We had four couples - three in the main house and one in the carriage house, all in Savannah for the first time. The decor was superb in all the rooms. Staying at 511 E Broughton meant that enjoying historic Savannah didn't have to stop when we went "home" for the day. The artwork, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and brick courtyard all contributed to the feeling of living in a little piece of historic Savannah.
The location was wonderful - the only time we got in the car was for a grocery run to Kroger (about 1 mile away) and an afternoon trip to Tybee Island (about 30 minutes). We walked to the visitors center, Forsyth Park, all of River Street and City Market, and we were within just a couple blocks to Leopold's Ice Cream shop, and Cha Bella - our new favorite Savannah restaurant. The view looking out is not really that impressive, but we didn't go to Savannah to see the city through windows.
The house's features were wonderful. The internet connection was great for us first-time visitors checking out reviews, and the garage even fit a full-size GMC Savannah van with a couple inches to spare. The dining room fit the eight of us around the table with no problem, and the living room fit the eight of us around the center table for a lively game night. The carriage house got rave reviews from my sister and brother-in-law. It is not the cheapest place to stay, but it was certainly worth it for us. Robbie and Helen made sure we had what we needed, and were very kind in more ways than one.
