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 180 acre 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.

We came to the White House for a "girls getaway". The property is so beautiful and feels like a million years away from your worries. I have never stayed on such a property and it has definitely set the bar high for future trips.

The character of the house cannot be truly shown through the pictures...all the modern perks while stepping back in time. We were greeted with fresh flowers and a completely prepared house for a 4 day stay.

Just a of our phone gps routes (I-phone) kept sending us down Saw Mill Rd, which is a parallel route that enters the property through a side gate. This is a golf course entrance that is locked after dark. Disregard your gps if it sends you down Saw Mill and use the main entrance instead. Enjoy the peace and solitude of the house and the views.

The home was very nice and equipped with everything you need. The setting is extremely peaceful with views of the marsh from the expansive porch on the back of the house. Very private and pastoral. Would definitely rent again.

More rustic than anticipated

  • 2 of 5

Was not aware that no outside or beach items were provided for us. Says family friendly but we did not find any board or card games. Know that bugs are difficult to contain as we live in Florida but we saw numerous roaches in all rooms. Would have been nice to have access to a pool.

Owner's Response: Leah, We are so sorry that our home wasn't what you expected. In our listing, we provide a description of what is offered with the property so our guests can plan accordingly for their visit. We are just a phone call away for our guests & I wish you would have called during your stay so we could have corrected any issues you were having. We appreciate your suggestion to offer board games & we will dispatch our pest control company to re-treat the property promptly.

More than Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
