Welcome to the Smalls-Nash Cottage, a striking 750 square foot historic home constructed by local hero Robert Smalls in 1890. The home is located in the heart of the Old Point neighborhood with moss-draped trees and rich history around every corner.
Constructed by Smalls in the backyard of the big Robert Smalls home, the original footprint was two rooms before it doubled in size in the early 1900s and is the floor plan you see today.
The Smalls-Nash Cottage remained in the Smalls family until 2006, and under keeping of the Beaufort Historic Foundation until 2020. Lovingly restored with modern amenities and amenities, the home has original preserved features including decorative double fireplaces with mantles and floor.
The one bedroom, one bathroom property highlights include a clawfoot tub with shower, a pull-out couch in the library for additional visitors and a tucked away, lush backyard with porch for calming in your own private getaway.
The kitchen is completely outfitted with flatware, cookware, refrigerator with freezer, full size oven and a four burner electric cooktop. The home has private WiFi and Intelligent TV in the library, along with a desk in the living room for any remote workers. The backyard has seating for outdoor dinners, as well as a charcoal grille and there’s a Samsung washer-dryer in the shed out back.
You’re an 8 min. walk from downtown Beaufort’s eateries, galleries, shopping and waterfront park and only a 25 min. drive to the pristine beaches of Hunting Island State Park (the home has a car pass). And if you’re feeling additional adventurous, the culinary delights and sights of Charleston and Savannah are both a little over an hour away.

Tips for getting the perfect Beaufort, SC vacation property experience:
Get the best rental home value:
- Summer time is high season in Beaufort. To get the best value, consider shifting your group's vacation week to the Spring or Fall seasons. May, September, and even October offer excellent weather, less crowded beaches, and reduced traffic.
- Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families book their Summer vacations during Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner whether your group qualifies for a discount.
- Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests an option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
- Look for your local Beaufort, SC visitors guide magazine upon arrival. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great information, visitors guide magazines have deals for local accommodations and attractions.
Planning, picking, and booking the rightrental home:
- Start by choosing your vacation dates and a spending budget.
- Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your family needs. Lovingly Restored 1890 Historic Cottage has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Beaufort, SC rentals search.
- Specific details about bedrooms and bed types is generally available on booking pages. If not, email or call the property owner before you book the property. Remember that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds and bunks. You'll need to establish what configuration is best for your family.
- If there's a particular Beaufort, SC beach you are enamored with, search for homes that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
- Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
- Some properties allow pets, and some don't. Allowable types of family pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the host about pet restrictions before booking.
Tips for your stay:
- Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and add a note with the directions to your phone.
- Document any issues with the rental upon arrival, and immediately contact the host. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that can be very helpful if a dispute arises.
- Property managers are great sources of help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
- Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are an incredible resource to find the best local beaches.
- Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
- Keep your rental home locked while you're out! Don't let thieves spoil your trip.
- Double-check the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all personal items on check-out day. Check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden treasure. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Inspect the property one final time and scan for any damage. We advise inspecting the property with the property manager whenever possible. If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take photos and video of the rental to record its condition.
- Did your family have a wonderful stay? Many rental websites make it easy for customers to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or property manager was wonderful, they would love to hear it. If anything was defective and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
