OVERVIEW of the Cottages on Charleston Harbor
One of the fun things about what we do is finding those undiscovered places that didn’t show up in any of our research. Such is the case of the marvelous Cottages on Charleston Harbor in Mt. Pleasant, SC just over the bridge from Charleston. Perfect accommodations for couples or families traveling together.
THE ROOMS at the Cottages on Charleston Harbor
Cottage interiors are bright and crisp with white clapboard walls offset by dark walnut tables, mirrors and an entertainment center. The furniture has a kind of Pottery Barn look with a pale green couch and leather club chairs and ottomon. The floors are polished wide plank pine covered with beautiful woven area rugs and plantation shutters filter out the early morning light. A plasma TV tops a gas fireplace and the entertainment center houses a DVD player, DVD’s, a Bose sound system and books from local writers.
The full kitchen has dark green walls that contrast wonderfully with white cabinetry and top-of-the line white appliances. Williams Sonoma cookware, tea and coffee, bottled water and a welcome basket of cheese and crackers were just some of the nice touches.
The Master was decorated in pale yellow with blues and greens, had a 4 poster iron bed sheer curtains surrounding it. The furniture was a casual rattan (ala Tommy Bahama). The other bedroom, also done in pale colors had two full size beds and its own bath as well. The beds are luxurious pillowtops with high count linens and embroidered with a “B”. Bathrooms are large, equipped with Molton Brown toiletries, Frette robes and towels. The Master also has a jacuzzi for two.
The resort has a beautiful clubhouse overlooking the pool and heated spa and is available just to relax or for private functions. Guests have access to the adjacent Patriot’s Point Links or the Arnold Palmer designed RiverTowne Golf Club, named South Carolina Course of the Year. There are old time Schwinn bikes for a little exercise, Adirondack chairs on the small sandy beach for daydreaming and a BBQ if the cooking urge sneaks up on you.
THE SERVICE at the Cottages on Charleston Harbor
In the evening a card is left in the cottage to fill out for the complimentary continental breakfast, which was delicious and delivered promptly at the time we specified, just another indication of a high level of service.
Charleston is just a few minutes over the bridge by car or there is a water taxi at the pier next door that will take you downtown.
