"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.

Located right in the heart of Savannah's picturesque downtown, park your car in the roomy 4 car driveway... and throw away the keys! Everything you want to see downtown is at your doorstep. The Estate was built in 1870 and consists of the handsome 3 story Manor with 4 Bedrooms and it's charming 2 story 2BR/2BA Carriage House (a home in itself with Kitchen, Living and Laundry Rooms!) that we've renamed, the Taylor Cottage. So get TWO homes for the price of one...and enjoy the spaciousness, charm and comfort of the Taylor Estate. Because there are actually two homes on adjacent lots connected by the roomy 4 car driveway that they share...you really do feel like you have your own very private Resort when you stay at the Taylor Estate!
After you spend your days exploring the historic downtown that is spread out all around the doorstep of the Estate, you'll love returning to superbly comfortable beds, fine linens, fluffy towels, polishedl heart-pine floors, & soft leather furnishings. the decor gives off an ambience reminiscent of 1870 when the home was built. But 21st century amenities and luxury remain at your fingertips.
Large groups enjoy re-connecting and gathering with ease in the airy and roomy floorplan of the Estate. But it's still easy to find your own private nook. Bedrooms each have a theme: Renaissance, Rosebud, Civil War, Louisa May Alcott Attic, Wicker, and Colonial.
We (the owners) lovingly restored the Estate in 2001. We homeschooled our two girls who've since graduated from SCAD and AASU colleges (also here in Savannah :). In 2006, we made the decision to rent "our home" out as a vacation rental. And that began my goal of bringing "home" into your vacation memories! Much of the decor are personal family heirlooms and antiques that belonged to my family members. We moved not too far...next door to be exact :). Which means no absentee owner problems! The home is Non-smoking. (smoking is allowed on outside patio in the courtyards). You'll find the Estate well maintained, clean and if a problem does arise, it is quickly addressed. Rain or shine...there's plenty to do in and out of the Estate! Soak in the Hot Tub surrounded by twinkle lights and (on a clear night) under the stars as well. Play Nintendo. Grill burgers & steaks in the Courtyards. Whip up meals in the huge Kitchen of the Manor (its handmade pine countertops are over 400 years old) or bake cookies in the quaint kitchen of the Cottage (all of the cabinetry is hand-hewn). Curl up with a book in one of the custom dormir windowseats of the LMA attic bedroom. Watch a movie on any one of the 5 TV's located throughout the Estate. Challenge a friend to a board game. Take tea on the balcony of the Master Bedroom. Relax in the comfortable umbrella table chairs in the Manor Courtyard and chit chat...watch the squirrels and birds scurry amid flowers and the shade trees. Or grab oe of the tennis racquets we supply and head to Forsyth Parks courts. Bring your baseball mitts and start up a game in the baseball field located in Beasely Park across East Broad Street. After checking out the local cuisine, order a trolley or carriage tour to meet you at the doorstep!
Additional perks the Estate has that other rentals dont....It is pet friendly and hypoallergenic. Mattresses are all encased and no dust mites or allergens allowed! Light draperies float airily from the high-windows. Polished heart of pine, marble and stone-tiled floors blend perfectly with the antique and soft leather/wood furnishings.
If all this hasn't yet convinced you there is nothing better than the Taylor Estate for your group...think about this....you get a six bedroom home made up of TWO "complete homes in themselves" which allows tremendous versatility for every type group. guys can go in one home, girls in the other. couples in one, singles in the other, grandparents in one, grandkids/parents in the other :).
Go ahead...imagine the possibilities!
I brought my Girl Scout troop down AGAIN for a trip to Historic Savannah, we were first here in Aug 2010. We loved the Taylor Estate so much that we didn't even consider another option for lodging. Having the convenience of a real home with a kitchen and multiple bathrooms (very much needed for a bunch of little girls) made the trip all the more enjoyable! We love everything about the home - the price, the décor, the location (we walked everywhere), the owners! The Schulz family are amazing - addressed our every need, supplied the home with a map, brochures, suggestions, etc. Everything we needed was already provided without having to ask for anything. I will definitely be returning to Savannah in the future, whether with future girl scouts or my family, and will definitely be calling Mrs. Schulz again! Thank you so much for your hospitality and making your home available to visitors like us! Sincerely, Girl Scout Troop 1158 Smyrna, DE
