Historic Savannah Cottage

This little home in Savannah, Georgia is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built 200 years ago by John Ballon, “a free man of color”. Freeman’s Cottage is located between Warren and Washington Squares and has a scenic garden terrace.

The full bath has a walk-in shower and a large wooden vanity. The master bedroom is upstairs and has a queen size bed to relax in after a busy day of exploring. The beams in the upstairs bedroom loft are all hand-numbered tree lengths so they knew the placement during construction. The furniture here is a nice mix of modern and vintage and creates a cozy feel.

The beautiful wood in the living area makes the room warm and inviting. The living room also has vintage furniture – a sofa, a couple of chairs, lamps, end tables, and artwork. The room is flooded with light and opens to the kitchen, which shows a beautiful original fireplace. The kitchen is light blue and outfitted with stained wood cabinets and every new appliance you can think of – comfort is most important here. The small dining area is against a glass wall that offers the best view of the secluded private patio. Here you can also see an elegant working fireplace with a metal screen.
