  • Great adventurous getaway


    We had a great time on this getaway. This house had much more room than we anticipated. Beautiful views , salt water fishing and fresh water fishing. This was the perfect location. Felt kinda like glamping with the water holding tank. The house had so many things already stocked If we had forgotten something I’m sure it would’ve been there. We will definitely go stay here again soon.

  • Riverside Getaway


    All the men in the family took a long weekend getaway and this property did not disappoint. It started with me and my sons planning to do a little duck hunting and both my brothers, nephews and my dad ended up joining us. We had a great weekend. The property had plenty of room for us, with everything we needed right there. The owner was really accessible and extremely helpful. Highly recommend this for a getaway.

  • Paridise on the river


    This is a familys get away retreat that people dream about. Some other cabins close by but mostly vacant. We had the island to ourselves. Its like having your own private Congaree Nat Park. Wild life galore, very little river traffic , none on week days. The home ,is a home. The challenges that you face to have all the modern comforts , on an island, on the river, with no vehicle access, have been addressed and conquered. Not an easy task. Vacation here while you can!

  • Relaxing and beautiful


    My family and I had a nice relaxing get away. We saw dolphins and crocodiles. It rained ever day so not much fishing but I spent a lot of time with the girls playing board games and cards. The owners Dave and Lisa are available and easy to talk with. They sent a video of how to get to the cabin from the dock. They even left me some tide to wash my clothes out if needed. Will come back for sure.

  • Vacay on a River


    Wonderful 7 days spent relaxing, exploring, fishing, cooking, laughing and unplugging from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Our family spent 7 great days at the Clayton Cabin…. We brought our boat and enjoyed exploring the River as well as the Georgetown Harbor one day for lunch! We had some rainy days but we still enjoyed ourselves and even caught huge fish from the dock those days. Our sons would fish from sun up to sun down and never complained of boredom. I would definitely recommend bringing boots for exploring around the property since it's kind of swampy. We were greeted the first day by an alligator(who stayed in the water) and stayed close by the first 3 or 4 days… only chasing the corks in the water and basically just swimming around all the other time. So definitely no swimming in the River for us but that was expected. We had one little issue early on and the host was super helpful and responded quickly to help us remedy the problem! Kitchen is very well stocked and the grill outside is an added bonusMosquitos were not as bad as one would think for a River front house in the dead of summer , we used bug spray and lit citronella and we enjoyed many evenings on the front porch rocking in the really comfy wooden rockers! Drink Coffee every morning and watch the sun rise right from the kitchen table! We watched Dolphins playing up and down the River!!! Really cool get away for a “off the grid” kind of retreat! I would recommend bringing a boat for sure if your planning to stay for multiple days! We were a little iffy about leaving our vehicles parked in an unattended lot for 7 days but not one issue at all! We had a really great vacay and we will definitely be back!
