Great American Eclipse Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for the Great American Eclipse. The place is wonderful, we loved everything about it. Walked down the street to a park and had a great view, the restaurants and people are also great.

Would stay again, five stars!

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is very quaint and minimalistic. The decor allows for a comfortable stay while still obtaining the experience of the history behind the structure. The location is perfect to walk to nearby shops and restaurants, as well as a convenient to drive to nearby plantations, piers, and gardens.
