Situated at the entrance to the Sea Island causeway, Black Banks Plantation is a unique and charming neighborhood, named for the original Black Banks Plantation house, built in 1801. The Cottage which was built in 1920 as a carriage house for the Plantation, is nestled a short distance from the main house, amid large, old live oaks and overlooks your very own private heated pool, outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace. All for your EXCLUSIVE use!

Features & Amenities: The house was completely renovated and decorated within the last several years and offers all the luxury, warmth and charm needed to make the most of a stay on this wonderful island, including upstairs deck and downstairs courtyard, luxury linens, fully functional kitchen and top-of-the-line Bosch washer & dryer! Enjoy this vacation paradise any time of year; mild winters are perfect for a swim in the heated pool and a snuggle by the fireplace.
(Quickly becoming the 'go-to' spot for a romantic celebration, we have been delighted at the number of anniversaries shared at the Cottage! And with a number of Honeymoons already scheduled, it appears that romance is truly in the air!)
And the romantic and relaxing options are many! Swim, cook outside on the large, built-in gas grill, throw a log on the gas-assisted outdoor fireplace and relax or put on your party shoes and head out for a gracious dinner at the nearby Cloister or Halyard's before going to Ziggy Mahoney's for dancing!
When you're done, come 'home' to this quiet, comfortable and charming alternative to the busy condo scene.
Other Activities: We are located several miles from the beautiful beach at East Beach at the Coast Guard Station and across the causeway from Sea Island beaches and the beautiful Cloister resort (membership required for entry).
My husband and I love to stay at Black Banks Cottage. It is clean, cozy, and close enough...but far enough away ~ allowing privacy, great bike rides, great food, and fun in the sun. We plan to make this a yearly trip celebrating happiness! It really does feel like our home away from home!
