Welcome to the Cottage by the Historic Arsenal! Located at 404 Scott Street. This 2 BR/1.5BA was renovated in 2010. This cottage was our weekend home until we purchased a larger home for our family that is also Downtown. Walking distance to everything, you can park your car and never need it again until you leave downtown Beaufort. 40 steps from Beaufort Visitor Center (the Historic Arsenal). Very quiet. Bright and Clean. Great area. Since you do not know the area or location, we have added pictures on all sides and behind the house so that you can see how great the surroundings are, no surprises!

1 block away from great restaurants, 1 block from Beaufort Day Spa,

2 blocks from Bay Street and the beautiful Waterfront Park, and 2 blocks from the Historic Old Point neighborhood with beautiful AnteBellum Mansions. The cottage is beautifully furnished with 2 Queen beds and a living room with drop leaf table and comfortable leather couch. One bathroom has a shower (no tub). The other bathroom is an extra large half bath. The kitchenette includes a Microwave, Keurig coffee machine with K-Cup supplies and small Refrigerator and Granite Countertop. This is not a cooking kitchen. The entire cottage is beautifully tiled throughout with Central Air and Heat. Private bricked courtyard off Master Bedroom. The master bed is made of antique pine , armoire, two side tables, lamps, and ceiling fan with lights and two ceiling can lights.

The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, with a antique pine dresser and built in reading lamps on the wall, and two can lights overhead.

The house is a 1950's RENOVATED BLOCK cottage, drywall over block, high ceilings, all new: electrical, plumbing and windows.

Great area. Location Location Location.

The surrounding homes are mostly owner occupied, not short term rental.

You can park right in front of the cottage.

We are very careful about pest control and cleanliness, and have contracted with a national pest control company.

Across the street is a small Historic synagogue and next to that is the Methodist Church. The cottage is on a one way street, which is extremely quiet and safe.

Parking can be on street, or in the grass lot right before the cottage.

The house has 9 foot ceilings and the master has a vaulted ceiling.

About Charlie Calvert

My wife and I are native South Carolinians. We live in Beaufort about a mile from the Cottage.We are available if you need anything as we are owner/managers. Beaufort is becoming a retirement destination and we are thrilled that many of our guests want to move here!

Charlie Calvert purchased this Cottage in 2007

Why Charlie Calvert chose Downtown

This is our personal guest cottage used by family and friends for overflow from our home. Many family and friends inquired about having friends stay there after enjoying Downtown Beaufort so much, so we decided to make it available. There are VERY few properties as close to the waterfront as this property. It is on a one way street, very quiet, upscale furnishings, residential feel, in an urban setting. The cottage is like a hotel suite, small kitchen area for coffee, microwave, bar fridge and sink. There is no washer and dryer, this is like a hotel suite.

What makes this Cottage unique

Fully refundable deposit for any Parris Island Marine Family that needs to cancel. Awesome, downtown location. This cottage is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and historical attractions. You can see the Historic Arsenal, now the Beaufort Visitors Center, from the front door! Convenient to Paris Island for graduations.

                                                          Dylan E.Oklahoma City

                                                          This is a really perfect space, comfortable and ideally located within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. The owners were very accommodating with our schedule and we couldn’t have asked for more. A great place to stay!

                                                          Cute and convenient!

                                                          Brooke C.

                                                          We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The property was neat and clean and provided everything necessary, instructions and all, for our convenience. We especially enjoyed the location. We were within walking distance to everything we wanted to visit in Beaufort and easy access when heading out of town! The price was more than fair! We appreciated Charlie’s communication prior to our arrival as well, with direct contact info provided, if necessary, during our stay. (It wasn’t necessary.)

                                                          Thanks for everything Charlie!

                                                          We could not have been more pleased with our stay. My wife and I stayed 4 days in it and enjoyed every minute. This cottage is a couple minutes walk from downtown, and truly embodies the heart of Beaufort. The owner and family were also a delight to rent from, they made sure they stayed in contact with us and made sure we were happy. The cottage itself was impeccably cleaned, and has a cozy, family feel. The cottage is much larger than it may appear and even has an adorable little back patio. Enjoyed our stay tremendously and will rent again!

                                                          Great Cottage

                                                          Kathy R.-

                                                          Very comfortable cottage, everything I needed - good internet, comfortable beds, big coffee cups with coffee for the mornings and nice wine glasses for wine in the evenings. Walking distance of the Beaufort Bayfront with great restaurants.

                                                          Cute, cozy, great value

                                                          Very comfortable and close to everything. We walked everywhere. Hosts were very communicative.

                                                          Definitely recommend it.

                                                          We were delighted with our stay in Beaufort! Charlie Calvert's cottage served my wife and me excellently. The cottage might be described as "bijou," but suited our needs nicely. Its location on the edge of the historic district meant we could walk to all the sites without resorting to transportation. Charlie took great care to make sure we were happy and saw to it that every detail was attended to. We give our stay high marks!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you again for staying at our Cottage, I hope we see you and your wife again!

                                                          This cottage is perfectly situated to get out and enjoy the day in beautiful Downtown Beaufort and the Waterfront Park. Have breakfast at the Palm and Moon Bagel or Blackstone Cafe, both on the same one way street as the cottage. At night, walk down Scott Street to Bay Street and have your choice of waterfront dining. ( Plums, Saltus, Panini's ) . After dinner, sit on the water front swings and relax on the Bayfront. Then walk back to the cottage- no parking necessary. Shop on walkable Bay Street- Jewelry, Gifts, Clothing, Outfitters- to name a few. You may also walk one block over ( East) and cross Carteret Street to take a walkable tour of the Old Point- home to AnteBellum homes, and the setting for movies such as Forest Gump, The Great Santini, The Big Chill and other movies. Beaufort Day Spa is just one block away @ 304 Scott Street. The Historic Arsenal that houses the Visitor Center can be seen from the front door, and is open every day. Please stop in and ask the staff for recommendations about Beaufort!
