Leave the Mainland Behind
One of the many charms of Haig Point, located on the northern tip of Daufuskie Island, is that it is accessible only by boat. Arrive from Hilton Head Island, SC by a scenic ferry ride from the private Haig Point embarkation center or a 24-hour water-taxi service from Harbour Town. The personal touchpoints of concierge services, like grocery and package delivery from the mainland, make island living second to none.
The natural beauty of Daufuskie Island shines through each and every property in Haig Point. Pristine beaches showcase the glistening water of the Atlantic Ocean with a backdrop of South Carolina at its finest.

Accommodations and Events
The Strachan Mansion
The Strachan Mansion at Haig Point was built in 1910 on St. Simons Island as a summer retreat. In 1986, the new developers of the community moved the mansion to Haig Point with two barges over three days in some times treacherous waters. The historic building was restored to its magnificence as you see today.
Featuring four luxurious suites, each with a tie to Haig Point’s history and beautifully themed with antique furnishings, the Mansion presents comfortably elegant accommodations for guests of residents and members. Guests can unwind from their busy day with a refreshing beverage at the bar, playing billiards with friends or simply relaxing in one of the cozy gathering places.
The General Store is located in the Mansion, stocked with necessities to tide you over between trips to the mainland. In the mornings, the Mansion offers complimentary coffee, muffins and daily newspapers. The Member hub also houses an on-site post office, and it’s a Wi-Fi hot spot for those wanting a peaceful place to catch up on work while watching dolphins frolic in the surf.
The 1873 Lighthouse
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.
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. Be sure to tour the historic lighthouse on your visit to Haig Point!
