Beautiful City, Lovely Cottage, Great reunion

  • 5 of 5

My four sisters and I enjoyed our stay in Charleston at the Cottage, 194 Rutledge Avenue. It is a beautiful space with all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. The beds are great. So comfortable. The furnishings are lovely but also encourage you to relax. We really appreciated the beach chairs too. You are right in the heart of the city, able to walk to many sites and restaurants. And, of course, the cottage is right across from the Hominy Grill. Delicious.

Above all, Matt, the proprietor, is very responsive to the questions and needs of his guests both before and during the stay.

Without reservation, I would recommend this lovely cottage to Charleston visitors.

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was the perfect place for a vacation in historic Charleston! Matt was super easy to work with, friendly, helpful with restaurant suggestions, and all Charleston experiences! Our family of four (husband, 2 adult children, and myself) loved the area of town it is in! This home is right across the street from Hominy Grill and within a block of Fuel - we ate at both spots twice! There are many other close-by choices. It's about a 20-30 minute walk to King or Meeting Streets, but we didn't mind it because we enjoyed walking down streets lined with historic homes, lush foliage, & tried to stay on the shady side :). We did call an Uber a few times when it was super hot or after we had walked all day. Price was around $6.

Other favorite things about the cottage:

- Nice sized living area, kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms

- Plenty of drawer space in bedrooms and bathrooms

- Large walk-in master closet, plenty of hangers

- Powder bath downstairs

- Kitchen very well stocked! There were even spices. We were tired the first night, and didn't have reservations anywhere, so we went to the nearby grocery store (Harris Teeter) and picked up dinner, plus fruit, veggies, snacks, & drinks for the week. They had everything we needed.

- parking spot designated for the cottage :)

- laundry room with detergent and dryer sheets

- super comfy beds - firm mattresses!

- lots of literature to read to help you decide what to do on your visit

*Look for the little book titled, Very Charleston by Diana Gessler, on the table in the living room! Or, buy it and enjoy before you come!

- We remembered to bring bug spray, but if not, there was some in the laundry room cabinet.

- Good water pressure in showers

- AC felt great after spending the day in the heat & humidity of Charleston in the summer.

I was overwhelmed with choices for restaurants, so here are a few we tried and liked:

Hominy Grill, Fuel, Magnolias, Hyman's Seafood, Vickery's Shem Creek Bar & Grill in Mount Pleasant (waterfront), Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams :))

We also enjoyed Magnolia Plantation, Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie, Old Slave Mart Museum, The Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon, shopping on King Street, Pineapple Fountain along waterfront, & carriage ride historic tour!

So much more to see and do next time!

We have stayed in many vacation homes over the years. This Charming Cottage in Historic Charleston is one of my favorites! Thank you, Matt, for being an awesome host!

Comfortable accomodations in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week with our 5-month old infant. Without researching Charleston or the local area, we selected this cottage for its cuteness. Sometimes these things are a gamble, and this time we really hit the jackpot! The cottage itself is well appointed, comfortable, and beautiful. Attached, off-street parking was great to have. Two really great restaurants were less than 500 feet away (Hominy and Fuel). We were within a couple miles of all the hot spots, but far enough away to feel away from the tourists. I'd recommend this cottage to all of my friends. I'd tell everyone I DON"T like to go stay downtown.
