Charming Clean Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I were trying to plan a getaway & I remembered a little cottage I had seen when trying to plan a sister trip last year. I knew immediately that's where I wanted to go. We were not surprised by the outside of the cottage because it was just as charming as the photos. The inside did not disappoint either. It was so clean & comfortable & well equipped. The first thing I told my my husband was "I could live here". Rental was a breeze & Matt was always quick to respond & so professional. My only complaint was we didn't stay long enough.

As Good As It Gets!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple just spent 5 wonderful days in this beautiful Charleston cottage, it's immaculate, elegantly decorated, great location and very peaceful and homey! Matt was gracious, helpful and the best host ever. The ease of the booking, instructions, Charleston "to do's" were great. King beds were very comfortable and the set-up of the attached full baths perfect. I would highly recommend this lovely cottage in a heart beat to anyone! The Hominy Grill next door was fantastic and ate there four times in the five days. I didn't want to leave and will be back and stay longer!!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for a much-needed week of R&R. It was perfect! The cottage was just as pictured, but even better. As soon as we walked in I said I never wanted to leave. I've seen other reviews that said it's quite a distance to walk to City Market and East Bay/Meeting/King Street restaurants. Bring a pair of comfy sneakers and you'll be fine. But if you're not up for it, there is plenty of garage parking in that area. I recommend this place, you'll love it. Thank you, Matt, we really enjoyed our week.

Parking is tight, so if you are making a car rental decision, go with something no bigger than a mid-size.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the week at Mark's lovely cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house was clean and very stylish. Loved the king size beds with the firm mattresses. My nephew said the pull out sofa bed also comfy. The kitchen was fantastic. We cooked a couple of dinner meals and breakfast meals when we didn't want to go out. My husband made mention several times how good the drinking water was. It was also nice having a washer and dryer available because we were able to travel with less luggage. The house was convenient to the free trolley which was good because it is quite a distance to walk if going to go to City Market or The Battery. Too far to walk if anyone has physical activity issues. As to places to see, White Point Garden is a must as well as a stroll on The Battery. There is beauty every way you turn! For good food and drinks, please go to Pearlz Oyster Bar on East Bay St. Some of the best food on entire trip eaten there. Hominy Grill was good as was Poogan's Porch. For fantastic steamed oysters, get a tray at Bowens Island restaurant. If hesitating at all about making a trip to Charleston, stop and make a reservation now for this cottage. You won't regret it! Thanks, Mark, for having such a charming home for rent. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Another wonderful stay in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th stay at The Ruthlege Inn and our 2nd stay at The Cottage. We love the location, so nice to be able to walk to so many restaurants and bakeries. As usual, The Cottage was SPOTLESS and comfortable. Matt is a 5 Star Innkeeper. Thanks, Matt for all the extras!!! Of course we will be back ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
