Relaxed Elegance

Check out the Pelican Inn in the June/July issue of Garden and Gun.

Welcome to the Pelican Inn on Pawleys Island, South Carolina. We're an 8 room beachfront bed and breakfast where it's impossible not to relax. Guests awaken in the morning to the smell of biscuits baking, children spend hours trying to catch fiddler crabs, and our porch hammocks are perfect for napping during an afternoon storm.

Pawleys Island is located 70 miles north of Charleston on the South Carolina coast. Inhabitants and visitors describe the simple charm of Pawleys as "arrogantly shabby," a description that originally referred to the appearance of the cypress-sided cottages. Pawleys is the birthplace of the rope hammock, which was invented by Joshua John Ward in the late 1800s.
