Beautiful Carriage home and wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 night stay in this very comfy beautiful home. This home has been lovingly cared for. We enjoyed the homemade goodies each morning and all anyone could want for other breakfast options ! Such a great location we were able to walk to many sites and restaurants. Cannot wait to visit again. Thanks Becky, it was a pleasure to stay in your home!

Great Location and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I come to Charleston for the beautiful city and the amazing countryside. Becky and Bill's place is perfect for both. It is walking distance to everything in town and the parking space is perfect for our excursions.

The space is really well decorated, comfortable and functional. They have artifacts from the original space and a binder that details it all. The outside space is elegant but welcoming. We had a great time watching the squirrels gather pecans from the yard. And, a morning newspaper was just too sweet.

Becky, Bill and their family could not have been nicer. We were lucky enough to meet 3 generations. They know just the right amount of attention that their guests need. Becky loves to bake and shares a different yummy treat each day.

They had great suggestions for dining!

I would definitely recommend.

The accommodations and location were perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a charming house with a private entrance into a kitchen and living area with an upstairs bedroom and bath. The owners made us feel so welcome with their special touches - allowing us to park in driveway (rather than side street), a continental breakfast (including some homemade items), fresh towels, daily newspaper at our doorstep and so many other personal touches. We were walking distance to shopping and dining so really didn't use the car much. We will definitely stay there again!!

Excellent location and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and I stayed at this wonderful place and had an great experience. If you enjoy walking, the location is perfectly situated in the heart of Charleston. Otherwise, it is an easy drive to surrounding beaches, islands, landmarks. The home is well furnished with plenty of clean towels, toiletries, kitchen items, local books & guides, etc. The continental breakfast was a great way to start the day, especially the home baked scones and cakes. The gardens were beautiful and enjoyable to relax in after a long day exploring this fine city. The hosts were very gracious and available for any questions we had or for just good conversation. Southern hospitality at its finest!

The perfect Charleston retreat

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I met up to celebrate a birthday, and we stayed in this lovely retreat. It's not a large space, but it has everything you need, the location can't be beat (you can walk to everything in the historic district), it is very clean and nicely decorated, the courtyard is gorgeous, and the owners are lovely. We did pay for the extra twin bed, and we were very comfortable. So for 2 - 3 people who are comfortable sharing a room and bath, it's perfect. We would definitely do it again. Thanks to the owners for their wonderful hospitality!
