During the entire month of October, The Vendue is offering a nightly one-of-a-kind experience surrounding one of Charleston's most mysterious dwellers, Edgar Allan Poe, with their Nevermore Package. This exclusive package is only available in one guest room of the hotel. The room has been outfitted with period décor and curiosities from several of Poe’s short stories and poems.
Edgar Allan Poe’s connection to the Charleston area dates back to 1827 when he was stationed at Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island. Little is known about Poe’s thirteen month stint at Fort Moultrie, but his time on Sullivan’s Island inspired the setting of one of his most well-known short stories “The Gold Bug.”
“With so much turmoil transpiring throughout everyone’s lives over the past seven months, we wanted to inject a little fun and wonderment for our guests and staff to experience,” said Kris Altman, the hotel’s marketing representative. “What better way than to embrace some of Charleston’s mysterious history during the spooky month of October and create a package full of sensory surprises to bring some excitement back in our lives – even if it’s just for a night.”
The Nevermore Package includes an imaginative escape for two themed around the dark works of Poe. Package highlights include: complimentary valet parking, in-room cognac & special welcome amenity, $100 dining credit to the hotel’s restaurant, Revival, and a memorable turndown offering. Of course, there will be plenty of surprises along the way.
Though, there is no need to be afraid of this eerie experience. Remember, as Poe so eloquently stated, “all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
The Vendue is located at 19 Vendue Range, Charleston, SC. For more details about the Nevermore Package, visit thevendue.com/nevermore
