Wood turning lessons are available from Peter Lamb on the premises. Have a sundowner on the dock and watch dolphin teaching their pups to fish, Jacques Cousteau loved it here. Get a guided kayak tour of the pristine May River, a salt water estuary, bring your own kayaks, small sailboats or at least a bathing suit to swim from the dock. Boat landing at the Bluffton Oyster Company is only 5 blocks away. There's so much to do, you'll want to stay longer!

Pack & Play crib and booster seat available for little kids. Use the big house washer and dryer if needed.

The local produce, seafood, meals, and wine are amazing. Music is provided free as is People Watching!

Two blocks walking to Cole-Heyward House Museum where tours are $5/person or $15 for a complete tour of the historic district, charming shops, galleries and restaurants. Golf at any on of 12 courses in Bluffton Township.

Great biking area (flat Lowcountry) with miles of paths. Day trips to Hilton Head Island beaches/family attractions and Savannah, GA night life and Historic District tours, museums etc. 20-40 minutes by car. Due to very high insurance rates we have changed our pricing: $105/night or $125/weekend night; longer term rental prices as stated in Pricing and Terms.

The only historic building in Old Town Bluffton available for short term rental, unique and adorable!

We also offer tours of our historic house, make recommendations for dining, golf, biking, kayaking, or just sitting on the porch swinging and reading. We are almost always here to help them and provide emergency numbers for them when we are away.
