During the Civil War an artillery battery was constructed at Belle Isle to protect Georgetown harbor known as Battery White. The ramparts initially were dug by slaves and are still visible along with two original Columbiad cannons. Belle Isle boasts 13 members of the National Live Oak Society. In 1925 Belle Isle Gardens were opened to the public. Churchill, Roosevelt, and Bernard Baruch were among the many notable visitors to the gardens..Also included is access to the Belle Isle Beach House located on the ocean beach at Pawleys Island, 17 miles north of Georgetown. This house has a screened porch and deck with rocking chairs overlooking the wide white sand beaches of the Atlantic. Attached is a wooden walkway linking directly to the beach. For golfers Myrtle Beach is just 32 miles to the north and at last count (2013) there were 117 golf courses along the Grand Strand. Historic Charleston is an easy 50 mi drive to the south with its many attractions.
The property was exactly what we needed and more. The peaceful setting is something that we enjoyed as well as the proximity to downtown Georgetown too. The provided hospitality, cleanliness and venue were perfect for us.
