The best of both worlds... a peaceful respite just eight minutes from historic Charleston. Walk to Sunrise Park. Visit Folly Beach. Bicycle oak and azalea lined avenues. Relax on the front porch. Come for a night or stay for a week... the cottage is yours!

The space

Our space is unique in that it is very private, yet convenient to everything Charleston has to offer. You will enjoy the quiet neighborhood and the Lowcountry ambience. We will provide a welcoming drink and an assortment of breakfast items for you to enjoy during your stay. In addition, the interior of this charming cottage is done in a "country modern" kind of style. Wooden ceilings, simple trim, slow moving fans, granite countertops, and interesting art and artifacts comprise the decor. It is warm and comfortable.

Guest access

Bicycles, a serene outdoor setting, Sunrise Park which overlooks Charleston Harbor (1/2 mile), convenience store (1/2 mile), full grocery store (1.5 miles), outdoor shower, local shops and theater, and many restaurant options. Charleston has so much to offer and the Private Lowcountry Cottage is the ideal jumping off spot to enjoy it all.

Interaction with guests

Our home is adjacent to the cottage, and we are available for assistance, questions, or conversation. In general, however, we will allow interaction with guests to be dictated by guests. But we are passionate about Charleston and love to share our knowledge of all it has to offer. We enjoy spending time with guests and exchanging stories and experiences. That's a part of the airbnb experience!

This cottage was the perfect spot for our weekend getaway... clean, bright, and welcoming with great amenities. Conveniently located- fairly easy to get ubers to a from downtown. Short drive to Folley and just a great place to stay. Nan was quick to reply and communicate. Next time we come to Charleston, we absolutely will try to stay here again!!!

The cottage is adorable. It was the perfect space for our family. Check-in was super easy. Nan and Mark were great at communication. The toilet was broken, and Mark fixed it ASAP. We would stay here again!

What a wonderful place to stay. So charming and sweet and quiet, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but just close enough to go out for lunch or dinner. We had a lovely retreat and Nan and Mark were the perfect host all the way from leaving us wine and milk in the fridge to giving us recommendations for places to walk and run. We will come back and highly recommend this Charleston getaway.

Wow! Nan and Mark's cottage is beautiful! Hosts communicated quickly and happily accommodated our request to add 2 guests. The cottage was clean and included nice touches such as fresh flowers on the table and in the bedroom. Nan and Mark provided guides and ideas for things to do and places to visit while in Charleston. Looking forward to our next visit!

This place when booking looked nice once I got there it exceeded all my expectations. The house is so cute and the property is so well maintained. When I was looking on the map of where it is located it looked sort of in the middle of nowhere but there are lots of houses near by it’s a beautiful neighborhood and close to a gas station and grocery store with a Starbucks. I didn’t get the chance to meet Nan but I met her husband Mark who was incredibly welcoming. They have two cats that wander between their house and the Airbnb they are really friendly and we spent several mornings on the porch with their tabby cat. The area is pretty wooded and the house where Nan and Mark live is set back a ways so service was very limited but that only helped me focus more on my visit than sitting on my phone. I was in town visiting family and I will most definitely consider staying here when I come to visit again.

Nan and Mark’s Lowcountry cottage was absolutely adorable! It was so clean and cozy and very close to everything! We had a chance to meet the hosts during our busy stay - they were so sweet and we wish we had more time to talk with them! We will definitely be back!

This place is exactly what we hoped. Close to everything, but out of the city. We enjoyed morning coffee on the front porch, beds were comfortable, and the place was clean. The host stopped by when we first arrived and was very friendly. Oher than that we didn't see them, which was ok cause the place was great and we didn't need anything. We would highly recommended this place to anyone visiting the Charleston area.
