What Past Guests Are Saying
Fabulous Retreat, Great Location
Our second visit to this Cottage was even better than the first. It felt like coming "home" - that is, to a luxurious retreat! The Cottage is comfortable and impeccably maintained, within walking distance to all things Charleston. It was so nice to come home from a day of touring and tasting to this lovely respite. A great area for walking as you will see all the fabulous historic details of the homes in this quiet residential area just two blocks from the Battery waterfront. Book now as the more people who know about it, the harder it will be to get a reservation. Our hostess recommended the highlight of our visit, the Charleston Footprints walking tour with Michael Trouche. Thanks Chriss from us and the miniature schnauzers. We will be back for another stay.

Charming Luxury South of Broad
This is a fabulous place to stay. My wife and I had a wonderful four days in this charming, restored boat house. It was tucked away on one of the larger properties south of Broad and we had outstanding views from the front porch of the cottage. We were within walking distance of downtown, the Battery, and most of the attractions in Charleston. Chris, the owner, was gracious and helpful. I highly recommend this for a taste of southern hospitality.

Awesome Private Cottage with Great Location
We stayed for four nights with our two miniature schnauzers and could not have been happier. The Cottage is within walking distance to the Battery waterfront but is nestled into a large lot back off the street. There is off street parking in front and gardens lead up to the front door. It is extremely private and the setting is soothing. Once inside, the decor is lovely. It is clean and very comfortable but accented with beautiful antiques. The kitchen is well appointed although we ate out for most meals (we did enjoy having coffee each morning). The bathrooms are modern with a historic touch. The Cottage is very spacious and larger than it appears on the photos. Our hostess Chriss generously offered us a tour of her lovely historic home and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We took our dogs on long walks and enjoyed exploring on foot as we saw so many details that are missed while driving. We did drive to dinner each night unlike some of the other reviewers. Chriss recommended we book ahead at a restaurant called Husk and we were glad we did - it was the best meal we had on our trip! We highly recommend this for a relaxing stay in a lovely setting.

Lovely cottage with all the charm of Charleston only a few block
My husband and I, along with our pooch, stayed at The Cottage for 10 days during the Spoleto Festival. The Cottage was very comfortable, quiet, and well furnished. Chriss helped us with directions to the local grocery store (all those one way streets in Charleston can be a bit confusing when you haven't been there in 20-some years) and responded immediately when the wi-fi went out after a brief flicker in power from a thunderstorm. Since we were traveling with our dog, the Cottage was a perfect location for scenic walks to White Point Gardens (where dogs are allowed off leash) in the Battery overlooking Charleston Harbor. We walked everywhere from the Cottage to all the Festival venues: Gaillard auditorium, Dock Street Theatre, Sottile Theatre, Emmett Robinson Theatre at College of Charleston, and the College of Charleston Cistern Yard. We enjoyed the Festival--and our stay at the Cottage--so much that we are returning in 2013 and are looking forward to staying at the Cottage once again!

Quiet retreat in a fabulous "South of Broad" location
I happened to find this place when I was searching Vrbo.com for a vacation rental with a king bed (not a common feature, I found). Staying here, we got a comfortable place to sleep, and so much more.
This is a spacious cottage on the grounds of a beautifully and lovingly preserved antebellum mansion (c. 1856) in the heart of the quiet, historic residential-only neighborhood south of Broad. It is well-furnished with an eclectic mix of modern and antique, up-to-date appliances and bathrooms, and immaculate. The "modern" furnishings include a comfortable king bed, washer-dryer, two comfortable couches in separate areas, which meant that a couple staying here could each stretch out on a couch and read on an afternoon that turned stormy (this is something you probably couldn't do in a hotel room).
From this location you can walk--if you're a walker--to most restaurants, to the Battery, and to most of the mansions that are open for tours. The light and shadows in this neighborhood are stunning at all hours of the day and night, constantly changing and endlessly fascinating (at least to me). The property owner graciously offered us a private tour of the "big" house, her home, which we enjoyed immensely.
I would return here in a heartbeat. It was a perfect location for our week exploring Charleston and the vicinity. Thank you, Chriss.
