About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Dixie Farms Plantation is located at the heart of the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and approximately 20 minutes north of historic Charleston, South Carolina. This unique getaway is located on the Intracoastal Waterway and consists of 10 acres of land, a comfortable home with wrap-around porches, a private dock, and private boat landing.

The property was first settled by the Shackelford family in the mid 1700's, and several head stones bearing the 'Shackelford' name remain on the property today. The property has been owned by the family of the late Judge Paul A. Foster of Mount Pleasant for nearly 3 decades now.

Situated on the Intracoastal Waterway just south of the scenic fishing village of McClellanville, this property is an outdoorsman's paradise. Travelers from all across the globe visit this unique area to fish for Spottail Bass (Redfish), Trout, Flounder, King Mackerel, Tarpon, Sailfish, Marlin, and an exhaustive list of other species. Hunters make the trip to the Lowcountry of South Carolina to hunt Ducks, Whitetail Deer, Doves, Turkeys, and Wild Hogs.

Others stay with us to visit the untouched, pristine beaches of our barrier islands and view the countless species of flora and fauna. From Dixie Farms Plantation, one can access and experience the natural beauty and bounty of the legendary South Carolina Lowcountry.

Stay at Dixie Farms Plantation just once, and I bet we'll see you for years to come.
