The Captain's Cottage sits in the heart of Historic Savannah. Just 2 blocks from the historic River Street; walk the cobblestone and tabby streets just as they were layed in the 1700s. Endless sightseeing, walking and biking opportunities. Savannah is one of the most pedestrian friendly cities in America.

Savannah is easy city to manipulate whether walking, driving, pedicab or public transportation. One of the easiest ways to see Savannah is on of the historic trolly tours; they allow you unlimited on-and-off so that you can enjoy the tour, hop off for some lunch or shopping and back on for another history lesson, doing so as often as you like.

Savannah Shopping is in a class all it's own. You will find some of the finest antiques from around the World; antiques abound from monarchs to cherished family heirlooms. The streets are filled with wonderful boutiques of the latest styles. There is a generous supply of shopping for any taste, age and budget.

There are numerous running, biking and boating opportunities throughout the city. If you are looking for a race to participate several occur throughout the year, from the Rock-n-Roll Marathon to the Bridge Run.

If you are looking for a little slower pace check out one of the many art and house museums; absolutely some of the finest examples of art and homes are available for viewing daily. Enjoy a show at the Lucas Theatre, tour the Green-Meldrim home where General Sherman stayed on his March to the Sea or the lavish Mercer-Williams House on Monterary Square which was featured in the Midnight of the Garden of Good & Evil film; tour the home of Juliette Gordon Lowe, the birthplace of the Girl Scouts of America.

Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated aspects of your trip is dining, Savannah has one of the most outstanding dining selections of any city. The Pink House offers fine dining even a tavern below with wonderful piano music; the Pirates House is located in the oldest building in Savannah; Moon River Brewery has it's own brew selections along with a delicious menu; countless restaurants to suit you breakfast, lunch or dinner needs. Not to mention extensive supply of bars, pubs and nightlife options.

Another one of Savannah's distinct designations, Savannah has been named the 'Most Haunted City in America'. There are numerous ghost tours from trolly, walking, coach and even one riding in a hearse. A fun and entertaining experience to learn of Savannah's haunted tales.

I am glad to help you plan your visit to the city and share my personal favorites.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Charles & Faye purchased the home in 2012 and renovated the cottage from top to bottom. We grew up in rural South Georgia and both love history, historic homes & furnishings. On a trip home from the beach ~10 years ago, Faye and I got our first dose of Savannah; we immediately fell in love the with charm and beauty of the City. For the next several years we would visit and dream of one day having our on piece of Savannah. The Captain's Cottage is now that piece for us; we enjoy visiting Savannah every chance we get as well as having the opportunity to share our home with you. Not only do we enjoy Savannah, but so do our 3 beagles, Belle, Bug and Scout. They love strolling the streets and visiting the squares; most of all they love the attention they attract from their new friends they met along the way. Scout's favorite thing is to stand on the porch and greet the walking tours; he tries to see how many passersby he can sucker into a pet or tell him how cute he is.... We hope you enjoy our home & Savannah just as much as we do and look forward to being available to offer suggestions of our personal favorites.

Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
Each time Faye and I visited Savannah we found ourselves walking through Washington Square; it is magnetic, peaceful and beautifully maintained with manicured landscape. So when we talked about purchasing a property we knew the perfect home would be near our favorite square, Washington Square. After months of watching the internet listings we contacted realtor, Mathew Allen. In talking with Matthew we decided to look at 2 homes nearby; it took just one visit to the Captain's Cottage for us to know this was it. It was exactly what wished for, 2 houses off Washington Square, 2b/2b, single story with a courtyard..... the perfect choice for us and our Beagles.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Captain's Cottage is in the heart of the Landmark District, the oldest section of Savannah. Just 2 blocks from the famous River Street; easy walk to Broughton Street for shopping and dining; there are literally more restaurants within walking distance than I can name. Every visitor coming to Savannah will visit the Landmark District so stay in the heart of the points of interest. Our tree-lined street is one of the most beautiful in Savannah. There is no better street for strolling and enjoying the beautiful architecture, warm southern breezes and historic charm. It will take just one visit to see why Savannah is named the 'Hostess City'.
