The Cottages on Charleston Harbor – Southern Comfort Defined

This gorgeous getaway destination made the list of Southern Living’s Best Places to Stay, and from the moment you step onto the grounds, it’s easy to see why. Located on Charleston Harbor, The Cottages offers ten cottages with two bedrooms, three bathrooms, full kitchen, living room, and screened-in porch. It’s a home away from home with all the southern feels. From the moment we arrived, my family felt completely at home, even though we were hundreds of miles away from the house.

A home away from home with a view, I might add!

The drive to our cottage was one beautiful view after another, and when we stepped out of the vehicle, we were able to take in a view of the harbor that was filled with dune grass, gorgeous water, and skyline full of nature’s beauty.

Then we stepped into our cottage.

Wow. You guys. Wow.

Cottage is the perfect word for these beautiful little homes. Stepping into our Cottage at The Cottages on Charleston Harbor was like stepping into a warm, cozy southern hug. It was so nice. We stepped in and were greeted with lovely, cozy furniture, high ceilings, and glowing hardwood floor. The kitchen and bathroom were nicely updated while still keeping that cottage feel.

Even our porch was screened in to keep out the bugs! They thought of everything, including the hammock.
