Rental Home
Cottage End is a roomy, family vacation house I built for my children and their children. As a lifelong woodworker, I've tried to fill the house with cherry and maple cabinets and ash floors with cherry accents, and exposed rafters under the cypress ceilings. We're located on a narrow dirt road that has Clark Sound for a backdrop. We're on a dead end street so we have very little and very slow traffic. Cottage End has three bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and a half bath in the laundry room. The house sleeps 8 people comfortably. The master bedroom has a king bed. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a queen bed and a twin bed. One of the upstairs bedrooms also has a full size baby bed. One of my favorite things at Cottage End is the kitchen.

As a lifelong woodworker, I've tried to fill the house with cherry and maple cabinets and ash floors with cherry accents, and exposed rafters under the cypress ceilings. We're located on a narrow dirt road that has Clark Sound for a backdrop. We're on a dead end street so we have very little and very slow traffic. Cottage End has three bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and a half bath in the laundry room. The house sleeps 8 people comfortably. The master bedroom has a king bed. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a queen bed and a twin bed. One of the upstairs bedrooms also has a full size baby bed. One of my favorite things at Cottage End is the kitchen. With cherry cabinets all around, the large island contains the gas range and the island has seating on two sides. Cooking shrimp and grits while my family and friends around the island enjoying a glass of wine and conversation is my idea of a good time. We also have a screened porch in the rear. WIFI is available. We're located on James Island and it's 12 minutes to Folly Beach and 14 minutes to downtown Charleston. Also, we're less than 10 minutes from James Island County Park where there are walking/biking trails, a climbing wall, dog park, and water park that the kids love. Also, there is a free water spray park for the little kids. In considering renting my home, please be aware that I do not allow any parties, receptions, or other events that brings in multiple people and vehicles. My parking is limited and the neighbors do not appreciate large, loud events on this quiet street. If you are interested in canoeing or kayaking, there are several companies nearby that rent Kayaks. Sea Kayak Carolina at 793 Folly Road has boats for rent and you have to drive right by their place to get to Cottage End. Also, there are Kayaks for rent at James Island /'county Park. If you decide to request dates for booking, an inquiry, please let me know the make-up of your group and, in general, the purpose of your visit. Doing this will save me the time of sending you messages as to who is asking to rent my family vacation home.More

About the neighborhood
Cottage End is located at the end of Cottage Road on James Island. The street is narrow and dirt and the residents there would have it no other way. The street is a dead end so there is no traffic and the neighbors all drive slowly. Being on this street is like going back to the 1950's. The neighborhood is mostly older homes and many of the residents are retired. Cottage Road runs parallel to Clark Sound, so there is always a view ... changing hourly as the tide flows in and out. Parking is in front and to the left. Three to Four cars can be parked there. As you look out the front window at Clark Sound, you are looking at the sight where two foot bridges were built to carry reinforcements across to Ft Lamar which was one of the forts that surrounded Charleston during the Civil War siege...
