About carol

We are retired and live in Michigan, but love to visit Beaufort as often as possible. In the meantime we would like others to enjoy it as well.

carol purchased this house in 2008

Why carol chose South Carolina

The charming town of Beaufort is like going back in time to the civil war era of Antabellum homes and a slower pace of living. If you take the carriage ride thru town they will point out homes where movies were made such as 'Prince of Tides' 'The big Chill' 'Forrest Gump' and many more. The scenery is so awesome that even holiday has discovered it.

What makes this house unique

Our property is unique as you are one with nature and it is so quiet. There are only 4 homes on this water frontage. 2 bikes are available and a well trained dog is allowed.

WOW, I could not say enough to explain the most wonderful stay we had at TreeTop. The house was clean. Had everything in it that we had forgot. The owner Carol is so very nice to talk to and get things set for our stay. I would recommend anyone who is going to stay in this area to stay here. And to be 10 minutes from USMC for family day and graduation was the best part. Thank you so much Carol.

Beaufort stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Treetops!Amazing views and away from from the city.You are still very close to town to pick up dinner. The kitchen is great to cook in. The master bedroom is perfect! Hunting Island is the perfect beach to go to. Lovely stay and this was our 2nd visit there.

The Perfect 'Getaway From it All' House

  • 5 of 5

Treetops is the perfect location for a 'getaway from it all' but still 'close to everything' home. We loved both the privacy of the home and the convenient location (less than 10 minutes to downtown Beaufort). The location also was great for exploring both north and south of Beaufort. The whole area is rich in natural beauty and history. Treetops owner, Carol, was very flexible in meeting our requests and making sure we enjoyed our stay.

Peace and quiet with an unbelievable view!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful weekend at Tree Tops. You have a very comfortable and beautiful getaway with a gorgeous view. We thought that you couldn't beat the marsh view until we discovered the view of the star filled sky at night!!! Your neighbors were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We hope to be able to request another weekend at Tree Tops soon!!

This place is GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

I just moved to Beaufort and stayed here with my family for 10 days while finding a place to live. This cottage is beautiful. It is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and it's decorated very nicely. There's a full kitchen, barbecue grill, wi-fi, cable TV, and two great bedrooms. The owner, Carol, is really nice and accomodating. The place is right on the broad river so you can sit on the deck and enjoy the watching the wildlife / sunsets. Highly recommend; we'll use again!
