The Ultimate Relaxation

We are pleased to announce we now include a 1-hour couples massage for all of our elopement packages!!
Not only will you be married to the one you love, with cake and champagne, and amazing photos to remember your special day, but now you also get that optimal relaxation before or after your big ‘I Do’. I can’t think of anything sweeter! We love working with local Folly Beach massage therapists like Sam and his team at Malama Massage. They are nestled in between Wich Doctor and Island Grill and Bar on Hudson Ave., right down the road from Water’s Edge Inn. Even if you have no plans to elope, you’re on vacation…you deserve a treat! Let us help you set up that massage that will truly let you kick back and relax while all your stress and tension literally dissolve away. Aloha Y’all!

Lowcountry Cajun Festival Coming Soon!

The weather has noticeably warmed up here. You can see evidence of that each time you venture outside to see people on their bikes and skateboards cruising the streets of Folly. The beaches are fuller and Center Street restaurants are always lively. One great option for soaking in this great weather is to visit the Lowcountry Cajun Festival coming April 3rd to the James Island County Park. Nothing feels more like the arrival of spring and summer then kids and grown ups alike playing in the park. The festival will have Zydeco music playing, delicious Cajun and Creole dishes, inflatable games, and more. For more information check out the Charleston County Park and Recreation website. This is also a great resource for other upcoming events that get you outside enjoying the perfect Charleston spring weather!

Love Birds Unite

February in Folly Beach brings the FollyGras parade and celebration as well as romantic Valentine’s weekend getaways. Water’s Edge Inn and Regatta Inn played host to many couples enjoying romantic time together and it seems a new romance has developed within our own ranks…..

 

Meet Bubba. Bubba stays perched right outside our front door at Water’s Edge Inn and has taken a liking to the lovely Stella (and who could blame him). He wishes to sweep her off her feet and so he’s invited her to join him for a drink and conversation. While Stella prepares for this exciting occasion upstairs in the Hemingway room, Bubba patiently waits for his date to join him on the front porch.

 

 

 

Meanwhile upstairs, Stella simply can’t decide what jewelry she wants to wear or make up to bring out her eyes! This outing is the first time the two have been able to share time alone and she wants to really ‘woo’ him.

 

 

 

Bubba has selected a lovely Prosecco to set the tone for a celebratory and intimate afternoon between the two and Stella is already giddy or, should we say, ‘bubbly’ from all the attention she is getting from both Bubba and the camera!

Warm Winter Holidays in the South!

Much of the East Coast has been experiencing warmer than average temperatures for the winter and Charleston and Folly Beach are no exception. I’ve spent most days this week enjoying a book on the beach in shorts and a tank top while others have even been clad in bikinis seeking out that winter tanned glow. Upon researching, it seems that the Polar Vortex many encountered a couple winters ago has instead of moving south towards the U.S., remained tightly bound in the Arctic. Basically, I think what we can all take from this lesson is plan your next vacation with us in Folly Beach this weather to take advantage of warm days and sunshine!! Happy Holidays Y’all!

Spotlight: Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theater

Whether or not you’ve ever been to a murder mystery dinner before this is definitely something everyone should check out while you’re visiting the area! I had never been to one before but I’m definitely glad I made this a priority. At the Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theater the stage and the actors are you. Of course there’s the pro actors there to help facilitate things along, setting the stage for the impending murder, and of course get a never ending stream of laughter from the audience, but otherwise it’s up to audience participation to keep the showing going. The atmosphere is so light-hearted and encouraging that even the shy-est of attendees can volunteer for a role and find themselves glad they stepped up (myself being one of them).

I attended a showing of the Garden, Gun, and Gin Club, a story about The Church Street Daughters of Late Unpleasantries whom are not all too happy when the newest President of the club has opened the society to both men and Yankees. There are several other shows as well to choose from, and I fully intend to return again and experience them all! They also offer drinks such as beer, wine, coffee, and […]
