  • Great stay for our Marines graduation!

    "Great house for a large family to relax during a trip to Parris Island. We really enjoyed unwinding from the long days on the Depot at this residence. The large dining and family rooms were perfect for our gathering."

  • Great location

    "My family spent the past weekend at the Air Show and the location of the cottage was perfect, not only for the air show, but also for wandering around downtown and visiting the other islands. The owner is super helpful in making your stay as worry free as possible. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are visiting Beaufort. We certainly hope to be back!"

  • Magical Cottage!

    "This cottage is more than charming, it is magical! The trees on the property literally had us all speechless. It completely takes your breath away the beauty of the setting of the charming cottage. The park next door is absolutely beautiful as well and you cannot beat the proximity of the cottage to everything else you'd want to do in Beaufort. Lastly, we could not have had more hospitable hosts. Laura was very welcoming and friendly, making sure we had everything we needed and that we were all comfortable while staying at the cottage. We'll definitely stay here any time we're in Beaufort!"

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.
