About RICHARD AND BEVERLY LAHR

An island resident for over 25 years and now retired to the South West Florida coast. We arrived when the island was only 50 folks and

the island was just being discovered. No golf courses and no paved roads - November 1984.

After years of operating the only cabinet/woodworking shop on the island the times of loading into the boat to go to the mainland grew old. Now days the boat ride is to venture into the blue waters of the Florida Gulf coast into the fertile fishing grounds and enjoy the white sand beaches along with the warmth of the sun.

PLEASE NOTE: This rental property will be FOR SALE as of 2-11-2016. In the past 9 Months it has brought in over $25,000. 2 structures, one long term @ $650 per month and one short term VRBO vacation rental. Excellent Investment at $275K. Inquire to owner for details.

RICHARD AND BEVERLY LAHR purchased this cottage in 1986

Why RICHARD AND BEVERLY LAHR chose Off Island Areas

Opportunity knocked as sailing by on the Nimble coming back from St. Simon to Hilton Head. Walking for hours it put be back to the past roads of northern Vermont where I came from.

Never leaving and quitting my job on the mainland I was a transplant. The Sign over at the Freeport Marina ( Cooper River Landing was my exchange for a couple months dockage to get settled in.

This cottage was quaint and just perfect for us! It had all the amenities we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place!! Sweet accommodations and clean. Close to the beach and to marshside mommas, a great place to eat and relax. The golf cart was a great bonus and was a newer model, running great. You have to have a golf cart to get around the island!!! We can't wait to come back!! Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: Please be advised that we only grant guests return bookings when they follow the "House Rules" and follow the instructions for the Golf Cart. The following deprive you of future visits: More than 4 people, we have been told more like 6 and maybe more. Not cleaning up the kitchen dishes. Generally did not leave the cottage in the condition found upon arrival as required. Neglected to follow Golf Cart instructions. A damage claim has been issued for your stay.

Amazing......

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place and it worked out great for us to get around to other parts of the island. The golf cart was wonderful and I appreciate all the assistance you gave to me before and after our stay. Directions were great, accommodations and travel arrangements worked out wonderful. All the people we met were very nice and made us feel at home and welcomed on this unique island. I didn't have good phone service but made sure we touched base with all when we did have service and all were on time and it was a great experience. Thanks again and the cottage had all we needed and was very quaint. I needed the break for the city life. Arubra from Atlanta

Captured the feeling of the island!

  • 5 of 5

This Cottage allowed us to capture the feeling of the island perfectly! Quirky, quaint and so quiet! Filled with pots, pans, games, just like home. The golf cart was ideal. We traveled the roads and had a blast!! Marshaide Mammas, Lucy's Bell's are not to be missed. We will be back!!
