About this listing
Large guest suites, private baths, or private cozy cottage for 2 to 30+ nights rentals! A LEGAL rental approved by the City! SEE OUR RAVE REVIEWS FOR OUR BEAUTIFUL ROOMS, GREAT LOCATION AND SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY!
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. Each of these rooms has a fireplace and we often have them on in cold weather. 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, not even those who promise to smoke outside.
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 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.
People love our location because it is an easy walk to everything they come to see! 3 blocks from King Street, 2 blocks from Meeting Street, 1 block from East Bay. This is a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, unlike some of the hotels or B&B's on busy streets that have so much traffic and street noise.
The Historic District has a wonderful free trolly that you can hop on or off as much as you like at their various stops located in convenient places. Catch a free ride all over town as it makes it loop.
Other Things to Note
Starbucks is a half block away. Harris Teeter grocery is 2.5 blocks away. The downtown shopping center with a drug store, liquor and wine store, and deli is 2 blocks away.
We not rent to smokers, not even those who promise to smoke outside and not even to those who use vapor pens. Please no EXCESSIVE drinking. We are well suited for older couples or maybe a professional lady or solo traveling woman who wants a very safe environment, or just tame folks who behave respectably. There is nothing wild going on at our house.
Tanning Products and Acne Medications. If someone has an airbrushed tan, uses tanning cosmetics or Accutane (Isotretinoin) or similar meds, our sheets, towels, and even upholstery will be ruined. Please bring your own bed linens and towels if you use any of these products. If you've forgotten, we can give you some permanently discolored but clean sheets for the bed or to drape on the sofa and chairs. Ruined sheets, towels or upholstery will mean we'll keep your damage deposit.
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.
