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

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Callawassie Island

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'.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

My husband and my cousins enjoyed a wonderful week at this charming cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and located on beautiful grounds. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be coming back.

Classic Low Country Respite

  • 5 of 5
Okatee Cottage is a gem! It provided a wonderful respite from all the busy activities of big-city metropolitan life. Isabella and Jerry served as excellent hosts, offering valuable information about the cottage, its history, and Low Country opportunities. The cottage was roomy, comfortable, clean, and convenient to Bluffton, Beaufort and the sea islands. The hosts had stocked the cottage with ample information and maps of the area that helped in deciding where we would spend time away from the cottage. We loved its location and used it as our base to explore, relax and have fun.

Old Town Bluffton with all its history and eclectic shops provided opportunites for relaxed strolling through old oak trees seemingly decorated with Spanish moss. Hunting Island offered great opportunity for sun and fun at the beach. But one of the most enjoyable amenities was sitting on the dock over the Okatie River and soaking in the beauty of the view of the marshes of Pinkney Reserve and Callawassie Island. We actually watched an eagle swoop down and pluck a fish out of the river and then land on a branch of a nearby tall pine on the bluff with its lunch.

Our cousins joined us mid-week and the four of us with our two toy poodles blended right into the laid back atmosphere of the Carolina Low Country. We are already looking forward to future getaways to Okatee Cottage and would recommed it for uncomplicated relaxation.

Low and Slow

  • of 5
We spent two weeks in the the beautiful low country cottage. The setting was serene, the home spacious and beautiful with a never ending litany of sights and sounds to behold. Jerry and Isabella were wonderful hosts and always there whenever we needed anything. They were inviting and most helpful when it came to anything pertaining to the local surroundings. If you're headed to the low country, have a small group, a pet or a desire to have an evening snack along side the sweeping Okatie river, or better yet enjoy your morning coffee while watching the baby dolphins frolicking in the surf, then the low country cottage is for you. I was there a week for vacation and a week for work and was able to utilize my computer as if I was plugged into the office. All in all it was a peaceful visit in a comfortable cottage.

HIDDEN TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
While recently attending a "destination wedding" at a venue in the S.C. Low country, i had the good fortune be referred to this quaint property when i requested an alternative to typical hotel/resort accomidations. This cottage, and nearby owners home, sit on several manicured acres overlooking the river and marsh. This cottage is absolutely delightful, impeccably decorated, and fully equipped for a very comfortable stay.
The owners were so gracious and kind in every respect, and totally accessible if needed, to insure an enjoyable and comfortable stay. I enjoyed my stay so much that i extended it for a couple of extra days, and am making plans for a return visit in October ! I highly recommend this property to any one who enjoys taking time out for a little R&R with plenty recreation venues very close by...

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.
