Very neat little house and close to Charleston and the casino. Would stay again.
The rental process and check-in was very easy. Everything was very clean! The details of the cottage were perfect. Fresh/soft towels, coffee bar, bedrooms were cute and inviting. Thanks for a great stay!
My Stay in Cross Lanes
Overall good experience. There was no communication with the owner except to remind me to leave and what time. Everything was comfortable, the house was clean and well supplied. I would stay again if the opportunity arose.
Mom Daughter weekend getaway!
The house was adorable, clean and close to everything. It was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the weekend. Nancy was a great hostess. I would recommend staying at any of her properties
Conveniently located. Met all our needs.
Cross Lanes Stay
It was a wonderful place to stay. It was pretty and it met our needs. Enjoyed seeing the sunsets from the kitchen window. We loved the wood wall covering in the kitchen and bathroom. We also enjoyed seeing the squirrels playing in the tree outside from the kitchen.
