Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Adorable Classic Cottage With 1 Queen Bedroom & 1 Bedroom With Twin Size Bunks

This classic cottage has been renovated to include modern amenities of air conditioning, WiFi, cable TV, new appliances, electric dish washer drawer, etc, but has maintained its retro 1940's-50's sense of style. Beautiful hardwood floors, Coca-Cola style kitchen and original bead board walls and classic furnishings give the feeling that time has stopped and provides a throw back to when family vacation trips to Folly were a simple easy going time. Located in a quiet residential area a 6 block walk to the restaurants and night life of Center street Folly. Golf cart and bicycle rentals are available. A leisurely 2 minute stroll puts you at the Atlantic Ocean. We have provided sturdy aluminum beach carts for your use. Laundry area and gas grill are also on site and shared with her sister cottage. 'Picket Fence Cottage ' is located next door to 'Sea Glass Cottage' which offers an additional 1 bedroom plus day bed. If you need a bit more room, why not rent both!

Enjoy a little porch sitting on your private screened porch. Walk to town, rent a bicycle or golf cart. These cottages can make Folly your home away form home.

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!

Cute, quaint cottage close to the beach. Great for a small single family. The shared beach carts, chairs and coolers make it very easy to enjoy the beach. The owners make sure you have everything you need. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rion, for your wonderful review. The cottage is loaded with all the goodies needed for a great beach vacation. The location makes it easy to do other fun activities away from the beach also, such as downtown Charleston, the Plantations, etc. We hope you return soon! Sue
