About the property

4 Bedrooms/4.5 Bathrooms Sleeps 13

McClellanville's oldest home, The DuPre House, (ca. 1790). Totally renovated and fully-furnished fishing village cottage. Enjoy the large porches, all modern amenities, and quiet solitude. Floating dock on Jeremy Creek with short 200 yard transit to Intercoastal Waterway. You will think you have gone back in time to your Grandmother's house. McClellanville is world renowned for its local shrimp and oysters. Several restaurants and churches within walking distance in village. Charleston-short 30 minute drive away.

The oldest house in McClellanville was actually built on Echaw Plantation, near Jamestown, SC. In 1861, the house was dismantled, and numbered timbers were floated down the Santee River and up Jeremy Creek to its present location where the house was re-assembled. Numbers are still visible on the timbers. The property on which the house sits was purchased by Dr. John Y. DuPre on 20 May, 1861 from Archibald James McClellan for the purchase price of $200.

For an additional fee, golf can be arranged at one of South Carolina's most exclusive and private golf courses-20 minutes away. Owner is a member and can arrange tee times. Private club does not allow cash purchases by guests, so green fees will have to be added to rental fee. Guest green fees are currently $150 plus cart. (Prices subject to change.)

The secret on McClellanville is getting out. You will think you have gone back 50 years in time. Several restaurants in the village. Relax-throttle back-walk through the village, take a bike ride to watch the shrimp boats come in. Recommend TW Graham's for local flavored seafood. Freshest seafood on the coast. You will not be disappointed. Several fishing charters nearby for in shore or off shore. Call Captain Richard at Cape Romain Marine-he's the best.

Wonderful vacation rental!!!! A MUST!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at the DuPre house for a week (4/10 - 4/16), if you are planning to visit Charleston, this is a MUST DO. The pictures really don't show how well the house has been restored, the house is in FABULOUS condition. Even the bunk beds are comfy, there were 10 of us and we were all plenty comfortable. There's a big hammock on the screened porch, dolphins off the dock, crab nets, pretty much everything you need to get away from the office. There's a wooden dock you can pull a boat up to, and a ramp nearby.

If you haven't been, Cypress Gardens is a must do as well, its only $9 per person and they have plenty of free rowboats to rent, and is less than an hour away from the house. It's where they filmed The Notebook, the part with all the white swans... Boone Hall Plantation is about 30 mins away towards Charleston. It's close enough to the city to enjoy.

Thanks Steve for allowing us to stay!!!!!

Golf Trip - Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Celebrating our 20 year college graduation, four guys stayed at the DuPre house and had a great time. Bulls Bay is an OUTSTANDING golf course and the house worked perfectly for our needs. Thanks Pep!

Most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Charming setting, wonderful old home and awsome comfort. Close enough to touristy stuff but, far enough away to be an island of calm. Caretaker was a hoot in the best sense possible. Our host was very good about keeping in touch. After coming home to eight inches of snow, McClellanville seemed like a dream. One of the best "small" museums I've ever been in is just across the yard. We'll remember this week for a long time. Thanks Steve.
