Cainhoy is a small, historic community located along the shores of the Wando River. Thanks to its setting on the river, the Berkeley County community’s documented history dates to the 1750s. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places with nearly a dozen well-preserved historic buildings. Today, the location of the community — just minutes from Mt. Pleasant and Daniel Island and only half an hour from downtown Charleston — and its natural beauty make it a desirable place to live. It addition to access to several marinas, residents of the area enjoy living at the edge of the Francis Marion National Forest. Cainhoy is a rural enclave perfect for commuters or retirees interested in escaping the urban or suburban hustle but still seeking nearby amenities.
