Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in The Bluff - Carriage House on Craven

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

You are viewing the separate upstairs unit, Wren's Nest, in this picturesque carriage house which sits next to our home, Craven House, in the beautiful historic district in downtown Beaufort, one block from the marina, shopping, museums and restaurants. Walk everywhere, even to the post office. Wren’s Nest has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a full bed. In between the two bedrooms, there is a shared full bath. The unit has hardwood floors throughout and a fitted kitchen. Relax on the porch or furnished patio surrounded by 100 year old oak trees draped with Spanish moss, lovely gardens and historic homes. The sound of the church bells of nearby St Helena Church, one of the oldest continual working churches in the country, will take you back into the 18th century.

This carriage house with separate upper and lower units was recently brought back to life after many years of neglect. It truly is the best location in Beaufort, near the Anchorage House, Beaufort Inn and Rhett House, Beaufort’s most popular wedding venues. From here It is an easy drive to Paris Island, the Sands beach in Port Royal and Hunting beach on the ocean.

Linens are included.

About Ellen and Mike Tomy

Mike Tomy is an award winning architect and Ellen painted portraits for 15 years and now paints miniatures. They are both retired and recently renovated the main house and the carriage house that sits near.

Ellen and Mike Tomy purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ellen and Mike Tomy chose Beaufort

The carriage house has wonderful views of historic homes. The trees somewhat 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 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.

What makes this cottage unique

The Carriage House on Craven, central to all that is happening in Beaufort has a separate unit downstairs (property 742825) if one has a large party and all want to stay in one place.

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 fabulous seafood in Beaufort's unique restaurants. If you don't want to eat out, a fully equipped kitchen is ready for you.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful furnishings, very comfortable beds, private, yet within walking distance of the riverfront, the restaurants, and the shops. Loved sitiing on the front porch of our apartment and also visiting with Ellen and Mike and their sweet dogs on their spacious front porch.

Wonderful hosts even during tough times

  • 5 of 5

I was unable to stay at this beautiful rental due to hurricane Matthew. That being said the hosts were responsive and kind when I asked to postpone and eventually cancel my rental of their carriage house. They refunded me in full quickly even though I'm sure they were dealing with cleanup after hurricane. If and when I return to beautiful Beaufort I will undoubtedly be staying here.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be close to downtown and be able to walk to the shops and the Shrimp Festival. The location was just where we needed to be. Designated parking and accommodations that made us feel right at home. Loved the "dog" art throughout the apartment especially the westie piece (since we have 2 westies at home). This apartment even has rocking chairs on the porch to enjoy the views. Thank you and I am certain we will be back!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had to cut our trip much shorter than expected due to an incoming hurricane, but will be back soon! The apartment was absolutely lovely- very clean and well appointed. The decor is appropriate for the area, and very well done without feeling "stuffy". The air conditioner worked very well, something I worry about with older homes, but not here- everything has been renovated and is top-notch. The location is great- a short walk (5 min) to the town center with all the shops and restaurants, and a even shorter (2 min) walk to the marina. Bedding and linens were in ample supply and were of high quality. We weren't there long enough to really use the kitchen- but it seemed to be very well equipped. I highly recommend this property and look forward to coming back to spend a little more time in beautiful historic Beaufort.

It was exactly as the rental listing described.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Carriage House. The location was perfect for exploring downtown restaurants and sites. The beautiful courtyard was a wonderful place to enjoy a coffee, read a book or have a discussion. We would definitely go back . The owners were very helpful is we ever needed anything.
