Newly Decorated Two Bedroom Cottage On The Tidal Marsh With En Suite Bathrooms
Enjoy the peace and serenity of our Marshside Cottage with the tidal changes of the Broad River and the transformation of the marshes on the tidal creeks. Relax on the back porch and read a book as high tide creeps up to your retreat. It's a nature lovers respite with birds, water and wildlife nestled among the live oaks draped with Spanish Moss, also known as bearded trees. Try your hand at fishing, crabbing or congratulate that new marine graduating from Parris Island. Launch a kayak to explore the many waterways. This area invites you to get outside ~ walk, bike or explore the vast amount of history in the area. It's a golfer's mecca with over twenty courses nearby. Shopping, dining and antiquing are in all directions. While away the day at the the multiple Tanger Outlet locations or visit the many thrift shops in the area.
Depending on the season and migration there have been over 250 species of birds spotted here. Many of the resident birds include hawks, ibis, kingfishers, herons, hummingbirds, egrets, turkeys, pelicans, wood storks, pilliated woodpeckers, eagles, and osprey. We've even seen whooping cranes here. Migratory Birds include hummingbirds, robins, painted buntings, blue birds, ducks and many more.
Get away to a year round vacation home nestled in the beautiful lowcountry of SC located in a central location only 7 miles from I-95 in an environmentally friendly community. Less than 40 min. away from Savannah, Hilton Head, Beaufort, Bluffton, Parris Island and a little over an hour to Charleston. Hunting Island State Park has one of the finest beaches in the area and it's a short drive to National Wildlife Refuges.
Marshside Cottage is a stylishly furnished two story home with two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The downstairs bedroom accommodates a king bed with access to the porch for those morning sunrises. Minimal artificial light provides magnificent views of the night sky as the moon rises over the marsh.
Upstairs is an open loft style bedroom with two queen beds . We provide a fully equipped kitchen allowing you to cook any or all of your meals.

About Greg Jucha
Elaine and I grew up far, far away and spent most of our working years in Atlanta, Ga. We retired in 2008 and having two rental properties in South Carolina, we moved into one of them. We have sold this one and are building a new house on Lady's Island near Beaufort, SC. We enjoy traveling, good food, taking pictures, kayaking and I enjoy cooking, fishing and woodworking.
Greg Jucha purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Greg Jucha chose Knowles Island Plantation
We visited here on vacation a few times, became interested in the area and decided to purchase property here. We thoroughly enjoy the lowcountry. I don't believe we could envision ourselves moving away. Plenty of wildlife and people are friendly. It has a small town atmosphere but you're close to all the modern amenities and larger cities
What makes this Cottage unique
Our home is nestled along the marshes of the Broad River. It is called a river but is more like an inlet. There are three rivers that merge in the headwaters here to form the beginning of the Broad River but when the tide comes in it reverses the flow of the rivers. We can have up to a ten foot fluctuation We enjoy three meals a day on the back deck, weather permitting and it is great to watch the tide come in and the many birds coming and going. Saltwater fishing regulations apply.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Such a clean, cute place to return to after long days of touring. We were nothing but pleased from the minute we walked in the door! The beds are extremely comfy. We so appreciated the extra hostess touches.....a welcome note, fresh flowers, and the snack mix ( in fact, I ordered some online already!). The landlord is extremely prompt to answer text questions. We really missed “our” cottage once we were on the road back home and had to do the hotel thing again.
Loved the natural setting
Very clean! Very relaxing back porch listening to the birds and feeling close up to nature. Would highly recommend this property.
Wonderful relaxing vacation
Perfect escape from the rath of hurricane Irma. Lovely FULLY EQUIPPED cottage. They thought of and provided EVERYTHING. So relaxing that we extended our stay by five days and enjoyed every minute. Very accessible and accommodation landlords coupled with wonderful surroundings, a WINNER! Definitely on our list of future vacations.
Perfect Labor Day family retreat
This adorable cottage by the marsh was comfortable, immaculate, and beautifully decorated. The location gave us easy access to Bluffton, Hilton Head, and Beaufort, and the best fishing and crabbing spots were 5 minutes away. Our three generation family of four had the most wonderful holiday weekend.
The cottage ambiance was lovely! Very clean and even prettier than the pictures! A welcome note along with a bag of goodies was an unexpected surprise, which added a very personal and welcoming touch. At the cottage, questions were promptly answered with a personal follow-up phone conversation, a very rare experience in today's technologically advanced society, AND music to our ears. We will fondly remember the experiences during our stay and cherish the memories. Thank you, for sharing your home with us.
The accommodations were exceptional. The owners were extremely courteous and helpful, even being patient with a late-night arrival phone call for directions. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, fresh cut flowers, coffee, and welcome gift. The house was immaculate and comfortable. For nature lovers, the back porch and the scenery were delightful. We would definitely rent this property again.
Cynthia, thank you for your kind review. We try to make our guests feel welcome and provide the same amenities that we would like to have when we travel. Please come visit us again sometime.
