Charleston cottage description

The Cookhouse is a romantic and elegant option located in Charleston’s Garden District near Wragg Mall and its live oaks, the Charleston Museum, the Visitors’ Center, Marion Square’s Farmers’ and Craft Market, two historic mansions open to the public (the Aiken-Rhett and Joseph Manigault Houses), the College of Charleston and 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, including the Battery and other South of Broad neighborhoods.

Are you looking for the perfect historical yet modern getaway for a wedding party, small retreat, perhaps a executive's alternative to a mundane hotel? The Cookhouse is the perfect retreat for any occasion. The owners are not new to the hospitality business. They previously operated a 1760 country inn in West Cork, Ireland, for over twenty years.

The spacious professionally-decorated Cookhouse accommodates up to eight persons. Each bedroom has a queen reproduction historic bed (one has a rice bed, the other a canopied four poster). The Cookhouse is furnished with accent antiques, has spacious bathrooms with marble-tiled showers, and has 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 three cars.

Charleston is full of history, charm and wonderful hospitality. Recently, it was recognized as the top tourist venue in the United States and one of only two United States venues in the top twenty globally. The Cookhouse allows you easy access to nearby beaches (twenty minutes), historic river plantations (twenty-five minutes), the aquarium, excellent, diverse cuisine, or allows you to just relax, read, nibble and imbibe your favorite beverages in the garden.

Why stay in a hotel or motel when you can absorb Charleston history and ambiance by staying in the historic Cookhouse? 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.
