About Charles Owens
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 Charles Owens 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.
What makes this cottage unique
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'.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Your house is beautiful. Everything at your fingertips to make your stay so enjoyable. My friends and I toured the city and our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed the park just walking distance from the house and spent alot of evenings there just admiring the beauty of the surroundings.
Again, I have stayed alot of places but, your house is first on my list. If we are ever in the area again that is where we would like to stay. Our concern at first was the parking but, we bought the pass and stayed in front of the house the whole time and walked most places where we wanted to go..
