The historic Sarah Clifford Guest House is located within Charleston's downtown historic district and has been transformed into a luxurious 2000 sq. ft. home with high end modern conveniences without losing its historic character. Light-filled, uncluttered and clean, the Sarah Clifford Guest House is the perfect place for a peaceful, private retreat within just a few blocks of the best restaurants, performance venues, historic homes, museums and shopping in downtown Charleston.

Four guests (our maximum) will find lots of space to enjoy time together (or reading off by oneself) on the first floor of the Guest House. There is a large living room with a flat screen TV, a sunroom, an outdoor patio and a cozy study that also has a large flat screen TV. Along with a beautiful chef's kitchen, a powder room is located on the first floor.

The second floor has two private bedrooms, each with its own private bath. The master bedroom has a King bed, a flat screen TV and an adjoining private master bath with a large walk-in shower and double sinks. The second bedroom, at the opposite end of the house, has a Queen sized bed and an adjoining private bathroom with a tub/shower and double sinks.

Wonderful Charleston Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Two couples spent three nights in this fabulous cottage on Charlotte Street. It is gorgeous, immaculate, and has everything a guest could desire right down to farm fresh eggs in the refrigerator. Every detail has been carefully thought out and it all was so wonderful we hardly wanted to leave though we were there for the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) so did make an effort to attend at least some of the events! The location is perfect as it is a lovely residential area and easy to walk everywhere. Thank you so much Ann and Fred for an excellent visit!

Lovely home, and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Ann and Fred were perfect hosts. They were available, but allowed us complete privacy. Not only was the carriage house beautifully restored, in an excellent location, they had all of the small details/extras prepared for our arrival. I would absolutely recommend this property to my family and friends. Cheers!

Charleston's Best

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic, scrupulously clean guest house that is well situated for accessing all that Charleston has to offer. The incredible restaurants and bars of Upper King Street are just blocks away, and the city's famous Battery, City Market and East Bay attractions are within a 20-minute stroll.

The home itself is stunning: stylish rooms, an amazing kitchen with everything you could need, plush beds, beautiful bathrooms, all surrounded by restful gardens redolent with the scent of Confederate Jasmin. The owners, Ann and Fred, are terrific. They are super friendly, quick to respond to text or email inquiries, and go out of their way to provide the best possible experience for their guests. (For example, my twin sister and I were in Charleston to celebrate our birthday, and Ann and Fred surprised us with a lovely bottle of Rose while we were dining at The Macintosh one evening--so thoughtful!)

Our family always stays in HomeAway or AirBnB-type rentals when we travel, and this Charleston home is, hands down, the best house we've ever stayed in. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Elegant and modern- with the most gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our stay here- So much so that we ended up extending our visit! The home is impeccable and Ann and Fred attended to every detail. The location is perfect for exploring Charleston. We rented bikes and made our way around the city each day, cooking at night and enjoying meals on the garden patio or walking to a restaurant. Our hosts left no detail unattended to and the amenities were divine. This is a lovely getaway for anyone hoping to see this beautiful city in style.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Sara Clifford Guest House for a long weekend in Charleston. Ann and Fred could not have been more gracious and informative. This cottage is very well appointed and the beds are amazingly comfortable! We were in the perfect location for the Charleston Music Hall, where we saw a great concert, and so many outstanding restaurants. In fact, once we arrived we never got back into our car because everything we wanted to do was within easy walking distance! Thank you for making our weekend so relaxing. (Can't wait to see what you do with the pink house)

Charming Charleston getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy in the Sarah Clifford guest cottage. We were pleased that the cottage was even nicer than the pictures. The owners provided all the amenities we needed-it felt like home. The cottage was also within walking distance to all the activities we wanted to do in Charleston, shopping, dining, etc. I highly recommend this property!
