  • PERFECT, PERFECT !!

    "The cottage is very very nice, great location, peaceful and great views from the deck. It is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need and more. The owners are great to deal with and very helpful, having the use of their pass for Hunting Island Park was appreciated. If you are looking for 5 star place in the Beaufort area to stay this is it....Thank You"

  • A wonderful house.

    "We have just returned home from our second stay in Craven House. The house is a beautiful Victorian house (one of the Painted Ladies of Beaufort) located on a quiet street in the historic point. It is comfortably and charmingly furnished, very clean and excellently equipped and feels like a home rather than a rental. One of our favourite activities was to sit on the veranda watching and listening to the horse drawn carriage tours passing by. Beaufort's beautiful waterfront park, shops and restaurants galore are all within an easy walk. The owners are very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. We loved staying there and look forward to returning next year."

  • We Loved It!!!

    "We absolutely loved the Pigeon's Nest. Yes, it is teeny tiny. No, we never wanted to leave! Diane is an amiable caretaker and guide to the area. We felt at home as soon as we arrived! The three little Chihuahuas loved exploring the lovely yard within the picket fence, and what a nice place to sit in the sun! Pigeon Point is a boat launch just down the neighborhood road. Since we brought our kayaks and love to spot dolphins, this was just perfect! We would definitely want to go for another week long stay!"

Beaufort Travel Tips

The city of Beaufort, South Carolina, is the second-oldest in the state and was chartered in 1711. It's located on Port Royal Island in the South Carolina Lowcountry and offers visitors breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery and antebellum architecture.

Beaufort Attractions

Approximately 304 acres of Beaufort have been designated as a National Historic Landmark, all located in the downtown historic district. Here you'll find the remnants of the original English colonial settlement. History buffs will want to hang out around downtown Beaufort to learn more about the buildings that still stand and their past. Check out Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour for a look at Old Beaufort.

When you want to visit the beach during your stay in Beaufort, head to Hunting Island State Park. It's the state's most popular park and attracts more than 1 million visitors each year. There are 5 miles of beach as well as thousands of acres of marsh, tidal creeks and maritime forests. Also at the park is the Hunting Island Lighthouse that stands at 170 feet tall and dates back to the 1870s. When you venture to the top, you'll find beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding areas.

Things to Do"'

Events: There are several events held in Beaufort each year, all of which are a great source of fun to visitors who are in town. The Gullah Festival is a multi-day celebration of the Gullah heritage, the group of African Americans who lived here in years past and preserved the cultural and linguistic characteristics of their heritage. The festival is held each May and highlights local and regional talents as well as art and history exhibits. The Beaufort Shrimp Festival celebrates the Lowcountry's coastlines, rich history and, of course, plethora of shrimp. When you visit in October, head to Waterfront Park for music, fun and shrimp galore. There's also the blessing of the shrimp fleet, a golf tournament and a 5K run/walk. Taste of Beaufort is a three-day event that celebrates the city's food. The festival also celebrates Earth Day and offers wine tastings, contests and music. The Beaufort Water Festival hosts a beauty pageant, a ball and fishing and golf tournaments.

Golf: Thanks to Beaufort's moderate climate, you can enjoy a round of golf no matter what time of year you visit. There are two courses here for golfers of all skill levels including the Callawassie Island Club and the Dataw Island Club.

Arts and Culture: The art scene is a big part of Beaufort and art galleries and craft shops are found throughout the city. Musicians, actors, authors and jewelry artisans call Beaufort home and much of the local entertainment, such as the Beaufort Orchestra, puts on Gullah-inspired productions at the University of South Carolina Beaufort's Performing Arts Center.
