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

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Palmer Home mid January 2015. Greeted by private -off street- parking, a true southern home dating to 1849 was welcoming and very comfortable. Our room was in the carriage house, was clean and ready when we arrived! The staff was outstanding and always ready and willing to help with all my inquiries. The breakfast... More

I guess I have learned to take reviews on this site with a grain of salt. The view of Charleston Harbor was the best part of our stay. Ashley did an excellent job making dinner arrangements. The room on the other hand was very disappointing. We had a living room, bath & bedroom. All three were heated with small space... More

We stayed in the Carriage house at amost 400.00 per nite ($1252.00) for 3 nites. It was dirty, old beat up furniture, Dog or cat hair all over the Bed Comforters, coffer maker nasty, remotes to the tv didn't work, the bathroom is so small you hardly had room to turn around. If you opened the shower door it would... More

I was in attendance for the Christmas party. It was spectacular. Not just the decor, but the party atmosphere was as festive as I had hoped only in my dreams. Francess Palmer is the most graceful & FUN hostess I've ever been privileged to know.

My husband and I stayed at the Palmer Home for four days in November, 2014, and loved each moment. Our room was comfortable and spacious, the food was just right, and the historical details were amazing. Each morning, we enjoyed a southern breakfast and a second-story view of the Charleston Harbor, and in the evenings, we watched the moonrise from... More

The Palmer Home B&B was an exceptional treat. It is one of the grandest homes along the battery wall in Charleston. Stepping through the front door is like stepping back in time - and up in social class. We could truly imagine what it would be like to live in the town home of a wealthy South Carolina plantation owner... More

I have to remember that I chose a B&B for a reason. Well, the Palmer Home is the core of that reason. Big, rambling house, with quirky people all around. Lots of history. Breakfast is good, not great. Happy hour is hit or miss, but when it is hit it is wonderful. The participants are often repeat guests with stories.... More
