Watch the sun set long shadows across the tannic-black waters of the Edisto River...behind the serene green of tupelo gum and bald cypress, just a half-Kile downstream from Givans' Ferry State Park. All the amenities you'd expect of a 2nd home, elevated on pilings, for an even grander view over the 12-foot embankment, which is spanned by impressive dock complex. 2 sit-on-top kayaks provided...more available upon request. Full details for several pre-planned kayak trips. Just upriver, paddle through the entrance to 2 huge bald cypress swamps, (4-hole & Indian Field). By car, only minutes away from the National Audubon Society's Francis Beidler Forrest. 1 hour drive to Charleston's historic district. 1 hour and 15 minutes to the beaches or to Kiawah Island. Re-create by relaxing in the Pawley's Island hammock with a good book and enjoy the river's breeze! Wireless Internet provided.
Activities you recommend doing? : There are 2 kayaks, horseshoes, croquet, bad-mitten, and floats with pump down under the house. Also, going toward Colleton County on Hwy 61 on your right, there is a quaint little restaurant/grill down a dirt road on your right. It is called Bee City (look for the sign) and the petting zoo is tremendous for kids---of all ages! They have good food, lots of info on bees, their products (for sale) and antiques memorabilia on the walls.
