GOOD TO KNOW

 

  • The summer is very hot and humid. It’s better to plan your trip during autumn and spring.
  • An option for a hotel in Charleston would be the Wentworth mansion, a 5-star hotel.
  • We would go back for one week and would rent a house. It is easy to get there. People are nice and welcoming.
  • Breakfast served is average. It’s better to make your own breakfast. Trader Joes & Whole food were at 5 min from the cottage. 
  • This is a nice trip to do with other families. You can rent up to 10 cottages!!
