Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Wild Bluff on the Edisto is nestled on a high bluff hidden among the trees and wildlife overlooking the longest free flowing black water river in North America. Designed by landscape architect Robert E. Marvin, this 3-level glass house, built of post and beam construction, attracts those searching for a peaceful and relaxing experience. Characterized by its serenity, the brightest light may be the moon’s reflection off the flowing river. Wild Bluff has been featured in Southern Living magazine as a featured house design.

AVAILABLE ACTIVITIES: Canoeing, kayaking, reading, relaxing, fishing from the dock, and searching for shark's teeth along the bottom of the river; Wild Bluff is a perfect retreat for authors as well as a great winter weekend away from snow. This section of the Edisto is perfect for small boats, canoes and kayaks but not recommended for larger boats, jet skis, or water skiing. LINKS: Please see the links at the bottom of the page for more information on the Edisto River and Walterboro's South Carolina Artisans Center.

LOCATION: Wild Bluff is located off I-95 (10 minutes)on Highway 15 at Canady’s, SC between St. George and Walterboro. Additionally, Wild Bluff is close to Charleston (1 hour, passing Middleton Gardens on 61 on the way), Savannah (1 hour and 15 minutes), Columbia (1 hour 15 minutes), and Beaufort (1 hour).

AMENITIES:

1 Queen , 1 full bed, 2 single beds, 2 couches

1 ½ bathrooms

Large screen porch nestled on the bank of the Edisto

Lighted dock with small patio and swing

YOUNG CHILDREN: While Wild Bluff is an ideal family getaway, many of its most enjoyable features may also put young children (5 or younger) at risk for injury, including: spiral stairway, large sliding glass windows (overlooking the river); and much of the outside areas adjacent to the river (atop a steep incline in many areas). Additionally, the house is not equipped with baby-safe protections such as socket plugs, etc. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

DOGS: Pets are welcome, but for similar reasons, we caution pet owners of potential risks (as our dogs find their way to the river within minutes of arriving). Pets not accustomed to rivers or surrounding woods may require additional supervision; thus, we ask owners to exercise caution and plan accordingly (pets are welcome to be kept in the house, off the furniture, but preferably on the screened porch). Due to the wooded area, fleas and ticks will likely be in the woods, be certain your dog is properly treated for fleas and ticks. We charge a $25 flat pet fee (not per pet). Please contact me with any questions or concerns. That said, our dogs absolutely love it! RENTER MAY BRING PETS AT THEIR OWN RISK. OWNER IS NOT LIABLE FOR INJURY, ILLNESS, OR OTHER HARM THAT MAY OCCUR TO PETS WHILE AT WILD BLUFF OR ITS SURROUNDINGS.

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY / AGE / MINIMUM STAY: The maximum number of adult guests is limited to eight (8) persons. However, upon owner’s express consent, additional adult guests may be permitted subject to an additional charge or $10.00 per person per night for guests in addition to eight (8) will be assessed. Renter must be at least twenty-five (25) years old. THIS PROPERTY REQUIRES A THREE (3) NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.

PAYMENT: An advance payment equal to 50% of the rental rate is required to secure the rental spot. Payment can be made by cashiers checks or personal checks payable to WESLEY HENDERSON. The balance of rent is due fourteen (14) days before your arrival date.

LIABILITY: Guests are liable for any damage to any part of the owner's property not due to normal wear and tear.

CANCELLATIONS: Sixty days notice is required for cancellations without incurring any penalties. Cancellations made within sixty days of the reservation will forfeit half of the rental amount used to secure the rental.

A fascinating house and lovely relaxing experience!

  • 4 of 5

We fell in love with the house and actually enjoyed the whole "unplugged" experience. We expected rustic so were prepared but my only complaint is that the shower stall needs serious updating. The A/C worked great despite the outside temps in the 90's. We got into the habit of cooking breakfast & lunch at the cabin and eating dinner out at restaurants in Walterboro. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of some of the restaurants in the area. Next visit I would probably opt for a cooler time of year so that we could enjoy the outdoor features more and hopefully see more wildlife. If you choose the beautiful downstairs sleeping area with a view of the river, be prepared for an early morning wake-up when the sun rises and shines directly through the windows. We loved that the property was pet-friendly and brought a couple of folding "exercise pens" to make a small fenced area for the dogs outside to make sure that they stayed safe and contained when outdoors. Thanks for providing a setting for a wonderful relaxing visit!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time! We're sorry about the inconvenience with the walkway; it's just too dangerous to allow visitors to use until we get it fixed. We are working hard to get a contractor to fix it, but that's been more challengin than we would have hoped. We're hoping it will be fixed in the next few weeks.
