Nice cottage right on the water (not for swimming). Screened in poach for cabin 3 is huge with hammock, chairs; table. Master is big with good attached bathroom. Second bedroom much smaller, bathroom needs work. Whole place could use refreshing. No maid service because I’d COVID and unhelpful front desk. Pool is small and shallow. Location is handy.

We had to cancel our initial wedding plans due to covid, however we replanned and held a much, much smaller family ceremony at the Cottages in order to respect social distancing. The cottage was very clean and the view was amazing. We saw many dolphins, birds, and even an alligator out in the water! I would highly recommend staying at the cottages. The staff was very accommodating.

We are sharing our experience to protect other couples from the despair and frustration we experienced. We booked our September 29, 2018 wedding at the Cottages on Charleston Harbor in February 2018. We live in Texas and were very excited about our destination wedding in Charleston! We contracted with the venue for more than $8,000 worth of accommodations, including the event space fee. We also signed a room block contract with the neighboring resort for our guests of $4,000. Our contract with the Cottages also required a catering commitment of $6,500 minimum and a tent rental fee of at least $1,000. We were fully committed to our wedding and this venue, to say the least. In August 2018, we discovered a national touring indie rock concert had been booked, a double-header, at the exact same time and 10 feet away from our wedding. There’s nothing keeping the neighboring property from throwing a carnival the day of your wedding. They had no written agreement in place, we had no legal opportunity to fight back. The “partnership” is extremely irresponsible. We were told that they would surely solve the situation and waited a full week before being informed that they would not move or cancel the concert. They were able to come up with a “solution” of shuttling our guests to the neighboring golf course for the reception… not sure how they were going to pull that off with 800+ concert guests milling around at the same time. We lost all trust in the Cottages and they released us from our contract. With 45 days left before our wedding, we moved everything to a new location. This entire scenario was a nightmare. And when we asked for $700 in reimbursement to cover a small portion of our costs for changing venues, they declined and blamed the neighboring venue. We were never reimbursed.

While it is true The Charleston Harbor Resort did book a concert over your dates - I immediately started dialog with the general manager at the resort to see how this could have happened. There is an approval process for all of the events held at the resort, and events have to be permitted by the Town of Mt Pleasant and our property approving is part of the process. I contacted the town and no permit had been approved; and they were willing to deny the permit. I called you from my vacation and shared this information with you-This was ten days after we both found out about the event. Prior to me leaving you pushed that you wanted to cancel, I told you I was also working with the town and I asked you to wait a few more days. I called you from my vacation and told you the town would deny the permit. You did not want your wedding with us. We thoughtfully allowed you out of your contract . You still used our exclusive caterer. It did take longer than a week to get information from the town. But you did not have to move this event, you chose to move this event. In good faith, and so your wedding would be wonderful, we allowed you out of your contract and refunded all monies paid to us.

Beautiful views of Charleston harbor, sound of gentle waves lapping, tranquil, private, wonderful bird watching from the huge screened porch ( but the cushions on the wicker chairs were old and dirty) The cottage is very spacious... double height ceiling, 2 good sized bedrooms, 3 full baths.one handicapped accessible, efficient kitchen, fireplace. closet space galore.Perfect layout for two couples. Cottages 4,5, 6 have the best views. The service is a bit erratic but warm and welcoming. esp.Kim the concierge. You definitely need a car.. food delivery is poor, and the location on Patriots Pt. while lovely is a bit isolated. Breakfast was not much..too many pastries and sweets and everything was served on plastic.. I would skip it and make you own in your cottage. The pool is gorgeous, but it is not heated and it was too chilly in mid April to swim.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We enjoyed having you and your husband stay as our guests. Our continental breakfast with one hot item also has a variety of yogurts, fresh fruit, cereals, hard boiled eggs, bagels and cream cheese as well as the pastries you mentioned. We did increase the available pastries the week of your stay because we were blessed to have many families on property that weekend. In our area, restaurant and take out food, is delivered by Grub Hub, Uber Eats and Door Dash. For our guests traveling without a car, personal car service is available to bring you to your desired designation. Our outdoor pool is not heated but is conveniently located adjacent to our hot tub, both overlooking Charleston Harbor. Lisa
