Welcome to the Cottage at The Arsenal! Located at 404 Scott Street. This 2 BR/1.5BA was renovated in 2010. This cottage was our weekend home until we purchased a larger home for our family that is also Downtown. Walking distance to everything, you can park your car and never need it again until you leave downtown Beaufort. 40 steps from Beaufort Visitor Center (the Historic Arsenal). Very quiet. Bright and Clean. Great area.

Since you do not know the area or location, we have added pictures on all sides and behind the house so that you can see how great the surroundings are, no surprises!

1 block away from great restaurants, 1 block from Beaufort Day Spa,

2 blocks from Bay Street and the beautiful Waterfront Park, and 2 blocks from the Historic Old Point neighborhood with beautiful AnteBellum Mansions. The cottage is beautifully furnished with 2 Queen beds and a living room with a big Harvest table and comfortable leather couch. One bathroom has a shower (no tub). The other bathroom is an extra large half bath. The kitchenette includes a Microwave, Keurig coffee machine with starter supplies and small Refrigerator and granite countertop. This is not a cooking kitchen. The entire cottage is beautifully tiled throughout with Central Air and Heat. Private bricked courtyard off Master Bedroom. The master bed is made of antique pine , and has an antique drop leave side table.

The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, with a tall dresser and built in reading lamps on the wall.

The house is a 1950's RENOVATED BLOCK cottage, drywall over block, high ceilings, all new: electrical, plumbing and windows.

Great area. Location Location Location.

The surrounding homes are mostly owner occupied, not short term rental.

You can park right in front of the cottage.

We are very careful about pest control and cleanliness, and have contracted with a national pest control company.

Across the street is a small Historic synagogue and next to that is the Methodist Church. The cottage is on a one way street, which is extremely quiet and safe.

Parking can be on street, or in the grass lot right before the cottage.

About Charlie Calvert

My wife and I are native South Carolinians. We live in Beaufort about a mile from the Cottage.We are available if you need anything as we are owner/managers. We recently purchased our dream home for our family, and are selling our waterfront lot with dock permit in hand for $175,000. If you are interested in seeing the lot when you stay at our cottage let me know. Beaufort is becoming a retirement destination and we are thrilled that many of our guests want to move here!

Charlie Calvert purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Charlie Calvert chose Beaufort

This is our personal guest cottage used by family and friends for overflow from our home. Many family and friends inquired about having friends stay there after enjoying Downtown Beaufort so much, so we decided to make it available.

There are VERY few properties as close to the waterfront as this property.

It is on a one way street, very quiet, upscale furnishings, residential feel, in an urban setting. The cottage is like a hotel suite, small kitchen area for coffee, microwave, bar fridge and sink. There is no washer and dryer, this is like a hotel suite.

What makes this cottage unique

Fully refundable deposit for any Parris Island Marine Family that needs to cancel.

Awesome, downtown location. This cottage is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and historical attractions. You can see the Historic Arsenal, now the Beaufort Visitors Center, from the front door! Convenient to Paris Island for graduations.

Everything we needed+!

  • 5 of 5

While in Beaufort for a wedding at the end of April, my husband, son and I chose to go through VRBO instead of staying at the designated hotel. The location was very convenient. We enjoyed the beauty of the Spanish moss and the smell of jasmine during our short walks to the restaurants and shops. There was absolutely no comparison between being in a one room hotel to what we got here and the amenities were better! The owners, Fran & Charlie, were very helpful -- quick to answer any question or issue we had. We didn't want to leave and are ready to go back!

Marine graduation

Very quaint cottage located on a nice, quiet block. The cottage is very neat and clean. Everything we wanted to see/experience was within a 15 minute drive. The owners are very kind and accommodating. Really great for a short stay. Highly recommend.

Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed just a few days and this place is the perfect location! Walking distance to downtown. It's very nice and relaxing to come back to after a long day. The owners are so sweet and amazing! They offer to help in any way they can. If we get to come back to Beaufort for another vacation, we will be staying here!!

Great cottage in historic area

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfect for visiting Beaufort. It is located mere steps from the Visitor's Center which was ideal to help plan our days. The historic point, beautiful waterfront park and great shops were only a couple blocks away. It was nice to be able to park and walk where you wanted to go. It was also very convenient for visiting the sea islands just across the bridge. This was a very peaceful location and I would recommend Beaufort and The Cottage at Arsenal to anyone.

Peaceful little town, nice little cottage

  • 4 of 5

This small little house is a great substitute to a hotel at the price. It is effectively a 2 bedroom suite with kitchenette. The one bedroom has no door, just an open walkway to the living area. This was somewhat odd. It has a free street parking place out front, but between 8am and 4pm someone will take it if you leave. A washer and dryer would have been much appreciated.

Town is a beautiful place to walk or drive around with an amazing waterfront park, interesting old houses, and a very nice down town area. My toddler was entertained with the wonderful toy store in town that has toys and a train set for kids to play with as well as the playground in the waterfront park. We also found a nice park back up the main road a few blocks. Captain Dick gave a nice boat tour. The beach at Hunting Island is a bit of a drive at 30 mintues away, but even the drive back to the beach from the road is beautiful. With only a 1.5 hour drive to Savannah, we went there twice during our stay.

The house is a nice little place in a peaceful little town. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary: Thanks for staying with us and for your positive review. Your are correct, the cottage is like a Hotel Suite- that is why we have a "kitchen area" : microwave, coffee maker, bar fridge and sink- and not a full kitchen. Also, we send out the linens and do not have a washer and dryer on site for that reason. You are correct about parking, being 2 blocks from Bay street, parking can be a little tight during the day, but the grass lot one cottage before the house can be used anytime the street out front is full. So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you again for your review, Sincerely, Charlie and Fran

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the past weekend at the Air Show and the location of the cottage was perfect, not only for the air show, but also for wandering around downtown and visiting the other islands. The owner is super helpful in making your stay as worry free as possible. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are visiting Beaufort. We certainly hope to be back!

This cottage is perfectly situated to get out and enjoy the day in beautiful Downtown Beaufort and the Waterfront Park. Have breakfast at the Palm and Moon Bagel or Blackstone Cafe, both on the same one way street as the cottage.

At night, walk down Scott Street to Bay Street and have your choice of waterfront dining. ( Plums, Saltus, Panini's ) .

After dinner, sit on the water front swings and relax on the Bayfront. Then walk back to the cottage- no parking necessary.

Shop on walkable Bay Street- Jewelry, Gifts, Clothing, Outfitters- to name a few.

You may also walk one block over ( East) and cross Carteret Street to take a walkable tour of the Old Point- home to AnteBellum homes, and the setting for movies such as Forest Gump, The Great Santini, The Big Chill and other movies. Beaufort Day Spa is just one block away @ 304 Scott Street. The Historic Arsenal that houses the Visitor Center can be seen from the front door, and is open every day. Please stop in and ask the staff for recommendations about Beaufort!
