Way better than staying at a B&B, this is like having your own two-story house in a quiet residential Charleston neighborhood, but with all the benefits of staying at a five-star hotel. Lisa and Geoff have thought of everything: We arrived to find all sorts of goodies in the kitchen ( from a nice bottle of wine to a chocolate... More

Our family of 4 adults stayed at Charlotte Street Cottage for a week during Christmas. The cottage is lovely and welcoming. Even though the cottage is an older lovingly restored structure, inside there is a perfect blend of all the modern amenities you need. From the moment you enter through the gate you are welcomed by the most lovely gardens... More

The Charlotte St Cottage was an absolutely wonderful guest house in every way. The building is well-appointed and in great shape. The gardens are beautiful. The hosts, who live in the main house on grounds, could not have been friendlier. They made us feel like we were their personal guests and friends. They corrected the few problems IMMEDIATELY!

We stayed five nights at this intimate, well-appointed cottage in a private garden that made our visit to Charleston an authentic Southern experience. It’s an old brick cottage that used to be a “kitchen house” in the back of a large home on a tree-lined street. It is centrally located, walking distance to the main town and the College of... More

A great stay in Charleston, definitely influences that living in town is fun and exciting. Renting the cottage allows the flexibility and space for more possibilities than simply staying in a bed and breakfast or hotel. Our air condition was acting up a little bit but Lisa got it fixed immediately which was fabulous. Also if you like history, I... More

Located in the gorgeous historic section of Charleston, SC, we found the Charlotte Street Cottage to be completely satisfying and even finer than we anticipated. It is considerably more spacious and comfortable than a suite in a fine hotel. Plus it is completely set up as a two bedroom home-away-from-home with all appliances, furnishings, air-conditioning and internet. The cottage is... More

“This is an antebellum guest house that is part of an historic, residential property. It is not a hotel. It has two bedrooms and one full bath upstairs. It has a full kitchen that is well-appointed. Don't plan to make dinner; the restaurants in Charleston are too good to miss. Ask the hosts for their recommendations.”
