We had stayed at The Cottages on Charleston Harbor about 5 years ago and found it to be perfection . We booked another stay there in Jan 2015 to celebrate our anniversary. The cottages are private and most of them have an excellent view of the Harbor. Charleston is nearby by either water taxi or a 10 minute drive. The... More

Have vacationed here 5 of the last 6 years. My family and I count it as our favorite place to visit. So much to offer. Great for leisure or, if you desire, it is a very convenient location from which to tour Charleston. But we love to sit on the screened in porch and watch the ships come and go....which... More

A group of us stayed in two cottages for a long weekend. The Cottages is in an amazing location, right on the water overlooking Charleston Harbor. The beautiful porches were peaceful and relaxing! It was nice to be able to walk across to the water taxi and the Fish House area where there is a great restaurant and a little... More

Thank you for such a detailed review of your stay with us. Our cottages are perfect for relaxing and spending time to enjoy family and friends. We will be addressing the exterior once we get past this high occupancy and humid weather. If you'd like to contact me directly I am interested in hearing about your concierge experience. We look...

We've just completed a three night weekend stay at The Cottages. We could not have been happier. The purpose of our weekend was for my friend and me to get to know each other by spending time in Charleston. We had our weekend meticulously planned out; however, after checking in to our cottage and experiencing a incredible level of comfort... More

I have visited the Cottages several other times in the past and was excited to have my sisters join me for a visit. I had told them how pretty the Cottages were and how relaxing and had convinced them that the Cottages were worth the money. We splurged and went for a stay of Sunday through Wednesday. What a disappointment!... More

Hi Lovinlife3838 - Thank you very much for staying with us in March 2015 and for discussing your stay with me while you were still here. We are shocked and disappointed to read of your “Disappointed” review.

My wife told me not to write this because she didn't want others to know what a hidden gem this place is.

Hi Rocky132 - First it was so great to meet you and your family! Our repeat guests would agree with your wife - they shared their experience with friends and those friends did the same and now sometimes our repeat guests have a hard time getting a cottage or their favorite cottage because we are sold out. We would not... More

Spotlessly clean cottage, beautiful furnishings, idyllic setting steps from the water, screened porch with hammock, and a friendly staff willing and able to help with all our needs. I would give more than 5 stars if possible!

what a magical, beautiful place. This cottage is on the charleston harbor. So peaceful and quiet. Palm trees all around with the sun kissing thru the palms. Sail boats sailing all around. The cottage has a huge screened in porch with hammocks and rocking chairs.

We are so thrilled that you had the same words and then shared those so others can imagine their stay through experience. Come back and see us again soon!

The Cottage was lovely. Clean and spacious. Location was great. The jets on the whirlpool tub did not work and maintenance was not able to fix them before we left. Also, not having to venture out to the clubhouse for a continental breakfast would be nice. Just put the bagels, yogurt and fruit in the cottage for the guests and... More

We learned about The Cottages a few years ago and have wanted to visit for some time. What a special place! The cottages are lovely, comfortable, and appointed with real grace and charm (but not at all stuffy). They are situated to afford as much privacy as possible and all cottages facing the harbor have an expansive view of the... More

Hello Ludwellmom! I must say you are an AWESOME ambassador not only for The Cottages, but for Charleston in general. We are working on the lighting in the living rooms as we speak.
