About this listing
Enjoy my entire home, the dock, creek in quiet solitude. I have 2 outside dogs & 4 hens that will keep you company during your visit in our home. In exchange for that, they will appreciate your feeding them!
My home is a cozy 2 story cottage on the Leadenwah Creek, 19 miles southwest of downtown Charleston, SC. There is 1 bedroom & bath downstairs. Three bedrooms upstairs share a large bath area. All beds are full-sized with 1 being 5 inches longer. Additional sleeping areas are on the porches -- a bed swing on one and a double chaise on another. There is also a window seat where one can sleep. The television is in the living room with 8 channels, including the major networks & Apple TV featuring Netflix. Wireless internet is included. Please visit my other 2 sites "Ruby Ranch - Marsh Bedroom" and "Ruby Ranch - Creek Bedroom" if you are interested in renting 1 or 2 bedrooms instead of the entire house.
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. (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.
Please visit my other two sites - Ruby Ranch Creek Bedroom and Ruby Ranch Marsh Bedroom if you are interested in renting 1 or 2 bedrooms only.
Our guests have the entire home, grounds, dock, hens and canines!
Other Things to Note
We have friendly dogs & 4 hens. All live outside. If you rent my entire home, I would ask you to feed my dogs twice/day.

About the Host, Fran
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.
