    Welcome to our tiny guest cottage hidden in the heart of the city. Perfect for a stay or a work-from-home alternative. It's within blocks of restaurants, coffee shops, an art movie house, and a lovely river walk. The business district & UofSC are a short walk or bike ride away. At the rear of our home, it’s private, secure & quiet. A partition & movable screen separate the bathroom area. There’s a smart tv, small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker & work-table. Enhanced cleaning. 24 hr self check-in

    “This little cottage is cute, cozy and the perfect place to stay for a short stint in Columbia! The backyard is full of beautiful flowers and plenty of seating, so you can spend your evenings relaxing. The cottage is small but has everything you could need, including a mini fridge, microwave, and a variety of snacks and drinks. I would definitely stay here again!”

    Mid Century Modern Lake Cottage

    We love the pastoral setting of this mid century modern cottage in a quiet neighborhood. It is close to Fort Jackson, USC, and Downtown. It has been totally remodeled with new appliances, bathroom and kitchen. There is a screened porch and one other outdoor seating area for you to enjoy the creek and lake setting.

    What guests are saying:

    “This place is such a hidden gem in Columbia! Immersed in nature yet only ten minutes from city center. The house itself is so charming with floor-to-ceiling windows that bring in so much natural light and super serene outdoor areas with beautiful views of the woods. We didn’t even feel the need to go out some days. Great family getaway!”
