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.

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.

The rustic surroundings were great, very peaceful. Even saw a wild turkey.
Great area and property. We loved our stay. The surroundings were very peaceful and was a short drive to Charleston.
What a charming and wonderful place!
I won't be able to adequately describe how much we loved it here. There is an energy of happiness here. Have you ever walked into a place and you could either feel the negative or positive energy? In this place, you can tell that this house has been inhabited by people who love each other. It was so peaceful. For us, it was great not to have any TV. The place is as described: things are older and it isn't a luxury experience, but everything is very clean, in good repair, and comfortable. Everything one needs for a comfortable stay is there. I think the weather or season was off for hearing and seeing frogs, but we were awakened each day by the sound of birds singing. It was just refreshing to the soul. Communication with the owners was fabulous. I can hardly wait to return here. My teenage daughter got teary-eyed when it was time to leave. Thank you, Dan and Maria, for such a fabulous experience!
as advertised, lots of wildlife and relaxation. close to attractions and good food, hard to beat.
Fun for our family
We really enjoyed our stay. The yard and the surrounding land is beautiful, we really liked seeing deer everyday! It is also an easy 30 minute drive to downtown. The house is a great deal and was very clean.
Clean and comfortable
The house was bright and clean. We enjoyed the serenity of the area and all of the wildlife around the property. Most of the things we visited the area to do were within 10 miles of the house, so the location was perfect.
Wonderful Carolina Lowland Experience.
If you like your stay served with a slice of unique, Frog Hollow is a one-of-a-kind place to stay. The quaint, clean home offers a wonderful respite after a hard travel day! Just walk out your door onto the deck and experience the choir of birds, frogs and other critters singing. Wander into the large back yard and cosy up on the lovely hammock with a glass of "sweet tea" in hand. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked, and the hosts were a dream to work with. We give this location an A+!
Wow Ireena - are you a travel writer? I'm so glad you enjoyed Frog Hollow the way we do. When Maria and I get to visit we sometimes spend the weekend just lounging in the hammock, reading in the shade and sitting by the fire taking in the milky way - we don't even leave the property. I love it when our guests have that same experience.
I see that you are a photographer. Do you have a website where I can see photos from your Lowcountry travels?
These activities are in a half hour drive - not 15 minute.
