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 Radcliffeborough

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.

                                                      Bruce B.Groton Long Point, Ct

                                                      We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this one is the best we’ve experienced. It was super clean, beautifully decorated, very well supplied with all one could ask for, and the location was an easy stroll to the fabulous food scene and historic downtown. Matt, the owner, knows how to manage a property to provide his guests with maximum enjoyment. He’s there for you and offers great suggestions re the local scene. Thank you, Matt! Bruce B

                                                      Lovely gem in a convenient location

                                                      CATHIE c.

                                                      This was our third stay, and it did not disappoint. The place was immaculate, the kitchen well-equipped, and the living room comfortable and spacious, all while retaining the historic features of this lovely home.

                                                      Perfect location!!

                                                      Dustin M.Hartsville, SC

                                                      This condo was perfect for our family of three! The location was so close to all of the shops and food that we love in Charleston! The kitchen was fully stocked and very useful. The only problem we encountered was the bathtub wouldn’t drain but I fixed that and it worked beautifully! We will stay here again! Total hassle free check in and out and we loved the house!!

                                                      Nice apartment

                                                      Thomas H.

                                                      Very well kept and clean apartment in a good location in the historic district.

                                                      Charleston Charm

                                                      Margaret F.St. Michaels, MD

                                                      My husband and I have visited Charleston many times but this is the first time we have stayed in a home in the downtown area (we typically stay on one of the islands). We were very please with the unit and found it to be quite comfortable. The Rutledge Inn has been nicely renovated and has all the charm of a Charleston home. As noted in a few of the reviews the parking is a bit tricky, however you can easily leave your car parked for your entire stay and walk to King Street or even use a taxi service to points of interest that are a bit further away. We will definitely consider the Rutledge Inn for future visits.

                                                      This is Truly a “Home Away”

                                                      John A.

                                                      The pictures were not air brushed, it is as nice as it looks. All of the furnishings were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. The appliances were upscale Bosch and Jenn-Air and marble counters.

                                                      If you have never been to Charleston, parking is at a premium in the historic districts, but is provided here. A friend of mine was staying at a hotel and was paying $17 per day.
