Savannah Villas is an Excellent Group Retreat Location. Just ask the Scouts!

Last year we had the pleasure of hosting a retreat for a group of very young ladies. They were, in fact, girl scouts. It was a pile of fun and we have some photos and quotes from both the scouts and their mothers.

Our Girl Scout troop visited Savannah for the 100th year celebration. Planning a trip for over 30 girls and moms is a difficult task. It is not easy to please everyone. One decision which was effortless was booking this property.

Everyone was thrilled with the accommodations and location. Helen and Robbie were delightful and accommodating of our large group. I would not hesitate to book this property again and we have recommended it to other troops at our school.  It was the perfect mix of elegance and comfort.                ~ Paula

Wow! How wonderful – we had a great time hosting this group. You see, between our three vacation rental properties, we can host up to 44 guests. However, our largest rental house is 109 West, where the girl scouts were staying.

The Scout Troop that visited our Savannah Vacation Property

The main level sits above street level, and features a fully equipped, spacious kitchen with bar seating and a table and chairs, great for making pancake breakfasts and other fun group meals. Along with a large banquet room with seating for ten, and a comfortable lounge, there is plenty of space for everyone. The upper two levels each feature three bedrooms and three baths, and the fourth level is a lovely, intimate penthouse.

Here is what one of the scouts thought about her stay:

The house was so beautiful. It was fun exploring – it was so big. It was nice that we were able to walk to all our activities each day. Next time we go to Savannah, I hope we stay there again.             ~ Chloe, age 10

Corporate Retreats in Savannah, Georgia

Corporate retreats serve many purposes. By breaking meetings out of the board room, they encourage people to think outside of the box. By breaking work out of the office, they encourage colleagues to foster relationships. You may sit in a cubby next to a colleague for years and never discuss anything other than work. Spend a few days at one of our Savannah Rental Homes with that same colleague during a corporate retreat, and you learn that he is a fantastic cook, or that her favorite author is Victor Hugo. Barriers are broken down. Creativity is sparked.

Hold your next corporate retreat at our Savannah Vacation Home at 109 West.

Our Savannah Vacation Rentals are ideal for business travel.

  • “Don’t be apprehensive about too much togetherness or a lack of privacy. Those are non-issues at 109 West.”
  • “It exceeded every expectation we had.”
  • “We stayed here for a business forum retreat and this place was spectacular!”
  • “We have held our Executive Board Retreat and Planning Session at 109 West now for 3 years running. … We build teamwork by cooking our own breakfast in the well furnished kitchens.”
  • “Our company rented the entire property @ 109 West, which worked out wonderfully for our company wide sales meeting…. Convenient to other business meetings, as well as downtown Savannah.”
  • “We had 10 participants and everyone had their own living quarters…. We were able to conduct our meeting in the garden level living area. Being able to conduct team building and presentations without leaving the facility assisted with that aspect of the meeting.”
  • “It was the perfect place for our guests to enjoy their stay as well as conduct our daily business meetings…. This property exceeded our best expectations and receives a hearty “must try” for all.

Business travelers often stay in hotels, and while there is nothing wrong with that, it is a missed opportunity. Sharing a living space is a team-building exercise in and of itself. Living under one roof requires give and take, even with simple things like making coffee in the morning and washing the glasses at the end of the day. The Savannah Vacation Rental at 109 West allows for many of these simple team-building exercises. At the same time, it is spacious enough that colleagues will each have their own space and feel comfortable.
