Wow! This is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Charleston and this house did not disappoint. From the moment we drove up we were in love with this carriage house. The location was perfect for us - we could easily walk to wonderful restaurants and through charming neighborhoods. The owner, Ruthie, could not have been more accommodating. She provided us with a wonderful guide which we used before and while we were there. We took her suggestions for the walks through the neighborhoods on our own. She was always available when help was needed or with suggestions.

The home itself was lovely and the perfect size for us. My husband and I traveled with our son and his girlfriend. It was nice to be in such an old home that was modernized but in a way to keep it's southern charm. It is just as nice as the pictures portray.

I would definitely stay in this house again on our next trip to Charleston

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful week at the Carriage House while we explored historic Charleston and loved everything about it—perfect location, attractively furnished interior, beautiful outdoor sitting area, and comfortable beds with lovely linens. Ruthie provides invaluable information about the best restaurants, walks and activities in the area which enhanced our overall experience immeasurably. We cannot imagine ever finding a better place to stay in Charleston—it is simply the best!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at the Ravenel's carriage house, by far the best location in Charleston. The location is a short walk to hundreds of activities, yet tucked off Broad Street in a quiet courtyard. If you are looking for a safe, convenient location for a your family or a group of friends, this is the perfect spot.

Wow this house will not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Located amidst historically interesting architecture the Carriage House was the perfect place to stay for our quick visit. Ruthie could not have been a better hostess always a text or phone call away when we had a question. We hoped it would be available next month again but disappointed it was not. If you are lucky enough to book this house my advice don’t hesitate! Thanks Ruthie!

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! Close proximity to everything in Downtown Charleston! The size of the common space was great and the outdoor brick paver patio was an added bonus. The home was very clean and beds were extremely comfortable. Will definitely stay again on our next trip.

Location

Car: not necessary

Fantastic location in the heart of Downtown Charleston. One door away from the Four Corners of Law. Walk to everything including gourmet restaurants, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, theatre venues, nightlife, and much more! The PERFECT location for Spoleto USA and other arts events and festivals. Live the downtown lifestyle in this historic part of the old walled city!
