Welcome to Wren Cottage!

Our two story house is light and airy and decorated in the colors of the beach. The huge great room has a cathedral ceiling, comfortable seating and romantic views of Palm and Live Oak Trees, dripping with Spanish Moss. Take in a movie with the family on the TV and DVD player.

The kitchen and dining room are bright and and well stocked with all the conveniences of home. There are 8 chairs at the table and 3 stools at the counter for ample seating. Meals taste best when enjoyed outside on the elevated deck. There's a charcoal grill for the chef in the family.

Upstairs is the spacious master bedroom with a jacuzzi-syle tub and a two-seat shower ensuite bathroom. The queen size bed is comfortable for sleeping or watching a movie on the TV and DVD player. We also have free WIFI to check your e-mail.

Two bedrooms are on the first floor, one with a queen size bed, one with three twin beds for the kids. There's also a pack-n-play for the baby. We've also provided several baby gates for extra security around steps inside and out. Both bedrooms have TV's.

We will be happy to assist you in renting a custom 4 or 6 person golf cart.

Unique, charming, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wren Cottage is welcoming and comfortable. The furnishings were thoughtful and attractive-with accents reflecting this unique location.

The Fripp Island location is secure and friendly even in the Winter. Designated as a Natural Preserve, the wildlife are protected and part of the community. Deer were dear and tame.

I would gladly return to this cottage for future visits - possibly to experience different seasons. Sea Turtles in the Spring?

Many thanks to the owners for their thoughtfulness and caring in sharing this place.

A new favorite!

  • 5 of 5

Last week me and my family went to Fripp Island for the first time. Normally every year we go somewhere new but we are already planning to re-visit Fripp Island next year! Wren cottage was beautiful, comfortable, and very close to the action. The owner was super easy to to get in touch with and helped us several times with information about the island. We have two children and they cried for several nights in a row after our trip because next summer seems too long to wait to go back! We fell in love with the island and the cottage. I would whole heartedly recommend this house!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wren Cottage is the perfect family getaway! Location can't be beat. Just a few minutes' walk to Rock Beauty beach access, the boardwalk over the marsh and the main clubhouse. My husband & I stayed a week with our 4 year old and it was the most special family time we've ever had. We ate every meal around the family table and enjoyed movie nights in the upstairs master. My toddler & husband loved using the master for their man cave where they could hang out together. The layout of this home is great because you have the master suite upstairs, giving you privacy from the rest of the house (it was our mom & dad movie space after little one went to bed). Very nice that all light switches were labeled and the kitchen was stocked with an abundance of pots & pans and even casserole dishes. There were also plenty of beach chairs, toys & boogie boards. And some nice extras such as safety gates, kid/baby toys, and a booster seat too. Tons of beach towels and a very nice outdoor shower to rinse off all the sand. Wren Cottage provided everything we needed for a very special family getaway. We already have plans to return a couple of times over the next year. Thank you Lynn!

Our vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6 year vacationing at Fripp. We enjoy the island and the true since of relaxation. This was our first stay at this lovely beach home. It was nicely decorated and had an open concept. There were a lot of "extra" with the house. It was a great location, easy access to the beach and all the amenities of Fripp. Early in the morning you could see multiple deer around the house! Lynn, the owner was easy to work with and answered all questions we had.We will definitely stay here again. Can't wait til next summer.

Family Fripp Fav

  • 5 of 5

Wren Cottage provided a comfortable, beautiful and great location for our family vacation to Fripp!

Loved the decor!

Our three boys, who have never been to any other beach other than Fripp, voted this house their favorite!

I think the size and location was such a good fit for us.

The golf cart worked out well through Carolina Custom Carts, and I will rent from them from now on!

Everything was perfect!

Girls week

  • 5 of 5

We had six adult women for the week in the home. When we walked in, everyone said, "WOW". This really was a beauftiful home and very clean and well kept. Fully stocked with beach toys, linens, and kitchen items. We felt right at home and never were crowded. This was our first time on Fripp island and after getting to know our way around, the location of this home is superb. I don't think we could have chosen a better location. The owner was exceptionally easy to deal with and very organized. I would rent here again.
