The Space

Heal the Spirit & Satisfy the Soul

Come to unwind and leave the troubles of the world behind. Here you can release and relax. Bring family and friends for that great getaway. 

This is a jewel nestled in the countryside, sitting between a stocked freshwater pond and a salt water tidal marsh that hosts an abundance of life.  Enjoy the scenic drive, which will take you just outside of Charleston as you travel along South Carolina’s famous coastal tidal waterways, just moments away from Edisto Beach State Park and Botany Bay Wildlife Reserve.  If you enjoy boating, the boat ramp is right across the Interstate Highway 174 bridge about two miles from the property. 
The House

This quaint home features 2 small sofas and several spaces to sit and recline.  If the weather is cold, there's a cozy, small cast-iron wood burning fireplace to warm the home and the spirit.  The porch and backyard deck are perfect for lounging, especially on warm, southern summer nights. There are 3 furnished bedrooms with a queen bed in the master bedroom, 2 single beds in the second bedroom room, a queen bed in the third bedroom, and there are 2 full baths.  There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room, and a most comfortable, relaxing hammock and single day bed on the screened porch, a magical place during warm summer nights.  

There is a fully functional kitchen with up-to-date appliances and a small laundry room with a washer and dryer for your convenience.  Adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy dining space, a place for early morning cups of coffee while starring off into the distant trees and enjoying the picturesque snapshots of nature beyond the back patio doors. It can also be used for evenings of spirited roundtable discussions after meals.

The Land

The house sits on a lush wooded 2.73 acre site.  Towards the front of the site is a well-kept, small freshwater pond stocked with Bass, Crappie and Sunfish.  Rarely will you have to wish for a bite.   At the rear of the property is a tidal marsh that fills and empties as the seawater from the tidal waterways rises and recedes. If you love birds large and small, this is where you want to be.
The Location

This beautiful retreat is in the city of Hollywood, South Carolina near Edisto Island and Yonges Island.  Down a sculptured oak tree-lined narrow country road, it sits within a private cul-de-sac shared by two other homes.  It is approximately 35 miles from downtown Charleston and the Charleston International Airport .  And about 10 minutes from the Edisto Beach State Park Reserve.  You can enjoy a day at the small shell beach in Botany Bay Wildlife Reserve. Also nearby is Stono Ferry Golf Course, voted in 2011 South Carolina's golf course of the year. The Edisto Island Museum and the Edisto Serpentarium are also located on this wildlife reserve. The reserve features many of the native reptilian wildlife, such as 19 adult American alligators, soft shell and snapping turtles, and a wide array of species of snakes.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great stay at Dorothy Gardens. The house is very comfortable (we were a family of five). Very clean and it had everything we needed, plus vintage video games which the kids loved. Arrival is flexible and host was very helpful. Kids loved the pond in the back! Location is great: short drive to beach in Edisto Island) about 45 minutes to Charleston and 1,5 hrs to Savannah. So there is a lot to do in the area. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet place with lots of nature, but also close enough to cities if you want to do some sightseeing and go to nice restaurants for some wonderful Southern cooking.

  • Dorothy Gardens was a magical place for us...serene, secluded and simple. Mary was extremely helpful and communicative, and even let us move up the trip on short notice! Close to Charleston and various nature preserves, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

  • What can I say. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dorothy Gardens. The grounds are beautiful. We saw a deer near the Marsh, and the pond is really cool. We would definitely stay again.

    Thank you Mary, you are an excellent host, and Dorothy Gardens is fantastic!

  • Mary's Dorothy Gardens home was lovely and in a beautiful setting in the Ace Basin of SC. We're birders, so we were happy with the location being close to Donnelly WMA, Ace Basin NWR, Caw Caw Interpretive Center (our first time there and it was great with the variety of SC coastal habitats!!), and Edisto Beach. It's great to have access to a full kitchen when traveling.

  • Great stay.

  • This is an older home, but very comfortable and well-equipped. It is set in a lovely quiet rural & wooded area between Hollywood & Edisto Island. Deer wander past... It's not total seclusion as there is a family home across the driveway.

    Mary was very helpful when the central heating played up, and the log burner kept the house warm.

    The TV selection is quite limited, and the wifi was reliable but rather slow at times.

    I would recommend this property as good value for money.

  • I rented this space for a group of women to get away from it all. Unfortunately I was not able to attend as I had planned. I understand that the house was quite and secluded, just as described.

    October 2013
  • We had a wonderful weekend at Mary's!
    The house is beautifully hidden, quiet, and comfortable. Screened off porch was perfect for Ruby (greyhound). We can't wait to go back! Thank you, Mary!
