Approximately 1100 acres in size, Belfair is located on the mainland in Bluffton, SC five miles from Hilton Head Island, SC on Highway 278. Its waterfront side faces the marshes of the Colleton River. Belfair is 25 miles north of Savannah, GA, 32 miles south of Beaufort, SC, and 110 miles south of Charleston, SC.
Along with the magnificent half-mile oak-lined drive, Belfair is home to both prehistoric and historic sites, dramatic marsh and river views, secluded wetlands and Hidden lake, a 42 acre freshwater chain of lakes. The upper portion of Hidden Lake contains what has been classified by the US Fish and Wildlife Service as one of the more significant colonial wading bird rookeries in South Carolina. The rookery has been preserved as a conservancy, demonstrating the developer’s commitment to preserving the ecological integrity of the land.
