Lighthouse Daufuskie Island, SC 29915 United States

In 1872, construction commenced on the Lighthouse that would guide captains navigating the shifting shoals of Calibogue Sound. The Lighthouse’s 40-foot tower served mariners traveling around the northern tip of Daufuskie between 1873 to the 1930s. After many years passed with no attention to the structure, the Lighthouse was restored in the 1980s after development began at Haig Point.

As the legend goes, a young maiden named Maggie lived in the Lighthouse with her family in the late 19th century. Her father, Patrick Comer, was the first lighthouse keeper, along with his wife, Bridget. The family moved to Daufuskie in 1873 and tended to the structure for the first 18 years. Maggie fell in love with a naval engineer who was tasked with refitting the Lighthouse's lantern room. Notes from his diary revealed that the pair had quickly fallen in love, but something happened unexpectedly and the couple split. He left and never returned to Daufuskie Island, leaving her with a broken heart. Haig Point residents and visitors have claimed they felt the friendly presence of Maggie.

While it serves as a guesthouse with two bedrooms, kitchen, dining room and porch overlooking Calibogue Sound, the Lighthouse is also a sought-after venue for weddings, special events and private parties.

    The lighthouse itself is charming and well-equipped, but there were little details off that you would expect to be better in a rental of this caliber and cost. We climbed the tower of the lighthouse and it was filthy, and the bedding and some bath linens were old and torn. The location in the Haig Point golf community wasn't ideal for us because we don't golf and the restaurants were not to our liking. It also took a good amount of our golf cart battery just to get out of the community so we didn't really feel like we could explore the rest of the island. The management was very friendly most of the time but the rental felt very much an afterthought and their main business was selling residences at the golf community. Because they are more accustomed to dealing with residents than renters I think they assumed we knew many things and acted surprised when we asked questions about how things worked. It would have been nice if there was more clarity about the food/dining situation before we went.

    Second time staying at the HP Lighthouse, a very special property. Mornings spent watching the Dolphins, just in front of the front porch. Will probably make this an annual visit.

    We were looking for a romantic, quiet weekend getaway this January, and our stay in the historic lighthouse exceeded any of our expectations. It was enjoyable initially to leave our car on the mainland and decompress on the ferry ride to Daufuskie Island. Immediately when you see the lighthouse, you are captivated by its charm. The inside was immaculately clean and the decor perfectly captured the historic time period. We spent afternoons in the rocking chairs on the front porch with a glass of wine, watching the dolphin pods frolic in the sound. One morning after brunch we drove our appointed golf cart around the entire island, drinking in the rich history and capturing some beautiful photographs. In addition we had two delicious dinners at the Calibogue Beach Club, enhanced by the highly professional and meticulous service of the host and servers. When Sunday departure time rolled around, I must admit we were really disappointed to leave such a remarkable weekend behind, but we left with many memories and a promise to return to the lighthouse.

    Todd S from Lexington, KY recommends this vacation rental

    A weekend in a Lighthouse what could be better? Nothing. This Lighthouse is located right on a point address from Harbour Town. Fantastic trade winds blowing through open windows make for am amazing experience. Add in a little bit of "haunted" history and mouthwatering food and it is a recipe for a one of kind stay. We loved it.
