    Beautifully unique hotel and wedding venue!

    We stayed at the Cottages for our intimate wedding ceremony and dinner and don’t regret a thing!

    The venue is gorgeous – you have views of both the marsh and harbor, and sometimes have a small beach when the tide is out! Lisa and her team did a phenomenal job prepping the lawn area to make sure our day was picture perfect. The cottages themselves are timelessly homey while still providing that elevated “hotel” experience (I would absolutely recommending stay here over a beach house if I were visiting Charleston!). Being able to stay at our wedding venue location made our entire wedding party more relaxed and turned the wedding from just a one-day-event into a vacation.

    Note – they have two separate cottage lawns, so this venue can absolutely support bigger weddings if necessary, but we opted for the smaller of the two!

    Speaking as a local - this is truly a unique venue that provides an ambiance that you cannot get anywhere else in Charleston, and we’re so happy we had our wedding here.

    My daughter's wedding was held at The Cottages of Charleston Harbor. It was just beautiful! We have had so many compliments on the wedding, and the staff was extremely helpful. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting.

    We chose the Cottages for our wedding venue because of the beautiful views and the adorable cottages. It was important to have our family all in one area so we rented out all 10 cottages to make our wedding a private event. We did the ceremony outside in front of Cottages 4,5,&6 and then the reception beside Cottage 1. The locations was perfect, the staff felt like family, and my dream wedding became a reality thanks to this venue!
