Car: Recommended

Located in the heart of fun and good times. Gator Cottage is a 6 minute walk just 2 blocks from the beach. There are bike/walk paths to explore around the resort. There are restaurants and shops in the area along with sports teams seasonally to enjoy. The River Dogs baseball; the Charleston Battery soccer; the Stingrays hockey teams as well as the local college teams. Downtown historic Charleston is a great day trip, you can drive to Patriots Point and even take a water taxi across the harbor for added interest.

Gator Cottage is nestled at the top of a quiet cul-de -sac with the backyard views rivaling National Geographic at times. An open concept home with 180* beautiful views morning afternoon and sunset. Find us on Facebook

About the owner: Sharing paradise just around the corner--If anything is needed assistance isn't far away.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Village:
We fell in love.....The sanctuary feel is compared to none and the views are incredible. Paradise is indeed found here. We look forward to having you visit.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
So close to the beach/and action of the Village or Boardwalk if you desire--yet feels so private with water views and nature playing out all day long.
