About Doug Mendel

Magpie Cottage is a life-long dream come true for us. We love Beaufort as our second home and hope you will come to enjoy it as much as we and our family do.

Doug Mendel purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Doug Mendel chose Pigeon Point

We've vacationed for years on the coasts of the Southeast. When we finally made it to Beaufort we found everything we were looking for in all those travels - unspoiled natural beauty and a vibrant community that shares a unique culture, food and way of life.

What makes this bungalow unique

When we stepped into this cottage, its sunlight and cheerfulness captivated us immediately. The Great Room has eight full-length windows. Magpies love shiny things - and this bright house seemed to embody that spirit of light and curiosity. Along with that, it provides the perfect blend of old-time character and new convenience.

In the heart of the Lowcountry, Beaufort is located on Port Royal Island, one of the inner Sea Islands of South Carolina.

Beaufort is renowned for its scenic location and its unspoiled historic character through the preservation of its unique antebellum architecture and the region’s vibrant and still evolving history.

Beaufort is home to some of the country’s best outdoor sports, beaches, antiques and shopping and is known for its military establishments, particularly its close proximity to Parris Island, the U.S. Naval Hospital, and the Marine Corps Air Station.

Beaufort’s downtown is full of restaurants, art galleries, antique shops and more – all tucked into its beautiful waterfront. More shopping and sight-seeing can be had at Hilton Head which is about 45 minutes south; Savannah, about an hour south, and Charleston, about an hour and a half north - all close enough for day trips.

For outdoor lovers, the ACE Basin area is a paradise; activities include beaches and golf, hunting, fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, bicycling, and all types of nature study.

Very Clean and Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

We utilized Magpie for three nights to attend my son's Marine Corp. graduation. The location was close to Parris Island. It was very clean and quiet. The home owner was very quick to answer questions. We enjoyed our stay and we're pleased that it was as nice as the pictures provided.

Sweet cottage in Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

Magpie Cottage is located in a quiet part of Beaufort near Pigeon Point. It is still an easy walk to the downtown area which makes it quite ideal.

The three bedrooms were comfortable and suited our needs very well. The kitchen and bathrooms were well-equipped and very clean.

The backyard was peaceful and there was a bbq on the deck. One needs several days in Beaufort in order to enjoy all there is to do there.

The cottage was adorable and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We went down to Beaufort with family for my brother's graduation. He is now a marine! The cottage was perfect and so clean. The owners were amazing and provided us with lots of information about the area. We felt like we were going to stay at a friend's house and we haven't even met Them! They gave great recommendations on things to do in the area and places to eat. I would highly recommend staying here! We definitely will stay again if we ever come back to Beaufort!

Lovely little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Magpie Cottage! The place is filled with interesting artwork and amenities to make you feel at home. You'll have plenty of space for the entire family--complete with a great variety of board games, books, videos and a well-stocked kitchen. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice and quiet location. The cottage is close to Parris Island and worked well for the Marine graduation we were attending. The cottage is cute and well maintained. We enjoyed the enclosed portion of the porch. The beach chairs and cooler came in handy for a day at the beach. We also enjoyed Beaufort’s water front area, a sunrise nearby at pigeon point boat launch, and an evening at the water festival. The owners kindly called us the evening of our arrival to verify we made it and everything was in working order. We would gladly stay here again in the future.

Perfect Lil' Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Was perfect for my short visit to Beaufort. I've told everyone about it and encouraged them to look you up should they ever need somewhere quiet and nice to stay. Everything was close by and even though the traffic is a bit hectic with the construction, it was still fairly easy to navigate.
