"May 30 through June 5, my son, his wife, their two children, their Nanal, and my husband and I spent the week staying in the cottage at Camelot Ranch. We had the most relaxing vacation we have had in years. We leisurely slept late each morning. So quiet and peaceful. We fixed breakfast together each morning. We went for a morning ride about 10:30 a.m. and rode for two hours. We would return and fix lunch together and then head to the private beach, Hunting Island Beach, and even went to horse Island to see the wild horses, or went sight seeing in Beaufort or to the Coffin Mansion where Forest Gump was filmed. We would eat out for supper or come back and grill out on the deck. It was so relaxing not feeling rushed to do anything. We would evening ride our horses and enjoy the sunset on the beach while the horses ventured out farther and farther into the water each time we rode the beach. It was so beautiful and relaxing we look forward to coming again.
The cottage is decorated with antiques, charming art work, rooms are clean and the beds are so very comfortable. The kitchen is furnished with just about anything you might need except a large pot for cooking crab legs or corn on the cob. We bought a pot for that since we love cooking together. Sheets, Blanket, Trash bags, toilet paper, dish washing liquid, laundry detergent, paper towels, charcoal for the grill and even lighter fluid was provided. There are some seasoning, salt, and pepper provided. We have vacationed many times, but we have never been provided with so much. Mark saw to it that anything we needed was provided immediately.
You are ask to clean up or cover with sand any droppings from your horses, but they even offered to go do this for us if we came back and told them we needed assistance. We kept the grazing pins clean that were provided for our horses right next to the cottage, but they offered to come and suck up any horse dropping with a sucking machine. We took hay and grain, but that is also available if you run out or do not have the room to haul these items. There are two different feed stores close by on your way to Beaufort, S.C. There are restaurants that are close and a wonderful seafood market where you can buy the catches of the day if you prefer to cook your own as we did several times. You will have to buy your groceries in Beaufort which is 20 to 30 minutes away from the cottage. We highly recommend Camelot Farms."
