Jenkins Creek Farm House

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 max!)

The Jenkins Creek Cottage provides total quiet from the noise and aggravations of hotels and motels as it encompasses 13 acres! Located on St. Helena's Island, it is just 10 minutes from downtown Beaufort, SC. Walk the grounds or drink your coffee or wine at the end of the covered dock on the property. Sunrise to sunset, this breezy tidal creek is a nature lovers delight.

Jenkins Creek Cottage is leased by the week, long weekend or month. It is not simply a vacation home as it is a true hideaway from the hub-bub of life. It is ideal for those who are interested in looking over the Beaufort area or simply want a respite. It is fully furnished and although we love animals, we ask for no pets. The upper level bedroom has no bathroom so pls be advised that the house is not designed for 3-4 couples who want privacy!

There is an 8 foot deep pond right next to the house so your scenic view from the screened porch is lovely. Warning: we are 1/2 mile down a dirt road which we maintain in good condition (weather permitting!). We have an outdoor barbeque/oyster pit too!

We have just completed the upper attic loft area. It is upstairs and has no bathroom but has 4 twin beds under eves and a playroom area for kids/teens. It is ideal for a family or 2-3 couples. We do not accept 8+ people as the house is designed for smaller groups.

Stunning retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience we had visiting JC! The property is beautiful, the home is comfortable and very clean and the amenities were amazing. The owners are an incredibly gracious, lovely family. Virtually equidistant from both town and the beach, with wonderful restaurants and local shops around the corner, this home is the perfect place for anyone seeking a relaxing getaway in the heart of the Lowcountry.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had been wanting to stay here for a long time and finally we were able to Memorial Day weekend. This is a rare opportunity to stay at a place with so much land to roam and privacy. From the dock to all the level land and the long drive in and out, you could spend a lot of time and it will not be enough. We plan on coming back in another season and the owners are great. We agree this was our best vrbo pick we ever had.

Great location as well, as you are in the middle between Hunting state park and Beaufort.

We will return! (wish we could retire here :))

Quiet, peaceful retreat on St. Helena Island!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, secluded, peaceful, and serene. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to be. I knew what the property offered from the description, but the Jenkins farm exceeded our expectations. We loved the long, meandering driveway that led to the home. We loved that we were able to see wildlife...turkeys, eagles, deer. We had access to a pier that jutted way out to the waterway and watched beautiful sunsets from it. We watched sunrises from the screened porch. The house was fully stocked, had tons of character and charm, and we felt right at home. We really didn't want to leave...wished we could have stayed another week! Thank you Beth and Dr. Gene for your hospitality!

Wonderful place to go with your family and "unplug". Very private. House was nicer than expected

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Getaway. Our family (my wife and two girls) had a great time. It is secluded yet still very convenient to the beach, restaurants, and grocery store. You are literally at the end of a road that stops in the marsh. We fished and crabbed off the dock. We caught plenty of crab and also managed to catch some redfish and trout with the bait we caught in the creek. The owners (Mr and Mrs Grace) were readily available but not intrusive. No problems or complaints. Everything was as advertised. We hope to return soon

Great area for history buffs as Beaufort is over 300 yrs old and has two of SC's 3 National Historic Landmark Districts w/ antebellum homes. The town of Beaufort is fabulous walking, dining and shopping area. The state park, Hunting Island, is very close by. Beaufort is the home of The Penn Center-- another National Landmark District. Many local nature activities are available.
