Savannah house description

Hearken back to simpler time with a stay in the Captain's Quarters, a fully-restored downtown property within an easy walk or bike ride to Savannah's most popular venues, including River Street, beautiful Forsyth Park, the Juliet Gordon Low House and other fine museums, City Market and an array of dining, shopping and entertainment options.

The Captain's Quarters, built in 1887, features tasteful furnishings, professionally-chosen, nautically-themed decor and newly-restored surroundings. It has two bedrooms, each with its own bath, plus spacious living and dining areas, a working wood fireplace and a fully-equipped kitchen capable of producing cuisine from the simple to the sublime! In addition to the regular sleeping arrangements, the property features a brand-new leather sleep sofa downstairs and, upstairs in a beamed loft, a super-thick, double-sized futon to comfortably sleep up to four additional individuals.


Back in its historic heyday, Savannah was a bustling seaport town. 'Cotton was King,' and the ship captains who successfully delivered this precious commodity into the hands of mill owners in New England and Europe often possessed more money than time on land to spend it! But from their voyages to the Far East, they brought back silks and china; from Europe, the latest fashions for women and men. During their infrequent stays on terra firma, they furnished their houses with reminders of life on the open sea and unique treasures from their travels afar. Transport yourself back in time--but with all the comforts and conveniences of today! During your stay the Captain's Quarters, you'll be well-positioned to fully enjoy the mystique of author John Berendt's 'Garden of Good and Evil,' wandering among Savannah's famous Spanish-moss draped squares, trying its unique local cuisine, and exploring the fascinating and sometimes chilling stories of its colorful past and present.

During your stay in this property, you can enjoy Savannah's warm year-round temperatures in the home's private courtyard, featuring lush tropical plantings, and ample deck and covered patio seating. Select a book from the extensive collection provided and kick back for a good long read, or pack a picnic and stroll two blocks over to the lush lawns by the Forsyth Park fountain for an afternoon or evening idyll. Watch the ships make their way up the river, browse the many quaint shops and galleries downtown and enjoy the vibrant nightlife of River Street and City Market--it's all right here!

In addition, the Captain's Quarters has a private roof deck for stargazing, sunbathing, reading or just catching a nap! The property also enjoys plenty of free, on-street parking (not always a given in Savannah's busy downtown!)
