Overview

About the property

Escape to this 1 bedroom 'luxury' cabin with expansive marsh views! A perfect retreat for couples, artists, writers and nature lovers looking to get away, yet still have charming Beaufort 15 minutes away.

Beaufort and St Helena are smaller and more relaxed than many of the coastal areas. The downtown area is charming and has the historic character of Charleston, without the crazy summer crowds.

St. Helena has a different feel. It is more rural and less polished than resorts like Hilton Head. There are farm stands and seafood markets everywhere. There is a small central area with several cute shops and art galleries. There is a fort, tabby ruins and Penn Center, the first school for freed slaves nearby. You can ride horses from a nearby stable on trails and the beach or rent kayaks and navigate the tidal creeks. It feels worlds away yet, we are about 15 minutes from downtown. 10 minutes from grocery and drug stores. Smaller markets and restaurants are just down the road, very close by.

The beach at Hunting Island is wonderful!!!! You drive through a maritime forest and there are no houses on the beach except for a few old cabins at one end. There is a lighthouse you can climb if you wish. It is 5 miles from the house and I provide a pass so that you can come and go as you please. This year it was voted the 7th best beach in the US and 5 of the ones ahead of it were in Hawaii!

January, February and March are rented at a discount for our northern neighbors wishing to escape the harsh winters for a few months.

About Elizabeth Sher

Im a Carolina girl who has traveled the world, but there is nowhere as special to me as the beautiful low country!

Elizabeth Sher purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Elizabeth Sher chose Beaufort area

My parents had a place nearby when I was growing up. I have alway loved this area. When I found this property it was overgrown to the point you could not see the marsh and the house was a mess. After many years and a total renovation I love my time here and am excited to be able to share it with others!

What makes this cabin unique

Marsh views from almost every room in the house. Laying in bed and watching the shrimp boats wind their way to the ocean as the sun rises. Napping or just relaxing with a book on the hanging bed day or night. Watching wildlife in the creek and marsh. Catching crabs off the dock or buying shrimp straight off the boat just down the road.

We enjoyed our time at the Sea Island Cabin and the surrounding area. Hunting Island Beach was great, local fresh seafood, and a great kitchen to cook it in, everyone we met were friendly and helpful. Comfortable and relaxing place to stay.

Amazing Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Watch the beauty of a sky on fire at sunset as a gentle breeze caresses your face and brings with it the smell of the marsh. Take the time to look and you will find that creek life abounds. Perhaps if you are lucky like us you will also get to see the family of otters that play along the creek like delightful little children enjoying the water.

Glitz and glamour? No. A quiet serene getaway that will allow you to unwind and recharge, YES!

The owner is amazing and the property is clean and well maintained.

Such a relaxing and beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be free of the day to day hustle and bustle...this is your place. Far enough away yet close enough to Downtown Beaufort and Hunting Island. Loved every minute of it. This kitchen had more appliances than a department store. Loved it! Thank you Elizabeth for sharing your home.

Amazing cottage that is incomparable to anything we've stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most peaceful place you can imagine. Elizabeth has made this cottage feel like a throwback from the good old days. Her attention to every detail was amazing. Just 15 minutes away from town but you feel 1000 miles away from everything in the cottage. We'll be back!
