Are you looking for a unique yet modern hideaway as an alternative to a hotel? The entirely-licensed (City of Charleston Permit # OP2018-00221. Cookhouse suite is the ideal getaway for any occasion. Your hosts previously operated a seasonal inn in a restored 1760 country home in West Cork, Ireland.
The Cookhouse is a charming and opulent option located in Charleston’s Garden District near Wragg Mall and its live oaks and fountain, the Charleston Museum, the Visitors’ Center, Marion Square’s Saturday Farmers’ and Crafts Market, two historic mansions open to the public (the Aiken-Rhett and Joseph Manigault Houses), the College of Charleston, the Charleston School of Law, and the nationally-recognized cuisine/entertainment district on Upper King. Within walking distance (or by complimentary trolley) are the King Street shopping area and antiques district, The Market, and numerous other historic districts.
The roomy professionally-decorated Cookhouse unit accommodates up to four people. The unit has a queen reproduction historic rice bed, two sizable fireplaces (the original kitchen and laundry rooms to the main home), accent antiques, a cavernous bathroom with granite-tiled shower, and a completely-equipped kitchen/sitting room with eating area and full-sized couch bed. The Cookhouse features a professionally-designed patio and garden and has off-street parking for 1-2 cars.
Charleston is full of history, appeal and outstanding hospitality. The Cookhouse accepts you simple access to beaches (15 mins.), historic river plantations (20 mins.), the aquarium, charming, diverse cuisine at different price levels, and accepts you to just relax, read, nibble, and imbibe your favorite beverages in the shared garden.
Illustrated in Bernard Herman’s Townhouse: Architecture and Material Life in the Early American City 1780-1830 (2005), the Cookhouse was newly elegantly restored following the award-winning restoration of the main John Robinson House, a historically significant Federal double home (1814) constructed by the wealthy merchant who later constructed the adjacent urban plantation now known as the Aiken-Rhett House. There is an interesting article with numerous photos on the Cookhouse restoration in Period Homes magazine (Vol. 14, No. 6, Nov. 2013), a copy of which is available in the Cookhouse.

Rental home booking tips and tricks:
Finding your perfect vacation home:
- Reserve your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacation rentals during holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- June, July, and August are the most expensive months along the coast of SC. To find the best value, try changing your family's Charleston area vacation week to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and October offer pleasant temperatures, less crowded beaches, and greatly reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the high season.
- Property managers sometimes offer special rates for veterans and active duty military. Check with your host or property manager to see if special discounts are available for your group.
- Property managers often offer their guests an option to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for additional information.
- Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitors guides which include special offers, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.
Use filters to narrow your rental search:
- Select a group leader, choose your vacation week, and select a spending budget.
- Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration your family requires. Historic Downtown Cookhouse Apartment in Garden District has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
- Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts is commonly accessible on booking pages. If not, call the host before reserving your rental. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in living rooms. You'll need to work out what is optimal for your trip.
- Some rentals allow pets, and others do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask your host about pets before booking.
- Looking for specific amenities? Most websites include search filters for amenities. Use these to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
- Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental
Advice for a great stay:
- Be sure you get the host's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental home.
- Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, elevator or kitchen appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call prevents a lot of concerns.
- Lock your rental while you're out. Keep your property safe!
- Make a record of any issues with the property during check in, and immediately e-mail them to the host. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be helpful if there is a dispute.
- Respect the neighborhood. Often times, surrounding homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking policies can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to charter a fishing boat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
- At departure, complete a final walk-through to make sure you haven't leave anything behind. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Please make sure to walk through the rental a final time and scan for damages to contents or the property itself. We suggest inspecting the property with the host whenever possible. If the host is not available, remember to take video and pictures of the rental to record its condition.
- Did your family have a great time? Many rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property manager was fantastic, they would love to hear it. If anything was out of order and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.
