If I could give 21 East Battery and Julie the Innkeeper a higher rating than five, I would. We spent two wonderful nights in the Carriage House to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. Both the location and the property are beautiful. It is quiet and private but located in the heart of downtown. Julie was friendly, helpful and a great cook.... More

My wife and I stayed recently for the third time and were not disappointed. As usual the service by Julie the Innkeeper was top notch and the breakfast/baked goods were outstanding! The location is perfect as you can park your car and walk easily to most things in downtown Charleston. Only minor want would be a bigger table in the... More

My husband surprised me on our 21st wedding anniversary with a stay at this beautiful property. Our inn keeper Julie was so sweet and took the best care of us! We felt like a member of our family was spoiling us during a stay. The anniversary cake Julie left for us was such a nice surprise. The house tour was... More

The rooms were clean, Julie went out of her way to accommodate us. She even baked a delicious cake for our anniversary! Our stay was perfect and so is the location - right on the Battery minutes from shopping, restaurants and historic sites, and the inn IS a historic site in itself!!!

We enjoyed our stay at 21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast very much, the Wife and I had one room and our two teenage girls had the other, it was great. We enjoyed having a quiet breakfast in the suite, sitting on the porch watching the bay, sightseeing in town by horse drawn carriage, walking along the waterfront as well... More

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
