Beautiful, charming property that will help you make the most of your Charleston visit!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at the Carriage House over the Christmas holiday and had an absolutely wonderful time. The property is in a great location and in walking distance of many restaurants. It is in the heart of so much but also private and quiet. There were four of us staying and we had plenty of room -- we enjoyed the living area, comfortable sofa and chairs -- the beds as well were comfortable, and everything including the kitchen was so well-maintained and clean. I appreciate how attentive the owners are -- such generous hospitality. I would recommend this property to those visiting the city in a heart beat.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This property met all of our expectations and then some. The accommodations are comfortable and attractive. Right in the middle of town, we could walk everywhere - to attractions, good restaurants and nightlife. Our hostess was informative and helpful. A wonderful place to spend a memorable visit! We would return in a heartbeat!

A Little Piece of Heaven in Charleston!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations and the hospitality we were met with when we arrived at this lovely Carriage House. Ruthie greeted us and offered some much needed tips on restaurants and local points of interest. The Carriage House is absolutely breathtaking, the location is perfect and all the comforts of home are right at your fingertips. This great location allows you to just park your car in your private parking space, and enjoy being able to walk everywhere in this beautiful city. Thank you to the Ravenel family for a birthday celebration I will never forget. We look forward to returning to Charleston and your lovely home in the very near future!

Exceeded expectations - Staying here made us feel like locals

  • 5 of 5

2 night get-away for our wedding anniversary. First time to Charleston and the Carriage House was great. Top 3 favorites of staying here were: Location, Decor and Privacy. Meghan greeted and welcomed us upon arrival. Very comfortable bedding and no noise or safety issues from neighboring Washington Park. Staying here felt like we were locals. Recommendations for food, include: Poogan's Smokehouse (ribs and pork belly), Cru Cafe (friend green tomatoes and Westbrook One Claw brew), SNOB and Cafe Framboise for crepes. If you do a carriage ride, we recommend Old South and try and get "Ian" for the tour guide. He was very good.

Fantastic location in the heart of Downtown Charleston. One door away from the Four Corners of Law. Walk to everything including gourmet restaurants, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, theatre venues, nightlife, and much more! The PERFECT location for Spoleto USA and other arts events and festivals. Live the downtown lifestyle in this historic part of the old walled city!
