The Cottages on Charleston Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2017

OVERALL 4 out of 5
Staff/Customer Service 5 out of 5 (Kim, Kimber, and Stephen in particular)
Cottage/Facilities 5 out of 5
Breakfast 3 out of 5
Afternoon Snacks 4 out of 5 (very good selection of granola bars and freshly made cookies are a nice touch)

From the moment we arrived, we had wonderful service. Kim and Kimber were especially helpful in assisting us with things like beach towels, printing coupons for Magnolia Plantation, and getting a few beach chairs. If you need anything the front desk was always responsive to our requests.

The cottage is nicely decorated with lots of space and very clean. Please note that the cottages/grounds don't really have a swimming beach, however, you can walk the tiny beach in the morning (low tide) for a great selection of shells.

We made several meals at the cottage and had almost all the things we needed in the kitchen. We were just missing a cookie sheet.

Our cottage (#10) was further away from the hotel so we were not bothered by the music mentioned by the other reviewers. Even if you get cottage #1 the music is over by 9:30 -10 pm (Fri/Sat) so most people should not be bothered.

The breakfast was ok but do not expect much. Cereal, muffins, bagels, and sometimes something hot like eggs, or sausage.

The pool, hot tub and the rest of the grounds were nicely maintained.

Just returning from a great weekend at the Cottages. Don and Kim were great to deal with and very friendly. We were impressed with how clean the cottages were and the pool was nice also. The best thing was the location as you are right on the water across from Fort Sumter, and able to watch cargo ships and cruise liners go by. We will definitely be back to visit this great place!

We loved having your group stay as our cottage guests. We are the perfect location for a
girls weekend, especially with three full baths. This time of year our guest enjoy the pool and cooling harbor breezes. We look forward to seeing you again.

Perfect setting to sit back relax and enjoy the beautiful views from our screened in porch or from the Clubhouse enjoying breakfast. Five friends from grade school and each and everyone of us loved The Cottages. We were in Cottage 5. Small beach area and perfect ! KIM is exceptional. We had our itineraries and she was able to fine tune our scheduling to fit in shopping and lunches. Kim you were a gem when the uber driver couldn't find us. Thank you for making our trip even better.

Room Tip: Cottages 4, 5 or 6. Small beach area. Perfect

I just returned from a 3 night stay at The Cottages. I was there with family for my daughter's wedding in Mt. Pleasant. We stayed in Cottage #7 which was wonderfully situated with an amazing porch view of Fort Sumter and the harbor. One morning we saw dolphins frolicking close by in the water! The cottage was wonderfully laid out and well kept, clean and cozy. It felt like we were visiting someone's "home". Our cottage was also very convenient to the main guesthouse and pool. The staff were gracious, friendly, accommodating and quietly efficient. A shout out to Kim for her exceptional hospitality and yummy breakfast offerings. This property is worth the price and I would definitely return. My only reason for not a full 5 stars? Trouble with our A/C which took a full day to fix. And still, the lowest temperature allowed is 69. I prefer it a bit cooler! Luckily it wasn't super hot and humid! Enjoy this lovely and well designed property, it's quiet and unique.

We chose the Cottages to be away from the busyness of the city and are so glad we did. The cottage was beautiful, well appointed and the view from the screened in porch and behind our cottage was heavenly. We could see Charleston, Fort Sumpter and enjoyed the sail boats on the river. It rained the first three days of our trip, putting a damper on some of our Charleston plans, but the staff kept us busy with great rainy day recommendations. Additionally on the nights we decided to stay in by the fire (in June, no less!) they provided us with board games and we enjoyed some family fun. There were freshly baked cookies, cupcakes and lemon bars each evening, sand toys and wave boards if we decided to go to the beach and everything we needed for the pool once the sun came out. A wonderful breakfast was laid out each morning. We ran into a couple of maintenance issues that Kim and Steve in the office sorted out before we returned from lunch. We can't say enough about the staff (Don and Kim especially!) at the Cottages.

Overall it felt like a hotel with the amenities and privacy of your own home. We loved our week at the Cottages. We liked Charleston but we loved staying here even more.

Our only word of caution: if you stay on a Friday in the summer, check the Party on the Point schedule. Our cottage was next to the stage for the band and we had a front row seat to a loud band until after 10. Not great for small children and kept us from enjoying our final evening there.

Otherwise, perfection.

Thank you for the wonderful review. This year the event you mentioned, Party at the Point, is held only on Fridays, the last Friday in April and four Fridays in May and June. Event time is 5pm - 9pm. And this concert is open to the public. Many of our guests take advantage of the special event. I'l sorry to hear this event created a less than enjoyable experience.
