Historic information from the owner:
This five story building was constructed in 1859 by John Stoddard, two years before the outbreak of the American Civil War. Collectively, the block of buildings is known as Stoddard's Lower Range. Construction is joisted masonry with heart pine beams and floors and Okefenokee cypress window frames. The walls of the first three levels consist not only of Savannah Gray brick but also of ship ballaststone and coral. Ships arriving in the port would offload ballast replacing it with cotton and naval stores for the homeward bound leg of their voyage. The discarded ballast material was abundant and less expensive than brick. Iron bridges provided not only access to the building's upper stories but also were used by the Factors to inspect and bid on the cotton crop. The street name, Factor's Walk derives from this practice.
The building was purchased by my family from John Stoddard's great grandson in 1945. At one time, 226 E Bay was the residence of the captain of the port of Savannah, Frank Spenser
and his wife Anna. I recall the captain's homage to his seafaring days, a port hole in the front door. Mrs. Spenser continued to reside in the apartment after Captain Spenser's death until the early 1960's. The painting on the mantel, 'Anna's Walk' was named in her honor by the artist, Ray Ellis. After Mrs. Spenser, the Savannah artist Augusta Olesheig occupied the apartment as her residence and studio.
Enjoy your stay.
My husband and I stayed here for a couple days to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. It was very clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed - including washer and dryer in unit which was nice since it rained! The balcony/river view was awesome being in the heart of everything. And my husband enjoyed watching the huge barge ships pass by. We ate at a few different places, but our most memorable meals were at The Cotton Exchange right underneath the condo - amazing shrimp n grits! And the pizza at Vinnie Van Go Go's (per Cortney's recommendation) was AWESOME! We did do the Old Pink House for our anniversary dinner which was nice as well. We did a trolley tour which picked up right underneath the condo - so that was convenient. Overall a very lovely stay, and if we find ourselves back in Savannah at any point in time, we will come back!
I stayed here for my wedding weekend and couldn't ask for a better place! It's conveniently located right downtown and within walking distance to so many great places. The large open living room provided a great place for everyone to hang out and then for our bridal party to get ready on wedding day. The sea blue wall color in the bedroom even made for beautiful wedding photos as well! As they showed, there is a large staircase at the entrance of the condo so just be aware of that. We knew it was there and expected it so it was fine for everyone it my group. I'd highly recommend this condo and Courtney was fantastic to work with!
Great place to stay in Savannah. The location puts you near all of the places to visit.
I loved staying in this wonderful place. It was beautifully renovated in an old building loaded with charm and character. The interior was light filled and spacious nicely furnished and very well stocked. I loved the balcony being able to sit out and watch the action below on River St as well as the big cargo ships in and out of the harbor.
Everything is within walking distance..beware your sweet tooth as the apt is directly above a candy shop and the scent of melting chocolate wafting up is tough to resist. Check in was a breeze though actually finding the apt was a bit of a hassle for me bc I couldn't find any parking the day I arrived. The owner provides a parking pass for a small fee but one has to park and enter the apt the first time to get it. I got a bit lost finding the parking garage but once there never found it necessary to move the car again. The day I left was cold and rainy so I just borrowed the owners umbrella, walked to the garage, and was able the find parking in front this time to return the key. Though River Street was noisy at night, the apt was nice and quiet bc the spacious bedroom is on the back side of the street and noise was never a problem. The place was also spotless with nice quality cookware,a washer dryer, and thoughtful additional niceties that made my stay like being a guest in a friends home.
I will definitely be back.
This place is much larger than it appears in the photos. We stayed for a week over the St Patricks Day holiday week. Altough it was rather loud outside our balcony during the festivities, there was no better place to watch the shenanigans as well as the boats pass by on the river. The parade passed by right in front of the apartment for easy viewing. Easy walking distance to everything. I'd love to buy the place, that's how much we loved it! And a big thank you to Courtney from the Griswolds in Savannah!! :)
