What Is Heirloom? The Heirloom Story

Two chairs sit side-by-side with a table in between on the front porch of an Heirloom Savannah home. Cocktails are on the table and a plant wall hangs behind the tableau.

Like most good ideas, Heirloom was formed from the answer to a simple question. If people are traveling together more than ever, why are there so few hotels or vacation rentals for big groups?

Our Beginnings

In 2017, brothers Dan and Frank Glaser formed Heirloom (stayloom.com) in Boston, MA. They encountered a problem faced by thousands of travelers every year. They were searching for accommodations for their family over Thanksgiving. After an unsuccessful search, they realized hotels were too anonymous, and vacation rentals were too small. (Or looked like student hostels.)

Here, warm wood tones throughout immediately grab the eye, from the flooring, table, and ceiling beams. A dining table lines the left side of the photo, a breakfast bar island is in the center of the photo, and the sink and appliances go from the center-back of the image wrapping around the back along the right side.
Vacation rentals for big groups shouldn’t be boring. This carriage house in Savannah, GA shows the power of raw wood has to transforming a space.

How We’re Changing Group Travel

Dan and Frank took matters into their own hands and created Heirloom to solve this problem. They started creating consistent, high-quality rentals which allow guests to feel connected to the local community and offer ample space to come together as a group.

Travelers now no longer have to fragment their group in a block of hotel rooms, or sleep on the couch in an impersonal Airbnb.

Our Goal

Our goal is for each Heirloom stay to be a unique travel experience in and of itself. We believe that our luxury rentals facilitate the kinds of memories that ultimately make travel worth it: cooking a meal in the chef’s kitchen. Kicking back on the patio with friends. Gathering together for a family movie night.

When we look back on our own trips, these are the things that we remember most vividly. More importantly, these are the moments we want you to remember.

Heirloom is redefining group travel. Join us in disrupting the way we stay.
