It’s shabby chic meets high tech and it’s all in the details! Elegant, light and airy and just darn adorable best describes The Urban Cottage. Be the first guests to experience the luxury!

The Urban Cottage at The Bryant House is a newly restored 950 square foot Historic cottage just blocks away from the inter coastal waterway. It was built in 1939 for Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Bryant. As owners of McKown's Market, the Bryants worked downtown and raised their family in this quaint cottage. Lovingly restored, the sensitive and sustainable renovation has maintained a cottage feel with all the modern conveniences in a fantastic downtown location.

The majestic hand carved Mahogany 4 Post king-sized bed along with high quality bedding and down comforters creates a romantic, elegant Master Bedroom that is spacious and inviting. The Living Room has views of 50 year old azalea bushes planted by Mrs. Bryant in the front garden. A leather sectional couch provides a comfortable resting area for guests. The open floor plan allows viewing of the 40” LED Smart TV from the Kitchen, Living and Dining Rooms.
