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 apartment in 2007

Why Matt Eldridge chose Historic Old City

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 apartment 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.

Perfect Charleston Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came in town for a wedding and this was the perfect spot. It was within walking distance to king street and the farmer's market. The place was clean and cozy. It was prefect for a couple. We were able to enjoy the full kitchen for breakfast. We will be back FOR SURE! Love it here. Thanks again Matt for all your help!! 5 stars

Great apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Really loved staying here. Matt was a terrific host, helped early on in recommending a second parking space option, accepted our dachshund for our stay, and was helpful with anything else we needed throughout our time there. The apartment was clean, the building is within walking distance to an in-demand breakfast restaurant, and there are top end appliances and touches throughout the apartment. My wife and I would definitely stay here again.

Awesome place in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with Matt. The unit was exceptionally clean and modern. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, but still a short Uber ride to any of the popular Charleston attractions. Matt was a phenomenal host and quickly answered any questions we had before, during and after our trip. He was extremely flexible and accommodating for the duration of our stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Charleston. I know we will be back for our next trip!
