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.

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.

Charmingly elegant

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vrbo's over the years and this one ranks at the top. It is charmingly elegant with all of the essentials plus the extra nice touches. It is very quiet & in a quiet area to be so close to Bay St. Everything in the downtown area is within a short walking distance....we never moved our car until time to leave....and we didn't want to do that:). Ellen is very accommodating and has a special sense of how to make a traveler comfortable away from home. We highly, highly, highly recommend this carriage house!

The apartment was very nice and convenient to downtown Beaufort.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Beaufort and the surrounding sea islands exploring our roots. A suggestion to the owners - put blinds on windows. It was difficult to sleep with light pouring in. Also need a more comfortable couch.

Perfect Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and all the nice touches provided. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom surprisingly large. One suggestion would be a more comfortable sofa in the main room.

The carriage house was very clean, quaint, comfortable, and convenient to town.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Ellen and Mike were welcoming and we felt at home right away. The carriage house was very spacious for two of us. We enjoyed having a glass of wine on the porch and walking to town which is a very short walk away. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Beaufort!

The perfect vacation

You will not be disappointed in your stay at the beautiful carriage house that Ellen and Mike own. They are special hosts and you could not ask for a more lovely appointed apartment. Add to that the convenient location to historic downtown Beaufort and you have the perfect vacation.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for charming accommodation in Beaufort SC you needn't look any further. This is an ideal spot in a very convenient location. Extremely well appointed 2 bedroom apartment with an eat-in kitchen and fully stocked cupboards for all your cooking needs.

This carriage house has been loving restored and is extremely bright & cheerful. We spent 2 weeks here relaxing, playing golf, exploring Beaufort & its history and eating at the lovely local restaurants. It is an easy drive to both Savannah and Charleston for more history of the South.

Mike & Ellen are delightful hosts and willing to help you with any inquires. I'm sorry we missed you the day we left, we rang the doorbell but because we had a long drive to Washington DC needed to get on the road. Many thanks to you both, Bob & Chris.
