About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 -1/2 Baths (1/2 is Outside Shower & is WONDERFUL!!!)

If you are looking for a getaway that offers peace and solitude, in stylish and tasteful accommodations, then check our calendar for availability and make your reservation today! This lovely cottage has been updated and beautifully decorated in a fine southern coastal flair. It is surrounded by live oaks draped with Spanish moss, and is central to all of Seabrook Islands charms. Come, relax, and enjoy Seabrook's uncrowded beaches; take a morning stroll on the nature trail; kayak on the many creeks and waterways; or bike on the quiet streets of the island. Seabrook is a lovely place to honeymoon or to reconnect with your loved ones and build memories to last a lifetime. Plus, Low Country Retreat has 4 Beach Bikes for your enjoyment! Don't worry about bringing your own bikes or having to rent them when you get here. They will be waiting on you and your family to tour the island! 6 Tommy Bahama Backpack Beach Chairs are also there so no need to pack your own. A brand new Weber Spirit Stainless Steel Grill has also recently added so you can grill those catches from the day or just a great steak or burger for the kids.

The Sleeping Loft is a huge hit with kids of all ages and is a completely customized with 4 built in galley style twin beds with drawers and cubby's for storage. Also in Kid Land there is a 32' Flat Screen/DVD Combo TV and X Box Gaming System so kids bring those games, or there are a few to choose from for your convenience! The master bedroom is bright and cheerful and has its own private fully renovated bathroom. It features a King Bed bed with a Thermarest mattress and down pillowtop. A flat screen HDTV in the corner will provide the morning news while you enjoy that first cup of coffee. The second bedroom offers a full size bed with a twin trundle bed.

Enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast, or have wine and an intimate conversation while seated inside the screened-in porch that features plenty of privacy. You can use the front porch for sitting in the sun, reading a book, or just to watch the deer as they wander by in the evenings. Inside the front door is the comfortable heart of the cottage, a spacious combined living room/dining room area with fireplace, HDTV with DVD, and plenty of seating. If you enjoy a good read, there is an excellent selection of books tucked away throughout the house and all of the books are appropriate for taking to the beach or porch. The galley kitchen is very functional and well equipped. You will also appreciate having a washer and dryer at your disposal.

If you wish, take advantage of the fabulous new community Lake House facility with its well-equipped fitness center, heated indoor pool, large outdoor pool, basketball court, playground, and many varied exercise classes. Or, explore old historic Charleston and discover the many fine restaurants, historic homes, old slave market, and art galleries. Guided horse and carriage tours of the battery and surrounding areas are also available and highly recommended. You will also want to visit the Ashley River Plantations at Drayton Hall, Magnolia House, and Middleton Place.

Amenity Cards are available for the Full Seabrook Island Club experience. We keep our rates low so you have the option!!! Passes are $25/day or $150/week.

Freshfields Village is located just outside the Seabrook Island gate and has many excellent shops, fine restaurants, a wonderful grocery with a large impressive wine selection, and a sports store where you can purchase everything you need for the beach. Don't miss Friday evening at Freshfields! Picnic on the lawn with a glass of wine and listen to a live band while the kids run, dance and play. Or take the kids to watch an outdoor movie on the lawn on Wednesday night.

Our cottage is meticulously maintained and frequently updated to maintain a fresh and stylish decor. The artwork, furnishings, and room colors have been carefully selected to reflect a sense of casual Low Country beach luxury. You'll find ceiling fans and ample lighting through-out. Underneath the cottage there is an enclosed utility shower that's perfect for rinsing off the beach sand before trekking upstairs. There's also plenty of room to stow away your gear--beach chairs, bikes, and fishing/crabbing equipment--or for children to play. And, covered parking for two cars is provided. Our cottage offers wireless high speed internet, satellite TV, local telephone service, and a gas grill. With the exception of beach towels, all linens are provided, and end-of-stay cleaning for 7 nights or more is included at no additional cost. Sorry but pets and smoking are not allowed.

About Harrison Summer

We love our Seabrook Island Retreat and love to share and make memories with our friends and guests! We cherish the low country and visit often through weekend trips and summer vacations with family and friends. The beaches of South Carolina and the Charleston area are especially significant to us because we both graduated from the College of Charleston. Our college tradition continues with our daughter (Hannah) who is a Junior at C of C AND our son Wade will be attending in the Fall of 2017 as well. We adore the charm and grace of old historic Charleston and spent many hours wandering the alleys and streets, enjoying the night life, and admiring the architecture. We enjoy coming down to Seabrook Island every chance we get! We keep our home updated and decorated with casual elegance but you will find it is comfortable and a cozy place to relax.

Why Harrison Summer chose Seabrook Island

Seabrook is a private gated island community. Every effort has been taken to preserve the natural beauty of this low country paradise. We enjoy the centuries old live oaks, the vast salt marsh vistas, and the pristine beaches. Deer, raccoons, foxes, and bobcats are sighted daily here.

What makes this house unique

Seabrook is a wonderful escape. Our cottage is a great place to relax after spending time at the beach or visiting the historical Charleston sights nearby. Spring is our favorite time of year in Charleston. It is also the time of year that many of the homes and gardens in the 'South of Broad' district are open to the public. It is surprising what you'll find while wandering the small side streets between East Bay, Meeting, and King streets. We love the secret gardens and unique architecture of the downtown area. The self paced walking tours with guides that can be purchased from the Borders bookstore on Meeting St are a great way to get to know the history of Charleston. Just find a place to park your car and you can explore for hours. At the end of the day, we eat dinner at one of the many delightful restaurants near the old market. If we wish to escape the downtown crowd, we head back toward the cottage and stop by the Mustard Seed or Athens both on Maybank Hwy on James Island. Or cross over the bridge onto John's Island and eat at The Fat Hen or the Wild Olive!!! This could be the best food local food you will ever eat in South Carolina.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I went for a ladies weekend and the house was perfect for the six of us. The house is cozy, well stocked and has a great screened in porch. We were just blocks from the beach, perfect for getting some exercise, shopping and dining close by, as well.

Warm and enchanting!

  • 5 of 5

You can pack a lot of fun and family into this delightful home! The way they built out the loft with 4 single beds allows for parents & kids to have their own space. My group of girlfriends and I went down for my birthday for a long weekend & had a great time. I highly recommend this place- gorgeous and comfortable.

We Love Seabrook And This House!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the same week we had this year as last. Love, Love, Love it! The Beaches at Seabrook are so nice and clean. Their beach was voted one of the best in all SC! Your have to come to see it for yourself. No crowds just peaceful. So nice too that the home has beach bikes and plenty of beach chairs to use. With 4 kids it's a must to have that extra packing room in the car. This home has it all. Love it so more we booked same week next summer. The owners are so nice too. We feel part of their family. Best place on Seabrook for the $$$.
