About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4), High Celings, Tile floors, Bright

Welcome to the Cottage at The 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 cottage is beautifully furnished with 2 Queen beds and a living room with a big Harvest table and comfortable leather couch. One bathroom has a shower (no tub). The other bathroom is an extra large half bath. The kitchenette includes a Microwave, Keurig coffee machine with starter supplies and small Refrigerator and granite countertop. This is not a cooking kitchen. The entire cottage is beautifully tiled throughout with Central Air and Heat. Private bricked courtyard off Master Bedroom. The master bed is made of antique pine , and has an antique drop leave side table.

The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, with a tall dresser and built in reading lamps on the wall.

The house is a 1950's RENOVATED BLOCK cottage, drywall over block, high ceilings, all new: electrical, plumbing and windows.

Great area. Location Location Location.

The surrounding homes are mostly owner occupied, not short term rental.

You can park right in front of the cottage.

We are very careful about pest control and cleanliness, and have contracted with a national pest control company.

Across the street is a small Historic synagogue and next to that is the Methodist Church. The cottage is on a one way street, which is extremely quiet and safe.

Parking can be on street, or in the grass lot right before the cottage.

The house has 9 foot ceilings and the master has a vaulted ceiling.

*****FREE WIFI WIRELESS and ~100 channels on the CABLE TV.*****

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 Beaufort

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.

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!

Lovely!

The cottage was much more spacious on the inside than it appears from the outside. Quaint and charming, walking distance to the waterfront. Well furnished and very clean. Highly recommended.

This place is a great deal! It's located just a couple blocks from Beaufort's main street. The owners were not only very accommodating but also very respectful of our privacy. This trip will be difficult to top.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We went to Beaufort for a girl's weekend and the house was everything we expected and more. It was so cute and so convenient to downtown, restaurants, bars and shopping. We are definitely going to book this in the near future for another trip. Charlie was easy to work with and was very responsive every time I bugged him to ask questions about places to go, things to see, etc. It was safe and convenient and cute and easy check-in and checkout. My only my fear is that my good review is going to give away the secret gem :)
