The Space

My home is a cozy 2 story cottage on the Leadenwah Creek, 19 miles southwest of downtown Charleston, SC. My bedroom & bath are downstairs. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs & a shared bath area. One of those bedrooms with a queen bed is featured for rent on this site. This is a new bed which is not yet in these photos. We have an outdoor shower with hot & cold water. The television is in the living room with 8 channels, including the major networks, & Apple TV featuring Netflix. Wireless internet is included.

Please note that I have 2 listings, the other Ruby Ranch - Marsh Bedroom, each offering a full-sized bed. There is a 3rd listing, The Ruby Ranch, if you desire to rent my entire home. If you have a 3rd person or a child or two, I also offer a comfortable couch, window seat, bed swing & double chaise for fetching a good night's rest. There will be a $15/night charge for extra sleepers in these spots.

My kitchen and living area is to be lived in as if it's your own. Meals taken on the porch overlooking the Leadenwah Creek are peaceful and relaxing. My washer and dryer are available for you, also.

Enjoy the quiet peace that Wadmalaw and my 10 wooded acres afford you. Take a free tour through the woods & neighboring cemetery accompanied by my 4-legged guides, Moose, Stella & newly-adopted William. (A belly-rub tip is greatly appreciated.) Swim, kayak, fish, enjoy the sunset from my private dock. If it's cool, have a bonfire. Fresh eggs, compliments of Sammy & Maggie, are available & encouraged. Country amenities abound at my home.

My birder visitors have exclaimed about the rookery, laden with no less than a dozen white egrets, existing in a tall, droopy tree jutting out from a hunk of mud in our marsh. This lush marsh, tidal creek and mud out my front door draw a variety of fowl, including Snowy & Great Egrets, Clapper Rails, Tri-Color Herons, and Red-Tailed Hawks, to name a few.

Your drive to nearby historic plantations is a tree-lined, country delight without city traffic. The same is true for day trips to the resort islands of Kiawah and Seabrook. John's Island is right next door with many relaxing activities, including horseback riding & farmers' markets. Our own Wadmalaw has America's only tea plantation and a local winery boasting the popular Sweet Tea vodka.

Folly Beach is a 23 mile drive. Kiawah's Beachwalker Park is 22 miles. This is owned & operated by Charleston County Parks and is a lovely drive on an oak-canopied country road.

Guest Access

Entire home, grounds and dock are available for our guests to enjoy; canines included! There is a blow dryer and flat iron, also.

Interaction with Guests

My interaction with guests depends on my work and social schedule. Often I hardly see my guests at all, but sometimes we share meals together on the porch.

Other Things to Note

We have 3 friendly dogs & 3 hens that live outside. Your dog is welcome at our house, as well.

Please, no smoking house or porches.
