Since then, Water’s Edge Inn has become a premier Folly Beach hotel, offering a comfortable yet elegant beach experience. Created around the concept of offering premier customer service full of unexpected surprises and personal touches, a stay at Water’s Edge Inn is sure to be memorable.

Enchanting little Inn!!!
Why stay in yet another cookie-cutter hotel when the Water’s Edge Inn is available? It’s a charming little venue hidden away amongst the flora and fauna of Folly. (Even friends who are natives didn’t know it was there.) We fell in love with it.
Loved it again!
I truly appreciate the warm and inviting feeling that I had during my stay. From checking in, to checking out, one feels that you are their only customer. The two night stay is exactly what my wife and needed.
Feel Like a Local!
Stayed in a villa with family and everyone had a blast. The four year old was entertained, the teenage girls were kept busy, and dad was still able to relax!!! The staff made the experience that much more delightful by being laid back and attentive at all times.
