About Doug Mendel

Magpie Cottage is a life-long dream come true for us. We love Beaufort as our second home and hope you will come to enjoy it as much as we and our family do.

Doug Mendel purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Doug Mendel chose Beaufort

We've vacationed for years on the coasts of the Southeast. When we finally made it to Beaufort we found everything we were looking for in all those travels - unspoiled natural beauty and a vibrant community that shares a unique culture, food and a way of life.

What makes this bungalow unique

When we stepped into this cottage, its sunlight and cheerfulness captivated us immediately. The Great Room has eight full-length windows. Magpies love shiny things - and this bright house seemed to embody that spirit of light and curiosity. Along with that, it provides the perfect blend of old-time character and new convenience.

Somewhat Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

After reading some of the other reviews, I was somewhat disappointed in our stay. The house was clean, definite plus. However, the whole area smells of sulfer (rotten eggs) and when I stepped inside, the smell permeated the house. Not sure if it just hadn't been rented in awhile or what. The toilet handle in the master bath had been broken previously and instead of being replaced, was glued back on. Needless to say the first time we tried to flush the toilet, the handle broke. Also, the cold and hot are backwards on the shower. On the plus side, there were plenty of linens, kitchen had everything you would need, lots of board games, etc. The area is very quiet and convenient to Parris Island and places to visit in Beaufort.

A Perfectly Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Magpie Cottage was perfect for our long weekend. There were two couples, one toddler, and our pups, and it was ideal. The house was clean and fresh, very comfortable, and with natural light from the many windows, created the perfect environment for our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking in, although we decided early on to eat most dinners at the delicious offerings of local restaurants. The neighborhood was nice for walking for dogs, with many trees giving shade, and beautiful old homes to view while walking. We walked to the waterfront on many occasions, and also rented bikes to explore the historic district. I can not say enough wonderful things about Magpie Cottage, it was perfect! Jan and Doug were super nice, and easy to communicate with, and quick to respond. We'd love to return!

Great location! A home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

While we have experienced what Beaufort has to offer numerous times over the years, Magpie Cottage was the perfect get-away and home-base to allow us to introduce our visiting UK friend to the area. Everything was in good order and as comfortable as our own home.

You couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

From the first contact with the homeowners, everything was right about this stay. They made sure that we were well taken care of. As for the house-WOW! It's everything we could ask for and more. Beautiful decor, great beds, stocked kitchen, perfect location... I could go on and on... For the first time ever, my kids were actually happy staying in to play board games and not always wanting to GO GO GO because this house was so awesome!

I have dreamed of retiring to Beaufort and this is exactly what I want to retire to.

When in the area, try a kayak tour with Beaufort Kayak Tours. Kim and David provided a wonderful kayak tour at Hunting Island.

I will most definitely stay at Magpie Cottage again, and soon I hope! Thanks Jan and Doug for sharing your beautiful home!

Wonderful Family Vacation House in Beautiful Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our four boys, absolutely loved our 4 nights at Magpie Cottage. From the moment we pulled into the driveway, we knew we had lucked out. The inside was roomy while still retaining a sense of coziness in large part because of the decor. All the furniture was comfortable and clean and bright and we had a hard time tearing ourselves away from the cottage to explore the low country. The location is a few minutes from the quaint downtown and the historic district and about a 30 minute drive to Hunting Island where we spent the day swimming, exploring and kayaking. My kids insisted we "get home" early enough in the evening to enjoy sunset from the screened in porch and we loved utilizing the fully equipped kitchen to make our own leisurely breakfasts before setting out sightseeing for the day. Jan, the owner, was incredibly helpful in recommending places to eat, a reliable kayak rental company, and answering questions regarding the history of Beaufort. My only regret is that we were not able to stay longer, but we definitely plan on coming for at least a week next year. Thank you so much Jan & Doug!

I loved the house. We were there for a wedding and used the Magpie as the family base. Loved the decor. Very nice.

Location was nice as well.

In the heart of the Lowcountry, Beaufort is located on Port Royal Island, one of the inner Sea Islands of South Carolina.

Beaufort is renowned for its scenic location and its unspoiled historic character through the preservation of its unique antebellum architecture and the region’s vibrant and still evolving history.

Beaufort is home to some of the country’s best outdoor sports, beaches, antiques and shopping and is known for its military establishments, particularly its close proximity to Parris Island, the U.S. Naval Hospital, and the Marine Corps Air Station.

Beaufort’s downtown is full of restaurants, art galleries, antique shops and more – all tucked into its beautiful waterfront. More shopping and sight-seeing can be had at Hilton Head which is about 45 minutes south; Savannah, about an hour south, and Charleston, about an hour and a half north - all close enough for day trips.

For outdoor lovers, the ACE Basin area is a paradise; activities include beaches and golf, hunting, fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, bicycling, and all types of nature study.
