Cabin Getaway at Edisto Beach State Park

By:Marie McAden


Not up for roughing it in a rustic cabin? Edisto Be​ach State Park can set you up in some pretty sweet digs with all the charms of a woodsy retreat — and the comforts of home.

Still not convinced? How about a million dollar view to go with your sylvan accommodations.

The park’s seven clapboard cabins have been renovated from top to bottom — literally. I’m talking ceilings, walls, windows, floors, kitchens and bathrooms. The all-wood interior offers the cozy feel of a cabin in the woods with the kinds of modern amenities you’d expect in a hotel, including heating and air conditioning, microwave, coffee maker, satellite TV and even wireless internet service.

Each cabin has its own screened-in porch overlooking the s​alt marsh and Scott Creek. The view alone is worth the cost of the cabin.

Outside you’ll find a picnic table, fire ring and grill where you can enjoy lunch or an evening under the stars.

When my husband and I visited the park last month, we stayed in a one-bedroom cabin with an additional queen-size Murphy bed in the living room. The three-bedroom cabins accommodate six.

This time of year, the cabins are a bargain. In December and February you can book one of the five one-bedroom units for $104 per night. In January, they’re just $83. During the more popular months from March through November, they’re still an affordable $148. The two six-person cabins run from $110 to $188 per night.

Accommodations include bath and bed linens and all the cooking and eating accoutrements you’ll need to make yourself right at home. Cabin guests also have access to a dock for fishing and crabbing.

Be aware: you’ll need to leave Fido at home. Pets are not allowed in the cabins or the cabin grounds.
