About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4), High Celings, Tile floors, Bright

Welcome to the Cottage at The Arsenal! Located at 404 Scott Street. This 2 BR/1.5BA was renovated in 2010. This cottage was our weekend home until we purchased a larger home for our family that is also Downtown. Walking distance to everything, you can park your car and never need it again until you leave downtown Beaufort. 40 steps from Beaufort Visitor Center (the Historic Arsenal). Very quiet. Bright and Clean. Great area.

Since you do not know the area or location, we have added pictures on all sides and behind the house so that you can see how great the surroundings are, no surprises!

1 block away from great restaurants, 1 block from Beaufort Day Spa,

2 blocks from Bay Street and the beautiful Waterfront Park, and 2 blocks from the Historic Old Point neighborhood with beautiful AnteBellum Mansions. The cottage is beautifully furnished with 2 Queen beds and a living room with a big Harvest table and comfortable leather couch. One bathroom has a shower (no tub). The other bathroom is an extra large half bath. The kitchenette includes a Microwave, Keurig coffee machine with starter supplies and small Refrigerator and granite countertop. This is not a cooking kitchen. The entire cottage is beautifully tiled throughout with Central Air and Heat. Private bricked courtyard off Master Bedroom. The master bed is made of antique pine , and has an antique drop leave side table.

The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, with a tall dresser and built in reading lamps on the wall.

The house is a 1950's RENOVATED BLOCK cottage, drywall over block, high ceilings, all new: electrical, plumbing and windows.

Great area. Location Location Location.

The surrounding homes are mostly owner occupied, not short term rental.

You can park right in front of the cottage.

We are very careful about pest control and cleanliness, and have contracted with a national pest control company.

Across the street is a small Historic synagogue and next to that is the Methodist Church. The cottage is on a one way street, which is extremely quiet and safe.

Parking can be on street, or in the grass lot right before the cottage.

The house has 9 foot ceilings and the master has a vaulted ceiling.

About Charlie Calvert

My wife and I are native South Carolinians. We live in Beaufort about a mile from the Cottage.We are available if you need anything as we are owner/managers. Beaufort is becoming a retirement destination and we are thrilled that many of our guests want to move here!

Charlie Calvert purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Charlie Calvert chose Historic District

This is our personal guest cottage used by family and friends for overflow from our home. Many family and friends inquired about having friends stay there after enjoying Downtown Beaufort so much, so we decided to make it available.

There are VERY few properties as close to the waterfront as this property.

It is on a one way street, very quiet, upscale furnishings, residential feel, in an urban setting. The cottage is like a hotel suite, small kitchen area for coffee, microwave, bar fridge and sink. There is no washer and dryer, this is like a hotel suite.

What makes this cottage unique

Fully refundable deposit for any Parris Island Marine Family that needs to cancel.

Awesome, downtown location. This cottage is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and historical attractions. You can see the Historic Arsenal, now the Beaufort Visitors Center, from the front door! Convenient to Paris Island for graduations.

Worked perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our son's Marine Corp graduation. The cottage was perfect for us. Clean and quaint. Lost parking during the day to locals but was always able to get it back at night. Patio is small but private. Great location for Parris Island ( 20 min ) or Beaufort visit. Would recommend for it's location. Thanks Charlie.

Quaint home base very close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Charlie was extremely communicative via app, text or phone call. Our experience was seamless: from arranging Day 1 access, to Charlie leaving out the iron & ironing board to touch up my tux prior to Best Man duties for my best friend's wedding, to always being available if my wife & I needed anything during our stay, you'll be happy and satisfied with your stay. Thank you, Charlie! Looking forward to getting back to Beaufort ASAP. You were instrumental in having a memorable and care-free stay.

Spacious cottage in the historic district

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to park our car once and explore Beaufort on foot and this cottage fit the bill perfectly! Centrally located a few steps from the visitors center & harbor, it is spacious and clean. Parking is a breeze too and free, either in front of the cottage or close by in a private lot.

Our host, Charlie, could not have been more accommodating. We had a few questions about dishes and the Internet and he responded by phone & text immediately.

The cottage has 2 private bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths which would be ideal for a family or two couples. The living-room has comfortable furniture for relaxing after a long day of walking around Beaufort. There isn't a dining room (though the TV is on a table that, with the chairs provided, can be arranged for dining) as this cottage does not have a cooking kitchen. We found the dishes & glassware provided, small fridge, microwave and coffee pot more than adequate for our needs. There are both traditional drip and Keurig coffee pots.

I highly reccomend this cottage for your next trip to Beaufort. You will find both a comfortable home and can't-be-beat proximity to all the historic sites, shops and restaurants that downtown Beaufort has to offer.

This cottage is perfectly situated to get out and enjoy the day in beautiful Downtown Beaufort and the Waterfront Park. Have breakfast at the Palm and Moon Bagel or Blackstone Cafe, both on the same one way street as the cottage.

At night, walk down Scott Street to Bay Street and have your choice of waterfront dining. ( Plums, Saltus, Panini's ) .

After dinner, sit on the water front swings and relax on the Bayfront. Then walk back to the cottage- no parking necessary.

Shop on walkable Bay Street- Jewelry, Gifts, Clothing, Outfitters- to name a few.

You may also walk one block over ( East) and cross Carteret Street to take a walkable tour of the Old Point- home to AnteBellum homes, and the setting for movies such as Forest Gump, The Great Santini, The Big Chill and other movies. Beaufort Day Spa is just one block away @ 304 Scott Street. The Historic Arsenal that houses the Visitor Center can be seen from the front door, and is open every day. Please stop in and ask the staff for recommendations about Beaufort!
