Dog Friendly Adventures at the John Rutledge House Inn

Meet Daisy and Coco: two adorable little dachshunds we had the pleasure of hosting at the John Rutledge House Inn just a few weeks ago.

Daisy, Coco and their parents Mr. and Mrs. Urrutia were on the lookout for pet-friendly hotels in Charleston. They searched and stumbled upon our inn on Broad Street – we’re glad they did. Hosting guests as sweet and fun as these four is always a pleasure. We hosted Mr. and Mrs. Urrutia in one of our dog-friendly carriage houses. Set inside our courtyard, just a few yards away from the main house, our carriage houses are perfect for families, especially those traveling with pups.

Our concierge Cassie caught up with the Urrutias one afternoon in the courtyard, just after tea time. They chatted about dog travel in Charleston while Daisy and Coco sniffed around at the first floral scents of spring.

Cassie said-

“The Urrutias were able to take their dogs everywhere while walking through downtown Charleston. Coco and Daisy spent time on King Street, Meeting Street, and an afternoon in White Point Gardens. Mr. and Mrs. Urrutia told us how incredibly pet-friendly they found Charleston to be. One evening, they even took the pups out to dinner at Il Cortile del Re on King Street. They sat in the restaurant’s hidden courtyard and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Here, the whole family was treated to a great meal and a lovely table. Yeah for dog-friendly Charleston restaurants!

Our accommodations suited the Urrutias perfectly. They really enjoyed being nestled away with the dogs inside the carriage house.  Here, they were confident that Daisy and Coco would not be a bother to dog-less guests. They appreciated being in a pet-friendly room on the first floor, as they could easily take the dogs for a walk or out into the courtyard at any time.

Mr. Urrutia told me that they loved their room, and even said it was ‘the best room we’ve ever stayed in that is pet-friendly.’

Pet-friendly feelings aside, Mr. and Mrs. Urrutia enjoyed going up to our piazza after dinner to enjoy a nice glass of port to wind down.”

Sounds like a lovely visit! Thank you to the Urrutias for sharing your memories with us. We can’t wait to see y’all back in Charleston again with Daisy and Coco in tow.
