Wilkes Three

Guest Reviews

Description

Rich in both history and charm, this building was once the home of Mrs. Wilkes, proprietress of the famous Boarding House and still-operational Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room. This third floor apartment offers a unique accommodations for up to four Lucky guests. You’ll 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 will give you a sense of stepping back in time, while the tasteful interior decor and modern amenities provide all the luxuries of staying at hotel - with more room. The large living room has plenty of space and comfortable seating so you can curl up with a good book or enjoy a movie night with your entire party. The galley kitchen opens to the dining room, so you’ll always be part of the conversation. You’ll find everything you need to cook a full meal, or just enjoy a cup of coffee while you plan your day.

The bedroom features a king sized, four poster bed, and the dresser and closet provide plenty of space to unpack and settle in. The ensuite bath has a tub/shower combo, vanity with sink and a separate vanity ideal for getting ready for a night out.

Wilkes Three is an ideal location to call home while exploring 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:
- This apartment has a full sized washer and dryer, making it ideal for extended stays.
- A walk down nearby Whitaker Street will bring you to several locally owned shops, including One Fish Two Fish, Number Four Eleven, and Lily Bay Studio + Bazaar.
- Digital nomads can get some work done at the desk in the bedroom.

Sleeping Configuration:
Bedroom 1: King Bed
Living Room: Queen Sleeper Sofa

*Guests receive one free lunch for two with every three-night booking. Please contact the Mrs. Wilkes Restaurant directly regarding seasonal hours.

My husband and I spent 5 days at Wilkes Three. We loved the property. It was in a great location; easy to walk to most areas. We enjoyed being in a 'house' instead of a hotel. The property description is very accurate, it is clean, large and comfortable. We had great customer service. We will visit again and highly recommend the property.

This was one of the most fantastic places we have stayed in. It was very clean, and maintained. We were able to park our car in a garage nearby and walk to River Street and the parks, etc. We walked everywhere and used Uber twice late at night. If you can, definitely eat at Mrs. Wilkes downstairs - it will be a meal you will never forget. We highly recommend staying here and definitely recommend taking the trolley tour where you can get on and off. The management company is outstanding!

When we decided to stay in Savannah for our honeymoon, I was looking for a place that had that old Savannah charm. This place has it!! It was great and the location is so convenient to everything..Forsyth park, city market, Broughton St. and, of course, Mrs. Wilkes. The rental was very clean. Easy to check in & check out. Got emails & texts to walk you through everything. Will stay here again!!

We really enjoyed our stay in Savannah. This was our first trip to the city and we weren't sure what to expect, but we loved the area, and we loved staying at Wilkes 3. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The building's location on picturesque Jones Street was ideal, as we were able to walk to every place we visited in the old historic district. Thanks to Lucky Savannah for helping to make our first trip here so enjoyable!

Wilkes Three was a beautiful place to stay! Spacious rooms and clean. We walked everywhere, the location couldn’t have been better! One thing to note is that the parking on W Jones is metered and you have to feed the meter every two hours or risk being ticketed. You can get a parking pass from the Welcome Center in Savannah if you wanted. We ended up parking in a garage several blocks away. Since we walked everywhere it wasn’t really an issue to not have our car right outside the house. The only thing about the house I would change would be to put curtains in the bedroom. There’s a streetlight outside the window and it shines into the room through the blinds at night. Otherwise it was perfect! Very well equipped kitchen too, not that we used it much! Mrs Wilkes Dining Room was THE best meal of our trip!!! Amazing food and cozy atmosphere. The employees there are awesome!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Wilkes Three very much! It was nicely decorated, very clean and the bed was super comfortable! The location was convenient and of course Jones Street is very picturesque. As others stated, we did have issues with the WiFi, but only when we were in the bedroom, as long as we were in the living room it seemed to work fine. We highly recommend staying here!

