About the property

Minutes Away From Bay Street In Beautiful, Historic Beaufort

If you are looking for new and modern this place might not be for you but if you are looking for cozy and comfortable then look no further. This quaint cottage is minutes away from Bay Street in beautiful, historic downtown Beaufort and Parris Island which makes it perfect for Parris Island graduate families or any vacationer. It is located on the Albergotti Creek with a private dock and pool. Bring your fishing gear and fish off our dock, go crabbing, or just relax and watch the egrets and dolphins. Beaufort is home to one of the largest collection of antebellum homes in the country. Come see why Hollywood has chosen Beaufort for the filming of numerous movies including Forest Gump, Prince of Tides, and The Great Santini.

Because of the ideal location you can visit the nearby beaches of Hunting Island State Park, Fripp Island, and Hilton Head Island or take a trip to the historic cities of Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC. All of our previous guests have said that 'Kim's Kottage' is even more amazing than the pictures reveal. So come join us for a couple of nights, the week, or even longer.

Why Kim Tillotson chose Beaufort

We loved the fact that it was secluded in a small, quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac; on the river with a dock for boating/fishing/crabbing; minutes from downtown Beaufort; close to beaches; short driving distance to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA

Private pool; Private dock; Large fenced in yard for pets to roam

Kim's Kottage

  • 5 of 5

We went to Beaufort, SC with friends to celebrate our 44th anniversary. We stayed at Kim's Kottage and we could not have picked a better place! The cottage is adorable, warm and welcoming and Kim and Rod are so easy to work with! We enjoyed crabbing from their dock and just relaxing at night. They provided almost everything we could need and were just a text away if we needed anything. We will DEFINITELY come back!

Great place and location for a family get away.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed just staying at the house a couple of days and catching our meal from the dock. Pool is perfect for kids to play in safely. Close enough for a day trip to Charleston. And close to Hunting Island Beach which is a great family beach. Enjoyed cuisine from area a couple of days and the Waterfront Park in Beaufort.

The dock was great for fishing, catching crab and enjoyed some beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the pool and eating on the deck. And the live oak with Spanish moss.

Anniversary Weekend

Cute house, spotless, equipped with everything we needed. Close to everything. Clean pool and beautiful dock for relaxing. Dockside and The Rooster are great places to eat. If you can splurge take a vintage biplane flight, well worth it!
