  • Introduction

    The Shaw House Bed & Breakfast is an early Colonial American home with six columns on the front porch.

    Nestled on a grassy knoll, among the pine trees, the Inn overlooks miles of marsh lands and pre-Civil War rice fields.

    The Shaw House is located 32 miles south of Myrtle Beach and 55 miles north of Charleston on Highway U.S. 17.

    History of Georgetown

    Europeans first settled in what is now Georgetown County in 1526 when a band of hearty Spaniards established an ill-fated settlement near Winyah Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It was not until amost two centuries later that colonists from Northern Europe began arriving and established settlements that flourished. Thus Georgetown County today traces its roots from these early Englishmen, Scots, French Huguenots, Germans and other immigrants. Many of their creations in homes, places of culture and worship still exist, and can be seen today.

    "This is the first time we have stayed with the Shaw's. The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast was great. To sum it up as the first time I've stayed at a B&B I could not have picked a better place. Marry & Joe nice and considerate of all our needs." -Bob Castle Hayne, NC
