About Jacqueline Mason
I grew up and went to college in Michigan. In 2001 I came to savannah with my sister for a long weekend over my birthday. I sat in Chippewa square drinking a cup of coffee and told my sister that Savannah was my future, she laughed. I returned to Michigan, sold my house, quit my job, put my dog in the car and moved to Savannah. I didn't know one person. I have never been sorry, not for one minute. Within 2 years both my mother and sister also moved to Savannah. Since then 2 more of my close friends have also moved to Savannah. I guess its contagious.
Jacqueline Mason purchased this cottage in 2001
Why Jacqueline Mason chose Savannah
When I visited Savannah the very first time, my sister and I walked past the front house over and over again. It was for sale, and we loved it. When I returned to Savannah, we decided my sister would buy the front house which had been turned into 4 apartments, sell me the back house and eventually she too would move to Savannah.
Since I didn't know anyone when I arrived I made a net work of friends by hosting a dinner party every single Saturday night for a year. Sometimes upwards of 35 people would show up for dinner and eat in the courtyard. That entire year my little carriage house was under renovation, but it didn't stop us. I continued to host frequent dinner parties and this small but happy home became the the meeting place for many people. I only recently moved out of my little house to get married, and look forward to making my new house, one block away, into the same kind of happy home that brought so many people together.
What makes this cottage unique
Originally the carriage house was barely livable. The downstairs was broken up into 4 rooms the kitchen was a dorm refrigerator, and a 2 burner stove. That didn't scare me because I have a degree in interior design, and a beautiful courtyard. I personally worked on my little house taking out walls, ceilings, etc. I had a vision of what it would look like and just kept moving in that direction. I think if it hadn't been for the courtyard I would have felt differently. Even while the house was packed to the rafters while under construction I used the courtyard as a place of peace. In Savannah we spend so much of our lives outdoors. I wrote the first chapter of my novel sitting in that courtyard. It is definitely a place where I find inspiration. Savannah is full of magic, and that courtyard is the perfect place for it to manifest.
Guestbook comments from the owner
we really enjoyed your carriage house with it's terrific location and can't thank you enough for providing such a beautiful place to stay. We enjoyed our day in Savannah yesterday, plenty of walking, some new shoes for **** then dinner and drinks out with my Aunt who lives about two blocks away on Taylor Street but not before we all enjoyed a bottle of wine in your courtyard. We would definitely like to come back up soon!
