About Us

A history of excellence—
And thoughtful development

From the beginning, John Reed’s goal has been to create one-of-a-kind coastal living experiences in harmony with the natural beauty of the Lowcountry. The Reed Group has played a significant role in Beaufort County since the early 1970s. They have been instrumental in the discovery and transformation of Hilton Head into a world-renowned resort destination. Today, The Reed Group is touted as one of the region’s most innovative, trusted, and creative developers, with an unparalleled commitment to excellence, conservation, and owner satisfaction. These core values are paramount to all facets of The Reed Group’s endeavors.

Bluffton's premier lake living experience

Named “America’s Best” Community & Club, Hampton Lake offers a casual, relaxed way of life centered around a 227-acre freshwater lake, and premier resort-like amenities for the whole family to enjoy. Ideally located within 25 minutes of Hilton Head Island, and Savannah, GA, and only 45 minutes from Beaufort, South Carolina, Hampton Lake offers more real estate options—at a broader range of price points—than anyone else in the region.

“We came down to visit on their Ownership Experience and were immediately blown away by the quality of the amenities offered. We found everything we were looking for in a community and a home for this stage of our life.”

Brian & Laura M., Hampton Lake residents since 2017


Bold, inventive, visionary, and at one with nature. That has been the vision at Hampton Lake from day one.

As you explore your new home, notice how your environment is protected.
