A recent guest had this to say about the property:

"A great little cottage, very nicely appointed. The setting is the kind of gorgeous you only get in the live oaks, gardens, fountains, ferns and bright sunshine. The patio outside the cottage is quite beautiful, something you can't really get from the photos. Julie and her husband were excellent hosts, attending to every need, offering guidance on local food and even helping with beach access. We were privileged to be the first guests in this cottage, and it's highly recommended for all who may follow. Thanks Julie!"

About Julie Osteen

We love living on the coast of South Carolina. We fell in love with Georgetown 8 years ago and decided to make it our permanent home. We enjoy taking long walks and walking to the many restaurants and shops in the historic downtown. Georgetown is a friendly, welcoming place to be, and we are happy to share our newly renovated home and guest house with others.

Julie Osteen purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Julie Osteen chose Georgetown

You can't beat the location,,, 2 blocks from the water and tourist sites rich with history. The cottage offers guests a luxurious retreat on the grounds of a 200 year old property rich in history. Enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace listening to the sounds of the fountain or take a lazy afternoon nap in the hammock. Our place is your place during your stay.

What makes this cottage unique

Georgetown is a beautiful, friendly, walking community, rich in history that offers an abundance of interesting activities. There are boat tours, historic trolley tours and walking tours that offer a glimpse into the south's rich history and truly unique experiences for visitors.

You can enjoy the morning shopping in town, then pop over the bridge for an afternoon on the beach. Cap your day off with drinks overlooking the water followed by a delicious dinner at one of our many local restaurants. "Fresh catch" takes on a whole new meaning in our seafood restaurants.

Southern Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time visiting historic Georgetown, due in large part to the accommodations that allowed us to walk to everything in this quaint town. The cottage is perfect for two people, very comfortable and cozy, much more like a home than a hotel room. The hosts, Julie and Graham, made us feel welcome with their friendliness, breakfast foods, and local area recommendations. Patio is great for hanging out by the fire or lounging in the sun. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

From the time you open the door until you have to say goodbye, this delightful nest calms the soul, is luscious in her details and is the perfect unplug from the day-to-day! Highly recommend this cottage to the most discerning traveler! Did I mention that hand-ironed sheets? All this tucked away in a quiet treelined historic neighborhood just blocks away from great shopping and good meals!

Georgetown should be on everybody's list!

Guesthouse was immaculate with amazing attention to every detail. It was charming in every way! It was such fun to be able to walk to shopping, for drinks or for dinner on Front Street in Georgetown. We can't wait to go back :-)

Our cottage is in the heart of the coastal city of Georgetown, located on Winyah Bay. This puts the best of all water sports at your fingertips. Guests can enjoy boating, waterskiing, fishing, parasailing or just hop aboard one of our 3 local tour boats and take a ride out to the mouth of the ocean. On land, the Front Street shopping is the best offering something for everyone in the family.
