Park your car and walk everywhere. Our location is so convenient that most of our guests just park their car for the entire stay!

A FREE shuttle service - 'DOT' - is also available to take you around downtown Savannah and it has a stop on Bay St., just outside our location.

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.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights and it was perfect. Location is incredible - right on the water...fantastic views! It was so nice to walk down to River Street to shop and then enjoy relaxing in the apartment. Fun to watch the boats go right by our balcony! Easy walk to everything and no need for our car. The apartment looks EXACTLY as the photos show and it was meticulously CLEAN and extremely well maintained. Great kitchen, stocked with all cooking supplies, too. Owner was extremely prompt in responding, was friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. We can't wait to return! A special thanks to Cortney for making our stay most memorable!

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. Wish we could have stayed longer. It is conveniently located, and the pictures are very accurate. The arrangements were easy, and deposit refund was fast. NOTE: The steps are steep and not for anyone with a problem navigating steps. That being said...Enjoy the views!

LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This fabulous home met every need we had. We loved watching the traffic on the river--and having a location so close to everything we wanted to do in the historic district. Do add the parking pass to your rental. It was nice having the car tucked just a few minutes walk away with no worries about meters and towing. The loft is extremely spacious (and super clean); the furniture is very comfortable, and and all the furnishings are tasteful. The kitchen was a dream--and so thoughtfully outfitted for people who don't want to eat every meal out. The owner was very nice and responsive. Don't pass this up--it's every bit "as advertised" (and better!). We New Englanders felt like we were Savannah natives--if only for a brief time. And we loved every minute in this beautiful home and city. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, SPACIOUS FOR TWO PEOPLE.

  • 4 of 5
When you come to Savannah you need to accept the fact that you will do some walking. The location is great to access the riverfront, and within walking distance to the Market Square. The bedroom is on the street side which for those of you who have experienced the riverfront on a Friday or Saturday night is a good thing if you want to go to bed after the "fun" on the river begins. We loved the view from the balcony! There is a thrill when you "cross the bridge" and the stairs are not for the faint hearted - but those notwithstanding it is worth the climb. Well appointed and comfortable. I would stay there again.

LOFT APT ON THE RIVER

  • 5 of 5
This loft apartment was beautiful and soooo soooooo clean. We loved it. We stay in Savannah every winter from 2 to 4 weeks and this apt. is our very favorite. Well appointed, everything we needed and more (I don't cook on vacation). The furniture and bed was very comfortable and the heat was easy to change up and down and worked so well. Water pressure was excellent also. The owner was easy to contact with any questions you may have. All that and a beautiful view from your balconey of the Savannah River and fireworks too! Note: their are 20 stairs up to the apt. from your private bridge over street below so it would not be good for anyone that needed handicapped accessibility.
