This charmingly restored home, listed on the National Historic Register, exudes a marvelous 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 trendy 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 fashionable 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 savor 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 amazing blend of historic architectural features such as original neoclassic columns, a gum wood bannister, and delightfully 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, charming granite countertops, a gorgeous 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 appreciate 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 sizable 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 impressive 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, gorgeous 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, Roomy 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 striking 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.

When to book & When to go:

  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups book their Summer vacations during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • June, July, and August are high season in the Beaufort, SC area. To find the best value, shift your vacation to the Spring or Fall months. May, September, and even October offer pleasant temperatures, less crowded beaches, and reduced traffic.

  • Property managers sometimes offer discounts or promotional rates for active duty military and veterans. It's always a good idea to check with your property manager to see if special offers are available for your family before you book.
  • Booking websites frequently offer customers an option to buy vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for details.

  • During check-in, document any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud vacationers disrupting your peace. Practice the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great local food and attractions you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to get the best seafood, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • On check-out day, take a final walk-through to make sure you have not forget anything. Remember to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.

If your rental property and/or property management company was great, they always love to hear your praise.
