LITTLE LUCY CRK RETREAT WATERFRONT, PRIVATE DOCK NEAR PARRIS ISLAND

Beaufort House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 and a half Baths, Water Views

If you want privacy, this is the place for you. This retreat is located on a tiny peninsula of land. When my grandfather purchased over 250 acres of Lady’s Island back in the late 1940’s, he always considered this 4 acre tract the jewel in the crown. It was his retreat from town long before my parents built a home here. Pap would come and put his boat in down at the shell ramp.

He’d cast his net in Little Lucy for those scrumptious creek shrimp to put over his grits. He fished around the bend at one of the best fishin holes in Beaufort County. He always dreamed of living here. Its location on one of the highest bluffs overlooking deep water on Lady’s Island made it an ideal home site.

So in the 1970’s my mom designed this home and had Elias Pinkney build it. The brick home, which is shaded by live oaks draped in Spanish moss commands views of more than 400 feet of the shoreline of Little Lucy Creek and its salt marshes. Each bedroom has its own unique view of the water.

From the Master Bedroom you can see the sunrise or moonrise over the dock on Little Lucy Creek. But from your queen size bed you have another view that looks down the creek and toward the sunset.

From the guest bedroom you also have a view of the dock on the creek. From the third bedroom each twin bed has a view of the creek and salt marsh. Enjoy your morning coffee at the kitchen table or on the screen porch with its panoramic views of the entire sunrise/sunset experience.

There is also seating out on the bluff so you can watch for the dolphins that swim by on the high tides or watch the stingrays, egrets and herons that come in to feed on low tide. We also have visits to the oyster bank below the bluff from a family of raccoons. Deer swim the creek to hide and feed among the magnolias and oaks. A pair of pileated woodpeckers has taken up residency in our piney woods by the dock.

This is our home and so we have tried to think of everything that might make your stay with us more comfortable. We have recently remodeled the interior to reflect our own love of Mid-Century modern furnishings( Very MadMen Like). There are lovely wood floors throughout. There are ceiling fans in almost every room and central heat and AC when desired. The giant living room with its 20 foot vaulted ceiling and open dining area were made for entertaining. For those who would rather stay inside there is seating in front of a 55 inch LED wide screen T.V.This service is provided through Direct TV. Computer access is through WIFI . A second TV is located in the Master Bedroom.

There is also seating in front of the wood burning stone fireplace. There is a large desk for visiting writers, computer users or grand kids working on jigsaw puzzles. The pillow top beds have soft sheets, comfy pillows and beautiful coverlets.

The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, cookware, china glassware and utensils. There are two and a half bathrooms for everyone’s comfort and privacy. There is also generous closet space throughout the house so that you can store all your gear and belongings during your visit.

The porch is equipped with seating for all and an outdoor patio has a gas grill. The new dock is equipped with a float and kayak launch. Or you can put your boat, kayak or canoe in down at the shell ramp right on the property. There is also a boat landing two miles away at Sam’s Point where Forest Gump was filmed.

Our retreat is within easy drive of Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah. It is @five minutes from all the necessary stores. A ten minute drive over a scenic bridge will get you to Downtown Beaufort with its shops, carriage rides and restaurants. In fifteen you can be at historic Port Royal and Paris Island. In twenty minutes you can be at one of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast at Hunting Island State Park and Lighthouse. There is a free pass to enter the park available during your stay.

For golfers there is a terrific public course at Cat Island . For nature lovers there are boat tours of the ACE basin. A notebook is available with information about our favorite things to do in the area and places to eat, shop and visit.

Or you may be like us and just sit on that porch watching the world of the tides come and go. They say that once you have smelled the pluff mud it gets in your veins and pulls you back just like the tides.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Annie, I want to thank you, Jack and Melissa for letting my Dad and me stay in your house on the creek. We had a wonderful time, and particularly enjoyed watching the tides, the birds, and the dolphins. One day an otter swam down the little stream that runs right in front of the bluff. My Dad loved Hunting Island State Park so much that we took our bikes there 4 out of the 6 days. What a nice unspoiled place. Thanks for sharing the pass. Melissa was a great hostess.

