Owner Story

I love traveling, my family, my dog, green tea, coffee, sushi, making music, nutrition, reading, meeting new people, and living life to the fullest. I work for Yelp and put on public events in Charleston. I've lived in Atlanta, GA; Los Angeles, CA; Jupiter, FL; Chattanooga, TN; New Haven, CT; Athens, GA; and now I live in Charleston, SC and NEVER want to leave. I live by the motto "Leave nothing behind but good will". I'm a big believer in karma and care about quality control in what I do. I hope to not only be a good host, but your friend and guide (if needed) during your stay here in the best city in America :) I want you to also see whats good in the locals eyes and not just what is marketed to the tourists.

Great house, lots of space, lounging areas & great location!


December 2021

We took our grown daughters and had a great time at Lemon Drop. The house was well appointed and in a great location, just a short walk to King Street. We especially loved having wine and coffee in the front room, they even left us some yummy coffee. Wished we could have stayed longer but will definitely come back and stay at Lemon Drop. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.


October 2021

Great house, convenient location to king st and other great restraints and bars. Clean and great experience.


September 2021

Beautifully restored home within walking distance to some of the best restaurants/ shops. The house was very clean and they provided plenty of fresh towels. The neighborhood is currently under construction with new developments and the work starts early (even on weekends). This didn't bother our group so I would definitely recommend the Lemon Drop for your Charleston visit!
