There was nothing better, after a lovely day in downtown Charleston, than to come back to the beautiful Coach House at 21 East Battery Bed & Breakfast. Those rocking chairs on the balcony were occupied for hours, by two very happy campers, then after they left, my wife and I sat in them. Seriously though, such a beautiful place to... More

We spent a most delightful 5 nights at the B&B in late February. Julie took wonderful care of us, ensuring we had anything needed, and provided delicious daily breakfasts -quiches, fruits, and baked goods. She was particularly knowledgable about suggesting interesting sites to visit, and places to eat dinner. The location is perfect - just across from the harbor, and... More

21 East Battery is one of a kind. Charming, historic, impeccably restored, wonderful ambience, incredible views over the harbor and Ft. Sumter, cocktails on the piazza of the Edmonston Alston house, extraordinary hospitality by Julie the innkeeper, around the corner from some of the most beautiful streets in Charleston, great parking...what more could one ask for? Can't wait to come... More

Marvelous historic setting and impeccable service. Julie, the caretaker, looks after the guests as if they were family and showers them with delicious home-baked treats. This was our second post-Christmas holiday in a row and have decided to make it an annual tradition (hence we have already reserved for next year). You can leave your car parked in the drive...

To celebrate my wife's birthday, we visited Charleston for three days and stayed at 21 East Battery based upon consistently excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. It is located in one of most historic and physically beautiful areas of the city, and is within walking distance of the best restaurants and shops. 21's innkeeper, Julie, took great care of us,...

This is a fantastic place to stay and gives you a real look into the historical character of the city. I've stayed before at Charleston Place and it's a luxury hotel, but at the end of the day you can experience that anywhere else in the world. This is truly a unique Charleston experience. The décor is great and matches... More

If you want to be a tourist stay in a hotel. If you want a true Charleston experience stay at 21 East Battery. The location, ambiance and hospitality are absolutely wonderful! My husband and I could have just stayed on the beautiful historic property and felt like we had seen Charleston. We hope to return to Charleston again and stay... More

21 East Battery was perfect, the decor was cozy & visually interesting. The welcoming warm walnut banana bread was amazing upon arrival. The kitchenette was perfect for storing leftovers & reheating, the crab quiche and other breakfast items were amazing. The fridge was always stocked with water, juice, fresh fruit & yogurt. Julie is such a good cook & wonderful... More

After an amazing, busy wedding weekend out at the plantations, we wanted to enjoy some down time on the Battery to enjoy downtown Charleston for our mini-moon for a few days. We were originally planning to only stay 2 nights, but while enjoying the beautiful scenery, weather and wonderful breakfast by Julie on the Carriage House balcony during our first... More

Tucked behind a classic early nineteenth century seaside mansion via a narrow brick drive, the two units of 21 East Battery are an oasis of quiet and green, just a few minutes walk from the center of the historic district. We stayed in the Carriage House for two nights in mid-October and were impressed by the care and taste that... More
