About Matt Eldridge

I was born in Charleston. After graduating from The College of Charleston, I left Charleston, traveling and working at several resorts along the way. After two years and living in several different states, I realized what a special place Charleston was and decided to return home.

I took over as Innkeeper in 2012 after a successful career in sales and have loved it ever since. The best part of what I do is having the privilege to meet many of our guests who have traveled from places near & far to enjoy the city I love.

Matt Eldridge purchased this condo in 2007

Why Matt Eldridge chose Charleston

We love the Cannonborough-Elliotborough Neighborhood, which is located just west of Upper-King Street in Downtown Charleston. We purchased the property in 2007 as an opportunity to carefully renovate a unique Charleston home; bringing it up-to-date, while restoring it to it's original glory. It's been fun to be part of all the exciting changes that have taken place in the area over the years

.

What makes this condo unique

While extensive renovation of the property was completed in 2008, we worked hard to preserve the original character that gives it historic significance. We added modern conveniences, such as marble countertops, custom cabinetry throughout, new appliances in the kitchen, laundry facilities, upgraded electric, plumbing, and central heat & air. We carefully restored hard-wood floors, repaired crown molding and the diamond-grid windows. All of this allows our guests to stay in comfort in a property that has been part of Charleston since 1910.

The Rutledge Avenue Inn is owner-operated.

The one bedroom rental

  • 5 of 5

The updated one bedroom spacious rental was updated with top quality appliances and beautifully furnished. It was located within walking distance to the heart of downtown. Definitely would rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at The Rutledge Avenue Inn and taking the time to leave a review. The sofa-bed has been replaced since you stayed in October 2016. However, no sofa-bed will ever offer the comfort of a standard bed; they are not for everyone. I do not recommend sofa-beds for adults who will be staying more than a few days. Ultimately, it is up for the traveler to decide prior to booking. Thank you again for visiting. Best wishes...

First class place in first class neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and well appointed a 3 or 4 block walk to King Street, we couldn't ask for more. Charleston is a wonderful place to visit and the Rutledge Inn made it even better.
