  • Introduction

    Welcome to Crooked Tree Cottage, located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina!

    You'll find our home to be quiet, comfortable and relaxing, with a homey "Shabby Chic" feel.

    The house was built in the 1940's with local rumors having it being built by clowns who used to Winter in the area at that time. After completing our recent renovations, we can attest to some very "funny" construction techniques. You'll still find some sloping floors and crooked doors. 

    We are located about 1/2 mile from the beach in a very quiet area of the Pawleys Island community. You'll find a variety of residences, from small summer rentals to exquisite water front homes. All types of dining and shopping can be found locally, and we can provide more information upon arrival. There are numerous sporting adventures from swimming, surfing, kayaking, and of course, golf. Then there's our favorite: just relaxing in a pair of beach chairs and enjoying the white sand and the Summer sun.
