The Cottages on Charleston Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2010

My husband brought me here for my birthday and we were looking forward to a very quiet and romantic vacation. Next door, at the Charleston Marina, there was lots of noise on the Friday night we were there. Some may call it music, I, who appreciate music that makes sense, thought it was absolute garbage. We had to listen to this loud bombardment of noise till after 10 pm and did not appreciate it al all. We could not even sit in the cottage and watch a movie without hearing the crap emanating from next door.
Do not stay here unless you like lots of noise. We really thought of returning in September for a week but will never return due to the lack of consideration from the staff.

This is a wondefrul way to enjoy Charleston, and yet come back to a very private and luxurious home with a sweeping view of the water from your very own private veranda. The daily breakfast .,along with a delightful afternoon snack are nicely presented and included in the rental price. The private clubhouse and pool are nicely appointed. A great way to enjoy city life and then relax in a low country getaway minutes from Charleston.

The Cottages at Charleston Harbor aka Belvedre Cottage per GPS are truely unique and perfectly beautiful. We were there in April during Race Week. It is a great location to take advantage of watching the boaters from your own private enclosed porch and enjoying the serenity of the location. The hotel next to the cottages hosted the event so evening entertainment was clearly heard. There was construction which could be seen and heard across the lagoon. No alligator sighted while we were there. James and Tony were wonderful, but no one is there after 11 PM so you are on your own if an emergency or other needs arise. There is a hefty resort fee as well. The hot tub was out of commission while we were there and the gas fireplace had been shut off. It is only for ambience so it seems rather small to have turned it off. It was cool and windy so it would have been nice to have use of it. The pool is lovely, but not heated and the water was VERY cold. The morning continental breakfast and afternoon treats are a nice touch. No tea served however, so bring it from your cottage. We enjoyed the Mt. Pleasant area with easy and walkable access to the Yorktown which was truely fascinating. The water taxi takes you to Charleston next to the aquarium. A fun ride via bike/rickshaw to the Waterfront was worth it. From the drop off site we were able to go to Ft. Sumter, also fascinating. However, check the site for pick up because the literature is very confusing. Restaurants to recommend in Mt. Pleasant - Vichery's and Water's Edge both recommendations from Tony and both delicious and great sunset views on Shem Creek. Bottome line, an absolutely lovely site - great wedding venue - but small stuff took away from the total experience, especially when you are charged a RESORT FEE.

I booked my cottage on the internet and was wary at first but the accomodations did not disappoint. In fact they exceeded expectations. The staff was welcoming and friendly but never instrusive- a must for a proper vacation. From the pillowtop bedding to the comfortably furnished family room, everything felt as if I were staying in my own personal vacation home not simply a hotel. The cottages are a wonderful blend of classic beach charm and modern convenience. The views and sounds of the harbor were incredible. It is still hard to believe a place could feel so private and be so close to all the attractions of Charleston. I would love to return for another stay. My only suggestion would be to advertise that there is a cottage available for handicapped travelers ( no steps up to the porch.)

There are 10 cottages with the harbor view; they have large palm trees, bamboo and lush greenery lining the walkway to the pool which has an exclusive air and serenity right out of the Great Gatsby. I have never experienced a more relaxing atmosphere in my life. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

In May of 2008, my family rented 5 cottages for my wife and I's wedding weekend. We have family in the Charleston area so we are familiar with all the lodging options downtown, on Mt. Pleasant, Sullivan's, Isle of Palms, Kiawah -- you name it.

The Belvidere is the best lodging option available in the Charleston area, and here's why. It has all the luxury of Charleston Place or The Sanctuary, but the Belvidere's cottages provide more space and privacy, have all the amenities with screened porches -- and the resort has a pool, private beach, and is conveniently located to downtown. There's no doubt it is the best-kept secret in the Charleston area. It's a gem. The views of the water are spectacular.

The cottages are elegant, cozy, spacious, and immaculately kept with hardwood floors, fireplaces, plush leather seating, four-poster beds, washers and dryers, beautifully decorated, fully-equipped kitchen, etc.

The other advantage of the resort is its location. It's tucked away on Patriot's Point, right over the Ravenel Bridge -- a quick drive from downtown. Every morning we walked the Ravenel Bridge, which is beautiful. The resort is convenient in the sense that it's very close to downtown, but it also is removed so it's quieter and private. All of the wedding activities were downtown, yet everyone agreed that staying at the resort was convenient for getting to the activities while having peace away from them.

I can't say enough good things about this resort. We plan on making a trip annually.

This place is outstanding! We got an incredible rate for an examplary setting!!!! I am very particular about where I stay and I must say that The Belvidere Resort exceeded our expectations in all areas. This place truly felt comfortable and the service was excellent by everyone we encountered from from desk to housekeeping. Plus, the coconut cake is scrumptious. The grounds were beautifully manicured . The clubhouse was lovely to visit each morning for breakfast out by the pool as we sat on the very comfortable patio furniture. The proximity to Historic Charleston is amazing...just a few short minutes from our cottage, over the bridge and into town! The cottage itself is tastfully decorated and spacious. We still talk about this place just about everyday, saying how much we sure miss the Belvidere. We highly recommend this place and we can't wait to go back.......once the rates are a value again!
