Beautiful historic home located in a wonderful historic city. Quaint, unusual room with period decor plus all the necessary amenities for the modern day. Fantastic breakfast ...the best we had the entire week staying in different B&Bs and inns all over Charleston. Super friendly, helpful staff that helped us secure a reservation the next few nights elsewhere (our room wasn't... More

I did not like to walk up two flights of stairs. That was the only negative of the whole stay. Everything else was great. I am not a writer so to write 200 words is to much for this old mind. I just know that I enjoyed my visit and would stay there again.

Matt was a wonderful host. Excellent breakfast. Only wish I could have gotten the recipe for the pineapple French toast and the sausage balls. If you want the best then 1837 B&B is what you're llooking for. Looking forward to next stay.

I enjoyed the b&b my wife prefers more modern comforts unlike a floorboard that slopes, I like the character.The bedroom was charming and gave the feel of 200 years ago or more, very cool if this is what you are looking for, especially if you like history Breakfast was nothing special I would of preferred bacon eggs and sausage perhaps...

Here is your opportunity to experience historic Charleston by staying at a fabulous Bed & Breakfast just blocks away from the heart of the city! 1837 refers to the year that the house was mentioned in a will. The main part of the house is believed to have been built prior to 1818.The back extension was built in the early... More

Such a charming B&B in the heart of the historic district! Our room was beautifully appointed and very quiet. Breakfast was scrumptious and the afternoon tea was something we looked forward to. The owner is exceedingly congenial and goes to great lengths to make his guests feel welcome as well as informed.

We stayed 5 nights, and it was a truly wonderful stay. The staff were brilliant and helped with booking trips and ensuring everything was perfect. The owner was in attendance every day and took great pride in ensuring that guests were well looked after. Our room was spotlessly clean and traditionally furnished. Breakfast was delightful and could be taken inside... More

We enjoyed our stay at 1837 B&B very much. This is a large traditional Charleston home converted for use as a b&b whilst retaining all its original charm. So very traditional comfort. The rooms are reached via piazzas (verandahs) which are linked by outside staircases. Rooms are traditionally furnished. A traditional southern breakfast is provided with little choice. The proprietors... More

The staff were very helpful and offered good advice on sightseeing options and restaurants. Breakfasts were very good for those of you who enjoy a hearty meal. If you only want a light breakfast they... More

We spent two nights and the 1837 Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in Room #1 and it was just lovely. The canopy bed and furnishings were very well appointed. The bathroom was nice and modern and clean. It was located very conveniently off of King Street and everything was within a 15 minute walking distance. Samantha greeted us and even... More
