Description

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

Our first time to Savannah! the Wilkes house is charming, cozy, and beautiful! Loved the history and wedding picture in the bedroom! Its close enough to be walking distance but far enough away to be peaceful! The only thing i would add is there were no kleenex tissues anywhere and no pen with the guestbook ( we had to use a sharpie, the only thing i had) Also as a first timer we missed lunch downstairs because we didn't now she was only open on weekdays, we had reservations for a tour the one day we could go.

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!!

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!

The Wilke's house was amazing. Perfect property on a beautiful, picturesque street. I couldn't believe how much room there was. Beautifully decorated. The extra half bath was nice. Everything worked. Parking was easy on the street in front of the house. Location was perfect. We could walk to everything. There was some noise from the restaurant downstairs and the line under the bedroom window starts about 9. Check in/check out was easy on the Lucy Savannah app. Loved the phone call a few days ahead to check and make sure we understood everything and answer any questions. Great service and great property.

We stayed at the "sister" rental above Mrs. Wilkes last year and loved it. Our stay this year was also very enjoyable. The best part is the location on Jones Street. We parked our car and walked everywhere! The apartment was beautifully decorated. After staying at both Wilkes locations I would choose Wilkes Pied-a-Terre. We liked the layout better and it was a brighter apartment. Loved the lunch at Mrs. Wilkes restaurant and not having to wait in line. Overall the apartment was clean, but can't rate cleanliness a 5 because found a good bit of dust behind/under some of the furniture. Window sills were also dirty.

This is not the 1st time we stayed at the Wilks House, nor will it be the last. For the price of any one of the up-scale hotels, you have 4 rooms of history, and a free meal downstairs in the famous Boarding House Restaurant. Say Hello to Marcia, Mr. Wilks grandaughter, and her son Ryan... that runs the place. It's history here that's your experiencing !

We enjoyed are stay at the Wilkes House, but would like to call your attention to some of the issues we encountered. There was a coffee pot provided, but only 1 pack of coffee for a three day stay. There should have been one pack per day. Also there was no cream or sugar. The biggest problem we encountered was parking our vehicle. We had to get out on the street by 8:00 AM to feed a meter. This was a real problem. Then when I arrived home, my husband found a parking citation for parking in a street sweeping zone issued at 1:10 AM. I believe that the parking situation would prevent me from booking the Wilkes House in the future.

Our first visit to Savannah and there had to be a hurricane!! We enjoyed every minute of our stay in the Wilkes apartment. We had everything we needed to be comfortable. The location is perfect! The staff quickly took care of any questions and concerns. We had to leave a day early due to evacuation of Matthew. Our flight home was cancelled, airport closed for 2 days...we had to drive 11 hours to get home. Alamo wanted to gouge us 3X our rental rate to drop the car off at a different airport. We were amazed when we received an email one night was refunded! Great customer service and I would highly recommend staying at this location! Thank you!

We arrived at the Wilkes House in the pouring rain on Friday evening, found a parking spot right out front and were impressed from the moment we arrived. We walked inside to an incredibly warm, charming and gorgeously decorated apartment and knew instantly we would be back. The photos we viewed online beforehand were spot on. The apartment was clean and well-maintained and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend our weekend getaway. We look forward to a return visit during the week so we can experience dining at the restaurant, which is closed on the weekends. We walked a few blocks down to Clary’s Café on Abercorn and enjoyed delicious breakfasts, including their yummy sticky buns. We had a wonderful shrimp and grits dinner at Huey’s On The River and also found a tasty chicken summer risotto at The Public on West Liberty. We are looking forward to our next visit and will definitely be staying at the Wilkes House again.

This was a perfect stay... in every way !

We're in our late 60's, and have been on untold vacations... dozens of trips to Savannah, and have stayed at most every price range. If I could say anything on the down side, I spent hours looking for something unique to pop-up, and I had to go hunting for this apartement in the Wilkes House. (not great internet exposure...) BUT, that's probably why I was able to book the perfect time over our anniversary. I hate to memtion... the price per night was equal to a high-mid range hotel room - AND WE GOT TO STAY IN THE FULL LIVING QUARTERS OF MRS. WILKES... ABOVE THE FAMOUS WILKES HOUSE RESTAURANT(on West Jones Street). I would give everything a 10 on a 5 star review. The staff at Lucky Savannah - 1st class, and the inclusion of the free (enter through the back door) lunch at the Wilkes house, where we met Marcia (Mrs. Wilkes Grandaughter), who now (with her husband Ronnie and their son), serves as the proprietors... as Marcia replaces her grandmother so proudly, as the hostess. This was our best vacation ever. Thank you !

We wanted a real Savannah experience with our stay and the Wilkes House was perfect in every way. Location was great, area was gorgeous, and unit was very spacious, very clean, the half bath was great and came with the perk of eating downstairs at Mrs. Wilkes. Parking on-street was no problem (get a pass from visitors bureau). Management was handled very professionally - I could not recommend this more highly, we stayed 3 days and loved every minute of it.

