Just off East Battery, you get the best of Charleston SC. Tucked away from the road you have seclusion but only steps from the Battery itself. The centre of Charleston is a few minutes walk. This is not a traditional B and B in that Julie, who is an excellent host, leaves breakfast goods and snacks in the property for... More

Had a wonderful stay in the carriage house. We were within walking distance from just about everything. We loved the decor, how clean everything was, and the friendly yet quiet atmosphere. Charleston certainly has the best manners of the South. Next time we are in town we will certainly stay here.

From the moment we arrived in the beautifully shaded parking area, covered with moss-draped ancient oak and palm tree, we knew we had made the right choice! Julie came out and welcomed us, and gave us a quick, relaxing tour of the carriage house where we stayed. This is place is old and historical, but with all of the modern... More

My husband and I stayed at the B&B in October 2013 for our honeymoon! I could not have asked for a better place to have stayed and experience the charming city of Charleston. The location of this historic house is perfect. You are only blocks away from everything you could possibly want to do! We never even had to move... More

We read all of the reviews of 21 East Battery B&B and it lived up to all the excellent reviews. A great location that is away from noise and hustle but still close enough to get to with a short walk. Julie was so gracious and the breakfasts and sweets she left for us in our kitchen were so appreciated... More

Perfect Charleston Location on the Battery overlooking the harbor, and filled with historical relevance. It is part of the Edmunston-Alston House (which has tours daily, but because your apartment or apartments are set back and secluded in the garden area , it is most tranquil. AND, As far as the HOSPITALITY part of your accommodations --the manager Julie is a... More

We stayed at 21 East B&B for our 40th anniversary and enjoyed our stay. More importantly, my wife thought the entire trip was perfect, and 21 East B&B was a large part of that. The Quarters were clean and Julie, the innkeeper, was a blessing and a great help during our stay. There was a complementary tour of the main... More

Why would you choose to stay any other place in Charleston? Five Stars for 21 E Battery! A private two story historic residence was our home for two days this past week (May 6th&7th) - located in the VERY Best area of the historic district, secluded down a private drive past the 1825 Edmonston-Alston House. Our home was an historic... More

21 East Battery is perfect for a weekend in Charleston. You will think your GPS is broken because you are pulling up in front of the nicest house on the nicest street in the heart of the historical waterfront -- but that is where you are staying. The property is immaculate and spacious, and Julie the innkeeper is a wonderful... More

We stayed at 21 East Battery in March and had a perfect weekend. The location is walkable to the historic district but in a quieter section away from the restaurants and crowds. The water across the street is beautiful to look at during the day and at night. You have the entire house to yourself which includes an eat in... More
