This attractively restored home, listed on the National Historic Register, exudes a phenomenal blend of historic appeal and southern hospitality combined with modern 21st century amenities. Unwind with your favorite book on the porch swing overlooking the bay! Sip a cool drink from one of the many rockers on the roomy wrap-around porch. Watch fishing, recreational and tour boats sail by. You may even see dolphins frolicking! This waterfront home offers some of the best vistas in all of Beaufort! A short walk along the water, shaded by broad oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, will bring guests to many stores, eateries, and the fashionable Waterfront Park.

Originally the home of a prominent local family, it was known as “The Teacherage” for decades as a home for single teachers. This home later became one of the south's most trendy bed and breakfast inns. A recent meticulous major remodel has returned the stately home to its original intent as a single-family private escape where guests can appreciate five cavernous bedrooms and six bathrooms. Each bedroom, as well as the dining room, kitchen and living room, offers a water view.

Your sea island getaway combines a excellent blend of historic architectural features such as original neoclassic columns, a gum wood bannister, and charmingly crafted moldings along with modern conveniences. Along with superb water vistas, the home features a vintage claw-foot soaking tub, original heart pine, oak and mahogany floors, elegant granite countertops, a handsome garden, a historic rib cage brass shower, gas fireplace and comfortable beds with high-quality linens. A second floor screened-in porch offers the convenience of a close by drink center complete with coffee maker and refrigerator that accepts guests to roll out of bed and savor a cup of coffee while gazing at the water. The home features an impressive collection of cozy, but not fussy, 18th and 19th century antiques. Because it provides a unique blend of enormous communal spaces and private bedrooms, this home would make a ideal destination for groups traveling together such as couples, girlfriends' getaways, and modest family get-togethers.

About Historic Beaufort
Those fascinated by history, antebellum architecture, gourmet dining, shopping, gallery browsing or water activities (sailing, kayaking, beach-combing), are sure to adore Beaufort! Beaufort is a safe, vibrant place to spend either a special weekend or a long vacation. Set conveniently between Savannah and Charleston, Beaufort retains its modest-town charm but offers much to do. The history of the Civil War played an impressive role in Beaufort's survival and legacy. There are multiple appealing things to do for history buffs. Travel back in time by taking a self-guided history walk through our National Historic District. A short horse and buggy tour clops down our hallowed streets in an hour-long tour. Take an early evening graveyard tour visiting many historical and enchanting churches around the downtown area, such as Saint Helena's Episcopal Church.

Life on the Water
Beaufort is located on one of roughly 200 islands on the Intracoastal Waterway. Its geographic location is at the mouth of the Port Royal Sound which is the source of high salty tides, beautiful marshes and beaches, and hurricane-complimentary weather. A short (15-min.) drive to Hunting Island State Park, brings you to the Atlantic coast where you can savor sand, surf, long walks on the South Carolina shoreline, a tour of the historic lighthouse, or to watch freshly hatched sea turtles scramble to the sea. Numerous eco tours are available for exploring the rivers and marshes, either by kayak or boat.

Cozy, Cavernous Accommodations
Bedrooms and Bathrooms (5 bedrooms and 5 ½ baths)
One suite is located on the first floor. The second floor offers three spacious bedrooms (each with water vistas) and three private refreshed baths. The third floor “Crows Nest” is well worth the additional steps because here you can gaze at the stars under a cupola! Bedrooms on the first two floors are equipped with ceiling fans. A half bath is also available on the first floor.

Living Room
The expansive living room offers impressive water vistas, neoclassic columns and comfortable seating for all. A new Sony 65” flat screen HD intelligent TV features premium cable TV and internet service from which guests can access their favorite entertainment accounts.
Dining Room
Guests who prefer eating at home will enjoy a spacious dining room offering a sizable antique table, water/garden vistas, dramatic 10-foot original oak pocket doors and a coffered ceiling. An striking selection of dinnerware and serving pieces ensure that guests may dine in comfort.
Gourmet Kitchen is a Cook's Heaven
The freshly modernized gourmet kitchen includes bespoke cabinetry, handsome Italian granite countertops and professional appliances. The spacious granite island includes comfortable seagrass seating. Shrimp & grits anyone?
There's no other place like this in Beaufort!

The Island also features a museum and frequent graduation ceremonies when new recruits officially become Marines. Parris Island, its museum, a restaurant and the graduation ceremonies are open to the public. Nearby, the Marine Corps Air Station is among the United States military's most important and most historically colorful installations where fighter pilots train with some of the world's most advanced jets.

How to book the best vacation home experience:

Money saving strategies:

  • Book your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups reserve their Summer rental homes during Winter holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summertime is high season in the Beaufort, SC area. Booking a rental in Fall or Spring months is an excellent way to save money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of suitable properties. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the high season.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host if your group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer customers an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for additional information.
  • Find a copy of your local visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitors guides contain deals for local accommodations, tours and attractions.

How to select the best rental home:

  • Start by having your group choose the best dates and a budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration your family requires. Stunning Water Views and Southern Hospitality in Historic Downtown Beaufort has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is usually accessible online. If they are not listed, email the property management company before you reserve your home. Note that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds.
  • Some rentals allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask the owner about pet restrictions before booking.
  • Is your family looking for particular amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters with amenity lists. Use these filters to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental.
  • Property managers are there to help! Feel free to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your rental while you're out and about. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • Upon arrival, make note of any issues with the property and immediately contact the owner. Record all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Often times, nearby homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting noise limits and parking regulations reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can typically help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Double-check every room of the property to confirm that you've packed all belongings at departure. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the property a final time and scan for damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the manager isn't available, remember to take video of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a terrific time? Many rental management companies make it easy for guests to provide reviews. If your rental and/or host was fantastic, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was inoperable and they failed to fix it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
