We had a wonderful experience at 21 East Battery. We stayed in the Quarters and found it charming and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting in the lovely court yard and on the Piazza of the main house where the harbor view is lovely. Our innkeeper Julie took care of us like a fairy godmother. She tidied up while we were out... More

We stayed at the Inn for 3 nights with another couple in May. The Quarters offered the perfect accommodations for us -- beautifully decorated, comfortable, historic. We could walk everywhere in the historic district and along the battery waterfront. Innkeeper Julie made us wonderful baked goods and quiches to enjoy each morning, all selected to our individual tastes. Couldn't have... More

"Slice of heaven" best describes the Carriage House at 21 East Battery. From the moment we arrived, everything was letter perfect. Julie Lucas, the Innkeeper, was a consummate host. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and at home. I wanted to surprise my wife with a stay in one of Charleston's "gems", and I hit... More

Two of my colleagues and I were lucky enough to find lodging recently at the 21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast. My colleagues had never been to Charleston - and had barely even been to the South. Julie, our manager, made their stay (and mine) unforgettable. We stayed in the "dependency", a separate two story building all our own. Beautifully... More

Four of us stayed a night at 21 East Battery in April of this year. In spite of a bit of rain we absolutely loved "The Quarters." The comfort and history of the place were amazing. We were so happy and comfortable we didn't leave after arriving. The Innkeeper thought of everything. A delicious breakfast was in the refrigerator ready... More

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,...
