Wonderful will be back and recommend it to friends

  • 5 of 5

Visited the Porgy house where my Mom lived in the 40s. The owner was very gracious and let us in to take a trip down memory lane. Beach was great and Mom spent a lot of time on front porch. All the amenities for home and beach make it very easy to pack your bathing suit and enjoy!!!!!

Lovely beach cottage with a great porch

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice, clean and conveniently stocked for our trip. The property is a short walk from the beach but there is public access right there. The screened in porch was very relaxing to sit on and people watch. Folly beach is wonderful and a very relaxed atmosphere. The house and the owners had everything to make you truly feel like you were at home and make vacation enjoyable not stressful.

Very clean and well equiped

  • 5 of 5

Over my birthday weekend we stayed at the Picket Fence Cottage in Folly Beach, SC. It was perfect. Our dog Oreo was welcome and we were delighted with the cottage. We had a nice note and bottle of wine waiting for us. We had plenty of towels, toilet paper and even a hair dryer. I was thrilled with the property and would recommend it to future Folly Beach goers.

The Picket Fence Cottage was a perfect fit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful stay at the Picket Fence Cottage. The cottage is adorable, whimsically decorated, and more comfortable than we expected. Just a short walk to the beach, and six blocks from town, we found that it was the perfect location. You can hear the ocean from the front porch; just add the cicadas in the live oaks, and you're set for a low country experience. The house is amply stocked, and it was nice not to have to worry about bringing linens and towels. Our hosts were attentive when needed, and left us a much appreciated welcome gift. The best part about the cottage is that it is dog friendly! Our family would stay at the Picket Fence Cottage again, for sure!
