After living downtown for quite some years, I decided to stay in Mt. Pleasant while I completed a summer internship on Daniel's Island. I could not have asked for a better stay! Susan and her family are all so nice and friendly, always making sure everything was okay but also giving the proper amount of space. The place and neighborhood were both gorgeous and incredibly safe! It was the perfect distance from everything. I could get to work on DI in 15 minutes, get to Sullivan's in 15 minutes, and downtown in 15 minutes or less. Plus, I could walk to Collective Coffee, one of my favorite coffee shops in the area. My only complaint would be that the wifi was kind of slow, but I had an ethernet cable with me for when I needed my laptop which sped things up. Although, I barely even used my computer the 3 months I stayed, because it's impossible to stay inside when that neighborhood and creek, right behind the place, are so incredible. I would definitely stay here again!
The Carriage House and the neighborhood were beautiful and made this a special place to be. The house had everything needed to be comfortable and
feel as if we were at home. It was only steps from a wonderful walking path along the Hobcaw Creek and from the docks where we watched the wildlife and the boaters. The neighborhood of I'on was fun to walk around in, also. The location is only 10 minutes from downtown Charleston and 10 min to the beach and we took advantage of both of these areas as well as many other things in the Charleston area. Susan was a gracious host and was able to answer questions on restaurants and other favorite spots in the area. Even after a month, I feel as if I need to go back to do all the things we didn't have time to fit in.
We will definitely try to stay at the Carriage House again! Thank you, Susan and family, for your hospitality!
We loved our stay. The owners pay attention to detail and are a wonderful resource. We found the accommodations very suited to our style. The location is perfect for walking, shopping, sightseeing, biking, and relaxing by the creek. We loved having the bikes available to enjoy the neighbourhood. We would recommend this Carriage Home to our friends.
From the moment we pulled into the I'on community and up to the house, we knew it was going to be a fantastic week! The carriage house is set above the garage with winding steps leading up to the balcony and entrance. From the balcony, you have views of the quiet Hobcaw Creek and walking paths. Inside, the house is tastefully decorated and spacious. The rental came with a golf cart, two paddle boards and two bicycles. We LOVED the golf cart and would drive it to the restaurants nearby. (Square Onion and O'Brions were our favorites!)
Steps away from the house is a 4 mile trail that encompasses the marsh/creek areas. The trails were stunning and flat- which were great for running and walking. The shaded paths made it a bit more bearable for exercising in August.
We were visiting Mount Pleasant for a wedding in the I'on community. We were stunned to find out that the carriage house is located directly next to the club! This made it so much easier and more pleasant than having to worry about transportation. The club ends all of its events by 10:00pm so noise was/is never a problem.
We were also fortunate to be able to meet the owners and thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them! The provided excellent suggestions as it relates to dining, attractions, and local flair.
We would book this carriage house again in a heartbeat! Looking forward to going back again next year!
We had a lovely stay here! The location was great (just a 10-15 min drive from downtown Charleston) and the I'On neighborhood was really wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed long walks and runs on the trail that is accessible right behind the carriage house. While we didn't get to take advantage of them, we loved having the bikes and stand up paddle boards available for our use. The carriage house is very nice on the inside and Susan was very accommodating. Would definitely return!
My husband and I were in Charleston on business. The comfort, attention to detail, kindness of the owner was amazing! The walking paths along the water were great to come home to along with our little balcony where we enjoyed wine and the sunsets. We will definitely stay again!
