Amazing waterfront views from our balcony overlooking River Street and the Savannah River. Watch the people and activity below as boats and cargo ships pass by on the river.

Renovated large, open space with original heart pine floors, exposed brick walls, fully equipped kitchen, plantation shutters and french doors to the balcony with a view of the Savannah River and River Street below. All the comforts of home with WiFi, HDTV, luxury linens, laundry room, and more.

A short walk to everything including Savannah's City Market, Ellis Square, Paula Deen's 'Lady & Sons' and 'The Olde Pink House' restaurants. Antique stores, museums, and over 100 shops, restaurants, and boutiques that line River Street in beautiful downtown Savannah.

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.

Notes to guests:

~ This unit is on the second floor and has a flight of 22 stairs (please see photos). It is not wheelchair accessible or appropriate for young children.

~ The balcony is historic. Please use at your own risk/discretion.

~ The address is 226 E. Bay St. 31401. It is on the north side of Bay St. between Abercorn and Lincoln St. Turn on the "Lincoln St Ramp" entrance (but don't go down the ramp). The apartment is straight ahead and to the right.

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.

Perfect location, and the apartment was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Park your car and forget about it until it is time to leave. There is so much to see all within a short walk. So many places to shop eat and a never ending history lesson. We loved the location of the apartment and the views were spectacular. Perfect place to stay while visiting Savannah. I could go on forever talking about how great the experience was ,just like the memories will last my family.

Perfect anniversary getaway!

My husband and I went to Savannah to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. This condo was the perfect place to relax each day after exploring everything Savannah has to offer! The condo is very roomy and the view from the balcony is PERFECTION!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location, convenient to the restaurants and attractions of the River St area. Will be booking this place again on my next Savannah trip. The balcony over looking the river was icing on the cake. Affordable with an easy check in & out process.

perfection is just 22 steps away

  • 5 of 5

My second stay as a guest in this ( "everything great place " ) a place of awe as we tour one of THE best places in the country to visit... we counted 25 cargo giants sometime loaded 8 high with land / sea trailers going in and out of port... be sure you visit a 17th century cemetery and see where men fought duels sometime over little or nothing....then go to Clears on Abercorn for lunch a place where a lot of locals go and sample one of their to die for sandwiches ....have fun, bring beer

Better than our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Having to delay this trip due to Hurricane Mathew in October, I had plenty of time to view this property online. It looked beautiful, but when we arrived, we were blown away. The loft was comfortable with an lovely understated elegance. It was also much larger than we were expecting. It was equipped with everything including a keureg with coffee pods and a hairdryer. Non-perishables were even left in the refrigerator from past guests. Very helpful!

The location was the absolute best part. We did not rent a car. We walked everywhere and everything was accessible. Every single time we crossed the wooden walkway to enter the apartment, we muttered, "Yes, we live here!"

Savannah is always amazing! We discovered the rooftop bar at the Bohemium and it became our very favorite late night spot! Romantic and fun!

I have to also mention the apartment's small balcony overlooking the river. My husband spent countless hours out there watching the cargo ships and the action on River St. The view is just spectacular!

If you are traveling to Savannah and this property is available, you need to rent it! You will have the absolute best vacation if you do!
