Take in beautiful waterfront vistas that include views of Fort Sumter, Sullivan's Island and downtown Charleston when you stay in one of our nine ‘Harbor front Cottages.' With the incredible views, relaxing rocking chairs, and a Pawley's hammock many guests find it hard to leave the relaxation of their private waterfront porch.

The Cottages on Charleston Harbor are located only a short 5 minute drive from downtown Charleston, South Carolina. The Cottages on Charleston Harbor are perched at the tip of Patriots Point Peninsula near Waterfront Park, and the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum featuring the USS York Town. Buy a ticket for a tour or simply take our beach cruisers for a bike ride and check out the sights.   

Outside of the beautiful waterfront views, convenient access to downtown Charleston, and luxurious space, guests also enjoy daily housekeeping, a delicious continental breakfast, afternoon snacks in the clubhouse, beach cruisers, free parking and outstanding southern hospitality. Enjoy the comfortable space of a private vacation rental cottage with the services and amenities of a hotel.
