About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 3

This lovely unit, called Sweetgrass, is on the street level. It has two bedrooms, one queen bed and one small full bed (suitable for 2 children or 1 adult) and one bath (connected to each bedroom), hardwood floors throughout, cable TV, and a fully equipped kitchen. Relax on the porch and furnished patio surrounded by 100 year old oak trees draped with Spanish moss, lovely gardens and historic homes.

This carriage house, recently brought back to life after many years of neglect, sits next to our home, Craven House (seen in Southern Living Magazine). It truly is the best location in Beaufort allowing one to walk to restaurants, shops, museums and the waterfront park by the marina. It is an easy drive to Paris Island, the Sands beach in Port Royal and Hunting beach on the ocean.

Linens, including beach towels, are included. Household items/appliances include microwave, Kurig coffee maker, high-definition television, gas range and electric oven, cookware, disposal, fridge, pop-up toaster, internet connection, hairdryer, iron and board, dishes, tea, coffee, toilet paper, paper towels and French milled soap.

About Ellen and Mike Tomy

When Mike and I purchased Craven House, it had been neglected for many years. After a lot of hard work it is now reborn. It truly is a magical place and we love living here with our three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Katie, Chippy, and our newest, Bonny Blue.

Ellen and Mike Tomy purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ellen and Mike Tomy chose Historic District

The Carriage House on Craven is central to all that is happening in Beaufort. During the many yearly festivals, parking is not easy to find in town. Just stay at the carriage house, leave the car and the festivals are a block away. Meander through one-of-a-kind shops on Bay Street and enjoy fresh local seafood in Beaufort's unique restaurants. If you don't want to eat out, a fully fitted kitchen is ready for you.

What makes this cottage unique

Set back from the street, the patio is a quiet place to sit and visit with friends or have a romantic dinner. Surrounded by historic homes and churches built in past centuries, one is taken back into the 19th century Old South. We live on the property and are at your beacon call anytime you need anything.

Beautiful home, unbeatable location, fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the ground floor unit and had a wonderful weekend (there was no issue with noise from the upper unit). The home is beautifully furnished with lots of little extras that made our stay very comfortable. The hosts were extremely kind and helpful and had provided lots of information to help us get around Beaufort. The location really is unbeatable and everything was in walking distance. In fact, when we took the carriage tour through the historic district the tour guide pointed out this property as there is an old building on the property that was built for freed slaves after the war, and the owners are renovating it. Can't say enough wonderful things about this place!

Our visit and stay at the Carriage House was really beyond words. Each aspect of the property is designed to make the stays something to remember and the hosts truly have made this effort come to fruition. We would return without hesitation. It is that impressive.

Car: recommended

The carriage house has wonderful views of historic homes. The trees block the view of the water, but it is just a block away. Park the car and walk to museums, restaurants, shops, marina and art galleries. Or take a horse drawn carriage ride along the streets of the beautiful historic district. Go for a drive to Hunting beach and climb the lighthouse. Stop in the colorful shops and road side vegetable stands along the way.
