Fodor's Expert Review The Cottages at James Island County Park

871 Riverland Dr., James Island, South Carolina, 29412, USA Fodor's Choice

Ten minutes from downtown but worlds away, these 10 three-bedroom cottages include full kitchens, cable TV, and most of the amenities you'd expect at a hotel—but guests spend most of their time on the screened-in porches, soaking up the view across the marsh and the Stono River. The serene park setting includes easy access to miles of walking trails, a fishing dock, a disc golf course, and a climbing wall. There's also a campground with RV and tent sites. Be sure to book far in advance.

PROS

  • quiet retreat close to town
  • gorgeous views from the porch

CONS

  • lighting and bathroom fixtures are basic
  • mosquitoes are prevalent outside during summer
  • noise can transfer between porches when groups are gathered
