This is an offering for one of our large guest suites with a private bath. This is not an offering for the rental of the entire house. This historic home is large and inviting and elegantly furnished with English antiques, wool oriental rugs, and lovely artwork. Each suite has a queen bed and private bath. Each room has a TV with DirecTV, a ceiling fan, and comfortable seating. All guests enjoy a den, living room, and downstairs sitting room, plus the two big porches on the front of the house. We are well suited for young professionals, older couples, or solo travelers who want a safe, home-like environment. Please note: we not rent to smokers or vapers, not even those who promise to smoke outside. Also be advised, we have 3 gentle, low-dander Siamese cats. Also be advised, we have 3 gentle, low-dander Siamese cats who live in the house. Because we could have rented to others, we do not refund your stay if you arrive and announce you can't be around cats; this is your notice of their being here.
We are offering use of one of our beautiful suites with a large bath. This is not a whole house rental. Enjoy the den and big screen TV. You may have the space to yourself, however, it just depends. We have a big porch on the first floor you are also welcome to enjoy. This is a big house and there are plenty of spaces for as much privacy as you want, or as much fun with the other guests as you desire.
Interaction with guests
We interact with guests a lot, if that is what they seem to want. I am as available as they desire, or as invisible as seems appropriate. Some people want complete privacy and others want to get to know us and the other guests and learn about Charleston and what it's like to live here. You can read our reviews to get a sense of how we interact. Most people are very friendly and outgoing and we really get to know them and feel a genuine pang when they must finally leave; it has been quite amazing to meet so many wonderful folks.

We enjoy having guests and we take wonderful care of them! We tell our visitors that we think of them as long lost cousins who have finally come to see us. It's fun to have folks who are seeing our beautiful Historic District for the first time.
