The owners of Maggie’s Cottage – Mary & Henry Johnson — generously shared memories, deep feelings and family history with us
about this lovely Saban cottage, describing it as:
“Picturesque, charming, historical. The cottage was originally built in 1916 by Henry’s grandparents, Cohone (“Jack”) and Magdalen (“Maggie”) Johnson. We have been very proud to be the third generation of owners in the family.
Maggie and Jack were born on Saba and had five children, four boys and one girl.
Maggie (1892-1970) was a homemaker and Jack (1885-1950) worked as a Quartermaster on a ship that sailed between St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and New York. It was a tough life.
The best time of day is sunrise to watch the sun coming up over the vast ocean and surrounding islands. Stunning!
We love Saba’s uniqueness. Solitude. The night sky. The gentle breeze. The relaxed feeling of being far away on a tiny, remote tropical island without the rush of tourists or commercialism. Picking fruit off a tree on a leisurely walk. Visiting family and friends and enjoying recipes handed down for centuries. Sitting on the porch with a cup of tea while a cloud passes right through you. And of course, our rich family history.
We sincerely hope that the new owners will enjoy the honor of becoming the next caretakers of a historical treasure; a cottage built by true pioneers that was filled with family, love and laughter; that saw its share of hardships and heartache, but remained steadfast through every storm.”
