Property description

No need to drive to town; simply walk to restaurants, to the antique stores or to the waterpark located along the bay where various activities take place every weekend. Enjoy breakfast on the screened-in front porch and watch squirrels climb moss-covered oak trees. Beautifully decked out with fine china and white country french furniture, the bungalow is newly updated and has all hardwood floors. Kitchen is completely stocked with every appliance you could want and enough pots and pans to cook up a feast. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans for comfortable sleeping, bedside lamps for reading and plush pillowtop mattresses. The TV room has a big screen tv and double french doors that lead onto the back yard deck, which steps down to the cobble stone paved patio.

Car: Not Necessary

Almost every weekend Beaufort hosts various activities held in the Waterpark overlooking the Bay of the Atlantic Ocean. During those times, there is a fight for parking but when staying at the house you can walk because the Waterpark is as close to the house as if you drove and walked to your car.

Also, if you want to enjoy the tour of homes held annually in Beaufort in October, there is no need to drive and catch the shuttle. Simply walk the tour because this vacation rental is located in the same vicinity as those included in the tour.

If you enjoy antiquing, you can walk to the antique stores, as most of them are located in downtown Beaufort, which is less than a mile from then house.

You will only need your car if you want to cross the big bridge and drive out to any of the islands for beach access.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Alan and I, both transplants to the south (he from Virginia, me from out west) share a love of fine old houses, antique furniture and travelling to Italy. We have entertained many friends in the house in Beaufort, as evidenced by the warm spirit that blesses the house.

Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
This property was bought on a whim while vacationing on Harbor Island. Having locked ourselves out of the condo we were renting at the time, we began to page through real estate books while waiting for the office to fetch a key to open the locked condo. The house beckoned and we bought it (as soon as we returned to the locked condo and showered, or course).

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
How 'Dana's Cottage' got it's name: Read the story catalogued in a scrapbook located in the dining room of the house. Suffice it to say: When I first stepped foot in the Beaufort house it felt very much like Aunt Dana's house. You will have to read the complete story about Aunt Dana to find out why I named the house after her.
