We had family Thanksgiving at the Ashley River House, and it very much met our expectations. The house was clean and well maintained, with superb views across the Ashley River toward Charleston. It was well worth getting up before sunrise to watch the sun come up to the east -- whether clear, foggy, or even cloudy (the river turned to silver). The house is very convenient to Charleston but without the noise and traffic of the city. Nearby areas of interest include Charles Towne Landing (and its zoo) and other big houses and gardens along the south side of the river. Manny's Mediterranean Grill up the road has good food, and there are other less expensive restaurants nearby (Charleston itself is very overpriced).The neighborhood was quiet with numerous cats (although none visited us). We had everything we needed, but the owner might consider adding some wine glasses and upgrading the cable to include more choices [no ESPN, for example]. Heating etc. worked fine [it was cold over Thanksgiving, and we have had problems with the utilities on occasion renting other houses in South Carolina]. Check out the shower head that changes colors with water temperature! We would definitely recommend this house, and will consider it again should we decide on an extended stay in the Charleston area with family.