Jack and I are both musicians and spend the majority of our retired time playing music, attending concerts, fiddlers conventions and visiting with our family around the country. But when we need to renew ourselves we head for our home on this beautiful creek. We hope that you leave here as restored and refreshed as we do.

Ann Griffey Burgess purchased this house in 2008

This property has been in Annie's family since the 1950's. This was the place where the family celebrated holidays and important family events. We have always loved to go there to relax and unwind. We can kayak down the creek but often just relax on the porch with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and watch the tides come and go through the marshes.

First, we love that we have this incredible private panoramic view of Little Lucy

Creek from almost every room of the house. When we get tired of the view (almost never) the house is located near this quiet neighborhood where we can walk Polly our dog and safely take the grandkids bike riding. It's great being so close to Beaufort with great restaurants and shops. We are also so close to the beach at Hunting Island State park, which is one of the most pristine beaches we have ever been to. We go there as much in the winter as in the summer. There is a free pass to the Park available to you during your stay.

LOW COUNTRY DREAM

  • 5 of 5
This home was everything the description promised. Our favorite room in the house was the screened in porch where we stayed until dark every night. We loved the dock out on the tidal river and the abundant wildlife. All of the furnishing were comfortable and the house was spacious. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone interested in an authentic low country vacation.

LITTLE LUCY CREEK RETREAT

The house was immaculate with lots of windows to observe wildlife out on the creek. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. The owner was readily available to solve any issues that needed addressing. I would rent it again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I have rented VRBO properties in the Beaufort area for several years. I would have to say that the Little Lucy Creek retreat was the best. The home had everything that we and another couple who joined us, needed. The new dock was especially nice and allowed us to do some fishing. We also appreciated the Hunting Island pass, since the beach there has always been our favorite. We ate at both Dockside restaurants and I would say the original is the best. The Johnson Creek Tavern is always on our list of good seafood restaurants.

Owner's Response: Hey Dennis
We are so glad that ya'll had such a good time at the retreat. Glad you enjoyed the dock and hope the nightime lighting was helpful. We agree with you about those eating places. We need to mention Johnson Creek Tavern on our page. It is one of our favorites as well. Fall is one of our favorite times in Beaufort. The beach is beautiful and you almost have it to yourself. We're getting ready to go down at the end of this month. Looking forward to your next visit.

EXCELLENT LOCATION, FABULOUS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Lucy Creek Retreat for a week and it was exactly that...a retreat. The home was beautiful and the dock a lot of fun! Make sure to bring your crabbing and shrimping gear because the dock is an excellent spot to catch your dinner! Melissa was great and the pass for Island state park a real treat! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

SECOND STAY JUST AS REFRESHING AS THE FIRST!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 loves this retreat. Annie, Jack, and Melissa are a pleasure to work with. House and property as described. All of the comforts of home are available. We enjoyed fresh crabs from the dock once again this year. Dolphin were in the creek, we also saw an alligator under the dock this visit. The doe was back this year with 2 fawns along side. We went on the Southern Rose Carriage tour of Beaufort this year. It was an enjoyable "touristy" thing to do. We enjoyed the shopping at various shops on Bay Street. Put the state park pass to good use again with a few trips to the beach. Returned home well rested and refreshed, as it should be. Looking forward to returning again in the future.

Owner's Response: Diane,
So glad ya'll could come for another visit. Alligator! Wow that's a new one on us. Glad you saw the two fawns. They were still so tiny when we were last there that at first we thought they were rabbits till we saw the telltale spots. Please come back anytime.

PERFECT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
The house looks exactly like the pictures and was stocked with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. The screen porch with views of the creek was our favorite spot to sit. The pass to Hunting Beach is a very nice plus to visitors we went there almost every day and it is a beautiful beach! The owners are great and easy to work with. Beaufort is a wonderful small town and we enjoyed eating at several local restaurants. Will stay at this house again. We also appreciate that we could bring our dogs with us.
