About The Gingerbread House

The Gingerbread House, built in 1899, is an excellent example of Steamboat Gothic architecture. It is known for the gingerbread arches that are featured predominantly on the exterior of the building. It is one of the most famous homes in the Historic District of Savannah, Georgia - and for good reason. People come from across the country to host events at this picturesque event venue.

When you host your event at The Gingerbread House, your guests will admire the furnishings of the home that combine classic elegance with authentic Victorian decadence and flair. The three fireplaces provide a warm and intimate atmosphere, and a wooden staircase gives a look of grace that is ideal for pictures. While the interior is attractive and features wood trim, the exterior is breathtaking. Enjoy a beautiful courtyard that can feature intimate pictures.

Individuals, families, and groups can choose what type of event and services they would like from The Gingerbread House. We welcome guests to rent the entire house, which includes numerous rooms for entertaining.

Guests do not forget the memories that are made at The Gingerbread House. The Historic District of Savannah, Georgia should not be overlooked when it comes to selecting the location of your next event.

We are certain that once you have had the chance to view our venue, you will love it just as much as we do!

    Everything was Perfect!

    Thank you so very much to The Gingerbread House for hosting our wedding this weekend. Our 80 guests were blown away! Sarah was great to work with- and on the day of Amanda took charge of every detail and executed everything perfectly. If I would have asked her for a pink glitter pony minutes before the ceremony, you would have seen one prancing down the aisle and I would never be the wiser of how hard it was to get! We basically ended up having the run of the house for the entire weekend, which made everything so much easier and less stressful! Our guests raved about the food, which was a special vegetarian menu they made to accommodate us. The DJ was great for both the ceremony and reception. Everything ran smoothly and on time, and everyone had a great time in this beautiful old house. Thank you!
