Places to stay in Savannah

The picture perfect bedroom

Busy Bees know Savannah is the Hostess City of the South and Busy Bee Vacations loves to share what we know about our Georgia seaport.  We could go on and on, but sometimes our guests say it best!

“My husband and I wanted a weekend getaway within walking distance to the Historic District. The cottage was clean and beautiful. The street was quiet and had great parking. It was a great place to really feel like a local…like you were part of a neighborhood, complete with local eateries within a block. Loved it and we will be back” – Lucky Gal

The Savannah Shutterbug Cottage is located in the Historic Landmark District in Downtown Savannah.  Our one bedroom cottage is so-named because it was the studio of one of Savannah’s most well-loved wedding photographers. We have turned the studio into a one bedroom adorable cottage for your stay.

A quiet escape in the middle of the city, the Shutterbug is located two blocks from St. John’s Cathedral and Firefly Cafe, a ten minute walk to Bay Street/Savannah River, and ten minute walk south to Forsyth Park.  This charming, historic cottage was just renovated and it features an open living/dining room in the front of the cottage.  You’ll love the  new WestElm sofa and rugs.  The photography flair and the decor give the home a contemporary yet cozy feel. The entire cottage features original photography from Donna Von Bruening’s travels both near and far. Prints are available for you to purchase should you fall in love and want to take one home (and we are betting you will!!!). Continue Reading »

Our Guests Say It Best!

savannah georgiaHere at Busy Bee Vacations, we want to make sure that your stay in Coastal Georgia is as comfortable as possible.  We love to brag on our hometown and share why we feel it so unique!  Our guests can best tell you why there’s so much BUZZ about our historic cottages and townhouses and here’s what they’re saying!

“We recently rented Claire’s Retreat for a weekend away in Savannah, and were thrilled with this rental. The property is practically brand new, very nicely furnished, and very well-kept. The location is also wonderful – it is conveniently located between the historic parks (such as Forsyth and all of the squares with the historic homes) and the River Street area with all of its charming little shops, so we were able to walk to everywhere we went. The rental process was also very easy and Laurie is wonderful to work with – she offered us quite a number of recommendations for dining and things to do around town during our stay and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. We definitely plan to return and hope we have the opportunity to visit Claire’s Retreat, again.”

“Thank you, Busy Bee! Claire’s Retreat was EXACTLY what we needed to escape our hectic life in the ATL. Not only was the location smack dab in the middle of everything we could have hoped for in Downtown but when we came home, it was like we WERE HOME, only cleaner (: We will be back!”savannah townhomesavannah georgiahaunted places to stay in savannah ga

“We had the best time at Claire’s retreat!!! We came to get away with a few friends and this place exceeded our expectations. Check In/Out was simple and easy. Just a 10 minute walk to River street. We enjoyed the fabulous courtyard all weekend and there was a delicious pizza place right across the street. We ate there twice!! We would love to stay here again!”

“This by far was my favorite visit to Savannah. We loved staying at this property and felt instantly right at home. I have stayed in many older homes in the city and this one has tons of charm but all the modern items you need on vacation. The courtyard was a huge plus and great to sit outside and enjoy the fountain. Every room has a comfortable and cottage feel and you will really be able to walk to just about anything. We are booked for a return visit in the spring!”

We’re busy as bees adding new historic homes to our collection, so let us find just the right retreat for you!  Oh?  You want to come for an extended stay?  We’ll help you find just the right home for your extended stay and we specialize in Executive Worker Bee long-term rentals, too!
