About Matt Eldridge

I was born in Charleston. After graduating from The College of Charleston, I left Charleston, traveling and working at several resorts along the way. After two years and living in several different states, I realized what a special place Charleston was and decided to return home.

I took over as Innkeeper in 2012 after a successful career in sales and have loved it ever since. The best part of what I do is having the privilege to meet many of our guests who have traveled from places near & far to enjoy the city I love.

Matt Eldridge purchased this condo in 2007

Why Matt Eldridge chose Charleston

We love the Cannonborough-Elliotborough Neighborhood, which is located just west of Upper-King Street in Downtown Charleston. We purchased the property in 2007 as an opportunity to carefully renovate a unique Charleston home; bringing it up-to-date, while restoring it to it's original glory. It's been fun to be part of all the exciting changes that have taken place in the area over the years

.

What makes this condo unique

While extensive renovation of the property was completed in 2008, we worked hard to preserve the original character that gives it historic significance. We added modern conveniences, such as marble countertops, custom cabinetry throughout, new appliances in the kitchen, laundry facilities, upgraded electric, plumbing, and central heat & air. We carefully restored hard-wood floors, repaired crown molding and the diamond-grid windows. All of this allows our guests to stay in comfort in a property that has been part of Charleston since 1910.

The Rutledge Avenue Inn is owner-operated.

Perfect Charleston Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came in town for a wedding and this was the perfect spot. It was within walking distance to king street and the farmer's market. The place was clean and cozy. It was prefect for a couple. We were able to enjoy the full kitchen for breakfast. We will be back FOR SURE! Love it here. Thanks again Matt for all your help!! 5 stars

Beautiful apartment, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the apartment and Matt's attentiveness. We stay in condos or apartments when we travel. And this one has been one of the best. The online information and pictures were exactly what we found. (which is always a good thing)The accommodations were wonderful. We had everything we needed. Plus it was clean and looked recently updated in a very tasteful manner. Communication with Matt prior to our arrival and after we arrived was quick and helpful. He was always a phone call or email away. We walked most places and used the free DASH bus service. We also had a car and spent time driving around town and to Folly Beach. There were brochures in the apartment with touring ideas along with information about places to eat. If you have a car, the alley is quite narrow, which is true for all the homes that have parking in the back. But there is street parking if necessary and Matt assisted us with that as well. You will not be disappointed.

Very comfortable, roomy unit. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in D4, the unit at back of this lovely old home. Parking was very convenient to our entrance and there was no street noise at all. The only downside was the noise of the A/C units (3 or 4 of them) for the whole house, which were right outside our living room window. We got used to it. The kitchen was very nicely done and also quite large. Good refrigerator. The house's location is near the college and some good restaurants, just a short drive to downtown. We would certainly stay there again.
