The Cottages on Charleston Harbor | Family Getaway

Last year before school started we took a weekend getaway to Charleston and we had such an amazing time we decided to do it again.

The Cottages on Charleston Harbor 

We stayed at Hotel Indigo last year which was perfect but this year we decided to have a different experience and tried out The Cottages on Charleston Harbor. 

The Cottages

Brightest Star 

Our adorable pink cottage, Brightest Star was a dream! Decorated in coastal decor throughout with vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows. 

The Cottages

The cottage was spacious with two bedrooms and three full bathrooms, having two tween girls you can never have too many bathrooms! A king bed in the master bedroom and two double beds in the second bedroom. The girls each had their own bed but you could easily sleep six making the cottages perfect for a couples getaway or a girl’s weekend!

Another huge perk is the well-equipped kitchen! Although we didn’t utilize it as much as we would if we stayed for a few more days it was nice to have the option to cook if we wanted to!

The Cottages

I spent most of my time on the huge screened porch. Furnished with rocking chairs, a hammock, a full table, and chairs made this the perfect place to enjoy the gorgeous, unobstructed, harbor views. The sunrises were gorgeous and a perfect excuse to wake up early, even on vacation! 

Close Proximity to Charleston

The Cottages on Charleston Harbor are located just minutes from downtown Charleston. We didn’t even leave the cottage except to grab dinner, but if you want to you can readily access all that Charleston has to offer! 


We enjoyed the onsite pool and hot tub. The pool is beautifully set around palm trees and offers plenty of seating. The girls loved the use of the beach cruisers to ride around and explore. The deluxe breakfast was delicious, as well as the snacks and refreshments throughout the day. 

With only 10, two-bedroom cottages this very well may be one of Charleston’s best-kept secrets. The secluded location, gorgeous decor, and spacious floor plans make me want to schedule another trip as soon as possible!

A huge thank you to The Cottages on Charleston Harbor for hosting us. Thank you for your generosity. We can’t wait to return! As always, all opinions are my own.
