Why Allen Brooker chose The Bluff
This house is a "Freedman's Cottage", which were built by the U.S. government for freed slaves in the late 19th and early 20th century. This cottage, built in 1900, is listed on the Beaufort historic registry. We both felt this house was in a great location, and with some care and TLC, could be made into a real showplace!
What makes this Cottage unique
Walking distance from downtown Beaufort, a wonderful view of Bay Street and the Beaufort River, and a very quiet, private setting.

A beautifully renovated, very comfortable cottage
A lovely few days and excellent hosts. Allen called in to say hello and is at the end of a telephone to answer any questions, otherwise he and Dawn do not intrude at all. The information pack sent prior to arrival tells you everything you need. The house itself has been finished to the highest specifications and is extremely well equipped. Everything is brand new, the beds extremely comfortable, the ensuite bathrooms again very well appointed with excellent showers and the kitchen lacks nothing. The house is well located, both for ease of access in and out of town and for town centre restaurants and the islands. Also it is just an hour away from Savannah and just slightly longer to Charleston.
Thank you again Allen and Dawn, we would recommend your lovely house to anyone and, if we are ever back in Beaufort we know where to come.
We stayed May10-14, 2018. The place was very nice. Everything you needed was available. Can’t wait until our return.
We enjoyed our short stay at King's Cottage very much! The décor was "first class" and we felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. The cottage was immaculate too. It was great bringing our "four legged child" as we never leave home without her. It was very close to the waterfront which was a big plus too. My only suggestion is that it would be nice to have some summer weight bed covers for the warm weather. We look forward to returning for another visit to beautiful Beaufort and King's Cottage.
This property is great! House is beautiful and the location is perfect.
This is a super location. It’s convenient to downtown and the waterfront.
It’s a wonderful old house that has been restored to show off all of its charm and character, while having every convenience you could want. Loved the front porch with its swings and rockers... the screened in back porch is awefully nice too. Good off-street parking. Nice backyard with a bbq area. Lots of books on the local area. Couldn’t ask for more.
The owners, Allen and Dawn, are great too! They did everything possible to make our stay a pleasure.
One of the best!
This is one of the best we have stayed in over our many rentals. Convenient walking distance to town, beautifully decorated, wonderful kitchen for cooking and well-appointed. Our four nights with our traveling buddies were very comfortable with good beds and very quiet.
Thank you for the kind words Carolyn... we enjoyed having you as our guests. We hope you come to visit again soon!
Allen and Dawn
Charming cottage in a great location!
We loved our stay in this comfortable cottage with so much character. Allen and Dawn thought of everything and the location was so convenient to historic Beaufort and the surrounding islands. We definitely plan to come back!
