Sharing the centrally located grounds of the landmark Wedding Cake Mansion is the carefully restored Wedding Cake Garden Suite. This historic self-contained vacation property is street level with no stairs to manipulate, perfect for handicapped guests or those having trouble with stairs. In Savannah we call these street level properties “Garden Suites” because you walk straight out to the garden courtyard without any stairs. The Wedding Cake Mansion Garden Suite has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to easily accommodate six guests with the use of a sleeper sofa.
The Garden Suite is situated at street level; like the rest of this historic residence, which also sets it apart from other Savannah GA vacation rentals, it exudes an aura of comfort and elegance. Step in through the front door and appreciate the polished wood floors, white paneled wainscoting and period correct furnishings that make a wonderful first impression in the spacious entrance hall.
Carefully restored architectural detail and quality craftsmanship can be seen throughout this charming suite, from the wooden architrave around the windows and doors to the period furnishings which can be admired throughout.
The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite has the added benefit of direct access to the furnished courtyard garden, complete with water feature.
The Garden Suite offers convenient first floor level accommodation with bright and airy rooms tastefully decorated in a muted palette of colors. The comfortably furnished living/dining room boasts artwork and period furnishings chosen to complement the historic ambience without sacrificing the necessary comforts of the 21st century such as the large plasma screen TV. There is a full size sleeper sofa in the living area.
The cherry wood kitchen has mahogany cabinetry along with Corian countertops. Guests have use of a dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, microwave, W/D in the suite and a range of other appliances. Original decorative fireplaces, bespoke window dressings and white wainscoting add to the comfortable ambience of this historic home. All bedrooms are dressed with luxury linens and plump pillows to ensure the very best night’s sleep.
The homely living room leads out onto the private patio, which is the main feature of this Garden Suite. Located in the original courtyard of the mansion, the furnished paved area appropriately features a stunning imported Italian statue of Flora, the goddess of flowers, and a tinkling water fountain.
