WATER VIEW COTTAGE - PRIVATE ISLAND - COLLETON RIVER PLANTATION

Bluffton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2Bath, Sleeps 4

Located on a 150 acre private island within the gates of Colleton River Plantation*, this cottage sits on one of the prettiest, most unique sites in the Hilton Head area. The 'Devil's Elbow Cottage' is nestled among ancient Live Oak trees overlooking the marshes and waters of Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge.This very comfortable cottage has high ceilings and large windows that create a light atmosphere and lets you enjoy this special setting. Built in 1992 and recently updated, it and the adjacent 'main house' are the only houses on the island.

Enjoy the best of both worlds. Experience the natural realm of the Lowcountry Bluffton/Hilton Head region of years past yet be a short drive from all of the beaches, shopping and amenities of one of the world's foremost resort areas.

Natural World: Listen to the warblers in the Oaks and the Snapping Shrimp in the marsh below as you doze off for your afternoon nap on the porch. Buy seasonal vegetables from the organic farmer on the island before he goes to the farmer's market. Set the crab trap from the dock or cast a net for shrimp and enjoy the seafood bounty of the Lowcountry. Sight fish for Redfish from a kayak on the flats of the adjacent islands. Bring your boat and explore the miles of inland waters of the area.

Back to Reality: If the natural world gets to be too much for you it is a ten minute drive to highway 278 and all of the shopping, dining, golf and beaches that you could desire. Visit the galleries of Bluffton's old town. Take the beautiful drive to Charleston or spend a day in Savannah or Beaufort.

Colleton River Plantation: Colleton River Plantation is a private community and the amenities are for the use of members and their guests only. Rental does not convey use of the amenities.

a perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5
oh my gosh!? where to start? my husband and i had fallen in love with bluffton a few years back, and couldn't wait to revisit. we typically stay at the palmetto bluff inn {montage now,} but wanted something a little more personal and homey. elbow's cottage blew us away. our expectactions were already high, but our stay and the hospitality from peter and his wife exceeded those expectations.
a beautiful property that feels like it's out of a magazine, and a cottage that delivers your every need. i spent most of my time on the screened porch {two ceiling fans + table and sofa.} there was so much space out there.
we didn't miss any of our comforts of home either {direct TV, nice linens, great appliances, and an immaculate house overall.}
thank you so much for the loveliest of vacations. we cannot wait to return.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
We were excited by the pictures but were not prepared for what we saw when we got there. We both felt that this was the perfect place for us, and we hadn't even been inside yet. There are so many things that just grabbed me...the colors of the palmettos against the oaks, the sounds of all the insects and birds in and around the marsh...and OH! the marsh itself. The fragrances coming from that were just incredible. In so many ways this setting just grabbed my soul and held it. Once we went inside we knew we were home. The layout of the house worked so well for us. The kitchen is so functional that meal prep was easy. The furniture is comfortable and the master bed is to die for. We found ourselves sitting on the screened porch both morning and night. It had to be our favorite place as it was just so peaceful. Each morning a male and female cardinal pair came up outside the porch an talked to us. DO NOT miss going to the pier and watching the dolphins go by. They will stop, and with their tail fins, toss the water around so that they can get a bunch of shrimp for dinner.
FIVE stars is the best rating we can give it, but it deserves more.

This cottage would work well for a quite vacation of doing nothing all day or as a base of operations for an action packed vacation. Being on the island is like being on another world. It is so quite, save for the sounds of the breezes and insects, but just minutes from the outside world.

We loved every minute of being there and if at all possible, we will be going there again in the future.

A few words about the area:
If you are into shopping, anything and everything you could want is just 3-5 miles away. Bring your mountain bikes with you too. This island is a fun place to ride on, as are the trails in the plantation. If you go to Hilton Head Island, there are bike trails everywhere. Not just trails here and there, but trails that take you everywhere. You do not need a car once there. Plan on riding on the beach too. If you have never done this you are in for a treat.

5 stars not enough. Husband said to give it a bad rating so no one else would find out about this wonderful hidden paradise. What a treat!!! Loved seeing the wildlife.

Enchanting refuge

  • 5 of 5
The photos on the website drew us in, capturing a serene beautiful place. It was exactly what we needed. The quiet and solitude is priceless. The owners have appointed the cottage with everything you need to settle in and simply enjoy. We cooked two dinners while there for friends, no plastic or junk utensils here. The gas grill was waiting the ready for our fresh caught fish, steamer baskets for organic asparagus, not a single "wish we had this or that". The views from the master bedroom early morning were tranquil, a beautiful start to each day. Afternoon wine on the screened in porch perfect. We were delighted and expect our next visit will be extended to at least ten days. Bears Island is a wondrous place. Enjoy!!

Get Away from it ALLLL!!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I stayed a week at Devil's Elbow. Once we arrived I never left until it was time to go. It was the most relaxing, calm, beautiful vacation we have had. We travel A LOT and it is mostly active travel. This vacation was a sit, read, walk, bike, cook, have wine, walk again type of holiday. But...the home is very close to many vacation type of things (shopping, restaurants, historical places, etc). The home was beautiful with everything in order and the cleanest place I have EVER stayed...with quality sheets, towels, etc. We Loved it and plan on returning many times. And...the owners are the BEST...

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two children had such a great experience at this cottage. It is a private sanctuary in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of Hilton Head Island. Not only is the cottage itself wonderful, but the setting is awesome. The views are amazing. We loved it and will definitely try to stay there when we return to the area.
