VINTAGE RIVER COTTAGE ON THE OKATIE BETWEEN BEAUFORT BLUFFTON

Callawassie Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Vintage River Cottage on 3 acres with view of the Okatie River. Ideally located halfway between Savannah, Beaufort and Bluffton...an easy drive to the Savannah/Hilton Head airport. The Lowcountry at its orginal best. Old live oaks, camellia forests, magnolias, a perfect location from which to explore the Lowcountry. This cottage is the original house on the property known as Cedar Bluff, owners live in big house steps away. Still private and quiet.

The cottage shares the property with the owners who live in big house nearby. The cottage features a wonderful screened porch, hardwood floors, ceiling fans throughout. Dating from 1925, the cottage has lots of character, all the necessities, plus some, but keep in mind that it is almost 100 years old so if you are looking for something new and modern, this is not for you. If you want to experience the Lowcountry as it used to be and in some places still is, then this is your place.

The owners also offer a small log cabin in Western North Carolina near Cashiers, Glenville, Sylva, VRBO #300192

Keywords: vintage river cottage, circa 1925, overlooking the Okatie River

Owners are native to the area. He grew up on the May River in Bluffton and is in real estate in the area. She grew up in Savannah, is an independent fine arts consultant and also works with the local historic foundation.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1984

The cottage was our original vacation home when we lived in the downtown historic district of Savannah, Georgia. Upon making our property on the Okatie our permanent home, we make the cottage available to guests who would enjoy 'old Carolina' or 'old Lowcountry'....It is charming, has all the necessities, not too many fancy bells and whistles, but many amenities such as 'old trees, pristine tidal river, one of the Lowcountry's best screened porches for sitting , reading or sippin'.

excellent location equi-distant between historic downtown Savannah (1733) and historic Beaufort (1711) and Bluffton....15 minutes off the bustle of I-95. quiet riverfront residential area, 3+ acres.

LOVE THE OKATEE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We spent the month of March at the Okatee Cottage in the Lowcountry of SC. The cottage is spacious, clean and very well furnished...and the location is great. The property is quiet and private and right on the Okatie River. We traveled easily to Hilton Head, Savannah, Charleston, Beaufort and to visit our daughter in Ridgeland.

We especially enjoyed the screened large porch for relaxing on warm days and walking on the grounds with our dog. The furnishings are comfortable and the artwork displayed in the cottage is beautiful. Isabella and Jerry were great hosts.

We recommend the cottage and hope to visit again!

EXCEPTIONAL LOW COUNTRY EXPERIENCE....

  • 5 of 5
Having lived in the Low Country I had high expectations for my return visit and was not disappointed. This river property offers sunrise and sunset views -we enjoyed coffee on the dock, while the dolphins entertained us one morning on the river. The location is most ideal for having multiple choices of activities. Drove to Hunting Island and walked the wild beaches, one of the few places you can see horseback riding along the shores. In contrast the next day rode a tandem bike on the beaches of Hilton Head. Enjoyed the Southern hospitality of Isabella, she and her husband Jerry have a rich knowledge of the area and the cottage is well suited to sitting by the fire in the evenings dreaming about what to do the next day.

EXTREMELY PLEASED!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week and an unexpected extra day [due to grandson's football game] which Isabella OK'd while we were on the way. Jerry and Isabella were very, very good hosts. Since we arrived late on Friday [instead of Saturday morning] they had the cottage opened and ready for us. The weather was good - used the A/C for 2 days, then opened windows and doors for 4 days, and then had to turn on the heat the last 2 days. We were very comfortable at all times. Their was plenty of room for us, 2 dogs, and one of our grandsons. There was even a little study so we could continue our grandsons home schooling while our daughter worked. We spent mornings on the dock watching the sunrise and drinking coffee...so relaxing. The cottage is old and you need to ask Jerry about the history of the property - very interesting. We plan on returning next year. The owner's home is on the property but you would never know it. There is enough land to take walks [with or without dogs] and look at the beautiful surroundings. Our daughter and family live in Bluffton so we didn't do any sightseeing, but there was a lot of Halloween activity for the grandsons and us to participate in, plus markets in Bluffton and Beaufort. Both of these cities are easy to get to from this property [also Savannah]. I highly recommend this property if you like peach and quiet and relaxation.

IDEAL.

  • 5 of 5
Our sweet host was welcoming without being in our grill, the cottage is the kind of place you never want to leave, a real Hemingway retreat. Equally easy to get to Beaufort, Hilton Head, or Savannah, was just the perfect vacation. We just left and I can't wait to go back.

SECLUDED COTTAGE ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Okatee Cottage for one week and it is the best place to stay in the LowCountry. It is conveniently located to Savannah,Hilton Head, Bluffton, Beaufort and Charleston. The owners Isabella and Jerry made the trip. They gave tons of information on the local area and were extremely knowledgeable on day trips from the cottage. They welcomed our two dogs and made us feel at home in Low Country. Would definitely recommend this cottage and we look forward to returning there in the near future.

SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY!

  • 5 of 5
Okatee cottage was a wonderful experience. I was initially skeptical because the cottage is on the same property as the main house (and not that far away); however, we still felt like we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The family was warm and welcoming, and the cottage was clean and spacious. The historical house has been wonderfully renovated to comfortably accommodate 2 couples. Also we LOVED having access to the dock and the water. The dog loved it too!

Areas for improvement would be the kitchenware: there were a couple pots but no baking sheets. Also, we weren't sure about the proper manners when the family was down on the dock and we wanted to as well. Since we wanted some privacy, we ended up hanging out on the covered patio and leaving the family to enjoy the dock.
