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.

Excellent location & very accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

My family & I traveled for a wedding. Minus the bad mosquitos in the vicinity (which were likely a direct result of the bad humidity that weekend), the accommodations couldn't have been any better. My family loved the location & charm of the carriage house, my son loved playing in the adjacent park & watching the horse carriages going by, and we just enjoyed the peace & quiet away from the activities of the wedding weekend. The owners lived on the front of the property and were exceptionally friendly and ensured that we were taken care of. Highly recommend.

The house was amazing it felt like a resort. Location was right in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Ruthie and her parents were kind, welcoming, and beyond hospitable. The house was impeccably clean and organized. The back patio was the perfect way to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. I would recommend this listing to any of my friends and family. My friends and I didn't want to leave when our stay was over. We are already planning for next year. Ruthie took the time to find out what we wanted to do while in Charleston and showed us where to go and what her favorite places were. The house sits right in the middle of downtown, walking distance to everything. Even though it's in the mix of downtown the house offered seclusion and privacy and even a bit of notoriety. We laughed about feeling like celebrities because every time we walked down the private drive the people on the street would look surprised and impressed that we were allowed to enter. It was one of our favorite parts about walking around. If you want a resort experience with the comforts of home and family definitely stay at this house! We will miss you Ruthie!!!

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!
