Planning a beach vacation can be a stressful endeavor. Where does one even start when determining the right route for a place to stay?

If you are like many Folly Beach visitors, you are here to enjoy the decadent local dining, the charming local atmosphere, and the scenic shoreline. But what is the best option when it comes to taking in the local area while choosing a comfortable, convenient, and affordable lodging option?

Though a bed and breakfast certainly isn’t the right option for everyone (groups, large families, etc.), a beach bed and breakfast with a queen mattress does offer a charming atmosphere and generous amenities that simply cannot be found at area hotels or beach homes. Ideal for couples or friends, a bed and breakfast is a great option for visitors looking to enjoy a relaxing stay without the hustle and bustle associated with making other arrangements.

See why staying at our Folly Beach bed and breakfast could be the perfect way to settle in for a perfect beach vacation.

A True Home Away From Home

If you prefer a more intimate experience, a bed and breakfast is the perfect choice. Water’s Edge Inn features nine cozy rooms, each of which sports unique decor and amenities to make your stay comfortable. And, though each room is different in location, layout, and view, each room does offer a comfortable queen sized bed and either a private walk-out balcony or screened-in porch. Unique room features include options for an in-room fireplace, whirlpool soaking tub, and more.

Be sure to view all of our bed and breakfast accommodations to find your perfect home away from home.  

Generous Amenities

Bed and breakfast accommodations are well-known for offering thoughtful perks and surprises that simply aren’t available at other lodging options. For example, at Water’s Edge Inn, we offer a complimentary golf cart shuttle to and from our bed and breakfast. Though we are just a short walking distance to the sand, we are happy to provide this service to our guests. Additionally, each of our accommodations includes access to a private walk-out balcony or screened-in porch. No cramped balconies here – our rooms sport balconies with enough room for an early morning cup of coffee or a leisurely lunch, not to mention the gorgeous view of the lush Folly Beach foliage. And, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention some of our generous in-room amenities, like fresh ground coffee and a coffee maker, a mini-fridge for snacks, queen sized beds, and more. And, at the end of the day, guests are welcome to kick back and relax in our outdoor jacuzzi tub, which is open 24-hours a day. Each of these amenities is included in your stay at Water’s Edge free of charge.

If you are looking to enhance your beach experience, we also offer a few ways to make the most of your stay. Additional amenities that are available for a small fee include beach chair and umbrella rentals, bike rentals, flowers and chocolates for special occasions, and off-site spa packages. Please call us at (843) 588-9800 for more information on any of the mentioned services.
