Welcome to the Cottage by the Historic Arsenal! Located at 404 Scott Street. This 2 BR/1.5BA was renovated in 2010. This cottage was our weekend home until we purchased a larger home for our family that is also Downtown. Walking distance to everything, you can park your car and never need it again until you leave downtown Beaufort. 40 steps from Beaufort Visitor Center (the Historic Arsenal). Very quiet. Bright and Clean. Great area. Since you do not know the area or location, we have added pictures on all sides and behind the house so that you can see how great the surroundings are, no surprises!
1 block away from great restaurants, 1 block from Beaufort Day Spa,
2 blocks from Bay Street and the beautiful Waterfront Park, and 2 blocks from the Historic Old Point neighborhood with beautiful AnteBellum Mansions.

The other bathroom is an extra large half bath. The kitchenette includes a Microwave, Keurig coffee machine with K-Cup supplies and small Refrigerator and Granite Countertop.

The master bed is made of antique pine , armoire, two side tables, lamps, and ceiling fan with lights and two ceiling can lights.
The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, with a antique pine dresser and built in reading lamps on the wall, and two can lights overhead.

About Charlie Calvert
My wife and I are native South Carolinians. We live in Beaufort about a mile from the Cottage.We are available if you need anything as we are owner/managers. Beaufort is becoming a retirement destination and we are thrilled that many of our guests want to move here!
Charlie Calvert purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Charlie Calvert chose Downtown
This is our personal guest cottage used by family and friends for overflow from our home. Many family and friends inquired about having friends stay there after enjoying Downtown Beaufort so much, so we decided to make it available. There are VERY few properties as close to the waterfront as this property. It is on a one way street, very quiet, upscale furnishings, residential feel, in an urban setting. The cottage is like a hotel suite, small kitchen area for coffee, microwave, bar fridge and sink. There is no washer and dryer, this is like a hotel suite.
What makes this Cottage unique
Fully refundable deposit for any Parris Island Marine Family that needs to cancel. Awesome, downtown location. This cottage is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and historical attractions. You can see the Historic Arsenal, now the Beaufort Visitors Center, from the front door! Convenient to Paris Island for graduations.

Comfortable clean and larger than expected with vaulted ceilings
Great weekend place to explore. Lots of history. Property is in the center of it all. We made a quick day trip to Savanna which was terrific. Enjoyed the sites in an around Beaufort and the peacefulness of the town
Cute little cottage with great location to historic downtown Beaufort
Cute cottage with two bedrooms and one and a half baths so we each had our own bed and privacy. The price was perfect. The little courtyard/patio could be fixed up to be more usable because the weather was lovely and it would have been nice to sit out there but the ground is uneven and tripping was a problem. Parking could be a problem sometimes depending on the time of day. All in all, a great stay in a cute convenient cottage.
Cute little cottage
We enjoyed our stay overall. We loved being 2blocks from downtown. The bedroom was very cozy.
Our only complaints were that the patio area is very overgrown and not very inviting. Also the shower bottom is weak and feels as if you’ll fall through it.
Thank you Alyson, glad you enjoyed the cottage And your early check in. The shower has been recently inspected , . The back patio is surrounded by bamboo and we do our best to keep it cut back , but will check it today! Thank you so much
PERFECT AS ALWAYS
We have stayed here several times and every time we say how perfect it is and how great Charlie is. If you have any needs he can bring to you , HE DOES. The home is beautiful and perfectly located , everything is within walking distance. WE love his place and are scheduled to return in October. Thank you Charlie for allowing us to stay in your home and all that you do!!!

Dear Theresa, thank you so much for your kind words. We look forward to having you visit again!, Sincerely Charlie and Fran
Wonderful cottage in the heart of historic Beaufort
This is a really perfect space, comfortable and ideally located within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. The owners were very accommodating with our schedule and we couldn’t have asked for more. A great place to stay!
Thank you Dylan, So glad you enjoyed your stay!
We could not have been more pleased with our stay. My wife and I stayed 4 days in it and enjoyed every minute. This cottage is a couple minutes walk from downtown, and truly embodies the heart of Beaufort. The owner and family were also a delight to rent from, they made sure they stayed in contact with us and made sure we were happy. The cottage itself was impeccably cleaned, and has a cozy, family feel. The cottage is much larger than it may appear and even has an adorable little back patio. Enjoyed our stay tremendously and will rent again!
Thank you so much! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, looking forward to having you all come visit again!
This cottage is perfectly situated to get out and enjoy the day in beautiful Downtown Beaufort and the Waterfront Park. Have breakfast at the Palm and Moon Bagel or Blackstone Cafe, both on the same one way street as the cottage.
At night, walk down Scott Street to Bay Street and have your choice of waterfront dining. ( Plums, Saltus, Panini's ) .
After dinner, sit on the water front swings and relax on the Bayfront. Then walk back to the cottage- no parking necessary.
Shop on walkable Bay Street- Jewelry, Gifts, Clothing, Outfitters- to name a few.
You may also walk one block over ( East) and cross Carteret Street to take a walkable tour of the Old Point- home to AnteBellum homes, and the setting for movies such as Forest Gump, The Great Santini, The Big Chill and other movies. Beaufort Day Spa is just one block away @ 304 Scott Street. The Historic Arsenal that houses the Visitor Center can be seen from the front door, and is open every day. Please stop in and ask the staff for recommendations about Beaufort!
