About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located on a 150 acre private island within the gates of Colleton River Plantation*, this cottage sits on one of the prettiest, most unique sites in the Hilton Head area. The 'Devil's Elbow Cottage' is nestled among ancient Live Oak trees overlooking the marshes and waters of the Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge.
Enjoy the best of both worlds. Experience the Lowcountry Bluffton / Hilton Head region of years past yet be a short drive from all of the shopping and amenities of one of the world's foremost resort areas.

This very comfortable cottage has high ceilings and large windows that create a light atmosphere and lets you enjoy this special setting. Built in 1992 and recently updated, this little house sits adjacent to the 'main' house. They are the only houses on the island.

Listen to the warblers in the oaks and the snapping shrimp in the marsh below as you doze off for your afternoon nap on the screened porch. Buy seasonal vegetables from the organic farmer on the island before he goes to the farmer's market.

Set the crab trap from the dock or cast a net for shrimp and enjoy the seafood bounty of the Lowcountry. Sight fish for Redfish from a kayak on the flats of the adjacent islands. See hhionthefly on youtube for fishing video filmed in our back yard!

If the natural world gets to be too much for you it is a ten minute drive to highway 278 and all of the shopping, dining, golf and beaches you could desire. Visit the galleries of Bluffton's old town. Take the beautiful drive to Charleston or spend a day in Savannah or Beaufort.

*Colleton River Plantation is a private community and the amenities are for the use of members and their guests only.
