The 1837 has such charm and warmth, and it's a wonderful place to spend a few days while you explore historic Charleston. We stayed in the carriage house, room 3, which is a small suite. We were travelling with our 17 year old daughter to visit the College of Charleston. The proximity to the campus is great, as well as... More

We found the 1837 very nice. We were not completely happy with our rooms being changed to the 3rd floor. It was difficult with bad knees. Also the water pressure was not very good even though the rooms were nice. The manager could not have been more helpful.. She went out of her way for us. So very pleasant. It... More

This place is wonderful. We stayed in one of the carriage rooms and it was perfect. The staff is super helpful, the beds were comfortable,& the breakfasts and afternoon tea were stellar. The entire historic district is within walking distance as well as every food option you could want. We will for sure be back. Parking is a little tight... More

On our small roadtrip along US east coast we stopped in Charleston SC. This B&B is among the very best we have experienced while travelling. This B&B house is excactly what you hope for when you imagine the southern parts of USA, large porch or rather Piazza as the are called down here. The room we stayed in was the... More

I live in Charleston and have stayed downtown for an evening or two at some of the hotels. The bed and breakfast was such a great experience! The rooms were not in as tight quarters as I had expected when I thought of a bed and breakfast. Great location to some stellar restaurants! The staff was so incredibly friendly and... More

My wife and I stayed in this charming bed and breakfast with no complaints. It's a beautiful old home. Our room was clean and cozy. The bathroom was very nice in #2-2. The staff was helpful and very pleasant. We brought our bycicles and tied them to the porch. No one seemed to mind. It is a great location. Two... More

I wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday and I found this gem! We only stayed for one night, but it was by far one of the best places I have stayed in Charleston.

The 1837 B&B is a very comfortable place to spend a visit to Charleston. The location is perfect and Erin, the manager, is a big help with things to do as well as being an excellent cook.

We just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay in room 3-2 of this historic house. The location puts you an easy 10 minute walk to the historic downtown area, or, about 2 minutes to the free trolley to everywhere you'll want to go. The room itself was totally comfortable including an excellent mattress, modern, roomy bathroom (including plenty of... More