Great location. Very walkable. The meter parking out front was easy, we just bought a couple of two day passes from the visitors center. The apartment itself was nice. The kitchen could use an update and better stocking, but unless you have kids with you like we did, you're probably not planning on eating in much. The people at the restaurant were very nice and we enjoyed cutting through the kitchen to eat. Don't miss it. There will be crowds out front and workers out back, but that added to the Savannah experience for us.

The apartment is lovely and large but with Mrs. Wilkes downstairs it was quite loud from 8:00 a.m. until after 4:00 p.m. You will have loud crowds lining-up right under the bedroom window and up and down the porch steps from around 9:00 a.m. until late afternoon. We often had people sitting on the porch steps and bench, and everyday people were blocking the sidewalks. The rental rate reflects this, as they could easily charge double without the restaurant in the basement. Great location on beautiful Jones street, and quiet in the evening. It looks exactly like the pictures.

SCAD is in our daughter's future and so we "had to" come to Savannah again! We love it more every time & this rental made it easy to fall deeper in love! Immaculate. Perfect size for a couple plus a teen. Location was excellent to most. Drawback was parking but our short trip mitigated issues. Mrs. Wilkes VIP treatment for lunch made this rental an over the top delightful experience. Joy was kind and attentive during our brief stay and I'm going we can stay here again in September when we bring our daughter back to school. Drawbacks? Minimal, but we should have shopped for a few grocery staples on our way in, and perhaps the bed could use a new mattress but it wasn't terrible. An egg-crate foam pad for the pull out couch would be a plus.

Fabulous Home!

I came to spoil my niece for her high school graduation and 18th birthday. We wanted something special and Wilkes House delivered. It was a welcoming home to return to after touring all day and the decor and furnishings added to it. We would definitely stay again. The only wish was for a cookie sheet or Pyrex dish for baking. Everything else that we could want was there! The VIP treatment at Wilkes restaurant is enviable. We knew we'd get to sneak down the back, but didn't know that we would get 2 meals for free! Anna was very kind answering all our questions! One tip that would be nice to include in the pre-info would be the parking pass. I would have gotten it before heading over. Thanks! Until next time...

We were so happy that we picked the Wilkes House to stay at during our weekend in Savannah. The property was beautiful and very convenient to the historic district area. The Wilkes Restaurant was amazing too and it was awesome that we didn't have to wait or pay since we were staying in the Wilkes House. Would definitely stay here again if we were to go back to Savannah.

Staying in this gracious home in a great location was a perfect option for my daughter and I to celebrate a special birthday. The rooms were huge and we loved coming "home" to relax. The neighborhood is charming and close to nice shops, cute restaurants and easily walkable to squares and downtown. Lunch at mrs Wilkes is really an experience and we loved the VIP option! Parking was a challenge on the weekends only because of street cleaning and despite buying a pass, we still got a ticket :(. Our fault. Overall a great place to stay in a wonderful city

A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The best part about this property is it's style and location. Staying in a property that is well over 100 years old is a treat. The architecture in the home is beautiful and was what we most enjoyed inside. Of course with age comes some small things that might not be appreciated by everyone. The sofa is a little lumpy and the bed squeaks a little. We found these small imperfections to actually add to the charm and experience. The lock on the back door should be replaced as the handle falls off when ever the door is closed. Still we would not hesitate to stay there again. The street is beautiful and one can walk to any where in the Historic District. We walked every where for 4 days then got a car for 4 days to check out areas away from the Historic District. The people that worked at Mrs. Wilkes were very friendly and helpful. The food was great and much better than "The lady and Son's" which was a tourist trap with over salted food and not much selection. We also appreciated the washing machine, dishwasher, and refrigerator. We only cooked oatmeal for breakfast and used the microwave a couple of times but it was handy. The Kroger is a 15 minute walk and a discount card was provided in the kitchen. We are in our mid sixties and found this property very enjoyable and much better than staying in a hotel. The bedroom alone is bigger any hotel room and the bath and a half was convenient. we will recommend this property to our friends that are considering a trip to Savannah.

The Wilkes House is exceptional. It is olde South. It is in an excellent location in the Historic District. It is within walking distance of almost everything you'll want to see or do in Savannah. The best thing is that you don't have to stand in line to eat at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House!!!

Stayed for five nights over St Patrick's Day weekend. You need to be prepared for urban street noise at times and kitchen noise in the living room during the week. We truly enjoyed this experience, the kitchen staff is very friendly, and our lunch at Mrs. Wilkes was fun! Gorgeous large rooms, very comfortable, bathroom tub plumbing needs tweeking but functional.

We had a 5 day stay and enjoyed every moment. The apartment was large, clean, beautifully furnished and complete with every item we could have needed. We knew in advance that the restaurant was just downstairs so the voices and kitchen noise were not a surprise and actually part of the experience. No noise what so ever the entire weekend. Savannah is so walkable that Jones Street provides easy access to the north and east to the historic district which is more tourist focused as well as to the south with a more residential feeling. Everyone we met on the property was very helpful and friendly. Seriously, not having to wait in line for lunch on Monday was wonderful, as was lunch.
