Located on a 150 acre private island within the gates of Colleton River Plantation*, this cottage sits on one of the prettiest, most unique sites in the Hilton Head area.

Built in 1992 and recently updated, this little house sits adjacent to the 'main' house. They are the only houses on the island. Listen to the warblers in the oaks and the snapping shrimp in the marsh below as you doze off for your afternoon nap on the screened porch. Buy seasonal vegetables from the organic farmer on the island before he goes to the farmer's market. Set the crab trap from the dock or cast a net for shrimp and enjoy the seafood bounty of the Lowcountry. Sight fish for Redfish from a kayak on the flats of the adjacent islands. See hhionthefly on internet for fishing video and photos filmed in our back yard! If the natural world gets to be too much for you it is a ten minute drive to highway 278 and all of the shopping, dining, golf and beaches you could desire. Visit the galleries of Bluffton's old town. Take the beautiful drive to Charleston or spend a day in Savannah or Beaufort. *Colleton River Plantation is a private community and the amenities are for the use of members and their guests only.

Stayed for four days and wish it could have been four months. The location was peaceful and quiet and the cottage was homey and clean. We hope to return in the future as it was one of our best vacations ever!
