Colleton River cottage description

Located on a 150 acre private island within the gates of Colleton River Plantation*, this cottage sits on one of the prettiest, most unique sites in the Hilton Head area. The 'Devil's Elbow Cottage' is nestled among ancient Live Oak trees overlooking the marshes and waters of the Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge.
Enjoy the best of both worlds. Experience the Lowcountry Bluffton / Hilton Head region of years past yet be a short drive from all of the shopping and amenities of one of the world's foremost resort areas.

This very comfortable cottage has high ceilings and large windows that create a light atmosphere and lets you enjoy this special setting. Built in 1992 and recently updated, this little house sits adjacent to the 'main' house. They are the only houses on the island.

Listen to the warblers in the oaks and the snapping shrimp in the marsh below as you doze off for your afternoon nap on the screened porch. Buy seasonal vegetables from the organic farmer on the island before he goes to the farmer's market.
Set the crab trap from the dock or cast a net for shrimp and enjoy the seafood bounty of the Lowcountry. Sight fish for Redfish from a kayak on the flats of the adjacent islands. See hhionthefly on youtube for fishing video filmed in our back yard!

If the natural world gets to be too much for you it is a ten minute drive to highway 278 and all of the shopping, dining, golf and beaches you could desire. Visit the galleries of Bluffton's old town. Take the beautiful drive to Charleston or spend a day in Savannah or Beaufort.

*Colleton River Plantation is a private community and the amenities are for the use of members and their guests only.

                        My Husband and I stayed a week at Devil's Elbow. Once we arrived I never left until it was time to go. It was the most relaxing, calm, beautiful vacation we have had. We travel A LOT and it is mostly active travel. This vacation was a sit, read, walk, bike, cook, have wine, walk again type of holiday. But...the home is very close to many vacation type of things (shopping, restaurants, historical places, etc). The home was beautiful with everything in order and the cleanest place I have EVER stayed...with quality sheets, towels, etc. We Loved it and plan on returning many times. And...the owners are the BEST...

                        My husband and two children had such a great experience at this cottage. It is a private sanctuary in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of Hilton Head Island. Not only is the cottage itself wonderful, but the setting is awesome. The views are amazing. We loved it and will definitely try to stay there when we return to the area.

                        Our June 2013 stay in the Devils' Elbow Cottage was a very private experience in an exquisitely maintained cottage from which we enjoyed the refreshing sites and sounds of unspoiled virgin land and marsh. One has to appreciate the change in sites and sounds as water retreats and then returns as you view a 180 expance of marsh area, from either a screened porch area or outside. It was quite an awe inspiring co-existance. The grounds are pretty much natural and contain live entertainment for those who have the patience to practice stealth. This great get-away provides easy access to anything between Savanah and Charleston. Have a great time.

                        Devil's Elbow is in an incredibly lovely, private setting. The cottage is most comfortable, with all needed amenities. It is exquisitely decorated. The screened porch is a real magnet. Having the marsh so close was wonderful for launching our kayak. However, vigilance is required for timing paddles around high tide. It was a wonderful week. Two couples are easily accommodated.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your kind comments. These guests chose to kayak right from the cottage which is accessible only on the higher tides. There is access from the dock on the lower tides.

                        We were looking for a nice, quiet vacation rental away from all the congestion on Hilton Head Island and we were not disappointed. The cottage was clean and nicely furnished. It was a great location to come and go from while out sight seeing or golfing. Day trips to Savannah, Charleston and Beaufort were a breeze. The are a variety of very good restaurants in Bluffton. We loved the screened in porch and watching the tide come in and go out on the low country marsh land which is just feet away from the cottage. We would choose this location again!!

                        My parents rented this amazing cottage and my family and I were lucky enough to spend weekends there with them for a month. It is a spectacular setting. The cottage has everything you need and is beautifully furnished. So peaceful yet so convenient to everything you would ever want -- great shops, restaurants, etc. The month went too quickly and we were sad to say goodbye to this cozy retreat where we will have great memories of walking the trails, picking oyster shells, watching sunset after sunset and playing in the mud in the marshes with our daughters. A truly wonderful cottage.

                        The cottage and location exceeded my expectations. The setting is private and the views of the marsh and wildlife are wonderful and yet restaurants and shopping are close by. It is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy nature.Leisa and Peter are perfect host and every minute of our time here was enjoyable. Loved visiting with old friends. Can't wait to come back.

                        The beautiful setting on the island allowed us to watch the sunset every night from the kitchen, the screened-in porch and the Adirondack chairs. Had a wonderful time photographing the wildlife all over. The cottage was newly renovated and very clean and cozy. Took walks everyday around the island and then only 10 - 15 minutes away, we would go shopping and even could play golf and journey to the beaches of Hilton Head. A great location and the owners were extremely accommodating insuring that we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back again.

                        Our family had a terrific time at the cottage. It was just as described everything in excellent condition and in such a great location. Very peaceful and private, yet less than 10 minutes to the main road and all the things you need. The owners were very easy to work with and booking was simple. We look forward to staying here again and highly recommend it.

                        After traveling the five or so miles through the tree-lined paved road and the oyster shell and dirt lane, we were very pleased when we saw the cottage amongst the oaks, palmettos and pines. The cottage is a kind of low-country style we love, and the layout and size were just right for the two of us. There is a second bedroom upstairs with two queen beds for renters with more people in their party. We enjoyed the view of the marsh through the trees, and at night we liked sitting on the screened porch taking in the sounds of the night creatures. If you want a change of pace from the quieter setting around the cottage, activities and restaurants on Hilton Head Island are only about 15-20 minutes away. Grocery stores and malls in Bluffton are closer still. Leisa and Peter were very helpful with info and accommodating our needs. If you desire a peaceful, wilderness setting in a very comfortable cottage, this is a great place to vacation.
