Historic Savannah Vacation Rental
Bird Baldwin House
Bird Baldwin House

Step back in time and stay in the oldest home in Savannah (south of Liberty Street). The Bird Baldwin House, originally built in 1838 and located in the heart of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District – one of the largest areas of its kind in America, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Bird Baldwin House was built in two stages – the original wood-sided portion (left side) was constructed in 1838 and the stucco portion (right side) was added in 1860. Lewis Bird, a prominent Savannah attorney at the time, began the original construction but sadly perished with his entire family on the Steamship Pulaski when it exploded off the coast of North Carolina and sank on June 14, 1838. Mr. Bird's mother completed the house and later sold it to his law partner Mr. Baldwin who lived in it for many years. As one of the nicer manor homes along Liberty Street in Savannah during the Civil War, the house was seized and occupied by General Sherman’s staff in December 1864 as part of their capture of Savannah during the infamous Sherman’s March to the Sea.

Over the years, the house has been a private residence, a boarding house and a neighborhood tavern known as Harry's Place. By the 1970s, the house had deteriorated so badly that homeless people were living there and it had caught fire several times – yet the house miraculously survived. After sitting vacant for almost a decade, the house was lovingly restored in 1980 and converted into six apartments. In 1991 it became a Bed and Breakfast. Finally, in 2002, the building was converted into six luxury condominiums – most of which are currently offered as vacation rentals.

The property is ideally situated at the corner of two historic Savannah streets – Liberty Street and Barnard Street and within easy walking distance of the entire Landmark Historic District, including: We now offer four separate one-bedroom vacation rentals in the Historic Bird Baldwin House. The Bird Baldwin Garden is on the 1838 side and on the garden or ground level. The Bird Baldwin Magnolia Suite is on the 1860 side and is also on the garden level. The Bird Baldwin Parlor is on the 1838 side and on the second floor or parlor level. The Bird Baldwin Forsyth Suite is on the 1838 side and on the third floor. All four units are graciously appointed with a nice mix of luxury furnishings, antiques, and historic charm. Each condo boasts approximately 850 square feet of living space with spacious rooms with antique heart-pine flooring. Each condo sleeps two people with very comfortable beds and luxury linens.

Each condo also includes two HDTVs as well as Cable TV and wireless internet access. The bathrooms offer luxurious utility, each including a full tub/shower plus a stylish sink. The bright, well-organized kitchens provide a full complement of appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, range/oven and refrigerator, so you are all set if you wish to eat in. In the rear, a private patio (ground level units) or private balcony/sundeck (upper floor units) are ideal for your morning coffee or simply relaxing after a long day of Savannah sight-seeing.

As an added bonus, all four condos include complimentary off-street parking (one space per unit) just steps from your back door. No need to feed any parking meters or buy a visitor parking pass. These four luxurious Bird Baldwin condos offer everything you could ever want in a Historic Savannah vacation rental combined with the perfect location. The condos can be rented separately or together for larger groups (subject to availability). Live like a true Savannah native... If only for a short while!
