“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Our cottage was absolutely beautiful, very spacious, spotlessly clean and in a fantastic location only a 10 min drive to restaurants etc in Mount Pleasant area.
I didn't notice that the cottages looked a little 'worn' (see my pics!) They were in keeping with the 'beach' lifestyle and reminded us of the Caribbean or Queensland.
The pool area was great. There were plenty of sun loungers and pool towels. Breakfast was buffet style, perhaps a little limited in choice but that was not a problem and we could choose to eat it inside or out doors at one of the wide spacious tables.
Regrettably, we only stayed one night but would love to return.

We had our wedding weekend planned from Thursday-Sunday in June. We rented all 10 cottages for our wedding party and it couldn't have been better-we felt like the Biltmore's for a few days! In fact, the weekend exceeded our expectations in every way. To start, check-in was a breeze and very friendly-all the staff have the laid back "beach" attitude, which in no way should be taken negatively. It was nice to have very attentive, yet very normal, people working diligently for you. The smallest request by us or our guests was always met. The cottages themselves are wonderful. Several reviews state the "slightly worn" look-folks, it's 2 feet from the harbor-unobstructed salt air and wind, a good problem to have. And no, they are not even close to being aged. The cleaning staff is wonderful and very good. The grounds are great, the pool was incredible, the breakfast was a nice touch, along with the snacks/beverages provided through out the day. But by far the best thing was sitting on the screened porch in the morning, sipping coffee barefoot (nursing a hangover) and time and time again we heard, "this is incredible". If possible, try to rent the whole property, it's incredible to have the whole place to yourselves. If getting married, do everything on site-ceremony and reception-to beautiful to go anywhere else. We wish we could do it all over again, we will certainly be back.

We have stayed at the Cottages several times during the last few years at holidays, summertime and fall, and have not wanted to leave when it was time to go. We find the location very convenient, the staff very helpful and friendly and the cottages equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Yes, the cottages are showing a little wear, but we've always found them clean and neat, and if we used all of the creamer, tea or coffee, a note to the housekeeper and it was restocked. Noise from the resort next door was no worse than the kids in the other cottages and at the pool. The only negative comment I have is that they are difficult to book for weekends and holidays now that they are so popular.

Room Tip: Ask for a waterfront cottage...there is only one lagoon cottage.

The place was adorable. We traveled with one other couple while doing some boating and visiting Charleston, Isle of Palms, and Sullivan's Island. We had our own cottage with a kitchen and each bedroom has its own private bath, which is a plus. Small intimate resort. The staff was outstanding an went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The Cottages are located in an ideal location for traveling to downtown, less that a 10 minute drive. The decor is a little tired BUT the atmosphere and serenity of this resort makes up for that. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone. We had a wonderful time while staying there.

Room Tip: Cottage 3 has a great view of Charleston.

We loved the cottages and it was a great venue for a cousins' reunion -2 mature couples.
The serenity and the view at dawn across the harbour to Charleston was gorgeous.
However, yes, some bits are a little tired -especially where exposed to the sea air.
Housekeeping was irregular and things like tea and coffee were not replaced.
One surprise was the early start of the wedding parties! The complex was booked out for the weekend for a wedding -but several cottages were booked all week - and from mid week the site was over run with outside visitors as well as those booked in -with loud music at the pool and playing group games on the lawn outside our cottage at sunset -when we would have enjoyed being on our deck in peace!

This was one of the best family vacations we have ever taken. We drove to the Cottages at Charleston Harbor on Christmas Day from DC and were immediately ensconsed in a beautiful world of southern hospitality. The cottage we stayed in--"Heaven"--was absolutely lovely. Well-appointed, comfortable decor and a great layout. There were two bedrooms, a sofa bed in the living room and three bathrooms. Our cottage faced Charleston Harbor, where we got to gaze on tranquil palm trees and palmettos, while huge barges and cruise ships would incongruously sail by. The location is excellent because it is just across the bridge from DT Charleston, so all of our day trips took us back to our tranquil cottage. Mt. Pleasant is a charming, upscale suburb of Charleston and a fantastic Whole Foods (and other stores) are nearby. The kitchen is perfectly stocked with top-shelf cooking supplies and the whole cottage layout lends itself well to housing a family of five very comfortably. We had a very nice continental breakfast every morning in the club house and the concierges were all extremely helpful. We loved it!

My husband and I just returned from our 2nd visit to the cottages. We will become regulars. We started the week traveling in the Northeast but the weather was so bad we had to return to SC. We called on our way down and they had a cottage available. Cottage # 6 – Everything was perfect. I cannot remember when I have relaxed so much. Sitting on the porch looking at the harbor is close to heaven. We were there during restaurant week and made reservations for all 3 nights – we canceled 2 nights to stay on the porch and watch wildlife in the harbor. (Fish, birds, fishermen) We love the location. We have stayed downtown when visiting Charleston for years but this is better. We can go downtown for dining and shopping and Visit the beach at the Isle of Palms and return to the peace of this cottage. They will have to get used to seeing us around, we will be coming back again and again.
