Warm southern hospitality is what she does best.. the reason why Beth Lamm was chosen as the 'Personality Behind the Home' in the Carolina's by this website.
Beth is a hands-on owner and caters to the needs of her guests. No agency involvement. She focuses on creature comforts, a clean home, high quality bedding and linens and a granite stainless kitchen.
Lamm's End just underwent a facelift to include remodeled granite/tiled bathrooms, new linens, new rugs and wood floors.. Lamm's End, Lamm's End Cottage and Lamm's End Bungalow are among the most well-reviewed homes on Folly Beach with many return guests. We encourage you to read the guest entered reviews of her homes.
This property is located along the most captivating stretch of Folly Beach. Out front... the ocean. Out back... our dock, Morris Island Light House, Folly River, and Charleston Harbor. The views do not get any better than this.
Enjoy the sights, sounds and ambiance of the ocean sipping morning coffee rocking on the front porch--- and for the early birds watching the sunrise. At the end of the day, stretch out and relax on the back porch with your favorite beverage and enjoy the hot pink, setting sun over the Folly River.
Creative cooks are not disappointed. The granite/stainless kitchen is well-equipped with appropriate pots, pans, oils, spices and gadgets to easily whip up a delicious meal from the abundance of fresh caught seafood and local produce available on the island.
Located across the street from the beach, Lamm's End is a reverse plan with the living room, dining room and kitchen areas on the top floor.. all having great views of either the ocean, Folly River or both! A small bedroom behind the living area has it's own private bath.
The downstairs includes the master bedroom & a private bath., two more bedrooms, a bath and a full sized laundry. The house sleeps eight.
High speed internet available as well as proper IPOD connections to enjoy your own music collection. Please note that there are minimum stays for holiday weeks and there is an extra charge for holidays.
Smaller groups might also want to consider our other two homes on Folly. 'Lamm's End Cottage' sleeps 7 and 'Lamm's End Beach Bungalow' sleeps 6. Both the cottage and beach bungalow have great access to the beach and downtown Folly Beach.
Due to the comfort and health of our family and guests, there is a STRICT non-smoking policy anywhere on the premises. NO house parties or weddings permitted under ANY circumstances. The address of 'Lamm's End' is 1656 East Ashley Avenue.

Perhaps the best way to sum up Folly is that it is not Disney. An 11-mile drive from historic Charleston, it has an eclectic local flavor which embraces artists, surfers and wealthy boomer's alike! Remember, the operative word on Folly is laid back so if you are looking for a relaxing vacation this is it.
'Lamm's End' is located at the northern end of the island. We are a short stroll to the old coastguard station, which is a fabulous place to view the Morris Lighthouse and to spot dolphin frolicking in the ocean. This part of Folly is hypnotic with views of not only the ocean... but equally and some say more amazing views of the Folly River. 'Lamm's End' is architecturally designed to maximize ocean and river views.
The home was extensively remodeled this spring. We also added the crabbing pier at the back of the property which is a great spot to relax and enjoy views of the marsh and un-inhabited Morris Island.
Other Activities: Closest beach to the shops and restaurants of Charleston
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Beth looked for beach property from the coast of NC to Georgia for 2 years. The minute she drove on to Folly, it felt perfect. Relaxed, laid-back and only 11 miles from Charleston, SC! Lamm's End was the second house she looked at that day and before she walked in she knew this was it. Standing on the back porch sold her. The views are that amazing. Back in Florence, SC ...hubby, Jim has just come in from a busy overnight in the ER when Beth called to tell him she'd finally found the beach and house and wanted to buy it there and then. 'Can't it wait till the weekend when I can see it?' he asked. 'Nope... gotta do it now. It will be sold before you get here'. Exhausted, Jim gave in and the rest as they say is history. Beth just obtained her real estate license and is thrilled to pursue her passion for real estate in Florence, SC. Jim and Beth are proud parents of college students. Danny is a Midshipmen at USNA. Helen is a freshman at Wofford College.
The Lamm Fam loves to travel, they are pictured in Mendoza, Argentina. Just a year before another South Carolinian discovered the sensual delights of Buenos Aires! But their favorite spot on the planet remains Folly Beach!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: There is no place like Folly. The island includes an eclectic mix of people ... from bohemian artists, to 20-something surfer dudes, to wealthy retired boomers... to regular Moms, Dads and their kids. You can't tell them apart on Folly... tee shirts, flip, flops and shorts are the dress code. They all come to enjoy a beautiful, natural island and a laid-back island lifestyle. Likewise, Folly also has a wide range of housing from multi-million dollar homes to charming beach cottages that have been in southern families for many generations. Folly is a fresh relief from the manicured, Disney-like beaches that so many vacation communities have become. If a golf-gated community is what you're looking for, Folly is not the place for you.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Beth is a completely hands-on owner. No management company... just one on one with Beth. Lamm's End and Lamm's End Cottage are improved constantly. Beth pays close attention to creature comforts... comfortable beds, black out curtains to ensure a good night's sleep, high thread count all cotton bedding, down comforters. This is a turn-key operation. Everything --- from toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, dish & dishwashing soap, hand soap, spices--- is provided. The family loves to cook and the kitchen reflects that. The on-line reviews demonstrate many years of happy, satisfied, returning guests.
