Travel + Leisure just named Charleston the No. 1 city in the U.S. and Canada.
History buffs will enjoy touring Fort Moultrie, now part of the National Park Service. Originally built of Palmetto logs that British cannonballs were unable to penetrate (botanically a grass, not a tree), the fort played an important role in bombarding Fort Sumpter to begin the American Civil War. Fort Moultrie continued as a part of the U.S. defense system to protect Charleston right through WWII.
This property is in a family trust for several adult siblings who grew up on this very property. There is a small cottage also on the 1 acre lot occupied by one of the adult siblings.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Convenient to beach and lots of good restaurants and bars. Fantastic place for dogs. Make sure you get registered with the town so you can let the dogs play on the beach (off leash from 5 am to noon during off season). It's worth it if you're going to be there for a month. The owner on site was extremely friendly and had lots of stories to tell about the history of Sullivan's Island (for example, there used to be a trolley hence the streets being called stations). I can't wait to get back.

We enjoyed our stay at The Fetter's Beach House on Sullivan's Island. Everything you need is supplied. The beach is just a short walk or quick bike ride from the house. The island is laid back and friendly. We rode our bikes to historical Ft. Moultrie for a tour and Charleston is just a short drive away. One of the owner's lives on the back of the property and was most helpful with any questions we had. We especially loved the porches at this house, always a nice breeze and so relaxing for your first cup of coffee in the mornings. We will definately stay here again on our next trip to Charleston.

I had to be in town for business for a month this year and needed a place to stay. The house was just fixed up inside and looked great. The screened in porch was great as extended living space and made for a really nice way to spend the evenings. We had another family come and stay with us and they enjoyed it as well, there was more than enough space for both families. The pet run with entrance from upstairs was great for our dog and made the trip much easier. I would highly recommend this house! (**Special note: These guests returned the following year for another great stay!)
