The story of Charleston is the story of rivers—the Cooper and the Ashley. The coming and going at the river ports built this city and in many ways shaped the continent. The city is an intersection of water, road and rail. It’s where captains, conductors, travelers and tradesmen made deals, shared ideas, swapped stories and toasted success. The rivers brought the people together, and that conﬂuence continues to feed Charleston’s culture.
When retreating from the world, life should be taken as it comes, recognizing and appreciating what each moment has to oﬀer. When you walk in our door, feel the breeze of the salty air oﬀ the Cooper and release yourself to comfort. Away from the dense bustle of downtown, a more intimate and personal experience awaits—a retreat built on a foundation of graciousness and generosity.
