Perfect location. Everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

What a magnificent place. We parked our car and never drove it the whole weekend. Walking distance to all downtown attractions and restaurants. The house is amazingly preserved and authentic yet has all the modern conveniences. Ruthie really thought of everyThing hospitality wise. Chilled champagne upon welcome. Toiletries, coffee, even bathrobes. They really went The extra mile. We loved our stay here. It was perfect for a girls weekend with four ladies.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This historic home is so nice and the location is absolutely wonderful. Right next to the quiet George Washington Park, the bedrooms actually overlook that park. The historic area of Charleston is so walkable from the home. The owners are so kind and can easily be accessed if needed. Definitely recommend!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a perfect location for walking to everything we wanted to see while in Charleston. It's nicely tucked away off the street. We went for our yearly girl trip and would definitely stay here again.

The property is beautiful. And perfectly located. Our hosts were wonderful and over the top accommodating. Everything we needed was here. There is no better way to enjoy a stay in Charleston than by staying in a 1700's home! We are already planning our return trip!
