FABULOUS 1820 CARRIAGE HOUSE WITH GARDENS IN HISTORIC DISTRICT

Charleston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

When coming to Charleston, South Carolina, why stay in a bed and breakfast, historic inn, or hotel when you can rent your own historic vacation rental home for the same price? This elegant and superbly refurbished historic guest home in an exclusive neighborhood of historic downtown Charleston is available by the night, week, or month. Like a Charleston inn or historic bed and breakfast but more private, the 200 year old two bedroom guest home is on an acre in a quiet, but centrally located residential street in the historic district of downtown Charleston, South Carolina. The Charlotte Street Cottage makes for the perfect vacation rental accommodations for your visit to South Carolina.

Secluded and romantic, Charlotte Street Cottage, is the original kitchen house built in 1820. The Cottage is a beautifully restored, two bedroom guesthouse offering the perfect combination of privacy, quiet luxury, and easy access to our beautiful historic city. Rise with the sun and go for a jog along the battery or relax on your sunny patio with a hot cup of coffee and fresh fruit and enjoy the flowers in the gardens. Hop on your bike and be instantly surrounded by the history and charm of the antebellum neighborhood.

Charlotte Street home is a historic home built in 1820 and known as the Wegman-Holmes house. It is set back from the street behind a brick and ironwork fence on an acre of private gardens. Charlotte Street Cottage is rented as one unit and can accommodate up to four people. The property is beautifully landscaped with natural areas, stone patios, young fruit trees, flower beds, 200 year old oaks, and a large lawn. There is secure complimentary parking behind an electric gate. The house is in an ideal location on a beautiful wide street lined with 150 year old oak trees in the heart of the historic district.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with a new top of the line queen bed, the other with new twin beds. There is a full bath, generous closet space, and a washer and dryer. Both bedrooms look out over the gardens. Downstairs features include a kitchen with the original fireplace, breakfast nook, living room, and half bath. The kitchen is fully-equipped with stove and oven, full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, and all the cookware and utensils you could want. The dining/living area is stylish yet comfortably furnished. There is cable television, telephone service, and two zone central heat and air for year round comfort. Fax service is available. Next to the cottage, out the kitchen entrance, is your own private garden and patio, fringed by flowerbeds and with comfortable patio furniture.

From your home on Charlotte Street you can easily walk or ride the trolley to all that Charleston's historic district has to offer. This includes the visitor's center, the old market, the new library and aquarium, the Aiken-Rhett house, the harbor and all Charleston museums. Within a few blocks there are many excellent restaurants, shops, galleries, and of course, fine historic homes of which many are open to the public for the numerous house and garden tours.

Within a five to 15 minute drive are hiking, kayaking, white sandy ocean beaches, horseback riding, and yacht harbors. The area is renowned for its many fine golf courses. In the event of any special health needs, there are three modern medical centers within several blocks. Downtown Charleston is 15 minutes from Charleston International Airport. A private taxi to our door costs approximately $25, or airport shuttles will also give door-to-door service for $13 per person. We are a five hour drive from Atlanta, two hours from Savannah, three and a half from Charlotte, and one hour from Beaufort, South Carolina.

We really enjoyed our week at Charlotte Street Cottage! All of Lisa and Geoff's suggestions were wonderful for exploring Historic Charleston and loved the local restaurants. It was so nice coming back to the beautiful well equipped cottage and could enjoy the lush gardens after our days out. We especially enjoyed visiting historic Mt Pleasant, Sullivan's Island, and Boone Hall Plantation.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a good week of relaxing in the cottage and not in the cold, cold North! We try to make Charlotte Street Cottage a haven to which you can return after a day of exploring and feel at home so we are so pleased with your kind words. Hope you can return another time!

Perfect cottage for Historic Charleston

Charlotte Street Cottage is the perfect location for a visit to historic Charleston. It is easy to find when you arrive and walking distance from the town center. The fact it has off street parking within the lovely walled garden is a nice bonus.

The cottage is great - clean, well maintained and well equipped. The owners made us feel very welcome when we arrived. Little touches like having so many guide books to Charleston made our stay even better.

We did not want to leave and hope to go back again some day!

A Wonderful Week in Charleston

One week at the Charlotte Street Cottage and we were officially puddles of relaxation! We chose the cottage for its close proximity to all the things we wanted to see in Charleston, but the charm of the home, the lovely gardens and the owners' hospitality made it hard to leave for more than a few hours at a time! The hosts' restaurant recommendations were spot on – I don’t remember when we’ve eaten so well! – and their suggestions for navigating the tourist spots were so helpful. My husband and I can't wait to visit again!
