"This was the perfect place for us. We had a great time here. We enjoyed drinking wine on the patio in the afternoon. The bedrooms were big and the beds comfortable and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. We would highly recommend this home! Suzanne is a great hostess & very accommodating. We'll definitely be back with our next group."
-Susan Hansen, Forney, TX Rate 5/5
"Prettier than the Pictures!"
"We rented the Taylor Estate for a combined bachelor/bachelorette party. There were 12 of us, and we had plenty of room! The house was beautiful - every room is like a dream! I couldn't believe it when we got there - it was even better than I had imagined. We had a fabulous weekend - we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We will stay at Taylor Estate every time we're in Savannah.

COME AND ENJOY TRUE SOUTHERN COMFORT.... SUPER-SIZED!
When you stay in our historic, 1870's Estate (comprised of our handsome Manor along with its "former" Carriage House (renamed Taylor Cottage after it was restored and enlarged to a full home in itself)...you won't just visit and stay in Savannah..you'll be LIVIN' the true Savannah life!
Avoid crowded hotels and, instead, spend your vacation in the heart of Savannah's Landmark Historic Downtown District enjoying location, location, location AND incredible convenience blended with stylish, luxurious comfort! Park your car in our spacious 4 car driveway. Then, toss the keys and forget them. You can stroll to all the historic sites, museums, restaurants, tours, river walk, and famous Savannah Squares and parks. The Manor of the Estate is located on East Taylor Street (Filming of the recent Robert Redford movie, "The Confederate" was on Taylor Street in 2011). Trolley and Horse & Carriage Tours will pick your group up at your doorstep! Drop your jaw as you stroll amid Spanish-moss draped Oaks lining nearby Whitfield Square. Spend your days antiquing,shopping, or just playing baseball in MM Beasely Park (across the street), renting bikes & pedaling to one a festival at Forsyth Park, driving 20 minutes to the beach, buying trinkets on River Street, delighting in haute cuisine,or...just sitting back and grilling steaks in the Estate Courtyard! No matter how you spend your days...you will find yourself, as lovely as Savannah is to see..reluctant to leave the comfort and ambience of the Taylor Estate.
That's because Southern hospitality never felt so good as it does in our comfy beds and spacious rooms. The decor helps kindle an 1870 ambience to your stay...yet you'll enjoy all the amenities of the 21st century including free WiFi access, flat screen TVs, Boardgames, Nintendo, soft leather furnishings and high end appliances with everything you need to cook/bake and entertain yourselves.
Why squeeze into cramped hotel rooms scattered about on various floors? Instead,stay together in 3300 square feet of luxurious comfort & a convenience that reaches "historic" proportions! Built in 1870, the Estate was lovingly restored in 2001 by us. Intended as our personal home, we didn't furnish or equip it as a "rental" and you'll find our homey touches and family heirlooms throughout the Estate. We lived in the Manor and our parents in the Cottage until deciding to move "next door" and beginning it's turn as a Vacation Rental Home. We take pride that the Estate is first & foremost.. a "home" and secondly a vacation rental "home". But it is never the typical vacation rental "house" nor is it intended to be. All beds are within themed bedrooms...not a sofa sleeper to be found! Indeed... Taylor Estate is "the" home you want whether coming to Savannah for a family reunion, corporate rental, girl/guy getaway, Girl Scout trip, Destination Wedding or... simply to have a weekend away to taste the true Savannah lifestyle!
You'll find it easy in the relaxing comfort of the Estate to renew old acquaintances and deepen friendships, all the while curled up in our soft, leather furnishings amid polished hardware heart-pine flooring and glowing marble fireplaces. Enjoy the warmth and spaciousness of our stone-tiled "Cooks" Kitchen and stretch out as you soak in our 6 foot long claw tub, or feel the jets of our indoor whirlpool tubs. But the best of the best is enjoying our outdoor Hot Tub when you stay in the Estate or Manor-only! Soak away sore muscles amidst twinkle lights, stars and sipping on hot chocolate Truly a relaxation experience you'll treasure! All this amidst a decor reminiscent of old-world luxury.
As said...The location, convenience and truly exceptional comfort of our homes truly cannot be beat!
You are surrounded by everything you want to see. A recent guest said it best....
"I love the location! You go THROUGH
everything, as you go TO everything!"
