One tiny mirror in the dark bathroom, and one in the master... which was also small. Add a few mirrors in the home so women can do their makeup with confidence before hitting the strip :)

We had been planning a trip to Savannah, Georgia
For several years, finally getting to go this week!
The Gordon Cottage was great for all our needs! It
Was great to see sites only a few minutes walking
Time away. Our 17year old grandson enjoyed River
Street and the paddle boat tour!We are avid walkers
So this property was great for us! It is clean,warm
And neat with a grocery store just down the street.
Old homes preserved instead of tore down with
Lots of history! Planning to visit again and stay
At Gordon Cottage again!

We stayed at the Gordon Cottage for three nights. It was clean and has all the comforts of home. The back patio was a great addition. We had coffee every morning and it was a great place to rest after walking all day. It was within walking distance of restaurants and meandering your way down to River Street.

Overall the place was clean and had a great kitchen. My only feedback would be the front living room had a terrible smell. We tried Febreeze and it just kept coming back, it was so bad we would not even sit in there which was disappointing as that is the main sitting area in this rental. Next thing, for any future guests the stairs are extremely steep and slippery. DO NOT WEAR SOCKS TO WALK DOWN. Also due to the stairs I would say this unit is not small child friendly. Lastly, the bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs, so this can be aggravating having to go down the steep stairs every time you need to use or get to the bathroom.

Morgan, thank you for staying with Lucky Savannah! We're so appreciative of this feedback so that we can better the experience for future tenants, and apologize if you felt your experience was anything less than great. We hope to host you again in other home soon!

Overall trip was good. Park for people and dogs at the end of the street -- perfect. Location, within a mile of many sites and interests. Free parking fantastic, off street and unmetered on street. Be aware, single bath on ground floor and beds upstairs. Also, master bed in its last usable period.
