Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful week at the Carriage House while we explored historic Charleston and loved everything about it—perfect location, attractively furnished interior, beautiful outdoor sitting area, and comfortable beds with lovely linens. Ruthie provides invaluable information about the best restaurants, walks and activities in the area which enhanced our overall experience immeasurably. We cannot imagine ever finding a better place to stay in Charleston—it is simply the best!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at the Ravenel's carriage house, by far the best location in Charleston. The location is a short walk to hundreds of activities, yet tucked off Broad Street in a quiet courtyard. If you are looking for a safe, convenient location for a your family or a group of friends, this is the perfect spot.

Wow this house will not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Located amidst historically interesting architecture the Carriage House was the perfect place to stay for our quick visit. Ruthie could not have been a better hostess always a text or phone call away when we had a question. We hoped it would be available next month again but disappointed it was not. If you are lucky enough to book this house my advice don’t hesitate! Thanks Ruthie!

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! Close proximity to everything in Downtown Charleston! The size of the common space was great and the outdoor brick paver patio was an added bonus. The home was very clean and beds were extremely comfortable. Will definitely stay again on our next trip.

Excellent location & very accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

My family & I traveled for a wedding. Minus the bad mosquitos in the vicinity (which were likely a direct result of the bad humidity that weekend), the accommodations couldn't have been any better. My family loved the location & charm of the carriage house, my son loved playing in the adjacent park & watching the horse carriages going by, and we just enjoyed the peace & quiet away from the activities of the wedding weekend. The owners lived on the front of the property and were exceptionally friendly and ensured that we were taken care of. Highly recommend.

Car: not necessary

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!
