To emphatically say that the “fall” season is the most perfect time to visit the low country may be a bit strong but, in my personal opinion, this time of year cannot be more perfect. The temperatures are cooler, the local oyster roasts have started and the sunsets are truly spectacular. The May River is still warm from the summer sun which allows guests to rent a paddleboard and paddle over to the local sand bar during low tide. Most of the time, our local Bottlenose Dolphins are drawn to the sound of the paddleboarders and boaters and swim very close to investigate. What a treat!
Old Town Bluffton is also in full swing with the annual Bluffton Art and Seafood Festival. This week-long event is a myriad of activities celebrating our local seafood, rich southern history and culture. From the Blessing of the Fleet on the banks of the Church of the Cross to our local Oyster Roasts and culminating with the Art Festival down Calhoun Street, this festival embodies the best of the low country.
As the night’s temperatures transition lower, each of the houses has a gas fireplace for guests to gather around and enjoy each other’s company. Three houses (19 Blue Willow, 8 Astbury, and 5 Rockingham) have private fire pits in their backyards which are stocked with wood for your own personal use. Three other houses (9 N. Drayton, 38 Blue Willow, and 368 Mt. Pelia Road) have outdoor fireplaces located on the back screened-in porches for cozy nights outside. Book today and enjoy a memorable fall getaway.
