Recently renovated including new linens to make your stay very comfortable.

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 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.
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+!
Enjoyed our trip to Frog Hollow immensely. This area for now seems somewhat quiet on Johns Island. Upon unpacking our vehicle, saw a herd of deer and while driving into town would often see flocks of turkey. There is a screened in front porch if you feel like having coffee in the morning and listening to the birds begin for the day. The area is close to a Publix grocery so if you want to stock up on supplies for the kitchen you can be there in 10 -15 mins. There were also restaurants to choose from on Johns Islands that were only about 15 minutes away if you feel like eating out all the time. We didn't get to try out the fire pit or hammock while we were there but those would have been enjoyable as well. It happened to be unseasonably cold while we were there. All in all, had a great time, though, and will remember very positively our stay in Frog Hollow.
It met all of our needs on a short vacation to see family in the Charleston area. It was off the beaten path where you can enjoy the quite and not hear the sound of traffic, but close enough to everything you need. Dan was very honest in what this place does and does not have. Like they said it is not for everyone, but it was for us. We will be back when we visit again.
Really calm and peaceful. Lovely stay for 4!
My husband and I had a lovely time at Frog Hollow. We were delighted the moment we walked in; the house was carefully cared for and obviously valued by the owners. Very clean, very welcoming, and very well-maintained! We enjoyed being in a location that was quiet (unlike some of the houses right on the beaches), but also within easy access of many attractions. In general, the area is fun, but also very fascinating from a historical perspective, too. We enjoyed visiting Fast and French (a little restaurant in Charleston's historic district) while walking the city. Of the beaches we visited, Kiawah was our favorite -- really beautiful and natural. The house would be ideal for a small family, as well as for two couples vacationing together. We'd stay here again without hesitation!
