A beautiful home in an even more beautiful serene setting. Our group of girls had an amazing time and made wonderful memories. We enjoyed the house, the water and our wonderful 4legged tour guides and new friends! We happen to stumble upon stomp fest at Firefly Distillery and really enjoyed that! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Fran's place was one of the best houses we ever rented! Very private setting you can retreat to after a long day in Charleston and the house itself is so unique with gorgeous porches you just have to come experience on your own. Doggies were so friendly that all my children woke up extra early to be the one to feed Them. Swimming in the river with Hawkeyes and Stella is something we will forever cherish. Thank you Fran for sharing your gorgeous house!!!

My family couldn't have found a better place to get away and relax. The area of the creek we were on was private and peaceful. Easy to kayak out to the main branch and see dolphins. When tide was low we had a great time exploring with our 4 year old. Ruby Ranch was a perfect place to unwind and reconnect as a family and with nature. A place to create lifelong memories. Thank you Fran.

Quiet, relaxing, clean, and pleasant. This is a great house for a large group wanting to spend quality time together. It has a beautiful pier, kayaks, lovely porches, a well-equipped kitchen, and a picturesque fire pit. Fran is a lovely host and a pleasure to visit with. Would definitely return to this destination.

We planned a surprise birthday celebration for a friend, and Fran's place couldn't have been more perfect! Amazing communication, wonderful set-up and location. Sitting on the dock was absolutely perfect, and when some storms rolled in, we still had the amazing porch area. We had seven adults and there was more than enough room. Fran is by far one of the best hosts I've ever dealt with! We definitely did not want to leave. And, we plan to be back one hundred percent!

Our son had a great time with the dogs when were at the house. We also had some competitive backgammon matches. We were able to make several meals there at the house. It was a nice private place to relax after a hot humid day touring the Charleston area. The swing on the back deck and the hammock by the dock were great spots to relax.

Fran was a fantastic host! What a pleasure. This may have been one of the best long weekends I have ever experienced. Dock was amazing and the pups ( Hawkeye and Stella ) were also a joy! My next trip will be with my children and family!!

I was born and raised in Estill, SC and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BS in Nursing. I work at Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC in Cardiac Surgery. Getting home to my comfy cottage in the woods, on the creek is the best! I am a single, empty-nester with bedrooms to spare.
