The White House-Lovely Views-Privacy-Close to Olde Town Bluffton & Hilton Head

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,575 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This quiet private cottage has all of the comforts of home but is close to everything...

The White House is situated on a private plantation that has been family-owned since the 1890's & is located within the gates of Colleton River Plantation.* You will enjoy escaping it all as you enter the property down a winding country road beneath majestic live oaks.

Slated to be demolished on an adjoining plantation in the 1980's, The White House was saved and moved to its current location at Victoria Bluff Plantation. It has been remodeled and has all of the comforts of home. Enjoy tranquility surrounded by pasture, woods & lovely marsh views from your expansive porch where you can enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sunrise over Mackay's Creek.

Should you decide to venture out, beaches, golf & tennis on Hilton Head Island are just a short drive away, as is old town Bluffton. Or perhaps a day trip may be store to Historic Beaufort, Savannah or Charleston.

If you enjoy boating, there is ample space to store your boat or kayaks and take advantage of the numerous public boat landings in the area.

For those looking to get away from it all with the option of plenty to do, The White House is the perfect fit.

*The amenities of Colleton River Plantation are reserved for members & their guests & not offered with this rental.

More than Spectacular

The stay at the White House was better than I could ever have imagined. I was in the area on a working vacation and to have this truly lovely place to call home for a few days was wonderful. Sitting on the back porch into the night was so relaxing. The house is absolutely charming and beautifully appointed. I would love to stay longer next time.

This was our second stay in The White House and we're so glad we came back. The home is very clean and comfortable and has everything one needs. The location and views from the master suite and large porch are amazing. We've only just left and have already booked the house for next year.

Excellent Lodging in Bluffton, SC!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of using the Crams cottage for corporate lodging for about two months. The guys their on business loved the house and enjoyed their stay. Rachel was extremely accommodating and a even helped us out a few times with handling various deliveries needed. Location was perfect and very relaxing. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Bluffton, SC area to make this house a top choice.

Lovely secluded cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience with The White House--it was very comfortable and relaxing! We especially enjoyed the porch where we could look out on the marsh and the beautiful oak trees; it was the perfect place to watch the sun rise with a fresh cup of coffee. The house itself had every amenity and the owners were very helpful! Hilton Head was just a short drive away and we were also able to experience some of the local restaurants in Bluffton. We had a delightful stay and will hopefully be returning soon! Would definitely recommend!

The Little White House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Little White House was absolutely wonderful! A charming cottage tucked away and surrounded by large oak trees, beautifully decorated, very clean, comfortable beds, a big porch overlooking the marsh where we enjoyed drinking our coffee and wine, convenient but not too close to town and so much more!! All made for a terrific get-together for longtime college girlfriends!! I can't wait to bring my husband to The Little White House so he, too, can enjoy this gem! Highly recommend!

Car: necessary

Close to Hilton Head & it's lovely beaches, shopping and restaurants. Historic Bluffton is a short drive and while you are there swing by the Bluffton Oyster Factory that has been in operation since 1899 and pick up some of the finest Oysters & Shrimp you will ever have. Enjoy bird watching & nature walks through many of the areas preserved lands. Or simply just relax on your porch watching the tide roll in & out surrounded by nature & live oaks. Bring your golf gear and take in a round on one of the areas numerous courses. If you enjoy tennis, several clubs in the area offer clinics & hourly court time.
