We stayed four nights at Cabell House and loved it. Our room was beautiful as was the house and neighbourhood. You walk out the door and can explore for hours. Randi and the staff were very friendly and inviting.hosts. The breakfasts were wonderful also. I especially loved sitting on the side porch at the end of the day with a... More

This bed and breakfast is in a perfect location and that is really the best part about staying here. It is both quiet and convenient to just about everywhere in Charleston. There is parking on the side of the house; but it can be quite tight.We stayed in the Randolph Room which is very small and the bathroom is outside... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in Charleston for the night on a road trip from Miami to DC. Our dog, Mauii, weighs about 100 lbs and was traveling with us. We found the Cabell House on Bring Fido. We were very pleased with the B&B! We had very limited interactions with the innkeepers but were given our room (very pretty!)... More

Randy met us at the door and was a perfect host. The house is very nice and she and Casey keep it up to any B&B's standards. The rooms are priced according to size but the home cooked breakfast is the same for all and extremely good. This house is located in a very quaint area.

My fiancé and I took a weekend getaway to Charleston after we got engaged in April 2013. We were in Charleston over Memorial Day weekend which was also Spoleta. We stayed on the top floor room, which was great! Very spacious two-bedroom suite. The shower was tiny, but we didn't mind because the bathroom also boasted a beautiful sunken tub... More

My husband and I booked this B&B for the weekend to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We have stayed in many B&Bs before and, based on all the great reviews we read about, we thought this would be an excellent place to stay. We arrived at 2:30 on Friday, and there was no one around to greet us. We waited for... More

My wife and I had a lovely time staying at the Cabell House this past weekend. The owner Randy was a wonderful host. The breakfast was very good and our room (Nathaniel Room) and adjoining bathroom were well appointed and clean. My only regret is that we didn't spend much time at the house getting to know the other guests... More

We were to stay at another hotel for an overnight in Charleston that was part business and part pleasure. We had made a reservation for a "pet friendly" room because it was last minute and we had to bring our dog. When we got to that hotel, they informed us that pet-friendly meant the dog was not allowed alone in... More

We have stayed here twice. We love the Cabell House. The owner is always very welcoming, the breakfast is great, and the location is within walking distance of almost anything you would like to do in Historic Charleston. I highly recommend this B&B!

Our stay was wonderful overall. It was my first time staying at a B&B and overall, I was very pleased. Randy, was incredibly welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful, without being overly talkative or "clingy". She made sure to have our favorite selection of wine out and available at all times. We felt very comfortable in the home and with the friendly... More
