Smallest house in Savannah, Ga., makes a big impression with exquisite layout

This little red charmer is famous! Built in 1845, and renovated in 2008, this tiny piece of history is included on every tour of the Historic District as the smallest free-standing house in Savannah. If you're looking for a truly unique destination for your next getaway, the cottage is listed as a VRBO vacation rental.
The small floor plan manages to squeeze in a living room, full kitchen, loft bedroom, and bathroom. The decor is simple and classic with crisp white walls and neutral furnishings. The backyard courtyard provides additional space to relax and enjoy a balmy Savannah evening. Take the full tour of this tiny cottage below.
The living room features plenty of seating and a cozy atmosphere to sit and chat with company or curl up with a book. The furniture is neutral, but accessories and pillows add color.
Planked walls and the exposed-beam ceiling provide architectural interest. When working with a small space, hanging mirrors can help the room feel more spacious.
Every cozy home needs a fireplace. This classic mantle under the stairway creates a perfect little nook for starting a crackling fire on a cool fall evening.
Natural light pours into the home thanks to a French door off of the kitchen, making it cheery and bright. The wooden stairway leading up to the loft bedroom is bursting with character.
You'd never know this is a historic home by looking at the kitchen. It has been fully modernized and updated with granite counter tops and classic subway tile. Glass-front cabinets help the space feel more open.
The upstairs bedroom is simple and comfortable with vaulted ceilings and built-in storage.
The opposite side of the room features a writing desk and access to the stairs. This little, secluded bedroom would be such a special place to spend a night or two.
The private backyard courtyard is yet another enchanting part of this unique home. It is the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet evening, and according to the VRBO listing, you can view fireworks on the first weekend of every month from it.
