We have spring vacationed at the Marsh Cabin for the past three years with our two labradoodles and have enjoyed every minute of it. If you are looking for a place that is beautiful, quiet and pet friendly, then this is the place for you. Charleston is only minutes away with close access to St. James and St. Johns Islands. If you are golfers, there are two very nice reasonably priced golf courses within a 15 minute drive.

The Marsh Cabin is elevated on the waterfront and has a large deck and screened in porch from where beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed. The interior of the cabin is rustic and appointed with everything needed for both humans and their pets. Importantly, the entire area of about 2+acres is fenced so your pets can roam unleashed – hard to find these days. The owners, Kim and Rob live next door with a similar fenced in area for their animals as Kim’s hobby is dog agility training. They are wonderful hosts and can provide much advice as to what to do and see around Charleston – especially great places to eat that are relatively unknown to tourists.

Finally, you don’t have to have a pet to enjoy this property. It is peaceful, away from traffic and a great place to relax in a southern setting. It doesn’t have wifi but if you really need it, a hot spot can be created from a cell phone.

Beautiful marsh cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent the last here and I have to say this is one of the nicest spots we’ve ever been. The house itself is in great condition and well stocked (so no need to overpack supplies), and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. Large fenced in area, very pet friendly (the house even has dog toys, beds, and a crate for your fur baby), and the screened in porch is the perfect spot to spend your downtime.

When you’re at the cabin, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere because the cabin overlooks the marsh and is very private, but you’re only about 10 minutes away from the grocery store/Walgreens/etc., and 15-20 minutes away from downtown Charleston. When you go, be sure to take binoculars so you can fully enjoy all of the wildlife that calls the marsh home. While we were there, we were able to watch the fish jumping out of the water, the birds (I even caught a glimpse of a bald eagle early one morning!), and be sure to listen for the armadillos playing at night… With a small flashlight, you can see them running just on the other side of the fence under the porch and playing tag!

The only thing missing is wifi, which turned out to be a great thing… The whole family unplugged for the week and we got back to spending our time in face-to-face conversations instead of staring at a laptop or tablet during our time together. We’ve already decided that we want to visit this cabin again for our next Charleston trip!

Wonderful treasure!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place for me, my daughter and 2 Brittany dogs while we attended a wedding in Charleston in April. My dogs are young and barkers when in a new place, so I needed a place where they wouldn't disturb anyone and have a fenced area in case they needed to go out in the middle of the night.

But our stay at this lovely cottage rewarded us with such a special holiday on top of all my original needs. Kim was so lovely and helpful and even kept an eye on my dogs during the wedding. All of us loved the beautiful house with such comfortable beds as well as the lovely extras I can't thank Kim enough for (like coffee and cream!).

The large fenced area was huge and my dogs enjoyed being able to run around and I could let them out in the middle of the night as was needed. The pictures don't do this place justice!

The lovely screen porch was a favorite spot. The view of the grasses and water were wonderful and I even saw 5 white-tailed deer run by as I was looking over a map to find the wedding location. My sister was also in town at a hotel and came over to join me for dinner and a movie and loved it so much she stayed the night instead of returning to her hotel.

What a treat to find such a quiet remote retreat that is also so close to the highway and with easy access to everything.

I came to Chaleston only for my nephew's wedding but left with such lovely memories of our stay at this cottage retreat. Thanks so much Kim and we loved the benne wafers!

A Fantastic Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently spent a week at this beautiful "Marsh Cabin." It provided the perfect relaxing place to unwind after the "busyness" of our days spent seeing the sights in Charleston. The cabin was clean, updated and cozy. We began our mornings on the porch with a cup of coffee and ended the day watching lovely sunsets (and an amazing thunderstorm) with a glass of wine. Our little terrier enjoyed roaming around the grounds and felt right at home in the cabin. She loved the big dog pillow! The cabin is away from everything and yet we were able to get to Charleston within 20 mins. Don't miss the Angel Oak Tree on Johns Island (a short drive) and the Angel Oak Restaurant was divine (you will want to get there early for dinner)! Loved Magnolia Plantation (again- a short drive) and highly recommend the tram ride for wildlife and property viewing. The cabin was perfect for our family of four and Kim and Rob were so accomodating and easy to work with. If we ever find ourselves in the Charleston area again, we will be sure to stay here! We loved it!

Looking for Peace and Tranquility . . . This is the Place

  • 5 of 5

Spent one week in this heavenly cabin. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is absolutely amazing, serene and breathtaking. Spent a lot of hours on the deck, drinking coffee and wine. The drive into Charleston is easy and coming home to this place is just what you need after a long day.

They owners did not forget anything and the cabin is sparkling clean. It was so nice to bring our dog with us and he felt right at home.

We did not want to leave and will likely be back.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. Big yard for the dogs, very nice hosts in Rob and Kim, and beautiful cabin. Many thoughtful amenities not usually found in rentals. Peaceful and quite at night, but right off Hwy. 17 and less than 30 minutes to downtown. Highly recommend.
