About the Property

Secluded 2 bedroom / 1 bath home

Our little house is the perfect retreat to stage your Charleston and Lowcountry adventures. 20 minutes from Downtown, Kiawah and the historic plantations, and 45 minutes from the ACE basin. Frog Hollow offers true Old South charm in a private wooded setting.

The house is 70 years old and well kept with a screened front porch and huge back deck with a gas grill. There is a fire pit in the back yard. Recently renovated including new linens to make your stay very comfortable. No TV guarantees that you will be able to unplug and truly relax, but internet and cell service is strong so you can connect if you must. Grocery and pharmacy are 10 minutes away.

Beds: 2 full beds and a futon.

Kitchen has all your basic needs.

Frog Hollow is a tiny house in the woods nearly at the end of a private dirt road. The house takes its name from the cacophony of froggy love songs that fill the night air. Fall asleep to a concert of frogs, whip-poor-wills, barred owls and cicadas - wake up to songbirds greeting the day.

The house was built by Graham Runion, a member of the family that has owned and farmed the property for generations. The main house, built in the 1920s when the original farmhouse burned down, can be glimpsed to your left as you come down the drive. No longer farmed, the property has reverted to pine and live oak forest. The property is visited by deer, bobcat and a wide variety of songbirds. Wild turkey, hawks, painted bunting, warblers, towhees and ibis are just a few of the species that can be seen from the deck. You may even spot the wild peacock strutting in the nearby forest with his harem of turkey hens.

Its the perfect place for nature lovers, kayakers and boaters, with Stono River access via Limehouse landing 5 minutes down the road, a beautiful ride to Cherry Point landing and North Edisto access, and a short drive to the ACE basin. Frog Hollow is truly a rare and special place, but its not for everyone. If you want TV, a gourmet kitchen and every amenity, this may not be the place for you. If you want to get away from it all, we've got what you need.