This apartment is best enjoyed by those who savor the experience of being in the historic part of the city, in a real- old historic house. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place: The bed was very comfy, plenty of seating, privacy, large bathroom, usable kitchen. It was very clean, and well kept. We are romantics who loved best the old hardwood floors, wide baseboards, old windows and doors, high ceilings and large room dimensions. The furnishings were an eclectic mix old older and modern pieces.
The boarding house restaurant below stairs was particularly interesting. The lunch line began forming just below our window at 9:30AM, but it was just part of the experience-it didn't particularly bother us. The food there was very good, and we appreciated the free lunch pass! If you use the kitchen for your meals, you should have what you need for the basics. We would love to come back!

This was one of the best vacations I have had in a really long time. This was a beautiful home/apartment with great history and charm. If you ever get a chance to stay at the Wilkes house, you must try it. It was also very affordable for the time frame that my husband and I stayed here. He still feel that we had a ghost in our apartment, but I guess that was one of the charming things about staying in Savannah.

Great location! Clean and all details were thought of. We had a problem with the air conditioning and the management was so nice - offered to come fix it but we declined because it was at midnight.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Wilkes Home in Savannah! The home is historically gorgeous with all the character of an old southern home. On our first night (10pm) we did discover a maintenance issue and contacted Lucky Savannah and they were immediately responsive.

Tessa was wonderful through the process and made sure everything was handled very professionally and our needs were met. We were very impressed with their responsiveness, professionalism, and follow up throughout the process and during our weekend stay. She and staff made you feel as though they genuinely cared and were very professional.

We would highly recommend using Lucky Savannah! They give a small business family feel to their service, with outstanding customer service & professionalism!

The apartment was clean and very nice. The pictures don't really do it justice. It's bigger than it looks in the photos. The sofa bed worked very well as we also brought a couple of our kids. We were very concerned about trying to find a parking spot on the road but we never had to park further than a block away. Just make sure you notice the warning signs about the street sweeper on Saturday and Sunday morning. We did get a ticket for it ($25). Overall, we highly recommend it and will definitely come back.

I went there with my family (wife and 3 kids, one of them a baby). The apartment is very well located, in one of the most beautiful streets in Savannah, and close to all Historic district attractions. The apartment was very comfortable for us (using the couch as a bed for the kids), clean and with nice light during the afternoon. The only complains were:
- access instructions not very clear and we had to call the manager office.
- wifi signal was super slow and spotty.
Other than that, we had a wonderful stay and loved every second we stayed in the apartment.

We really enjoyed our stay in Savannah, a city full of history and character with its own soul. And this appartement, in the heart of the historic district was perfectly in sync with the overall city atmosphere, as we had the impression to live as real Savannah inhabitants. The appartement, pretty huge, has plenty of charm, decorated and furnished with taste in all rooms including bathroom and kitchen. The voucher to access Mrs Wicles restaurant, located in the basement was a real plus to cut the impressive queue forming every day at lunchtime. We really experienced and enjoyed here the delicious simple and true Southern cooking as well as the warm sense of hospitality. Despite the WiFi connection not always very stable, all was perfect. Definitely a recommended address for current and future Savannah lovers.

From the moment we arrived in Savannah, we were taken aback by the beautiful moss filled trees and flowering bushes along the scenic, historical roadways! Mrs. Wilkes boarding house was no exception to this beauty. The house was very conveniently located to all the adventures Savannah had to offer. It was within walking distance to everything. Wilkes Three was decorated beautifully with historical furnishings but had all the modern conveniences and amenities a guest needed. The property was spotless and very well-maintained. We very much enjoyed the free lunch that Mrs. Wilkes' grandaughter provided with our stay. We loved the southern food (we counted 24 dishes) and the friendly conversation with our neighbors. While staying in the boarding house, we walked to numerous beautiful squares, saw "Forrest Gump", toured the Owens Thomas House, ate at the historic Pirate House, spent our evenings at the waterfront watching ships come in, and enjoyed Paula Deen's retail shop and restaurant. We highly recommend the Old Savannah trolly tours as well.

The rental was amazing, very convenient and walkable to everything. Love the decor, it really set the tone for the city. The free lunch for two at Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room was amazing! Bathroom and kitchen could use a little updating though. We had one issue where work being done in the unit upstairs caused water to start dripping down into the furnace closet of our unit. Contacted the management company and it was correctly quickly. Everyone we talked with was friendly, polite, and helpful.
