Property description

Are you looking for a unique yet modern getaway as an alternative to a hotel? The Cookhouse suite is the perfect retreat for any occasion. Your hosts previously operated a seasonal inn in a restored 1760 country house in West Cork, Ireland.

The Cookhouse is a romantic and elegant option located in Charleston’s Garden District near Wragg Mall and its live oaks and fountain, the Charleston Museum, the Visitors’ Center, Marion Square’s Saturday Farmers’ and Crafts Market, two historic mansions open to the public (the Aiken-Rhett and Joseph Manigault Houses), the College of Charleston, the Charleston School of Law, and the nationally-recognized cuisine/entertainment district on Upper King. Within walking distance (or by free trolley) are the King Street shopping area and antiques district, The Market, and several other historic districts.

The spacious professionally-decorated Cookhouse unit accommodates up to four people. The unit has a queen reproduction historic rice bed, two large fireplaces (the original kitchen and laundry rooms to the main house), accent antiques, a spacious bathroom with marble-tiled shower, and a fully-equipped kitchen/sitting room with eating area and full-sized sofa bed. The Cookhouse boasts a professionally-designed patio and garden and has off-street parking for 1-2 cars.

Charleston is full of history, charm and wonderful hospitality. The Cookhouse allows you easy access to beaches (15 minutes), historic river plantations (20 minutes), the aquarium, excellent, diverse cuisine at different price levels, and allows you to just relax, read, nibble, and imbibe your favorite beverages in the shared garden.

Illustrated in Bernard Herman’s Townhouse: Architecture and Material Life in the Early American City 1780-1830 (2005), the Cookhouse was recently tastefully restored following the award-winning restoration of the main John Robinson House, a historically significant Federal double house (1814) constructed by the wealthy merchant who later built the adjacent urban plantation now known as the Aiken-Rhett House. There is an interesting article on the Cookhouse restoration in Period Homes magazine (see link below).
