You have the whole house to yourselves. Tapawingo is an older, rustic two story cabin / cottage which we are continuously upgrade. Set on 3 acres of forest, gardens and a pond, the house is secluded and very private. Ideal for a romantic getaway, honeymoon or just to totally relax and disconnect. Great place to read from our personal library. Perfect for two people.
Downstairs is a French country kitchen set up for serious cooking, with fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave, cozy living room, the bathroom with toilet, sink and double headed shower. A large screened in porch area with sofa and comfy chairs and outdoor dining table is most inviting.
Or you can dine on the three tear open decks surrounded by our forest. Here is the outdoor fire place for a bonfire. On the entrance deck on other side of the house is a charcoal BBQ.
Upstairs are the two bedrooms with queen beds, one with small deck, a TV den and the second bathroom with sink and claw-footed iron bath tub.
It was here that Neal Petersen and Billie Baldwin wrote the National Outdoor Book Award winner, Neal's autobiography "Journey of a Hope Merchant" and Neal's solo around the world racing yacht is on the property.
Ride the tandem to the village 5 min away and get locally caught, fresh shrimp at the local store on the dock. Dine in one of the four spots to eat, go for hikes in the forest or kayak in the rivers and intercoastal water way. So much to do, just relax at Tapawingo and read our books.
Absolutely NO PETS and NO YOUNG CHILDREN. Please do not even ask, as the answer is NO. If these rules are broken we will withhold the entire deposit. We live by the Golden Rule and Karma, and willing to help in any way we can, but expect our guests to respect our home and behave accordingly.
This was my 3rd or 4th visit to Tapawingo, and it always feels so welcoming and comfortable. This magical, rustic home is so unique and just a short drive from everything wonderful in McClellanville. I'll be back!

Romantic, perfect place to relax.
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. It's the perfect spot to relax, away from it all. However, it's still close to Charleston, a town you should not miss to visit.
The cottage is very clean with a superb equipped kitchen. The cosy bedrooms make you want to have a sleep in every morning. But our favorite momets were to enjoy the patio with its beautiful view into the garden.
We would definitely come back for another stay.
Sandy and family
