We had a celebratory birthday (2 night stay) at The Palmer Home in March 2015. It was wonderful. The view is spectacular and the owner is delightful! We had the King Room and it was beautifully decorated. The porch was a wonderful addition. We also enjoyed the owner's dog and cat. The cat seemed to take a liking to us... More

We stayed for three nights at the Palmer House. Had a wonderful stay. Our room was the king room on the third floor. Antique furnishings, lovely bedding, a beautiful fireplace in the room. We had a small shower only bathroom but hey when the house was built it didn't even have barrooms. We had a door from our room leading... More

A stay at the Palmer Home B&B offers not just the ideal base from which to explore Charleston but also a first hand taste of Lowcountry manners and mores. Miss Francess Palmer is the real thing: a Southern lady, whose family has owned the Palmer Home for generations, and a born raconteur, who delights in telling stories, about the city,... More

I selected this B&B for the location and what I hoped would be historic southern charm. Yes, the house is historic but is sorely missing southern charm. We have visited numerous B&Bs in many states. This one was not well kept. There were cobwebs and filthy windows. The welcome was lacking and the breakfast was pathetic...all for $300/night. Very glad... More

We stayed at the Palmer home recently for two nights and stayed in two different rooms. The front room has the most incredible view - it is amazing. The down side is that your bathroom is across the hall, but it has a stall shower and large bathroom. Staying in the home is very interesting in that it is like... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for a stay-cation, and we were blown away by the beauty and hospitality of this special B&B. One-of-a-kind view of the water and w/in walking distance for any activity downtown. I've lived in Charleston for over seven years now and have seen almost every hotel / b&b downtown from having friends and family visit... More

I have stayed here numerous times and have nothing but great experiences and have left with fabulous and unforgettable memories! The breakfast is country style with eggs, fruit, biscuits, grits and the best bacon you've ever put into your mouth!!! My tradition is to make my plate with a cup of fresh coffee and sit on the pizzazz to people... More

This was our third trip to Charleston and each time we have stayed at the Palmer Home. We have stayed in the guest rooms as well as the carriage house. The guest rooms are clean and cozy and the carriage house is roomy and great for weekend getaways with friends. The staff is always friendly and helpful & the view... More
